Clean Eating Sample Menu

I've gotten a bunch of e-mails about people stuck in a rut with their clean diets or from those who still aren't sure what to eat. Here's a list of ideas to hopefully get you started or changing up your "daily usuals" a little bit!

Also remember to keep in mind: the best way to implement clean eating is to mess with recipes yourself in the kitchen. There are so many ways to tweak recipes to your preferences and ways to mix them up! You can also pick food items you like and think, "how can I make a clean version of this?" You usually can! Or at least make a clean-er version.

Breakfast Ideas
  • Scrambled egg whites
  • Overnight oats
  • Oatmeal
  • Clean Egg "McMuffin"
  • Non-fat Greek yogurt with berries
  • Steel-cut oats with berries
  • Grape fruit
  • Protein Pancakes (tons of varieties to make)
  • Veggie omelet (tons of options here! Mushrooms, bell pepper, spinach, etc.)
  • Protein Shake
Lunch and Dinner Ideas
  • Turkey burger patties with seasoning (love adding Mrs. Dash Original Blend!)
  • Brown rice with veggies
  • Spaghetti Squash
  • Oat flour crusted veggie pizza
  • Steamed fresh spinach with seasoning
  • Steamed mixed veggies
  • Salsa Chicken Bowl
  • Fit Girl Salad (I don't take credit for creating this salad by any means, but it's a fav of mine and I eat it all the time: baby greens, organic broccoli shreds, carrot shreds, peperoncinis, bell pepper, olives, lentils, provolone cheese, shredded turkey and a lemon citrus dressing or sometimes I go sans dressing since there are so many flavors in the salad already!)
  • Turkey Chili
  • Protein Pancakes (have 'breakfast' for lunch or dinner!)
Snacks
  • Almonds
  • Cottage Cheese (opt. add cinnamon/nutmeg for a little variety)
  • Greek yogurt
  • Homemade Protein Bars (I love Jaime Eason's protein bars)
  • Berries
  • Fruits
  • Salsa and Veggies
  • Hummus and Veggies
