Plant-Based Basics is Open

Sharing is caring!

If you are new to eating a plant-based diet or if you need a little motivation to start again, you will be happy to hear that Plant-Based Basics is open for enrollment. 

Plant-Based Basics is a course to help you transition to a plant-based diet. It’s designed for people who are new to plant-based eating. You can sign up here! 

Plant-Based Basics Plant-Based Course

What You’ll Learn

You’ll learn everything you need to know to start eating a plant-based diet. There are about 20 lessons that are delivered over a month. You’ll also get weekly plant-based meal plans that include a shopping list, and you’ll be a part of an exclusive Facebook group with a weekly Q&A. 

How Much Time Does it Take

Don’t worry if you have a busy schedule, each lesson is only about 5 minutes long. We cut to the chase! If you can find about 25 minutes a week for the lessons, you’ll learn what to eat, how to shop, time saving tips, money saving strategies and more! 

The course only last 4 weeks. That doesn’t sound like a lot of time but we will make the most of it.

Why Plant-Based Basics

There are a lot of doctors, dietitians, and bloggers with plant-based courses and resources. I have nothing bad to say about any of them. What makes Plant-Based Basics different is that we are regular people who went plant-based for health. We both work full time, we have kids that keep us busy, and have to figure out how to make plant-based eating a priority with limited time and resources. 

Course enrollment is only open until January 4, 2020. That means we will have a small community going through the course together. If you have questions or need someone to bounce ideas off, we’re here for you.

What’s Changed

Plant-Based Basics has recently undergone an overhaul! We kept our favorite parts, updated lessons that were out of date, and threw out some that weren’t really relevant. We have completely new Plant-Based Meal Plans with recipes that I’ve never shared publicly. 

Plant-Based Basics has it’s own site! You can log in from your computer, tablet or smart phone to view lessons, download PDFs, or listen to audio of the lessons.

  1. I have 2 questions about your course. One is I HATE quinoa is there a way to be plant based and not eat that? Also, my husband has celiac disease will that be a major problem? Thanks!

    • Quinoa is definitely not for everyone. You can easily eat plant-based and never have quinoa!
      Gluten is not required for plant-based eating. You can be gluten-free and plant-based.
      There are so many foods available on a plant-based diet, subbing out quinoa or gluten is pretty easy.
      I’ll use quinoa and rice interchangeably, rice just has a longer cooking time usually. My kids eat wheat bread. It can be difficult to find processed gluten-free breads that are completely plant-based. Most store bought gluten-free breads have egg.
      It’s completely doable though!
      Feel free to reach out with any questions!

  2. Are there any special vitamins needed to start a plant based diet? When does the next session start?

    • Hi Raquel,
      I’m not a proponent of starting any supplements unless they are needed. B-12 is the only supplement that most doctors recommend of people who do not eat animal products. I get blood work done a couple of times a year to see if I am deficient in anything. I need to supplement B-12 and Vitamin D.
      I won’t ask you to purchase any supplements and I do not sell any supplements. Having an annual check up with your doctor is a great idea, your doctor should be able to give you guidance on any supplements that may be needed.

      We haven’t decided when we will open the course again. We close enrollment so we can really invest our time in helping current students and providing them all the resources they need to be successful. We may open it again in the spring.
