Simple Strawberry Soup

I created this soup for my good friend and astrologer, Karen Q., for her astrology event where she wanted a fun, dreamy food pairing inspiring imagination and dreaming. This simple, chilled, sweet treat unexpectedly in the form of a soup surely fit the criteria but just make it in the spring or summer when fresh strawberries are in season as this soup highlights this favorite berry’s beautiful color and sweetness we all love. It’s truly refreshing and delightful!

All of this creativity and dreaming energy is aligned with your Sacral and Third Eye while also adding in some Root Charka energy. I love how easy and yummy it is to optimize emotional and physical states of being in your daily living.

Cinnamon Raisin Oatmeal Cookies

Raw versions of popular baked goods are my favorite way to treat my family (and myself) to sweets without wreaking havoc on our bodies. Many raw sweets are a great way to fuel the body properly for sports and other fitness activities as they are a good mix of healthy carbs and a little bit of protein. These Cinnamon Raisin Oatmeal Cookies are my favorite version; they never last very long in my house whether as a pre-workout meal or afternoon snack.

These healthy cookies are a great way to reclaim your power and confidence through trusting your gut and intuition. Your Solar Plexus or seat of power is intimately connected to your Third Eye or seat of intuition and the main ingredients in this recipe activate both those centers. Who knew eating cookies could be so powerful!

Lemon Coconut Blissfully Joyful Truffles

I have made simpler versions of these raw lemon balls once the weather starts to warm up but I decided to energize my original recipe to include some other ingredients that really open you up your Sacral Chakra to feel joy and creative flow in your life. You will feel “blissfully joyful” eating a few of these!

Pineapple-Cilantro Margarita Protein Smoothie

I took a break one afternoon from having my nose in my laptop and desperately needing to recharge. Fueled myself with this incredibly refreshing, super yummy and uber healthy protein smoothie. It was the last week of Jazz Fest and I was daydreaming about the last time I was at this timeless music fest. Almost as memorable was finding El Gato Negro and their Pineapple-Cilantro Margarita. This is my smoothie version and you’ll never miss the tequila (well, if it is before 5pm!).

This is a great way to start your day energetically as it balances all your Charkas preparing you for a more rooted, secure day where you feel your most confident, in your creative flow, and grateful for no matter what is thrown your way.
