Workin' on my #parfait #foodstyling with a little help from my sidekick and her mini hands 👋🏻💗
So... since I began this #wellness and #food journey, I knew that for me- being in the kitchen and cooking was a form of meditation. It calms me. It keeps me present. It's almost a spiritual experience. 🙌🏻
Then came the food styling - the concentration on colors, plating, textures and angles. Food become not only about taste and smell- but the visual aspect as well. It's double the work, double the prep, but double the fun.
The more time I spend preparing my #plantbased meals, the longer I am in the kitchen and therefore, the calmer my mind.
Cooking, for me, is #meditation
And if anyone says that #meditating is only done by sitting like a Buddha and concentrating on one's breath, is mistaken.
Don't get me wrong, there's nothing wrong with the classic form of meditation. In fact, I've tried very hard for many years to accomplish a meditative state in stillness but it just isn't for me.
Therefore, THIS ⬆️ is my meditation.

Today's late breakfast consisted of, if you're wondering:
A parfait layered with (from bottom up) chopped peaches and blackberries.
A chocolate smoothie made with:
1 frozen banana
1/2 cup almond milk
1 handful spinach
1/4 cup homemade #rawtella (raw cacao, maple syrup, hazelnuts, vanilla bean, walnuts, coconut oil, Himalayan salt and a bit of water blended in a #vitamix )
1 tbsp hemp seeds
3 tbsp raw cacao
And the final layer is a simple strawberry and white chia jam. My daughter added a few dried rose petals and there ya go.
