February, the month of L O V E love!
Learning to love is learning to live! Learning to live is the biggest surprise those who attend my training discover. And when it comes to food, tuning into the foods that are in season helps us tune into our own true nature.
In Ayurveda we say “you become what you eat.” In yoga we say “you become what you eat and how you live.” We all know how foods shift our moods, but have you thought about how your food choices effect your relationships?
To live Sattvic means to live with goodness in your heart, peace in your mind, truth in your soul, and balance in all your life. This includes food choices that are pure, wholesome, nutritious, and digestible. Learn to live love by preparing foods with love and for those you love.
Lucky for me, grapefruits are in season, I always seem to be craving these juicy citrus fruits this time of year. As an added bonus- they help boost my thyroid!
Here’s a recipes so easy, do we even call it a recipe? Incredibly easy to shop for and prepare. May we all eat well, sleep well, and live well! Give this a try and let me know what you think.
With a whole lot of love and a great big hug, Marianne
This dish looks impressive and delicious to eat!! It’s super easy to make, requiring just a little patience. Best to prep a few hours before enjoying, even up to 24 hours before enjoying. A family tradition classic. When I am not traveling, this is my breakfast fruit. When I am giving a dinner party, this is my pre-dessert super easy dinner party treat.
- 1 grapefruit
Cut each grapefruit section apart, then peel away the pith (white layer) from each
- 1 tablespoon sugar
Sprinkle sugar onto grapefruit cut sections just before serving – this leaves a sugar crystal crunch
- Optional Add-on’s – 1 T pistachios coarsely chopped, or, 1 T pomegranate seeds
