She stands before them, unwilling to surrender. Abundant with everlasting love, she’s loyal to her past, so she stands within their acknowledgement knowing that she too belongs.
Her certainty remains secret but there are no bounds to her loyalty. As she IS who was destined to lay on the tomb of thrones of her village of ancestors.
Her regal bearings allows her to travel subconsciously. Sacred with the pillars that remain aligned to the suns’ comings. Magic happens at the Temple of Philae and Auset (Isis) is the principle of all existence in Assuan (Aswan).
Honored with her distinctive rights and true name, she walks outside of her temple knowing that her practices live within and surrounds her with the highest metals of gold that exists on the body of earth.
As she cherishes everything about her past, the illumination by the sons of rays reveals her divinization of alchemy which brings her closer to her birthplace. Her interaction with nature, and humanity’s attempts to harness the power of life internal and external is the epitome of the deep and abiding relationship with those who know her.
Ancient and authentic, the shadows of Ethiopians and Africans pasts, surrounds her flesh as they know the Lady of Ten Thousand Names. Nubia, the ancient kingdom of Kush is where she is most known and where the Blymmeyes continue to worship her at Philae.
And even when she travels south of the Nile, she prays and all energies from the pyramids graces her presence with spiritual guidance and evolution of the rich blackness from the heavens.

Chickpea pancakes with Quinoa flour.
Some people may think that chickpeas are not that great but have you tried them in pancake batter? This dish is good for vegetarians who live an alkaline lifestyle or if you have a wheat or gluten intolerance. This savory pancake is filled with protein and fiber and ingredients follow the Dr. Sebi list of ingredients.
1 cup garbanzo bean flour
1 cup Quinoa flour
1/4 cup sugar
1 tsp baking powder (not Dr. Sebi approved)
1/2 tsp sea salt
3/4 cup coconut milk
3/4 cup hot water
2-4 Tbls avocado or grapeseed oil
Simple syrup on top:
1 cup blueberries
1 cup strawberries
1 key lime-juice
1/4 cup pure agave nectar.
Sift dry ingredients in a bowl. Make a well.
Add Coconut milk/cream to well and stir.
Add extremely hot water to thick batter. Stir
Heat Skillet on Med to Med-high heat
Add a little oil to coat skillet.
Add 1/2 cup batter or as much as you’d like
(depending on how light or dark you like your pancakes determines the length of cooking time each side)
Add all ingredients in a small saucepan and simmer on Low approximately 5-10 minutes.
Stir Fry is an easy go-to meal that almost any family can make in under 30 minutes. Okra has been a fan favorite for decades in the south. Originally from the indigenous people of the Gold coasts of West Africa, Okra made its way in the bellies of the “New World” in the late 1600’s. However, it’s most commonly known for being included in Creole patois since the 1800’s to the present.
Since Okra and Collard greens are a huge component in the south. I decided to take the two most common items and create a healthy, vegan meal that can be created alongside cornbread and black-eyed peas or as a meal by itself.
My goal was not to overcook the greens so the nutrients still remain in them hence cooking them under 2 minutes.
Here’s the recipe for roasted Okra and Collard Greens stir fry.
1/2 lb okra cut in halves
3 tbls grape seed oil
1/2 tsp sea salt
1 tsp basil
1/4 tsp ground sage
Bake at 400 F approx.10-12 minutes
2 cups chopped collard greens
2 cups chopped Kale
1/2 large Green bell pepper
1 1/2 cup sliced mushrooms
Approx. 3-4 tbls grape seed/Avocado oil
3/4 tbls sea salt
2 cups Garbanzo beans
3/4 cup Black beans
1 cup Quinoa
2 cups water
1/4 cup Kamut Approx
1 cup water
Boil grains as directed on package.
As grains are boiling, preheat oven to 400 F.
Rinse and slice Okra in halves.
Prepare Okra by mixing oils, herbs and sea salt together on a baking sheet.
Bake Okra approximately 10-12 minutes
As Okra is baking, Chop your Sautee mixture.
Heat skillet on Med-High heat with Grapeseed/Avocado oil
Add onions, peppers, and mushrooms first for a few seconds (coat)
Then Add greens and Kale and sautee’ approximately 2 minutes.
By this time, the Okra should be done. Remove and Let cool.
Continuously stir the Greens mixture.
Grains should be done.
Add cooked or canned Garbanzo beans. Add Sea Salt. Stir
(If you want to keep this meal Dr. Sebi approved, do not add Black beans)
Add Black beans. Stir
Add 2 cups cooked quinoa and 1/4 cup cooked Kamut to the mixture.
Stir approx. 1 minute
Add Okra and Enjoy!
*This entire meal was alkaline until we added black beans. If you follow Dr. Debi’s plan, do not add black beans.
Faith gives her the courage to seek where her heart leads.
As she searches for the land and wisdom that’s bestowed within her nucleus, fatigued, she leans against the paved stone. Lands of stones that her Anunnaki ancestors created from pieces of Nibiru. Fixed and aligned with precision, the pyramid in which she leans against, will never be destroyed as the planets from which they derive still exists.
As she leans on the stones of her ancestors, energy is transferred from stone to flesh. With the energy in her body and Ra that exists, she lifts all hands in the symbol of praise to show respect, love, and honor to her people that built the lands that she wishes to call home.
As she walks away from what she was in search to find, her confidence elongates her strength in mind and posture. Orientated, she determines her bearings and leads the way to new found lands, discovering pieces of the inner puzzle of trails to follow. Like lightning, she looks up to them for guidance to move in the right direction and make a strike to expunge all fallacies that existed prior to her arrival.
Once she begins to remember her story, she reflects and reminds them that she will never turn her back on the legacy that the divine nature, principles and laws of her bloodline will not go unclaimed. The more she discovers pieces of herself in the land, the more pugnacious she becomes. Fighting to keep the language and knowledge alive to spread to those unaware.
Not governed by fate, Medu, speaks wise words through divinity. She patiently sits discussing the passing of the living ancestors flowing through the blood of the resurrection of themselves. As the two energies of the Nepti sit in alignment, they set to protect everything that belongs to all life of the planet.
As they split and she turns east, like a nesher, she soars above the earth and the wind impregnates her.
She speaks her own name into existence and there, they walk together, mother and child. The laws of divine beings walk together like the memory of water, just flowing together yet controlling their molecular consciousness.

