I grew up in somewhat of a food-centric family, which has catapulted me into what some may describe as a “foodie”.
As a child, we ate dinner at my grandparent's house almost weekly. My grandpa Armand would create elaborate spreads of different salads and hors d’oeuvres. Platters brimming with vegetables, antipasto, sauces and whatever creations he dreamed up were omnipresent — every, single, meal. His hearty, homemade soup was a welcome favorite in during cold Chicago winters.
Our family meals would often entail long discussions of meals previously enjoyed, restaurants visited, and would likely include plans of the next meal to be consumed, even before the present one had ended.
Food was my grandfather’s love language. His meals were revered, and if you were lucky enough to have him cook for you, it would likely be a meal you’d remember a lifetime.
Typically when talking about how food and the chakras, there is little information as to how to work with the crown chakra, the most spiritual connection point on our bodies, as food just does not balance it as does the others.
We've all heard that carrots are good for the eyes, but did you know that purple carrots are good for your third eye?
As we start moving further up the chakra system, the use of food as a balancing agent becomes less prevalent. Though the throat chakra is the first of the spiritual chakras (throat, third eye and crown) and responds very well to proper hydration.
Have you ever wondered where the phrase term heart-healthy diet comes from?
