7 Day Clean Eating Meal Plan (Sep 5-11) 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 Labor Day Weekend!
After a little break, I’m back with my weekly meal plans! It’s been a busy summer in our house, and I have missed sharing with all of you so much! Thank you for sticking with me and continuing to visit, share recipes, and comment on my site. I appreciate it more than you know!
Summer is winding down and school is back in swing. It’s a bittersweet time! Just a reminder that fresh produce is still abundant and I encourage you to take advantage of everything available in your local area and make the most of these last summer days. Here in West Michigan, that means plenty of sweet corn, zucchini, and fresh tomatoes. Summer is by far my favorite time of year for so many reasons, but most of all I love all the delicious seasonal produce, grilled meats, and backyard barbecues with family and friends. I’m always sad to see it coming to a close but the good news is there will be plenty to look forward to in the fall (aka soup season – yay!)
Here are a few highlights to keep you up to date:
My latest post for Grilled Steak Kabobs with Veggies is a family favorite and perfect for all that end of season grilling!
Don’t forget to take advantage of the end of summer barbecue ButcherBox deal right now. They are offering Free Chicken, Burgers, and Hot Dogs! This is an awesome end of summer deal – 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. This is because it makes meal time (and meal prep) a total breeze. It truly is a magical appliance that I couldn’t live without! If you don’t already own one, and want to take some of the stress out of your daily dinner routine, I highly encourage you to invest in an Instant Pot. As far as which model to purchase, I recommend the Duo. It’s one of the basic models without all the bells and whistles and is fairly inexpensive, but it does the trick and has held up perfectly for me over several years.
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.
