Soul Food Prepares For Full Moon

A few years ago, I started seed cycling, which means eating certain seeds from full moon to new moon and others from new moon to full moon. It was recommended to me as a vegetarian alternative to fish oils to find hormonal balance. Overall well-being increased once I adapted this technique. I find making a batch of granola is a great way to stay with the cycle and honor the feminine moon energy. (The next full moon starts 8:05am on Tuesday, October 27.)

Full Moon Granola Ingredients:

  • 6 cups oats

  • 2 cups almonds, or other nut

  • 1 cup sesame seeds

  • 1 cup shredded coconut

  • 1 tsp. cardamom

  • 2 tbsp. raw cocoa

  • 2/3 cup sunflower oil

  • 2/3 cup maple syrup, or honey

  • 1/2 cup orange juice

  • 2 tsp. vanilla

  • 1 cup chia seeds

  • Salt to taste


Bake at 225 degrees, stirring every 20 minutes until brown (approximately 40 to 60 minutes). Once cool, add chia seeds and a pinch of salt.
