This time, when I made a batch of Herb Bites, I decided to expand on the Heart theme and include all 3 of these ‘ingredients.’
Again, I used about half a container of Tahini, both for flavor and for its trace minerals, and a good dollop of Molasses- I like its rich flavor, and its mineral and Iron components are a bonus. This time I added a tablespoon of Chia seeds too.
Gotu Kola and Bacopa are Eastern herbs traditionally used to improve mental clarity and memory- here’s the Head healing. Astragalus improves vitality, Horsetail’s high silica content has been helping my cuticles, and Red Raspberry Leaf is very nutritive. A tablespoon of each powder went into the bowl, as did 3 tablespoons of that beautiful Rose powder too, for Heart medicine, to give a good cookie dough consistency that just held together.
Are you counting? That’s 8 tablespoons total, or 24 teaspoons. I made smaller bites this time, 33 of them. This means there’s about ¾ teaspoon herb in each bite, so 2 is a good dose per day. I also sprinkled them with a little extra rose powder, since it’s pretty!
The Hand work was mixing and rolling and sprinkling, but I’m also being very mindful each time I eat a Bite to thank myself for the work. Too often I cook and gobble and move on, when really it’s important to honor my effort as I would any other person who did something for me.
