Welcome to a fresh Conscious Life instalment,
For the last two weekends I have loved being at the market on Saturday morning, sharing sweet, nourishing, raw chocolate and treats and meeting interesting people interested in whole foods, so if that's you, welcome!
As much as I'd love to do it all, I've had to admit to myself, I just can't. I do look forward to having the space and energy to return to the markets when the time is right. So with a fresh perspective, I'm a mother first, committed to feeding my family nourishing whole food as close to it's natural state as possible. A big part of this holistic way of enjoying health and happiness is slowing down. Taking the time to cook from scratch, to spend time with my family, to relax! Feeling stressed and rushed seems a part of life these days, but I have made a choice, I do not want to feel like that constantly. Getting things done will come second to peace of mind.
So I apologise if this price list and newsletter has taken a little longer to get to you, but I invite you to slow down too. Nothing is more important than your health and happiness, so relax! You deserve it! Take the time to nourish yourself and your loved ones, with time spent together, doing things that nourish your whole being and with organic whole foods, cooked with extra time and love.
Enjoy the recipes and musings, take a look at the price list and just reply to this email with what you'd like to order.
Kiwi Chia Jam with Cardamon and Lime
The yellow kiwi fruit I used are so sweet! No need for honey in this chia jam and I added a squeeze of lime and a touch of spice for an extra tang to balance the sweet.
2 cups chopped yellow kiwifruit
juice of half a lime
1/2 tsp cardamon
1/4 cup water
1/4 cup chia seeds
Roughly blend all ingredients except chia seeds, transfer to a jar and stir through chia seeds, leave in the fridge to set.
We devoured this jam on a batch of coconut pancakes, the recipe on the petite-kitchen.com blog, if you haven't had a look yet, do! Delicious, wholesome food, recipes and stunning photographs.
We are One Conscious Life.
