Think of a “reset” as you would think of restarting a device that stopped working the way it should. Much in the same way, our bodies can start to feel less than optimal if we don’t give them the love and attention they need and deserve. The Vegan Reset gives your body a break from meat, dairy, and processed foods so it can perform at its best, leaving you feeling happy and energized.
Inside these pages, Kim-Julie introduces you to the benefits of a reset, guides you through the
28-day meal plan, and finishes with additional recipes to carry you beyond the reset—all brought to life with her gorgeous photography throughout.
Shopping lists and instructions for advance prep make it a cinch to pull together three quick meals every day, such as Rice Noodles with Veggies & Peanut Sauce, Pineapple Fried Wild Rice, Berry Green Smoothie Bowl, Blueberry-Banana Ice Cream, and Creamy Butternut Noodles. Journaling prompts, breathing exercises, and other inspirations throughout offer a holistic approach that goes beyond just a diet.
After the reset, Kim-Julie shares a thoughtful exploration of what it means to be vegan plus additional healthful and delicious recipes. With its emphasis on satisfying plant-based foods and its achievable 28-day plan, the Vegan Reset is the perfect way to meet your health goals and get your body on track.
