If you started the 28-Day Challenge with us two weeks ago, way to go! You’ve got two weeks of healthy eating under your belt. And there are still some more great nourishing recipes and foods out there for you to try and enjoy.

And if you’re just starting the challenge this week, be sure to read our week 1 post and our week 2 post. We can all use a little guidance and inspiration in the kitchen, particularly when you’re trying out a new style of cooking. Chad Sarno, our Health Starts Here chef, created this set of cooking videos featuring quick and simple recipes, like this Tempeh Curry:

Plus Chad has some great tips and techniques in his videos on Essential Cooking Methods for Healthy Eating. With some of these new tricks in your kitchen toolbox, you’ll be creating your own healthy masterpieces in no time.

Now, if you’ve been with us since the start of the challenge you’ve probably perused the menu plans. If you’re just beginning, be sure to check them out.

Based on our four pillars of healthy eating, we’ve created free weekly menu plans, assembled cooking tips and videos, and put together a four-week newsletter series designed to support you as you travel the path to better health.

Each of the weekly meal plans focuses on plant-based, nutrient-dense whole foods and healthy fats. Plus healthy recipes for weeknight comfort foods like pasta, burgers, and curry. Some favorite foods for week three include our healthy spin on an Italian classic in Eggplant Bolognese, the gorgeous, nutrient dense Collard Rolls, weeknight favorites Turkey Sloppy Janes and Southwest Veggie Burgers plus Cocoa-Almond Baked Breakfast Quinoa to get your day off to a nutritiously tasty start.

   

 

So tell us, are you doing the challenge? If so, you’re over half way there! How is it going?
