Your Body Loves You

Have you noticed how loving and forgiving your body is? We are so blessed to have this amazing vehicle to take us through life.

Join us to explore a loving relationship with your body:

Yes, we can have a loving relationship with our body. That loving relationship comes when we deeply listen to our body’s promptings, just like we listen to what our best friends have to say to us. Our body wants the very best for us, always. It’s always guiding us back to balance and well-being.

To provide loving nourishment for our body, here is a recipe that is one of our favorites–Dried Green Split Pea Soup. It is easy to make and tastes so delicious.

Dried Green Split Pea Soup (Serves 4)

Green Split Pea Soup

2 cups green split peas
6 cups homemade vegetable stock or purified water
1 large onion, diced
4 to 6 garlic cloves, minced
3 inch piece fresh ginger, peeled and finely diced
4 celery stalks, cut in diagonal slices
3-inch piece of Kombu sea vegetable
1 ½ tablespoons avocado oil
½ teaspoon turmeric
½ teaspoon dried thyme or marjoram or both
½ teaspoon sea salt
Ground black pepper to taste
Pinch of red pepper flakes

Place green split peas in a large pan. Rinse and drain. Add veggie stock or purified water, onion, garlic, ginger, turmeric, avocado oil, thyme, marjoram and Kombu. Bring to a boil, cover and turn heat to low. Simmer for 1 hour or more.

As green split peas soften and begin to fall apart, add celery. Cook until split peas are fully soft. Add sea salt, black pepper and red pepper flakes. The Kombu falls apart naturally when the cooking is long. If it hasn’t, pull Kombu out and dice it fine, then stir it back into the split peas.

When you serve this dish a second or third time, you can vary the taste and texture by adding frozen green peas. They add a beautiful sweetness to the dish.
