99: What I Would Do if I Were Brand New to Eating a Whole Food Plant Based Diet
This episode is a tad sweary.
In today’s episode, I’m sharing tips on making the switch to a whole food plant-based diet. 🌿 If you are ready to go at this full speed ahead, grab some tea and listen up.
1️⃣ Kitchen detox
Put on your favorite tunes (maybe some ’90s girl-with-a-guitar music) and clear out your fridge, freezer, and pantry of all the non-plant-based stuff. Meat, dairy, eggs, and highly-processed foods, be gone!
2️⃣ Start a free trial to Plant Fueled Life
I know I’m biased, but it’s for a good reason. Our Plant Fueled Life membership offers meal plans, recipes, video tutorials, coaching, and more! You can try Plant Fuel Life for FREE with no credit card required. Sign up, do the Quickie plan, and get your first grocery haul sorted.
3️⃣ Stock up
Now comes the fun part – restocking your kitchen with whole food plant based ingredients. This comes naturally by following our meal plans.
4️⃣ Batch cooking
Set aside some time for batch cooking, put on your favorite tunes (maybe some ’90s girl-with-a-guitar music), and cook the majority of the food you’ll need for the week. We call this batching and it’s a game-changer! I suggest starting with the plan Quickie.
5️⃣ Patience with your palate
Remember, your taste buds will evolve over time. Whole food plant based meals might not taste like what you’re used to, but give it a chance. The satisfaction and health benefits are worth it!
6️⃣ Take it easy
Change is hard, and that’s okay. This transition is a big deal.