Meron and the Holy Reign of Inner Peace
Her mind is like a soldier yet her beauty is very pure with grace and significance. Meron, as strong as Mount Simien yet beautiful and evergreen as the Ethiopian flora. Hieratic to her inner peace, she seeks holiness from the plateau of the indigenous that surrounds her flute of divine energy.
The Mekdes is where she sends and receives the gifts of god. Tranquility is an honor of all the lands of freedom but peace comes easy as the light within spreads like the sun’s rays against the Earth’s crust.
Enlightenment wreaks from her pores and the holy oils infused in her genes make up part of her creative being.

As dark as the beginnings of the universe. The symbol of the father oversees Its own birth of its child. Looking ahead to foreshadow its own creation shared through the flesh of Itself.
Endless discoveries expand across borders of the non-existent paradises.
Traveling through lands created as a masterpiece of realms of individual creatures.
As stars align with the comet’s companions, earth’s glory rises beyond rocks harnesses and all arms raise in praise.
Prescribed evolution imitates the creation of the beginning of the hands of God’s birth in regions of the highest heaven.
On Earth, she walks away but looks back as she is in awe of her life’s generation and the existence of the beauty of pieces of art that have come to life by her hands.
And on the last day in her sacred place, she sits and rests upon one of the chosen creatures of the land she has made fertile and abundant with breath.

