This is it! We’ve made it to the final challenge of our ten weeks to plant-powered eating, and this final challenge is perhaps the biggest and most important: Change your habits.
Every day, we make about 200 food choices – that’s a lot! From what we eat to what we drink, it’s important we are mindful of our environment and the things affecting what we put on our plate. We want to create habits that are long lasting and repeatable; things that we consistently and consciously choose.
Repeating a behavior over and over is what creates habits and ultimately our lifelong behaviors. And, just like one healthy meal doesn’t make you “healthy,” one slip up with cheese or meat doesn’t derail your health goals. If you splurge on your birthday or a holiday, get back to your healthy habits you have created the next day.
Stay on track, plan your meals, prep for success, repeat! You will feel better, and your body will thank you for nourishing it with the power of plants.
Just because the challenge is over, doesn’t mean you can’t bookmark, pin or save these links and revisit the tips and recipes whenever you need them. Here is a recap of what we’ve accomplished over the last few months:
