Book Review: 28-Day Plant-Powered Healthy Reboot
There are aspects in all of our lives that we want to change, in one way or another. While some things may seem out of our control, there are many things that we can change with the right tools, motivation and help. Once such aspect is changing the way we eat (remember that New Year’s resolution?!). For us at Wellness Patterns, this means less sugar and more wholesome foods without feeling restricted a.k.a miserable all day long.
To help us out, we recently got tons of awesome advice from the new book, 28-Day Plant-Powered Health Reboot. Developed by registered dietitians, celebrated bloggers behind Food Heaven Made Easy and bi-coastal best friends (love that!) Jessica Jones and Wendy Lopez created a non-intimidating guide to a calorie-controlled, budget-friendly, and vegetarian approach to hitting the reset button and revving-up your body’s natural detoxification process. Over the course of their 28-day plan, Jones and Lopez attest that their program can help detoxify the body as you learn how to fuel your body with delicious and wholesome plant-based meals.
This includes tons of helpful sample meal plans, grocery lists, and mouth-watering recipes–all designed to empower the reader to get organized and find the best plan for your taste preferences and lifestyle. A fantastic primer if you want to better understood food, the book kicks off with an informative guide to calories, nutrients, and the plant-based lifestyle. And, and of course, our favorite part – the book is filled with 100 amazing recipes that are around 300 and 500 calories per meal and designed to be “simple, delicious, nutritious, and fun.” This include Savory Quinoa Egg Muffins, Sweet Potato Burrito Bowl with Green Rice, Quick and Easy Huevos Rancheros Tostadas, Chewy Cranberry Energy Balls and much more!
A comprehensive guide to resetting your body, eating right and feeling amazing, this one must-have book to check out as you kick-off your 2017 goals.
