5 Clean Eating Recipes For Weeknights

I’m sharing 5 clean eating recipes for weeknights that are on repeat in our house and the whole family loves!

While we love our special treats and gourmet eats in the Harney household, on the day to day, we try to focus eating whole foods, fresh produce, and quality protein. But if I don’t do a little planning (i.e. easy meal planning for busy moms), putting healthy recipes on the table night after night can be a challenge with our busy schedules.

It can be temping to order takeout inside of preparing a homemade meal when we’ve been working, at school, and dance practice (for multiple hours!), but I know all of us feel better when we have a nourishing homemade meal at the end of the day.

Today I’m  sharing a handful of easy to prepare yet delicious clean eating recipes that you can quickly prepare for busy weeknights – enjoy!

5 Clean Eating Recipes For Weeknights

1. Easy Enchiladas with Rotisserie Chicken

These easy enchiladas with rotisserie chicken are great for meal prep and always a family favorite! I am always shocked by how delicious they are considering they take so little time to make with so few ingredients. Like seriously, they’re so good, I forget they’re really good for me. If you’re new to meal prep or need a hand with it, you have to check out my FREE meal prep blueprint!

2. Sushi Roll in a Bowl

This is one of our go-to dinners: baked salmon, rice (season with rice vinegar and sesame seeds), chopped cucumber, avocado, and seaweed snacks. Top with soy sauce and/or sriracha and feast! Tip: make the rice in the Instant Pot for ease.

3. Dairy-Free & Gluten-Free Tuna Casserole

This healthy tuna casserole is gluten-free, dairy-free, and high in protein! It’s a perfect family and kid-friendly dinner for a busy weeknight. This casserole is made from pantry staples like olive oil, dijon mustard, minced garlic, and tuna (to name a few), and is a great make-ahead dinner option. Better yet, in just over 20 minutes, it’s all done!

4. Slow Cooker Greek Chicken Soup

The soup is an easy recipe you can throw together in the slow cooker. Liv loves soup (this one is her all-time favorite), and it’s an easy way for the family to get a ton of veggies.

5. Sriracha Chicken and Cauliflower Stir Fry

This sriracha chicken and cauliflower stir fry is the perfect healthy dinner or lunch option. It’s high in protein, gluten-free, dairy-free, and family-friendly. Pack up the extras as lunch, or enjoy as part of your weekly meal prep.

6. Gluten-Free Cashew Chicken

I LOVE Chinese takeout, but I really don’t like how it leaves me feeling afterwards. It makes me feel pretty bloated and bleh. Fried food really doesn’t love me a much as I love it, so I try to avoid it as much as I can. BUT, this cashew chicken fills me with the warm vibes that Chinese takeout brings, without the yucky feeling afterward! This is a definite go-to when craving a flavorsome meal in my house!

7. Jackfruit Carnitas Burrito Bowl

I did originally make this as a lunch idea, but I’d be LYING if I said I didn’t love it when craving a light dinner. It’s one of my fav lunches or dinners after a hot day. It’s healthy, vegan-friendly, and above all, DELICIOUS! If you want to add a little extra, you can even add some olives, cilantro, or even corn. Don’t be put off if you’ve never tried jackfruit, you can flavour it however you like!

8. Not-Fried Chicken

I love this crispy, savory, and insanely tasty not-friend chicken made in a sheet pan. It’s healthy, easy-to-make, and tastes exactly like the real deal. I live for delicious food that won’t clog my arteries or make me feel yuck. Pair this not-friend chicken with a fresh, nutritious salad, and you have a healthy weeknight meal.

9. Chicken with Mediterranean Cauliflower Rice

Talk about delicious! This incredibly flavorful, protein-packed, low-carb dinner is definitely a favorite of mine. Even the kids low this super-healthy meal with allll of the goodness in it. You can even add in some roasted sweet potatoes to bulk it up if you have a hungry husband at home.

10. Chicken Tacos with Homemade Tortillas

I’ll be the first to say I’m a bit of a #tortillasnob. That is why I almost always resort to making my own, just like in this recipe. This healthy meal is so easy and definitely worth the great flavor. Simply make your tortillas, pack them with your favorite fillings (we did cilantro, mashed black beans, shredded chicken, spinach, salsa, sour cream, and cheese). Oops, now I’m craving them again!
