Ila's Ital Meals with Quinoa Sprouted Lentils Papaya Cream dressing

Selamta! 
Love and Strength,

Just to give an idea of what  I eat regularly I am showing what I ate for breakfast and lunch today, and giving my papaya or pawpaw cream dressing which again is just an adjustment to me seasoned ginger dressing, but just so creamy in texture and sweet yet filled with the fire of onion and ginger!

Breakfast part one and two, 
Smoothie, now I don't think one should mix acidic with alkaline fruits when juicing, I plan to read up more on that, but this morning I had bounty as I restocked my fruits and I just wanted everything in sight! So 

Tropical Juice breakfast drink (for when you can indulge)
Make in the big blender 

1 banana
1/4 pawpaw
1/4 watermelon
Juice of one ripe orange
Cup of clean/spring water, coconut if u have it! 
I am patiently, (not so patiently)  waiting on my tree to be ready again.

Press liquefy on the blender. 

This is a thick smoothie that will give good energy to start the day. I had after yoga stretching. I do sun salutation combined with the 25 steps of Queen Afua's Womb Dance  which can be found in Sacred Woman or she has a chart I hope to get.

Then I made a wrap

Chick peas not crushed or anything just cooked.
Kale
Patchoy or bokchoy 
Pine to
Tomato 
Cucumber

Vinegarette



3 tbsp apple cider vinegar or juice of 1-2 lemons
1.5 tbsp coconut oil for cooking
Dash Sea salt and/or vegan seasoning salt
Dash oregano leaves dried and all type of dried leaves
Piece of  rosemary fresh from the garden
Dash turmeric
Dash cumin
These two spices I use them in everything! 

Shake it well. I don't put in the fridge as it doesn't last past two days, but you can.

Then I have some store bought wraps and put it together. I really haven't won making wraps but it is essential to not buy these items that have in preservatives. Wraps is only a once monthly indulgence for me because I don't make them. An alternative to wrap is Sada Roti or flat bread or anything that you can get fresh or make yourself!



Lunch



Rainbow Salad 
This time I Used these ingredients 



Tomato - I have from a little girl eaten this everyday, can't not have it!
Kale
Patchoy
Purple or red cabbage
Red sweet pepper
Pimento pepper
Okra
And I grated
Cucumber
Zucchini
Christophene
Carrot

Sprouted lentils stir fry


Now I have read lentils must be sprouted to digest them properly, which is not the regular Caribbean way to make them. So I advise looking online to find a great method. I will post one soon.

I tried just sprouting them and adding them to salads and they have an earthy flavour which is nice, but I found they made me gassy and so I decided to stir fry them, and a friend told me it was better to still do that for a few minutes and they were just softened and tasted better.

Prepare some fresh seasoning 
onion, pimento, garlic, grated ginger, turmeric
 cumin powder 
some cooking coconut oil
1/4 cup oil
Stir Fry for no more than seven minutes and keep it moist with a little water when needed and cover it with just stirring occasionally.



Quinoa

1 cup quinoa
Chopped seasonings again like with the lentils
Coconut oil
2 cup water
Dash turmeric
Dash cumin
Oregano leaves 

It is just like making rice.

Stir fry seasonings 
Add the water and spices and quinoa and cook over low heat til boiled out



Ila's Papaya Cream Dressing



Always make a nice dressing ever pay few days to keep the family interested and to keep yourself in  love with being in your healing space. the kitchen is where you prepare tonics and remedies to cure your life and change it for the better because of foods that make your kind clear and blood clean, shining a cleansing light within the temple.

A handful or cup of papaya cubes
1 tbsp coconut oil
1.5 tbsp apple cider vinegar or juice of a lemon
A few pieces of onion
A few pieces of pimento
1 small clove garlic
Small/ medium Thumb of Ginger
2 leaves chive

Blend smooth to a creamy delightful texture. Store in the fridge in covered container. Great as a dip as well. 


Add everything together on the plate and full-joy 

Oh my mom fried plantain, I will definitely explore baking them instead. Sweet potato could be a nice substitute.

I hope these two meals give a good visual as to the type of food you can prepare fresh everyday make one big salad leaving ingredients separated so it will last through out the day. The bigger the family the more you will adjust your recipe. 

