“New Year, New You“ Meal Plan – week 4

Welcome to 2015!! This new year represents a new start, a fresh chance to really get going on your health and fitness goals. New years are a fresh chance to really get moving on changing how you live your life to make it healthier, happier and more effective. This Heroic Health & Well-Being meal plan has guided you through an entire month of eating healthier… how do you feel? How do you look? This is a BIG accomplishment! One that should be celebrated! But with one last week of eating and living healthy to go, we simply cannot fall off the wagon just yet…..

All we have left is the fourth and final week’s worth of healthy meals to get through! Remember: any and all of these dishes are flexible and can be substituted for another dish of relatively similar nutritional value.
