I have the awesome opportunity to collaborate with the Physicians Committee for Responsible Medicine and Shape to try out a Vegan diet for 21 days! (That means no animal products, whatsoever.) This plan is great if you’re looking to lose weight, have been considering Veganism but weren’t sure how (check out how one woman makes her Vegan diet easy), or just want to start the year off on a healthy foot in general. I’m working with a few experts, dietician Susan Levin and Daphne Oz, author of The Dorm Room Diet (perfect, right?) and I’ll be sharing their tips along my 3-week journey.
The Kickstart plan provides recipes for three meals a day, but since cooking all three of those meals isn’t realistic for many of us, I’ll be writing about my modifications of the plan, both while living at home with a meat-eating family over the holiday break, and once I get back to school for the final two weeks. Susan assured me that the creators of the plan encourage experimentation and creativity in the kitchen, which takes off a lot of pressure to follow these recipes to a T.
