2 cups quinoa
5 cups water
4 large plum tomatoes
1. Chop the onion and sauté it in 1 tbs grape seed oil over medium heat for 1-3 minutes, chop the tomatoes and add them to the pot with 1 tsp sea salt. Cook and stir occasionally for 5-10 minutes or until it becomes juicy.
2. Chop the mushroom and add them to the pot
3. Add the quinoa and stir
4. Add 4 cups of water and spices, bring to boil.
5. Cook until the quinoa absorbed much of the water, add another cup of water and let it cook over medium heat until all liquids are absorbed.
6. Enjoy 💚😊

Glazed Lentil Walnut Apple Loaf
1 cup uncooked green lentils
1 cup walnuts, finely chopped and toasted
3 tbsp ground flax + 1/2 cup water
3 garlic cloves, minced
1.5 cups diced sweet onion
1 cup diced celery
1 cup grated carrot
1/3 cup peeled and grated sweet apple (use a firm variety)
1/3 cup raisins
1/2 cup oat flour
3/4 cup breadcrumbs
2 tsp fresh thyme (or 3/4 tsp dried thyme)
salt & pepper, to taste (I use about 3/4 tsp sea salt + more Herbamare)
red pepper flakes, to taste
Balsamic Apple Glaze:
1/4 cup ketchup
1 tbsp pure maple syrup
2 tbsp apple butter (or unsweetened applesauce in a pinch)
2 tbsp balsamic vinegar
1. Preheat oven to 325F. Rinse and strain lentils. Place lentils into pot along with 3 cups of water (or veg broth). Bring to a boil and season with salt. Reduce heat to medium/low and simmer, uncovered, for at least 40-45 minutes. Stir frequently & add touch of water if needed. The goal is to over-cook the lentils slightly (see pictures in post). Mash lentils slightly with a spoon when ready.
2. Toast walnuts at 325F for about 8-10 minutes. Set aside. Increase oven temp to 350F.
3. Whisk ground flax with water in a small bowl and set aside.
4. Heat a teaspoon of olive oil in a skillet over medium heat. Sautee the garlic and onion for about 5 minutes. Season with salt. Now add in the diced celery, shredded carrot and apple, and raisins. Sautee for about 5 minutes more. Remove from heat.
5. In a large mixing bowl, mix all ingredients together. Adjust seasonings to taste.
6. Grease a loaf pan and line with parchment paper. Press mixture firmly into pan. Whisk glaze ingredients and then spread half on top of loaf. Reserve the rest for a dipping sauce.
7. Bake at 350F for 40-50 minutes, uncovered. Edges will be lightly brown.

Vegan woman are gifts from GOD 🌱😍✨ and when she’s tapped in spiritually with a strong inner game - I’d move mountains ⛰ 🌱💪🏽
piantala di aver paura dei tuoi desideri. Continua a credere nei tuoi talenti e nei tuoi orizzonti; liberati dalle zavorre emozionali; getta le aspettative altrui giù da un dirupo. Concediti il perdono e concedilo agli altri. Ricordati sempre che, prima di essere madre, sei stata una figlia...e lo sei ancora.
accetta solo quelle sfide che valorizzano il tuo potenziale, che nutrono la tua evoluzione personale. Lascia perdere il resto... Ama a perdifiato e sii radicata e consapevole, per poterti donare agli altri nella migliore versione di te stessa. 🙏🌀🌟

