30 Day Whole Food Challenge
Okay, here’s how the 30 Day Whole Food Challenge works: For the next 30 days, you’re going to revitalize your body and recharge your system by eating only plant-based foods. That means no animal products (including dairy). Todd Coburn will be available for any questions or guidance over the next 30 days.
The best way to set yourself up for success is to be prepared. You won’t be able to grab a take-out pizza or a drive-through burger while you’re on this challenge. Even vegetarian-friendly restaurants often don’t have 100 percent plant-based options, so you really need to stock your fridge with ready-to-eat foods.
Make sure you’re meal planning (and we will have a few suggestions for you later), making a weekly grocery list, and prepping your food in advance. We’d definitely suggest taking this opportunity to use our Online Food Journal if you haven’t already!
At the end of the 30 days, you’ll feel better than you have in years. You’ll think more clearly, and your body will feel cleaner and full of energy. By following this 30-day program, you’ll actually reset your mind and change the way you think about food. You may even notice that you’re more hydrated than usual and you’ve stopped craving junk food and sweets!
HOW TO SUCCEED ON THIS PLANT-BASED CHALLENGE
As we mentioned earlier, you’ll want to set yourself up for success for this 30-day plant-based challenge. That means stocking the fridge, freezer, and pantry with quick-and-easy meals. Make sure you have plenty of snacks on hand for those times when you lack energy.
Other than that, just start making healthy substitutions. Eventually, they will become life-long habits! When you find yourself craving something sweet, reach for a banana or a sweet potato. If you feel the urge to snack, grab some carrot or bell pepper sticks.
Start your day off with a glass of water and a green smoothie and fill up throughout the day on soups, stews, and salads. Snack on fruit and vegetables when you need to, even if you feel like you’re eating a lot in the first week. Stick with it, because it takes time to re-train your body and hard-wire it to crave healthy choices.
Before you know it, eating fresh fruits and vegetables will become a habit. You won’t feel the need to reach for unhealthy snacks, and you’ll feel fuller and more satisfied after eating a meal. In only 30 days, you’ll be well on your way to a happier, healthier self!
