Rawk out here too...

AS SEEN IN

Fun fact: Plant-based eaters are 30 pounds lighter, on average, than meat eaters  


It’s time we come back to the simpler times. When nature was our food source and "farmacy". When food was grown, rather than made in a factory.

Did you know... Just by decreasing the amount of meat and dairy AND increasing the amount of fresh fruits and veggies you consume each day, you can naturally:  

• Decrease risk of diabetes by 78%
• Reduce your risk of a heart attack by 32%
• Decrease your chance of high blood pressure by 55%
• Lose weight while eating tasty food throughout the day

A Whole Foods Plant-Based Diet naturally Heals the Body

THE RESULTS DON'T LIE....

Rawk the Year takes a realistic approach to plant-based wellness while still keeping our sanity #1.

We believe that it's okay to drink a green smoothie... and later on drive thru Taco Bell or Starbucks... because we do it too.

Yet we also believe in progress and know what it takes to feel like your best self. It takes a successful program that provides a clear roadmap, lifts one another up and celebrates the power of community & plants.

Fill your body with the most nourishing, delicious foods to reset your cravings, kick start your weight loss journey and be naturally energized.

Oh, kale yeah!

This seven day reset is just what a body and soul needs. I loved the complete organization of this one. Shopping, easy recipes, and motivation to keep you going. The day after I finished, several people commented that my skin was glowing.

“Shopping, easy recipes, and motivation!”
- Amy Ellis

I have been struggling to keep up with my family and work commitments, and slowly gaining weight. With Thrive, I lost 11.5 pounds in 7 days and continued to lose for the rest of the month too. I have hope again!

“I lost 11.5 pounds in 7 days!”
Transform your life with the power of plant-based foods. We'll show you how to shop, prep, cook, blend & enjoy the entire process!
RAWK THE YEAR
Oh, kale yeah!
- Jen Hansard

Peace, love & leafy greens,

When we fuel our body with foods that naturally energize & nourish us—we're unstoppable!

As a mom with two active kids, a backyard farm, running a plant-based wellness company, and training for the Grand Canyon 47-mile run... I can't cook dinner 5 nights a week and stay sane.

Don't get me wrong, I looooove my daily green smoothies, plant-based snacks & meals that fuel me throughout the day. Yet I'd pick doing something fun with family over the kitchen any day.

Yet I also know how vital it is for us to eat more plants AND model healthy eating for our kids. 

I've combined a plant-based lifestyle with the reality of parenthood through customizable weekly meal plans, seasonal cleanses and mini challenges to push you farther. That's how Rawk the Year began AND why it's been so successful for myself and hundreds of other rawkstars.

"I can't cook dinner 5 nights a week and stay sane... it's nearly impossible."

Why I LOVE
RAWK THE YEAR

I hope you give Rawk the Year the chance to transform your life.

Rawk the Year

$19/month

Weekly meal plans, monthly challenges, seasonal cleanses and accountability will rawk your world!

PLANT-BASED LIFESTYLE

*This is a monthly membership program aimed at helping you embrace a plant-based lifestyle. If you decide you don't like it, simply cancel and you will not be charged again.

There are three main things that come with Rawk the Year (along with additional bonus items each month):

Seasonal cleanses and resets: You'll have access to that season's cleanse/reset so you can give your body a fresh start. These plans come with meal plans, recipes, shopping lists, prep guides... everything you need to rawk it!

Weekly meal plans: These plans are curated from our absolute BEST recipes from our website, published books, cleanses, and other products. You'll also receive brand-new recipes that have not appeared in anywhere else. Each weekly plan includes: 3 smoothie recipes, 3 snack recipes, and 3 meal recipes. It also includes a shopping list, prep guide, meal plan, and images of each recipe (so you can know what you're aiming to make)!

Accountability: You get access to a private online group that's helpful for accountability, encouragement, and sharing ideas. You'll also get opportunities to Q+A with our team, along with email reminders to keep you moving forward with your goals.

BONUS ITEMS: We do giveaways, a quarterly digital magazine, interviews with experts in related fields (self care, digestion, sleep, etc.), and so much more!

1. What comes with Rawk the Year?


Rawk the Year is: 100% PLANT-BASED, GLUTEN-FREE, DAIRY-FREE

Let me start by saying this: we aren't against eating meat. We sometimes enjoy it ourselves. However, these plans are designed to be 100% plant-based. You can expect lots of fruits, vegetables, whole grains, nuts and seeds. If you'd like to add some dairy to a meal (e.g. cheese), then go for it! If you're planning on cooking these recipes with your meat-eating spouse, then simply add some!

