Earlier this week, I wrote a post about a clean eating challenge that I took on. It was both challenging and rewarding. It made me realize that clean eating is possible, for the whole family, to a certain degree. When I looked through my recipe posts, I realized that we already eat a lot of clean and healthy meals and snacks so I thought I would share all of my favourites with you.
1. Chia Banana Breakfast – This make-ahead breakfast takes about 6 minutes to make the night before and it’s ready to eat in the morning. Just slice some bananas to top it with for a delicious, dessert-like breakfast.
2. Avocado Banana Smoothie – No time to sit down and eat? The avocado banana smoothie is creamy, filling and you can take it with you to drink on the road.
