nurture

Sometimes life can get a bit surreal...when this happens I remind myself that I must nurture myself. For me that means a peaceful home with sun streaming in through very dirty windows (that is concrete mud splatter you see on the panes, from when we poured our patio a few weeks back - it started snowing and freezing the day after and we now have to wait till spring to clean windows!). I also learned how to make home-made almond milk.

This is my method:
  • Soak one cup of almonds overnight
  • Drain the soaked almonds thoroughly and rinse very well
  • Get rid of any loose skins
  • Whiz in the Vitamix (or a good blender) with 2 1/2 cups water and one cup of coconut water
  • Strain through a nut bag or cheese cloth into a jar.
This is how I drink it:
  • 1 1/2 cups almond milk
  • six to eight frozen strawberries
  • one teaspoon of maca powder
  • whiz all in a vitamix or blender