My hope is that these meal plans + cleanses will be something you can ACHEIVE every single week... and that you'll feel better and look better as a result. So, our plans are created with a plant-based mindset, but feel free to adapt to your lifestyle.


2. What kind of recipes are included?


The total cost is $19/month. There are no yearly contracts or extra fees, so you can cancel at any time if you're not enjoying the seasonal cleanses (which cost $49 when purchased separately), weekly meal plans, accountability, and the seasonal magazines with challenges, guest articles, and more.

This is THE MOST affordable way to get all of our seasonal cleanse products along with actionable plans that include the very best recipes from ALL of our products (as well as new, exclusive recipes that aren't featured anywhere else). And yes— you can cancel at any time if you decide this isn't right for you... but we think you're gonna fall in love!

3. How much does it cost?

Absolutely not! That's the beauty of Rawk the Year. Each season kicks off with one of our cleanse/reset products, and they're INCLUDED with your monthly membership. If you're ready to rawk the Fresh Start Spring Cleanse, then the most affordable option is to join Rawk the Year. You can also purchase the cleanse as a standalone product (does not include private online group support). 


4. Do I have to pay extra for the SEASONAL CleanseS?


Yes! These plans are made for two people in mind, but are easily adaptable for just one person.. or more people, too. Our meal plans will most likely introduce some new flavors and ingredients to your kiddos, yet the recipes are so delicious that I bet they'll learn to love them quickly! Our plans include the best of the best recipes that hopefully your whole family will enjoy.

5. Can my whole family participate?



We kick off every season of Rawk the Year with a cleanse/reset program. Yet you don't HAVE to go through the complete program. You have the choice of doing our Fresh Start Cleanses (spring + autumn) and Thrive Resets (summer + winter), OR you can choose to do our normal meal plans during these weeks (3 meals, 3 snacks, 3 smoothies). Our promise is to deliver 52 meal plans throughout the entire year, and we won't stop during LIVE cleanse + reset periods.

6. If I don't want to do the cleanse, what are my options?


We want this to be as achievable as possible for you. So, we've picked simple recipes that taste amazing for our meal plans. You don't have to worry about hours of prepping and spending your evenings in the kitchen. We also try our best to make our shopping lists affordable by selecting recipes with similar ingredients each week.

Some of our recipes in our published books and other products can have a few exta steps. That's how plant-based eating can occassionally be. However, the recipes in this meal plan have been simplified without sacrificing their delicious-ness. We include shortcuts to save prep + cooking time, because we want this to become a lifestyle that you enjoy! Plus, who wants to do extra dishes?


7. How difficult are the recipes to make?



Don't worry, I (Jen) am not a great cook either... by the time I finished college I knew how to make a whopping three-whole recipes (bean burritos, pancakes, and quesadillas). That's why we made sure that our recipes are very clear + concise. We include hacks and prep tips in each meal plan to make your time in the kitchen go down instead of up. If you're looking to make 5-minute meals every night of the week, then this program may not be for you. But if you're trying to find ways to include more nutritious foods that will fuel your active life, then you can defintely do our plans! And don't worry, we don't expect you to make a home-cooked, gourmet feast every night of the week. We've left space in the plans for you to order out, use leftovers, or even heat up a box of macaroni if you get too busy :-)

8. I'm not a great cook, will this meal plan work for me?




This plan was made for YOU! There may be some who wish our plans had recipes mapped out for every meal of every day. If that's what you're looking for, then you can find those all over the world wide web... but you won't find them here. Our meal plans are designed for people with an active lifestyle (shuttling kids, working long hours, chasing dreams). That's why we use the 3-3-3 system (3 meals, 3 snacks, 3 smoothies). Committing to making a meal in your kitchen three nights a week might sound like a lot, but you can do it... and your body + mind will thank you for it later! Prepping nutrient-dense snacks to take to work (or your kids events) can help you when you're craving a frappuccino or a pastry—they can even work as a small lunch in a pinch! Blending three smoothies a week to drink for breakfast (or mid-morning snack) will give your body a much-needed energy boost, along with delivering high levels of fiber, protein, and vitamins.

Plus, we've included prep tips and hacks to make these plans efficient, effective, and achievable!


9. I have a crazy busy schedule, is this realistic for me?

If you join now, the monthly cost is just $19/month. Yet this could increase as we add more features. Yet you will be locked in at the price you join at.

Yes! But they don't have to, if they're not interested. These plans are made with multiple people in mind, but are easily adaptable for just one person, too. Our meal plans will most likely introduce some new flavors and ingredients to your kiddos, yet the recipes are so delicious that I bet they'll learn to love them quickly! Our plans include the best of the best recipes that hopefully your whole family will enjoy.
