2 tbs chili powder
1/2 tsp real salt

2 Tbsp hemp seeds (Good Earth)
1 small pkg of edemame beans (shelled/Good Earth)
Organic frozen peas (Costco)

Mana Bread

Date-Manna Bread

For this recipe, use organic eikhorn wheat. Much of our wheat is now treated with the herbicide Roundup to “ripen it quickly.” This kills most of the seeds and they will not sprout. Put 4 cups of organic wheat in a plastic ice cream pail that has had holes punched in the lid. A large jar would work as well. Soak the wheat for a few minutes; then invert the container to drain most of the water. Repeat this several times as necessary. When the sprouts are ½ to ¾ the length of the grains of wheat, they are ready. In a warm house, it is possible to start the process before supper, repeat the soaking before going to bed and then again the next morning; the wheat will usually be ready that evening. If it is ready too soon, put it in the refrigerator until you can use it.

2 cups sprouted organic eikhorn wheat
flour as needed for molding consistency
½ lb. dates
¼ tsp. cloves
¼ tsp. cinnamon

Preheat oven to 300°F.

Place the sprouted wheat in a food processor and whirl it until it is ground up and pasty. Add flour until the mixture is doughy. Fold in the dates, raisins, and spices and process a little more to mix. Form into small loaves or one larger loaf. Bake for about 2½ hours. This is a great recipe to use up food storage items.

Eating Well...a personal journey.

 Early on in my health crisis journey I had a question. How do I feed myself and my little family organic,mostly raw diet and keep to a descent budget and not have chefs that cook for me. Quickly I felt some responsibility for my health and family but I also knew it was possible without living so luxurious. All my mom friends would say the same story, " you have to be rich, or its too expensive, or I could never cook that way, I don't like to be in the kitchen. Well I knew it was part of my journey to figure this out and on my own for me and my family's health,I too didn't want to spend hours in the kitchen and had to stick to a budget. Through careful thought, meal planning, list making,I now know it is absolutely possible and even simple to shop, cook and eat this way.In response to my friends...I asked their budget for a family of 5 with a teenager that included maybe a supplement,organic raw foods,household items and a food storage item....the result was we had the same if not less budget a week. So I would gently say its possible and easy if you choose to feed you and your family this way.
Sat Nam, What ?

.What does Sat Nam Moma mean? Well, yes I am a mom hence Moma at the end. Sat Nam is sanskrit  Kundalini yoga mantra or chant that is usually done at the end of class. The reason this particular mantra rang in me is because I love its meaning. Sat means "TRUE or Truth" and Nam means "Name" together it means "True Self" or my name/identitiy is "Truth".  As long as I have lived I have quickly picked up or discerned when things or people feel a bit off or if they felt clear, genuine,pure or true. With any message or advice I have learned from others,from experience or living I hope to deliver or pass on only things I feel are right,pure or true. As you are embarking on your own personal learning experience or journey in life, I encourage all I meet to not just take advice but to pray, discern and think for themselves if it is right, pure or true for you. You will not fail if you follow this pattern first. I believe we are not ultimately in charge or in control of our life but when you acknowledge you can be led by a higher source first, that is when your life unfolds as it should.
