Happy Tuesday! What a glorious day to wake up, enjoy the splendor of living on this Earth, and engage in activities you love. If you’re still working at manifesting your dream job/life, don’t forget to be happy and grateful for what you have been gifted this present. As Abraham-Hicks says, ‘There’s beauty in enjoying the contrast before you, for if you were gifted everything you desire in this moment, you would not enjoy it fully, and would also likely become very overwhelmed.”

We’re gifted little bits at a time (as we CHOOSE to allow ourselves to fully receive)because we are on a continuous journey of expansion and growth. I prefer to liken this to the choice of consuming ALL your meals needed for the remainder of this life in one meal, versus enjoying a meal (or 2-3) every day for the rest of your life.

Enjoy the ride! It’s about the journey. 

Anyways, today I bring you a fabulous recipe, once again crafted in the Verita Life kitchen in Bangkok, Thailand. I have SO many recipes to share, I’m actually constructing a {ketogenic, live food} recipe book (the first in the world, I think) to help you on your healing journey. (Keep an eye out for that!)

When I backpacked through Cambodia, there was this adorable little vegan, hippy cafe called the Peace Cafe in Siem Reap (above!). It is a non-profit restaurant that benefits local charities, and they served up a wicked menu. Although their version isn’t raw, it was SO good (and quite addictive). I found myself biking to the cafe almost daily to work on the computer, read and savor a bowl of the super-spicy soup with a side of brown rice.

This is the area Angkor Wat is located at as well. I highly recommend you check out this wonder of the world if you make it to Asia. But in the meantime, enjoy a bit of Asia in your own kitchen by creating this fiery (um, spicy!) Tom Yum Soup with a delectable side of Daikon-Macadamia ‘Rice’.

Put these two together…and voila! You have yourself a super amazing, delicious Asian meal to satiate your senses until you have the opportunity to travel to the incredible continent yourself.
