Addiction to junk food has blocked our sensitivity and appreciation for real food. Take 30 days to wipe the slate clean and rewire your tastebuds by reintroducing simple foods back in the right way. You'll save boatloads of time and money, too.

Our taste buds have been under assault by junk food and mindless eating. Eating mindfully means chewing, tasting, and savoring the flavors and textures in every bite.
Yes. We're serious. Every day after that you add another food.
No way. That would be crazy. By day 30 you'll have 33 foods reintroduced. Eat whatever you want.
Correct, no salads. No dressing. You'll actually taste lettuce for the first time. It has a crisp crunch with a subtle yet refreshing taste. And if you were also wondering, that means no juices, smoothies, soups, or sandwiches, either.
Legumes, nuts, and seeds. Things like like quinoa and kaniwa are ok too. The idea here is not to OD on carbs and add some protein/fats in.
Root veggies are veggies. If it grows from the ground, you're fine. Sweet potatoes, white potatoes, squashes—all good in their plain cooked form.
If it's your birthday and you want to treat yourself to the more carb-heavy whole barley, whole oats, wild rice, or brown rice that is ok. No flours though, so if you're gonna have any wheat, it's gotta be plain cooked wheat berries.
Whatever you do after 30 days is up to you. For the 30 days we recommend sticking to the plant-based approach, but if you love your meat/chicken/fish/eggs/milk—go for it. But remember, it's still gotta be plain. Chicken has got to look like a cooked chicken. Meat has gotta be clean cut. No deli food. Milk is just plain milk, no milk-derived products like cheese or butter.
Ask yourself if the food looks and tastes like the food right when it was first picked from the farm. If it looks or tastes different, avoid it. Otherwise, enjoy however much of it you want.
This website is a reflection of your new diet: simple. Leave out the junk. No gimmicks. Life is beautiful when simple.
