The children have been home all summer long and we have been exploring different adventures and projects to do. As the days get hotter and hotter, we like to cool down with popsicles, but as always, I try to control the amount of sugar they are getting in their diet. So we decided to make our own. My youngest suggested we make rainbow popsicles and then I suggested that we make them aligned with the chakras.
If you are not that familiar with chakras, they are energy centers that govern spiritual power in the human body. Although there are quite a few (114 chakras to be exact), many of us primarily hear about seven of them and the colors associated with each. The first chakra is the Root Chakra and is usually denoted as red (I Am); the second is the Sacral Chakra and is denoted as orange (I Feel) ; the third is the Solar Plexus and is denoted as yellow (I Do); the fourth is the Heart Chakra and is usually denoted as green (I Love); the fifth is the Throat Chakra and is denoted as bl...
When my friend Kemetic Yogi lived in Atlanta, he owned a space called the Healing Earth Temple. He grew and shared amazing vegetables from his garden with me - He grew foods like sweet basil, purple basil, long beans, tomatoes and so much more. Some of these foods inspired this dish. This recipe, Pesto Quinoa Pasta Primavera with Lemon Essential Oil, was updated a bit. Here is a lovely pasta salad that I created which incorporates some of these veggies along with lemon essential oil. Lemon essential oil adds a brightness to the pesto and the overall dish. This pasta primavera is simple to make. You can make it for lunch, dinner or even make it to bring to a small gathering. This is one of my little offering to you this week. Check out the newsletter for other events coming up this week and I hope that you enjoy.
Pesto Quinoa Pasta Primavera with Lemon and Black Pepper Essential Oils
A year ago around this time, I was in Tallahassee, Florida doing the cooking show, Stirrin' It Up with Chef Beee at a wonderful restaurant called, Nefertari's with a brother by the name of Baba Kamau. We made Nigerian Peanut Stew together and it was just incredible. He said that sometimes they call it African Peanut Stew. I like that name, so I decided
to go with it. As you may know, I will be heading to Ghana, West Africa this upcoming week and wanted to share this recipe as I begin to prepare for the trip. This recipe, African Peanut Stew, was updated a bit to include an essential oil. I add a few drops of Ginger Essential Oil to this one pot dish and it really makes the dish taste even more amazing. This is my recipe offering to you this week. Check out the newsletter for other events coming up and I hope that you enjoy. See you in Ghana!
