There are many reasons to love a good casserole – they are comforting, easy to make, and you get to use up a lot of the leftover ingredients in one dish. I used to make a lot of casseroles when I was a university student because they were cheap to make and I could feed a crowd (aka my flatmates). I can’t say I paid much attention to the nutritional values of those casseroles at the time so they were often heavy, made with pasta and way too much cheese. Let’s just say there are much healthier ways to make a casserole and that’s why I’ve put together this round up of nourishing casserole recipes.

People often think about celebratory and festive foods as something decadent and indulgent, something they shouldn’t eat too much of unless they’re prepared to go on a mini detox the day after.

So, unless you have been living under a rock, I’m sure you are all well aware that coconut water has been the ‘go-to’ for a super cool, wellness conscious, friendly drink. It has been the drink of choice for some – to have post workout, as a base to your smoothie or as a mixer in your favourite mocktail.
Today’s soup is a marvellous fusion of two nutritious root vegetables – Jerusalem artichokes and carrots. It’s the more sophisticated sibling of the pumpkin soup, nutty and savoury with more complex flavour. Great in summer and winter, this soup is a perfect light meal in itself or can be served as a dish in a two-course dinner. For those following the 28 Day Rejuvenate Program, this is a great dish to have on cleansing Mondays.
I love my spiralizer! It makes preparing vegetables quick, easy, and fun plus a little different to slicing and dicing. There’s also something very attractive about a pile of colourful vegetable spirals. Fruit and vegetable noodles can be used to make delicious raw salads, as a low carb pasta, noodle or rice replacement, in stir fries, soups, latkes, or pancakes. You can even make baked treats like sweet potato curly fries, onion rings, or crispy apple chips.

Wow only 8% achieve their goals…seems a lot of people don’t follow through on these resolutions! Why?
