Marco Borges and His 22-Day Revolution

After a summer of over-indulgence—long nights with a lot of rosé, more than our fair share of lobster rolls—we’ve been trying to get back on a more virtuous path. Enter Marco Borges, the celebrated exercise physiologist and personal trainer who is best known for his 22-Day Nutritional Challenge (which we’ve written about before). His plant-based meal and exercise plan promises to help you lose up to 22 pounds in 22 days, as it’s founded on the principle that it takes 21 days to break bad habits and form new ones. He has a brand-new, comprehensive book on the concept, full of easy vegan, gluten-free, and soy-free recipes. We tried out four—all simple to make and quite tasty.
