FOOD HEALS PODCAST- EPISODE 364-

CREATING A SPIRITUALLY ALIGNED RELATIONSHIP

I loved every second of this podcast! Hosted by Allyson Melody where, some of my fellow spirit junkie brothers and sisters joined the conversation on How to create a spiritually aligned relationship with food to change your body, business and Life.

As some of you already know, I started my a spiritual awakening journey through my recovery from anorexia 10 years ago. I was working as a fashion designer, living in New York, living the dream I had since she was 4. But I felt disconnected (Mind- body-Soul). On this episode, I share my aha! moment, and some self-love practice that transformed my reality and thought me that my eating disorder was a teacher and door to freedom.

Nourishing banana bread

The dry mix

  • 1 1/3 cup of coconut/cashew flour or regular
  • 1 pinch of Himalayan salt
  • ½ cup of oats
  • GHEE optional
  • 2 tablespoons of coconut sugar
  • 1/2 tsp baking soda
  • 1 pinch of cinnamon 
  • 1 pinch of cacao nibs, almonds if you like.

 

The wet mix

  • 2 big bananas or 4 medium
  • 1/3 cup of milk of your choice. I suggest almond or coconut
  • 1 drop of vanilla stevia
  • 2 tablespoons of flaxseed
  • 1 tablespoon of honey
  • 2 eggs
  • ½ tsp coconut oil

Method

Preheat 350 degrees for 1.5 hours. 

Lightly spray a 9×5-inch loaf pan with coconut oil or GHEE and set aside.

Now, in a large bowl, mash the banana until it is almost smooth and add  the wet ingredients (milk, ground flax, melted  coconut oil, honey,) into the banana until combined.

Mix all the dry ingredients (sugar, oats, baking soda, baking powder, salt, and flour) into the wet mixture until everything is even and you don’t see flour patches at the bottom of the bowl.

Place the mix dough into the loaf pan and spread out evenly. Here you can add some almonds or cacao nibs if you want. 

Bake for 45 -50 mins 

Place the loaf pan on a cooling rack for 30 minutes before turning out.

Slice and enjoy!

HOW TO HEAL YOUR HEART USING THE HO’OPONOPONO PRACTICE

Healing comes with love and forgiveness – To “for-give” is a process of giving forth. In forgiving we give a new trust to another, exemplified by our risking being open, vulnerable, and receptive.

Forgiveness is freedom  Ho’oponopono is one of the most beautiful and profound ways we can practice  forgiveness, love, letting go and presence.
Sometimes we find it easier to forgive others rather than ourselves. Healing the relationship you have with your body is the foundation of all of your relationships. It all goes down to the following question:

WHAT DO YOU CHOOSE TO SEE IN THE MIRROR?

For years, this was really hard for me. I had a very bad relationship with my body. For years, I had a very negative self-talk, judgment, and practices. For years, I did’t felt beautiful and was very insecure because of this.

I was riddled with anxiety, cloaked in false confidence, chasing external validation and truly believing that if I just got this job, guy or size I’d feel enough. All while trying to make sense of who I was.

I had no idea what self-love meant… and that’s the thing. I guess most of us at some point had a negative relationship with our bodies.  We start to experience our bodies through our ego ( fears, insecurities) wishing to look or be X,Y,Z because what we have apparently is not good enough and we start to believe it!

The worst part of this is that our energy also starts running low… so we start attracting really weird situations and people that come to mirror  those beliefs. Until, one day you decide what to see in that mirror.

Ho’oponopono helped me so much!

Ho’oponopono is an ancient Hawaiian well-known for helping clear negativity, resentment from one’s mind and thought..The word “ho’o” means “cause” in Hawaiian, while “ponopono” means “perfection”. The term “ho’oponopono” can be translated as “correct a mistake” or “make it right”..This practice can be used for yourself or with the intention to forgive someone else.

Now, let’s get to work. There are 4 steps.

I love to do it in front of a mirror. Today I will teach you a way you can incorporate this practice while you meditate.

Find a comfortable sit and gently close your eyes.

Allow your breath to guide you. When you more centered set an intention for what you would like to release, transform or forgive.

For example, I want to transform the wrong perceptions I created for my body. I choose love.

Breathe in and out your intention. * If you want to forgive or heal your relationship with someone visualize them in front of you.

Gently invite the following phrases as a mantra and repeat them for a few minutes:

1.I’m sorry.

2.Please forgive me

3. I love you

4. Thank YOU..

Repeat. Feel.

Repeat.Release.

After, a few rounds release the mantra/the image of the person and gently open your eyes.

These four phrases seek to guide you through these four sentimental steps: repentance, forgiveness, love, and gratitude.Simply repeating these words can trigger the release of blockages, negative memories, and traumas so that you can take more control over your own body and life.Try them and let me know how it goes!!

Please remember, your body is LIGHT, a messenger of LOVE. Your body is DIVINE and it’s purpose is to be a vehicle of love and light.

Now let me ask yourself What do you choose to see in the mirror?

Roasted Carrots

I love carrots!!! They give us dynamism, color on our plates and have loads of benefits for our health and skin.

Health BENEFITS of carrots

  • Rich in vitamin A which is great for our skin. Although I don’t recommend long period of time in the sun, this brilliant vitamin can help us stay more protected.
  • Known as one of the most effective diuretic vegetables! This promote the reduction of our body storing excess fluid.
  • Build strong hair and nails thanks to the beta-carotene and provitamin A.
  • Promote healthy eyes. Beta-carotene helps to protect the surface of the eye (cornea), which is essential for functioning vision.
  • Boosts the immune system with the critical minerals iron, zinc and copper.

Energetic benefits
