Honor and Embrace Your Body – Listen and Trust Your Wisdom

Today we want to share this beautiful quote by The Soulful Woman (www.thesoulfulwoman.com.au). May all women remember how special we are and may we honor our bodies and our souls ♥ Have a wonderful weekend!

“I am deeply GRATEFUL for and EMBRACE this physical BODY of mine that has carried me through my life. She has given me so much pleasure and has also weathered a great deal of pain. 
I HONOUR and embrace all of my body. All her strength, grace and beauty.

May I be receptive, COMPASSIONATE and loving to my body’s specific needs. May I tend to her hurts and pains in the most loving and TENDER way as a mother would her beloved child. 

May I LISTEN to my body and TRUST her wisdom in letting me know what feels right and is for my highest good and where I need to be more protective and boundaried. I honour and BLESS my body.”

Delicious Summer Veggie Meal

This delicious Summer meal is easy to prepare and wonderful for your health ;-)

Recipes by Myra Lewin
serves 4 

* Sushi Rice or White Basmati

Combine ingredients in a rice cooker or pot and cook until the water is absorbed, 30-45 minutes. Stir and let sit covered 5 minutes. Serve with…

* Split Mung Bean (Dhal)

1 cup split mung beans
1-2 tbsp ghee
1/4 tsp mineral salt
1/2 tsp fresh grated ginger
1 tsp cumin powder
1/4 tsp fenugreek powder

Place ghee in pot or pressure cooker and heat. Add all spices. Simmer until the aroma comes up. Stir in split mung and bring to pressure. Cook for 18 minutes at pressure. If using a regular pot, bring to a boil and simmer with lid on until soft, approximately 25-30 minutes. Remove from heat and let the pressure cooker sit until the pressure goes down naturally.

* Coconut Carrots
2 cups chopped carrots
1/2 cup chopped fresh coconut (or 1/4 cup dry coconut)
1-2 tbsp coconut oil
1/4 tsp mineral salt
1/2 tsp freshly grated ginger
1/8 tsp black pepper

Heat oil in saucepan and add spices. Cook spices until the aroma comes up. Add carrots. Stir to spread the oil and spices on the carrots, then add a small amount of water. Cover and simmer until the carrots get bright in color. Let sit 5 minutes and serve with…

* Asparagus and Greens

1 cup chopped asparagus
1 cup chopped kale or other dark leafy green
1 tbsp ghee
¼ tsp mineral salt
1/4 tsp cumin seeds
pinch of black pepper
1/4 cup chopped cilantro

Heat oil in saucepan. Add spices. Cook spices until the aroma comes up, then add greens. Stir to spread the spices on the greens and cook covered for 1 minute. Add asparagus and a small amount of water. Cover and simmer 2-3 minutes until the color of the asparagus is bright green.
Spicing alternative: 1 – 2 tbsp sunflower oil, ¼ tsp mineral salt, ¼ tsp fennel seed, and a squeeze of fresh lime.

* The Additions:

Include nori sheets for wrapping if you like. Bite size wraps are fun to put together as you go! Add avocado, chopped basil and mint leaf into your sushi roll, or just have them as sides to your meal.

You can add a 4 oz cup of hibiscus tea room temperature or warm just before your meal to complete balancing this meal.
