My black thumb...

I read an article about growing celery from the root that you cut off.
It seemed simple enough so I am going for it!

Stage one is letting it sit in water until it has roots large enough to plant into soil.

This is day 1.

Day 4....sprouting in the middle!

This may take a while but hopefully in a couple weeks I can enjoy the fruits of my labor....or..... not so much labor!

Have a fantastic week,
health & happiness,
gratitude & beauty,
simplicity & awe.



Dessert Surprise!

I don't usually spend too much time on dessert. There is never room in my belly for it! 
I had some really ripe bananas and didn't want to trash them so I whipped up this little diddy!

Maca Mousse


1 super ripe banana
1/4 cup raw unsweetened coconut flakes
1/4 cup hemp milk or any nut milk
1 tsp power seed blend
( this was a blend of ground chia, flax, hemp )
1 tsp maca powder
2 tbsp vegan choc chips 
* if you have cocoa use that with 1/2 date *

Throw into a high powered blender
and freeze for at least 1 hr to solidify.

A great addition would be berries on top!

Maca is a Peruvian plant resembling a radish with a history believed to stretch back more than 6,000 years. Inca warriors ate the root before heading into battle, as it was believed to increase virility and strength, according to Scott Wilson of the Panther Gulch Permaculture Project. Today, maca root powder is used in a variety of applications, including the treatment of hormonal imbalances, sexual dysfunction and protection from UV rays.

Dessert with a sexy boost!


Super Protein Salad

My auntie had surgery a few days ago and I wanted to bring her some super yummy and energizing foods.......I happened to have some beans on hand and this is what they turned into.


Sunflower Nori Rolls


1 cup sunflower seeds, soaked overnight, rinsed, and drained
1 carrot
1/4 red bell pepper
1 slice red onion
1 tsp dulse flakes
1 tsp fresh or dried dill
salt and pepper to taste
juice of 1 large lemon or 1.5 small lemons

* Soaking Seeds *

It is important to soak the organic raw sunflower seeds in filtered water overnight.
This releases the enzyme inhibitor which allows you to better digest.

Blend until desired consistency is reached.

Add any veggies that you have to bring some crunch and color to the roll.

Roll like a sushi roll.

I put these into the fridge overnight so that the nori could soften. You could also cut them in smaller pieces and serve right away.

This a nutrient packed snack or meal that is easy to make and keeps well for 2-3 days.

Happy Tuesday!!
