Cheesy Vegan Cauliflower Mash and Green Herb Cauliflower Rice~ Happy, healthy holiday dishes!

Just out!  A new addition to our Green Team Family!  And, it's not GREEEEN!


The white cauliflower has won entrance onto our approved list for The 40 Day Green Cleanse.  It's patiently waited all year on my "maybe" list to be recognized and added to our green family next to its sister romanesco (green cauliflower).  Romanesco worked well for our green family in the past but it is seasonal and impossible to find in the west coast during the holidays. 

And, with a gentle suggestion from a member, it is here!  Thanks, Marlene for the push :)

Yup!  A super delicious and nutritious vegetable that is alkaline, full of vitamin K, anti-inflammatory, and highly cleansing.  Cauliflower is a super amazing addition and can be made into our 2 holiday favorite faux potato and rice dishes for people that really like rice and mashed potatoes but prefer a healthier option or are on our cleanse. 

Here are two of many possible ways of cooking with cauliflower that you will find on my upcoming e-book.  

Cheesy Vegan Cauliflower Mash
1 head of of cauliflower 
4-6 garlic cloves
2 Tablespoons Nutritional Yeast
1/2 teaspoon sea salt 
2 Tablespoons fresh chopped rosemary 
2 Tablespoons fresh chives
2 Tablespoons olive oil
dash of pepper

Pre-heat oven to 400 degrees.  Place the garlic cloves in foil and drizzle them in olive oil and a sprinkle of salt.  If you are using rosemary you can create a separate pouch for the  rosemary as well so it becomes aromatic and easier to eat.   Close the corners on both of them and create an airtight pouch for roasting and place the pouches on a baking sheet.

Chop the cauliflower into florets and spread them out on the same baking sheet as the garlic and/or rosemary.  Roast them for about 35 minutes stirring them occasionally or until they are slightly browned.

Allow the cauliflower and the garlic to cool for 5-10 minutes.  Peel the garlic and place both the garlic and cauliflower florets in a Vitamix or a food processor.  Add salt, nutritional yeast, and olive oil.  Pulse until the texture looks like mashed potatoes.  You may have to use a temper to get it evenly mashed.

Once you achieve the desired texture, add the rosemary and/or chives and fold into the mash.  You may roast the mash one last time to brown the top (optional).

I love to drizzle them one last time with olive oil!

Green Herb Cauliflower Rice 
1 head of cauliflower
4-6 garlic cloves
1 cup chopped green onions
1/2 cup chopped cilantro
1/2 cup chopped parsley
1/2 teaspoon sea salt
a dash of fresh black pepper
2 Tablespoons coconut oil
Juice of 1 small lime
1/2 teaspoon of red pepper flakes (optional)

Chop the head of cauliflower into small pieces.  Add the pieces of cauliflower in 2-3 batches to a Vitamix or food processor and pulse until the consistency look just like "rice".  I take a small portion at a time to make it easier until all the cauliflower is done.    

Heat a skillet on low/medium heat with 1 Tablespoon of coconut oil.  Add the green onion and garlic for 5 minutes stirring occasionally.  Add the other Tablespoon of coconut oil and cauliflower rice and stir for 5-7 minutes until the rice feels soft. 

Add the cilantro, parsley, salt, black pepper, lime juice and red pepper flakes and stir for 3-5 more minutes until you see the rice looks fully cooked.  

Remove from heat and serve.  

mmmmmm, just like rice~!

Holiday goodies: "Matcha Green Tea Balls"

This is the coziest time of the year to commune with friends, family members, and your favorite foods.

A common question I get asked by people that are on The 40 Day Green Cleanse program or from  people that are health conscious is,  "Yve, what foods do we eat around the holidays?"

My response is "Cleanse or no cleanse, the first priority should be to focus on the heart connection between loved ones."  The energy of love fills our heart with warmth and reduces stress levels.  We tend to eat heavier foods when we're under stress.  So now we have another reason to be in LOVE!

As far as food goes,  choose the foods that are organic, delicious, whole foods that are abundant in healthy energy and that keeps your body feeling alive and vital. 
Oh yeah~ and it has to be tasty too!

Below is a recipe for our (level 2) food list on The 40 Day Green Cleanse that will soon  be released on my upcoming my e-book :)  enJOY

Matcha Green Tea Balls

 I just love the combination of Matcha Green Tea and cardamom together in a bite size green dessert.

What you need:
1 1/2 cup raw pistachios
1/2 cup sultana raisins (soaked in hot water for 20 minutes to remove any toxic sulfur)
2 Tablespoons brown rice syrup slightly melted
1 tsp. coconut oil
2 teaspoon Organic Matcha Green Tea powder
Seeds from 3 pods of cardamom
1/4 teaspoon vanilla
1/2 cup of hemp hearts for the outer coating of the balls

Food Processor/Vita Mix, cookie sheet,  one glass plate,wax paper, medium glass or plastic bowl, small spoon.

