If you’ve been following the Clean & Lean Challenge so far – whether as a spectator or an at-home participant, you might be at a point where you need some recipe inspiration! If you are anything like most people, this challenge has probably inspired you eat healthier but might not know where to start. A perfect place to do so is Dr. Ian’s Clean & Lean Recipe book!

If you want to eat gourmet meals that won’t take hours or a ton of guesswork or prep, this is the perfect companion for you.
A sample day could look like…
