Thinking About Coronavirus

What an amazing time we are living in. Our ability to interact with and know what most of the people of the world are experiencing is Wow!

A question I’ve been asking, “Is the coronavirus an opportunity or a disaster?” To me, I see that it’s how I think about the virus that determines my experience of it. I see I can, with a single thought, begin to build a reality that is fearful or full of possibility.

We talk about this more in this week’s video as well as what we can do to ensure our immune system is working at its best.

In the midst of great challenge, it is clear the more I trust life and rest in and accept how it unfolds, life guides me to expand into more of my potential. If I resist what is happening, I go into busy thinking about how things should be, could be, must be… and I suffer. What if there’s an inner wisdom we can trust for guidance? And what if it’s available to all of us all the time? For me, that wisdom leads again and again to a life I love, a life devoted to serving others.

I am deeply grateful.

Brown Rice Spiral Pasta With Vegan Alfredo Sauce

The recipe is a most delicious Alfredo Sauce that we use on brown rice spiral pasta. The sauce is made with cashews, nutritional yeast, onion, garlic, fresh lemon juice and sea salt and ground black pepper. We enjoy it probably once every 6 weeks or so.

Enjoy.

To Your Amazing Health,

Alfredo Sauce Recipe

Veggies Added to Pasta and Alfredo Sauce

1 medium onion, chopped
4 garlic cloves, chopped
1/2 cup vegetable broth or purified water
1/2 heaping cup raw cashews
3-4 tablespoons lemon juice
1/4 cup nutritional yeast
1 teaspoon fine sea salt
3/4 teaspoon ground black pepper

Add the onion, garlic and broth or water to a large pan over medium heat. Cook for about 8 minutes until very tender and the liquid has cooked off.
Add the onion and garlic to a blender with the cashews, lemon juice, nutritional yeast, sea salt and pepper. Blend on high for a couple of minutes until very creamy and smooth. Add more broth or purified water if necessary to reach desired consistency.
Taste and add more sea salt and pepper if desired.
Serve over brown rice pasta spirals. (Note: Be sure to add sea salt to your pasta water before cooking pasta to add flavor.)

We enjoy this sauce and pasta mixed with vegetables and dark leafy greens. We cooked sliced mushrooms with red pepper and spinach and a tablespoon of Avocado Oil. We dished it by topping the pasta with Alfredo Sauce, then adding the cooked vegetables and topping them with another drizzle of Alfredo Sauce. We always sprinkle the Cashew Parmesan on top to complete a pasta dish. The Cashew Parmesan recipe is here. Enjoy!
