LOTS TO LIKE ABOUT THE ORGANIC PHARMER 5 DAY JUMP START MEAL PROGRAM:

  • FRIDGE FULL OF HIGH QUALITY PLANT-BASED MEALS, SNACKS, JUICES, SMOOTHIES AND SHOTS.

  • FIVE DAYS OF ANTI-INFLAMMATORY EATING. NO GLUTEN, SOY, CORN DAIRY, EGGS. GUARANTEED.

  • THE CONVENIENCE OF A FULLY PREPARED, “NO COOKING REQUIRED” MEAL PROGRAM. NO HURDLES BETWEEN ME AND EATING WELL.

  • LOVED FRESH, COLD PRESSED GREEN JUICES EACH MORNING. SO REFRESHING.

  • ENJOYED CREAMY INFUSED NUT MILKS AT NIGHT. THEY WERE COZY AND COMFORTING. PERFECT WRAP TO THE DAY.

  • IMMUNITY SHOT. COMES IN A LITTLE GLASS BOTTLE LIKE THE ONE FROM ALICE IN WONDERLAND, MINUS THE WORDS “DRINK ME”. FEELS REALLY SPECIAL, A TAD BIT MEDICINAL, AND TASTES GREAT TOO. TIP: ADD IT TO A GLASS OF SPARKLING WATER TO MAKE A HEALTHY“MOCKTAIL”.

  • PORTIONS. THEY WERE GENEROUS AND FILLING.

  • NO HUNGER. NO CRAVINGS.

  • REALIGNED ME WITH MY WELLNESS HABITS, INCLUDING DRINKING MORE WATER, SIPPING HOT WATER AND LEMON FIRST THING IN THE A.M., REDUCING CAFFEINE, AND DEEP BREATHING.

  • IT WAS A NICE BREAK TO STEP AWAY FROM ALL FOOD RELATED WORK AND DECISIONS: NO PLANNING. NO SHOPPING, NO COOKING, NO CLEANING. GAVE ME THE SPACE I CRAVED TO SLOW DOWN, AND FEEL MORE GROUNDED.

HERE’S WHAT WOULD HAVE MADE IT EVEN BETTER:

  • STOCKING MY FRIDGE WITH A FEW EXTRA ITEMS BEFORE I STARTED. YES, I DID A SMALL FOOD SHOP ONCE THE PROGRAM BEGAN, BUT IT WOULD HAVE BEEN NICE TO HAVE IT IN THE FRIDGE, READY TO GO!

HERE’S WHAT I BOUGHT:

  1. PRE-WASHED + PACKAGED BABY GREENS TO USE AS SIDES FOR WRAPS, TARTINES + A MORNING CHICKPEA/VEGGIE FRITTATA. THIS IS NOT REQUIRED, BUT I’M ALWAYS LOOKING TO ADD GREENS WHERE I CAN.

  2. CRUDITE TO ENJOY WITH THE THE OP HUMMUS INCLUDED AS AN “ANYTIME” SNACK IN THE PROGRAM.

  3. LEMONS AND LIMES TO ADD BRIGHTNESS TO GREEN JUICES, SALADS AND TARTINES.

  4. AVOCADO TO ADD FIBER AND HEALTHY FATS TO SALADS/SNACKS. ESPECIALLY GOOD IF YOU ARE PLANNING ANY VIGOROUS WORKOUTS WHILE ON THE PROGRAM.

  • PICKING THE RIGHT 5 DAYS TO COMMIT TO THE PROGRAM. I DID THE PROGRAM FROM TUESDAY TO SATURDAY, WHICH TOOK ME INTO THE WEEKEND. FOR ME, IT WOULD HAVE MADE MORE SENSE TO DO THE PROGRAM DURING THE WEEK, WHEN I’M MORE STRUCTURED AND LESS LIKELY TO EAT OUT OR INDULGE.  HERE’S WHERE THE 3 DAY JUMP START CAN MAKE A LOT OF SENSE, AS IT’S EASIER TO CARVE OUT THREE DAYS, THAN FIVE, AND CAN BE USED AS A “START OF THE WEEK (M, T, W) RESET”.

  • I LOVE THE @ORGANIC-PHARMER_NY POWER PROTEIN BAR, AND WISH THERE WAS AN EXTRA ONE OR TWO INCLUDED IN THE PROGRAM. IT’S DELICIOUS, SUPER PORTABLE AND FILLED WITH OATS, WALNUTS, BANANA, GOJI BERRIES, COCONUT CHIPS, CHIA SEEDS, HEMP PROTEIN POWDER, AND LOTS OF OTHER YUMMY, NUTRITIOUS INGREDIENTS! I MAY NEED TO NEGOTIATE FOR THAT NEXT TIME.

ALL IN ALL I WAS VERY HAPPY WITH THE 5 DAY JUMP START MEAL PROGRAM, AND RECOMMEND IT TO ANYONE IN GENERALLY GOOD HEALTH LOOKING TO TEMPORARILY STEP OFF THE MERRY-GO-ROUND, INFUSE THEIR DIET WITH HEALTHY, ORGANIC, PLANT-BASED FOODS, AND FEEL GREAT.
