Nourishing your Body during these Dark Months

Gillian Adamo

To live in one of the most amazing vacation destinations in the world is a gift. I mean come on its pretty freaking amazing to wake up every morning and be able to take a long walk on a beach in HAWAII. Everyday 1,000's of Americans, and people all over the world for that matter, sit at their desks, at home, in a coffee shop, as the crazy city buzz's around them while they dream of a trip to Hawaii. During that time here we are living the salty sandy sweet island life. It is very rich here and I mean rich as in an abundance of Friends, Family, organic fruits and veggies from friends farms, Sun, Adventures, its all endless!  

All I'm seeing these days is the news for all of you out there on the mainland is " MORE SNOW FORECASTED FOR THIS WEEKEND".......I'm sure it's getting a tad old!! I mean I'm not even in that weather and I'm over here like " MORE? MORE SNOW???" If you are enjoying it I am so happy and glad but for many....I'm sure your not. 

SO. I want to try and help you get through this hard winter season as well as I can. This is a rough time no sun, no flowers blooming in the park, Long dark nights. It's a time where we need to be giving our bodies all these healthy vitamins we get in the summer months from Sunlight, from sweet smells, from all the fresh veggies, from being active. So in order to nourish our bodies as best we can during these cold dark months I highly suggest incorporating the fallowing into your winter lifestyle. 

First off NOURISHING FOOD. Its the most IMPORTANT thing you can give your body. I don't mean getting takeout from the place down the street or the "Organic pizza" joint that you tell yourself is healthy because its "ORGANIC" but its still a bunch of dough and cheese. I mean cooking yourself a beautiful wholesome warm NOURISHING MEAL. If you don't have a kitchen or are unable to make yourself food for some reason, Then I suggest finding a restaurant that caters to either Ayurvedic diet or somewhere that makes fresh soups or dishes from organic wholesome ingredients (not the Pizza joint though!). Why I say Organic Wholesome Ingredients and why I think its so important is because when you eat food that isn't ORGANIC it doesnt have the same MINERALS. The food has been created in a Lab a lot of the time and has been GENETICALLY MODIFIED to suite the needs of most customers. MORE FOR YOUR BUCK such as BIG Tomatoes instead of smaller ones where you may have to buy 3 instead just buy 1 JIANT one that could be mistaken for a pumpkin, thats just one example but there is many! 

IMG_4940.jpg

I have collected from my personal cookbook.......That one day will be published....one of my favorite winter recipes. This is a dish that will kick any flu solve your hunger AND keep you warm and happy during these dark months.

I give to you KITCHARI. Kitchari is a very thick soup style dish with a base of Basmati Rice and Mung Dahl (It's a split mung bean). Mung Dahl is full of lots of protein and dietary Fiber. Yellow Mung Dahl is very Nourishing and strengthening to all tissues in the body and is very soft on the digestive system.

1/2 cup basmati rice
1 cup mung dal (split yellow)
6 cups (approx.) water
1/2 to 1 inch ginger root, chopped or grated
a bit of mineral salt (1/4 tsp. or so)
2 tsp. ghee
1/2 tsp. coriander powder
1/2 tsp. cumin powder
1/2 tsp. whole cumin seeds                                                                                                                  1/4 tsp. of Fresh Cayenne
1 Inch of fresh turmeric rood grated or 1/2 tsp. turmeric powder
Handful fresh cilantro leaves
1 and 1/2 cups of a combination of Sweet potato, Cauliflower or Broccoli, and carrots.                                                                                        1 Cup of Fresh Kale or Swiss Chard chopped in strips.

