Whether looking for love, working on self-love, or wanting to rekindle love in a relationship, eating love-based food could be part of the answer to finding true love! It’s taken years for me to experiment with the right foods to put in my body, and it seems to change over time. If you have food allergies and/or sensitivities like me, it’s important to mainly eat whole, non-processed foods prepared at home. For one, it’s easier to detect which foods may be causing issues, because we can eliminate things that bother us. More importantly, we know exactly where our food is coming from.
When I falter from healthy eating habits (usually out of tiredness or strange cravings), my body pays the price big time with fatigue, pain, brain fog, and general discomfort. If we truly are what we eat, then eating nutrient-rich foods with energy is something that we should aspire to. Clean eating is a form of self-love by treating our temples with good vibes.
Before Valentine’s Day, my local grocery store had a sale on one of my favorite morning treats – So Delicious brand coconut milk yogurt – so I stocked up on it. With plenty of yogurt to cover my morning snacks over the next couple of weeks, I decided to be a little creative, adding some things with intention that are high on the love scale. That’s how I came up with this Love Spell Yogurt!
I prefer plain yogurt as opposed to flavored, because I can add my own sweet ingredients with natural sugar from a local raw honey farm. Honey is one of the perfect ingredients for a love spell, because it represents sweetness, fertility, and prosperity, which covers some of the foundations we want in a true-love relationship.
Fruit holds different symbolic connotations in various cultures, but overall, strawberries, a somewhat heart-shaped fruit, are all about rebirth and love. When it comes to nutrition, bananas are a source of energy, rich in potassium – an essential electrolyte; therefore, adding bananas to the yogurt increases the spell’s energy.
Chia seeds symbolize strength, another important aspect of love. Best of all are sunflower seeds, representing both love and happiness! Now you have everything you need for the perfect Love Spell Yogurt!
Follow the recipe here:
4 yogurt cups of So Delicious coconut milk yogurt
8 large strawberries, chopped
1 small banana, sliced
2 Tbsp Chia seeds
3 Tbsp Sunflower seeds
3 Tbsp Honey
Open and scoop cups of yogurt into large bowl. When opening yogurt cups, pull back on foil, but don’t remove it. You will be using it later.
Add chopped strawberries and stir with a large spoon. Add banana, stir.
Add seeds, mix well with spoon.
Mix well until “potion” looks even.
Scoop mixture back into cups. Cover with foil and refrigerate as normal.
I kept these cups for over a week without any issues of anything going bad. It also gives the chia seeds time to expand, which will aid in digestion. You can try experimenting with different ingredients that appeal to you, such as using dairy yogurt instead of vegan. Just remember to set your intentions for the type of love you want while you’re creating and eating it!
