On Pure Thoughts

The longer we are able to hold a positive thought, the stronger that energy around us becomes.

~ Daily Om

Spiritual inertia happens when I live reactively to life as though it happens to me.  My thoughts scatter negative energy in a myriad of directions. Cycling between beginning and ending.  Moving chaotically from one moment to the next. When I am still and allow my thoughts to flow freely, I can feel how impermanent and inconsistent they are. Developing a healing practice to create a portal to breath creating space to let go of the things that are not meant for you.  This could be a person, an issue or situation that causes our wellbeing to feel negative emotions and upsets the harmonious balance through our thoughts, habits and ultimate behavior into disease or illness.  For me it was breast cancer.

Holidays on the Side — Featuring Tofu Summer Rolls by lazycatkitchen.com

Naturally vegetarian and gluten-free, these summer rolls with hoisin tofu are delicious and stylish.  A healthy appetizer, work or kid’s school lunch.

In the Mix:
  • 1 packet Hoisin & Sesame marinated Tofu, sliced (Bean Supreme)
  • 50g Vermicelli noodles
  • 1 cup fresh coriander (we love Superb Herb)
  • 4 baby carrots, julienned (we love Wilcox )
  • 1 cucumber, julienned
  • 2 spring onions, thinly sliced
  • 8 Rice paper sheets
  • 1 tbsp black sesame seeds
  • Mint (we love Superb Herb)
  • Peanuts – toasted and chopped
  • 1 avocado (we love NZ Avocado)
Putting it all together:
  1. Cook sliced Tofu on a non-stick frypan over medium-high heat. 1-2 minutes each side or until heated through and slightly brown. Pour over the packet marinade last minute. Remove tofu from pan and set aside. Pour the marinade into a pottle as a dipping sauce – set aside.
  2. Prepare the vermicelli according to the packet instructions. Cut into shorter manageable length.
  3. Dampen a clean kitchen towel and put on a clean surface. Prepare the rice paper sheets according to the instructions on the packet. Keep the hydrated rice paper on the damp towel.
  4. Roll the summer rolls. On a rice paper, place vegetables, tofu, peanuts and a small clump of noodles then fold the sides over the filling and roll tightly. Repeat.
  5. Cut rolls in half and enjoy them fresh with a bowl of the dipping sauce and Sprinkle little black sesame seeds over.

Bon Appetit!


Blessings to all…