Start by pulverizing the nuts in a food processor or Vita Mix on low speed.   Grind them for a few seconds to leave them evenly chunky vs. too powdery.   Remove the sultana raisins from the water and pat dry with a paper towel before adding them into the blender.   Then add raisins and all the rest of the ingredients all but the hemp seeds.  I like to melt the brown rice syrup beforehand in a glass jar immersed in hot boiling water for 3-5 minutes so it mixes easier with the rest of the ingredients.

Blend the mixture of ingredients on a medium setting.  You might need assistance with a tamper to get it even.    It will be thick and sticky.

Spoon out the ingredients onto a bowl.  I use a small spoon to measure each serving as I start forming each ball one at a time.  Set them aside on a clean plate.   When I have all the balls complete I pour the hemp hearts on a baking sheet covered in wax paper so I have a clean, flat working space.  I then place each molded ball over the hemp hearts covering them completely.  I am rolling and pouring hearts over each ball as I continue to work with each one like I am working with clay.

When all of the balls are complete I roll each ball once more making sure they are completely round and perfectly covered in hemp hearts.

Then place them on a serving dish.  Chill for at least one hour before serving.
Keeps in refrigerator up to one week.

A transformational worth talking about~

We just finished another round of The 40 Day Green Cleanse.  I would love to share Marlene's success story with you all. 

"When I first heard about Yve Hart's success, I was very interested in her transformation. I had been trying for months to change things for myself. After my father died in 2013, I began to gain weight rapidly.

I also felt exhausted all the time. It was difficult to work out, because I felt as if I had no strength. I was uncharacteristically irritable. I tried doing the things that had always helped me to detox, slim down and feel great. But nothing was working. I was practicing a strong vinyasa yoga practice 4 days a week, eating fruits, vegetables, lean proteins, and still I was gaining weight. Then I stopped sleeping well and began having heart palpitations on a consistent basis.

I was a yoga teacher, but I couldn’t take a deep breath. I went to my doctor and she recommended I do “something different” She wanted me to eat even less fat (good or bad) and change up my exercise routine. I tried walking and slow jogging but I was exhausted.

I was looking for something very different when I saw Yve’s first before and after picture. I was unhappy and felt unhealthy, even though I was living a relatively healthy lifestyle.

I have been through the 40 Day Green Cleanse three times now. But the biggest change I felt happened in the first 20 days. Within the first week, I lost enough of the swelling that was in my body that I could take a deep breath! I felt more calm than I had in a long time.

Once the initial detox period passed, I felt energetic. I felt like my eyes could see more clearly, my thoughts were easier to organize. I felt alive and clear for the first time in so long. I had not even realized how cloudy my mind was, until it wasn’t anymore! I was hooked!

 Since that initial cleanse, I have transformed in many ways. This cleanse has helped me drop much more than 32lbs. It has helped me move forward in my relationships, in my personal and professional development, and in finally attaining goals I have so long strived towards.

Essentially, it is for me as if I have reversed time 10 years physically and allowed myself space to attain the goals I had set for myself so long ago. I continue to move toward meeting more and more goals. There is still so much work to do. But I know that now with this new found energy and connection to my own spirit, nothing is out of my reach."

Full moon eclipse of disaster or opportunity?

                                                                     Art: "Closer" by Nicolas Hall

This full moon eclipse (blood moon) brings us all an important time for reflection in our lives.  It can bring up old patterns that can bring destruction and stop us from shedding light on our new creations and moving forward as our new selves.   These times can bring unrest, fear, doubt, anger, detours, and stir some really deep emotions around in our heads.   

Is this a recipe for action over triumph in achieving our dreams or destruction with distraction?

I am on the verge of a big breakthrough in my own business at this moment and I am choosing to create something new for myself and the world.  How I respond to my old patterns can make me or break me.  Period! 

Is there fear or ego trying to get me to keep hiding under a rock?   I think so! 

It is clear and evident I am moving towards a big breakthrough because I am witnessing so many "gluttonous" tendencies that are showing up for me during this full moon/eclipse time. My old patterns have tried over and over again to distract me from my success this week in looking for new material objects to buy or spending my time helping others achieve success on their personal projects instead of my own.  "But, I neeeeed those shoes!".  Or, "I would feel really great helping this person in need out today".

These patterns were present in my world in the past as the shiny gems that filled my life with pleasure, giving me the false sense of fulfillment and temporary relief from a vulnerable call to action that I knew I had to take.  All those shiny objects and illusions always appeared so beautiful and meaningful.  But, in the end, my heart was still yearning to make a difference in the world.  Did I mean to destroy myself on purpose?  Perhaps.

