AstroGourmet Recipes: October 2-8

Astrology-based dishes may bring about optimal bliss. Depending on the planetary alignment, the Sun and the Moon, we can prepare delicious recipes to help the capriciousness of the Stars! Here are my recipes of the week stressing the importance of equilibrium in all aspects of life.

With the Sun in Libra, let us strive to do what must be done to correct any imbalances in our lives. Let us never blame others or rely on others to achieve that equilibrium, we must do it by ourselves for ourselves. This week we are going to use turmeric as it represents overcoming obstacles and achieving victory for a balanced life. In Ayurveda, this yellow and aromatic spice is considered to be one of the most purifying and it is associated with Jupiter, the planet of expansion! How wonderful is that?
