Clean Eating Meal Prep Guide (Week 9) – Weekly Meal Prep tips featuring clean, whole food recipes.  Always simple and always family friendly! 

This week I will be sticking to a Paleo/Whole30 plan as much as possible.  Christmas is only 9 days away and I know I will be indulging in plenty of goodies and decadent meals!  Also, everything here is made (or partially made) in the Instant Pot!

In this weekly series, I share what I’m prepping for the week ahead.  Pre-prepping is my secret for grabbing breakfast on the way out the door and makes packing lunches a breeze.  Not to mention it cuts the food budget and reduces the urge to cheat!

For my Top 10 Clean Eating Meal Prep tips, check out this post!

For me, meal prep involves making one or two breakfast and lunch choices for the week ahead, some healthy snacks, and a few ingredients for dinner.  If I have extra in-season produce, I will also prep and freeze it.  My meal prep sessions usually take an hour or two at the most and always include my favorite tunes cranked up in the background!

Here is this week’s plan…
