Fancy a rawesome apetizer?

zzzz-s-abraham-reachforthethoughtthatfeelsbetter-7521majHello lovely,

How are you? ūüôā¬†We are all good here in Sweden. Eventhough, we are in love with Amsterdam and see ourselves spend a part of our lives there we have to say it feels right¬†to be¬†where we are at the moment. We know we will be back sooner rather than later and it is important to follow our intuition.¬†This time it took us back to our parent¬īs place¬† ūüėČ (But sooo nice to spend quality time with¬†family¬†and good friends. Beyond grateful!)¬†¬†In the end, everything is a state of mind. Enjoy every single circumstance and it simply has to transform to something good. Sometimes it might require a bit of practice but with time it will be the most natural way of looking at life. It will come so natural to seek for the good that even if you might be surrounded by negativity you will be so trained not to get stucked within it. Instead always search for something good to hold on to. That will in the end attract even more good feeling experiences. We have tipped over and can nowadays¬†hardly think any negative thoughts. If we do so we get reminded¬†of¬†it very fast since we by now know how quick we are able to manifest both good and bad things. This also¬†means that we pretty fast become aware if we are stuck in a negative spiral since we suddenly get surrounded by more and more bad experiences. As soon as¬†we experience negative emotions and get stuck in it we try to seek for something that can neutralize our mood.¬†It pushes us to stop and calm down. We try to drop whatever we are doing and center ourselves. Nothing is more important than to be one with ourselves, or at least strive to be it. When we are in alignment with ourselves everything simply has to unfold with perfection. With this said, we are faaaar from perfect and can many times catch ourselves not up to speed with ourselves. That is a part of¬†our development¬†and as long as we are aware of the fact it is at least one step in the right direction. We have to remind ourselves not to be “perfect” and too hard on ourselves. We all have moments of confusion and loneliness but we are all on this journey together eventhough we might take different roads.

INGREDIENTS
– 1-2 zucchini

Red tomato pesto
–¬†about 15 sundried tomatoes (either you soak your own or you use sundried tomatoes in oil, as you prefer. )
Рabout 8 Cherry tomatoes
– 1 date (optional but gives a nice sweet touch)
– handful of fresh basil
– chili pepper
– garlic
– a pinch of salt
– pepper

Feel free to use whatever spices or herbs you have at home. Depending how tasteful you want it.

Put all the ingredients in your food processor and let it go until you get a nice texture. Put it in a bowl.

29 maj 2Refreshing cilantro cashew cream
– 2 cups of cashew nuts (soaked)
– 1-2 lime
– 1 tbl apple cider vinegar
– 1 clove garlic
– fresh cilantro
– pinch of cilantro

Place all the ingredients in your food processor (you can also use a blender) and process until it reaches a smooth consistency. You can add water to get the desired smoothness you wish for. We skipped this because we like it creamier. We usually try to add as little water as possible because it can tend not bring out all the flavours properly and we really enjoy tasting every single ingredient to its fullest. Also depending on how refreshing you wish to have your cream add as much as cilantro as you prefer. It is very individual and we personally love cilantro.25 maj 6

Chop your zucchini and put first one layer of your red tomato pesto and top with your refreshing cashew cilantro cream.

cilantro lime dip 2cilantro lime dip 1We also have some more recipes to share from Julie¬īs birthday weekend. This one is a Refreshing Cilantro Lime Dip which is perfect to serve with cucumbers, carrots, selery or whatever you fancy to dip with. It is a really yummie alternative for a healthy dip plus it is super easy to prepare.

INGREDIENTS
–¬†1,5 cups sunflower seeds
–¬†1,5 cups pumpkin seeds
– 1/2 – 1 cup lime
– 3-4 bunches of cilantro
– 4 tbl fresh parsley
– 1/4 tsp Cummin
– Salt and pepper (to taste)
– Chilli (to taste)
– Water (if needed)

Place all the ingredients except the cilantro and water in the food processor and process until smooth. You can add water as much as you want depending on how smooth you want the dip. Chop the cilantro one bunch at a time and add until you get an awesome refreshing flavour and consistency.  As for the spices the measures are just guidelines so feel free to play with them, there are no right and wrong.

Another tip is also if you wish to reduce the amount of seed intake to add extra cilantro instead. This dip is perfect now when the Summer is around the corner. Make sure you enjoy it with a bright smile because it is that good! ūüôā

Today¬īs powerful words by Joss Whedon:

“Passion, it lies in all of us, sleeping‚Ķ waiting‚Ķ and though unwanted‚Ķ unbidden‚Ķ it will stir‚Ķ open its jaws and howl. It speaks to us‚Ķ guides us‚Ķ passion rules us all, and we obey. What other choice do we have? Passion is the source of our finest moments. The joy of love‚Ķ the clarity of hatred‚Ķ and the ecstasy of grief. It hurts sometimes more than we can bear. If we could live without passion maybe we‚Äôd know some kind of peace‚Ķ but we would be hollow‚Ķ Empty rooms shuttered and dank. Without passion we‚Äôd be truly dead.‚ÄĚ

Love,
Julie & Katrin
