Lately I have been drawn to eating what I can only refer to as a very “third eye” type of diet.
What do I mean by this?
Your third eye is one of 7 energy centers in your body, also known as chakras. Located on your forehead between the eyebrows, the third eye is the chakra that governs intuition, psychic ability, dreams, wisdom and imagination.
If you meditate frequently and/or engage your intuition and mind intensely, you might be taxing your third eye a lot – which will then need replenishment, often in the form of food.
Now let me just say, I meditate a LOT. I am a big fan of meditation and over the past several months I have really adapted my life to include a mega dose of daily quieting & refocusing of the mind. I’ll do about 30 minutes in the morning and 30 minutes before going to bed. And usually I’ll listen to a meditation on my commute as well. I just love it!
Now, I have no scientific evidence to back this up or anything like that but ever since I’ve upped my daily meditations, I have been wildly craving the same odd bunch of foods day after day – purple & red berries, dark chocolate, almond butter, and various grass-fed raw dairy products (cheese, yoghurt & kefir). This is coming from someone who barely ever used to eat chocolate, let alone crave it. Many times I will feel drawn to eating some sort of combination of these foods during or immediately after I meditate. Interesting, right?
From studying the chakras, I do know that berries and chocolate nourish the third eye and these are the very foods I’ve been obsessed with the most. Seriously Cannot.Get.Enough. The body’s cravings are truly fascinating!
Anyway, I bring all this up because when I recently found a package of rice flour tucked away in the pantry, my first thought was: “How can I use this to incorporate more chocolate and berries into a meal?”
Rice flour is not something I cook with very often. Or ever I should say! I don’t quite remember how I ended up with it in the house but after some experimenting, I managed to mix up a batter with a consistency that looked somewhat like pancake batter. And voila – I present to you light & fluffy gluten-free rice crepes (with a special third eye nourishment filling ~ love it!!)
In the spirit of kitchen creating, the end result came out quite well!
