Food You Feel Good About Eating
We don’t have to eat kale at every meal to see results. Seek balance in your consumption.
Begin at your foundation of consumption. What do you enjoy eating? Be honest and make this your starting point.
How is it made? What ingredients are combined?
As yourself how can I make it healthier? There is aways ways to make a current dish a version healthier than it currently is.
The Love and Respect that you have for yourself begins with nourishment. How are you fueling your body? Sweet is one of the six tastes in Ayurveda Medicine. Which is one of the world’s oldest holistic healing systems. It’s based on the belief that health and wellness depends on the delicate balance between the mind, body and soul. I’ve included two recipes that I enjoy sharing with others. It’s healthier than how I used to eat and holds the potential to become healthier. Honor where you are and begin the growth from there. You may need more maple syrup or less. You may even make it healthier by making your own peanut butter. The more involved you get, the more control you have over the content in your dish AND the healthier your final meal becomes. There is something magical that happens when I handle my ingredients, cook a dish and share it with others. There is a transfer of love into the nutrition. Experiment and have fun!
2/3 cup cocoa powder
1/4 cup maple syrup
1 teaspoon vanilla extract
1 cup non-dairy milk
(I start with this ratio and will taste and adjust ingredients’ ratios - it’s more fun to adjust as I go)
Add all ingredients to a high-speed blender. Begin with 1 cup of non-dairy milk and add more if needed to get the desired thickness.
Peanut Butter Cookies
1 12oz. jar peanut butter
1 cup rolled oats
1/3 cup maple syrup
1/3 cup shredded coconut
1/3 cup dark chocolate chips
Heat up PB and maple syrup in a sauce pan. Stir until it becomes fluffy. (It happens quickly!) Add and mix all the ingredients with your hands. Roll into balls or any desired shape and place on dish. Store in refrigerator or freezer and served cold.
