Healthy Clean Eating Plan is all about enjoying food, guilt-free. Food should bring joy, not pain. It should nourish and sustain us, not weigh us down.

The healthy clean eating plan is a guide for those who are looking to transition to a healthier lifestyle through the means of cleaning up their diets. This includes foods that could help in cleansing your body.

Healthy Clean Eating Plan

This easy clean-eating meal plan for weight loss features healthy whole foods and limits processed items to help you get back on track with healthy habits.

Week 1

How to Meal Prep Your Week of Meals:

A little prep at the beginning of the week goes a long way to make rest of the week easy.

  1. Meal prep the Greek Meatball Mezze Bowls to have for lunch on Days 2 through 5. Store in an air-tight container to keep fresh for the week. (To buy: amazon.com, $26 for 5-pack)
  2. Make a double batch of the Lemon-Tahini Dressing. You’ll use it throughout the week for lunch and dinner. Store in this classic glass salad dressing container. (To buy: amazon.com, $8)
  3. Cook a double batch of the Easy Brown Rice to use throughout the week. Store in a large glass meal-prep container. (To buy: amazon.com, $38) Because Day 1’s dinner—the Kale Salad with Beets & Wild Rice—calls for wild rice, you can choose to either prep a bigger batch of wild rice or swap in brown rice in the recipe so you’re not having to make two different rices.