The 40 Day Green Cleanse has been here to support my everlasting change and growth during this whole year as I move more and more in unveiling my true self.   I have achieved breakthrough after breakthrough with leading this program and being deeply immersed in it as a curious student for my own transformations.   This green adventure has helped me in revealing more of my authentic beauty and guiding me to my true north as it has for so many others on the Green Team.

The time is now to find a way to spread this message on a much larger scale so many more people can experience the gifts that so many have received this far.  This is going to take a team of people and a courageous heart to speak up loud and clear about my message.   This brings up fear and resistance and I am willing to break through this with a ROOOOARRRR! 

This old game I used to play will not help me touch the deepest part of what my heart wants to express to all of you.   But, I do thank it for this amazing message I chose to blog about today as I have been blocked from writing to you for weeks!  We can turn what seems to be a disaster into amazing new possibilities by calling out the unconscious acts into conscious choice.
From lead to gold nuggets.

Are you honoring the shifts, transformations, births, and rebirths in your lives as your new selves?  Or are you allowing illusions to take over so you can keep from breaking though?   

I call upon you to gain a greater sense of clarity on your truth and authenticity around living your unleashed and wildest dreams. 

I love you all and see you on the Green side!
In love,

my secret journal of reinvention

My personal adventure of reinvention on The 40 Day Green Cleanse might have looked like my primary focus was to lose weight.

Yes, I lost 40 pounds (at age 40), but what lies under the surface is a strong dedication for self growth and claiming my true power as a woman.

To be powerful, authentic, and dedicated to being the best I can be for myself, my family, and my son is my primary focus.  Honestly, the weight was just a cherry on top.


Here is my journey...

round 1

Mind:   I finally had the clarity to put sentences together that made sense when blogging.    I started new self lovin' rituals daily that made a huge impact on the way my days were lived day in and day out finding the connection back to self.    I went back to work at the studio on this round with my new focus. I was becoming more aware and writing in my journal about this internal and external process I was going through.  

I started a new business after this first round (yes, The 40 Day Green Cleanse) in response to what people wanted.  By now, I had created an entire new program including mind, body, spirit awareness practices along with an amazing list of green food list, coaching calls, group support, and recipes.  WHAT!?   It was a surprise to me because I never expected this direction I was headed towards in my business.  I went from devotion to self, to passing my new found wisdom and passion forward. 

Body:  I shed 19 pounds of fat and a considerable amount of inflammation was reduced.  The appearance of cellulite diminished greatly because of a better functioning lymphatic system.  I continued my routine I had started 5 months prior to this cleanse of working out 3 times a week.  I wasn't losing any weight until I began with this cleanse.  My digestion was working like clockwork once again.  The full nights of peaceful sleep was a huge celebration.   The sleep was a big gift since I was only getting about 1-3 hours of continuous sleep for one whole year prior to the cleanse.   I have a rhythm now that is connected to my true nature.  

Spirit:   I mourned the letting go of my "old self" and old beliefs around who I was.  I slowly became able to gather what it was to feel ALIVE again and feel my whole self as it should feel; Healthy, grounded, expanded and vibrant.   I found that connection to my "self" again, my new self.  My meditation practices were expanding and the sense of balance was starting to reflect in my environment.   I started to feel a part of community once again.  

round 2

Mind:  I had many moments of inspiration that kept coming.    I had done and led many cleanses in the past and I never intended it to be a part of my life in this way and at this time as a guiding force.   The effects of the 1st round cleanse were restructuring my career and it all took me by surprise  how much it had expanded.

I found cooking as a way to be creative and came up with all my new recipes that I was able to share with the first official Green Team in May and the second Green Team in June.   This is all so mind blowing in how fast this program and my new life was developing.  

Body:  I lost 16 extra pounds of fat on round 2 and more inflammation.  My body felt incredibly light, but yet grounded.  In over 20 years of cleansing, I have always felt my body light, but never grounded! My heart was expanding beyond what I have ever felt before and my heart was leading the way.

Spirit:  I connected more and more to receiving the guidance from my higher self; Directing me to the next step in my life.  I did not have the urge to control everything anymore.   I felt a deep sense of trust in my process, even though I did not know where I was going next in my life.   I felt like I was able to clearly channel the information I needed to expand my program and my self effortlessly.

round 3

Mind: I set an intention to really take it easier on this round and experiment with a maintenance level this time.  On this round, I started leading the 3rd official Green Team (there have been 4 total).  By the end of this round I was celebrating 85 official Green Team members, and I added more work/play to my day to day practice because I knew I  could take more on with my new found energy and growth.  

