Creating a recipe is akin to blending single musical notes together to create a melody. Although in our case we are using the vibrational ‘note’ of each food item used in combination to weave, a narrative or energetic story, to craft a specific state of being. I am fascinated with the idea of "nature abhors a vacuum". With the concept I am putting forward -- this translates as -- we can either consciously craft ourselves or the environment will fill in the blanks. Or laydown energetic patterns, in our subtle bodies, that will in turn dictate behavior, that is driven from a source outside of your choosing. Food is such a fun and available way to do this. Everyone eats!
There can be many different interpretations of how a dish behaves, the following is mine. If this version does not feel correct to you, I encourage you to look at the key concepts below and find the energetic story that speaks to you at this time.
