21-day Plant Based Diet Challenge

Welcome to the 21-day plant-based eating challenge.  The next few weeks give us the opportunity to focus on our health through nutrition during the holidays, the toughest season to manage.  This is the time to try new things so have fun with it and be creative.   Being that some of you may be new to new to a vegetarian or vegan way of eating, the challenge is going to be broken up into three parts. 

Week 1 - To ease into the journey we'll allow fish, eggs, butter, cheese, and milks for the first week

Week  2 - We're eliminating fish, milk, cheese, and butter.  Eggs allowed. 

Week 3 - We're finishing the final 7 days with a strict Plant Based Diet

There are only 2 rules for participation

  1. You must calculate your BMR so we have a caloric intake number to manage.

  2. You must keep a journal 

This will be a great way to end 2019 and start 2020 ahead of the game!
