1. Stand up for love. We vacillate constantly between love and fear. It’s exhausting. Fear is a pattern, love is a choice. Take notice when you are shutting down or expanding in your heart. That alone will create a huge, positive change in your life and in the world. Move deeply into your heart, connect in with all the beautiful things that make your heart expand. Push out love to all your cells, into your etheric field and out into the world. It is a good act of service. Love it all, even the stuff that hurts. Love is divine.
Of all the blissful things I love to do, cooking for is high on the list. Lucky for me, I had the pleasure of cooking for my sister-friend, Nicole the other night. Nicole is transitioning from a strict 13 year vegan diet to one that includes some animal fats. Having recently transitioned myself, Nicole entrusted me to make her a beautiful meal that would be healing, easy to digest and oh so delicious. Mission accomplished.
I won’t go into all the details of the meal but I do want to share my interpretation of Olive Tapenade. It was a total home run, especially with fresh cherry tomatoes and fragrant thyme from my garden. You can put this tapenade on just about anything from fish to raw crackers to steamed greens. We managed to eat almost a whole jar in one sitting. Make lots.
