Eating Clean Meal Plan: Summer Menu

Eating clean isn’t rocket science; it’s planning! Get all my secrets for healthy eating, and a two week eating clean meal plan designed for summer.

If you want to feed your family well but aren’t sure where to start, this is the post for you. I have a whole foods approach to eating that the whole family will love, no health food store needed.

This eating clean meal plan is something that I cycle through. We try to eat by my 80/20 rule (more on that at the bottom of the post), but when I feel like we are getting lazy or have had too many treats and cheat meals (read long weekends, holidays, vacations, and birthday parties), I’ll stick to a super clean menu for 2 weeks to get us back on track and feeling a little more in control. I also do this pre-holiday season to gear up for the bounteous eating.

I always have a huge batch of that granola on hand that we can eat with cold milk and frozen blueberries for days when we’re in a rush. Definitely plan on keeping a few “convenient” things around to fall back on, or you’ll feel like eating this way is way too hard.


  • Salad in a Jar. Have you started making salad in a jar yet?! This method is a super-convenient way to get veggies into your lunch. I highly recommend prepping a handful of these at the beginning of each week. Here’s a list of my 9 favorite homemade salad dressings to try.
  • Sandwiches. Egg, tuna, chicken salad, PB & honey, or lunch meat (nitrate-free) sandwiches are great. Try plain yogurt instead of mayo in tuna, egg, and chicken salad.
  • LEFTOVERS!! This is definitely our most common lunch. When you are cooking every night, you’ll find that you have lots of leftovers in the fridge!
  • Tex-Mex of all styles! Nachos, Taco Salad, Bean Burritos, Quesadillas (Homemade baked corn tortilla chips are just what you need!).
  • Notes: Nachos, you say? Yes! Costco has a huge bag of organic tortilla chips that are super cheap and are super tasty. I feel no guilt. Melt a little cheese on them, top with fresh veggies and salsa, and you have a perfect lunch. The tortilla chips are probably the biggest “cheat” you’ll find in this eating clean meal plan, though I do sometimes make my own baked corn tortilla chips, which are also good.
