My secret to balancing out my vata is baking. It calms me. It’s my meditation at times that arrives with yummy goodies from the oven. If my mind is chattering, one of the most nourishing ways for me to ground is to start baking or cooking. This week there was a lot of wind in Santa Fe. I thought I might fly away, good thing I found this yummy gluten free oatmeal cookie recipe. I thought that I’d share this recipe, because I can’t seem to stay away from the goodness of these cookies! By the way, they are packed with good for you fats like coconut oil, and walnuts. Yum!