Body: I shed 5 pounds (and reached my goal of 40 pound weight loss total) of fat and started doing some weight training with Armando Hart, My husband.   I started building more strength and muscle definition.  My focus was not on cleansing as much as rebuilding this round as I am able to maintain and nourish my body with nutrients and minerals from the amazing food list.   I felt like I had reprogrammed myself to a new way of eating,  living, and embodying information. 

Spirit: I began unveiling some very deep rooted unconscious beliefs during this round that I thought I had dealt with years ago.  I experienced a new way of working with these emotional blocks as well.   This experience was emotionally ans physically intense and I felt my body and mind were strong enough to take on what what I chose to uncover.  My heart is incredibly full of compassion now after so much release.  It is truly incredible how much love and energy I have to share with the world now.

Health Rituals

Healthy living is not just about eating the correct foods day in and day out.  It is learning how to create daily rituals in your life so that you can learn to honor yourself as a complete, holistic being and unleash your full vibrancy from the inside out.  Without honoring your body, mind, and spirit, true balance and health cannot be achieved. 

My weight loss of 40 pounds could not have been attained without balance, awareness, and the practice of these important rituals below.  

Daily rituals for healthy living
Drink plenty of water
Get plenty of sleep
Surround yourself by community and people that believe in you
Laugh a lot
Incorporate your greens with every meal
Appreciate nature
Know your personal boundaries
Have fun in life
Reduce your stress levels
Eliminate added sugars
Stop calorie counting
Eliminate processed foods/low-fat foods/unpronounceable foods
Develop empowering self-talk
Get enough exercise
Eat nutrient rich foods that come directly from the earth
Cook at home vs eating out
Listen to your body's needs
Quiet your mind daily by meditation, a yoga practice, or alone time with nature
Practice self lovin'
Do a cleanse at least once a year
and repeat....

                                                          The local Green Team had a Green Party

These rituals may seem simple, but they can be challenging to many of us if we are out of balance.  I will give you the to tools you need on my program, The 40 Day Green Cleanse, to get a jump start on YOUR super vibrant life!  By the 40 days, you will have created the energy you need to start implementing what is important to feel your best everyday and you will be completely supported to live the best life possible with the amazing Green Team community no matter what state or country you live in.

In health,
Yve Hart

Completing the first 40 days I was left feeling like this.  Beyond that, I lost 19 pounds of inflammation, weight, toxins.

The second round I lost 16 pounds.  Read more here.  

Now, on my 3rd round as more of a maintenance and container to set forth important goals I have set out to achieve for my personal life.  I love being held accountable within a loving, compassionate community of folks.

35 pounds less and MORE of ME!

My personal transformation on The 40 Day Green Cleanse is something to celebrate!  I have lost a total of 35 pounds since the start of the cleanse at  the beginning of March 2014 and I have more of ME to share!   

This cleanse has been more than losing excess pounds.  Beyond the pounds, I have gained an awareness that allows me to feel better about myself and feel empowered to live a more balanced life physically, mentally, and spiritually.

I lost a total of 19 pounds when I first went through the 40 days. I loved it so much that I chose to continue eating 50% green;  This is level 4 of the cleanse.  I never starved myself during those 40 days;  I ate delicious green foods that were prepared to taste better than what I expected.  In fact, I offer more than 25 recipes the Green Teams, and counting.  Read more about my first 40 days here. 

Last month,  I dedicated myself to the program once again while I facilitated and coached 30 individuals through The 40 Day Green Cleanse.  I moved to a level that allows eating lean meats and fish (level 3) in addition to the green fruits and veggies and I'm still managing to keep energy levels high and my health on point.  After all, I feel more alive than I have ever felt in my life!

Look at the image below and see what's possible at level 3.   My family also eats what I eat and they are all  happy and healthy.   I made my husband a sushi roll made with Ahi Tuna, smashed avocado instead of rice, baked sage zucchini, fresh cucumber, sprouts, and all served with a side of tamari sauce, wasabi, and ginger.   It was super yummy.   I wish I had a picture of my husband's face while he was eating it.  One of these days I'll capture it lol!

The card below says "Detoxification",  an auspicious message for the meal! 

I even managed to lose 16 more pounds even though I started hitting the gym and putting on muscle.  My husband creator of ZeroPoint Performance inspired me a few weeks ago to step up my fitness routine and start workouts with him in combination with the cleanse.  So, I am taking advantage of the offer.  Firm body, here I come!

For now, I am excited to continue eating the way I have for another 40 days alongside the July 23rd Green Team.  I make realistic commitments so I can always achieve success and engage myself in the reflections and inquiries that this program provides.     

This is my new green way of life and I love it!!!
My family loves it, I love it, and the Green Teams LOVES IT;  That's success to me!!!

In Beauty,

Yve Hart
