How do Forks Meal Planner and the New Year Reset work together?

Updated by Steven Todd Smith

Welcome to your New Year Reset! Whether you're a longtime Forks Meal Planner susbcriber or a newbie, the New Year Reset is a chance to recommit to healthy plant-based eating and connect with others who are doing the same.

This free two-week eating plan works hand-in-hand with your Forks Meal Planner, helping you to start the new year on an empowered, inspired, and deliciously convenient path.

You'll receive a six-part, spam-free email series between filled with inspiring and educational content, including tips for:

  • a fridge and pantry makeover
  • losing weight on a plant-based diet
  • making healthy habits stick
  • and more!

Your Forks Meal Planner will feature two weeks of New Year Reset Featured meal plans, specially curated to focus on our easiest and tastiest recipes. These meal plans can only be viewed via web, though they can be saved as Custom Plans for your mobile app viewing and use. Please note: Custom Plans require a premium subscription for mobile app use.

Along with these menus, you'll be supported by an exclusive meal prep tutorial from Caryn Dugan, founder of the Center of Plant-Based Living in St. Louis (and administrator of the Forks Meal Planner Subscriber Community Group on Facebook).

To get more familiar with your FMP (or sneak in a handy refresher about features and free trial vs. premium offerings), please check out the Forks Meal Planner Overview.

The FMP Subscriber Group and Forks Over Knives Official Plant-Based Group will be your supportive community forums, where you can share meal photos & meal planning suggestions, ask questions, and connect with other folks who are starting their plant-based journeys.

As you follow along, we encourage you to reach out with questions and to let us know about successes and challenges experienced! You can connect with us anytime via your account messenger or email (