Rinse Rice and Mung Dahl. Soak for 30 minutes to 3 hours. Drain. In a large soup pot over medium heat add 2 teaspoons of Ghee, The coriander Powder, Cumin Powder, and Cayenne Pepper. Cook until fragrant, about 3 minutes. Then add freshly grated or chopped Ginger root, turmeric, and vegetables leaving out the Kale or Swiss Chard. Cook another 3 minutes. Add rice and lentils toss until coated in the ghee and spices. Add enough water to cover the lentils, rice, and Vegetables to the first digit on your index finger. let cook on medium low for about 15 minutes stirring often. As it cooks it will thicken and you may need to add more water. You don't want it to dry out but you don't want it soupy and runny. A nice thick stew consistency is what you're looking for. 

After about 20-25 minutes of cooking test rice and lentils to see if done. When its ready add Kale or Swiss Chard and salt to taste. I recommend serving with a nice fresh Naan bread that you can make yourself or most health food stores carry them. Kitchari can be kept in the fridge for about 6 days. ENJOY!

CALLING ALL BANANA BREAD LOVERS!

Gillian Adamo

For some reason I have been surrounded by Banana breads lately, really, everywhere I go some one is putting a fresh warm right out of the oven piece of it in my face!  So I don't know if its because of that or because of the large bunch of rotting bananas on my counter that inspired this recipe to come about but it came, at 2 in the morning a few nights ago. I don't know if you have that problem of great ideas, epiphanies, or in my case,  recipes coming to you at brutally late hours of the night, waking you up out of your wonderful deep sleep?! Well I do! 

So the other night I wake up at 2 am with this wonderful idea for a banana bread with a delicious buttery, cinnamony ( I know that's not a word, but I just made it one, WHAT), macadamia nut streusel layered in the center of the loaf. I got up and wrote it down in a half asleep state, eyes 1/4 opened and in the dark, it wasn't pretty. 

I had bananas from my neighbors tree, Macadamia nuts from a friends tree, and fresh vanilla beans from another friends vanilla orchard here on Maui! 

So DUH! Of coarse I'm going to make something with those amazing ingredients! 

Here's the recipe, Please try it and give me feedback! 

Streusel

  • 3/4 Cups of Macadamia Nuts, Pulsed in a food processor 
  • 1/4 cup Brown Sugar
  • 1/4 Cup Cane Sugar 
  • 1/2 Teaspoon of cinnamon
  • 1/4 Cup of Coconut flour
  • 1/2 Cup of melted Butter
  • A pinch of sea salt

 

For the Bread

  • 3-4 large very ripe bananas, mashed
  • 1/2 Cup Coconut Oil
  • 1/2 Cup Sugar
  • 2 Eggs lightly beaten
  • 1 Teaspoon of Vanilla extract
  • 1 Teaspoon of Cinnamon
  • 1 Teaspoon of baking soda
  • A pinch of Salt
  • 1 1/2 Cups Flour or Gluten free flour, I like to use a mix of 1/2 cup of rice flour, 1/4 cup of coconut flour, 1/2 cup of oat flour, and 1/4 cup of garbanzo, if I choose to make it gluten free.

 

For Topping (optional) 

  • 1 Banana sliced in half length wise
  • 3 squares of Butter
  • Cinnamon for sprinkling 
  • Brown sugar for sprinkling

 

Oven 350F

Lightly grease a 9” Loaf pan.

Begin by making Streusel, Pulse Macadamia nuts in a blender or food processor until they resemble a chunky meal. Add them to a medium bowl with sugars, salt, Cinnamon, Flour, and melted butter. Mix well. Set aside.

Mash bananas in a large bowl with a potato masher or a fork. In a small bowl lightly whisk eggs together, add them to the bananas with the Coconut oil, sugar, Vanilla extract, Cinnamon, baking soda, and a pinch of salt. mix to combine. Add flour, mix just to combine. 

Poor half the batter into your prepared loaf pan. Evenly sprinkle your streusel onto of your batter, poor the remaining batter over top. Place 1 of your sliced banana halveson top with your three squares of butter and sprinkle with cinnamon and brown sugar.

Place in preheated oven for 35-45 minutes. To check if your Banana bread is done stick a tooth pick in the center of your loaf, if it comes out clean it is ready. 

