Fitness Update March 23rd Eat Plants First

Before we get to the fitness update, I have something SO EXCITING to share with you! Today is the grand opening of my Etsy shop! Wait. What? Your Etsy shop? I know, I know… just bear with me here. I have been working on a way to provide valuable information to people seeking change in their nutrition. The number one concern I was hearing, was “how do I get more plants in my daily life?” So, I created a downloadable and printable quick start guide called, “Eat Plants First”. Go check it out here, I’ll wait. I’m so excited!

Eat Plants First

What do you think?! I made it super colorful, because I’m all about “eating the rainbow”. The more colors we eat, the more variety of beneficial nutrients and antioxidants we get.

If you didn’t head over to the shop to read more about the quick guide, it’s ok, I understand! We are all busy and have many tasks going on all at once, every day. Above is a little preview of the fun logo I created for the quick start guide. My goal was to keep the guide as simple and straightforward as possible. Page one covers why it’s beneficial to switch to plant-based, or simply just add more plants to your daily nutrition. I also talk about some easy changes you can make to your kitchen to help with the transition. Page two is an 8.5 x 11 page you can print and attach to your fridge or pantry door, which will guide you in making the best choice possible for each meal. Page three gives some more details, for those who like to read the fine print. The number one goal? EAT PLANTS FIRST. If you can remember that, you are already taking steps to improve your health.

In the upcoming months I hope to add more items to my Etsy shop, which will be more tools and guides to help you maintain or switch to a plant-based lifestyle. Your support will make it grow, so please share with anyone you know who is interested in plant-based nutrition.
