I get asked for grocery lists a lot from people wanting to try out clean eating. They're not quite ready to jump in too deep with everything organic and one hundred percent clean. Again, I'm not an expert and my idea of "eating clean" may drastically differ from yours. But, if you want to try it out and see if this way of eating is for you I have a quick list to guide you through the store.
I think people are generally afraid of trying clean eating because they simply have no idea where to start. This list will simply get you going. You can take a few items from the produce section, pair it with a protein selection, and add a small serving of grains to make a simple, but completely healthy meal.
If you're like me and want something quick and easy, try it that way! The combinations are endless....
- Baked chicken seasoned with black pepper and lemon juice, served with asparagus and steamed cauliflower, with a side of couscous.
- Turkey breast topped with fresh cranberries (all baked together), steamed green beans, and whole wheat stuffing (I found some at Aldi this past week!).
- Tilapia with lemon juice, broccoli, and quinoa.
- Deer burgers (no bun), baked sweet potato, and cooked spinach.
See where I'm going with this? It doesn't have to be fancy or difficult. Once you get the hang of things, you can totally venture out on the recipes. But this can help you get started!
