Food Alchemy with ‘She’…Winter Tea.
Are you tired of consuming foods based on trends? Are you eating foods because you want a specific outcome? Do you want to learn how to listen for what your body, mind, heart and soul needs/wants to contribute to your well being?
During the Winter months, you can nourish your inner and outer being by listening and slowing down. There are many foods that are available to help you maintain well being. Furthermore, a simple way to support your well being is to have a few dried flowers and herbs for simple teas and cooking on hand. The following ingredients and herbs can support you during the winter season: cinnamon, cardamom, cocoa, honey, lemon, and ginger root.
During this time of year, it is common to feel the body aches with this can be an early indicator of the flu or a cold. If possible, take a quick proactive measure to nourish yourself back into well being.
One simple step is to combine hot water, a sliced up lemon, a few tablespoons of honey, and ginger to a comfortable taste. Keep drinking it until your system returns to normal. In addition, get plenty of rest and eliminate sugar, refined flour and alcohol (toxins) from your daily diet.
Cocoa Ceremony…Winter Love
Next, this magical fruit has so much to offer that when honored in a traditional ceremony the heart of receiving and giving are taken to deeper levels of understanding. Nature has a beautiful way to teach, nourish, encourage and support your well being. Honor you. Honor nature.
The Mayan culture has a deep reverence for cocoa and creating a warm, spicy drink that warms the belly, lifts the heart and clears the mind. In addition, it provides you with perspective from the realms of the unseen and Mother Nature. The thick cocoa drink is intended to be sipped and invites one to sit and listen…not with the kind but your heart and soul.
In the winter months, it is time to minimize cool foods and eat cooked and warm food and beverages. A simple way, to improve the medicinal qualities of cocoa is to eat it warmed as a drink or a dip coupled with seasonal spices and fruits creates a winter treasure that will lift you up, ward off those free radicals, improve your blood flow, awaken your brain and eliminate the winter time blues. Simply remember, abide in all foods with an understanding of the quantity “she” produces in relation to the amount we are to consume. A little goes a long way. “Let food be thy medicine and medicine be thy food.”
As inspired, listen deeply the next time you abide in any food with cocoa in it.
Cardamom and Cinnamon Spice
Finally, these spices make everything just right. Winter love in a cup of tea or in your slow cooked foods will awaken your inner light! “Cinnamon improves digestion and absorption, and promotes elimination. It removes toxins from the body, and improves circulation by strengthening the heart and warming the kidneys. As a blood thinner, cinnamon prevents heart attacks. Additionally, cinnamon may be used in the treatment of respiratory and sinus congestion, bronchitis, colds, and the flu. It is both an expectorant and a decongestant.” Vedic Healing
Recipe: Mix cinnamon and cardamom with some raw honey and support your seasonal cough, cold and/or congestion.
Cardamom is a magical pod of calming sense. It calms the mind, balances the emotions, opens up the airways, helps with digestion, freshens the breath and much more.
