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.

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.

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.

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!

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.
