A Very Happy New Year Everyone! Welcome 2018
This Sat Jan 6th we re open and start another year of the organic food market that takes places every week and houses some of Ireland’s finest, dedicated food producers. In addition to all our long standing organic farmers, butcher, fishmonger, baker, delis and wholefoods health food shop, we are delighted to welcome some new additions in the area of authentic Latin American cuisine and ingredients with Colombian producers Mi Pequeña Colombia, The Weed Solution; a speciality hemp producer who sell everything hemp from therapeutic use CBD oil to bags, paper and cosmetics. Hemp has many important qualities and benefits to health. We also have wonderful new zero waste cosmetics stall WolfGarden which will introduce you to healthier beauty in healthier ways alongside a new resident market naturopath who sells herbal tonics and remedies. We can’t wait to share all the health and community buzz with you this year.
THIS JANUARY, I WILL BRING
INTO MY SCHEDULE TO CREATE
THAT MATTER MOST TO MY
Setting intentions can change your life. And you can set them at any time but it always feels powerful to start a new year with intention setting – I think intentions rather than resolutions are a more healthful, helpful and powerful way to think about changes, potential, or goals rather than the pressure associated with resolutions, though if you are resolved to do something that is fantastic that you are at that wilful point.
If there’s one thing I’ve learned, it’s that we will keep recreating the same cycles and toxic situations until we actually learn the damn lessons. So if you haven’t taken some quiet time to write and reflect on 2017 and set some concrete goals for 2018… it’s not too late. It’s always helpful to spend some time alone and take accountability and allow yourself see your own heart’s desires and or really listen to the lessons (don’t shy away the harsher the lesson the more you have to gain!) for they are the teachers, the coaches, and motivators – they happen so they can help, heal and support you!
On Saturday I am hosting a small meet up for anyone who would like to come and explore how to effectively set intentions and get the habit of envisioning your goals started.
Go Organic for 2018
One thing that will help heal and support you on your life’s journey is eating right and that means organic. You cannot nourish yourself truly by eating food grown with toxic agrichemicals that destroy the soil – a precious resource that cannot be replaced once depleted, and destroy your health. The change this will bring into your life is extraordinary. You don’t need to do anything the purity and goodness of this food bought directly from the people who produce it will work its own magic on you. I promise.
When you buy direct you are supporting small business, families, and know where your food comes from. You are also supporting the environment and your health and your budget. Organic is very affordable and good value bought directly from the producers. It is tastier, fresher and higher in antioxidants and omega 3’s as well as the most importantly what is not in it!! Make the change this year and see the change it makes in your life, your energy, your mindset and your pleasure of good food. This would be a wonderful goal – a weekly shop once a week at our market. A habit that will flourish in everyway for you.
The Epiphany Jan 6th
And talking of epiphanies this Saturday is the feast of The Epiphany, the visit of the three kings known as the journey and adoration of the magi to the Christ child king. It is a much-celebrated feast in Spain, Portugal, France, Italy, Parts of Canada and New Orleans. It was a feast celebrated in my family from having lived in Spain and other parts of the world for many years and my own son is named after one of the kings; the three being Caspar, Melchior and Balthazar. We are celebrating it at SuperNatural when we reopen and all are welcome to taste the wonderful king cake of Mi Pequeña Colombia and invite the wisdom and magic of the feast day into their life for the year ahead!
