Five Day Green Juice #MINIRESET

Five green juices in five days... that's all! Easy peasy. 
How many of you want to join me in this #minireset? It's not a challenging one (I hope!) but it's creating a habit that I believe some of us may have slipped out of...
This minireset (I am going to do a series over the next few weeks) is a green juice reset. I say juice, but I prefer to use a blender so if we're being technical about it, it's a green smoothie reset. I'm just not a big fan of the word smoothie.
Anyway, having a daily green juice/smoothie/blend or whatever you want to call it does wonders for your overall health. Keep it up and you will see genuine improvements in your skin tone and vibrancy. It delivers so much goodness - I'm not saying it allows for all other choices of food throughout your day, but it certainly is a good start point. You might find that getting into the habit of your daily green juice will help inspire you with your other meals too.

Sweets that are good for your sweetheart

With Valentine's day coming up it may be tempting to splash out on some chocolates or sweet somethings for your lover. If you really feel the urge, why not give these a try. These truffles are full of goodness, really easy to make, and look and taste delicious!

Reset Button Truffles

Ingredients:

100g Figs (chopped)

100g Dates (pitted and chopped)*

100g Hazelnuts

100g Walnuts

50g shredded dried coconut

50g raw cacao powder

 

*If the dates feel dry, try soaking them for 10-15 minutes to add a bit more moisture.

Method:

First put the nuts into a blender and blend until desired consistency. I like it just before it turns to flour – so there are still some small chunks.

Add the chopped dates, figs, coconut and cacao.

Blend. It should form a sticky delicious dough.

Roll the mixture into small balls.

You can roll the balls in various toppings to add a little something extra… cocao powder, dessicated coconut, sesame seeds or crushed nuts.

Put the balls into the freezer for at least an hour.

They can be kept in the fridge in a sealed container for up to a week – or in the freezer for even longer. To be honest you don’t need to worry too much about storage – they will no doubt be eaten first!

You could even get a heart shaped box to pop them in and know that you’re giving your sweetheart pure nutritional goodness.

 

Optional ingredients to try:

Any nut of preference… all are delicious.

Coconut Oil, can change the texture if it’s a bit dry

Vanilla essence

Cinnamon

Other dried fruit – make sure it’s small or chopped small before adding

 

Why soak your nuts?

HOW TO SOAK NUTS

Place your nuts into a glass container.

Cover them with filtered water to about 8cm above the top of the nuts. 

Leave for minimum 4 hours, preferably overnight.

Rinse well with filtered water.

Dry off with towel.

Enjoy the delicious juicy nut. 

These can be stored like this for up to 5 days in the fridge.

Alternatively you can dehyrate them again by putting them in on a baking trayin a oven at a low heat for about 12 hours. They will then keep for weeks.

NB. Cashews should not be oversoaked, 12 hours max, as can go soggy. 

Dehydrate in oven at 90°C for 12 hours.
