Healthy Breakfast: Nut-Berry Breakfast Quinoa

Breakfast is my favourite meal, and I never, ever, go without it. For me, breakfast is always nutritious and healthy, it jump-starts my metabolism, and it’s the fuel that gets me going so I can face the day ahead. After sleeping and not eating for about 10 hours, your body needs sustenance and is ready to be refueled. Refuel with this healthy quinoa breakfast dish. Get the recipe.

Most mornings I have quinoa porridge and I always mix between quinoa and chia, quinoa and oats, or quinoa and polenta. Quinoa, pronounced keen-wah, is a grain-like seed. Quinoa is complete protein food, which means it includes all of the eight essential amino acids that are needed for growth and repair. It is a complex carbohydrate, high in vitamins and minerals, and gluten free. Sometimes I use quinoa flakes and other times I use the traditional quinoa seed. It is so very easy and quick to do, plus it is jam-packed with nutrition!

In the Reboot Kitchen: The Pear-fect Green

I always love when I receive forelle pears in my organic box delivery. They are so pretty and perfect looking and since I recently had a heap delivered I thought I would try them in my next juice. If forelle pears aren’t available to you, you can use any variety. Get the recipe…

Smart Sweet: Healthy Anzac Biscuits

It was Anzac day today in Australia and New Zealand which is a National holiday (yippee to that!) of remembrance that commemorates all Australians and New Zealanders who served and died in war. Hundreds of thousands get up and watch the dawn service where marches and horns are played in the early morning silence. Many foods are enjoyed and the classic is the good old Anzac biscuit. I wanted to cook a healthier version so here they are!

In the Reboot Kitchen: Splash of Sun

Drink up the sun’s rays with this fresh, fast and simple juice that’s sure to please the whole family (my 2 sons snagged all the juice after our photo shoot!). Full of nutrients that promote glowing skin like vitamin C rich oranges and beta-carotene packed carrots, this juice may also help ease inflammation related arthritis symptoms.

After School Snack: Rainbow Hummus

We love hummus! It’s packed with fiber, protein, calcium, magnesium and healthy fats. We pumped up our hummus even more with fresh veggies like carrots, beets, and asparagus – not only making it colorful but fun to eat! We created a Roasted Carrot, Beautiful Beet and Mellow Asparagus Hummus.

Written by Claire Georgiou, Reboot Naturopath, B.HSc ND

When you're craving a rich creamy vegan, gluten and dairy-free mousse., this is your answer. This dessert is nice and rich, which is why we love it, but I recommend this as a smaller serving. Just a small serving is all you need and it won't disrupt a healthy eating plan.
