It's raining buckets and so chilly here. Kids are at their dads and I'm flying solo and studying...spending time in my head all day today! So I wanted something warm and comforting. Found a recipe then tweaked it to make it higher in protein and more warming. Came up with this yummy warming, fire energy, single serve apple crisp.
~*~Aries apple crisp~*~
preheat oven to 350•
1 large sweet apple, thinly sliced
1/2 tsp arrowroot powder (or cornstarch)
1 Tbsp flour
2 Tbsp old fashioned rolled oats
2 Tbsp of nuts seeds your choice (I used hemp and sliced almonds)
1 Tbsp sweetener your choice (just don't cook with honey it's not good for you)
1/4 tsp each ground cinnamon, ginger and cardamom.
Dash o vanilla
pinch Kosher salt
1/2 Tbsp oil or ghee
Mix apples with cornstarch, dash of cinnamon and vanilla
In another bowl mix flour, oats,sweetner, spices. Then add your fat/oil and mix with fingers till crumbly.
Grease your small baking dish put the apples in and then the topping.
Bake 10-20 mins. Till brown and crispy. I'm gonna have yogurt on mine. Yummy dinner!
I'm calling it Arues apple crisp in honor of the current energy of Aries that we are being bathed in from the cosmos. Aries is a fire sign, so I upped the spices quite a bit! I am really kicking some homework butt in true Aries passionate fiery determined action. And finnally spending a ton of time in my head today which is the part of the body ruled by Aries.
Don't worry I promise to mellow out and do my meditation (also perfect for Aries) before 9 and be in bed by 10 like a good little yogi.
I still have 2 hours to kick homework butt so I gotta go! Hope you enjoy this recipe as much as I do!
And thanks to Yogastrology® for teaching me so much about the effects of the constellations on our loves and the ways we can love in fuller awareness and balance
I've been swamped with life lately! I assume you have been as well. Here is the cliff notes version:
~*~ I enrolled in the Yogastrology® year long intensive program!
~*~ I am going to learn permaculture with Starhawk at the Earth Activist Training!
~*~ Living, working and loving in abundance!
~*~I am healing from a relationship status change!
~*~I am continuing my sacred yoga dance training with Hemelayaa Behl!
~*~ This year I will start my advanced Ayurveda training with Dr MaryJo of Shaktiveda!
~*~ I got my portable steam cabinet from Santa!
I hope that you are following your dreams as am I!
Remember if I can do it anyone can!
I am never discouraged by finances (even though I qualify for medi cal under this new Obama care thing) or time (even though I have 2 kids, my own business and 2 other jobs), I have a goal and I keep trying and looking for a way untill I make it happen!
The trick is making the choice an then sticking with it!
Some of these accomplishments have taken me ten years o f dreaming! I always knew that it would happen I just didn't know when.
Follow your dreams and the universe will provide!
I believe in you!
Much love and light!
Ok I know I been out for a whIle and tons of life have been keeping me away from this blog. I have many ideas rolling in my mind as to blog topics... But out of all these this recipe has given me the most problems and therefore the most inspiration to write.
Suffering leads to creativity...
So anyway I saw this recipe on Facebook and have been obssesed with making it! I've dreamnt of it all week and even managed to procur a pie pumpkin at farmers market on Saturday.
I assembled the ingredients tonight with feelings of gratitude and wealth!
I love when I'm rich enough to follow a recipe :-)
Well I could have followed the recipe but of course I didn't...cause I don't ;)
So anyho I started by following the recipe and tackling the tough skin of the squash and the heroic attempt at "grating 2 cups of pumpkin" I continued to "follow" the recipe except I substituted fuyu persimmons for bananas.
They Lied! It was yucky! My kids wouldn't touch it, I could barely get it down. So I began to add more honey, dates, hemp seeds, ginger, cinnamon, nutmeg, then I thought of the Blue Lotus Chai Roobios, I added three servings of that. I eventually got it to where I liked it but had to continue to add caramel syrup to get the kids to drink it. I'm still having to give the evil eye as we speak and sweetly coherce the kids to sit down and finish it!
So if you do get so brave as to try a pumpkin pie smoothie...don't bother with the hassle of raw, get a can of organic pumpkin purée and prepare to alter a lot!
May the atumnal force be with with you and your seasonal smoothie endeavors.
I admit it wasn't with me this time ;)
These leaf roses are so cute!
This raw cheesecake looks amazing! I love Tera Warner! All her stuff is awesome!
I'm making these for my sons Murder mystery birthday party!
I've been crocheting spiderwebs a d putting out squash and gourds to decorate for fall.
Getting excited for the coming crisp weather.
Ps the free Seasons of Peace Fall e-course is available. Check the services page for more info :-)
Hope your enjoying the change of seasons too!
Did I get your attention? Do I dare ask what you think the title means?
Ok I admit it was a ploy to get you to read this blog which has nothing to do with wife swapping, swinging or sex, well I guess everything really boils down to sex eventually and you could use the OmniSwing as a sex aid, perhaps the more your life is in balance with the Seasons by practicing yoga/meditation/seasonal living you surely will have more sex appeal (at least to the people you want to appeal too!) and if you go to EarthDance at the Concow campgrounds you might get laid... But I admit none of that is the real reason I'm writing this blog.
I am just luring you in with a sexy blog title because research shows it works!!
HAHAHA (insert evil laugh here) muahhahaahhaaaaa
Now that I've attracted ;) your attention Ill make this brief!
