Prasadam meal

HK cardigan & scarf

my first prasadam meal with the talented Anne-lise. She is definitely a spiritual soul.

She taught me Prasadam , a practice of bhatki yoga, which is food that has first been offered to God. The idea behind prasadam is human are difficult to please and therefore we go to great length to fulfill our desires by eating things we shouldn't and it leads to killing of innocent animals. We become bound up in the material world through our eating resulting in bad karma.

Prasadam is considered “karma-free” food that is offered to satisfy God and not to satisfy our senses. Prasadam is to remind us to be thankful for all we have and teaches us of resistance and patience (as it is all vegan food and you have to wait a few minutes after offering the food to God before eating it and your not allowed to try the food before it's done, how hard it was for me!).

Coriander, almond, carrot, green apple, tomato, celery root, hemp seeds, flax seeds, sprouts, almonds (soaked in water for extra enzymes)
olive oil, lime, lemon, cumin, cinnamon, cayenne pepper
quinoa (a grain like plant, only its seed is edible, tastes like rice! but much healthier)

one of the yummies meals I've had
your body feels heavenly after

p.s. smoking heels or what?

That meal does look tasty. It would make a nice change of pace for me. I like hair swept up like that..I like it down too, there's a time for both.

Really smoking heels!
