Wow, another holiday coming – this one filled with baskets of goodies, like Chocolate Easter Bunnies, Peeps and more… Enjoy this Easter holiday, originally based on the pagan feast that celebrated fertility and abundance. Then, restart the Chakra Energy Diet to keep your creativity and sensuality flowing…
Nourishing your Sacral Chakra will make you feel more confident in social interactions, free to process your emotions, feel creative, and able to enjoy sex and other pleasurable activities, like a holiday feast, without guilt. The Sacral Chakra resonates with the element of water – so make a splash, go with the flow, celebrate Spring and the glories of nature to support this chakra.
To nourish the Sacral Chakra, eat high quality protein (focusing on fish, such as wild-caught salmon, tuna, red snapper, trout), and orange vegetables. In addition to low-starch carrots and orange bell peppers, you can savor yams, sweet potatoes and winter squash – naturally sweet without giving you a sugar rush. Of course, eat as many other vegetables as you can fit on your plate as well as they fill you up with nutrients and fiber.
The Sacral Chakra also thrives on good quality fatty acids, so in addition to fatty fish like salmon, add in nuts and seeds as snacks or salad toppings.
Healthy home cooking, especially if you’re moving around the kitchen while listening to your favorite music, will impart extra healing to your meals. Appreciate the beauty of the colors and savor the smells coming from the food on your plate.
Try these examples of a breakfast, lunch and dinner to nourish your Sacral Chakra:
Start the morning with a Smoothie or Juice made from carrots, beets and a handful of kale. Half an hour later, saute an omelet (or scrambled tofu – mix mashed tofu with Bragg Amino Acids and turmeric) with onions and orange bell peppers.
Top a large Green Salad with orange carrot slices, avocado, beans, shrimp or tuna fish.
Grilled Salmon is my favorite entrée for the Sacral Chakra. Try serving the salmon atop a bed of steamed kale, and a salsa of pineapple and mango. I also love grilled or poached salmon topped with Thai-style peanut sauce, and a plate full of veggies cooked in a little sesame, olive or coconut oil. Try adding turmeric, ginger, and other spices and herbs for flavor.
