Food Glorious Food

Food!

When we think of the base chakra, we often seek food to comfort this chakra too. All chakras have their ‘specific’ appetites and will lend towards different foods when in their overactive and underactive forms.



It is fun to observe already what you have been gravitating towards in the base chakra. What foods have you been craving. 


We have been guided to pick foods that reflect the colour of the base chakra and also ones that help us reflect some of things that come up for us in the base…These can often include rich stews or slow cooked meals, root vegetables, protein rich nuts and nut butters and red fruits such as raspberries, strawberries etc


When you think of the effects that food has on your body, it’s likely that you immediately think of the physical impacts however, I know you are also aware that your food choices don’t just affect your physical self; they have a profound impact on your mental, emotional, and spiritual self as well. In fact, your mind, body, and spirit are all affected every single day by your food intake in ways that you may not even see.


That’s why intentionally choosing food that works with your internal energy is so important: because the effects extend beyond your physical self and digestive system and have an impact on your entire well-being.


The interesting thing about food though is that we will crave particular foods based on what is happening in the body. We will often crave sugar and carbs when our insulin levels are imbalanced, salty foods when our adrenals are our of balance, spicy foods when we have inflammation, wheat and dairy when you have an allergy going on in the body….these are just a few examples of what food cravings can actually be telling us.



We also know that food can imprint in the psyche as a memory or feeling. Think about any foods that you had as a child that you may not be consciously drawn to in your current diet but given the right emotional trigger, can desire and think of…. For me that is peppermint. 

I often say that every human is alike in many ways and one of those similarities is food. We all have an ‘eating disorder’ of some kind in how we eat, what we eat and the intention of food.

We are also all STILL on the learning pathway around this as we have had many generations where food has been compromised, we don’t know where it comes from and trying to ‘improve’ food or make it ‘convenient’.


So over the course of this immersion, let’s take a little dive into our relationship with food and all the connection we have around this…


We will be journeying through each chakra and aiming to eat foods relative to this chakra however, you will equally notice that you will crave or be drawn to particular foods in each chakra…this is what I want…muhahaha…


If you want to connect with a particular chakra, incorporate foods into your snacks and meals that correspond with that chakra. Be intentional with this practice. For instance, if you’re connecting with your root chakra and decide to add sweet potatoes to one of your meals, set the intention to connect with your root chakra before you add it to the dish or as you are cutting it up or start eating it. As you eat, remain mindful of the energy in and around your root chakra. You might also internally recite some root chakra affirmations as you’re eating such as:

  1. I am safe and secure.

  2. I am rooted in this present moment.

  3. I am strong, steady, and grounded

  4. All my needs are met

  5. I am exactly where I am meant to be


Let’s also share some of our favourite base chakra recipes to the group and each chakra we move up into, please share…


Here is mine:


Caraway and Juniper Berry Beetroot Sauerkraut

  1. A quarter or half of an organic purple cabbage (I find a quarter makes a nice jar size and doesn’t take too long to ferment)

  2. A tablespoon of Salt

  3. A half a teaspoon of caraway (double if you’re using a half a cabbage)

  4. 7 Juniper berries - one for each main chakra


Method

Wash and dry the cabbage then add all the ingredients to a bowl and mix well, I like to then get a wooden rolling pin or an object with a flat edge and massage the ingredients together. Pack it into a clean glass jar and press down as tight as it will go, use a rock or a smaller glass jar to weight down the ingredients and then cover with a muslin - over the next few hours you will see water beginning to appear, go back in and press the contents down until it becomes covered in its own liquid. Wipe around the edge so that no mould can form from tiny cabbage particles and decide if you would like to keep the muslin on and have a rapid ferment or save it from summer flies and use a lid that you ‘burp’ (open) a few times a day which may take a little longer. In summer I usually ferment for about 4 days however in winter this can take a little longer. Remember to check for any mould growth around the rim and continue to wipe. This becomes your little baby for a few days, nurturing it as though you are nurturing all the aspects of the wounded self in the base chakra.
