Health, Happiness, and Radiance Meal Plan

The foods that we eat provide us with the energy that we need to make it through our busy lives. If we are not nourishing our bodies with nutritious, whole, plant-based foods then we are not experiencing the benefits and joys of a well-fueled body!

Having a diet that is strictly plant based will provide you with all of the vitamins, nutrients, protein and minerals that you need to thrive. Eliminating processed foods, animal products, and limiting common allergens (soy and gluten) and oils/fats will give you that boost of energy that you need to live a life of health, happiness, and radiance. A diet that is a combination of cooked plants foods (legumes, grains, seeds, green and root vegetables) and raw plant foods is optimum for nutrition. My meal plan below will provide you with a diet that is 70-80% raw and 20-30% cooked which is the optimum balance. Below you will find several breakfast, lunch, dinner, and snack options with links to my recipes.  Check out my recipes page for other yummy recipes, including desserts!
