After a week of learning, unlearning, stretching, growing and eating on an amazing yoga retreat in Abu Dhabi I am ready to embrace clean thinking with my clean eating.
Studying the Kleshas (the causes of suffering) and the wheel of samskara (generalized patterns) samskaras are individual impressions, ideas, or actions; taken together, our samskaras make up our conditioning. Repeating samskaras reinforces them, creating a groove that is difficult to resist. Samskaras can be positive—imagine the selfless acts of Mother Theresa. They can also be negative, as in the self-lacerating mental patterns that underlie low self-esteem and self-destructive relationships. The negative samskaras are what hinder our positive evolution.)
I need to still be true to myself and indulge just a little, No one wants lack of chocolate to be a cause for suffering.
Raw Dark Chilli Chocolate Mousse it is! It sounds like it has some hidden nasties but it’s actually 100% clean, and would kick any sugar laden mousse to the curb!
A few avocados blended into a pulp depending on the size of the avocados
Some cacao, almond milk, coconut oil & cinnamon
A pinch or two of cayenne pepper
