How Nature Nurtures you.This Spring, walk.Take the time to take a walk in the park, beach, or city sidewalks to notice the world around you. A little reminder from me, I recommend wearing looser garments as a new flowing skirt with a leaf and floral motifto boost your energy.Notice and be conscious when you walk how you will breathe air into your lungs, helping to stimulate the new flow of energy into your life.Think when you inhale, new opportunities that you wish to create and when you exhale, let go of the fear and negativity.This will help you “breathe” in this new Spring season.

Stiletto Heal©- Food to Fuel your Soul

The taste is green- Slightly peppery with a touch of clove. It gives a flat taste a bit of sparkle, great in risotto and polenta.
Thyme Grilled Swordfish
Thyme and garlic-scented olive oil is great on eggplant, bell peppers or tofu, as well as fish.It lets youperfume grilled or broiled foods without worrying about delicate herbs burning and spoiling the taste.
A small handful of fresh thyme sprigs
2 cloves of garlic, peeled
2 tbsp olive oil
1 pound swordfish (with no dark parts) about ½ thick
Put the thyme into a small sauté pan and gently pound it with a pistol to release its fragrant oils. Add the garlic and olive oil, and cook over medium-low heat until warm and fragrant, about 2 to 3 minutes. Remove the pan from the heat, discard the garlic, and let the oil cool, covered, before using.
Prepare the grill or preheat the broiler. Brush both sides of the swordfish with about 2 teaspoons of the thyme oil. (Brushing the fish instead of the grill will help keep the fish from sticking.) Grill or broil the fish about 5 inches from the heat source until cooked through, about four minutes on the first side and two minutes on the second side.
