Health Starts Here Menu Plan & Shopping List

Over the years, I have regularly worked with people to help expand their palates and improve their diets, both on a personal level and in restaurants wanting to offer more health supportive options. While working as a personal chef, I knew that the first week of a new eating plan would be a little rocky for many. There are lots of things to consider when you are taking a new approach to preparing and planning meals.

To make things easier, we’ve created a Health Starts Here™ Menu Plan and Shopping List that provides you with a roadmap to a full week of healthy eating for two. The menu plan includes three meals a day for a week, complete with recipes and a detailed shopping list that you can easily customize to your tastes. We’re hoping you find this really helpful and would love to get some feedback on it. Here’s an overview of the menu:

Remember, if you simply don’t have time to cook, need to supplement a main course, or forgot to pack your lunch, you can always pick up a few of our delicious Health Starts Here prepared food options. From pre-packed meals and our salad bar, to our chef's case and hot bar items, we have the grab and go options to eat healthy when you don't have time to cook. Also look for our new line of amazing sprouted grain breads found in most of our bakeries.

When you see the Health Starts Here logo, you know your food is focused on plant-strong™ foods (veggies, fruit, beans and whole grains), nutrient dense, made with unprocessed whole food ingredients, and free of added oil.
