Balance your chakras with food

This is really interesting and something I hadn’t thought of before, recharging your main chakras with food, but it really makes sense when you think about it, I found this on Soul and Spirit magazine today and thought I would share the article on here:

Did you know that you can recharge your main chakras with food? Here’s what you should be tucking into to balance those vibrations…

1. Root chakra

Located at the perineum at the base of your spine, your root chakra is closest to the earth. Its function is concerned with earthly grounding and physical survival, and is linked to your legs, feet, bones and large intestine. It also controls your ‘fight or flight’ response. To give it a boost, opt for grounding root vegetables such as beetroot, carrot, garlic, ginger, turnips, potatoes and parsnips to bring you back to Mother Nature.

Natural living coaching

Individual wellbeing and natural living coaching sessions

Healthy-Living1

I believe it’s very important that you choose the right coach to work with, I offer the opportunity to have a free, no obligation 1/2 hour meeting with me over the telephone/Skype before you commit to booking any sessions. This enables you to ask me any questions you want to about me, how coaching works and for both of us to see if we think and feel there will be a good “fit” between us. I live with a positive mindset and am honest and open.

Vegetarian budget breakfast recipe

eggs and shroom

Breakfast is the most important meal of the day.

We really enjoy a big breakfast before a day at the allotment and this recipe is just the ticket!

Omelette from our chickens eggs, chestnut mushrooms cooked in coconut oil on a bed of rocket and spinach on granary toast

Take 2 or 3 eggs depending on size, we use our on free range chickens eggs but I know not everyone has chickens at hand so if you do buy eggs please make sure they are free range and organic, local is even better if you can find a farm nearby as you can go and visit the farm and see how the chickens are treated. I think eggs are one of the main things to spend the most money on because the welfare of the hens are at stake and you can vote with your money.

If you have an area where you can keep chickens I would wholeheartedly recommend it, after the initial set up, 6 chickens only cost 12p per day to keep.

Back to the recipe, add salt and pepper into the eggs and some herbs if you have them, thyme is always nice, whisk them up add 50 ml water and leave to one side.

Slice up your mushrooms and shallow fry in coconut oil with sat and pepper and a chopped up clove of garlic, I like mine quite crispy but cook them to your taste.

When the mushrooms are ready cook your omelette, I always put a pan lid or a big plate over the top of the frying pan, this makes the omelette rise and become fluffy. At the same time grill your toast, on this occasion we used granary bread from the bakers.

Serve your meal with some organic rocket and spinach, this is really quick and cheap to grow in a container and you can cut it and it regrows a few times so is very economical. You can also buy it in a mixed bag from the supermarket!
