  1. I was wondering if you could substitute regular plain yogurt for the Greek yogurt? I have tried and tried and just cannot get used to the taste of Greek yogurt.

    1. The Gracious Pantry says:

      LeEdna – Sure! As long as it’s plain yogurt, it should be clean. Enjoy! ๐Ÿ™‚

  2. Patty Hawk says:

    Tried the banana and tortilla, the Muesli, and the cottage cheese and tomato and loved them all. The recipes are delicious and quick and I love your photography!!! Great ideas!

    1. The Gracious Pantry says:

  3. Gail pelton says:

    Banana/peanut butter roll-ups are reminicent of my Gram’s PB & banana sandwiches that she made me for lunch. Can’t wait to try them.

    1. The Gracious Pantry says:

      Gail – So happy you enjoyed them! Megan has some wonderful ideas! So happy to have her on board. ๐Ÿ™‚

  4. You always have such great ideas. It’s easy to get stuck in a rut and have the same food over and over. Thanks for the variety. I’m looking forward to trying some of these.

    1. The Gracious Pantry says:

      Rachel – I hope you enjoy them! ๐Ÿ™‚

  5. Diane Dreyling says:

    1. The Gracious Pantry says:

      Diane – Fantastic! So happy it helped! ๐Ÿ˜€

    1. The Gracious Pantry says:

      Jennifer – Fantastic! ๐Ÿ˜€

  7. Want to try the banana rollup – can someone recommend a healthy whole grain tortilla?

    1. The Gracious Pantry says:

      Maria – Trader Joe’s and Whole Foods carries them. The Alvarado Street Bakery company puts some out as does the company that make Ezekiel bread.

    1. The Gracious Pantry says:

      Julia – My pleasure! Thanks for stopping by! ๐Ÿ™‚

  9. How long do you microwave the sweet potato?

    1. The Gracious Pantry says:

      Nikki – That depends on the size of the potato. Prick holes in it and start with 3-4 minutes. Then add more at 30 second to 1 minute intervals depending on the level of “doneness”.

  10. Fyi- tortillas, english muffins, and breads are not clean eating… They are over processed and likely the cause for constapation.

    1. The Gracious Pantry says:

      April – Actually, that’s not true. Particularly if they are homemade. There are lots of clean bread products out there, although they are not always easy to find.

  11. Rebecca Bryant says:

    Is yogurt considered clean or just plain yogurt?

    1. The Gracious Pantry says:

      Rebecca – Just plain yogurt is clean. I have, on rare occasion, found yogurts at Whole Foods that were only fruit juice sweetened. But I haven’t seen them in a very long time.

  12. These all seem pretty brilliant, but the title is “on the go”, and I think many of them (especially the sweet potato… hmm) are not “on the go” options at all. Just a thought you might want to consider!

    1. The Gracious Pantry says:

      Lindsey – I take them on-the-go all the time! ๐Ÿ™‚ I just put them in a travel container and I eat it while I sit in traffic.

  13. Barb Zacchigna says:

    Wonderful ideas, with few ingredients and eat on the go opportunity with most of them. Trying to get hubby to eat cleaner, and popping a quick breakfast on top of his lunch to eat on the go, is a great start.
