Happy belated New Year dear healthy foodies!

The Christmas gluttony has been overcome and now rejuvenating things such as Miso Soup and Sprouted Bread can take centre stage. What better way to introduce two alkalising, balancing, grounding, nourishing dishes such as these infused with Trevor Brown's homemade music?! Miso soup is supposedly one of the best hang over cures, but I enjoy it best when I've eaten too much decadent food. I reckon it could be a good time for miso soup in January for all of us, right? Here are two videos for YOU! Check out trevorbrownmusic.com for more of this talented multi-instrumentalist.

I hope you are feeling positive and inspired about this brand new year. I've started with a 5Rhythms dance workshop, which for me always brings the essentials to light, awakens curiosity and determination to live the life I want to live, right now. Not later, now. Besides moving ones body all day brings out a strong appetite too, which in other words means a creative natural flow of recipe ideas. Obviously this supports my main mission, which is to finish my first cookbook and finally brings me to my point: I need your HELP AIUTO HILFE, because I still need more sexy food photos for the cookbook! See below how you can help:

Cook, Shoot & Win a copy of my upcoming cookbook! Here's how: All you have to do is make one of my recipes and photograph the results, and if the photos make it into the book you get a free copy. How does that sound for a sweet deal? Contact me to find out what recipes are awaiting you or to find out more. galasorganickitchen@gmail.com

Enjoy the two new videos and may you fast and feast to your liking. I enjoy swinging to the extremities of the pendulum, always looking for a sense of equilibrium, whether it be making a wholesome meal after an evening of too much lush food and wine, or cooking up a banquette after a day cycling and hiking in the black forest when starvation reached its peak. We can always make decision that serve our bodies best. In my opinion Macrobiotics understands this the best: The teachings that if you eat very salty foods it will make you crave very sweet foods and vice versa, is so very useful and was one of my first tools to manoeuvre out of bad food habits. Try it out and see if it's true for you, it certainly is for me. When I eat a burger and chips I will inevitably be dying for an icy cold kombucha or something similar that's sweet. When I eat too much fruit I go searching, like a wild boar, for salty roasted nuts or crackers. Good luck with your food addictions and cravings, I know about these too well. Therapy could be useful too ;) Wishing a happy life, now YES!
