Hello and Happy Weekend! We are in the home stretch of the 21 Day Clean Eating Challenge!  I hope along the way you have learned that healthy, mindful meals don’t have to be boring or complicated to make. The moral of the story here is so simple – choose whole, real ingredients, avoid processed foods and refined sugars, and plan ahead! Here you will find your Week Three Menu with Meal Prep and Shopping List.  Links to all recipes are listed below along with a printable menu.

Week Three Tips

If you’re not already, amp up your exercise game! Aim to get moving for at least 30 minutes, 4-5 days per week. Consider trying a new activity like a family hike, bike ride, swimming, or yoga.

Keep the momentum going by sharing your clean eating journey with friends and relatives. It’s common to fizzle out around this time when adopting something new. Recruiting an accountability partner(s) is a sure way to stay on track to your goals (and have fun along the way!)

As always, don’t forget to drink lots of water! Sip all day and aim for at least half your body weight in ounces.

Consider choosing organic chicken and grass fed beef whenever possible. The health benefits are well worth the extra cost and the taste is absolutely amazing! You can find plenty of good options in the store, or try ButcherBox, which is a subscription service delivered right to your door.
