Clean Eating Week 1 Meal Plan

Sunday, August 18, 2013

One of the hardest parts of clean eating is the planning ahead. Fortunately, I am extremely type A (to the point that I'll most likely enter therapy in the next few years) and love this part of clean eating. It's an excuse to plan even more aspects of life- AND MORE LISTS!! My favorite! Here is how we survived week 1 of clean eating:

Clean Breakfast Quiche
Filling Fruit Smoothie

Black Bean Zucchini Quinoa Burgers
Chicken Salad (we used extra chicken breast from Monday's supper and combined it with Arugala, spinach, tomatoes, cucumbers, feta, and balsamic vinegar)


  • Cottage Cheese
  • Almonds
  • Pistachios
  • Grapes
  • Strawberries
  • Applies
  • Dark chocolate (72% cacao or more)

Monday: Greek Chicken with Garbanzo Bean Salad
Tuesday: Garlicy Turkey Burgers with Bruschetta
Wednesday: NY Strip Steak and Broccoli/cauliflour mix (frozen)
Thursday: Like Crabcakes but With Tuna
Friday: Stir Fry!!

Shopping List:

  • Dozen eggs
  • 4 bell peppers
  • 1 bag frozen broccoli
  • 2 large onions
  • 1 lb lean ground turkey
  • Frozen fruit
  • Bananas
  • Big tub of Fat Free Greek Yogurt
  • Almond Milk (I get unsweetened)
  • 1 can black beans
  • 3 zucchinis
  • 1 box quinoa
  • Balsamic Vinegar
  • 1 bag frozen chicken breast
  • NY strip steak
  • 2 lemons
  • 1 bunch parsley
  • 1 can garbanzo beans
  • 2 cucumbers
  • 5 tomatoes
  • 1 bag spinach
  • 2 cans tuna
  • 1 garlic bunch/thing/bulb whatever it's called
  • Whole grain brown rice
  • Cottage cheese
  • Nuts
  • Snack fruits
  • Seasonings: basil, parsley
This list definitely looks intimidating but we hit Costco for a lot of this stuff, and all of our food is still fresh weeks later because of my food storage research


  1. This looks good, I love how you have it all mapped out for me. And I like silly people :)

  2. Hi, I want to try to your week 1 plan but don't see a link to the NY Strip Steak/Broccoli meal - is that somewhere else?

  3. My husband and I have been trying to follow this, but your grocery list does not add up to your recipes. We used the 1lb of ground turkey for the burgers and did not have 1/2lb for the quiche. We also did not buy arugula or festa cheese for the chicken salad.

  4. I'm a bit confused on the grocery list. I went through the recipes and can't seem to match up the recipes and the shopping list completely.
