30 Squeaky Clean Recipes for your 30 Day Clean Eating Challenge
I know a lot of you are taking the Whole30® challenge this January, so I thought I would help you get inspired in the kitchen by sharing 30 of my favorite Squeaky Clean recipes with you.
I know 30 may seem like a lot, but I thought 30 recipes for a 30 day challenge sounded like a great plan. Besides, believe it or not, I had a hard time narrowing it down to “just” 30… I could’ve easily added twice as much!
That being said, since I’ll be sharing a lot of content today, I suggest we cut to the chase and get right on to it. But before I go, I just want to take a moment to congratulate you on your efforts thus far. I hope that your challenge is going super well and wish you continued success for the remainder of the month.
Like I always say: It’s only food, and it’s only 30 days. You totally got this!
Oh, and for those of you who aren’t currently taking the challenge, you can still check out the recipes, you know. This post is NOT going to auto-destruct just as soon as you start scrolling down!

Thank you so much for this post. I am laying the groundwork for Whole 30 by reading the book first and getting my mind ready and so happy to see I don’t have to eat broiled chicken and steamed broccoli (yuck, boring) for 30 days! I love your recipes and writing style. Tonight I’m making your Bigger Better Butter Chicken. We love it! Thanks again!
Above described all recipes are very delicious and healthy too. I would like to say one thing that is salad plays a vital role in our routine meal. Broccoli chicken is one of my favorite dish and is healthy too because broccoli is best to maintain vitamins and nutrition.
This 30-day clean eating challenge is so great for me. I will definitely give this a try. Wish me luck and thank you for sharing this.
