All about our clean 7-day Summer Plan
We will send you the recipes and shopping list on 5 June so you can be ready to start on 7 June with us! Breakfasts, lunches and dinners will be enough for two people for seven days.
Our latest plan is all about eating clean, which to us means minimising processed foods and enjoying nourishing ingredients in their most natural state. We've worked with food writer Sara Buenfeld and nutritional therapist Kerry Torrens to bring you seven days of fresh, good-for-you meals that also taste great. We’ve analysed every recipe and each day’s plan to ensure that you’ll get all the nutrition you need. We’ve included vegetarian alternatives, plus it’s easy to mix and match dishes so you can enjoy the foods you love and avoid the ones you’re not so keen on. Our week's worth of recipes will leave you glowing, but it’s just an introduction to a healthier, more mindful way of eating - and we'll give you plenty of tips at the end of the plan to carry on eating clean.
What are the benefits?
Glowing skin, a flatter stomach and heaps of energy are all side effects of this way of eating, plus you should sleep better and think more clearly. If you continue to eat clean beyond these seven days, you’ll also improve your heart health and digestion, and help to balance your hormones.
All the ingredients in our 7-day Summer Diet Plan are wholefoods that involve zero or minimal processing. We've included vegetarian options for all dishes and, while we suggest eating the meals on particular days for the most balanced approach, you will still get all the benefits if you want to mix and match.
All the recipes have been designed and analysed by our nutritional therapist to provide the perfect balance of complete proteins, slow-burning carbs, vitamin- and fibre-rich vegetables and salads, while being low in salt and unrefined sugars.
We know diet plans can be time consuming, so we've made suggestions for getting ahead and have tried to keep preparation and cooking times to the minimum. We've attempted to keep costs down and minimise waste, though there may be the odd occasion where you can get creative with some leftovers. If you have any questions or comments about any of the recipes our cookery team are keen to hear them - please send us an e-mail to firstname.lastname@example.org.
Over the course of the seven days we'll send you three newsletters to support, motivate and provide you with all the tools and expert advice you need to see the plan through to the end. Once you have signed up above we will send you a welcome e-mail and then you will recieve your recipes, shopping list and the full plan on 5 June 2015. We will also send you the following newsletters to help you make the most of the seven days:
7 June - Time to start! We'll send you a newsletter on your first day to make sure you're all set. With tips for snacking, staying hydrated and shopping clean. We'll also give you details of our social media Q&A that week, which will give you the opportunity to ask the experts behind the plan any questions you may have.
10 June - Half way through! Our motivational newlsetter will be full of inspirational features and tips to keep you going. We'll have advice for introducing some exercise to your healthy regime, plus guides on keeping your diet balanced after the seven days.
13 June - Congratulations! On your final day we'll send you a well deserved digital round of applause, plus lots of tips to help you make eating clean a way of life.
