Weave a tapestry of romance for yourself.  You are in sole command of your life.  Treat yourself like the queen or king, like the delicate flower, like the bright sparkling star that you are.  Go bare!  Air dry hair & skin, braid for waves, free of make-up, oils and lotions, no additives.  Be naturally, honestly, and gently you.  Every choice and step you make is made with pure love and positive thoughts for your future.  An evening stroll, balancing your bank accounts & paying bills, sewing seeds in any size garden anywhere, every choice can bring vitality, vigor, and excitement to you now and forever.  Think romance, be romance, feel romance.  Teach newly running babies to walk slowly through the house like queens and kings, even when excited, for a safe, self-respectful posture & pace.  Slow down.  Speak with purpose and give your words natural space.  You have everything you need within.  Take graceful pleasure in all the little wonders, gestures, and decisions you powerfully rule over.  How magnificent it is to decide and plan romance with every thoughtful step you make for yourself!

Apricot Winter Wheat Berry Pudding

Sweet & satisfying textures are at play here.  A truly decadent start, break, or end to a beautiful day.  Eat this little dish anytime, make enough for the week, and reheat with sweet fruits for a delightful breakfast, baby & me meal, snack, or dessert.

We plan to grow these little jewels and harvest for year round breakfasts full of warmth and romance.  Exchange the apricots throughout each season with strawberries, pumpkin, blackberries, and other seasonally ripe produce.  (I adore the apricot spread and other natural fruit spreads because you can enjoy them all year round with no additives.)

This recipe is lovely and captivates your senses and you finish every bite, helping yourself to seconds, looking forward to more another day.  Just as in life, depth of dimension and variety are important for breakfast.  It takes a bit of time & attention to make, but when made in a large batch, it lends help to the week for early mornings and an ease of coming home to hearty snacks.  (Also nice to eat after working in the garden.  We’re starting a new large garden, more on that soon!)

Non-GMO, organic, fresh, local, vegan ingredients:

Double this recipe for a larger batch to serve more.

1 C Wheat Berries

3 C Coconut Milk (unsweetened), or 2 C Coconut Milk + 1 C Almond Milk-See our recipe below.

1/2 tsp Cinnamon

1 tsp Vanilla

Optional:  1 tsp-2 tbsp Agave Nectar to sweeten

Pinch of Pink Himalayan Salt

Water

Fruit Spread (Pure fruit, no sugar or additives.  We like:  Apricot, Ginger Orange, Fig, and various berries.)  And/Or use fresh fruit, cut up and dotted over or warmed like a sauce to help evenly spread and flavour.

Sort through wheat berries, discarding any stones, and rinse well.  Place in a large sauce pan or pot and cover with 2″ of water.  Bring to a boil then reduce to medium-low and cover with a lid to simmer for about an hour until tender.  Drain with the lid and add berries to a blender with a splash of the coconut milk.  Pulse carefully leaving some berries whole, some blended.  Stir if needed.  Add back into the pan/pot with the rest of the coconut/almond milk, cinnamon, and salt.  Bring to a boil, then simmer on low for 30 minutes, stirring to prevent sticking.  The pudding will be thick.  Remove from heat, add fruit spread, (agave,) and vanilla.  Dish out and top with some cut up or warmed fresh fruit.  Store in a glass container and reheat all week, adding more coconut milk if too thick.  Enjoy smiles and empty bowls.

Wheat berries contain B vitamins which help keep the nervous system and energy levels healthy.  Organic B-12 vitamin sprays can also help.  B-12 is important for everyone, especially vegans, to have in their diet.  It doesn’t store up, so you take daily.  Growing your own vegetables and fruits in healthy, rich, organic compost helps provide B vitamins as well.  The compost helps reduce weeds, too.  People used to eat more from the garden and farm, and the bits of soil consumed provided many healthy nutrients such as B vitamins.  Being in harmony with nature benefits all.

Almonds provide protein, fiber, vitamin E, magnesium, riboflavin, calcium, and potassium.  They are very versatile and great carried whole in pockets for caring travelling companions.

Black Current & Date Almond Milk, Apple & Pear Almond Pie

Flavoured almond milk for natural sweetness is a fun way to dance variety into your kitchen each week.  As with chess and life, think ahead when planning your recipes.  Save the nut pulp to make a base layer for a lovely fruit pie or two.  You can also use the pulp for cookies.  Buy the almonds in bulk so you have them and less bills on hand.  Budget and buy just what you need as they are pricey.  Use the scale at the counter to weigh it out:  2 C ~= 16 oz.  Get your dried fruit in this section, too.  They make great on-the-go snacks, and are fun in this recipe.