I’m not writing this post as a doctor,
healer, spiritual teacher or any other
avatar that may be attached to me.
I’m writing it as a seeker. I’m not self
realized, awakened or enlightened,
not even close. I am where I am, still
learning to love, surrender & believe.🤗
The wisdom I share comes from intuitive
channeling; my embodiment of that
wisdom is an ongoing journey.✨
Peering into social media from an
external portal can be misleading,
especially on ‘spiritual’ pages.
I would like to balance out any
misperceptions by opening up
more in future content about
ego cycles I’m currently evolving.
▪️Emotional Eating ✍🏽
This is a numbing cycle that started in
my childhood & reached full blown binge
status during my years of mental illness.
While I‘ve made major strides with the
impulsive eating, this is still an area of
my life that is far from effortless. The
busier my session schedule has gotten,
the more challenging it’s been to not
reach for some vegan junk after a day
of heightened intuitive presence
& emotional intensity.
I had a total of 31 sessions this week.
I reached for snacks on 2 evenings.
This isn’t good or bad, it just is. I refrain
from judging my choices. The important
perspective is that it’s a temporary cycle
I’m intent on evolving, while having
compassion for myself as
I work through it.
It’s not the snacks that are an issue,
it’s the reason I’m choosing them that
highlights inner work. I reach for them
out of comfort, to bring down my
presence a few notches, to stuff
down the suffering I experienced
from energetic interactions that day.
There are also deeper self limiting
beliefs attached to past trauma that
continue to subconsciously sabotage
my physical evolution.
Behind the scenes of sessions &
content, this is a small glimpse of
what I’m evolving in the quietude of
my solitude, & it is JOYful. This has
been my daily focus for 4 years &
I wouldn’t want it any other way.
Self Evolution is a patient journey of
inner dissection, a dialogue between
the fear tugging us back & the love
bounding us forward; a beautiful
cosmic dance between
ego and Spirit.♥️
Cuéntame, cuéntame, cuéntame
Todo lo que te has imaginado
Cúmple, cúmpleme, cúmpleme
Que para complacerme eres mi esclavo
No me sirve un caballero
Sino cumple mis deseos
Bésame, bésame, bésame
Y yo te llevo a tu final feliz
Y yo te llevo a tu final feliz 🎤💃
You can't force people to give a shit about you or your kids.
It's hard and it's not fair and people are fucking stupid.
It's their loss.
Sending love to anyone in this situation!
Be proud that you are a steady dependable person in the kids lives.
Don't beg anyone, you are worth more!
'Friends are the family you choose'
Ain't that the truth?
Happy Saturday lovely people!
Wrote this yesterday and got so many positive comments about it! So I thought I should share it here :) I hope you are having an amazing day 💚😊
Take care of your body, it is the only place you have to live 💜

El arte es una coleccion de el sentir
Toques de vivencias humanas
Expresion de el alma
Y conclucion de el pensamiento
Art is a collection of the feeling
Touches of human experiences
Expression of the soul
And conclusion of the thought
I’d say the proof is in the (dairy-free) puddin’ ☺️! Besides the major health benefits of rarely getting sick (haven’t seen a doctor for a cold/flu or taken prescription medication for any illness in five years now), my chronic allergies going away (doctor told me I’d have to take two allergy pills every day for the rest of my life), and sky-high energy levels (I feel sorry for my coworkers when I’m over the top...lol), the beauty benefits of a plant-based diet are unreal!!! Some of the things I’ve noticed:
👩🏼Even skin tone with way more color/life
👩🏼Clearer skin with a natural glow 👩🏼Skin is never dry even without lotion 👩🏼Fuller lips (free Botox!)
👩🏼Brighter eyes 👩🏼Face is defined & not bloated/puffy
👩🏼Crow’s feet around my eyes have “disappeared.” (More free Botox!)
👩🏼Dropped ten pounds while eating all day long and without compulsively counting calories like I used to
You really can’t argue with concrete results like this...but, to each his own.
I love everyone without judgment and don’t consider myself to be a radical vegan.
I just like to share what has worked so well for me and what has tremendously enhanced MY life. If you’re tired of being sick and tired (like I finally was) you might want to consider giving a plant-based diet a try!
The book that changed my life is called Skinny Bitch. This book is all you will need to get started—trust me! 🌟 Much love, Tara 🌟 🧡💜💚(Feel free to tag your friends that are on the fence!)💚💜🧡
