IN CONVERSATION: ZOEY XINYI GONG
This month we are highlighting women in wellness who inspire us and bring so much knowledge, joy and intention into the world of well-being. Every week this month we will be sharing an interview with one of them, learning more about their work, projects, recipes and visions for the future! We are kicking off the series with the amazing Zoey Xinyi Gong, founder of Five Seasons TCM, a BIPOC-founded boutique wellness brand that shares and modernizes the knowledge of TCM food therapy through educational content, functional products, and its avant-garde aesthetic. Zoey is a TCM chef and nutritionist born in Shanghai, China and currently based in Brooklyn, New York.
Creative Melissa Richards shares a beautifully simple and delicious recipe for homemade tortillas with Sun Potion Chlorella. Inspired by the tortillas her grandma would make when Melissa was young, we love how she has adapted this recipe by adding in Chlorella for its healing and detoxifying properties, and vibrant green hue! We recommend enjoying these tortillas with Melissa's Shiitake Mushroom Tacos using thyme, garlic, green onions, red pepper flakes, lemon juice and ghee. In Joy!
INTUITIVE WRITING PROMPT #8: WRITING WITH PLANTS
Writing and the intuitive sense are intricately linked. Writing can be used to connect with our intuition. Writing requires observation, attention and listening, just as intuition does. When we write, we are channeling, we are exploring possibility. When we write, we create something that wasn’t there before. Join us for this ongoing series of intuitive writing prompts with writer & poet Kate Belew.
ICED CACAO TONIC
"This tonic is the perfect treat for calming down my nervous system, helping me to unwind and opening my heart before bed..." Holistic Health Coach Naeemah has crafted this recipe that helps her achieve a good night's rest! Cacao is a powerful and delicious ingredient packed with nutrients and minerals and when incorporated with adaptogens, its next level. We invite you to make this potion before bed to support a healthy night's sleep.
ON ADDING GHEE AND HEALTHY FATS INTO YOUR COFFEE...
This week, Amrit explores how good sources of healthy fats such as ghee can be healing for the gut and food for the brain, and how adding fat to coffee is a centuries-old practice. When it comes to adaptogens and herbs, fat can improve the herb’s absorption within the body, “it helps to carry the medicinal properties of herbs into your tissues and lubricates your joints.” With a recipe for an adaptogenic coffee with ghee plus one for creating ghee at home, we hope you will enjoy and share your experience with us!
SALTED CARAMEL & VANILLA CREAM CAKE
A delicious cake by Iselin Støylin, this no-bake salted caramel cake uses Bio-Active Honey and Eucommia for added adaptogenic bliss! Top with edible flowers to take the presentation up a notch, especially if it is only for yourself and a loved one. You deserve it! Keep in your refrigerator or freeze to enjoy at your leisure.
