ME. MY. MINE

Kjersti Buaas Hudsen Collective

Me, my, mine? We tend to use these words generously. I first became aware of these patterns in MY-self and decided to start by observing when, how often and in relation to what I was using these simple, yet powerful words. It showed me that it was A LOT! and it was happening in all areas of MY life. I started bringing awareness of how I could use other words to express something very similar and if I would respond differently.  I observed that by saying "the car" instead of my car I sort of (over time) became less attached to the car. Another example is my computer. I noticed I was even saying "well, in MY world or in "MY life". That is kind of bizarre and interesting all at once, why do we even say that? Like I have MY own world and "MY own life"? Is it not true that we are all ONE? Further, we tend to say "MY plans", "MY food", "MY country", MY feelings, MY problems, MY fault, MY husband/wife/partner... That is MINE!!! The ego likes to create a world around itself in the shape of ME, MY MINE. It takes ownership of everything and anything and thrives on defining and compartmentalizes whenever it gets the chance. Wherever you let it. It even says "MY personality" (this is whom I am) and tries to hang on to it whenever it smells change on the horizon. That is how it feels safe. What this really does is create attachment, fear of loss and imaginary walls. Over time, we start to think that we are those things, that emotion or even that relationship. And without it we lose something; we are no longer whole. It separates us from the truth that is we are all one. Crazy huh?

I AM NOT MY INSTAGRAM ACCOUNT

I noticed that by eliminating the words mine, my and me wherever I could, in any area, I even experimented with saying the Instagram account instead of MY Instagram account, I naturally created a lighter environment. I feel less identification and need to get something, like attention in the form of likes or any form of approval.  We can do the same with emotions. We tend to say "you hurt MY feelings" instead of just seeing that these feelings are just passion through us and we don't need to identify with them and cling to them. I wonder sometimes if when we cry its rooted in fear of letting go of (loosing) that emotion? I am not saying that we should get stuck on the level of words, because after all, words and languages are all man made up. Yet, I do think our language is a reflection of the society we live in and we tend to use words that are related to the current  status quo. With that said, It’s quite cool that we can bring attention to how the words are used and how that affects us. We are all different so its going to be different responses and observations. Drop a comment if you want, I am curious to hear your finds of inner awareness

AVOCADO PESTO WITH LENTIL PASTA

Ingredients:

- 1 avocado - 1 garlic clove - The juice from half a lemon - Salt and pepper - 1-2 tablespoons of good olive oil - (1 handful of spinach) - (1 bun basil) - (1 bag of pine nuts or a handful of cashew nuts) - (Possibly broccoli or green peas) - (possibly cherry tomatoes, sun dried tomatoes and parmesan) - Taste with lemon juice, salt and pepper.

This is what you do

Drive all the ingredients to a steady mass with spellmixer or food processor.

What's so nice with this pesto is that the variations are endless. The basic recipe is avocado, garlic, lemon and salt and pepper. Then you can vary with, for example, adding steamed broccoli or green peas. You can use other fresh herbs if you do not have basil and if you do not have pine nuts, you can add cashew nuts for example. Serve the pesto pasta with fresh cherry tomatoes, sun dried tomatoes and vegan, homemade parmesan (0.5 dl nutrient ginger mixed in food processor with 1 clove of garlic, a handful of cashew nuts, salt, pepper and some lemon juice), but it is also good to panfry a little mushrooms to get a little more crunch.

