Cruelty Free Chile Relleno. Seriously I know what you are thinking how can these be chile rellenos with out cheese. Well honey they can be all CHILE RELLENO means is Stuffed Chile. So I have came up with this tasty version and it’s easy to make.
Grilled Baby Potatoes or any potatoes
Grilled Cauliflower Head
Pineapple Cut in little Squares
Optional: Nut Cheese. I left this out because it’s a little on the fatty side.
Roast the peppers on the stove. Allow to cool. Old Skool style. Until they are black.
Skin the chiles with a knife. Slice on one end down the center, take out the seeds.
Smash your baby potatoes and cauliflower together until it becomes the consistency of stuffing.
Add your little squares of pineapple.
Top with some salsa, and pow mamacita you got yourself a nutritious meal.
Okay it’s a bit dramatic to call this the hangover cure, everyone knows what cures a hangover.
However I am so excited to share this recipe with everybody. I won’t bore you with the details but this soup is said to support adrenal health, and helps your liver process alcohol and excess sugar and encourages the production of bile salts. Bile salts are responsible for breaking down fat. Created by Dr. Henry Bieler (interesting name right BILE, BILERE weird) I first heard about it through the EQ Blog they had a little interview with nutritionist Haylie Romroy.
1 Lb. Green Beans
4 Stalks Celery
2 Big Bunches Parsley
1 Sprig Thyme, Rosemary, Tarragon
1 Chile de Arbol
1 oz Fresh Ginger
1 gallon Spring Water – I recommend using “Beyond 02 Water House”
Slice Zucchinis, Chop Celery.
Place Vegetables and herbs in a pot.
Fill with water, you want all the vegetables to be covered.
Salt to taste. (take it easy on the salt)
Bring to boil.
Cover and let simmer for 20 minutes.
Clear the sprigs so you don’t choke on them and enjoy.
Using the KITCHEN HELPER slice zucchini into spaghetti and add raw to the broth.
Today’s inspiration is compliments of the farmers who bring us natures delicias. Every time one visits the market it becomes an opportunity to discover new edibles inspire new dishes and fusions. Food is not stagnant, food evolves. The most exciting find this week was the Lobster Mushroom, bright red beautiful color with a scent of sea. The Purple Queen Beans look more velvety in person. They remind me of Tom Ford meets Kilian in a forest. Gorgeous. The heirloom tomatoes succulent and meaty in the most perfect way. Again these are ideas, don’t not try something because you don’t have heirloom tomatoes, well just use tomatoes. However I do encourage you to build a relationship with your nutrition. <ahref=”http://victorlomelila.files.wordpress.com/2013/08/20130813-141041.jpg”>
Here is a little preview of what’s coming up this week: A new discovery for me is the Lobster Mushroom it is exciting. The velvety Purple Queen Beans. What a blessing. So please check in during the week for some recetas.
Purple Queen Beans.
White Watermelon. (already this week I saw a square watermelon)
Organic Heirloom Tomatoes.
Calabasitas/Zucchini cut into spaghetti shape using the Benriner Kitchen Helper.
A Mexican favorite is Calabasitas or zucchini. As soon as the heat wave passes the original Calabasitas recipe will be posted in the meantime an exciting fusion just happened right here. It’s all live mijitos. Apoco no? It’s fast its easy its delicious and its bueno para ti, and according to Wikipedia The zucchini fruit is low in calories (approximately 15 food calories per 100 g fresh zucchini) and contains useful amounts of folate (24 mcg/100 g), potassium (280 mg/100 g) and vitamin A (384 IU [115 mcg]/100 g. 1/2 cup of zucchini also contains 19% of the recommended amount of manganese. This fantastic news.
- 2 Calabasitas/Zuchinni Organic if available and of course you knew that.
- 2 Limones/Lemons,
- 1 Naranja/Orange
- Cut the ends of the Calabasita and cut that into two.
- Secure the Calabasita on the Beriner usind the spaghetti blade and spin away, perhaps a little cumbia in the background
- Place in a large glass blow, remember that acids and plastics are not a good mix, pero cada quien, work with what you have
- Squeeze the Limones and the Naranjas and Mix, perhaps more cumbia in the background or maybe #Thicke and Blurred Lines.
- Add a little Sea Salt, just a little, maybe some diced roasted peppers, but that’s negotiable since ummmm we are trying to stay away from unnecessary oils.
