I’ve been trying to document the meals we’ve eaten recently, especially when I make a homemade dinner. We almost always eat very clean, and this should help me remember ideas when I’m meal planning. I thought it also may help some people with their own lunch and dinner brainstorming.
Under each picture I have a brief description. If this coordinates with one of my recipes, or a recipe I’ve found online, I’ve added the link.
I hope this is helpful! I’m always open to dinner ideas, so if you have some clean eating meals you love, please post them in a comment!
Thanks for reading!
Kale salad! So so so delicious. I posted a link to the recipe a couple weeks ago. You may feel sorry for Todd because I feed him all this “girly,” healthy food, but we both loved this! It does have a little mayonnaise, but you can leave that out if you want it to truly be clean.
This was my lunch one day. An omelet with spinach, butternut squash (I had some roasted squash leftover), sautéed mushrooms (also leftover), onion, and goat cheese. With half an avocado on the side. Oh this was yummy!
Taco salad, sort of. This was spinach, cucumber, tomato, pepper, avocado, cheddar, egg, salsa verde, and sour cream.
This picture looks gross, but this salad was good! Would be great in cooler weather. Spinach, grilled chicken, braised white beans with thyme (leftover), roasted butternut squash (leftover), goat cheese, lemon juice, and olive oil.
Roasted cashews and almonds. I need to do a post for these on here. I did post the recipe on instagram. Basically you take raw almonds and cashews, toss them with olive oil, salt and pepper, and roast at 375 for 10 minutes. Then cool for 10 minutes. Great snack!
My mom made this, I can’t take the credit. Marinated and sautéed Greek chicken with a topping of spinach, sautéed grape tomatoes with garlic and kalamata olives, and topped with feta. Roasted broccoli and cauliflower, and braised white beans. Very delish!
My black bean soup.
Marinated and grilled chicken, steamed veggies (frozen mixed, organic veggies from Costco), and braised white beans with thyme. For the beans, I started with dried beans, soaked them overnight, then cooked slowly in chicken stock and water. Added butter, thyme, and bay leaves. Then once they were soft enough to eat, seasoned with salt and pepper.
Another spaghetti squash night. This time after I cooked the squash, I sautéed it in a pan with pesto, cherry tomatoes, leftover grilled chicken. Top with goat cheese and cracked red pepper.
Healthy “cobb” salad. Spinach, avocado, broccoli, grape tomato, egg, cucumber, and Greek yogurt-herb “ranch” dressing. Here is the dressing recipe.
My healthy go-to breakfast. I’ve been slacking for the past week and have eaten cereal, but this is way better! Smoothie with spinach, berries, almond butter, flax seed, water, and almond milk. Coffee with organic half and half and stevia.
Salad with spinach, cucumber, leftover bbq grilled chicken, avocado, goat cheese. We used the Greek yogurt ranch dressing posted above.
Spinach salad with turkey bacon, grape tomatoes (the reason for all of the grape tomatoes is that they grew well in our garden!), grilled chicken, avocado, cheddar, cilantro, and a honey mustard vinaigrette (honey, yellow mustard, whole grain mustard, apple cider vinegar, extra virgin olive oil).
Scrambled egg with spinach, avocado, and sriracha in a wrap.
Salmon with peach salsa, steamed broccoli, and black beans and brown rice.