Sweet Potato Gnocci

#VEGGISVEKO DAY 3

Veggisveko søtpotet gnocchi

Ingredients

  • 500 g = 2,5 cups sweet potato

  • 150 g = 1/2 cup ricotta (you can also skip the cheese or use goat cheese)

  • 1 cup shredded parmesan cheese

  • About 2 cups of flour

  • Salt to taste

  • Butter or use olive oil (if cooking on low heat), coconut oil or avocado oil for high temperatures

  • Cayenne to spice it up if you like spice :)

This is what you do

 I added sage to an iron skillet and ate it like this :)

Boil the sweet potatoes until they are completely soft and cool. Then mashed together with ricotta, parmesan and salt. I skipped the cheese and it is completely fine. The add flour little by little, until you get a dough. I actually altered with sorghum and organic corn flower to try to make it glutenfree. I had to add two eggs to get it to stick so if you are not using wheat and eat eggs that is a good option for gluten free. You can even use green banana flour and tapioca flour if you like. Its all about getting a good consistency on the dough. It may be a little sticky in shape, but as long as you have flour on the workbench and hands, it should be fine. Divide the dough into six pieces and roll each piece into a long strip. Cut each strip into gnocchi-sized pieces and roll a fork over each piece to get the classic gnocchi look. Boil a saucepan with water and a little salt. Add the gnocchi and cook until they float up, then they are ready. Heat a frying pan and add butter or I use refined coconut oil. Add the gnocchi and fry until they have a golden color. Serve right away. I added sage to an iron skillet and ate it straight off the pan but you can use the gnocchi in a salads or with a pasta sauce like pesto. It can be enjoyed in many ways :)

TIPS: You may want to make the pasta in advance. Complete all the steps, even the cooking, and gnocchien store in the refrigerator and fry it just before serving. if you have leftover dough the gluten free version made great pancakes :)

RESULT: I made mine with a lot of veggies and ditched the chickpeas and it tasted so good!!!

This is what you do

Oils, onions, garlic, fresh coriander, chili are cooked in a pan of high heat together with cumin, salt, turmeric, ground coriander and ginger for a few minutes. Add more oil if it is too dry on the pan. Then add canned tomatoes and canned chickpeas with either garam masala or spice mix. It's not a crisis if you do not have all of these spices. Add some water if necessary, the masala should have a slightly thick, juicy consistency. Let simmer for 15-20 minutes. Stir occasionally. Season with salt, sugar, chili etc. Remove the heat and stir in 1ss lemon juice. Can be eaten as it is, then it is enough for one person or server with rice or quinoa, for example, it's enough for two.





What is The easiest way to reduce our Greenhouse Gas Emissions?

If everyone in Norway eats one vegetarian meal a week, it has the same effect as removing 170 000 cars from the roads for a whole year (1). If everyone in the world turned vegetarian, it would reduce the Greenhouse Gas Emissions related to food production by 60 %. Moreover, if everyone turned vegan, it would further reduce the emissions by 10 % (2). Since food-related emissions account for about 15% of total global emissions (1), this will, in other words, have a very big effect. It may not be realistic to expect everyone to turn vegan or even vegetarian overnight, but if we all eat a little bit less meat, it will help! It might even ensure our children and grandchildren can experience the same wonderful and snowy winters we've been so lucky to live through.

Gidget would like some of this yummy soup!!

Sprinkle the squash into pieces and serve in a refractory form, together with a finely chopped garlic clove, or just roast the squash whole in the oven with garlic. Pour over some good olive oil, salt and pepper and bake in the oven at 350 F/ 200 degrees until the squash is completely soft, it usually takes about 30-40 minutes depending on how big the pieces are. Clean the chickpeas and have in a different refractory form. Pour over some olive oil, salt and pepper. Peppercorns, chiliflakes, dried basil and turmeric are also good to have over, take what you have. Put in the oven at the same time as the pumpkin and shake for about 30-40 minutes. You can also simply roast all these ingredients in an iron skillet. Keep track of the chickpeas regularly, because they can burn quickly. Take out the trays and cool everything. This is when the chickpeas become crispy. Blend with 1 can of coconut milk. Have more or less coconut milk depending on how thick you want the soup. Pour the soup back into a pan and heat. Roast pine nuts with fresh sage on low to medium heat. Serve the soup hot and add pine-nuts and salt + pepper to taste.

Serves 3-4
