Day 6: Clean-Eating Recipes

This Is How You Eat Clean and Eat Steak

Steak can be part of a clean diet. Add parsnip fries and you have yourself one tasty meal — we can't wait for dinner either.

Breakfast: Mushroom-Pepper Omelet

Notes

  • Use sautéed mushrooms left over from Day 4 dinner.
  • Ingredients

    1. 1 tablespoon olive oil
    2. 1/3 cup chopped red pepper
    3. 1/2 cup sautéed mushrooms (left over from Day 4 dinner)
    4. 1/3 cup garbanzo beans
    5. 1/8 teaspoon salt
    6. 2 eggs

    Directions

    1. Heat 1 teaspoon olive oil in a skillet over medium heat and add red pepper. Sauté for about 5 minutes, or until soft. Add the mushrooms, garbanzo beans, and salt and heat until warmed through, about 2 minutes. Remove from pan.
    2. Whisk together 2 eggs and about 1 tablespoon of water.
    3. Add another 2 teaspoons oil to the pan and pour in egg mixture, swirling the eggs to coat the bottom of the pan and cooking until firm.
    4. Flip egg round over (or leave as is if you like a slightly runnier omelet) to cook other side.
    5. Add the veggie-bean mixture to the egg round and fold in half to create an omelet.

    Dinner: Steak + Parsnip Fries

    Notes

  • Save 1/2 of steak for tomorrow's lunch
  • Ingredients

    1. 2 parsnips, sliced lengthwise, into 1/4-inch strips
    2. 1/2 zucchini, sliced into 1/4-inch disks
    3. 1 tablespoon olive oil, divided
    4. 1/8 teaspoon salt
    5. 8-ounce beef tenderloin

    Directions

    1. Preheat oven to 425°F. Slice 2 parsnips, lengthwise, into 1/4-inch strips. Slice half a zucchini into 1/4-inch disks. Toss parsnips and zucchini with 2 teaspoons olive oil and salt and arrange in a single layer on an aluminum-foil- or parchment-paper-lined baking sheet.
    2. Turn oven temp down to 400°F and bake for 20 minutes, turning once.
    3. Remove veggies and heat the broiler on high.
    4. Heat an oven-safe skillet with 1 teaspoon olive oil over high heat. Lightly salt and pepper both sides of the beef tenderloin and add to the skillet to cook until bottom of steak is browned, about 3 minutes. Without flipping, place the entire skillet under the broiler to cook until medium, about 3 minutes under the broiler.
    5. Serve half (4 ounces) of the steak with the parsnip fries and zucchini disks and save the other half of the steak for Day 7.
