Clean (Eating) Sweep


August 15, 2012 by Danielle

Last week in the checkout line at the supermarket, I made an impulse purchase that ended up being a good buy (for once)-

I had heard a lot about the magazine from blogger friends and on blogs that I read so I decided it was worth a shot.


First off, I tried their breakfast in a jar recipe for huevos rancheros…except I left out the jar. For some reason I have an aversion to eating and drinking from mason jars..creeps me out. I also didn’t take a picture, so you’ll have to trust me on the deliciousness of this recipe.

Then, I tried what is the piece de resistance of the magazine thus far-the Big Stack Burger.

Eating this bad boy definitely was not clean, but the recipe is!

Even my boyfriend loved it, which says a lot.

I thought he loved it so much that he got ketchup on his forehead..but it was just from head butting a bouquet on our table.

Clean Eating doesn’t allow recipe reposting (they let me know!), so check out the August/September issue for the full details. Picking up the magazine is totally worth it for just this recipe and it’s chock full of other great recipe ideas.

After loving both of the recipes that I tried, I decided to try out the two week long clean eating meal plan that is included in this month’s magazine.

This magazine has been through the ringer. It probably has a week’s worth of ingredients in it

Two weeks worth of easy, clean recipes for one plus a shopping list ? I’m in.

Since the ingredients and meals are laid out in a grid, everything has been smooth sailing so far. I’d say that the hardest part is actually eating all of the food throughout the day. It’s a lot of food, but it’s clean!

Here’s a picture of last night’s dinner-I’ll try to be better about photo-documenting so I can keep everyone up to speed!

  1. I just bought that magazine last week! Although, it has just been sitting on my coffee table…Everything looks yummy…I definitely need to try some recipes! Do you think the mag is worth a subscription?

      I was debating the same thing last night! I’m completely split down the middle on getting it or not. On one hand I love reading physical magazines (it’s like a present in the mail) and their recipes have been great so far. On the other hand, their website also has quite a few plans and recipes -for free 🙂 I think I’m going to keep working my way through this issue and then reassess. Odds are I’ll probably have a new magazine subscription by the end of September 😉

    I need to make that burget this week. And wow on them letting you know not to post the recipe. Interesting…

    I have purchased 3 of their magazines and have been very happy with them and their recipes. So much that I purchased a digital subscription which is cheaper than the paper one. If you are into digital magazines, you might want to check it out that way.

  5. […] While experimenting with Clean Eating Magazine’s recipes, I was inspired by their stir fry recipe and created my new favorite go-to  meal. Although this 60 Second Stir Fry might take more than sixty seconds to make, it’s great because it’s quick and allows me to take any veggies I have in the freezer or fridge and throw them together for a quick and healthy meal. Oh, it also has peanut butter in it, (sounds weird, I know) which always makes me a happy camper. Don’t knock it till you try it! Stirfry Success! […]

  6. […] don’t do #WIAW, but I took pictures of everything I ate yesterday to help reinvigorate my  promise to eat clean (more on that later), so I figured why not post my […]
