Week 1 To Totally Rad Holistic Living


Composed by: Kiki Athanas

Nutritional Details

Okay, let's jump right into things - without you having to even think! I've already planned out just about every nibble you're going to enjoy on this first week in your journey to holistic heaven.
Trust me, one week and you'll be hooked.

Words from Nutritionist Constantina Gravalos:

I look at healthy eating as a lifestyle, not a diet. The word ‘diet’ has a negative connotation attached to it. People think that going on a diet is a temporary fix. A fix that you can go on for a week or two and then go back to your old habits, but that’s not how things work. You need to be consistent with your healthy eating habits to truly see and feel the difference it does to your body, inside and out.

You want to make sure your body is getting the right amounts of macronutrients in order for your body to go through its necessary processes like sustaining energy, eliminating waste, and much more.

This plan is designed for the average active 25 year old female who is looking to spice up their menu instead of going for the same old boring choices! These recipes pack a nutritious punch and will keep you full all day long! Don’t worry when you see those high carbs, those are important! You need them for energy which is your fuel for the day.
