I keep coming back to gratitude. Whenever I feel overwhelmed or scattered or just down, I am finding this daily habit of gratitude to work wonders. Seriously, I mean miracles.
Todays gratitude List includes a recipe ; ) I'll be sure to take a pic next time and post it here...
So, Thank you:
Thank you that I live in my own world of peace - and when it doesn't feel peaceful, thank you for the space to breathe and centre and find the truth again.
Thank you for the delicious raw butternut soup recipe: (it popped into my head straight from the Your (God's) Recipe book) Which means I went into auto-pilot and just watched my hands do the preparation and was blown away by the delicious result....
Here it is for anyone else who'd like a soup that doesn't leave you with heart-burn or feeling bloated and tired.
FRESH BUTTERNUT SOUP:
2 cups of fresh uncooked butternut ( the darker the orange colour - the sweeter it is)
2 Tblspns olive oil
3 Tblspns coconut milk
1 cup chopped dhanya leaves (coriander/cilantro - same thing)
cayenne pepper to taste
1 cm of ginger root
1 garlic clove
2 cups very hot water
2 tspns lemon juice
1/2 a ripe avo
1/2 small yellow pepper
Put all ingredients into a high speed blender. After blending till really creamy - add more salt to taste.
Garnish with dhanya leaves and a swirl of coconut milk.
If you desire a more savoury depth to the flavour, add a Tblspn of Soya sauce or wheat free Tamari sauce.
