At my house, cooking is all about dinner – that’s really the only meal I ever spend much time cooking for. That’s why I made a post with the best clean eating dinner recipes or I could call it the best clean eating main dish recipes. Either way, these recipes are the best out there. Just look at them – don’t they make your mouth water?
Clean eating basically means cooking from scratch and avoiding food additives and things that have been altered, such as regular white flour, processed foods and some dairy that has been processed.
Basically, it’s going back to eating like they did before the modernization of food came about the 1930s or so. So many health problems have come up in our society since that time. So there’s really nothing all that strange about the clean eating diet.
But cutting out the processed food can be difficult for some people who are used to fast food, frozen food, and canned food. You may be surprised how it’s really not that difficult to whip up a lot of these recipes and you also may be surprised at how much better you feel when you eat these clean eating recipes.
Clean eating is all about good clean wholesome food and none of these recipes will disappoint. Check them all out down to the very last one, they are all great. Thanks for stopping by and I hope you will come back often. This post could be your one-stop clean eating dinner recipe box.

Paleo Short Ribs with Garlic and Rosemary – My Natural Family

These short ribs are really easy to make because there are only seven ingredients. That’s one way I judge whether something is easy to make or not. I used to think that BBQ ribs and short ribs were basically the same things. I was wrong again. I like the texture of short ribs better and I think they have a richer flavor. They have more flavor because which comes from the fat, the bone and where the meat is on the cow. I brown the ribs first then cook them in a crockpot which makes them so tender they fall off the bone.
