If you want to feel your best this summer, this 5-Day Reset is for you! It takes all the guess-work out of what you’re going to eat, and includes a shopping list & meal prep guide to make your life as easy as possible.

Similar to my 5-Day Fall Reset program, this digital guide is filled with seasonal recipes, meal plans, and meal prep tips to make healthy eating easier.

Why only 5 days?

I love creating shorter meal plans like this one, because it is affordable and easy to get started with. There’s no long-term commitment, because you’ll be following the guidelines in this program for just 5 days.

You can do anything for 5 days.

That leaves your weekend free for social events (so you won’t feel deprived during any holiday parties coming up!), and you can go right back to this plan the following week if you want to keep your momentum going. Which, I hope you’ll do.

What’s Included?

This is a digital PDF that is 60-pages long (to be clear, it’s not a printed book). It includes easy recipes that have been developed specifically for this program, using seasonal produce, all of which are plant-based and gluten-free.

Here’s what you’ll find in this guide:

  • 15 Summer-inspired recipes & photos (probably more than you’ll need for 5 days!)
  • Tips that may help support detoxification and weight loss
  • Two complete 5-day Meal Plans for one adult (that way you’ll try all of the recipes without a lot of leftover food waste)
  • One complete 5-day Meal Plan for two adults
  • Shopping lists for all 3 meal plans
  • 3 detailed “Meal Prep” Guides, customized for each meal plan
  • A Sample Daily Schedule
  • Printable Food Journal
  • Bonus recipe ideas to help you continue after the 5 days!

If you’re like me, and don’t follow a plant-based diet all the time, I find that making vegan recipes for 5 days encourages you to eat more plants, and as a result you’ll squeeze more nutrients into your day.

These meal plans are also properly combined, so all the guess-work is done for you, and they include 3 meals + 2 snacks each day to keep you feeling satisfied.

Paleo Modifications

In case you prefer more of a grain-free, or Paleo, approach, there are also modifications included in this digital guide to make that easy. There are only 4 recipes that call for gluten-free grains or legumes in this guide, so it’s easy enough to switch those out for a Paleo-compliant alternative.

The only added sweetener used in this guide is maple syrup, to keep this guide 100% plant-based. You can also use honey, instead of maple syrup, if you’re not vegan.

Healthy Recipes Made as Easy as Possible

I want to make this program as EASY as possible, for as many people as possible, so these recipes are purposefully simple, while also being sturdy enough to be used as leftovers for another meal in the future. That means you won’t have to spend your entire week in the kitchen, and you won’t be overwhelmed by huge ingredient lists!

The meal plans are designed to use up all of the food you prepare, with possibly a snack or two being leftover for your weekend, too. That means if I ask you to buy a can of coconut milk or tomato paste, you can be sure I’ll have recipes so that you can use the whole thing!

Other than physically coming to your house and cooking for you (I wish I could!), I think I’ve done just about everything in my power to make this meal plan as easy as possible for you.

  • Your shopping list is done.
  • You’ll know exactly what you need to prepare for the recipes in your meal plan.
  • You’ll know exactly what you’re going to eat each day.
  • And then you get to eat whatever you want on the weekend– which may very well be more of the recipes in this guide. The choice is yours!

If this sounds like something that would be helpful to you, you can grab this digital PDF for just $9.99.

That’s roughly the equivalent of buying 2 fancy coffee drinks this summer. Since you can keep this guide forever, and you can make a healthier Vegan Latte at home, I think this is clearly the better value.

  1. I love the recipes and overall plan for this reset—thanks! Since I’m allergic to jackfruit, I’m wondering if you have any recommendations for a substitute that will keep the dish vegan and properly combined?

    1. I know some people use mushrooms for a meaty texture, but I also think white beans would be nice. Sort of like BBQ baked beans when tossed with that sauce. Either option would work here!

      1. Thanks, Megan! My computer had issues, hence my double posting. I will try the mushrooms because I am moving on to week 2, which has the white bean potato salad. Everything has been AMAZINGGGGGG and I even made the zucchini hummus today. Wow. Wow. Wow. I’m doing this reset to feel better about what I’m eating but in this week I lost 2 pounds. Not a goal, but I’m not complaining! Everything has been delicious so far, and very easy to make. Not only will I add these recipes into my summer rotation, but I’m looking forward to the Fall reset, as well!

        1. These were ALL amazing recipes! I’d love (and would quickly purchase) longer plans so that I can feel good knowing that my meals are healthy and properly combined!

  2. I love that there are different, customizable shopping lists and especially that there’s a convenient prep day. As usual, your recipes look amazing. Thank you! I’m wondering, is there a substitution for jackfruit that you recommend that will keep the dinner vegan and properly combined? Unfortunately, I have a jackfruit allergy (but it tastes SO good!) Thanks!!
