Last month, I touched on avocado and its many benefits, plus featured my Goddess Bliss Avocado Crème for the face and neck area (talk about evening bliss! Go to bed with skin feeling its velvety best!) and my homemade Avocado Mango Facial Mask. Continue your self-care by adding avocado to your diet with these simple recipes to spice up your meals. Avocado works wonderfully as a mayo alternative!

I love to use fresh chives and kale from my garden for these recipes. To save prep time, you can whirl chives and kale together in a food processor or chopper for the right consistency.

Creamy Salmon or Tuna Mix
This is great on a brown rice/Kamut cracker, inside a Romaine lettuce leaf or on a bed of salad, or even on top of quinoa. Remember variety is the spice of life!

Ingredients
Can of salmon (or tuna)
Soft avocado half or whole depending how creamy you like it
Fresh chives, finely chopped
A few leaves of kale
1 red pepper, diced
Half lemon, squeezed with juice set aside.

Mash salmon and avocado together, then mix in finely chopped chives and kale, followed by red pepper. Give it a good mix and finish with lemon juice.

I often enjoy this spread on a Kamut cracker topped with a kale leaf to hold the ingredients on top of the cracker. Add in a fresh mixed green salad (from my garden of course!), farm fresh tomatoes, and a olive oil, balsamic and sea salt vinaigrette for a very nutritious lunch.

Egg Surprise

Ingredients
4 cooked organic farm fresh eggs
Chives and parsley, finely chopped
1 avocado
Optional: Chopped dill pickles or olives , celery – be creative; it’s an easy recipe to adjust to suit your taste!

Roughly chop eggs and mix with mashed avocado, add chive parsley mixture, then extras of your choice. Serve topped with a few basil leaves!

This mixture works well on a bed of organic greens, wrapped in a large lettuce leaf or on top of a Kamut cracker. I enjoy eating this on Kamut cracker served with an organic farm fresh chopped tomato and basil salad with olive oil and sea salt or with sliced cucumber to top and on the side plus cherry tomatoes.

The gift of self-care

I highly recommend trying the Indian Head Massage after a stressful day or week. I arrived after a stressful day my mind was full of busyness and I felt exhausted, after my Indian Head massage treatment I felt relaxed and revitalized, my mind also felt calm, clear and peaceful, it was like my stress just melted away, I will definitely be back for this treatment.

After many treatments and time with Lisa over the past 25 years, I have come to appreciate her spirit, her warmth, and to trust her and her spa as a safe and inspiring center. Recently Lisa helped me see that a facial was nourishment for the skin and also a relaxing massage treatment for healthy radiant glowing skin.

I have been a client of Lisa’s since I was 12 years old. I feel very comfortable at her spa and trust her with my skincare spa services. Being a University student and on a budget I tend to use drug store products on my skin. I decided to invest in Goddess Bliss skincare; it’s been 3 months now. I have noticed many changes and benefits such as my skin feels more balanced, healthy, my dryness has diminished, my skin’s tone is more even I wear less make-up because my skin feels radiant. I now see the value of investing in quality skin care; I am committed to my new regime and love it.  Thank you Lisa for your expertise and creating such an awesome skincare line!

Coming to Lisa for the past 8 years is an important part of my self-care, I look forward to seeing Lisa monthly as her waxing is the most gentle I have experienced. This is more than getting a service it’s become a friendship, someone I trust to share on a personal level.  Her passion for personal growth has also inspired me to be part of her Sacred Circles for women.  I’ve enjoyed this aspect of self-discovery and taking it to a deeper level in a safe setting with other likeminded women. I love taking time to awaken and acknowledge my inner Goddess strengths.

Being in my 50’s I noticed my skin starting to sag so it was now or never to get on this. I contacted Lisa ready to take better care of my skin and also make time for just me to receive some nurturing. Within a week after having my facial treatment and using Goddess Bliss skincare, I noticed big changes. It has been almost a year now, my skin lines have softened my tonicity has improved, my skin feels radiant and alive. Regular monthly massage and facial treatments are a big part of my self-care now, I feel fantastic, I am worth it!  Thank you Lisa!

I love Lisa's monthly circle so much that it has become an essential part of my life - it is a ritual of sensual experience that encompasses aroma, words, song, meditation, movement, and self-expression. Lisa creates an atmosphere of magical beauty and peace that permeates her home; walking into her space is like stepping into a different dimension that we long for in our everyday lives. The sharing and connectedness amongst the group grows deeper with each circle and I leave feeling renewed and refreshed with a sense of joy and peace that filters into all aspects of my being. It grounds me back to my self and the core of goddess magic that resides within all of us but is forgotten in the daily stresses of living. I'm so grateful that I have this unique and beautiful experience to look forward to every month!
