Decadent Warm Fig Delight

Recipe, Design and Photo by Suzanne

This is an amazing delicious dessert perfect for cold winter nights after dinner. In this recipe I put everything into a beautiful earthen bowl and warmed in the oven. To the bowl I put chunks of vegan chocolate cake and broken pieces of vegan muffins in the bowl. I added chopped figs, slivered almonds, crushed walnuts, coconut flakes, chia seeds, dark chocolate pieces, goji berry, a dab of coconut oil. I mixed together Almond Coconut Milk with a dash of Vanilla Almond Milk and I mixed in some Cacao then poured it over the cake seeds mixture and popped into a warm / hot oven to heat up and slightly bake. Careful when removing from the oven as the bowls will be hot to touch. Top with freshly chopped fig and serve hot to warm. Oh man this was goooooooooooood. The chocolate pieces melted into the cakes and milk – so decadent. Delicious. Some variations / alternatives could be: you could use Coconut Milk from tin or Coconut Cream; perhaps a cap of liquor (not for the kids though) that you enjoy dripped on top. Knock it out of the park with anything you want to add and wow your family and friends with an incredible heart warming dessert or treat.

This is an awesome option for any body out there looking for a boost of nutrition before their flight.

One Happy Vegan

One happy Vegan One year later. Here I am 40lbs lighter, definitely much much much fitter of mind and body. I feel calmer of spirit less worried more free – definitely I feel freer. My skin and hair have improved out of sight – hey I am 55 – I can’t believe my hair growth and sheen with a natural color improvement for over a year now – my hair is so soft instead of old and wired.  The sheer power of life improvement has been incredible and beats out any books I have read or anything I have done so far. This lifestyle has opened my eyes and my heart in at times stunning revelations. The space afforded to me now in my life is big and I am able to re org my entire life anytime and in any direction I want. I love being Vegan. Vegan is “youthing “me (Mimi Kirk says it well on her website “Young On Raw Food” and I really dig the results! I thought that I was well in my past life (pre-vegan) but ah no – I was not. Amazingly I thought I ate well. Another shocking revelation was that I wasn’t as clearly the two paths of lifestyle offer very different results. That is clear now.  Today I am very well strong healthy and happy. I can do anything. I can ride my bike in the rain. I can take alot of pressure and not lose it. My new found wellness is right on! Get into the Vegan Lifestyle right now and then don’t look back. It’s all about the food!

Sweating your way to good health ….

Welcome …

 

This is awesome information on the benefits of sweating and the sauna as a tool. To note, we sauna at least 3 – 4 sometimes 5 times a week. At first our clothes stunk of toxins. Fast forward to now we all enjoy the healthy benefits of a dry sauna sometimes combined with a steam.

After our workout in the gym which is cardio focused, the Stair Master is my all time favorite for changing and challenging your body, combined with some weights at 15 reps each, we always finish with a sauna and a warm shower always finishing with cold.
