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

$ A Short Note on Swaps or Ingredients:
*While I cannot guarantee that using these swaps will yield the same flavors I have create in this recipe, these swaps should generally work well!*
When it comes to canned seafood, quality is key! Always be sure to buy wild caught and sustainably harvested brands. We love Wild Planet and Costco/Kirkland wild caught options. Note, that if you use Wild Planet, do NOT toss the liquid in the can; it's not water and helps to rehydrate the fish.
I use the brand "CoYo" for my plain coconut yogurt if you're sensitive to dairy, nuts, or if you're in the strict phase of the AIP. You CAN also use regular cows milk plain yogurt or a plain nut based yogurt if you're not in the strict phase of the AIP or sensitive to any of the ingredients. As for brands, coconut yogurts can vary widley. The CoYo brand has a mild, tangy taste and a thicker more greek yogurt like consistency. Two other brands I have used with success for this recipe are Coconut Collaborative & Culina. Do not mistake the suggested CoYo brand for a similar brand called "CocoYo"by GT's. This one is very vinegar like in takes and while its good for some, its taste and consistency will not be right for this recipe.
For an added boost of probiotic goodness, get fermented pickles! These taste the same as your typical pickle, but I think even better and better for you! You'll find these in the refrigerated section of your local health food store.