Let me know how it went. Everyone knows I’d do the splits if someone left a comment.
When we reframe our point of reference from the outer world to that quiet sacred inner space we then allow ourselves to embrace the loving self-image that is buried deep within every single one of us. Victor Lomeli in Shirshasana.
Welcome to day 5: Today is all about being real with yourself, not negative or judgmental just real. Celebrating the real you. This meditation has the potential to change your perception. Be real. Be still. Exhale all of your air out, pause and lovingly inhale in, take your hand and place it over your heart,( I know, I know it sounds a bit dramatic, pero por favor try it) gently ask your heart this question “What are my fears of truly accepting and loving myself?”
Real self-esteem is abundant and it is ever present, but at times it can be clouded by all the noise in the outside world. When we reframe our point of reference from the outer world to that quiet sacred inner space we then allow ourselves to embrace the loving self-image that is buried deep within every single one of us. We can then shift our perception of ourselves and of others. And that is what allows us to connect to true self esteem.
We came into this beautiful life as perfect drops of love and divinity. Our sense of self-worth influences our perceptions and inner dialogue often creating incongruence between our essential truths and how we perceive daily life experiences. I invite you to step into a refreshed self-image one that reflects your true beauty and divine essence. Take a closer look: Self Image is the self your ego believes you are. The Ego takes its cue from the outer world feeding on approval and security often fueling feelings of inadequacy and fear. “What do these people think of me?” “Do I look okay?” “Did I say the right thing?” The feedback we receive from our environment over the years forms the image we hold of ourselves, in this respect self-image keeps reminding us of who we were in this specific situation NOT who we are. True self esteem is based on the spiritual recognition of one’s true value which lies beyond your ego and begins with self-awareness. As we accept and honor who we are we begin to treat ourselves as a cherished loved one, with kindness , trust, love, honesty and compassion. With increased awareness of true self we become conscious of how we talk to ourselves choosing words that are enlightening uplifting and loving . And should we falter we forgive ourselves quickly and fully. Who you are is so much more than the image you have formed of yourself based on feedback of the outside world. Give yourself permission to detach from those opinions and perceptions open to your divinity, your creativity your potential and Live from your higher self.
Today’s Centering Thought:
I am a perfect, divine creation.
Our Sanskrit mantra:
Om Bhavam Nama
I am absolute existence. I am a field of all possibilities.

Day 4 of the meditation challenge. “As I love and honor myself my relationships blossom” Today is about discovering a way to honor yourself and show appreciation for yourself. What activities make you feel alive and balanced that you will do for you today? This week? Perhaps you’ll cook one of my low cal lunches, or maybe you’ll show up to that dance class you’ve been wanting to go to. What ever it may be, harvest love and you’ll have an abundance for sharing.
Our willingness to take care of our selves is deeply connected to our ability to receive love from anybody else. Take care of your self. Tend to your mind, Your body and your spirit each day. That is what will put you on the path to true love with the most important person in your life: YOU! Honor yourself and your relationships will blossom beyond your imagination. Every relationship is shaped by the dynamic flow of giving and receiving. We breath in to receive life giving oxygen and as we exhale we nourish the plants and trees with carbon dioxide we share out love creativity and joy and we experience the expansion of those same qualities in our lives. At the deepest level giving and receiving are different aspects of the same flow of energy in the universe. Yet many of us were brought to believe that it is better to give than to receive, that it is important to take care of other peoples needs before our own. If you have taken that belief to heart you may find yourself giving until you are physically exhausted, financially depleted or emotionally drained with little left to give. In reality truly loving relationships depend on the ability to nurture yourself to love yourself and to practice self care, you can only give what you have and your relationship will always mirror how you feel about yourself. Are you treating yourself as the precious lovable soul that you are? Infinitely worthy, infinitely deserving. In the words of the Budahh: You can search the entire universe and not find a single being more worthy of love than you. If you have not been making your own wellbeing and care a priority in you life do not use this realization to criticize or condemn yourself we are always doing the best we can given our current level of awareness as our awareness expands we open to new possibilities and ways of being. Right now at this very moment you have the opportunity to begin giving yourself more love, appreciation and attention. It is never too late. Your true self is pure love and pure spirit.
Todays Centering Thought.
As I love and honor myself, my relationships blossom.
Our Sanskrit mantra:
Om Vardhanam Namah
I nourish the universe and the universe nourishes me.
