Book Description

Food wellness is a term used to describe the ideal state for adopting healthy eating habits into a busy day-to-day life. When food wellness is achieved, the body and mind perform optimally.

The Complete Plate shows that weight maintenance, and weight loss, can be achieved through a balanced diet of ingredients that come together to meet both nutritional and caloric demands. Featuring meal plans for diets of 1,500, 2,000, and 2,500 calories, it is a collection of 30 meal plans with each day perfectly balanced to provide 100% of your daily macro and micro nutrient needs.*

The 90 recipes range from an indulgent “Coconut and Flax Seed French Toast” to a savory “Portobello and Prosciutto Pizza” to a nourishing “Creamy Corn, Ham, and Roast Pepper Chowder” and include additional snacks so that readers are satiated and energized throughout the day. The Complete Plate is a must-have for health-minded readers.

* Based on current daily recommended intake (DRI) values.
