LUCUMA MATCHA LATTE + Love Links

A warm hello,
first of all I want to thank you for being here and follow my journey even though there hasn’t been a lot going on here lately. Second, I want to share my current Warm-Tonic-Addiction with you. Another reason to be grateful: Being able to make myself such a beverage with such amazing benefits and TASTE! Matcha + a good source of fat gives me sustainable energy, optimal brain function and focus. I don’t even miss coffee (I am not totally avoiding it, but don’t feel the urge these days).

It is so perfect before or with a breakfast. My life has become full and busy, yet another manifestation to be thankful, as the fullness is actually a state of richness. My days are filled with things and people I love, but it also often means late work hours and rare moments of being at home long enough to ground and enjoy my space. So I am making the effort to get up earlier (the Spring weather helps a lot!) to really enjoy myself, my surrounding and use the extra time to just sit, breathe and be. And it is so rewarding and powerful! I had my morning rituals before, but to be honest it was a lot of the “go” and “do”-mode. My new practice is more a gateway between dreamland and life & this is when the frothy and sexy Matcha Latte recipe was created.

What I also noticed: total clarity alongside my morning meditation. I love to make myself a frothy, luxurious tonic like this Matcha Latte and drink it during Meditation. Mornings are sacred and really special to me, I like the magical quiet and alone time. Having rituals in the morning you look forward to, make it easy to stay up a little earlier to gain some important time and set the tone for the rest of the day. A delicious Matcha Drink may become one of your Morning rituals? A sweet drink for long-lasting energy without making you jittery + perfect for Meditation. Taste the sweetness of life! I hope you find some special time just for yourself today!

SUMMER DRINKS – FIG MANGO LASSI

12

Bom dia!
Writing from an inspiring little place in Portugal, surrounded by all kinds of succulents, plants in every green shade and fig trees everywhere. I am in paradise! My better half and I have been living off of sun ripened/spoiled tomatoes, juicy melons and all kinds of stone fruit – enjoying summers harvest to the fullest. It is a whole new world eating it all ripe and local! Now slowly the first figs start to show up and I have been adding them to our park or beach picnics and recently adding them to my summer lassis. Lassis are a great way to cool down on a hot summers day, as a snack or breakfast. This balancing drink has ripe mango, coconut yogurt, turmeric, green figs to transfer you to another level of satiated cells vibrating with vitamins, hormone support, plant protein, minerals for a surge of energy & support of hormones. A celebration and praise of the second half of summer. Cheers to that with creamy good fat fig + mango lassi glasses – travel on sun beams!
