Vegetarian Cooking workshop

'Nothing will benefit human health and increase chances for survival of life on Earth as much as the evolution to a vegetarian diet'.  Albert Einstein 

Blessed Sunday everyone

Recently I took part in a Sattvic Cooking Workshop. Sattvic or Yogic food is that which is pure, wholesome and clean meaning uncontaminated. 

We learnt how to make Moong Dal Salad, Poha (rice flakes with vegetables), Dry & Lquid Urd Dal, Palak Paneer ( spinach with cottage cheese), Chapati, Fresh Bael Sarbat, Juck Fruit Pullow and a Green Chutney. Below are some pictures I took. Thank Heavens for my wonderful camera Rocco!!!!!

Not a bad way to spend a Saturday morning, I would say. I am seriously beginning to really enjoy Vegetarian food. I mean before I would just eat, now I enjoy the process of eating, I watch exactly what I am putting into my system and have an awareness of the benefits as well as how I am eating, my mood. I have learnt to be silent when I eat and to give proper Thanks during this time.

Joy, Love and Food
