This is Socca, a flatbread made from garbanzo bean flour. I stumbled across this today and just made it this afternoon. It is SO good. Dairy free, gluten free, wheat free, corn free. Easy. Delicious. Get the recipe Here. It's from a really cool website called Pure 2 Raw.
On January 15th, I made a "Welcome 2012" commitment to "surrender, let go of worry, and be willing to feel vulnerable". I have to tell you that so far......things are going great! I thought it would be really hard. It has actually been more uncomfortable than hard. I worked on (and continue to work on) deepening my awareness, observing my surroundings, tempering my reactions, and above all....cultivating deep trust and great love.
It has been remarkable for me to finally see, feel, and experience how much fear and worry has held me back. So many doors have been opened, ideas created, clarity and vision restored, love deepened.
I still have lots of things to work on in this arena. I am not sure if I will ever fully arrive at that place of total surrender and completely worry free. That's ok with me. Having some worry, when properly channeled into clarity, makes for some pretty awesome goal boards!
Carrot juice and Hemp Toast with Backyard Eden Honey. This honestly is the best honey I have ever had. It has a deep rich flavor. To me it has a flavor of caramel. Thank you Jeff Rainey for harvesting the most beautiful honey....ever.
Don't get me wrong, I love a good cup of espresso....but the side effects are not always desirable. Like a migraine, fitful sleep, psychotic jitters. And since I am doing a Detox for 30 days and eating an 80% alkaline diet, I'd rather skip the double tall whatever.
Enter coffee alternatives. I think they all suck. Except for this one. I like it hot, cold, black or with almond milk. No sugar needed...it has a touch of natural sweetness to it. AND Dandelion Root is very alkalizing! Double bonus for Dandy Blend!
What ever Dear Irene decides to do, we at least know we are going to see some wind, rain, and most definitely a change in barometric pressure. Already I am feeling it. I woke up this morning with a bit of a headache. I have a tendency to get them before a storm. So I thought I would share with you my quick fix that I did on myself.
1. I did just a couple of Bowen moves on my neck.
2. Did a double shot (2 T) of E3 Live Blue Green Algae. If you are in the area, I have E3Live for sale at my office, or you can just order it from them directly.
3. Drank 16oz. of "high quality H2O"
I love kale. I love Brad's Cheesy Kale. I don't love paying $8 for 2.5 oz of kale and contributing to the consumption of plastic containers. So...figured I would try to deconstruct the recipe and make my own. After all, how difficult could it be? Not difficult at all. So there. Here is what I came up with...
Kate's Cheesy Kale 1 bunch kale 1 C raw cashews 1 C raw sunflower seeds 1/2 red bell pepper coarsely chopped 1 C nutritional yeast juice of 2-3 lemons sea salt to your liking just under 1 C water (enough water to make it like a creamy salad dressing)
Wash and dry kale. Remove the center stem. Tear into bite size pieces. Place all kale in a large bowl.
Place all remaining ingredients in a food processor and blend until creamy.
Pour the "cheese dressing" over the kale and mix thoroughly. I like to use my hands to make sure everything is covered and mixed well.
Place kale on the trays of a dehydrator (you just need the mesh trays, no need to use a teflex sheet). "Cook" the kale at 115 degrees in the dehydrator for 10-12 hours.
Good luck with making them last for more than one day!
Considerations: Add cayenne pepper or red pepper flakes. If you do not have a dehydrator, some convection ovens will allow you to go as low at 115 degrees.
If you try this, please let me know how it goes! I would also love to hear if you decide to change anything or add anything that would make it better.
My dearest friend that I miss and love. Suddenly I am realizing that we don't really have any pictures of the pair of us! humpf....that is a case of taking for granted the fact that we saw each other practically every day....until she moved to Denver. Boo. ADVICE: don't take the ones you love for granted. spend time and take photos!
Yarn. Yarn. Yarn. Crochet. Crochet. Crochet. LOVE. I have finally completed all the squares I want for my granny blanket and now I can weave them all together. I will reveal the final to you soon. This is a small project that I started for my tea tray. It's almost done. Does crochet mirror life? I seem to have a few crochet works in progress. My life is a work in progress.
It has been about 2 months since my last posting and I am working on feeling guilt free about it. :) This spring has been quite busy for me and Bowenwork Therapeutics.
My best, dearest friend moved away. To Denver. I was so happy for her because it is something she and her husband have been wanting to do since she and I met. I was so sad for me because I felt liking I was losing the sister I never had. You see, we are both only children. We had our "only child" quirks....together. We grew to love and laugh at them. She is still my best and dearest....just living in Denver. I'm still adjusting. :/ Love video chat though!
Here are some goodies for you.....
