The sunrise in Cancun this morning was magical, with lots of clouds, wind, and even a lightning storm across the ocean. A windy morning in Cancun is really delightful, as it really cools things down. After a nice morning practice of meditating with Alejandro and chanting along with a few Snatam Kaur songs, I had a craving for almonds and raisins.
Almonds are high in protein, and provide: Vitamin B, Copper, Potassium, Iron, and Calcium.
In the yogic tradition, slightly alkaline blood is said to bring mental balance and maximum health. Alkaline foods help us to be reflective and calm, and build tone in our organs and nerves (The Aquarian Teacher, Level 1 Instructor Textbook, page 253). So, what foods can we eat to make our blood and bodies more alkaline?
Raisins are one of the most alkaline-promoting foods.
Health benefits of raisins include:
- relief from constipation
- anemia: raisins contain a good amount of iron, which helps to treat anemia
- sexual dysfuction: raisins stimulate the libido and induce arousal
- Blood: raisins contain vitamin B - essential for the formation of new blood, and copper, which helps the formation of red blood cells
- Raisins also help with eye health, dental care, and bone quality - Read more about amazing raisins here: (https://www.organicfacts.net/health-benefits/fruit/health-benefits-of-raisins.html)
Other great alkaline foods: green veggies, lemons, milk, yogurt, and legumes like beans, peas, lentils, etc.
Sat Nam! Have a beautiful day filled with love, light, and peace.
