“Then indecision brings its own delays,

And days are lost lamenting o’er lost days.

Are you in earnest? Seize this very minute;

What you can do, or dream you can, begin it;

Boldness has genius, power and magic in it.”

Goethe

I have spoken about this issue before on countless occasions, as I am repeatedly reminded of tis importance!

On a trip to the USA last year, I discovered the most delicious essene bread at Whole Foods. It was grainy and soft and full of flavour and of course terribly healthy!! It was exactly what I was looking for. It was a raw bread made from sprouted whole wheat berries, dehydrated to form a loaf and sweetened with natural fruit juices and dates- I adored it, and returned on a near daily basis to buy more during my sojourn.

I dreamt of eating it back home and made it a point to purchase one before heading back home. I lovingly wrapped up the frozen bread into a few bags to maintain its freezing point as long as possible and was able to transport it home safe and soundly!

My first attempts at creating raw chocolate pralines last year were a disaster, and when I found a recipe for chocolate chip cookies in my new book Everyday Raw, by raw food chef, Mathew Kenny, the photos looked convincing enough to give it a try. I must admit, that this recipe is not a quickie. I needed 2 days to create it. On day 1, I made the chocolate morsels (chips) for the cookies and waited for them to dry ( I still have to work on creating the perfect morsel shape…not so great….as you can see in the photos below). On day 2, I made the actual “cooke dough” and then waited for that to dry. As I waited for each element to dry, my expectations rose and rose and rose. I can definitely say that this process was an excellent example of the practice-of-patience.
