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.

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!

Dr. Fuhrman’s Goji Walnut Squares with Chocolate Drizzle

Since I started my Reboot journey, Dr. Fuhrman (who monitored my 60-Day Reboot in Fat, Sick & Nearly Dead) has become a good friend of mine. He recently wrote the foreword in my new book and has been a fantastic resource helping me and millions of others stay healthy after their Reboot. His Eat to Live series is excellent for doing just that. I had a chance to look through his new Eat to Live Cookbook and it is full of plant-based, nutrient-dense recipes that make it easy and enjoyable to continue to eat healthy. It’s a great inspiration and reminder to all of us that you don’t have to sacrifice flavor to live a healthy lifestyle and enjoy a diet rich in plant-powered nutrients.

Sweet Summer Season Juice

Wish Upon a Watermelon Juice

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

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.
