Retreat and Enjoy Garden Bounty Recipe

Quinoa Garden Tabbouleh Salad

I grew up on 150 acres in Tn. Summertime brings back lots of memories of the truck patches that we farmed, and all the fresh produce that we ate during summer. Tabbouleh is traditionally made with wheat but my new favorite version is Quinoa. Quinoa (pronounced keen wah) has all the amino acids and is a complete protein. It is very filling and gives you lots of energy. The plants on top are basil and purslane. Purslane is a weed that grows in my garden and is a vegetable source for omega fatty acids. So try my Tabbouleh Garden salad and let me know how you like it.

2 medium size fresh tomatoes
1 medium size cucumber
2-3 sprigs of fresh basil
2 sprigs of fresh mint
2-3 cups of cooked Quinoa
2-3 tbsps organic apple cider vinegar
1 tbsp celtic sea salt
2 large leaves of Chard cut fine
2 large leaves of Kale cut fine
2 tbsp organic olive oil
Handful of pine nuts

Mix this all together and add salt or vinegar to taste. Anyone care to guess what the flowers are? Enjoy and leave me a comment with your favorite garden recipe.

Tomorrow's post will have a wonderful video about the heart. During our retreats we focus on empowering our guests to reconnect to their heart and find inner peace. New research suggest that the heart is not only a organ that pumps blood tune in to see what else the heart does to support your health.

Turn on Your Inner Healer with a Healing Retreat

A Sedona Retreat will empower you with tools for inner peace. Are you looking for ways to stay healthy this summer, fall, and winter? Follow these tips to boost your immune system and say no to colds and flu.

1. Spend time in the sun each day without sun screen, and without sun shades. This boost your ability to absorb vitamin D. Spend 15-20 minutes early in the day before 10 am.

3. Drink at least eight glasses of water. Bless your water before drinking it and ask it to cleanse the toxins from your system. Visualize your community of cells full of love and smile an inner smile; fill your cells full of sunshine from the inside out.

Retreat to Create a Safe Haven

Is your relationship a safe haven or toxic dump? Couples enter a relationship with high expectations for years of passionate love and sex. At the same time both partners come with a large bag of emotional baggage from their childhood and past relationships. Retreat and Heal offers tools to clear your baggage and reconnect to love.

Next time you find yourself choosing old habits like shutting down and pushing your partner away; take a deep breath and choose to respond with love. In the moment you may feel that you will literally die if you face your fears and keep your heart open. Trust yourself to face the fear and watch it dissolve. Each and every time you allow yourself to face the fear it dissolves the habit of shutting down, and it loses it's control over you. You also build a new habit to keep your heart open to and share love.

Retreat and Heal offers retreats to connect you deeply to self love and empowers you with tools to express this love through relationships. Our retreats are now booked through the end of August the first dates available for retreat are Sept 2. Contact us now to book your fall visit to Sedona and Retreat and Heal.
