Clean Eating Meal Plan Week 8

Clean Eating Meal Plan week 8 #recipe #mealplan #cleaneating #realfood #dinnerideas #lunch #breakfast

This week, it’s time for a little spring cleaning. Now that the weather is warmer, I’ll be throwing open the windows to let in some fresh air and  get to cleaning this house from top to bottom. I clean everything from the baseboards to the closets and everything in between. As part of my spring cleaning, I clean out the kitchen too. I get in and clean the freezer and pantry cabinets too. Everything gets pulled out, sorted, and used in upcoming meals

Kitchen spring cleaning can get a little interesting when it comes to meal planning. I use what I have on hand and create meals that can get a little interesting.  This time around I found plenty of things to keep meals this week rather ordinary. In the pantry, there was plenty of vinegar and oil for salad dressings, raw nuts for salads and nut butters,  canned pickled beets, home canned peaches, pumpkin, lots of cheese, pasta, and potatoes. In the freezer, there was still plenty of chicken and ground beef from my last food co-op order, smoked salmon, and a few smoked sausage links. There was also some frozen rhubarb, strawberries, blackberries, and bananas that will be perfect for dessert and snacks. I still have fresh salad, carrots, tomatoes, and celery in the crisper. So, as you can seem there was plenty in my kitchen to create this week’s meals.

Many of this week’s meals and quick and easy. I’ll be roasting 2 chickens at the beginning of the week. One will be for dinner and the other will be shredded to use in other dishes throughout the week. This is a great time saver. This week, I’ve also added a few desserts into the mix. We all have a sweet tooth lately, so why not. Plus we are having friends over for playdates and things too. I always like to make some type of snack or tasty treat for guests when they are here. Nothing says hospitality like good food.

Below is our clean eating meal plan for this week. If you would like to see previous weeks’ meal plans, here they are:

  1. This is awesome! And so helpful for families wanting to eat clean. It makes “clean eating” sound a lot less intimidating to see an actual meal plan!

    • Clean eating doesn’t have to be difficult. I call it the cooking that our great grandmothers did, just with more variety and influence. I hope you enjoy the recipes.

    • Thanks and welcome to my blog Taralyn. I publish a new meal plan each week. Clean eating is the one “diet” I could get behind. I love my butter, bacon, bread, and veggies. :)
