Feeding our family has always been a challenge, even back when my husband and I were dating and newly married.  We both grew up eating traditional American family meals with meat and a variety of potatoes, veggies and other side dishes. 

Yet, as young adults, we both adopted a vegetarian lifestyle. Partly because we wanted to be healthier, partly because we didn’t enjoy eating meat, and partly because we were huge animal lovers and activists.   

Eating a vegetarian diet brought on a set of challenges, not only for us but for our friends and family.  Eating dinner at other people’s homes or dining out wasn’t always that easy, but we were committed to our decision and made it work for 15 years. 

Little did I know then, that it was preparing us for the feeding challenges that lay ahead for us with our three daughters.  

Each of them faced a different challenge from a young age when it came to feeding. Some of our challenges included food allergies, extreme pickiness due to sensory processing disorder and autism, feeding tubes, slow growth, GI distress and more.  

So eating healthy has always brought challenges to our family but we never gave up and always found new ways, ideas, and even therapies to help our family stay on the right path towards healthy eating.  

Now that we have made a lot of progress in those areas and are on a clean eating journey, we are met with other challenges – mainly a lack of time in the evenings to cook healthy, clean meals. 

Hectic schedules leave little time for meal planning and preparation. That’s when the temptation to head to the nearest fast food drive-thru kicks in. We need something that’s easy and quick.  

I’m sure you can relate to some of these same struggles.

If you are striving to meet your clean eating goals and get more nutritious meals on the table, check out these 5 clean eating blogs for tons of inspiration and healthy, achievable meals. 

Even busy moms can provide clean, healthy meals with just a little help from these experts. 

All of these websites and blogs feature recipes, tips, and ideas for healthy meals for your family.  Many of them provide also provide ideas for getting meals planned, prepped, and prepared quickly. Several have fast meal prep solutions so that you can get dinner on the table even on hectic nights.


clean eating blog - simple green smoothies

Simple Green Smoothies will always have a special place in my heart because this was the blog that propelled me into my clean eating journey.  It all started with the FREE 7-Day Green Smoothie Challenge which I completed in March 2019. The challenge was easy to accomplish and got me in the habit of drinking a green smoothie every morning (still going!). 

The following month, I joined the Simple Green Smoothies plant-based meal planning subscription, called Rawk the Year, and loved it! The dinners and snacks were amazing, delicious and so healthy. 

Simple Green Smoothies is clean eating at its best! However, the recipes do take a little more prep and cooking time but these plant-based meals are probably one of the healthiest available. Head over to the blog for free recipes, check out the cookbooks or try the 7-Day Green Smoothie Challenge.
