Chic Pea Salad
It’s been a little while since I have posted, been doing some travelling, focusing in on my business and really wanting to know the direction of my blog. How could I provide better and something different, as time passes I realize there are many similar blogs and recipes out there – how could I provide something different yet needed.
I love the fact that more and more people are waking up to real foods and live foods as I am seeing evidence of it in the grocery stores – one word of caution – DON”T believe everything you see on labels – especially words like ‘natural’ – it can be misleading as I am finding advertising and marketing – well – can be interesting!! Eat more real foods, live foods, and fresh foods in season!!
My tag line is Healthy is Cool – as much as I believe we need to be eating real foods clean foods as much as possible, I also highly believe in clean thoughts (easier when our food and our bodies are clean) and by that I mean empowering thoughts, more self love thoughts, aligning our energy with what we love to be doing – with who we really are. Not being in a state of anger, angst or frustration at people, ourselves or life. By not liking the food you eat yet you eat it as it’s suppose to be healthy, by not working a ‘job’ that you hate or is out of alignment with who you truly are, by not surrounding yourself with toxic, negative, drama loving people who bring you down or drain your energy!!
By being in total alignment with who and what you are about.
For me, it keeps getting easier and clearer – Entrepreneur, Superfoodie, Photographer – besides my kids, dog, beloved and friends – this is what fuels me, drives me, what I love to be, do and have and when I come from that place – it’s easy, fun and flowing. Now not each moment is perfect and I am only human – learning and making mistakes but I also love it!!
What better place to share than on my blog!!
After spending some time on my business, enjoying the sun, picnics and hanging with horses which was new to me and playing with so me superfood recipes it all started coming together!
So my recipes from now on are going to have more Super foods – what I love using and how you can incorporate more into your way of eating, what are they and why use them taking you more into plant based eating that is nutrient dense and healthy!
More Photography even outside of food and recipes and more thinking outside the box – life, job, being – I have really been untangling and questioning all the programming and advertising we have been fed our lives – and if you look around I don’t believe it’s working too well – so in other words a truth seeker – and breaking free from a Job if you feel you are entangled in one – life is too short to be spent chasing a pay check or doing something that does not fulfil you in any way shape or form, or better yet having to spend 8 hours a day with people you have nothing in common with………..so please come back for more and share this – and stop by and say hi – I love meeting new people and making connections with like minded people!!!
Anyways – on to the recipe – this one is easy, tasty and well get creative…….:)
Chic Pea Salad
- 1 cup Chic Peas soaked for 24 – 36 hrs then another 24 – 36 hrs rinsing them several times and letting them drain – there will be a sprout started
- 1 can Chic Peas (drained and rinsed) – still healthy and vegan just not raw
- juice of 1 Lemon
- 2 – 4 Garlic cloves minced (depends on you – I like more Garlic for this one)
- 2 – 4 tbsp of cold pressed Oil – Olive is good, my favorite these days is Camelina
- 1 cup finely chopped Parsley
- 1 Onion finely chopped
- Arugula chopped up
- Mix all together
- Pinch of Himalyan Sea Salt
In this recipe I also included chopped up Peppers, Dulse and Hemp.
I love to mix up the greens ie Spinach instead of Arugula as an example, or Green Onions, lots of herbs – it’s never the same dish twice except for the base of Lemon, Garlic, Oil and Chic Peas. So get creative and add lots of fresh, in season organic veggies and greens!!
Thanks for sharing this!!
