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!

Mexican Margarita Cookies

I adapted The Whole Meal’s popular and healthy raw Cinnamon Raisin Cookies for my friend, Kari L., for her Cinco De Mayo get together as she wanted to highlight fresh Mexican as well as healthier, in-theme desserts. This was a hit in testing with both kids and adults as it has just the right balance of sweet and salty with a punch of lime.

Cookies for activating almost all of your Chakra is a win in my books! Energetically you’ll love how grounded you feel, step into a sensual flow with every bite, get things done and feel lots of love in our Heart.

Chocolate Cranberry Truffles

I was looking for a whole foods alternative to the highly processed “energy” bars (more like crash and burn) so favored by my daughter, who is a swimmer. Upon experimenting with different dried fruits, this was the final version that won her approval, as well as her teammates and friends. Nuts provide a bit of protein, dates and cranberries are a natural sweetener, and coconut adds good fat. I usually add some unsweetened cocoa powder and semi sweet chocolate chips for the chocoholic in all of us! It’s a no cook (all you need is a food processor) snack, treat, dessert your family will love. Once you get a hang of the basic recipe, you’ll enjoy making variations on the basic nut and date base.

These truffles are a delicious way to move high vibes through your lower Chakras to your Third Eye for optimizing your daily living while leaning into your inherent wisdom.

Peppermint Bark

This is the peppermint bark my daughters make every Christmas for their teachers, family and our neighbors. It is super easy to make, it’s economical, and it is a welcome treat both for its deliciousness and the love put into making a homemade gift. My daughters want to share the love with you!

This is pure Third Eye Chakra magic so yes Santa does exist! Share the attunement to higher wisdom with all your family and friends; one of the best gifts you can give them.

Pumpkin Mousse Tarts with Cranberry-Pecan Crumble

Twitter inspiration strikes again! This time in the form of a pumpkin mousse that was the main filling for a pumpkin tiramisu recipe tweeted from Food and Wine Magazine. By the time I got around to testing the recipe my daughters had found and devoured the lady fingers needed for the recipe.

I am a big fan of bite-sized desserts and decided that the mousse could play the star role with a raw nut and dried fruit crumble as its side kick. My first test batch of 15 tarts were gone in 5 minutes! It’s creamy fall flavors wrapped in buttery phyllo topped with a crunchy sweet crumble; this is a must at my Thanksgiving dessert buffet.
