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.

A Smoothie to Help You Kick the Candy to the Curb

Easter is right around the corner and images of pastel colored eggs, chocolates or sugary treats are front and center! This year try a pastel colored yummy, nutritious smoothie as a great energizing snack or light meal. This smoothie tastes a bit sweet but because of all of the fiber-full fruits and veggies it can actually help to curb sweet cravings.

A 5-Ingredient Dish to Make Dinner Simple

Serve this super simple tasty dish as an addition to a healthy meal, or even as a meal by itself. The chickpeas are a good source of plant-based protein as well as a source of iron, folate, potassium, and fiber. When paired with the garlic, tomatoes and spinach, the garbanzo beans are tasty and flavorful.

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.

Victoria Moran’s Raw Shangri-La Soup

Victoria Moran shares a raw soup recipe that is named for the legendary land of eternal youth. She says she has seen a high-raw, plant-based diet attribute to youthfulness in many people and a raw soup is an excellent way to enjoy both. Enjoy the recipe.

Berry Oats & Goji Spring Smoothie

This refreshing spring smoothie is light, tasty, and packed with nutrients. The base of fresh or frozen berries provides a good source of vitamin C and antioxidants, while the flax and hemp add healthy protein, healthy fat, and fiber. Antioxidant-rich goji berries are also a highlight of this smoothie and adds a nice crunch as the garnish. This smoothie makes for a great breakfast, or post-workout recovery drink as it provides extra protein and carbohydrates for muscle repair. For added flavor try garnishing with cinnamon!

Brazil Nut Chai Tea Latte

Masala Chai is a traditional South Asian tea composed of spices that have a warming effect within the body. These spices are prized in Eastern medicine for their ability to increase circulation, fight disease and promote overall health. This vegan version of a Chai Tea Latte is a healthy, warming, and a delicious treat.

Goji Sunshine Salad (Ready in 5 minutes!)

Fresh salads are a staple of warmer weather, and with the arrival of spring and the approaching summer season, there’s nothing better than a fast, fresh salad for lunch or dinner. The ingredients in this salad came fresh from a local farmers market, which means that they are less likely to contain dangerous pesticides and are likely to contain more nutrients. Enjoy this light and easy recipe.

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.
