Smart Sweet: Mini Coconut Cookies

Craving something sweet? This recipe is super easy, vegan, gluten-free and dairy-free. If you aren’t on a Reboot, this treat is an ideal dessert! It’s also nut and allergy free so they are a great snack for little and big kids. This is a small recipe but it can easily be doubled and feel free to add nuts, seeds, cacao or chopped dried fruit to add extra flavour.

Wish Upon a Watermelon Juice

In Australia, summer is coming to an end so this is a lovely sweet end-of-season juice. And for the northern hemisphere, your warm weather is on it’s way so this is a great juice you can enjoy all season long. The celery tones down the sweetness of this juice while adding extra electrolytes. This juice is high in lycopene, the more ripe the watermelon and the darker the flesh the higher the content of this carotenoid lycopene.

Vegan, Noodle-Free Alfredo Zucchini Pasta

This is a vegan take on an alfredo pasta! It still has the rich creamy cheesy texture of a typical alfredo with the nice delicate taste but half the calories and rich in plant-based nutrients. This thick creamy sauce can be added to any pasta of your choice although I made this with zucchini pasta to further increase your vegetable intake while making it a light meal. Enjoy this tonight for your Meatless Monday meal, or any night of the week.

Smart Sweet: Mixed Berry & Banana Chia Pudding

Chia seeds are 38% fibre, 16% protein and 47% fat while 17% being omega 3 fatty acids. They are also an excellent source of calcium. So enjoy these beauties any time of day as a breakfast or a little something sweet at the end of a long day.

9 Rebooting Symptoms & Why You Get Them

Many people will experience what is commonly known as ‘detoxification symptoms’ in the initial stages of the Reboot. This can occur from 1 to 3 days and up to 2 weeks, and is very dependent on many variables of your lifestyle, but the plus side is you can combat these symptoms. Learn what those symptoms are and why you might get them!

Green Pear & Walnut Smoothie

This is a take on one of my favourite salads! I always love to add one type of fruit and one type of nut into my salads such as strawberries, mangoes, apples or pears with almonds, macadamias, walnuts or any other variety you desire, this gives it great flavour and texture and mixes it up and makes for a more interesting tasty salad or in this case a great smoothie.

Kick Bad Habits to Keep Your Kidneys Healthy

March has been designated the National Kidney Month to raise awareness about the prevention and early detection of kidney disease. In the U.S. kidney disease is the 9th leading cause of death with more than 20 million people are suffering with chronic kidney disease (CKD). Find out what helps prevent this prevalent disease.

Smart Sweet: Vegan Chocolate Chip Ice Cream

Vegan ice cream is music to my ears, and it’s super easy, delicious and a great chocolate fix! This is my favourite dairy free chocolate recipe. I used organic brown rice malt syrup in this recipe because rice syrup has a lower sugar content than honey or maple syrup so it doesn’t make it overly sweet and has a very mild flavour but maple syrup and honey will also work nicely. If you miss chocolate ice cream at all you won’t miss it anymore.

Make Your Own Activated Nuts

The first time I tried activated nuts I fell in love! They taste sweet, are softer to eat, and are more easily digested due to the activation process. Soaking the nuts then dehydrating them at a very low temperature may reduce some of the natural phytates that are present in nuts which may enable easier absorption of the minerals and vitamins that are present in nuts. Give them a try!

Dark & Stormy Juice

I was loving the look of the red kale in the markets so I had to grab a bunch to juice and cook with this week. Kale and other cabbage family vegetables contain a naturally occurring compound called sulforaphane which has potent anti-cancer properties and it also aids in liver detoxification pathways. Kale is an excellent source of minerals, vitamin A, K and anti-oxidants. Enjoy!
