A month ago, I played a fun little game with those of you facebook friends!

The challenge?

Run to the grocery store and in under 10 minutes, get ingredients for a “clean eating” family dinner that can be prepared in 30 minutes or less!

You came through with flying colors! Some of you wanted to have these documented for future reference, so here are some of the dinners you came up with! (To see the full facebook post, click here!)

(If the directions or ingredients are vague, it’s because I took them directly from the facebook post. The awesome thing about “clean eating”, is that you have a lot of flexibility in regards to seasoning and cooking, so don’t feel tied down to any recipe!)


1.) Fresh chicken tenderloins, broccoli, and sweet potatoes and season as desired. (I use lemon and garlic)

2.) Baked salmon with lemon pepper, organic red potatoes mashed with almond milk, horseradish &nature seasoning, Baked asparagus with some EVOO , salt and pepper, and maybe some freshly baked ciabatta bread to dip in some balsamic vinegar, olive oil & pine nuts.

3.) Pre-sliced portabella mushrooms, frozen roasted red potatoes and spinach. Broil the mushrooms with a few seasonings while you cook the potatoes in a skillet. Add spinach when they’re done.

4.) Spaghetti squash (microwave for 5 mins, then roast it for 30), ground turkey, organic tomato sauce and gluten free spaghetti seasoning packet. A family favorite at our house, and super easy!

5.) Spinach,eggs, and onions

6.) Fajitas peppers, onions, chicken (optional), cooked (or canned) beans (use lentils if you have), avocado. Cheese (optional), salsa and ranch dressing for kids!

7.) Tilapia, broccoli slaw, lime, garlic, green onion , avocado, cukes and cherry tomatoes, cilantro, Cajun and blackened seasoning and olive oil. Blacken and cook the fish, mix the slaw and veggies with some oil and lime and Cajun. You can make them into fish tacos , but I usually eat it without the tortillas.

8.) Coconut curry chicken – chicken breast, coconut oil, onions, red bell pepper, yellow and orange peppers, asparagus, curry powder, garlic powder, ground ginger, sea salt

9.) And here is one that I posted on facebook and instagram!

Preheat oven to 375. Put foil on baking sheet and drizzle with EVOO. Take chicken breasts and season with salt and pepper and then drizzle with balsamic vinegar and EVOO (extra virgin olive oil) . Trim and chop Brussels sprouts. Place in bowl and season the same way as chicken . Place all on baking sheet and bake 10 min. Take out and flip/stir. Put back in another 10/15 min. I like my sprouts really crunchy so I turned up heat to 400 for last 5 minutes . I sprinkle a little romano cheese on top before eating. Serve with quinoa, rice , or sweet potato!
I don’t know about you, but I’m always looking for meal inspiration–especially healthy ones that are fast and easy! If you have any others that you’d like to share, feel free to comment below!