There’s a movement going on with food. From non-gmo to organic to alkaline foods highly sought after. Lately, I’ve taken part in the vegan and vegetarian movement since July or August of 2015. Experimenting with more alkaline foods has given me a sense of confidence in being healthy not just for myself but so that I am able to lead my kids effectively in having a healthy and optimal life.
Creating meals and snacks similar to the starchy foods we’ve been eating is making the challenge fun, exciting and difficult. So I tried making some Garbanzo bean fries. Although, they were a hit, I’m a perfectionist when it comes to food. So I altered the order of when the salt should be added because I felt the flavor should be in the flour mixture.
In my first try, I added the salt to taste after frying the Garbanzo bean fries, however, I found that adding sea salt, and Onion Powder during the boiling point, made the flavors more salivating. Below is my recipe to simple, yet easy electric fries.
4 cups boiling water
2 cups chickpea flour
1 Tbls sea salt
1/4 tsp Onion Powder
3 cups grape seed oil
1 Tbls Sweet Basil (optional)
Add Sea Salt, Onion powder. Stir.
Add chickpea flour in water
Cook. Stir. Until well mixed approximately 2 minutes on Med-Med/High heat
Pour batter in glass dish approximately 2-3 hours. Chill
Remove from dish and slice like potato fries.
Heat oil and fry until golden on each side
Remove from skillet. Drain. Season to taste w sweet basil or any herb you like.
Recently known for being on Food Network’s, “Chopped.” Chef Tara Kyle is making waves to celebrity status. Not just with food but with her sense of humor, charm, and light. Keeping her southern roots infused in the masterpieces she creates for her clients, she’s winning hearts and souls through her southern cuisine and passion for food with clients asking for more. Born in San Antonio, TX but raised in Lompoc, CA, Chef TK Kyle is a powerhouse and is on her way to master stardom.
Not only is she winning celebrity clients over with her sense of style in the kitchen, but she’s the number one woman in her sons lives. She’s all about setting an exemplary platform for success. Chef Kyle is not just an ordinary chef, but she’s an amazing mother. And when she’s not in the kitchen or on set, she’s living an abundant life of love, laughter, and traveling from coast to coast, leaving a trail of knowledge and accomplishments for others to follow.
Her passion besides food and family is giving back to homeless men and women, feeding them from her soul’s desires of fullness. Her sense of selfless acts is what elevates her to heights that many dream to soar which is why each time she leaves New York, the place where she trained, the streets feels her absence.
We salute Chef TK Kyle for her ambition to strive to greatness and become the woman she’s destined to be.
She embodies gods grace and her virtue lends a hand to the presence of peace and tranquility. Soft spoken-yet confident in every favor of divinity, She reflects on the past but never allows the quality of her charm to reflect the image she is not.
Her good will is a mere reflection of her self-esteem and elegance is an excretion of poise she possess. Happiness surrounds her like bees amongst its nest, transferring energy inside the home of warmth and comfort.
Her appeal comes off as sensually attractive but her mind is deeper than the lust for known parts pleasing to man. And with just one look, she leaves her counterparts asking for more without speaking one word.

Whether you’re a beginner or an advanced fitness enthusiast, Nike has an app that friends are beyond obsessed with including myself. Nike Training Club (N+TC) is an amazing app that’s filled with hundreds of workouts for every fitness level and schedule. Whether you have 15 minutes or 45 minutes, there are workout routines that can fit into anyone’s schedule.
Because my schedule fluctuates daily, I don’t have much time to commit to a full workout plan but this app is perfect for me because it feels like I have my own personal trainer without paying the trainer price tag. I have the ability to finish 15 minutes of cardio, abdominals, arms, glutes, thighs and multiple muscle groups and left with nothing but sweat running down my body. Nike does not play games!
After you download the app, you are able to select a workout based on your goal and fitness activity. The following options being: GET LEAN, GET TONED, GET STRONG, GET FOCUSED. From there you are taken to a menu with a ton of different workouts geared towards the goal you selected. One of the apps coolest features is that there is audio instruction and videos showing you execution of each move if you are unsure what each movement means. If you don’t have a kick ass audio play-list for your workout [you need to get one], you can always listen to your favorite Pandora station and still hear the interactive trainer as well. How cool is that?
My favorite perk is that it tracks your progress! and you can train any and everywhere like a pro. Every workout is calculated by the minutes and as the minutes add up you get rewards or fuel points!!! So set goals and make them. Just do it and get moving!

