11. Vegetarian Holiday Feasts

 

Asur’Ana has experimented with many lovely feasts last year. Each of these feasts was a part of a menu Earth had in mind for the holidays when special attention to cooking is a part of the human dream. Below we offer up three holiday menus, one that is Greek, one that is Italian, and one that is of Continental cuisine. The goal is to create a wonderful vegetarian meal for oneself and one’s guests that is fun to prepare and fulfilling to experience.

 

Cooking need not be a chore; it can be a work of art. As one intends to allow the cooking to express one’s heart in collaboration with Earth and the vegetable and fruit kingdoms, so it will be. Those enjoying the food prepared in such a kitchen can only be amazed.

 

For the holiday feast, food would taste extra delicious and the gathering magical, if the entire family or group takes a moment to bless the cook or chef, kitchen, vegetable and fruit kingdoms, and the farmlands. Perhaps this speaks to what occurs as soul returns to the dance of life – all of life becomes magical including the food upon one’s plate.

 

Therefore, intend that this be so at your holiday meals this year beloved. Then extend this magic to all meals in the year ahead. Take the time to bless what you eat and bless the food you are preparing in the kitchen, and mealtime can become a magical and blessed experience.

 

Happy Holidays!

 

Continental Holiday Cuisine

 

For new vegetarians, there may be a need to create something that feels more traditional for holiday fare. We hope that in the below recipes that Earth and Asur’Ana have accomplished this goal.

6. Soups, Salads And Starters

 

Soups warm the spirit upon a cold winter’s night. Even in Hawaii, there are those stormy days that a good soup tastes so nice. Salads and raw foods are also important to ascension as they provide the necessary enzymes to transmute to the crystalline form as well as digest one’s food; and provide bulk to cleanse the intestine. A salad a day will make ascension easier in Earth’s opinion. Roasted or cooked vegetables are a good source of vitamins that only emerge as the food is heated.

 

We do not advise a “raw food” only diet for ascension. Raw foods are often hard to digest if it is the only food source offered to the body, and then one does not receive enough of the needed nutrients to foster ascension. Cooked foods are gentler upon the digestive system. Many uncooked vegetables are difficult to break down, even with ascending digestive enzymes. Therefore, eating a well-balanced diet of about 1/3 to 1/2 raw and 1/2 to 2/3 cooked foods is what Earth recommends for ascending initiates.

 

The body will also tell you when it is unhappy with what you are eating. Too much flatulence may be a sign of too much raw food; or the result of too many beans or tofu. As you eat quinoa, polenta, rice, potato or pasta with such symptoms, it will soothe the digestive tract enough to recover. Too many enzymes from raw food may begin to digest the stomach or small intestines; this is why one may suffer from distress following a meal or many meals of raw foods. The quinoa, polenta, rice, potato or pasta in turn will sweep through absorbing the excessive enzymes, allowing one to come to balance and recover. We hope that this information is of use unto each reading of our materials.

 

Salads

 

Salads provide enzymes, life force and bulk to one’s ascending diet.
