Get started with our free mini course! The course contains sample recipes, tips and all of the practical info you need to get started.
Making the transition to clean eating doesn’t need to be complicated, sometimes it’s as simple as cleaning up the recipes you already love.
For example, while baking, you could opt for sprouted amaranth flour as opposed to processed flour or play around with honey, applesauce or date purees in place of sugar, you could also swap out store-bought ketchup in favor of a homemade tomato sauce.
Clean eating is truly a lifestyle makeover, a lifestyle that brings with it so many health benefits.
What’s more, you don’t need to be some 5-star gourmet chef to be able to put together an enjoyable clean eating meal, the internet is rife with so many clean eating recipes that are tasty, packed full of flavor and easy to make.
When making the switch to clean eating, you can start out with fruits and vegetables, most of which don’t require much actual cooking, all you have to do is chop, toss and you have a ready to eat meal.
One-pot recipes are also great if you a beginner in the kitchen or at clean eating; they reduce the amount of cleanup you have to do and the recipes are usually not complicated.
Below is a roundup of some of the easiest clean eating recipes you will ever find, try them out and let me know what you think about them. Enjoy!
