The following are very important to round out your meals.


Fresh vegetables are a no-brainer when it comes to clean eating. Vegetables can be enjoyed raw at dinnertime in a salad using olive oil and balsamic vinegar as a dressing.

Furthermore, vegetables can be steamed or grilled and spiced up with some garlic or other seasonings.

Finally fresh vegetables can be paired with almost anything, so dinnertime should always include a plate full of vegetables.


Grilling meat is a great way to bring out the flavours without needing to add much seasoning (or extra calories). In addition meats, such as chicken and fish, are just as delicious when baked.

Cheese a favourite, and can add savoury flavour to almost any dish. In addition, organic eggs are a very good source of high quality protein and vitamins.

Grains and Carbs

Whole grain pasta and rice can serve as a great starting point for dinner. There are literally thousands of pasta and rice dishes out there, and can all be adapted towards a clean eating lifestyle.
