The Vegan Reset is a 28-day online program with nutritionist approved meal plans and workout guides to help kickstart your healthy lifestyle. Whether you're new to veganism and don't know where to start or you're already vegan, but would like more healhty meal prep and recipe inspiration, the Vegan Reset is for you.
You'll get 28 days of whole foods plant-based meal plans with delicious fully vegan recipes and meal prep options for your busy schedule. Our shopping lists include notes on how to make everything more budget-friendly, as well as suggestions for alternatives for those with allergies.
We'll guide you every step of the way and you'll be able to share the experience with the group, ask questions anytime and never feel alone. We'll also help keep you motivated with daily emails, podcast-style audio lessons and weekly Q&A's.
Each week, you'll receive a meal plan with recipes for 3 meals a day and snacks. Thanks to the meal prep option, you can spend as little or as much time in the kitchen as you'd like. We understand that people who are busy still want to enjoy delicious and healthy meals, so we make sure that you can enjoy these on the go as well. All of our meal plans are nutritionist approved and include 100% plant-based ingredients (mostly whole, unprocessed foods). They're refined sugar free and most of them are also naturally gluten-free (and if not, suggestions for alternatives are provided).
Alongside your weekly meal plans, you'll also get detailed and printer-friendly shopping lists. The detailed shopping lists include notes on which alternatives to opt for if you can't find a certain ingredient and tips on how to make it more affordable. The lists are divided into sections so that you can easily find the items in stores.
The program includes access to a private Facebook group so you can share the experience with other participants, ask for guidance and receive the support you need.
The workout guides include workouts that you can easily do at home. We believe in working out to feel good, enjoy yourself and reduce stress. There will be suggestions for all levels and especially for those who don't usually like to exercise.
Both veganism and health are about more than just the food we eat. Several times a week, you'll be sent podcast-style audio lessons discussing topics ranging from mental health to physical health, self care, ethics and a vegan lifestyle. There'll be guest speakers and lots of interesting discussions and topics. You can listen while you're on a walk, in your car, at breakfast or whenever you'd like. Transcripts will be provided for those who are deaf or hard of hearing.
Part of the profits of the program will be donated to vegan charities, rescue shelters and sanctuaries. We are currently working with Chilis on Wheels, a registered non profit organization that provides vegan meals for homeless people and low income communities.
Hi! I'm Kim-Julie, the founder of Best of Vegan and the Vegan Reset. Before going vegan overnight years ago, I was a junk food addict, a chain smoker and not the most active person (to say the least!). I was the last person anyone (including myself) expected to ever go vegan. So, if you love meat, cheese and eggs, trust me, I understand. I created to the Vegan Reset online program to show you that eating a plant-based diet and adopting healthier habits overall doesn't have to be boring, complicated or difficult at all. I know that any lifestyle change can seem overwhelming, so I'm here to guide you every step of the way.
Hi! I'm Sam, native New Yorker and Health enthusiast. I'm a longtime personal trainer and nutritionist who's passionate about veganism. I transitioned to a plant-based diet slowly over many years and it's changed my life completely. Both of my kids, Kuon who's almost 8, and Aselah who's 6, were born and raised vegan (fun fact: they're actually third generation vegans on their dad's side.) I'm here to encourage you and show you that you're capable of so much more than you think.
"I love this program. The recipes are so easy to make and taste great. I never felt hungry and also loved the group support and guidance. Will be joining again."
"The recipes are definitely going to be made again. I cooked for a bunch of carnivores and they liked them as well. I was under my normal budget price wise and I didn’t waste food.”
"I really enjoyed being part of a group all doing the same and sharing photos and ideas and not being judged if we changed our meal plan just a touch because of allergies or food dislikes, the flexibility was fantastic. I loved the lessons and being free to ask questions."
Most of the recipes are naturally gluten-free since so many unprocessed plant-based foods like fruits, vegetables and legumes are gluten-free, but whenever an ingredient is not (like couscous or whole wheat pasta), suggestions for alternatives will be provided.
The meal plans include limited amounts of soy in the form of soy sauce, tempeh or tofu. Suggestions for alternatives will be provided for those will allergies.
The overall cost of your weekly groceries will depend on which staple foods you already have, where you live and where you shop. We do provide plently of money-saving tips in the shopping list notes, so be sure to read those carefully.
