Darkness turns to light

I took the hard way, I have always needed to know things on my own terms even when it hurt. Now that I have a better grasp of the universe and my charts it is no surprise to me that I always chose to learn the lessons first handed and not just be taught them. I am truly grateful for each lesson I have lived, each moment of pain and sadness and each tear I have and will continue to shed because my past allows me to help people who are going through similar stories.

Blue Lagoon Smoothie

Over the last month I have been cleansing my body of heavy metals. I removed the permanent retainers I got 8 years ago after having reconstructive jaw surgery from my mouth when I realized they were negatively impacting my health and causing inflammation to my face and jaw as well as throughout my body since the metal was in my mouth and then spread through my system.

As I reread my words from a few months back I realized that this was the story I needed to tell, with a few minor changes I want to share a piece of my heart and story with you.

Chickpea, Date and Cauliflower Tagine with Couscous

Over the course of the last few years I have changed my approach to how I both eat and cook food. I do most of my shopping locally and try to buy as much organic as I can. While I used to shop once a week and have waste at the end of the week I now aim to shop on market days so I get the best produce of the day. With that said sometimes you can't get to the farmers market, or grocery store let along leave your house or office at a normal hour so this recipe is perfect for one of those days.
