I think the most common question I am asked is "HOW DO I MEAL PLAN"!?!? "I HAVE NO IDEA WHAT TO PAIR WITH WHAT!?" I think what ends up happening is something like this ...
You decide that you are going to start eating healthy/clean and living a healthier life. You google .. You come up with A TON of different solutions. You find some awesome dinner ideas. You start to make a list and then just get overwhelmed and give up. I can relate because guess what!?!? I was there only a year ago.
I had no idea what I was suppose to eat. I went to the gym, hired a trainer, joined a program, and was told what to eat.
I got no where .... FAST! I didn't loose weight. I begin to log everything in and became obsessed with it that I was stressed out and was sad. I don't want you to feel that way. If I do nothing else as a coach, I at least want to help people learn that eating clean is not complicated. I am so thankful that I was able to learn these simple things because it changed my life.
If you aren't sure what clean eating is you can look at my clean eating 101 blog post.
I want to make things simpler for you each Monday i'm going to post 5 dinner meals that you can use for that week. I'll call it Clean Eating Mondays!! So be sure to check back every Monday. I know it's Tuesday but I have been sick :( But i still wanted to get this too you!! So here is your week of clean dinners. All delicious and quick to make.
Monday- Chicken Fajitas
Tuesday - Turkey Meat Loaf place the sweet potato in the oven at 450 degrees for 45 mins coat the outside with olive oil. Comes out PERFECT! Cut open when done dizzle a little EVOO and some sea salt and pepper. It's perfect. I also like to add a side of steamed green beans.
