The year has finally come to a close and you know what they say: “new year, new you.” But rather than thinking of the New Year as a time to make drastic alterations to your life – which can make it difficult to maintain your resolution in the long run, think of it a promise to yourself to make positive lifestyle changes.
New Year, Better You
Maybe this year, your New Years’ resolutions involve improving your health, losing weight, saving money, being kinder to the planet and animals, or getting organized. Maybe you just want to cook at home more often. Recent data shows that home cooking becoming more popular – as more look to save time, money, or avoid fast food – and 82 percent of American meals are cooked at home. Maybe you’re looking to achieve all of the above?
LIVEKINDLY has launched a new personalized vegan meal planning service designed to make sticking to these goals easier. The planner, which features chef-developed recipes and access to plant-based nutrition experts and health coaches, can be easily customized to help you stick to your resolution. Celebs including Grammy award-winning singer Beyoncé have sworn by using a plant-based meal planner. The artist used the 22 Days Nutrition program, which she co-owns with Jay-Z and trainer Marco Borges, to get in shape for Coachella.
“One of the most frequent comments I notice from our readers is that they want to cook vegan food at home, but they don’t know where to start or they have trouble finding the time to cook. This meal planner will make it easy for anyone to balance life and make healthy food,” said LIVEKINDLY CEO and founder Jodi Monelle.
Personalized to Your Needs
Looking to put on muscle or gain weight? You can choose high-protein, high-carb recipes. It can also be adjusted according to specific dietary requirements such as gluten-free and soy-free as well as taste preferences. Not a fan of seitan and other meat substitutes? You can leave it out of recipes with the tap of a button. Recipes are also suggested based on how many you’re feeding, whether it’s just you or you and your family.
Save Time, Eat Healthier, Be Kinder to the Planet
According to the Mayo Clinic, planning your meals in advance has been shown to help you eat healthier. Not only that, a growing body of research shows that a plant-based diet is one of the healthiest ways to eat – and figuring out what you’re going to eat for the week saves you time in the long run. With a vegan meal planner, you can plan a week’s worth of recipes in minutes. No more spending hours thumbing through cookbooks and websites.
The meal planner also allows you to choose how much time you have to cook, so you can spend less time in the kitchen and more time on other things – like a post-work gym session.
It can also help you reduce your carbon footprint. Once your meals are set, you get a shopping list with everything you need, so you won’t end up with any groceries that you don’t end up using. According to the USDA, roughly 30 to 40 percent of the food supply – that’s about 133 billion pounds – goes to waste. Eating more plant-based meals can drastically reduce your contributions to climate change and, not to mention, it’s far kinder to animals.
