Mid-Summer is a time when days are long and activities many. With more sun and more fun in the schedule it is easy to skip out on nourishing home cooked meals. So when you’re looking for a satisfying bite to eat this one is easy to put together, nutrient rich yet light and easy to digest. The versatility of a one-pot meal makes it one my favorite cleansing and rejuvenating items to have on hand for breakfast, lunch or dinner.

A congested liver can lower the quality of life and lead to digestive and hormonal imbalances as well as emotional and anger challenges.

What People are Saying

I have known Shivani Jane, a culinary Master Herbalist/Gourmet Chef for over 20 years. I started using these spice blends about a year or so back. They have replaced most of what I use to cook with today. They are simple to a perfection. They do not cover up the taste of whatever you use them with. The blends are bold but subtle enough to use with the most delicate white fish. Or strong enough to enhance your favorite lamb dish bringing out the true flavor of the lamb itself. It will turn the novice chef into a 5 star gourmet restaurant chef with out leaving the comfort of your own kitchen.

Thanks for the guidance and support you’ve given me over our 6 sessions. I went to bed by 10 pm last night for the first time this year by promising spirit I would do it. I slept until 9:30 am this morning. Will continue this commitment and let myself sleep until I wake up, expecting to eventually wake earlier until I reach 7 am. I feel so good about this. Thanks again for your insights and encouragement.

Shivani introduced these magical treats to our midwife circle two years back, and now they are the favorite snack choice for my three tweens! They prefer these healthy treats over sugary foods. We have a guideline in the house – well, its more like a LAW, no one but Mama can eat the last Bliss Ball in the freezer. Shivani also offered me great low glycemic, low fat recipes to create for my Dad as he recuperates from his stroke. Thank you Shivani!!