Cool for ten minutes in loaf pan before removing it and allowing it to cool on a wire wrack. you can also leave it in the loaf pan for easy storing.

 

ENJOY! 

DREAMS COME TRUE IN POLIPOLI

Gillian Adamo

If you live on Maui or have spent time here I'm sure you have been or heard of polipoli. It's up on Haleakala and its this beautiful road that winds up the mountain for hours! It's absolutely stunning you start by driving through grassy medows that smell sweet and dewy. As you start to get higher in elevation the terrain begins to get damp and foresty, it reminds me of being in the forests in Canada. There's this very slight mist that delicately lays low on the road and the trees that line it. As you get even further it begins to get dry and not so many trees, you begin to reach above the tree line and the plants are low shrubsand vines that intertwine with each other across the dry dusty dirt. 

IMG_2030.JPG

I absolutely love it up there, I escape there whenever I can. It makes me feel like I can reset my whole system if I'm feeling off or just keep me moving along.....sanely!  It's the place I first kissed my first love, which was a magical experience. It's where I went after I found out I was pregnant with my little Coyote who never made it to this crazy world but now protects me from the other side. When I have questions I go lay in the grassy hills and let the bees whisper in my ear their secrets.

So you get the point it's freaking amazing....GO! 

Oh and did I mention it's loaded with Pueos?! (Owls) well it is and they fly around and hunt for mice! It's just amazing! 

Also as you drive up the road you pass Alii Kula Lavender Farm which is AMAZING! check out their website for directions and info http://www.aliikulalavender.com , It's makes polipoli road smell of fresh lavender! They have the most stunning gardens and lavender puffs! Really that's what the lavender fields look like small purple and green cotton balls sitting perfectly on the reddish dirt of the volcanic hills they rest on. The sound of bees humming while they gather pollen from the blooming little bushes is a constant light buzz in the air. They have a lovely little gift shop you can walk through and buy yummy body creams, shaving creams, perfumes, you can get a lovely cup of tea and scones as well!

POLIPOLI is a lovely way to spend your morning or afternoon....or entire day like I do!  

I went up there a couple days ago for a nice brisk walk and found 3 PUEO FEATHERS!!! It was amazing! I have never found 1 before and I found 3!! I took that as a very good sign! I'm auspicious in that way though I'm all about magic, spells, love potions, and all those witchy things! Ha!  

This afternoon I found time to escape there again, it was raining and absolutely beautiful! its better when its raining I think:) There were all these snails crawling across the wet road, they were so peaceful and small! 

I'm telling you there's a new little gift waiting for me every time I go up there! And you too if you make it up there;)

It's a magical place and I just had to share that goodness with ya'll😊  

A Mermaid with Tattoos at Dusk

Gillian Adamo

photography by presley+jude

It was a stormy evening, she came ashore to stretch her limbs in preparation for a complete transformation. She was marked with the temporary tattoos that would soon fade with the tides of change. Because alas nothing is ever permenant.

photography by presley+jude

It was dusk, she rested on the black lava rocks still warm from the days sun. 

The wind blew lightly through her hair, dried her tears of happiness and complete exceptence of the growing light that had been placed inside of her to carry. 

photography by presley+jude

As she stood facing the sea to the north, her hands placed on her belly she smiled and told the light it was time to shine above in the night sky. As she said these words the light appeared in her palms as a bright white pearl. She kissed it and raised her palms to the sky, it lightly lifted and soared into the darkening galexy where it perched high in the stars to always shine down on her at anytime. 

She will never be in darkness again.

Gscout played with Girl with the Temporary Tattoo recently and this is what came out of that lovely playdate we had together!

SUMMERTIME MANGO PIE

Gillian Adamo

IMG_1901.jpg

When summer time rolls around in Hawaii, the air has the slightest hint of mango to it. It’s the time of year that there is fruit falling off trees everywhere! The smell of fruit which has ripened too quickly for you to even get to and has fallen to the ground and begun to turn into a liquor is no joke here! It’s happening everywhere you look!

