Review and Giveaway: 21- Day Vegan Blueprint

Review and Giveaway: 21- Day Vegan Blueprint

I didn’t decide to go vegan overnight.  It took me a while to get here.  I did a lot of reading, books and blogs mostly, and I read a lot of labels.  I had already been a vegetarian for almost 20 years, so I started with eliminating eggs.  Next came milk and butter, then cheese, and finally yogurt.  It took me over a year to make the switch completely.

I don’t know if I would have done it any other way.  I do know that over that period I spent a lot of money buying things that I thought I should try or like.  And I spent a lot of time finding answers to questions that I had.  It would have been nice to have a coach to answer my questions and to hold my hand as I made my transition to a cruelty-free lifestyle.

Picture

Jenné Claiborne, also knows as The Nourishing Vegan, is a New York vegan cooking instructor, personal chef and health coach.  Jenné created the 21-Day Vegan Blueprint, an on-line coaching program to help you become a healthy vegan.  

For $77, you have access to meal plans, a shopping list, recipes, audio recordings and videos.  You can also join a private Facebook group, so you can share your experience with others, and participate in live calls for direct contact with Jenné.  And you’ll receive a list of resources (books, websites and blogs), tips on how to make the transition and how to tell others about your new lifestyle.  There is even a fact sheet on soy and a guide to vegan cheese.

What will you eat?  Sweet potato felafel, chickpea curry, yummy salads, peach crumble, smoothies (are you hungry yet?), and other healthy foods.  None of the recipes have more than 10 ingredients.  Cooking videos are also included.

Can you change in 21 days?  Maybe, maybe not.  But Jenné  herself admits that she took it slow.  Her plan is designed to help you make the move at your own pace and she’s there to guide you.  As Jenné  says, she’s “got your back.”  I sure would have liked to hear that when I was making my journey!

 We’re giving away a free 21-Day Vegan Blueprint program to one lucky Chic Vegan winner! Follow the instructions below to enter. Contest ends at midnight EST on January 31st. Good luck!

    Because I love animals, and I will do anything to show that.

    I would love to learn to cook more easy meals! My nutrition has been sliding since having a baby and having less time in the kitchen.

    I’m looking for meal plans accompanied by simple recipes.

    I care too much about animals to continue to eat them. And what the food animals do to the environment is just too much

    I want to improve my PLANT-BASED diet.

    I’ve been vegan for a long time, but I have found myself not eating so healthily recently. I could definitely use a little encouragement!

    Someone else will win the Vegan Blueprint; I’m not entering because I don’t need it. I’ve been successfully and vibrantly vegan for decades. I have heard great things about Jenne. Health and peace.

    I would LOVE to try a blueprint cleanse! I’ve read a ton about them. I am getting married in a few short months and would love to look and feel my best for my wedding day – and honeymoon!

    I’m always interested in learning more about veganism and how I can make my diet healthier!

    Im transitioning from vegetarian and researching vegan diet.

  17. Greene January 28, 2014 at 7:45 am -

    I would like to learn more about becoming vegan. I like to cook but often do not know how to go about making something other than our regular go to meals which has put us in a rut.

    I’ve been vegetarian since birth and have dabbled with veganism before, but starting January 1st of this year, I just went full-fledged vegan. Would love more info to help me transition since I’m just getting started. :)

    I need to get a better grip of my life and health.

  20. Robyn January 31, 2014 at 8:09 pm -

    I need the inspiration this would aid me in taking the leap from veg head to vegan head :-)

  21. yiveth January 31, 2014 at 8:14 pm -

    I want my kids to under stand why we have transitioned into vegan lifestyle… and I need help in the kitchen!!

  22. Jessica medina January 31, 2014 at 8:30 pm -

    I would like to try the vegan blueprint because I’ve been vegan for over a year now and could really use the help to actually eat healthier and lose weight. I’ve been basically stuck preparing the same meals over and over and would like to be pushed out of my comfort zone.

  23. Nadia Amiel January 31, 2014 at 11:08 pm -

    Transitioning is very difficult and I think your plan would be an enormous help to stay focused and keep me on track.

  24. Kelsey Leingang January 31, 2014 at 11:18 pm -

    It would definitely be a useful tool to switch to veganism!

    Great giveaway. This sounds like a fantastic program. Jenne is the picture of health and beauty, and who doesn’t want to learn from someone who emulates the lifestyle!

    Hi, chic vegans!
    Ahh, I am so sorry to have missed the giveaway:( For the past few weeks, I have been struggling with keeping myself focused on eating clean and healthy. Jenne’s programme sounds fantastic and I am sure it would have been of great benefit to me. She is such an inspirational person! Nevertheless, congratulations to the winner!:) These days, I am trying to make veganism fun and include all my family members in the process too! There were times when they were frowning upon my wannabe-vegan attempts at cooking and baking, but I am starting to become all the more confident in my newly acquired craft and have been getting lots of compliments! Guess where I get most of my recipes! What works for me in my lazy mode is dining out. This way I look forward to a nice meal and don’t break my resolutions! Usually at Friday nights, I treat myself and my folks to a nice vegan dinner at some of my favourite spots in the city and snaffle a bit of inspiration when it comes to new flavours, textures and the way the dish is presented. A treat and education at the same time sounds like a win-win to me! Anyway, keep positive and good luck with staying focused. Go, vegan!:)
