I mentioned some fantastic and free whole food resources in last week's podcast. I'm pretty sure not everyone listened and or read that far. Just the way it is. I skim, too. 😉
These resources are just too good to get buried or missed, though, so today I want to draw out those gems so you don't miss them!
Getting Started and Succeeding with Whole Foods
We're talking about getting started (and succeeding) with a whole food diet.
Looking back, I have to say, my family jumped into whole foods cold turkey. I went through the pantry and tossed the boxes and mixes and white flour and white sugar and white rice and so on.
I refilled the cupboards and bins with whole food ingredients or minimally processed foods made with whole food ingredients (like peanut butter that's only peanuts and salt).
I checked out a lot of books from the library. I was on the internet a little and my favorite site for recipes and helps was Real Food Living by my friend Vickilynn Haycraft.
I learned to bake our own bread and make my own refried beans and cook dry beans. Lots of fundamental skills like that.
Though the process was filled with ups and downs — as anything like this inevitably is — we never looked back!
Then later on, I learned about traditional cooking methods like soaking and sprouting and sourdough. (Which can be part of your whole food switch, but maybe not depending on your approach.)
In any case, we started with a switch to whole foods, and that was perfect for us because it made our transition to traditional cooking that much easier.
You see, I was already familiar with most of the ingredients and just had to tweak some of the methods.
Why Whole Foods?
Lots of reasons, and they vary. Here are a few: lose weight, feel better, work around food allergies, save money, honor God's design…
All excellent reasons!
So… where do you start? Here's where the free and awesome resources come in.
Free Resource #1
What they've done is break down the steps of making a whole food switch.
These are action steps to make whole foods happen in your life — so you can start enjoying the benefits.
Their Quick Start Kit page includes documents and videos on these important topics:
- Whole food makeover 1 — setting up your kitchen
- Whole food makeover 2 — stocking your kitchen
- Changing your food cravings
- Getting your family on board
- Eating for energy
- Breaking the sugar addiction
Those are huge first steps in making the switch. They walk you through each one. Extremely helpful — and totally free.
Free Resources #2 through #4
France and Joshua offer a 6-day whole food transformation program (which is 30% off this week only). Now that's paid (and is well worth it if you're ready for that).
However, once again you get to benefit from their generosity, because they're giving away four free videos as a precursor to this program.
Here are the four free videos you get:
- 3 Keys to a Successful Health Transformation
- The #1 Surprising Reason Most People Fall Off the Whole Food Bandwagon & How to Fix It — not what you think!
- The REAL Truth Behind a Successful Health Transformation
- Introducing the Whole Food Jump Start Program
To get instant access to these four free videos, visit this page.
I'm sure you'll agree that they're helpful and inspiring. Video #3 shares a story about a woman who lost 35 pounds and got off 7 medications in just 3-1/2 months!
What If You Want More?
Of course you're welcome to stick with the free stuff I mentioned above and scour the web and books for resources to continue your journey! Lots of awesome stuff out there, including right here on this blog. 🙂
However, I've found there are times when you want a guide who's been down the road before and who can show you their tips and tricks for success. (This is the whole idea behind my unlimited online classes that teach the fundamentals of traditional cooking and on to sourdough to fermenting and more.)
What is that kind of expertise worth to you? Only you can say, but I think we all can agree that it is certainly worth something to benefit from someone else's expertise.
If you're at that place where you're willing to jump start your own whole food transformation, you should consider the week-long Whole Food Jump Start offered by France and Joshua of BeyondThePeel.net.
It's a one week online course that teaches you the foundational system to a successful whole food diet and jump starts your progress. You'll get whole food meals on the table every night of the week with very little time commitment, so you can stick to the whole food lifestyle and stay on track. You'll get help in achieving your health goals quickly, naturally, and safely.
The jump start program includes:
- The Whole Food Jump Start eCookbook
- 6 day, 6 module course
- 12 educational videos that teach you how to get amazing whole food meals on the table in a flash, and leave you feeling energized and vitalized
- Printable grocery lists
- Meal plans for whole food breakfasts, lunches, and dinners
- France's step-by-step system for naturally fueling your body through amazing tasting whole food meals that come together in minutes
- $680 worth of free bonuses! including special reports, recipes, and bonus videos
France and Joshua let me see inside and I was (and still am) really impressed. France is a cutie and fun to watch. The materials are high quality yet easy to implement.
I love how they organized the Whole Food Jump Start. It's kind of like the way I organize my classes — simple tasks that build incrementally to amazing changes.
You start the six day program with a shopping list and a cookbook. Then day by day through the week, you've got videos and discussions at your fingertips to make the recipes (and the transformation) happen.
A simple and smart approach.
