If you follow a dairy free diet and are looking for clean, healthy meals for throughout the week, this Dairy Free Meal Plan is for you!
Creating a week’s worth of delicious meals that are just as crave-worthy as they are healthy can be stressful, and isn’t something everyone has time for each week. Because of this, we created this Dairy-Free Meal Plan to make your life easier.
Clean Cuisine Basic Weekly Dinner Plan
Following a clean eating, dairy-free diet can easily turn bland, and into eating the same foods over and over again. With a busy schedule, and what seems like never enough time in the day, being creative with your meals can seem like an exhausting and daunting task.
However, having a diverse diet is not only important for health purposes, but also to keep food exciting, and enjoyable! Because of this, we like to follow a basic weekly guide to help us plan meals throughout the week. Here’s the breakdown:
- Meat Free Mondays
- Stir Fry Tuesdays
- One Dish Wonder Wednesdays
- Around the World on Thursdays
- Fish on Fridays
- Burger Saturdays
- Slow Cooker/ Chili Sundays