Mangos are not native to Hawaii but they are a taste I grew up with and that will always bring me back to my home in Haiku no matter where I am in the world, its does it every time!         Wherever you are in the world while you begin your journey with this recipe, I do hope every bite will make you feel like you are sitting in the sun under a nice palm tree listening to the wind blow through the palm fronds. 

 


Pie Crust 

  • 2 1/2 Cups gluten free flower ( I use Arrowhead Mills Gluten free pancake and baking mix which you can get at any health food store, If you can’t find it Bobs Red Mills also makes a great gluten free baking flour mix)
  • 1/2 Cup cold butter cut into cubes
  • 1/2 Cup cold vegetable shortening 
  • Pinch of salt
  • Ice Water

Place flour, salt, butter, and shortening in a large bowl and use your hands to combine the ingredients until small pebbles form.

Add the ice water, begin with 3 teaspoon and combine, if its still dry add one more, you want it to come together but not be wet.

Place a large piece of parchment paper down on your counter, form you crust into a ball and place in the center of the parchment paper. Place another piece on top of your piecrust and roll into a flat 9’’ circle with a rolling pin. Place into your pie plate and flute the edges. Freeze for 30 minutes while you make the filling. If the recipe calls for a baked pie crust, bake at 400F for 10 minutes after chilling the crust and before filling.

 


Mango Filling

  • 2 1/2 Cups pureed mango
  • 1 block of firm silken tofu
  • 1/2 Cup of sugar
  • 1 Tbsp of fresh squeezed lemon juice
  • 1/4 cup of coconut flour, or other flour of your choice

Remove skin from your mangos, cut all the meat off the center seed and add to a blender, puree with the tofu.

Add to a medium sauce pan and cook on medium low until it begins to bubble. Add the sugar and cook a few moments, add the flour and lemon juice, cook another 3 minutes.

IMG_1897.jpg

Remove from heat and poor into your prepared pie crust.

bake at 350F for 30-40 minutes. A good way to test if it is done is to lightly jiggle it, if the center still seems runny return it to the oven checking every 5 minutes until it seems firm.

 

Remove from oven and let cool. This pie is best cold, so if you can cool completely then place in fridge for a few hours before serving. 

Serve with a dollop of fresh whip cream. Recipe Below.

  • 1 pint of fresh whip cream 
  • 2 TBSP sugar
  • 1 tsp Vanilla extract

Add all ingredients to a bowl of a hand held mixer or place in a blender and whip until thick. about 1-2 minutes. Be careful not to over whip or you will be left with butter. Store in container in the fridge, it will last a few days. 

Enjoy!

Last August I took a trip to Europe, Spain, and Morocco. It was the most inspiring moment in my life so far. So many people and cultures it was overwhelmingly amazing and got my creative juices overflowing!! 

All I can say is MOROCCO! Holly amazing, I was at home there......for three days..I know morocco for three days and you felt at home? But how?! It was crazy but it totally had me wrapped around its little moroccan finger, and I couldn't have been happier about it. While I was there I saw textiles and fabrics like I had never seen, colors, textures, materials! As a designer I fell its completely necessary to travel outside your country for inspiration, you see and experience what the other part of the world have to offer and it gets you thinking outside the box. 

Anyway as I go on and on about Morocco here are some photos for you to get a little taste of the beautiful country, its coors, and inspiration for our designs to come!

 Moroccan wall art was huge in this little town of Asilah, all the buildings were white with blue detailing either on the bottom of the building or along the top. Because of all the white walls people got creative and began doing murals on all the blank canvases. It was stunning! There was also no shortage of little furry friends Like this little sleeping kitty.

 This town was so peaceful, We walked for hours threw the veins of the inner town marveled by the quietness and little gems of paintings and beautifully kept quart yards we came across. There was no people anywhere, except for these two young boys we came across within the maze.      I will be back soon....

