22 Days Nutrition A.K.A “The Beyoncé Diet” | Using The Meal Planner

Hey everyone!

I’m back! I know…it’s been awhile. Today I am officially 5 weeks postpartum. Woo hoo! I still have a bit more recovering to do, but overall I’m feeling pretty good. 🙂

Today, I wanted to share with you something I decided to try again (for the millionth time, L.O.L.). I am going back to a plant-based diet. I say for the “millionth time” because I have attempted to do this several times and just kept falling off the wagon.

I was recently browsing around on Beyoncé’s Instagram (yes, I’m a fan) and noticed her post announcing that she was going vegan before her performances for Coachella and invited her fans to do so also. She dropped a link in her bio that lead me to the 22 Days Nutrition Meal Planner.

I was very intrigued. The Meal Planner membership claimed to offer 1-on-1 support from food coaches, new recipes that are added daily, a meal plan that works with your lifestyle, nutritional info on each recipe, and in some areas, even grocery delivery.

I thought to myself, “This is an answer to my prayers! Maybe I just need a little more support and guidance to help me stick with my commitment to switch over to a plant-based diet.” So, I happily proceeded with the sign up process. After answering all the preliminary questions about my lifestyle, I was brought to the checkout page….

I’m not gonna lie, I initially hesitated when I saw the price tag. The membership was $99 for a year’s worth of 1-on-1 support and daily recipes, which ultimately breaks down to $1.90 a week. Granted, I had a 20% off coupon so my yearly membership would come out to about $79, but I still, I hesitated.

I figured, “Ah, I’ll just go back on Pinterest, look for recipes and try this whole vegan thing again on my own. I just need more will power. Ya, I’ll do that! Save my money!” But then I paused and reflected. I had already done that several times and that method wasn’t working for me. And then I thought, “Why? Why in my mind am I not worth spending $79 to help me achieve optimal health and reach my health goals? I know for a fact that our family is spending AT LEAST $79 on fast food or crap that we don’t need, so why won’t I invest this much into something far more valuable, MYSELF?”

Isn’t it strange how we as humans do that to ourselves? We sell ourselves short, think we aren’t good enough, worthy enough to care for our own well-being that we hesitate to spend $79 (that we were gonna spend anyways) on something that could completely transform us.

Well I’m DONE. I’m done with not being the best I KNOW I can be. It’s time for me to start investing more into ME.

I think the birth of my second child has really opened up my eyes as to how much I have neglected and mistreated myself, which I think is a common thing for mom’s to experience, but it shouldn’t be.

So, I’m taking the first step and if you are reading this and going through something similar, then I hope you will take that step with me as well. I truly believe changing the way you eat can have a huge impact on your life, because when you eat well, you feel well, and when you feel well, you do well.

Alright, now that we got all that sappy, emotional stuff out the way, {L.O.L} let me show you some awesome features of the 22 Day Revolution Meal Planner!

Let’s check out the home page you’ll be brought to right when you log in.

22 Days Revolution Meal Planner

As you can see, they have this weeks recipes laid out. For each day of the week you are given recipes for breakfast, lunch and dinner. Within each of those categories you are given 3 different recipes to choice from and with varying levels of difficulty that each recipe requires. For me, I always choose the recipes that are categorized as “super easy” and that are less time consuming to prepare. As a mom, I don’t have time to be all day in the kitchen, so “super easy” is a no brainer choice for me.

If you click the “ADD+” button, you can add the recipe(s) to any menu you’d like. You are given two pre-made menus when you first sign up, “Favorites” and “My First Menu”. I’m going to add this recipe to my own menu I created, “To Try”.

From there, the Meal Planner automatically creates a convenient grocery list you can take along with to help you prepare for your next shopping trip. You can easily print or email the list to take with you on the go and if you are in certain select areas, you can even have your groceries delivered right to your door.

One of the most helpful features of the Meal Planner is the support you receive from the coaches. Check out the little chat icon in the bottom, right-hand corner. You can reach out to food coaches there for help. They normally reply pretty quickly, but if they are away at the moment, they usually reply within 24 hours.

I asked one of the food coaches yesterday if these recipes where diabetic friendly. She linked me to a very informative article about the topic. I really enjoy this feature of the Meal Planner!

Another great feature of the Meal Planner is the “My Preferences” panel. Click on the 3 vertical lines in the top, right-hand corner. Click on the “My Preferences” tap. From there you can customize and change your options based on your household size, your cooking skills, allergies, and what kitchen equipment you have. You can even try out the meal plan that Miss. B herself is using! To access her meal plan click on “Meal Plan Type” within the “My Preferences” tab. Click “The 22 Day Revolution” and then click “Save”.
