The 3 Lies That Kept Me Stuck in Unhealthy Habits and Why I Created the

PB3 Challenge For You.

Lie #1  Meal Prep takes hours!

It doesn't have to take 6 hours on a Sunday, it shouldn't even take 2 hours.  My time-saving strategies  will allow you to meal prep and get on with your day!

Lie #2  I need a Culinary degree

I never enjoyed cooking and wasn't really good at it either. Simple recipes, with a few key ingredients, changed everything.  Step by step videos allow me to be your guide in the kitchen. 

Lie #3  My Kids won't eat it

Reducing the addiction to processed and sugar-laden foods is a real struggle.  If I can do it, you can too.  With my best tips and tricks your kids will be loving food that is actually good for them.

Can you relate to these Moms?...
  • You wish you had more time to meal prep & cook healthier meals

  • ​You feel guilty every time you go through the drive-through instead of making a home-cooked dinner

  • You're overwhelmed and stressed from trying to figure out what you should or shouldn't be feeding yourself and your kids

  • You lack confidence and know-how when it comes to cooking for your family

  • ​Your child's diet consists of chicken fingers, mac & cheese and pizza.

  • You worry about some of your chid's recurring "issues" and know there is a deeper problem 

  • You've tried allll the fads, but nothing sticks

  • You want more energy and are tired of feeling tired

If you’re going through this right now, I’m here to tell you:

 

It's not your fault and you are not alone.

 

Me, and so many moms like you, have been through a similar struggle.

 

The good news is that there is light at the end of the tunnel.

 

I've been where you are right now and I can help.

Meet Jen

My name is Jen Rivas and I'm a mother to three amazing little girls.

 

I help busy moms raise healthy kids without gluten, dairy & refined sugar.  All while saving you tons of time & stress.

 

I have taken all my knowledge, expertise and experience and I am ready to share it with moms like you. 

 

I CAN help you...I WILL help you!

 

I will be there every step of the way to help guide you through the transition and make it seem so easy and doable!

 

I’m not a trained chef. In fact, I never really enjoyed cooking until it became a necessity for me after my daughter's diagnosis.  

 

Being determined, it took me hundreds of hours in the kitchen, on Pinterest, reading cookbooks...and I have a long list of epic fails to prove it!  But as I peeled back the onion on nutrition, dealing with picky eaters and learning how to infuse flavor into dishes with simple and whole ingredients, it all started to make sense.  

Years later, I have a family of 5 that actually LOVE the dishes I make.  I have a totally new appreciation and passion for cooking and for the food that we put on our plates.

 

I believe in the power of a heavy plant based lifestyle, however, I also believe that there is no "one-size fits all" journey to optimal health.  I take a much more flexible and open-minded approach for my family and yours.

 

This challenge isn't about converting you to 100% plant based, but instead to show you how easy, delicious and life changing eating a more plant based diet can be.   

I want to introduce you to the

PB3 (Plant Based for 3 weeks) Challenge!

3 weeks of delicious, clean, plant based & gluten free meals along with everything you need to be successful. 

 

 Your own personal health coach (me, Jen Rivas!), meal plans, recipes, meal prep videos and guides, a supportive community and so much more.

Imagine how it would feel to experience

all of this and more:

  • Feel more confident and comfortable in the kitchen and know what foods make you and your family feel better and more energetic!

  • Save money with an easy to follow shopping list that focuses on little to no food waste!

  • Stop relying on fast food to get you through the week, but instead have a healthy meal on the table in minutes! 

  • You only have to cook one meal for the whole family and they love it! 

  • ​You have the ability to cook a variety of meals which are new and exciting for you and your kids. You're not stuck in a rut of the same old-same old.

  • No more fights or negotiations with your kids to finish the food on their plate, instead they are always asking for more!

  • Processed foods and sugars are no longer a regular part of your family's diet!

  • Your kids live a healthy, vibrant life with less stomach pains, wild mood swings and hyperactivity!

  • ​Planning & prepping your family's meals is something you actually look forward to and takes only a short amount of time (about an hour a week)!

This can be YOUR reality when you sign up for the

PB3 Challenge!

My Guarantee

I have poured my heart and soul into the PB3 Challenge. I believe in it completely -- so much so that I would recommend it to all my family, friends and strangers in the grocery line.
 

