I believe it is so important to be in touch with your true self, be you a man or a woman. It’s important for us to connect to our divinity and exude our souls. And what better way to portray our sanctity than with food.
Wholesome, nourishing, beautiful and empowering food. Food that lights up each of our cells and makes us beam from within. Food that makes us feel amazing and godlike. Full of energy and vibrancy.
We are women. We deserve to radiate our purity in all means possible. So I decided to portray mine through this delicious and luscious Green Goddess Bowl. But don’t worry, guys can totally enjoy this dish too!
Green. Alkalinity. Flooding the body with pH balancing goodness. Enticing each of our cells into action, allowing them to do their best work possible, in turn allowing us to be the best versions of ourselves. Food is powerful. It has the ability to bring your from sickness to health and so much more. It truly is amazing and I have deep respect for it. In all forms, shapes and colors. It’s my passion. A passion that I am proud of.
How to honor your Inner Goddess
- Set Time aside for You – Set time aside each day to reconnect with your inner self. Whether it be a yoga flow, meditation, journaling, or even watching the sunset. Allow this time to come back to yourself, in calmness.
- Love your Body – Learn to love every bit of your body, including those bit’s you’re not so happy with. Embrace them and flood your body with love. It is yours. And it deserves all the love and respect you can give.
- Connect with Mother Nature – I find being immersed in nature so incredibly healing. I make it a habit to get into nature at least once a week. Get grounded and release all your worries. Always know the earth will always hold you.
- Live from your Heart – Kindness, gratitude and awareness are all practices closely connected to your heart. Be sure to include them into your busy days. Being surrounded with love leaves little room for negativity, and in turn creates more magic than you could ever imagine.
- Rituals – Goddess traditions include those of ritualistic practices because they bring deeper meaning and sacredness to any act. Be it meditation, or sitting quitely in front of a lit candle. Add a daily spiritual practice to your life to create deeper meaning and awareness.
Nutritional Benefits of this Bowl
Edamame Beans – Edamame are immature, green soybeans still in the pod. Edamame beans contain energy, protein, fiber, carbohydrate, various amino acids and low levels of fat and sugar. They are a good source of various minerals such as calcium, iron, magnesium, phosphorus, potassium, sodium, zinc, copper, and manganese. Vitamin C, riboflavin, thiamin, niacin, pantothenic acid, vitamin B6, folate, vitamin E, and tocopherol are some of the vitamins that are present in edamame beans. Source
Nutritional Yeast – Nutritional yeast is a complete protein, meaning that among the 18 amino acids it contains, nine are essential ones that your body cannot produce. You get a significant dose of the minerals iron, selenium and zinc when you consume nutritional yeast as well and one serving of nutritional yeast provides about four grams of fiber. Nutritional yeast is a source of B vitamins, including thiamine, folate, B-6 and niacin. Just a half tablespoon of some brands will provide you with a day’s worth of B vitamins, while other brands offer between 30 and 100 percent of B vitamins. These vitamins help you extract the energy from food and produce red blood cells. Many types of nutritional yeast are also fortified with vitamin B-12, making it perfect for plant based vegan diets.
