The summertime usually means lots of beer, fried foods, cheesy dips, and hot wings doused in ranch dressing. Since we love celebrating with friends and delicious food, we love coming up with wholesome versions of the classics. We've created a healthier chicken wings recipe by baking the wings instead of deep-frying and using unprocessed fats and seasonings to add flavor. If you are currently cleansing, you can feel free to use our Buffalo Cauliflower recipe instead!
You'll love the taste of this Thai fish recipe. We've served it over brown rice to give you a balanced and meal, as the brown rice will soak up the rich, coconut sauce and you'll experience a burst of flavor with each bite. Poaching the fish in the sauce ensures it will stay moist and gives the fish a chance to marinate in all of the flavors. Leaving out the red peppers will give you a delicious cleanse-friendly meal.
This healthy burrito bowl recipe is a cleaner version of the typical bowl you would get at Chipotle. Although Chipotle uses fresher ingredients than other fast food chains, it’s not necessarily the healthiest option. One reason is that their portions are absolutely massive! We all love a mound of guacamole on top of our bowls, but large portions can equal an unnecessary amount of calories. With one simple swap, this recipe makes a great lunch on the Cleanse.
Doesn’t it seem like everyone is sick right now? The post-holiday work grind, combined with cold weather, has a way of seriously wearing down the immune system. While washing your hands, popping echinacea, and getting plenty of sleep are great lines of defense against germs, our preferred method of keeping the cold and flu at bay is sipping a hot bowl of soup packed with immunity-boosting mushrooms and superfoods.
We all know it’s important to eat healthy and to include a variety of foods in our diets. But just as critical as what we eat is consuming the right amounts. One way to make sure we’re getting enough of the major nutrients we need is by building a macro bowl. This macro bowl combines Middle Eastern flavors with healthy plant-based protein, and is perfect for a clean diet.
There's something seemingly intimidating about cooking dry beans. The act of rinsing, soaking, and cooking seems daunting, but in actuality, this process requires less than one minute of hands-on prep! The result of using dry beans is a more nutrient-dense dish that has a flavor that canned beans can never stand up to. These cleanse-approved instant pot black beans use pressure cooking, so they're done in a snap and will taste like they've been simmering all day.
This vegan shepherd's pie recipe is a wintertime favorite. It's comforting and satisfying. Instead of using mashed potatoes, we use a version of our vegan cauliflower mash. The sautéed garlic and thyme adds a nice rich flavor to the cauliflower. This is a great meal for preparing lunches ahead of time on the 21-Day Clean Program.
We love meal prep ideas here at Clean because one of the hurdles to healthy eating we hear most often is that being busy or under-prepared can derail healthy choices, especially meals on the 21-Day Clean Program. With proper meal prep ideas, you'll always have easy meals on hand, so no matter how short on time you are, wholesome food is ready to go. We've put together our best tips for food prep, and even laid out a sample week of food prep to show you exactly how it looks.
Summer is officially here, which means our gardens are overflowing with fresh vegetables and herbs waiting to be eaten. If you find yourself up to your eyeballs in produce this season, grilled vegetable kebabs are a great way to use up your harvest. Simply slice up a combination of your favorite cleanse-approved vegetables and thread them onto bamboo or metal skewers. A cashew-based tzatziki sauce offers a cool contrast to the charred veggies, making for an irresistible combination.
