Clean Eating Meal Plan 1

I think one of the biggest misconceptions about people who eat a very clean diet is that they must not eat very much food or the food they eat doesn't taste good. From the time Jake and I started eating whole foods our taste buds grew to love and appreciate the richness of clean food. We eat a ton of good food and never feel deprived of anything...ok well I feel a little deprived of Firehouse Subs but I am getting over that...slowly! 

I get asked often about what I cook for our family. I wanted to start sharing with you what I meal plan out for the upcoming week. Being a Momma of two littles I don't have a ton of time to make a bunch of gourmet dinners but I do try to switch it up weekly.  

Make sure you get as clean of meat as you can. This is where the most of our food money goes because it is the most important to us. Remember, whatever the animal you are eating was fed or injected with is in your meat therefore you are consuming it. 

Also, as a side note for my lunches during the week, I make a huge batch on Sundays and put them in glass containers (one for m-f) so that I never have an excuse not to eat.  I know what it is like fellow Momma, you need to feed you too! Jake usually takes the previous nights leftovers. 

Let me know if you have any questions! Happy Cooking!
