Clean Eating Round-Up

Homegrown Rainbow Chard :: Set the Table

It’s entirely possible that I am STILL full from the holiday weekend. Oops. BIG diet-oops.

To help my body and mind recover, I’m planning a week of healthy meals to help me feel energized and these are a few of my favorites that will be making an appearance at our table.

Did you overdo it for Thanksgivukkah? Or were you well-behaved? Either way, I think you’ll enjoy these clean eating recipes!

One of my all-time favorite healthy recipes is this Kale & Pineapple Smoothie. Fortunately, Riley loves them too so I can get a crazy amount of kale into my little toddler with no problem.

For lunch and dinner, I like to work with dark leafy greens and eggs. With flavorful garlic and chili flakes, this Baked Eggs, Rainbow Chard & Yogurt dish is satisfying, fast to assemble, and perfectly healthy (and yes, there is butter, which maybe doesn’t make this as “clean” as some might prefer, but you can always omit it).

Now this recipe is one that all of you, cooks or not, can make on a busy weeknight. It’s a one-pan, super healthy meal that is comforting without the typical comfort-food guilt. Jacqueline’s Pasta Bake is the perfect way to serve a healthy, crowd-pleasing meal to your family.

This Asparagus with Black Sesame is a beautiful way to enjoy your vegetables. Flavorful, nutritious, and gorgeous.

And finally, here is a perfectly amazing Roasted Broccoli Salad (I’m so thankful to the person who discovered roasted broccoli) that is perfect for a light lunch or a healthy side dish.

So now you’re armed with some delicious, healthy recipes that will help get you through the week! Of course, I can’t help you if you are still working through Thanksgiving leftovers. You’re on your own with that one.

Have a wonderful week everyone!
