Sacred Words
this month's wisdom quote
"The world is violent and mercurial - it will have its way with you.
We are saved only by love - love for each other
and the love that we pour into the art we feel compelled to share:
Being a parent; being a teacher; being of service, being a friend.
We live in a perpetually burning building,
and what we must save from it, all the time, is love."
Tennessee Williams

Sacred Table
this month's recipe for health and happiness!
Making your kitchen into a temple for vegetarian food also helps to heal yourself, those you feed, and the planet!
Walnut Pesto Zucchini Noodles
2 zucchinis, spiralized or made into noodles with a vegetable peeler
For Walnut Pesto:
1 cup walnuts
1 TB nutritional yeast
1 large bunch basil leaves
1/2 cup extra virgin olive oil
1 clove garlic, crushed
2 TB fresh lemon juice
salt and pepper
Place walnuts and nutritional yeast into a food processor and pulse. Add all other pesto ingredients and process until smooth. Place into an airtight container and keep in the fridge to use when needed.
After you prepare the zucchini noodles, you either use them raw or place into a pan of boiling water for a couple of minutes. Then take out and drain off as much water as possible.
Place noodles in a bowl and add a couple of tablespoons of pesto and combine. Add desired veggies.
