Meal Plan Series #2

Clean eating. What is it? What can you eat? What can’t you eat? There are a ton of different definitions and ideas out there about what exactly clean eating is and how to go about it. For us today, I’m going to take the super simple definition of it and use it to show you a “clean” meal plan!

Our simple definition of clean eating? Cut out processed foods, excess sugar, and focus on eating whole foods as much as possible so your body gets real, dense nutrition that keeps you healthy.

Again, there are many ins and outs of clean eating, and many ideas, but we are not going to get into that today. Clean eating doesn’t have to be some big scary thing, and it definitely does not mean that you can’t enjoy your food!

There may be certain seasons of your life that you want to make sure your body is in peak physical condition. Maybe it’s summer swimsuit season, maybe it’s a wedding or reunion, or that you just want to kick start your body. I’m going to tell you from experience that nutrition can truly make or break your results.

If you put clean, whole, healthy foods in your body, it will thrive. Feed it crap and processed, chemical foods, you’re going to have some problems. So, if you’re looking for a meal plan that will help your body nourish itself and give yourself a little kick start, give this simple meal plan a try!

Of course there are so many other clean eating recipes out there, and they are delicious! I kept this meal plan simple and somewhat repetitive to help with meal preparation. It’s easier to (and cheaper usually) to buy in bulk, and easier to prepare in batches so that you are setting yourself up for success when you want to clean up your diet for a week (or for life!).

Here is the grocery shopping list that you can use to see what you already have in your pantry and fridge, and what you still need!

More specific recipes will be coming soon to go along with this meal plan! Be sure to keep checking back on the blog this week as I release two more meals plans…one “busy and on the go” meal plan, and a special meal plan that features some delicious veggie inspired recipes if you are looking to fill your diet with more vegetables!
