Hi folks, welcome to this Third Quarter Moon, and this final week of the current lunar cycle! Check out my video on this!
Self care for me this week is upping my green game, so empowering for my body.
Today, that’s looking like a zucchini and kale scramble, fresh from the garden, using eggs from a friend, and homemade salsa verde on the side… Yum!
(Game-changer was adding sun-dried tomato pesto to the mix, bit of zing!)
Yes, doing my bit, pointless as it is, to keep up with the zucchini abundance!
And, nettle infusion (28g/1oz dried nettle steeped in 1 litre/1 quart water for 4+ hours).
I like to drink it warm (strained, of course!), and I usually finish the jar in two sittings throughout the day.
(I don’t super love the taste of it, so I skull a whole glass at a time!)
I notice it in my facial skin, tangible effects. But more to the point, I’m investing in this practice for the significant nutritional benefits.
According to Susun Weed:
“Nettle is amazingly rich in protein, vitamins, and minerals, especially the critical trace minerals: anti-cancer selenium, immune-enhancing sulphur, memory-enhancing zinc, diabetes-chasing chromium, and bone-building boron. A quart of nettle infusion contains more than 1000 milligrams of calcium, 15000 IU of vitamin A, 760 milligrams of vitamin K, 10% protein, and lavish amounts of most B vitamins.
“There is no denser nutrition found in any plant, not even bluegreen algae; and nettle is much more reasonably priced than any supplement, especially if you buy more than an ounce or two at a time.
“Nettle builds energy from the inside out by nourishing the adrenals… Nettle smoothly and persistently carries optimum nourishment to every cell in the body, and brings a smile to your face.”
What daily self-care practice will see you through this descent to the New Moon in Leo next week?!
