$ 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 collagen,which is grounding and protective. It also supports 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/or oils,which supports the sacral chakra.

  • This recipe is higher in carbohydrates, providing the solar plexus chakra with both long-lasting sugar sources (like fiber) and quick acting sugars like glucose.

  • Contains yellow/tan/golden colored foods, which help raise the body’s frequency to that of the solar plexus, helping to balance it.


$ 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! *

  • Use 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 cow’s 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 widely. 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.

  • Use Jacks Paleo Kitchen Snickerdoodle Cookies for this recipe if you're in the strict phase of the AIP or are sensitive/allergic to eggs, nuts, dairy, chocolate or nightshades. Feel free to use any other AIP flavor of their cookie brand or if you're not sensitive or on the AIP, another gluten free cookie could be used in its place.
