By: Stacy Kennedy, MPH, RD, CSO, LDN; Reboot Nutritionist If your days are anything like mine, mornings are organized chaos involving speed, serenity and serious mental focus to get everyone out the door on time, well nourished and in a happy mood ready to tackle and enjoy the day. No wonder almost 20 percent of Americans skip breakfast. One way to help make mornings less hectic is preparation. One of my sons wakes up starving the other not hungry at all. These raw breakfast cookies are a healthy spin on traditional pastries but without the refined sugars. Here’s another fun and easy leftover breakfast idea… take leftover Sunday Morning Cinnamon GF Waffles and add a smear of almond butter and slices of banana, then fold in half for a super-fast and healthy breakfast “sandwich.”

Tartelettes "ChocoMatchAzukis" ▴ Poires & Amandes. "Ohlala ... mais qu'est ce donc encore que ces tartelettes au nom biscornu" (que vous vous dites peut-être ?!) ??? Oui je vous l'accorde, il y a besoin d'une petite explication...!

Pour réaliser ces petites tartelettes, sachez que vous aurez principalement besoin de produits bruts ou très peu raffinés, dont des amandes, de la poudre de cacao crue (ou non), des haricots azukis, des fèves tonka, du thé matcha et du sirop d'agave. Commençons par la "pâte à tarte"... Cette pâte à tarte est à tendance "fondante", puisqu'il s'agit d'une pâte d'amande (maison) parfumée au thé matcha (d'où la couleur "extraterrestre" !).

Le thé matcha ✿ Le thé matcha est une poudre de feuilles de thé vert japonais, broyée très finement. . ✿ En effet, ses vertus nutritionnelles sont super intéressantes car il est bourré d'antioxydants appelées aussi flavonoïdes (ceux du thé vert sont précisément nommés "catéchines") . ✿ En plus de ses vertus antioxydantes, ajoutons que le thé matcha est également "énergisant".

Mochi au chocolat - Pralinette en vadrouille. Les mochi au chocolat, on avait eu l'occasion d'en goûter de succulents dans la pâtisserie au rez-de-chaussée du centre commercial de la gare de Nagasaki. Pour les réaliser j'ai repris cette recette aux fruits rouges et je dois dire qu'on a mille fois préféré la version chocolatée! Ils sont super bons, pour le coup le côté gluant passe beaucoup mieux donc je vous encourage à tester ceux-là si vous êtes un peu réfractaires.

En refroidissant le cœur durcit, il suffit de les réchauffer quelques secondes au micro-ondes pour qu'il soit à nouveau coulant. (rappel: la farine de riz gluant se trouve dans les supermarchés asiatiques; sinon vous pouvez en acheter ici) (Pour 10 mochi) - 80g de farine de riz gluant - 50g de farine - 135g d’eau tiède - 2 CS de sucre - 10 carrés de chocolat - cacao non sucré. Gâteau moelleux au chocolat à la courge sucrine et aux épices (vegan) En faisant mes courses, j’ai découvert une courge que je ne connaissais pas : la courge sucrine du Berry.

Peu chère (1,99 euros le kilo en bio), je n’ai évidemment pas pu m’empêcher d’en prendre une petite pour goûter ! Son goût et sa texture sont assez proches de ceux du potiron bien que plus sucrée et plus ferme que ce dernier. N’ayant pas d’idée de recette en particulier à ce moment, j’ai décidé de tester cette recette de The Post Punk Kitchen qui m’avait intriguée cet hiver. Ce n’est pas tant le mélange chocolat + potiron qui m’avait intriguée mais le mélange bicarbonate + eau bouillante. Le résultat : un gâteau vegan moelleux, dense et qui ne s’effrite pas ! Vous aurez compris que si vous ne trouvez pas de courge sucrine, vous pouvez la remplacer par du potiron.

I’ve been inspired today to make these cute, delicious, smooth and creamy raw cupcakes.

I wanted to make something different than the regular cheesecake with cashews, so I tried a new recipe with walnuts instead of cashews and I also tried them frozen. In my opinion the texture is much better when they are frozen, because after a few minutes out of the freezer they became too soft and is even difficult to eat them with the hands.

Try coconut water, now available in plastic bottles and tetra packs at a growing number of food stores, as a more lively alternative.

Gleaned from young green coconuts (don’t confuse it with coconut milk made from the pulp of mature nuts), coconut water has a tangy personality and one of the best natural sources of the blood pressure lowering electrolyte potassium. Because the electrolyte balance is very similar to that of human blood, coconut water has been used as IV fluid during war time. Aqua de coco contains no added sweeteners so won’t give you Buddha-belly like other heavily high-fructose corn syrup sweetened drinks. Apart from chugging it straight up, coconut water is a great addition to smoothies. Spinach adds a vibrant hue and plenty of nutrients but trust me, this smoothie does not taste like a salad bowl. I am a big fan of the coconut water from Zico.

Last winter I became interested in learning about raw food dieting. Not sushi kind of raw, but uncooked veggies and soaked grains kind of raw. I won’t go into a lot of detail but here’s just three easy-to-remember health benefits to a raw (or mostly raw) diet: 1) uncooked foods (foods heated to less than 118 degrees farenheit) retain more of their vitamins and minerals. 2) raw foods contain lots of fiber and water to help your body with elimination. Speaking of which, here’s some of the foods I had for BL&D over the pas few days… raw foods: fresh carrot-apple-ginger juice and grape juice The colors alone will energize you!
