Here’s something a little different today. I wanted to share this post with you because of Shakaya Leone’s refreshing and fun approach to eating luscious, fresh, healthful food. Spring is here and it won’t be long until Farmer’s Markets are open and we can buy nutritious foods inexpensively. It takes just a little planning to choose the fruits and vegetables and healthy grains in the vegan lifestyle instead of the processed foods that are making so many of us obese and unhealthy.
Shakaya Leone’s goal is to inspire women to make exquisite self-care a priority, not a luxury. She’s using her imagination and having some fun with this recipe in the hope that you will do the same thing. I hope so too. Here’s what she has to say:
“Food is about who we are and who we want to become. I want to intercept your food doldrums and spark the magic in your everyday life. Undress your food and eat it nude; fresh, raw, unadulterated beautiful food. It’s the sexiest way to eat and will seduce you into happiness, open your heart, and you will love every bite you take. Some of the most loving bites you’ll ever take will be in my show-stopping key lime mousse recipe, which follows:
Shakaya’s Sublime Key Lime Mousse
Squeeze limes, into a juicy pool of goodness. The scent of citrus fills the air and entices him to peek over your shoulder. Swirling a creamy, delicious dab of green goddess vibrancy, he licks it off your finger. Is it too sweet or too tangy? You loosen your silk scarf from your hair and wrap it around his neck to pull him close, very close. you whisper to him that you are taking him somewhere exotic. Somewhere fresh. Somewhere he has never been before. He agrees.
4 limes squeezed
2 ripe avocado
¼ c agave nectar or 8 pitted dates
1/3 c baby spinach optional
A dash of pure vanilla powder
1. Process into a silk so smooth and creamy bringing all the tangy goodness together
2. Enjoy as a fun-do to dip fresh fruit slices in to, or layer with fresh berries in a tall parfait glass
