Happy New Year, meal planners! I hope your wonderful night topped off a wonderful year, and you’re all excited and shiny and clean and new and motivated for the year ahead. I know I am.
Meal plans this week are gon’ be a little different. I know it’s the time for resolutions that everyone loves to say will be broken by January 5. I’m willing to bet that a lot of those are to “eat healthier”, however vague that may sound, so this time I’m passing on to you the PCRM 21-Day Vegan Kickstart meal plan. Two years ago I pledged to go vegan for a week to ring in the new year… and I did and I loved it, and it was fun. But it’s also very, very difficult. I know it doesn’t have to be, but if you are looking for convenience (as a lot of you are), it is hard. PCRM pushes it a little further with a three-week stint, and I follow their meal plans every year, but not always to the letter.
I’m encouraging you to do the same. Pick what you like from here and perhaps add a little vegan sparkle to your life. It certainly is healthy, and I’m all about little steps – not everyone can go vegan overnight and I’m not suggesting you do… I’m suggesting you make some changes and additions and perhaps substitutions and find some new favourites in your repertoire. And this really is the case when one can say “it can’t hurt”! It really can’t!
