Hazelnut Milk Banana Mango Parfait

 “Eat food, not too muchmostly plants.”

Good real food.

Eat when hungry, “If you’re hungry enough to eat an apple.”, then you’re hungry.

Eat intuitively, minimally processed, and with intent to nourish your body.  It’s the most important thing you own, and the only place you have to live.

Here’s a recipe:

Homemade Hazelnut Banana Parfait

Makes 2 mason jar portions

Ingredients:

Hazelnut Milk Custard:

1/3 cup hazelnuts, soaked in 1 cup water overnight (at least 8 hours)

3 dates soaked in water (2 hours)

1 teaspoon vanilla extract

2 tablespoons chia seeds

3 egg yolks

pinch of salt

nutmeg

Toasted Coconut Oats: (Toast these mixed together in toaster oven for 10ish mins, watch em, they burn quick, mix em round a little bit to rearrange for EVEN TOASTING)

1/2 cup rolled oats

1/3 cup shredded coconut (much tastier if self-shredded: “chop your own wood and it warms you twice.”)

Add-ins: mashed banana with cinnamon, coconut butter, cut up mango, crushed hazelnuts.

Prep:

After soaking hazelnuts, put them in a food processor with the water, dates (and soaking water), vanilla, and salt. Blend that shit.

Put the hazelnut milk mixture in a pot on the stove and warm slightly.

Image

Whip the egg yolks a bit, and then slowly (or not, it worked fine for me without being too ‘one yolk at a time’ as long as the hazelnut milk isn’t too hot, and yolks not too cold) add yolks while whisking the mix.

Image

Whisk for round 4 mins, then put into the bottom layer of the mason jars.  Add in one tablespoon to each jar of chia seeds.

Image

Add in a layer of toasted oats and coconut.  Save some of the mix for another layer.

Image

Now mash the banana with some cinnamon and slice up the mango.

Image

Dollop in that shit.

Image

My mum didn’t like this part, but I added in a teaspoon of coconut butter, probs would’ve been better if it was melted on top the morning of eating, but I put it in the night before so it was hard (that’s what she said).

Image

Top it with oats and crushed hazelnuts.

Image

Image

That’s it that’s all!  Voila:

Itchy Feet

ImageWhen arches find too sturdy ground,
Monotony binds my heartbeat’s sound,
Comfort and settling so easily found,
When unsteady footing I fiercely hound.

Itchy and restless I soon become,
When comfort zone, is challenged none.
Childhood indulgence, purposeful fun,
Magnetic adventure, soul search begun.

With self-assurance, surrender I choose,
To the sublime tinglings of my jubilant youth,
What rich gifts I harness, invest and amuse,
For abundance and growth, I light the fuse.

Tune in, turn on, sharpen my wit,
Unstable terrain seek I, true grit,
Aim, intent, authentically fit,
With equanimous spirit, soul, flame-lit. 

Grow, expand, and take up space,
Give in to my heart’s hungry taste,
Ferocious appetite, ikigai’s haste,
Will journey my soles to resplendent grace.
