Do you ever crave something that is sweet and crumbly and buttery, and is reminiscent of a muffin- but better? Something that is calming and soothing to your soul and mind, while melts in your mouth and tastes like love?
Adding lavender to baked goods is one of the most amazing experiences you could give yourself- so unique in taste, sweet and gentle.
Why do I crave baked goods?
When we crave baked goods it is the perfect opportunity to go to work on our selves.
The first thing we can ask ourselves: why am I craving this scone or cookie or muffin?
Sometimes, we'll get a quick answer right away and we'll intuitively know why. Sometimes, the answer might not be so clear. And that is perfect- this is then an opportunity to be gentle with yourself and keep practicing, until the answers start flowing to you.
Here some ideas and examples of why we might be craving a scone, cookie, and muffins:
I want to be grounded and feel secure. I am tired and want to be energetic. I want some love and comfort. I want to be warm and comfy.
So, now what?
Once you know why you are craving a scone, cookie, muffin, or other baked good- you can eat it with consciousness.
1. You can enjoy what you are eating, knowing that you are providing your body with exactly what it needs.
2. You can also look deeper into why you are feeling these things and why you might want to be grounded, why you want love, why you want to be comforted. Start asking yourself more questions about this.
3. You can then delve into filling these needs beyond what you are eating. Is there a specific hobby or activity that would fulfill these needs? Is there a dream you have been neglecting? Would taking a bath or reading a book or getting a massage provide you with what you need?
In the mean time, here is a delicious, nutritious, totally out of this world scone recipe!!!
