I Tried A Nutrition Reset

I did the 3-Day Nutrition Reset from our friends at Kindra, this how it went!

The reset focuses on nutrient dense foods to help you boost energy levels, improve digestion, and just feel better!‍

I recently spent a month traveling (and eating) my way across Europe. Not joking: I drank wine at both lunch and dinner more often than not, and ate things like pastries and cheese with some regularity. These are things I’d never do at home (I swear!), so I’m way overdue for a total nutrition re-set. 

Lucky for me our friends at Kindra offer just that, a nutrition re-set plan. It’s my favorite “cleanse” I’ve tried so far, just three days, and designed entirely to help women re-focus their health and wellness goals. Think of it as a jumpstart to get you back to remembering what’s good for you — both what feels good and what you know your body really needs.

Needless to say, the basic principles  of the plan are no fried foods, no gluten, no alcohol, and no added sugars. Instead the reset focuses on nutrient dense foods to help you boost energy levels, improve digestion, and just feel better!

How it Works

Once you sign up you get a 3-day meal plan with a shopping list, and recipes for breakfast, lunch, snack, dinner and a tea pairing. You do have to do the shopping and cooking yourself, but I found the recipes to be totally manageable. And while I’m an omnivore myself (although I eat almost no dairy and hardly ever eat red meat) I did notice that each recipe has modification options for vegans and vegetarians. 

You’re also encouraged to keep a food journal, which I find is another great tool when trying to rein things in. Nothing better than accountability!

My First Impressions 

  1. I love that the program is just three days long! It can be daunting and frankly unrealistic to commit to several weeks of structured eating with no leeway at all, but this plan is 100% doable, and feels long enough to interrupt unhealthy eating patterns and remind me what I know is true: eating well just makes me feel better! 
  1. The recipes are totally delicious and full of foods (lean proteins and veggies) that I already know make me feel great. 
  1. I can food journal for three days but not more. I know it’s a good idea for great accountability, but it feels too neurotic for me to keep up. 

My Favorite Meals: 

Normally I have to drink hot water with lemon all day long…this is a must to help me feel like I’m on a path to pure living. When that gets boring, I make some green or mint tea. Per Kindra’s recommendation I also tried lemon-ginger tea, which I will be adding to my regular routine! 

When I’m eating and feeling my best I’m very focused on getting a lot of protein in at every meal, plus plenty of calcium and fiber. Without further ado, here are my favorite options from the Nutrition Reset. 

Breakfast: Creamy Apple Pie Smoothie

I never think to add apples to my smoothies, but this was delicious, filling, and felt like a treat!  I will definitely be making it again. 

Lunch: Radicchio and Kale Chopped Salad

I feel like I’ve been missing out on homemade dressing, which was surprisingly simple to make! And the hardboiled eggs added the midday protein kick I was craving. 

Dinner: Roasted Chicken, Apple, and Kale Salad

Clearly I’m on a salad kick! This one was the final recipe in the reset; it was delicious, filling, and only requires one pan.

Snack: Celery and Hummus

I’m a fan of simple, traditional hummus and already had some on hand.

Takeaways

This reset plan was easy to follow and, dare I say it - kind of fun! I’m feeling better than I did at the beginning of the week and inspired to forage ahead cooking at home and eating healthy. I’d recommend it to anyone who feels like they’re in a food-rut.
