Spicy Goodness

I was excited this evening to try a new recipe. I’ve continued on my healing journey, with fruits and vegerables as the foundation of my diet. Adding cooked veggies, after the 28 day hesling cleanse, has been wonderful this week. 

I discovered that at Cheddars Restaurant I could request the chicken tortilla soup, without chicken or tortillas! What was left was a vegetable soup in a spicy broth. I was delighted to find this recipe for Tortilla Soup in the recipe booklet on The Healing Path website. 

I used store bought vegetable broth, although I will be making my own soon, to freeze in batches for future soup making. 

And I sauteed the onions and garlic in 2 tablespoons of olive oil until soft, before adding the chopped and cubed carrots, celery, potatoes and cauliflower. Cumin, paprika and chili powder were added, along with the 8 cups of vegetable broth and 1 tablespoon of olive oil. 

The soup is simmering for 45 minutes or so, filling the house with a spicy, mouth watering aroma. I’m preparing the soup for meals tomorrow and Monday. I’ll top a bowl of soup with chopped avocado. 

I enjoyed my time in the kitchen this evening, chopping vegetables and measuring out spices. Cooking is creativity in action for me, a type of meditation that centers me and fills me with deep joy and peace. My iPod was playing and I sang as I worked. 

I happened to glance out the kitchen window and caught the gorgeous sunset in the west. Grabbing my phone I climbed up onto the picnic table in the backyard, to snap a pic. Sunsets teach trust, Anthony shares in a Healing Path audio. The sun disappears every evening. But we learn that it returns every morning, whether it shines brightly or is hidden behind clouds. 

It was a beautiful end to the day. A stunning reminder to trust. And a pot of spicy goodness simmering on the stove. I am caring for myself, body and soul. I love how that feels.

Support for the Journey

Any time life changes are made, it is so important to receive support from someone who is a little further…or a lot further…down the path that seems so new and unfamiliar at first. Anthony offers a free course called The Healing Path on his website. This encouraging and informative course became a crucial part of my healing journey. And it is benefit #3, from the 28 day healing cleanse.

The Healing Path consists of 18 essential steps toward a healthy life. There are short audio segments, averaging ten minutes each, that cover topics such as Fruits, Vegetables and Hydration, which are all key components of a healthy diet. 

However, the course is so much more than healthy eating tips. There are lessons on Sleep, Play, Faith and Purpose. Because this journey encompasses the body and the soul, the mind and beliefs, the course offers encouragement and healing in all areas of life. 

After listening to the audio, there is a “take action” section to complete that puts into immediate practice the lesson learned. And there is a transcript of the audio that can be printed out for future reference. 

All of the modules have been helpful. I love listening to Anthony’s conversational narratives. He exudes joy and compassion. And I appreciate the connectedness of all things, as is evident in this series of lessons. Humor is part of the healing journey, as is Creativity. That lesson moved me deeply. Having a healthy, active body goes hand in hand with a vibrant, creative spirit. I can see that. I feel that. 

After the 18th lesson there are more audios with answers to frequently asked questions. And there are lists of suggested supplements, kitchen tools and appliances. Also included is a recipe booklet with attractive and delicious ways to enjoy fresh fruits and vegetables. I’ve already tried some of those and I’m excited to experience recipes for cooked vegetable dishes, as I complete the cleanse. 

Anthony has dedicated his life to helping people heal, from diseases, disorders and chronic pain. He offers his insights to the world, from his life and his generous heart. I am extremely grateful for the support given as I walk along The Healing Path. What an incredible gift.
