Your Dinner Plan to Eat Clean for a Week (Page 2)

1. Rely on Quick-Cooking Whole Grains

Trying to eat clean means avoiding refined grains like white pasta, white bread and white rice in favor of whole grains. Unfortunately, a lot of whole grains take close to an hour to cook, which isn’t ideal when you’re in a rush. You have two options: a) cook a big batch of grains like barley, brown rice or wheat berries ahead to use throughout the week; or b) familiarize yourself with some quick-cooking varieties like quinoa, bulgur or farro. They’re all ready in less than 30 minutes.
