7 Day Clean Eating Meal Plan (Jan 2-8) – My healthy meal plan for the week ahead. All recipes are family friendly with only whole food ingredients, easy to prepare, and include nutritional info.

Hello and Happy New Year! Thank you all so much for continuing to visit my site this year, supporting my blog, and for all the wonderful feedback and shares!

I always look forward to the lazy days between the holidays, and especially enjoy using that time to plan and set goals for the new year ahead. This year is no exception and I have to say I’m not sad to see 2021 come to a close! My theme for 2022 is Wellness and I hope you’ll follow along in this space as I share tips, recipes, and plenty of inspiration for maintaining a healthy balanced lifestyle. To kick off the new year, I’m sharing some of my favorite nutrient dense, family-friendly meals that won’t cause any extra meal-time stress.

If you’re looking to stock up on high quality meat for your meals, be sure to check out the current ButcherBox New Year Bundle promotion. They are offering 7 lbs of Free meat with your first order, including 2 lbs of ground beef, 3 lbs chicken thighs, and a 3 lb pork butt. This is a wonderful deal and I can’t say enough about how much I love this company and their meat!

About the 7 Day Clean Eating Meal Plan

First and foremost, my clean eating meal plans are meant to be simple and family friendly. This is a great place to start if you’re new to clean eating or trying to implement healthy changes into your diet. I take all of the guesswork out by providing recipes that are free of processed food ingredients and easy to prepare with minimal steps. My Clean Eating Meal Plans include 7 dinner recipes that will typically feed a family of four (and sometimes even leftovers!), along with recipe suggestions for prep ahead breakfasts and lunches. This is the method that has worked best for me over the years for staying organized throughout the week, while still leaving a little wiggle room.

You may notice I share a lot of recipes that are made in the Instant Pot and Air Fryer. I love both of these tools because they make meal time (and meal prep) a total breeze. If you want to take some of the stress out of your daily dinner routine, I highly encourage you to invest in one or both of these appliances.

Of course, this meal plan is meant to be a guide only and meals can be switched or swapped to your liking. I like to keep my breakfast and lunch options relatively open but if you are wanting more structure there, feel free to add in more prepped ahead items. You’ll also find plenty of inspiration in my recipe archives and previous meal plans.
