$ What Makes this High-Vibing Food?

  • First and foremost, putting your own love, gratitude, time and energy into making foods at home will automatically raise the vibration of the foods/meal. This will also help to balance your sacral and heart chakras. Putting your love into the food you prepare will literally raise the vibrational frequency as love is the highest vibration out there!

  • You are what you eat and what your food eats. Using organic, GMO free, free/pasture raised, wild caught, minimally processed ingredients lead to an overall higher vibrational frequency. Basically, eating organic provides us extra energy currency!

  • This dish is rich in protein,which is grounding and protective. It also supports the root chakra.

  • Contains zinc, which is needed for thousands of chemical reactions in your body involving protein, so it is also supportive to the root chakra.

  • Contains red colored foods. Red vibrates at about the same frequency as the root chakra. So, eating red foods helps to maintain the proper root chakra frequency.

  • This recipe is full of healthy fats and oils, which supports the sacral chakra.

  • Contains nuts, which is both grounding and flowing, and thus supports both the root and sacral chakras.

  • This recipe is higher in fiber, which supports all three of the lower chakras as it aides in the movement and flow of bulk during the digestive processes.

  • Contains raw veggies, which are especially balancing to the heart chakra as they contain balancing cooling properties.

  • Contains green colored foods, which support and balance the heart chakra.

  • 4 tsp. organic apple cider vinegar (ACV)

  • 2 tsp. poppy seeds

  • ½ tsp. garlic granules

  • Clear liquid stevia, a few drops (Taste and adjust if needed. You don’t want the dressing too sweet, but you definitely want a bit of sweetness!)

Salad

  • 1 rotisserie chicken, meat removed and shredded

  • 1 package of bacon or prosciutto (uncured, sugar free, nitrite/nitrate free)

How to Create This Recipe:

  2. Then, cook the bacon in a pan until crisp. Drain the bacon on a paper towel lined plate and then chop into bite sized pieces OR cook the prosciutto on a parchment lined baking sheet at 350 ° F for 7-8 minutes, or until crisp. Chop the prosciutto into bite sized pieces.

  3. When the chicken is cool enough to handle comfortably, remove the meat off the bones, & shred/chop it into bite-size pieces. Transfer the chicken into a large bowl.

  4. To the large bowl of chicken, stir in the pecans, grapes, tomatoes, celery, bacon/prosciutto, and the dressing. Mix until combined. Add more pepper if necessary.
