Nature Appreciation

Food Awareness

Eggs + Kale + Avo:

This is a filling, hearty breakfast with good fats and greens when you have a little more time and are craving something savory.

Ingredients:

1/2 bunch kale, stemmed and leaves torn into shreds

2 organic eggs

½ avocado

lemon juice

cold pressed extra virgin olive oil (EVOO)

sesame seeds

sea salt or Himalayan pink salt

  • Prepare the Avocado. Peel and slice. Sprinkle with lemon juice and a bit of salt.
  • Boil water in a large pot. Add kale shreds into the boiling water and let simmer for approx. 3 – 5 minutes. Kale should look bright green but wilted. Drain and let sit in the warm pot while you prepare the eggs.
  • This recipe tastes great with either poached or scrambled eggs.  To poach, boil water in another small saucepan. Bring to boil. Add a ½ tsp of vinegar like apple cider vinegar. Swirl the water quickly to make a whirlpool effect and add in the egg to poach.  Watch it carefully. You may poach the eggs for 5 – 7 minutes or until done.  To remove, use a slotted spoon.
  • For scrambled eggs: beat the eggs lightly in a bowl. Add milk if you would like and perhaps a pinch of thyme or rosemary.  Pour into a pan on medium heat.  Gently stir the eggs from the edges of the pan to the center a few times to create large, soft egg curds 5 minutes or so.  Watch carefully as you don’t want to overcook the eggs.
  • To serve. Place cooked greens on your plate, top with the eggs and avocado and garnish with sesame seeds, salt to taste and black pepper. You can also add a light drizzle of olive oil.
  • If you are craving toast with this meal, use a whole grain sourdough bread, one without added yeast, or added gluten.  
  • Don’t forget to share any photos on social media using hashtag #blissologyproject + #highpranafood

Gratitude

  • While outside during your nature appreciation time notice three things in the natural world you’re grateful for that enhance your experience in that moment.

Wild Card

  • Forgive someone. Is there someone in your life who you have unresolved energy with? Give them a call or visit them to confront what has come between you. Notice how much more lighter you will feel afterwards.

Food Awareness

Roasted Cauliflower and Leek Soup:

This creamy and rich tasting soup has no dairy but is full of vitamins and anti-inflammatory benefits. Make extra and freeze it for a lunch later on in the week.

Serves 4

Ingredients:

1 head of a small cauliflower

2 leeks

2 – 3 cloves of garlic

2 tbsp cold pressed extra virgin coconut oil (or ghee) or extra virgin olive oil

pinch of turmeric

fresh ground black pepper + himalayan pink salt or celtic sea salt

2 cups organic chicken or veggie broth

Sesame Seeds

Filtered water as needed.

Preheat the oven to 400 degrees F

Prep:

  • Gently wash, drain and rinse the cauliflower, then break it into medium sized florets using clean hands or a knife. Discard hard bits of the white stalks, but keep the tender ones, chopping them into 1/4 inch pieces.
  • Use the white portion of the leeks. Save the green stalk ends in a freezer bag or box for making stock in the future.  Slice the leeks lengthwise first into half, then chop into half-moons.  Wash leeks well in a bowl of water.   
  • Peel and slice the garlic into halves.

Bake:

  • Line a rimmed baking tray with parchment paper. Scatter vegetables in a single layer,drizzle with oil, add some salt, pepper and that pinch of turmeric, as well as any other herbs you might like to use.
  • Place the tray onto the middle rack of the oven and roast for 20 minutes. Check vegetables for softness and if needed roast for approx. 10 minutes longer.
  • Remove tray from the oven, let the vegetables cool slightly.

Blend:

  • To make the soup, pour the veggies and chicken broth into a high-speed blender and blend until smooth in two stages, so the blender does not overfill.  You can also use an immersion blender in a soup pot. Add more water if needed to liquefy the soup to a consistency you like, 1 cup should do it.  

Enjoy:

  • Taste the soup and serve in a bowl, topped with toasted black or white sesame seeds for extra minerals and a toasty crunch.
  • Don’t forget to share any photos on social media using hashtag #blissologyproject + #highpranafood

Gratitude

  • Take three things in your life you’re not excited about and reprogram your thoughts to be grateful. Example: If you’re not excited to work full time this week say to yourself, “I am grateful I have a job to go to that creates abundance in my life for myself and my family.”

Wild Card

  • Pay for someone’s coffee. Brighten someone’s day with your generosity and see how it comes back to you in other ways!
