Quote of the Day 6/6/14

                                                         Quote of the Day

                How grateful I am to create a treasure chest of memories of the heart with you!

Dear Lovers,
                Are you ready to eat foods that provide maximum energy and nutrients to increase the libido and strengthen your loving relationship through intimacy?  Eating organic whole foods, especially whole grains and vegetables in season brings our bodies back into harmony with nature.  Variety and color in your meal plan stimulates your body, mind, and spirit.  Satisfaction, through eating this way, allows you to relax, be playful, create emotional calmness, and enjoy your most intimate moments.  You’ll notice your heart center more open to you, ready to give and receive in a more sensitive and passionate way.  What you eat also affects your reproductive organs in a positive way.  Your overall sexual energy increases as a result.
                Remember to add love to your food preparation.  It sets the tone to the quality of your meal and your relationship.
                Today we will focus on a recipe that will emphasize water energy, the energy that supports our sexual vitality
Azuki Bean Vegetable Soup

1 inch piece of kombu (seaweed)
1 cup of azuki beans (sorted, rinsed, and soaked overnight)
7 cups of filtered water
1 cup butternut squash (diced)
1 cup sweet potato (diced)
1 celery stalk (diced)
1 red onion (diced)
¼ head of savoy cabbage (diced)
3 teaspoons of barley miso (dissolved)

Place kombu on the bottom of the pan.  Next place the drained azuki beans.  Add water and bring to a boil, uncovered over a high heat.  Boil for 7 minutes.  Then add the vegetables.  Cover and reduce heat to low and simmer until the beans are softened and vegetables are tender, about 35 minutes.  At this time, you are ready to remove about 2 to 3 tablespoons of liquid to dissolve the miso.  Stir the miso into the soup and let simmer about 4 minutes.   Garnish with parsley.  Serve hot.
