Your Dinner Plan to Eat Clean for a Week (Page 3)

2. Choose Your Veggies Wisely

Eating clean is easy when you cram as many vegetables as possible into your meal. But if you’re trying to eat a lot of vegetables, washing, cutting and cooking them can take a lot of time. On weeknights, focus on a few vegetables that cook quickly and that take very little time to prep. Snap peas, snow peas, asparagus, broccoli florets and cauliflower require little to no prep and all cook quickly (be sure to cut broccoli and cauliflower into small florets to speed up cooking). And they all taste good if they’re tender-crisp—a texture that’s achieved with only a few minutes of cooking time.
