As someone whose job it is to help people eat better, move better, and feel better, I’ve spent a lot of time thinking about and researching the best way to change habits.
In fact, I came up with this meal plan — one based on the 7 most important foods to eat, every single day — as the basis for talks that I give at plant-based health events, precisely because what I've observed at these events, time and again, is that lots of highly motivated people walk away with a ton of information and inspiration… but no plan for actually starting.
After seeing how much the “7 Daily Foods” framework (and crucially, the three meals that make it easy) helped people to understand how to eat the best diet they could, I realized I could make it even easier to execute this at home.
So I got together with my friend, author, and plant-based nutritionist Sid Garza-Hillman, and asked him to help me craft a 7-day plan to help you feel what it’s like to build your diet around the best foods possible … with meals that are simple to make, and with all the planning already done for you.
When we were finished, we were left with a simple, easy-to-follow 7-day “Kickstart” plan, built around the 7 healthiest foods you can eat every day.
