STANDARD PROGRAM MEAL PLANS & RECIPES
DONE-FOR-YOU MEAL SERVICES
While we encourage you to learn how to cook and shop for healthy meals during your program, many people find it convenient to have a few ready-to-go meals that correspond with their program dietary transitions. We have found that these pre-made meal companies offer weekly meal options and individual entrees that typically correspond with most, if not all, of your program dietary transitions and utilize organic produce and properly-fed animal proteins. It is still important for you to read ingredient lists and confirm that any meals you choose work with your dietary transitions. Long-term, these done-for-you meal providers can help you keep your dietary changes intact while providing easy options for meals that typically cost less than what most people spend on lunch each day at work.
Thrive Market is one of the best places to find healthy, non-perishable grocery items and household goods for your healthy lifestyle. Even better, they can be bought at a discount! Many of the things you may struggle to find in your favorite local grocery store can be found easily on Thrive Market. While there is a membership to join, the savings are incredible!

Beneficial Bacteria in Your Diet
When “probiotic” foods are discussed, most people think of yogurt. However, yogurt is typically filled with sugar, artificial sweeteners, and usually contains unhealthy dairy sources. Fermented foods are a great way to introduce healthy bacteria to the gut through the diet and they taste great, too. If you aren’t familiar with fermented foods, these resources will give you the tools needed to make your own fermented veggies at home and begin enjoying the benefits that come from natural probiotics.
Pulling the Nutrition out of Your Fruits & Veggies
It’s no secret that veggies and certain fruits are essential to your overall health. Juicing extracts the nutrients from your produce so you can consume more of these valuable vitamins and minerals in a short amount of time. In addition, juices are cleansing to the body and aid in our overall health. This video helps you understand where to start with juicing and a simple recipe to begin making your own juice at home.
