    thanks Soose. .I've been here (food wise ) before but then I met my husband and it all went south. Supportive until he figure out what he could control....enough said there. so my diet kind of took a beating and I am now trying to gather my ducks ...so to speak ........so I can gradually make the transition back to a plant based diet. I had cookbooks with lovely ideas in them but they have all disappeared. ...any tasty food suggestions appreciated.. Love mushrooms ,onions ,,garlic curry etc. flavors. can't juice right now because apparently that's a waste of food...go figure. Any and all suggestions welcome to help get me restarted and rebooted again gradually.

    Hi, Vivien. Maybe you could join the "Plant Based Eating AFter the Reboot group and we can talk about food there? Don't want to unintentionally trigger someone to end their juicing early if we talk about food.

    I am really new to all this. I have some obstacles to overcome before I can do a reboot. Right now I am looking for good well balanced recipes to at least get me eating right.



    so far some of what I have been finding are not very appealing :(

    Sorry to butt in as I'm not from Canada but I was going to reply to this before I realized where it was coming from. (Saw it on recent activity.) So ya'll excuse the intrusion, please...

    Vivien, there's a plant-based eating after the reboot group. It's pretty quiet right now but I think if you go look back there in the group's wall, you might see some food and even recipes. Also, you could look at the transition days on the reboot plans -- those days have recipes attached.

    Try to find substitutions for the food and additives you know you need to leave out. The first recipe I made decades ago when we were just trying to cut out the red meats was a marinara for spaghetti that I tried. Once per week, and we were all amazed at how hearty and filling it was.

    We don't use any fat added here anymore. Just an example. I'll add avocado to a recipe instead. Or arrowroot, ground flax or chia seeds as thickeners; I learned years ago that even rice cereal can thicken stews amazingly well (but we're not doing that type grain for now).

    Instead of ground meats, we make a taco filling that is awesome and tasty with chopped walnuts, and also use walnuts in chili and "vegan meatballs" and meatloafs. Just an example. I don't go in for the complicated recipes, either, that a lot of cookbooks think they have to use, with what seems like 20 or 30 ingredients. (Hello? )

    Ask over on the plant based group if you want -- what type of food do you like? And maybe someone has an idea. I'll certainly try. Not that I'm a great vegan cook or anything. Just been where you are and trying to make the change -- without going to processed foods -- for many years now.

    Hello Canadians! Started a new reboot today, having done my last one 2 years ago. I lasted 21 days then and hope to do at least a month now. The differences this time? My boyfriend is doing it with me, so every recipe gets doubled. I’m more confident this time. And I’m putting into practice my favourite discovery: turning all that pulp into delicious veggie broth! Good luck and good health to all of you!

    Hey Canucks. I'm still here. I've been slowly melting this summer but not wanting to complain about it because i know WINTER IS COMING!



    I'm almost at the end of my guided reboot and I am feeling kind of sad and anxious. I felt like having a nutritionist right there with me gave me confidence and allowed me to slowly learn to do this.



    Kimberly sorry I didnt catch you before now. Congrats on your Reboot. How's it going?

    Hi Shay, Have you had a problem with too much fruit? My doctor thought that was a lot of fruit for a diabetic but I'm going to give it a try hoping it will all balance out. I just have to monitor my sugars

  • ShayVibes

    Casey no because you lessen the fruit as you go along and your taste buds will change and you will be able to tell what is full of sugar and what is not. I can get by with little fruit in my juices. I much prefer lemon or ginger after tastes now rather than sweet. I say go with how they make you feel. Cut the fruit in half and see how it goes. Rhaya is excellent. Full of knowledge.

    I'm from Edmonton, AB Casey. I'm Day 6 of juicing today and am finding it really easy as the juices are quite filling/satisfying. I'm excited for you starting. You will feel SO much better!! Stick with it because when you give the body what it needs, it will greatly help heal itself. The body is meant to heal itself with the proper foods.
