Happy Monday lovely,
One day has passed since we were re-united in Amsterdam and what a day! We have already managed to enjoy a super delicious key lime pie (recpie is below), have a wheatgrass shot each, stroll around a bit in town, have a delicious lunch at a vegan place in Jordaan and visit a bikram yoga studio TWICE. Julie has been going to the bikram yoga for a week and now we are doing it together – and what an amazing workout! We are both pretty newbies when it comes to yoga but we think we have found our thing. We enjoy it so much and cannot wait til we become more flexible (not really there yet) and soon we will hopefully be able to stand on our heads! 😉
Julie made this Sensational Key Lime Pie to celebrate our up-coming time in Amsterdam together. This cake was seriously soooo delicious! It is a must try – we promise. We sincerely think everyone would enjoy this cake.. something else would be impossible! We are talking about pure pleasure for all your senses. It is creamy, rich and tasty with the perfect balance of tartness and sweet tickling your tongue. You just have to give it a go!
– Brazil nuts
– 3/4 cup lime juice (about 4 limes)
– 1 1/2 cup avocado (about 1 avocado but it is of course depending on the size)
– 1/2 cup agave syrup or raw honey
– 1/2 tsp vanilla powder
– 1/2 cup coconut cream/oil
When you make the pie filling all the measures mentioned are to fill a smaller pie plate so use the proportions as your guidelines.
Crust: You start off by making the crust. Place all the ingredients in your food processor until the nuts are in preferable chunks and the ingredients stick together. Divide it into your pie form (make sure you don´t eat it all which is very tempting).
Pie filling: Place all the ingredients except the coconut cream in your blender. Add the coconut cream at last and blend until creamy. Now it´s just to pour the filling into your pie crust and let it chill until firm. This can take some time, 6-8 hours, but totally worth it!
Decorate the cake with kiwi or any other fruit and now it´s just to ENJOY BIG TIME!
We hope you have had a wonderful new start of the week and are feeling in good harmony where you are at this very moment. Nothing is more important than to take your time to breathe and be present. Let go of everything and everyone around you and only focus on yourself. When you are in balance with yourself you can take every encounter to higher and better levels and make more out of everything in life! Nothing is more precious than YOU feeling good and from here you can radiate and give from your abundance of love, happiness and peace in mind.
One of our greatest teachers is Echart Tolle. We definitely recommend you to get a hold over his books or listen to him on youtube. He has helped us tremendously on focusing on the present moment and we would probably not be where we are today if it was not for his teachings. He posted this on facebook a couple a days ago and we want to share it with you as today´s powerful words:
The philosopher Epictetus(AD55-135) wrote:
“People are not disturbed by things, but by the view they take of things.”
If you look closely, you will find that by far the greater part of any unhappiness in you is created not by situations, but by what your mind is saying about them. It’s created by the self-talk in your head. Such dysfunctional thinking strengthens the ego, but it weakens you. How to end it? Meet situations and people without judgment. Don’t indulge in mental movies about past and future. Give your fullest attention to the present moment without mentally labeling it. This is the arising of Presence, a new state of consciousness that frees your mind from its old conditioning. This new consciousness will give rise to a new world.
With our hearts,
Julie & Katrn
