Hi Wellnista!

I have some great news for you today! The Glow Method 21 Day Fitness Challenge is here! I could not be more excited to bring you this program because it includes not only 21 days of home fitness workouts, a 21 day plant based nutrition program, but also a daily guide for wellness methods and self care practice!

But there’s still more! This program also includes a workout schedule calendar for tracking your workouts, a cleat eat food swap list, a portion plate control guide, and a plant based recipe guide!

21 Day Plant Based Nutrition Guide

Okay so to begin, let’s talk nutrition. I’m a Certified Holistic Nutritionist and my practice includes helping my clients start a Plant Based diet lifestyle for best health outcomes. A Plant Based Diet is a method of eating primarily plants as a main food source including vegetables, fruit, Beans, legumes, Seeds, and Whole grains. The Plant Based diet can include small amounts of meat but no more than 2 oz. of meat is recommended for daily consumption. The Plant Based diet does not include dairy, processed foods, or sugar. Stop by and check out this post to learn more about the benefits of Plant Based Eating here.

The Glow Method 21 Day Meal Plan is packed with delicious recipes that are easy to make and delicious to eat. I made sure each recipe would be user friendly, quick and simple for beginners.

21 Day Fitness Plan Guide

As a Certified Personal Trainer a majority of my clients are women with work schedules, mothers, daughters, friends, partners, and happen to live a full schedule with meaningful responsibilities. The 21 Day Fitness Plan is designed to be easy to follow with daily home workouts that feature strength building (weight lifting) or endurance building (cardio). The weekly plan provides an option for a 20 minute or 30 minute workout. The home workouts are scheduled for 6 days a week with 1 rest day/ day off per week. If you are strapped for time you can split your workout into two smaller sessions per day to keep working the program. It’s still my firm recommendation to workout first in the morning before starting the other parts of your day for an energy advantage.

Anyone who completes the Glow Method 21 Day Challenge can participate in the challenger giveaway by sending your Glow Method 21 before and after pictures to contact@brandijacksonwellness.com. The winners will be announce quarterly. The Prize is a 100$ Visa Gift Card!

21 Day Wellness Plan

As a Mental Health Clinician and Wellness Coach, it’s clear that during the fall and winter season there is an increased experience of Seasonal Affective Disorder, General Anxiety, and General Depression. The Glow Method 21 Day Fitness Calendar also doubles as a resource for daily wellness practice. And to make sure wellness options are more user friendly, The Glow Method 21 Day Program includes a 100 ways to shine Guide for Daily Custom Self Care practice. Self care is not just grooming or bubble baths. The 100 ways to Shine Guide incorporates self care methods that are health related, hygiene related, social, and interpersonal methods. Pick the one’s you love and explore the other options as you go!

How to Eat A Plant Based Diet You'll Love After the "Honeymoon" Phase is Over: A Beginners Guide + Free 7 Day Meal Plan

Hello Wellnista!

I have some great and magical information to share with you! Let’s chat about how to eat a Plant Based Diet You’ll Love After the “Honeymoon” Phase is over.

What is a Plant Based Diet?

A Plant Based Diet is a diet that is primarily made up of vegetables, fruit, healthy fats, whole grains, and little to no meat products. Meat is optional with a daily intake of no more than 10% of a daily food intake. The saying goes “treat meat as a condiment” instead of a side dish or main dish. The Plant Based Diet is based on scientific evidence for nutritional best practices to ensure positive physical, mental, emotional health, healthy weight, Diabetes symptom recovery, Cancer symptom recovery, heart disease recovery, healthy life span longevity and more benefits are still being learned every year! If you want to see great Plant Based educational documentaries, books, or scientific journal information; check out this great article by the Mind Body Green Blog here!

Eat Plant Based Long Term With No Honeymoon Hangover!

Eat Plant Based Long Term With No Honeymoon Hangover!

The Diet Roller Coaster is Closed.

Have you ever tried a new diet lifestyle in order to reach an important goal? Maybe it was weight loss paired with the Keto Diet or gaining muscle paired with the Paleo Diet. There’s also Veganism and glowing skin, intuitive eating and mindfulness, macros counting and abs, the lemonade, soup, or juice diets to lose an emergency 10 pounds. But, the big question here is why aren’t these diets sustainable as a long term lifestyle? The answer, the diets all miss sustainability by depleting or removing an important food source you need to feel healthy long term. Yes, I’m speaking to the general commercial versions of the diets aforementioned, but stay with me so we can get to the good stuff coming up!

Ultimately, the one take away all the diets above have in common are the roller coaster effect of being fun, exciting, thrilling even before the diet ride starts to feel bumpy, with highs and lows on your mind and body. The Plant Based Diet is lifestyle alternative that makes it easy to say goodbye to the roller coaster diet life long term.

How to Start a Plant Based Diet

Im gonna tell you the same tips I share with my nutrition coaching clients so listen close! And as always, leave a comment below if you have any questions.

  1. Decide if your are ready to commit to new nutrition lifestyle and WHY????

  2. Write a 5-7 day food journal. Review your food journal so you can understand your eating patterns and decide what foods to remove, transition or increase to start your Plant Based transition.

  3. Clean your cabinets, fridge and freezer of any unhealthy foods that don’t match the Plant based diet.

  4. Find your substitutions for the foods you crave most first!

  5. Get your groceries and meal prep your meals for the week.

  6. Hydrate properly per your daily water intake amount.

  7. Talk to your support team of family, friends, or your nutritionist for support.

“Make it Easy” Meal Plan

So, your interested in trying the Plant Based Diet Lifestyle. Great! How can I make your kick-off even easier? Here’s how, I have a free downloadable 7-Day Plant Based Meal Plan for you! Over on my Instagram account I posted about cravings and comfort foods. The Lovely Wellnista’s that left comments there asked for a fish or poultry option and a sweet/ dessert option for cravings.

I should also note that cravings are fine to respect with moderation! If your craving “lives” for longer than 5-7 days, you should probably just have the craving food and move on. This is another great topic that we can dive deeper into on another blog post.

Meal Plan Ahead + Tips

Alright, so check out this free 7-Day Meal Plan and the accompanying recipe guide. But first, I have some quick pointers to mention for reading the 7-Day “Make it Easy” Meal Plan. 1. Everything on the menu does not need to be made from scratch. Each week it’s easy and smart to buy fresh whole foods with longer shelf time and to only prep a few foods that are going to be staples for the week. 2. Only use the color coded portions of the 7 Day “Make it Easy” Meal Plan when there is no specific measurement for the meal plan meal. 3. The color code also turns out to be a great guide for determining how much of each ingredient you will need when grocery shopping.