About a month ago. I bought a box of couscous from Trader Joes. I held on to it until I figured out what and how I wanted to prepare it.
I determined that I should make it like a stir fry. Being that couscous is a staple for Israeli dishes, I decided to experiment with my box.
1 cup couscous
2 cups water
1 cinnamon stick
1 bay leaf
2 Tbs olive oil
1/2 red onion sliced
2 Garlic Cloves
1/8 cup walnuts
1/8 cup chopped spinach
1 tsp Himalayan salt
1 handful dried cranberries
Boil couscous as directed on box.
I boiled couscous in water, bay leaf, and a cinnamon stick. Cover.
Drizzle oil in skillet.
Add onion and minced garlic. Cook approximately 1-2 minutes.
Add walnuts. Stir.
Add Chopped spinach. Stir.
Add the couscous with the bay leaf and cinnamon stick. Stir. Approximately 4 minutes.
Season with salt and Black Pepper (optional)
Top with cranberries. Stir. 1 minute.
It has been one of my dreams to have either my own show about food, family, fashion and fitness. I decided to enter in the Home and Family contest for the Home Cook challenge.
I am going for it because I have always been passionate about food. This is where I show my love for family and friends through putting my energy into the food I create.
Please like, share, comment on my post so that I have the opportunity to be a finalist.
On the go! Whew! No worries, I have you covered for the perfect meal you can prep and cook in ten minutes.
Last week, my daughter went on a field trip and I forgot to make her lunch the night before. There was only 15 minutes left before she needed to leave for school. I had no idea what I would make for her so I started grabbing things I knew would combine well together.
I grabbed this ancient grain pasta, Kamut. Threw it in a saucepan and boiled it. While it was boiling, I grabbed a handful of spiralizer sweet potatoes (yams). Grabbed a skillet and drizzled some Grapeseed oil in there with the sweet potatoes. As that was sautéing on high, I roughly chopped spinach. Threw it in there and stirred it right on up. It started to smell oh so good. Then I added cinnamon and paprika in there because I love adding those two spices to sweet potatoes.
My next thought was, “okay, she needs some beans,” so I added Blavk beans in there for her lunch. Now that was a good choice! I mixed all of those ingredients together then added chickpeas to the mix and sea salt.
I was salivating over that and it wasn’t mine. Oh! But after a sample bite, I knew I needed to make more because just a sample bite was not enough for mind. Once I tried it, I wanted more but I had to quickly remember, this food was not mine. 😁
I mixed it up some more. Then I added some tomatoes in there, drained the kamut pasta and added it into the skillet. Cooked it or a few more minutes and my daughters lunch was done in 8 minutes with time to prep her snack as well.
I had to give myself a pat on the back. For quick thinking and ability to put something together for my daughter to eat.
She was soo excited about her food. Once she returned home from school, she had to tell me about how delicious her lunch was.
2 cups Kamut pasta
1-1 1/2 cup Spiralized sweet potatoes
1 cup chopped spinach
1/2 cup black beans or Kidney beans
1/2 cup chickpeas
1-2 Roma tomatoes
1/2 tsp paprika
1/4 tsp Cinnamon
1 tsp sea salt
1/4 cup pasta water
- Start to boil your pasta as directed (6 minutes)
- While pasta is boiling, sautée sweet potatoes in oil on high
- Add spinach. Stir approx 30 seconds.
- Add cinnamon and paprika. Stir.
- Add chickpeas. Stir.
- Add black beans or kidney beans. Stir. 1-2 minutes
- Add tomatoes. Stir.
- Add 1 1/2 cups cooked pasta. Stir.
- Then add sea salt. Stir.
- Add pasta water. Stir
- Cover approx 1 minute. Then remove lid. Stir.
This easy breezy meal is done! This is the perfect meal for parents on the go or who don’t have much time to slave over cooking a meal.

My overall goal is to make life and cooking simple without spending hours in the kitchen. So creating meals for my hectic schedule which include kids sports practices and games, running a household, running two businesses and homeschooling my kids. I don’t have much time any longer to cook for hours in the kitchen. However, I still want to provide nutritious meals for my family so now I break my meals down to 20-30 minute cooking times but mostly under an hour including prep time.
Below, you will find the simple recipe to add protein and import vitamins and minerals to your vegan, vegetarian, or carnivorous diet.

Starting a new journey to anything is always hard. Whether you’re moving, starting a new school, a new job, a new workout plan or a new meal plan.
My journey to health, healing and happiness started with having my daughter. In the beginning, change was rough and patchy but I moved through it. There have been many ups and downs and in and outs but I am still here moving through the daily struggle of being a mom of 3, a fashion designer, an author, a wife.
In this 3 year journey to weight loss, I have lost weight, gained weight, had fibroids, lost weight, gained a little, hit plateaus, maintained at 170, gained 20lbs and now I’m getting back into my routine to working out.
Eating clean in the past 4 years has not been a problem but being consistent with my fitness level has been a struggle, my weakness. So last week was my first week of doing T25 with Shaun T.
Because my sons play baseball and my oldest made the District team, my schedule surrounds his practices and games. I don’t have much time to drive to the and I don’t like working out at home because I need my space to clear my thoughts and having kids run around while trying to focus on me for an hour is a struggle.
T25 allows me to wake up at 8 am and workout before the kids even eat breakfast. With No interruptions, I can sweat hard with minimal time and still do everything I can within the time I have to work with.
My only problem with T25 was the 5 day fast track meal plan. As you know I’m 93% vegan and 7% vegetarian. Every once in a while, I will have a thin crust cheese pizza with vegetables. The meal plan was not my standard of eating so I created a plan similar to the plan included in the package. This week, I will be posting my 5 Day Vegan fast track meal plan.
Follow my 5 day journey to T25.
