Meal Plan Monday: Clean eating banana muffin recipe

Hello friends.  I hope you all had a healthy and happy weekend!  It’s Monday over here and it definitely feels like it.  Greg’s car got towed away this morning with a completely dead battery, Nathan spilled his bright red smoothie all over my new area rug and then proceeded to use a entire roll of toilet paper to overflow the toilet!  All before 9:00am making us late for school and feeling very frazzled.  BUT…I am happy to say at least I have one part of my life planned and that is our meals for the week.  We are plugging right along and are on day 8 of our 24 Day Group Challenge.   What an awesome group of people….although it was a rough start to the day I can always count on everyone’s uplifting energy in the group to turn things around.  We have all been hitting that after holiday reset button….and I’m hoping that same button applies to restarting this day!  So here you have it….my clean eating meal plan for the week.

Monday- Turkey meatloaf muffins & streamed broccoli

Tuesday- Whole roasted crockpot chicken w/ brussells sprouts & sweet potato mash

Wednesday- Hummus crusted chicken over seasoned zucchini

Thursday- Coconut curry turkey chili w/ brown rice

Friday- Date night- True Food Kitchen (Love having an option for a clean eating night out)

Saturday- Shredded Salsa chicken salad w/ pico de gallo & guacamole

Sunday- Shredded chicken marinara over quinoa pasta


Greg has been doing the Challenge with me this time and is doing so great.  I’m pretty sure he’s lost 10 lbs (which includes holiday weight) just in these last 8 days.  We have both been feeling awesome but for some reason are struggling with our sweet tooth this go around.  I don’t even really have a sweet tooth normally, but I have a feeling I got used to all the treats of Christmas that my body is just looking wondering where they went.  There are so many great options out there for clean eaters when they want the occasional treat so I found THIS recipe, swapped out a few ingredients and here you have it: Clean-eating banana pecan muffins….they definitely hit the guilt-free spot!  ENJOY

    These look really good! I can’t wait to try this! I typically hate diets and always fight against them because they eliminate whole food groups which I don’t think is healthy. But this eating clean thing, I may be able to do this as a way of life because it offers so much. Just a different way of preparing it. Excited! Thanks for posting these.
