The “Spring Clean EATing” Challenge: My Meal Plan

Print Friendly

Hey! Just popping in really quick here to give you what I’ll be eating for this week for The “Spring Clean EATing” challenge! I did not share this last year but decided that it may be helpful for some of you. I am a little leery about posting it just because I do not want you guys to do what I do! We each have our own goals for this challenge, so please hear me: DO NOT MIMIC MY MEAL PLAN–unless, of course, you really do think it will fare well for you.

(Not sure what I’m talking about? More info about the challenge, here)

Last year I focused solely on cleaning up and eating clean, but this year I decided to try something different. I have never done an official “detox” before, so I am going to do it on the front end of this week. So Monday, Tuesday, and Wednesday will look different than the rest of the week. The recipes for most of the meals this week are on my pinterest board so be sure to follow me there if you want to check them out.

So here’s my PLAN for the week. Remember: we do not live in a bubble! Life happens and I realize that even your most well thought out plans will not always happen. That’s ok! However, I’ve found that if I just start the week out HOPING to eat better with no prep, then guess what? I fail—and fail pretty quickly. So that’s why I’d like all of you to have some sort of menu/plan for the week. Doesn’t have to look like this exactly, but have an idea if you want to fare well by the end of the 7 days! Also, you will see little variation in the first 3 days–and that’s intentional! There is nothing wrong with keeping something the same–it will save on grocery costs, time spent preparing, and the mental energy of wondering what to eat! (You’ll note that it opens up a bit more towards the end of the week)

Note: I do not expect my family to detox with me, so you’ll see how their dinners are different during those days. It is pretty normal for us to “eat clean” so the kids are used to the dinners I have on the other nights. (Breakfast and lunch are all different in our family on normal days so that’s why I didn’t list them) Click on the image to see it!

One final note: If you are into hashtagging (because who isn’t? ha!) then be sure to use:

#eatclean14

That will be an easy way for us to search for recipes and see how everyone is doing this week! (Use it on Facebook, twitter, and instagram! Thanks, Christina for the suggestion!)

Come back tomorrow (Sunday) as we kick off our challenge and I address a few more questions. I’m doing something a little out of character for me during part of this week and I’ll be sharing that tomorrow! Now–I’m off to the grocery store! Got some shopping and prepping to do!

    I have been following this book called Discover the power of food by Janet Jacks. It has totally transformed my way of seeing food and using the right foods for healing my body.

  2. Looking forward to this challenge! Shopping is done, just need to put together the meal plan. That’s backwards I know, lol. :) You are such an inspiration, not only the great health and fitness tips you share, but your faith as well. God is using you to bless and encourage many, for His glory. Keep it up!!!

  3. Hi Clare,
    Can you give any recommendations on vitamins/supplements?
    Thanks :)

    • Hmm. You know, I don’t have any recommendations just because I’ve heard of so many that work well for folks. I would chat with your pharmacists or go to your local health food store!

    What is the fat flushing soup?

  5. Sonja Johnson says:

    Thank you for sharing your meal plan… it makes it alot easier to have a path to follow. I would be discouraged if I had to do extra searching, finding what is clean, or what helps detox.

  6. Suzanne says:

    Today is the first day, I feel great and I am not hungry at all.
    Thanks for sharing. Donna we are going to do this togther and with Christ help. Love ya