Non-GMO, organic, fresh, local, vegan ingredients:

2 cups Raw Almonds

Water for soaking

6 cups Water

6 Deglet Noor Dates

Some Dried Black Currents.  (Very small, so a few tsp works well.)

½ tsp Pink Salt

1 Whole Vanilla Bean

Place the almonds in a bowl and cover a few inches with water.  Let soak for 12-48 hours.  They expand so leave space.  Rinse them thoroughly.  (We leave skins on.)  Blend almonds along with the 6 cups of water, dates, black currents, salt, and vanilla bean for a few minutes.  Place clean kitchen cloth inside a large bowl with the edges of the cloth hanging over the sides. Pour Almond mixture into the cloth.  Pull the sides into a bunch, lift out of the bowl, twist, and use your hands to squeeze the liquid from the cloth. When you can no longer extract any liquid from the cloth, set the cloth full of pulp aside to use later.  Pour the almond milk into a sealable jar and refrigerate.  Once chilled you may drink.  (Shake the bottle before pouring as it naturally separates.)  Use in recipes like the above pudding dish.  Sweet so serve small amounts to children.

Apple & Pear Almond Pie

Little voices may call for “Apple pie, please!”  Small portions as fruit is naturally sugary.

Non-GMO, organic, fresh, local, vegan ingredients:

Press the almond meal into a pie dish or two if you have a lot leftover from making almond milk.  Top with your favourite fruit, apples & pears shown here, mixed with cinnamon, almond butter, a pinch of salt, oats, and a tsp agave.  Bake until soft, tender, and crisp for about 40 minutes at 350 degrees.  Serve warm and enjoy!

Designer Home Health Tips

When dressing your food or your home with romance, choose healthy options.  From computer paper to wallpaper, look for FSC Certified products.  Use non-toxic, no-VOC primer, paint, wallpaper sizing & adhesive so it doesn’t off-gas harmful chemicals into your living and breathing space over the years.  This is important for installing, too.  Avoid spraying paint on walls, using rollers, as sprayed paint stays in the air and can impair your health.  Non-toxic sustainably harvested flooring is key, too.  Cork is great for the joints.  Well-designed, closed storage helps reduce dust collecting on items and in your body.  Every decision can be lovingly chosen to promote a healthy living space.

Light layers are key for all seasons.  Stay warm for optimal health.  Express though dress.  Flowers close in the cold, and open in the sun.  Take inspiration from the flowers in warm layers and prints.

Black Cherry Coconut Milk

Infuse pure fruit juices with coconut milk for a fruitsicle of your choice.  (Baby and) we like orange daily, and we change it up with pineapple, pear, and here, cherry.

Non-GMO, organic, fresh, local, vegan ingredients:

Pour a glass 3/4 full of unsweetened coconut milk, and 1/4 cup or a splash of desired fruit juice.  (Choose juice that is free of added sugar and preservatives).  Stir and delight in this refreshing & nutritious drink.

Beet & Walnut Salad

Beets are simple to grow from seed and oh so beautiful when you pull them from the ground.  Use the leaves, stems, and bulb.  Ever so sweet, beets are beloved.  Buy organic seeds and start when still cold.  Their beautiful colours, shine, and flavour will win you over, over & over again.  I feel inspired by nature’s beauty.  A dress, a sketch, a chair, a recipe…so taken by the sheen of the beet stem, how transformed is a vegetable by washing off it’s earthen coat, how good & small one feels in the presence of such perfect harmony, and even better after the meal, when we go out for an evening sowing of more seeds.

Research your plants well for safe consumption.  Use the whole beet plant for this dish.

Non-GMO, organic, fresh, local, vegan ingredients:

Wash, slice, and steam the leaves, stems, and bulb of the beets in a large pot with some water and a lid.  Cook until tender and plate with walnuts, pepper, and pumpkin seeds.

Serve warm and enjoy.  All beet parts may be blended for young babies or to eat as a beet mousse or soup.  The leaves are difficult for babies to eat when not blended.  (As always, check for individual allergies  first before combining foods.)
