7 Recipes That Prove Clean Eating Is Easy (And Delicious)

It doesn't matter the season, there are always things out there that can trip up your healthy eating plans. As soon as you get through summer and its barbecues and patio parties, you're hit with holiday season and winter hibernation habits. Spring is spent trying to prepare for summer and before you know it, you're back to sipping sugary cocktails at the beach. It can feel like a never ending grind -- one that can weaken you willpower and if you aren't careful, expand your waistline. But, you don't have to give up or jump around from one restrictive diet to another, you can eat real, quality, whole foods and lose weight without feeling deprived or bored. To eat clean, you don't have to consume a steady diet of rice cakes and water. You can eat with color and flavor, giving your body the nutrients and minerals it needs to function properly! So, take a pass on salt and sugar laden, processed foods and open yourself up to a world where you can eat well AND be healthy and happy! Inspired by the BodyRock Meal Plan, the following recipes contain foods that are full of protein, fiber, healthy fats, and taste!
