Clean Eating Inspiration

Tuesday, September 30, 2014

I have run out of creativity with clean eating. I can't come up with any new ideas, and the thought of more turkey/quinoa/chicken/beans is just not appealing right now. Thankfully it's 2014 and the interwebs are full of inspiration and recipes to keep me going, here are a few of my favs:


Whole Foods New Body. Ashley is a busy mom and her recipes involve simple, clean ingredients that you can find at any grocery store. My favorite feature of her's is What I Ate Wednesdays where she posts everything she eats with either a description or a link to the simple recipes.

Fit Men Cook: Harrison actually introduced me to this guy because he posts clean recipes all over Instagram, he's buff, and he makes it seem  like clean eating is a cool thing that buff men do, not just a girly fad diet (which is why Harrison was so anti-clean eating at first). Again, simple ingredients and quick recipes.

The Iron You: This guy has a lot of creative and funky recipes. Not always the simplest ingredients but I get creative and substitute ingredients when I don't feel like running to Whole Foods.

Popular Paleo: This girl has tonssss of awesome recipes and they're all nicely categorized on her site. Most paleo recipes are clean so I just cook whatever she says is good haha!

Instagram Accounts: Instagram is also a great way to get recipes. These people post pix with their recipes and they're usually pretty simple recipes (simple enough to fit into an Instagram caption at least).

I also search the hastags #CleanEating, #CleanRecipes, #CleanEats, and #FitFam regularly for some inspiration.

So tell me: What are your favorite recipe resources? Where do you find your meals?


  1. When I was doing my detox, I used pinterest for the majority of my recipes. The 21 day sugr detox has an official pinterest page. I had quite a few very good meals!

  2. I love your honesty lol! I truly lost all clean eating creative juices after one meal... whomp whomp. LOL!

  3. I just haven't had the time. I've been doing the grilled chicken with salad thing for WEEKS now. Just because I don't have the time.
    And next week - all bets are off - not even going to lie - ALL THE FOODS IN MY BELLY.

    But after that, I am going to commit to the clean(est) eating possible... and these sites will help!

  4. oh fabulous. thank you, i really needed this today - i have been struggling with clean eating and also with cooking, so i just need to kick my butt into gear and get back into it. thanks so much for sharing these!

  5. I really like Fit Men Cook and SammiBFit. Shonda1020 on Instagram is really good too.

  6. I haven't heard of any of these!!! Clean eating is so hard for me - not during the day but more so at night when I snack lol!

  7. I haven't heard of any of these, so thank you for sharing! I really need to get back to a more disciplined eating plan...but I dont wanna. Haha! But I NEED to. Stupid food. Stop being delicious!

  8. I also search using hashtags - quick and easy!

  9. Thank you so much for these! I am about to start a healthy eating 21 day cleanse if you will so I will definitely be needing these recipes!
