Hoppin’ John

Serve with braised collard greens-

“Eat poor that day, eat rich the rest of the year. Rice for riches and peas for peace”. This is a southern saying on eating a dish of Hoppin’ John on New Year’s Day to ensure a prosperous year filled with luck.

This is my quick, vegetarian version (the original Hoppin’ John calls for dried black eyed peas soaked overnight and a ham hock). While I like to make this on New Year’s Day (we all want prosperity and luck for our families, right?), it is also a great dish that I prepare almost year round.

Allow that energy of prosperity and luck to permeate through your energy centers. You’ll activate all of them if you serve southern braised collards along with your Hoppin’ John.

Indian-Spiced Kale and Sweet Potato Soup

I created this soup when I was on a mini detox where I mainly consumed fruit and veggies. Whether you need a healing soup for detox purposes or not you’ll want to make this warming soup in the cooler months and it is highly adaptable; add in some beans for greater sustenance.

Along with some detoxing, this simple soup activates all of your Chakras. You may find yourself preparing this soup on a regular basis during the holiday season not only to keep your liver optimized but to also optimize your emotional and spiritual states of being; a food-based reminder for gratitude for all your blessings.

Slow Cooker Red Beans and Rice

This is one our favorite slow cooker recipes (and its vegetarian!). It’s great on its own, but can be the base for taco salads, burritos, tacos, or as a side dish to a grilled meat. I cook my rice in a rice cooker 40 minutes before we are set to eat. If I know I will be out right up ‘til dinner time, then I make it at the same time as when I prepare the beans, only needing to heat it up at mealtime. You will have extras- perfect for lunch the next day!
