Action Steps to Getting Started
- 30-day Detox and Taste Bud Reprogramming
- There is no detox guide. Just take the bad stuff out and eat whole foods.
- Detox from: vitamins, supplements, protein powders, sugars, oils, coffee, food additives, animal products, etc.
- The only thing we supplement on a Protective Diet is vitamin B12
- Taste bud Reprogramming
Without Sugars–taste buds get hyper-sensitive; fruit tastes incredibly sweet.
Without Fats–everything starts to taste creamy. In the beginning, fat-free may taste flat.
- Use the recipes to eat through cravings and stock your pantry as you go.
- Navigate the Recipes—your ticket to optimal health
- So much education is included in the recipe write-ups!
- ALWAYS read ALL PARTS of the recipe completely before you attempt it. Green words are links to descriptions and a marketplace for the best deal.
- You will learn simple, clear and innovative cooking techniques to make things crispy, brown, smooth and creamy without oil, fat, eggs, dairy, nuts, flaxseed, dates, etc.
- Find recipes using the search box, or by category using green links at the top of every page.
- A new recipe is published on the PD homepage every week by Monday at Midnight to keep it exciting.
- Stock your Protective Diet Pantry–based on the recipes that appeal to you
- Do NOT go out and buy everything in the pantry stocking lessons.
- Pick out some recipes that appeal to you. Try them out. If you like them, stock up on those pantry staple ingredients. These become “go-to” recipes. Print and put the recipes inside your cupboard door. Find 5 fast favorites you can rotate through as you learn.
- Recipes are created using a carefully selected pool of protective ingredients. Every ingredient is used in a variety of recipes so don’t be afraid to stock up.
- Source additive-free ingredients (food additives drive cravings and overconsumption):
– White chia seed for thickening fat-free salad dressings
- Eventually, your pantry will be stocked and shopping will be primarily for fresh ingredients.
- Set Up Your Kitchen—Your Workplace for Wellness
- To enjoy Protective Diet recipes, you will need:
– Instant Pot—optional, but a “game-changer”
- Get Educated and Regroup in Class–We are suggesting a very different lifestyle. Feel normalized by regrouping with us.
- Live Video Class– every Tuesday on Protective Diet Education’s Private Facebook page
– Every Class includes: cooking techniques and kitchen systems to make you look and feel like a plant-based
superstar, nutritional information to reinforce why we are doing this, and some motivation/excitement to show
you how easy and rewarding this can be.
- Pre-Class Chat—begins 30 minutes before class; no video or audio; type questions in ALL CAPS
- Saturday Morning Live Coaching Hour—chat format; same private Facebook group
- Class Archives—customize your own education by watching classes on topics of interest to you. Search by keyword or 3-digit class number (001, 002…035…126, etc.) in the red search box or enjoy by category on the Archives page.
- Manage Your Expectations—results are inevitable
- Weight Loss—when eating a diet for optimal health your body will lean down
- Average weight loss is 10lbs a month—(i.e. if you have 50lbs to lose, mark your calendar for 5 months out. It will not come off evenly, but in clusters. Weigh yourself on that date and you will have lost an average of 10lbs per month)
- Weight fluctuates while your body is detoxing. Do not be discouraged by the number on the scale. RECOMMENDATION: only weigh in once a month or get rid of the scale altogether.
- Julie Marie demonstrates a quick weeknight meal of Mix & Mac using the Instant Pot.
- Breakfast Brownies Tips
- These begin tasting decadent by the 3rd week of taste bud reprogramming.
- Cut into small cubes and freeze in a container for a delicious summertime post-meal treat.
- Enjoy plain or sweeten with Chocolate Fondue, Creamy Chocolate Frosting, Sugar-Free Powdered Sugar, Sugar-Free Macerated Strawberries, or Sugar-Free Fruit Jam
- See more meal ideas and demonstrations in the Free Videos section on our Free content page.
