Those new to it will have to adapt their favorite recipes or start from scratch. There is so much to know, and it is easy to make mistakes while cooking. Beginning with some recipes to guide will help make the transition to clean eating that much easier. Add these recipes to your meal rotation.
Salmon Caesar Salad
Do you love a Caesar salad? You can still have them on a clean diet if you make the dressing yourself. There are too many preservatives to fit into the plan with premade dressing bottles. If you make your own, you avoid this common mistake. Eating Well has a delicious Salmon Caesar Salad recipe to follow to make it perfect. If you are not a fan of salmon, try adding chicken or steak instead. No one said you must follow everything perfectly. Add your favorite protein to this salad, and it will be amazing.
Chicken Veggie Packets
Those who love meal prep will love this recipe for Chicken Veggie Packets. Instead of cooking all the servings together, you separate them into individual servings before cooking. Clean eating is always thought to be time-consuming because you are creating most things from scratch. However, there are many recipes like this one that takes no time and will help you prep ahead for future meals. By creating servings, you can easily stash them in the fridge and reheat them when you need a quick meal. This way, you won’t cheat on your diet because you have nothing prepared.
Calico Scrambled Eggs
Breakfast does not need to be boring. Spice it up by adding something extra to your eggs. Take a look around the fridge and see what vegetables you have that would go well with your eggs. Taste of Home offers their idea with the Calico Scrambled Eggs recipe. They add green peppers, onion, tomato, and a few spices. Make it your own and take some chances on other vegetables that you have on hand. Never stray away from the diet because the food is bland. Eating should always be an enjoyable occasion.
No-Bake Healthy Chocolate Chip Blondies
Eating clean does not mean that you must do away with desserts. There are many options out there to help you eat right and enjoy a treat. A popular recipe is these No-Bake Healthy Chocolate Chip Blondies. They avoid using any of the taboo ingredients and taste as if you did use them. Another perk to this recipe is that no oven is needed. All you need is one pan and a fridge. While it may take a little planning as they need to be in the refrigerator for a couple of hours before eating, they are well worth the wait.