Power to the Morning!

Gillian Adamo

This morning I am creating my favorite power smoothie taught to me by my amazing aunty Aloe. He is quite possibly the most vibrant beauty I have ever met. Since he was a very young boy he has striven towards being as beautiful and healthy as he possibly can. Over the years he has found a way of eating that is so clean and works perfectly for him and it shows in his vibrant skin and vitality. Everything he ingests is Organic, and lots of Fresh fruit and veggies. He eats lots of kale with his yummy special tahini sauce, (which I will post in a later post stay tuned:), Quinoa, Nuts, and the odd pint of Acai sorbet;). 

I think that is the key to health, finding YOUR way that works best for YOU, every body is different so what works for one may not work for you. Everything you ingest affects your everyday life, your skin, your energy, the way you focus, everything! Try after your next meal to close your eyes and tune into yourself and see "How does my body feel right now" , fed, too full, heavy, tired...etc. This is how you will start to find what works for you. 

SO....This amazingly juicy yummy energy packed Power smoothie! Aloe has found a way to combine some amazing ingredients that will cleans your body and make you feel AMAZING!

Now I must warn you, when you cleanse you start to purge all those toxins that have been locked up in your body for so long. This is good its what you want, all that stuff will make you sick in the end if you don't get it out, but you may feel a little strange for a few days. Its ok just push through it and it will pass and you will start to feel better than you ever have! I PROMISE! 

This is Aloe:) 

|| INGREDIENTS ||                                                                                                                                   Buy all organic if possible. This Recipe makes 2 smoothies, you can save one for later in the fringe but should be drunken that day. 

1 large arm of Aloe Vera, If you don't have an aloe plant near by you can buy pure aloe juice from your local health food store. 

2 Large Juicy Oranges

Half an Avocado Optional, I promise it makes the smoothie so creamy and extra yummy!

1 Acai Pack, I buy the Sambazon Acai packs. Costco sells them.

1 1" nob of fresh Tumeric Root

1 1" nob of fresh Ginger Root

See what I mean about ARM of Aloe Vera?!!

Here are just a few of the good health benefits Aloe Vera has to offer.

1. Detoxifying

Aloe vera juice is crammed full of amino acids, vitamins and minerals making it one of nature’s most effective cleansers. ‘It can help strengthen digestion and rid the body of any nasty waste, thus detoxifying the body naturally,’ says Sebastian. ‘Its main property is to be soothing, cooling and moistening which helps to clear inflammatory and irritating heat, such as in menopause, plus inflammatory skin and digestive problems, such as acne, rosacea and IBS.’

2. Supports the immune system 

Aloe vera is packed full of immune-boosting polysaccharides which help the immune system to behave properly. ‘Too much inflammation in the body can cause problems within the immune system and can cause conditions like asthma, eczema and Crohn’s disease. Soothing herbs like aloe vera juice can slow the inflammatory cascade and help reorder the immune response to prevent these conditions.’ 

3. Lowers cholesterol and blood sugar

There is some evidence to suggest aloe vera lowers cholesterol and has a positive effect on blood sugar levels, meaning it can be useful for treating diabetes and obesity. 

4. Excellent for digestion

It's worth trying for anyone who suffers with digestion problems like IBS. Its healing and soothing properties can help with the painful symptoms.

5. An easy way to boost your vitamin and mineral intake

Aloe vera juice is packed with vitamins A, C, E, B1, B2, B3, B6, B12 and folic acid. It’s also rich in minerals like calcium, magnesium, zinc, iron, selenium and potassium. Sounds pretty good, right?

6. Hair growth

Full of natural vitamins and enzymes that can directly promote healthy hair.

7. Good for burns, acne and hydrating skin

When used topically aloe vera can soothe inflamed skin and enhance collagen and hyaluronic acid to help rejuvenate skin.
