Need some help raising your vibes? Food helps too! ;)
What a year of change and challenge it has been!
For me it has been about a lot of emotional processing, growth & becoming more of myself – in many ways… With all the emotional challenges and energetic integrating, I also have been having lots of heavier-type meals, which felt resonant with how I had been feeling as I delved into my deeper shadow.
AND So, for the first time in over ten years, I have been eating mostly cooked meals…
…which I am 100% Okay with & have no judgements about. I am simply ready to eat lighter now as the energies I processed within moved into more freedom and wholeness. And also my body clearly showed me I needed something different. e.g. my liver and gall bladder felt heavy, skin started to itch and get drier, my ligaments started to get stiff – a new experience! And there was a sense of…friction when I was moving, which went away every time I ate a good bit more fresh raw food within a couple of days. :) So, I am ready and am shifting back into the old familiar ways, which seem new this time around… I feel that this time I am nurturing myself even more through my diet, rather than pacifying, pleasing or disciplining.
It’s SUCH A JOY to start eating in ways that support me at a level that makes me feel energised and full of good earthy energy again!
So, I’ve decided to share a very simple meal that I can throw together in minutes and have finished eating even in the smallest breaks between my sessions with people. It works for lunch, dinner – or pretty much any time you fancy a quick 100% Raw filling meal. (The photos are not amazing, but I aimed to share a recipe that works, rather than dazzle you with a presentation :)
- 1 courgette
- 1/2 bell or sweet pointed pepper
- 1 avocado
- 2 tps chia seeds
- 4-5 cherry tomatoes
- 1/4 apple
- salt (himalayan or unbleeched sea salt) – to taste
- black pepper
- optional: 1 Tbs freshly chopped parsley
- optional: 1/4 lemon juice
*that usually is enough to get me full during lunch, and you can double the ingredients for a bigger meal :)
- Wash & chop all the vegetables and fruit (except for the lemon) into small pieces.
- Place into a bowl and add chia seeds, lemon juice, salt, pepper and mix all together thoroughly.
- Enjoy! :)
