7 Day Clean Eating Meal Plan
Whole Wheat Toast with Organic Cream Cheese and Real Fruits
The Clean Eating Diet isn’t about starvation but about consuming healthy, efficient and non-processed foods that can aid in weight loss.
The important factor of the Clean Eating Diet–and in my (humble) opinion any diet–is about becoming healthy.
And what a healthy way to start your 7 Day Clean Eating Meal Plan with this high-energy breakfast of whole wheat toast topped with organic cream cheese and fruits. It’s quick, easy and delicious.
Broccoli Cheddar Quinoa Bite from Alidas Kitchen
These bite-sized “cupcakes” are easy and tasty. With heart-friendly quinoa, vitamin-rich broccoli, and calcium-full cheddar, this is the type of meal both you and your kids can enjoy.
Find recipe at Alida’s Kitchen – quinoa broccoli cheddar bite. I tried it and loved it. Hope you do too.

Ground Turkey and Quinoa Stir Fry
Quinoa again? ABSOLUTELY!
As gluten-free grain, quinoa benefits people with digestive problems. It’s also tasty and versatile–and by versatile I mean that it can be cooked in many ways.
I usually add quinoa to salads, but decided to stir fry it with veggies and ground turkey tonight. It was equally delicious, and contains little fat.

Organic 8-grain Cereal with Walnuts, Raisins and Real Organic Maple Syrup
This was one of the most wholesome breakfast recipes I’ve tried. It was naturally sweetened real maple syrup and decorated with omega-3-rich walnuts and soft raisins. I LOVED-LOVED this breakfast! Hope you try it.
All-American Salad with romaine and radish, baked chicken breast, dried cranberries, mixed nuts and shredded cheese, topped with Greek yogurt blue cheese dressing.
Shrimp and Green Bean Stir Fry
I like combining protein with vegetables. Usually that combination comes in the form of salads but stir fry works too.
This shrimp and green bean stir fry was full of flavor, with a slight hint of garlic. It’s a great idea for shrimp-lovers. If you’re interested, find recipe at Clean Eating Stir Fry.
Whole Wheat Waffle with Real Maple Syrup, Scrambled Egg White and Avocado
Ginger Lime Chicken over Buckwheat Noodle
Baby Kale and Tomato Salad with All Natural Colby Jack Cheese
With kale’s high fiber content, tomato’s vitamins and cheese’s calcium, this salad was a colorful bowl of nutrients. It also tasted good, especially drizzled with your choice of healthy dressing. (I used Greek yogurt dressing, by the way.)
Cinnamon Chocolate Protein Bars (by the Gracious Pantry)
Protein bars are great for busy mornings because they’re easy and quick. But store-bought bars are expensive–and that’s why I recommend making your own. Plus, if you make them yourself, you know the exact ingredients included.
I found this recipe on The Gracious Pantry, another fantastic Clean Eating resource. I like the recipe because it uses pure ingredients and is rich in protein. The results were quite delicious too. You can find recipe at Clean Eating Chocolate Cinnamon Protein Bars. Hopefully you like it as much as I did.

Shrimp and Zucchini Stir Fry in Miso Lime Sauce
What a fantastic way to make shrimp! Lightly stir fried with zucchini slices in sweet and sour miso lime sauce, it’s flavorful, healthy and totally unique.

Nonfat Greek yogurt parfait with blueberries, strawberries and organic granola
Tomato, Avocado and Basil Open Face Sandwich
This was a simple lunch but extremely healthy and tasty. Not only was it great for the clean eating diet, it’s vegetarian- and vegan-friendly too.
Give it a try at Easy Healthy Lunch.
Tomato Egg and Shrimp Stir Fry
This vibrant meal is full of protein, beta carotene and calcium. Stir-fried in Asian flavors and tomato sauce, it was full of flavor too. The shrimp and eggs blended nicely with tomato and green onion–and the texture worked well with healthy grains like brown rice and quinoa.
The stir fry was a quick meal too, as eggs and shrimp needn’t long to cook. I absolutely enjoyed this clean eating dinner, and hope you do too.

Scrambled Eggs Topped with Avocado Slices and Feta
Turkey or Chicken Sandwich in Whole Wheat Artisan Bread with Lettuce, Olive Oil Mayo and Apple Slices
This would have been an ordinary sandwich except for the Apple slices, which added crunch. Apple’s natural sweetness mingled well with meat’s slightly salty flavor. It was a quick and delicious bite.
Balsamic Glazed Chicken (by Recipe Girl)
Balsamic vinegar’s sweet and tangy flavor always makes my mouth water. In a thick and glaze-y texture, it tastes even better. I can add balsamic vinegar to just about anything–and this balsamic glaze chicken was a delightful choice. Recipe Girl, a website I absolutely recommend, did a great job creating this dish.
FYI, I butterflied the chicken to ensure it cooked thoroughly, but other than that, the entire recipe was done step-by-step. And it was DELICIOUS!

Clean Eating Tuna and Egg Salad
Quick and protein-rich, this was an easy way to eat clean. If you like tuna sandwich, you’ll love this rendition of it. Find recipe at Clean Eating Tuna Salad by Best Clean Eating Recipes.
Steak (from Grass-Fed Beef) in all-natural rub and Steamed Squash with all natural brown cane sugar
Sunday dinners are important for our family, and we sometimes splurge. This steak dinner was expensive but worth every penny. Using grass-fed beef “cleaned” up the meal but still added plentiful iron and protein; and substituting potato, which generally serves as a side dish for steak, with sweet potato consisted less starch.
It was an easy meal to make too. Just rub seasoning all over meat, and broil in oven til’ meat’s done.
I hope you like this idea, and make it for your family’s Sunday dinner as well.
