Food & Astrology | Capricorn (Dec 21 - Jan 19)
Beyond excited to finally share this new project with you guys. I am doing it with french astrologer Paqui Conde who is working with people all around the world. We have been exchanging ideas, working on this project together for the last 6 months and I cannot wait for you to discover it!
Each month, I will highlight an astrological sign by offering recipes and tips. Each recipe will show you the importance of using local and seasonal ingredients, taking into account the energy of the astrological signs we are in. But even if that sign isn't yours, I invite you to try the recipes anyway. They will introduce you to the ingredients you should be eating and to the dominant energy during the season in question.
Our body has phases and as we go through the seasons, our needs change with them. Zodiac signs are connected to the seasons; meaning seasons, nutrition and astrology are all related and working together.
This month we will start with the Capricorn. I am looking forward to your feedbacks! Hopefully you guys enjoy the coming recipes.
