Learn…

I found this on internet. And it’s beautifull & wise.


After a while you learn the subtle difference between holding a hand and chaining a soul
and you learn that love doesn’t mean leaning
and company doesn’t always mean security.
And you begin to learn that kisses aren’t contracts
and presents aren’t promises
and you begin to accept your defeats with your head up and your eyes ahead
with the grace of woman, not the grief of a child
and you learn to build all your roads on today
because tomorrow’s ground is too uncertain for plans and futures have a way of falling down in mid-flight.
After a while you learn that even sunshine burns if you get too much
so you plant your own garden and decorate your own soul
instead of waiting for someone to bring you flowers.
And you learn that you really can endure
you really are strong
you really do have worth
and you learn
and you learn with every goodbye,
you learn…

Moon day Porridge

This moon day was specifically rainy and cold in the morning here in the Netherlands. So I made this porridge which I have wanted to try out for a while. Quinoa porridge.

You might know already I absolutely love porridges, so I always look for new recipies and variations. Oatmeal porridge is where my heart really lies, but this one is delicious and a wonderful option if you are avoiding or doing a cleanse where grains are temporarily left out of the diet.

Ingredients:

1C quinoa
1/2tsp cinnamon
1/4tsp cardamom
1/2tsp ginger
pinch of salt
2C water
1C preferred nutmylk
1apple – grated
handful of raisins
hemp seeds

How to:
Rince quinoa and cook with 2C of water. Add spices. When the water gets less start adding nutmylk a little bit at a time, and stir once in a while, untill the quinoa porridge gets a thick and creamy consistency.
When the porridge ready, turn off the stove, add apple and raisins and cover for a few minutes. The apple will not cook, but become just nice and soft to digest more easily.
Decorate with some hemp seeds y voilá!

You can sweeten the porridge with any preferred sweetener.
