6 Simple Immune-Boosting Foods

There are plenty of viruses and colds going around, but instead of always looking to supplements, medications, and prescriptions to make us feel better, start looking in your kitchen. These six foods are rich in immune-boosting and bacteria-fighting properties that can help to keep you healthy.

Smart Sweet: Gluten-Free Coco-Nut Seed Crunch

Satisfying, sweet, salty, crunchy and smooth is just an idea of what you may get when you bite into this! It’s a muesli/granola recipe that can be eaten like any muesli with a nut or coconut milk or with a dollop of coconut yogurt and/or some sliced fruit. This recipe is very moreish and you will love it! I love the crunchy texture that the cooking gives it.

Homemade Healthy Granola Bars

If you’re on the go and need a healthy snack, makes your own muesli/granola bars for yourself and your family! They are loaded with natural fiber and protein to keep you full and satisfied.

Vegan Parmesan “Cheese”

Grated parmesan cheese is one of those staples that’s in every fridge so we wanted to make it a staple in our own Reboot Kitchen! Since our kitchen is stocked with “plant-based” friendly foods, this would be no different. We took advantage of our new dehydrator and made our own vegan parmesan cheese from nuts and spices. Get the recipe.

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!
