There’s two short videos for you here. Both pumpkin themed.
In the top one you’ll find the steps for prepping your own seeds from your pumpkins (these are much healthier & tastier than what you’ll pick up bagged at the shop).
Or scroll down for a recipe of how to make a face mask from your pumpkin off cuts. It’s full of benefits for your skin, and it’s chemical free.
Prepping Your Own Pumpkin Seeds –
Buying stuff off a shelf can detach us from our food.
Even something as complete as nuts and seeds won’t offer you the full nutrition as prepping them yourself from fresh. Often this isn’t practical, but when it comes to Halloween and you’re lopping the top of a great big pumpkin, it’s the perfect opportunity.
Seeds are designed for growing. They contain all manner of delicate nutrients, but are also protected by anti-nutrients to help them last through until it’s time to grow.
Shop bought seeds have these the wrong way around. They contain all of the bad stuff which will reduce your ability to absorb nutrition, but all of the good stuff has been destroyed by blasting at a high heat.
We’re going to prep these seeds, and flip that in our favour.
Digestion is at the core of our vitality. If you find yourself with any kind of digestive issues or fatigue, then getting back connected with your food and understanding nutrition is a great way to seek simple improvements.
The Pumpkin Face Mask –
Once you’ve finished with your carving, blend up your pumpkin cut outs and make yourself this face mask for a well deserved pamper!
It’s quick and simple and I’m not joking when I say it really works, I was incredibly impressed!
The ingredients are all fresh and raw and packed with nutrition and enzymes that your skin will love. Shop bought struggles to compete with something this alive. It moisturises, tightens pores and exfoliates.
Let me know if you give it a go!
These are the first videos that I’ve made in a format that will become part of the larger segment called ‘Winglewood Links’.
They’ll continue with great variety, as we explore together the many tips and understandings that will help us become better connected with our world.
I used my pumpkin to get to grips with the process, and wanted to get these videos out to you while it’s Halloween. But the ideas are of course endless, and I’ll be asking for you to get involved shortly.
I’ll bring you more info on that in the coming weeks.
In the meantime if you’re interested in becoming more connected with your food, you could have a read through the introduction to Fantasy Fast Foods.
