When the day begins with challenges in personal daily details or just the world at large, I am reminded that all is not lost as I listen to the lyrics of Matthew West "Mended" I can choose to be fearful and emotionally spin....stuck on the flaw instead of the fix......or I can reach for my true purpose and participate in creating beauty from ashes. Today I choose to savor the radiant colors of vibrant health in food I am blessed to consume.
So....fresh mint growing out of a bowl on the porch...blended together with fresh berries...... sliced lime, lemon, ginger, apple, and Moringa (super food greater then kale...) sprinkled in with ice & apple cider vinegar. All ingredients pack a powerful punch of nutrients, cleansing, & balancing agents.
I first discovered Moringa on a music trip to Costa Rica. I watched our host family use throughout their daily menu. I know this opportunity bestowed on me was not random.....to experiment with the fresh leaves, dried, made into smoothies, vegies, pancakes, or sprinkled on our meats as we would Italian herbs or salt. Blended into smoothies with a sprinkle of Chi...which leads me to the here and now thankful for the teachable moment and memory. Who knew back then in 2013.. I was learning to use one of natures amazing super foods..!
