Spring 10 Day Reset

Join us, 29th April 2019 to make a few simple changes, just for 10 days. A quick way to reset or boost your metabolism, aid detoxification and feel great. Allowing you to Restore * Refresh * Re-Energise

In this busy and stressful world, we can’t escape the multitude of chemicals in our food, water, air, personal care and cleaning products and even home furniture and furnishings. Our body’s are constantly bombarded with stimuli, stress and chemicals and are therefore constantly active – filtering, neutralising and removing metabolic waste products and added toxins.

Even when our body’s are effective at this and coping enough to stay healthy, it still makes sense to help support this amazing system. We can do this by including simple, regular activities that help reduce build up and therefore reduce the load placed on our digestive, immune and detoxification processes. This also optimises repair and rebuilding processes to maximise our strength, mobility, function, comfort and energy. What’s more, it helps to minimise and maybe even reverse “age related” wrinkles, hormone imbalances and even, symptoms of chronic illnesses.

It’s a combination of core principles, focusing on 4 main areas

  1. Diet
  2. Movement,
  3. Mental
  4. Lifestyle

We then, split this into 10 daily modules, detailing each topic and containing simple, actionable steps

Simple and easy to implement, it’s a matter of small actions performed daily to produce a transformational outcome.

It’s the application of effective action steps within these 4 areas that allows massive change. Shifting the body to a more alkaline state which translates directly to

  • reduced inflammation
  • improved healing/repair
  • improved hormone balance

=> anti-aging

=> reduced pain

=> increased energy

Via the closed Facebook group, you will receive mini worksheets and action steps for each day and details of a short, simple and effective excerise program, when we come to the movement module.

This is a 10 day program designed to do 2 main things

  • provide you with a simple 10 day detoxification process that you can keep coming back to, whenever you feel you need it (yearly, or seasonally)
  • help you create healthful habits that you can implement into your everyday life.

Optimising what you put in, to Maximise what you get out – To keep you energised, looking good and feeling great. No matter your age!

Please be aware

  • If you have a specific issue, it is best that you undertake this program under the guidance of your primary healthcare professional.
  • It is a short detoxification program, not a “weight loss” regime. It will give you quick results to boost your metabolism and your energy, and help you feel more comfortable as well as have less pain, and it is highly likely you will lose fat and build stamina within this short time
  • While you could follow this basic program to allowing you to lose fat and build tone, stamina, strength and flexibility. A healthful and sustainable weight loss program will take a minimum 3 months. Realise that we are a product of what we have eaten, done and thought over the past 3-12 months. We replace every cell in the body, but this takes months and in some cases years to complete. While we feed our body the right things, we will replace each cell with healthier ones… an exciting and empowering idea! Consistency, Patience and Belief is KEY
Healthy Peppermint Patties

Healthy Peppermint Patties

Easy                 Portions per batch: 20-30               Time: Active: 5min mixing; 20min rolling and choc coating

                                                                                          Waiting: 30min “freezing” time; 15min “setting” time

 

Bought chocolate snack bars are full of processed sugar, poor quality fats (including the most dangerous trans or hydrogenated fats) and are high in calories without having any nutritional value.

These simple and delicious treats use organic shredded coconut, providing fibre and healthy fats, removing the highly processed or totally unnatural, hard to pronounce “ingredients” used to produce that soft, chewy, melt in your mouth patty.

A small amount of minimally processed sugar (your favourite organic – coconut syrup, maple syrup, raw honey…) allows an enjoyable treat, without added chemicals, or too many calories and the potential added benefits of raw honey (as it is potentially anti-microbial and useful for asthma type allergies).

Using organic essential oils provides safe and tasty flavouring with the added health benefit of the oils themselves – peppermint has been shown promising to improve clarity and focus as well as assist gut issues (bloating, discomfort, indigestion and even IBS).

When covered in a thin layer of high quality dark chocolate (preferably vegan, organic, fair trade and low processed), we can enjoy the flavour and sweetness of cacao while our body gets the benefit of the antioxidants found in low processed cacao without the high sugar or unnecessary fillers (that allow the products to be produced cheaper and go further) that may also be harmful. One can even play with making one’s own chocolate from cacao powder, cocoa butter (or coconut oil, but this is much softer and melts quicker) and a touch of low processed sugar such as maple syrup or raw honey- simple and delicious)

Ingredients:

  • 4 cups shredded coconut (approx. 220g)
  • 35g (1/8cup/2 Tbs) maple syrup or fav “healthy” sugar
  • 2Tbs coconut milk (I use cocoquench by pureharvest)
  • 10-15 drops peppermint essential oil (organic)
  • 200g dark vegan chocolate

Method:

  1. Use strong blender/Thermomix place shredded coconut in blender and blend on highest speed until you hear it change sound/it becomes “coconut butter” and the oils release (30sec in thermomix)
  2. Add maple syrup and coconut milk and essential oil and mix thoroughly
  3. Take full teaspoon scoops and roll into ball, flatten and place on tray
  4. Place in freeze for at least 30min
  5. Heat 200g (more is better) high quality dark chocolate (at least 70%) either in double boiler or microwave method, use a fork and dip each of the patties into the chocolate.
  6. Allow drips to run off and place back on the tray.
  7. Reheat the chocolate if it gets too thick due to the ice-cold patties sitting in the melted chocolate. Allow to harden

Suggestions:

1. Try with:

  • Orange essential oil
  • Orange blossom water
  • Rose water

2. Try making Peppermint bars instead – pat down the patty mixture into a slice tray (either silicone, or lined with baking paper). Place in fridge to cool then place cut marks in the slice and then place in the freezer. After 30min, take out of tray, slice into bars and the coat with chocolate as above

Tips

  • If a cool day, on bench is fine to set
  • If hot or humid, place in fridge to set
  • To get the smoothest finish, its best to have more chocolate in the bowl than required, so that the patties can be immersed in the chocolate. Therefore, I suggest melting at least 200g chocolate, 250g even better. You will find you will only use 170g or so of chocolate around the patties

Best stored in fridge, yum at room temp or cold
Lasts a few weeks in the fridge, but I’ll bet there won’t be any left after a few days!