That’s why I offer a rock-solid 21-Day Guarantee. No questions asked. If you are unhappy or unsatisfied with the PB3 Challenge for any reason, I’ll refund your money.

All I ask is that you complete the full 3 weeks of the challenge, including making the meals and attend one Live Q&A.
 

The Choice is Yours

1)  You can continue to figure it out on your own and hope you get it right. 

Just keep doing what you are doing. Allow things to be as they are. 

 

But here's my question to you- If your life, health, and eating habits are completely the same in 6 months would you be ok with that?  After all, if nothing changes...then nothing changes, right?

 

There is also a chance your situation could get worse. 

 

2)  You can scour the internet for free information and figure this out yourself.  It's possible because I took this route, but it may take years.

 

3)  You can follow the path of someone who has done this before and has made all the mistakes you are going to make.  I can see the pitfalls ahead and redirect you on the right path to success.

 

I’m pretty sure I know which one of these options will be sure to put a smile on your face ;-)

add common obj's and faqs

1.

Do I have to be 100% plant based throughout this entire challenge?

This is what sets this challenge apart from so many others.  There is no such thing as failure!  This challenge is all about showing you how easy and delicious it can be to eat more plants on the daily. This challenge will meet you wherever you're at in your health journey.

3.

I'm so busy.  How much time will this require?

Girl, I hear you!  This is a common concern of most moms today, so you're not alone.  You'll be most successful in this challenge if you can carve out just 1 to 2 hours a week to get the bulk of the meal prep done.  This will set you up for the entire week and your meals will come together in minutes!  

5.

We have food allergies.  Does your challenge contain other common food allergens?

In addition to being entirely gluten free (I use brown rice pasta in all the pasta dishes), this challenge is also void of dairy, eggs, peanuts, shellfish, and fish.  And while some dishes contain soy and tree nuts, I supply you with tasty alternatives or substitutions.

7.

What if I don't have a Facebook account?

If you are not on Facebook you can email me at plantbasedexplorer@gmail.com and I will get back to you within 24 hours. 

9.

I'm not a great cook.  How will this work for me?

I've got you covered!  Not only do I give you the printable written version of all the materials, but you will also get video tutorials of ALL the weekly meal preps and almost all the recipes for each week.  It's like having me in your kitchen guiding you along. 

11.

I've heard switching to plant based causes "digestive issues" after the first few days.  Will that happen to me?

First, let me assure you that this is totally normal.  You see, we don't get a lot of fiber when eating the Standard American Diet, so when we switch to eating a fiber-rich plant based diet, your gut can sometimes, well, get a little overactive.  If you experience this, simply ease up on the beans you're eating and make sure you are drinking LOTS of water!

2.

My husband and kids are meat eaters, they will never eat this!  What would you suggest?

All I can say is you'll never know until you try.  My husband felt the same way, but he LOVED what I was making and some of his favorite meals are plant based now.  It's also important to remember (see #1) that it's not an "all or nothing" program.  Still doubtful, check out some of the testimonials above.

4.

What exactly is plant based?  And will I be getting all the protein, calcium and other nutrients I need?

Great question!  Plant based simply means that there are no animal products or animal by-products in any of the meals (i.e. meat, eggs, milk, yogurt, cheese, etc).  Contrary to many myths, a balanced plant based lifestyle gives you ample protein, calcium and more then enough vitamins and minerals. 

6.

Where would I ask a question if I'm stuck or need some help? 

If you want immediate feedback, the interactive, Facebook group is AMAZING!  It's a secret group only accessible to those in the challenge and it's a great place to stay motivated and excited about your progress.  The more you interact, the more successful you'll be!  So don't be shy...get in there lady!

8.

How many people does this challenge feed? 

The meal plans and shopping lists that you will be provided will feed an average of 3-4 people.  You can easily make the adjustments needed for your family. 

10.

Plant based meals can sometimes be high in carbs.  What if I'm trying to reduce my carb intake?

This is an easy fix.  For rice, you can simply swap out for cauliflower rice or do a mixture of the two and for the pasta, some of my favorites substitutions are spaghetti squash or spiraled zucchini (aka zoodles).

12.

What happens after the 21 days?  Does all this stuff disappear?

Come on girl, would I do that to you?!  You have access to all this information...meal plans, videos, everything, for as long as you want it...like forever!  So no need to worry about it going anywhere.
