Pecan, Walnut and Mushroom Tacos (Vegan, paleo!)

Two days in a row, lucky y’all! It’s Taco Tuesday and I couldn’t miss this opportunity to share another recipe.

After talking about crystals and new moons, renewing energy and everything, I thought about how the world around us really impacts us. How we feel better when we’re outside, at the beach, in the mountains, whatever. How the earth has its own vibration, and how we’re always happiest when we seek to align with it.

Have you ever heard of the Schumann Resonance? It’s continuous electro-magnetic waves that operate at a low frequency in Earth’s ionosphere.  The waves, though they don’t move like ocean waves, move in a continuous state in such long wavelengths, that they coordinate in tandem with one another, and their timing is so specific that the crests and low-points correspond with seasonal changes each year. It operates at an average frequency of 7.83 Hz.

Why is that relevant? Well – a friend shared today that there was a total blackout about 4 days ago, which is still occurring. While I admittedly don’t know the scientific significance of a blackout, intuitively – it seems like a circuit overloading the breaker tripping. We are wired to coordinate with earth’s energetic frequencies. Prey animals are programmed to give birth at night (under the safety of darkness), menstrual cycles are 28 days, high tide and low tide dictate even modern fishing and boating habits, and we adapt to our living situations based on the season, which is dictated by an earth pivoting on a magnetic axis. And science, blah blah blah.

Having said that, I think it’s really important to acknowledge that this can have an impact on our lives, perhaps more significant than a full or new moon. The very rock we are living on is experiencing a different spike in its frequency, which would make sense that things be more intense, “different”, or just overwhelming. I’ve had a lot of wild stuff happen in the last 4 days, and I think it’s important to just be patient with ourselves as we navigate an intense period of energetic change.

Laymen’s terms – what’s that mean? If you’re stressed, be patient. If you’re feeling depressed or anxious, be compassionate. If you’re finding others a bit more irritable, be loving. Our bodies are impacted from environmental factors on a very small basis, let alone large electromagnetic earth waves. Just something to think about as we navigate this time.

On a less intense note, back to Taco Tuesday. I’d been watching some videos and I felt inspired after a marathon of 7 days eating meat. Behold – vegan tacos…. Keto style!

This involves no starchy vegetables, and all the good fats and proteins. The mystery meat? NUTS.

Yes, for real. Nuts. And mushrooms.

Stay with me, I promise you it’s good. It even has the texture of meat, and it doesn’t need to be piping hot when you eat it on a hot summer day! Perfect Taco Tuesday.
