Gradually add more whole plant foods into your diet, crowding out less nutritious fare
Break old food addictions and establish new habits
Translate favorite recipes to create delicious, nourishing meals
Reshape your food environment (at home, at work, and on the go) to make healthy eating a no-brainer
Cultivate relationships that celebrate and support your new lifestyle

Especially valuable are directions for navigating roadblocks.
