We regularly share real food, clean eating meal plans featuring healthy meals we cook at our house. We have recently started sharing grocery lists to accompany those meal plans.
That way you can print off the grocery list and easily recreate our meal plans in your home. This grocery list coincides with our October Clean Eating Meal Plan for Week 1.
Meal planning has been a life saving for our family. It helps us plan meals for the days ahead and prevents us from heading for take out at the last minute because we're too tired to think about dinner. Because we are trying to eat healthy, all of our meal plans are “clean eating” and contain real food. Clean eating may mean different things to different people. But for us, clean eating means eating whole real food ingredients that grow in nature. So that's what you will find here. If I buy packaged foods, they will only contain a few ingredients and be ones that I would normally use to cook from scratch.
If you are new to meal planning, take a look at our article “How to Create a Weekly Meal Plan.“ for tips and ideas that have worked for us.

Additional Real Food Meals
Our weekly real food meal plans include meal ideas and dinner recipes. They generally don't include lunches or breakfasts. Since I'm sharing my grocery list with you, it includes items we need for breakfast and lunch. So on the weekly grocery lists, I'll include what we're having for breakfast and lunch during that week. We are pretty laid back for both meals, so it won't be as formal as our dinner plans. But they will still help you create healthy breakfasts and lunches for you and your family.
As a note, I should mention that I'm shopping, cooking for, and feeding 5 people; 2 adults, a teenage boy, and 2 children. All three kids are going through growth spurts and eating me out of house and home.
Breakfast Meal Ideas
- Oatmeal with honey and cinnamon
