These clean eating recipes come together in less than an hour and all use simple ingredients that you likely have on hand or can easily pick up at your next trip to the neighborhood grocery store. “Clean Eating” expert, Diane Welland, selected simple weeknight recipes from the Cooking Light collection that work for those who are trying to eat clean. Once you try them and see how easy it can be to fit into the clean eating recipe lifestyle, you might never go back.
Nutty Warm Brussels Sprouts Salad
Sometimes all it takes to “clean up” a recipe are a few simple changes such as substituting olive oil for butter or using fresh fruits or vegetables instead of canned. In this case, the regular “white” breadcrumbs can easily be replaced by whole wheat or whole grain breadcrumbs. For this easy salad, you can either separate the leaves of the sprouts, quartering the cores, or thinly slice the entire sprout until you've made a Brussels sprout slaw. To make it a meal, top with a lean protein, such as salmon.