 For dinner I will be having a wrap with a little of everything in it.

Create, Love and Heal Queens and Kings, detox and purify, strengthen and rise!

Ila's Rainbow Raw Wraps and Seasoned Dressing

Blessed Love,

As I have shown how good beetroot juice is for the womb and overall health, I will also share my favourite food recipe with beetroot.
It is important to eat live foods every day for their electromagnetic energies which they receive from the Sun as InI do as well. The more fresh and colourful foods InI eat, the higher the vibrations within, the more balanced our electric/positive and magnetic/negative life currents will be. All illnesses and womb issues will be healed just by eating two meals like this a day consistently. Overall the more colourful the good, the happier and brighter and lighter InI will feel.

Ila's Rainbow Wraps

Make a rainbow salad with all the colours of the rainbow.
 I grate all veggies that are hard and crunchy like carrot and beetroot


Tomato
Cucumber
Carrot
Beetroot 
Purple or red cabbage
Patchoy
Kale
Okra
Christophene
Pimento pepper
Sweet pepper
Avocado if you have

Here is an example of one of my salads, make it with what you have, anything raw is vital!



I prepare hummus to go with it

1 cup chick peas per soak them overnight in baking soda to reduce cooking time. Boil til they are tender.
Juice of 1 lemon
A few dashes of cumin, turmeric, sea salt to taste
1.5 tbs coconut oil
Dash of sesame oil
I clove garlic if blending

Blend it altogether or mash it for a chunky texture like me



Make a salad dressing

You can use my ginger dressing or beetroot dressing if you didn't add it to the salad. This is an overall seasoned dressing that can be used as a base for other flavours.

1.5 tbs coconut oil
3 tbs apple cider vinegar
Sea salt
Cumin
Turmeric
Thumb of ginger
Piece of onion
1 clove garlic
Pimento
Blend it altogether 

For the beetroot dressing just add less ginger and garlic and then put some beetroot to this mixture and blend.



Use wraps from the store or make your own! I haven't perfected this yet

Ital is Vital for The Being of the I

Hail Sistren,

I am finally putting my ipad blogger app to good use, and will be making the time late at night or early morning to post more. I have never stopped wanting to post, just using the computer was inconvenient, so now it is convenient I will try my best to be more consistent and with Their Idance and Blessing, put JAH works out there for the nation!

Because I really have no more to post on the actual rules and regulations of RasTafari for Dawtas, and because it is more critical to InI Nation to cater to the internal livity as much as the external appearance and ways, I feel motivated to keep sharing my own journey and inspirations (information) to obtain a better quality of life, a life that that reflects my passions, goals and needs, one that attracts them in fortune, one that is healthy and free from illness, worries and bad vibes. I see true ital Livity as a holistic cause and effect. I believe that if InI all could focus on our health and how we treat ourselves Irit mind and body, and truly see ourselves as small active units of the Iniverse, that RasTafari on a whole could vibrate at a higher, more unified level of Kristos Consciousness. 

have always seen Sistren online post their partially or totally raw livity for years but to trod it Iself now in more fullness is a great feeling. I thank you all for being there keeping the strength that others would one day know themselves. Being vegan or Ital as RasTa, doesn't always mean eating enough fresh foods so as I break away from old eating habits I am replacing them with new ones, with more information. I have been more aware of how electric or live foods feed the melanin and the actual light centres and life current of the body.
So in my posts, and through my Instagram page @ItalAfrika, i am for now focusing on healing the body temple through Ital and over standing the body as part of nature's cycles. Overstanding the rhythms that all huemans are bound to helps InI to overstand our behavior and character better. 
As I have been  eliminating  processed foods and sugar I have been eating more raw or Sunfired foods, and i have been creating a lot of fresh meals and seeing how they directly relate to how and what I real-eyes, think and feel and manage overall daily. I feel a higher vibration within my heavens, a permanent shift in positive power. 
 So really and truly, knowing how connected huemans are to the plant world through light/colour and elements, is the first real healing, the true submission to Ital Livity. And enhancing or healing the temple by Ital Livity is the first true way to attain Ivinity consciousness, to see oneself in union with JAH, for the temple houses the Irit, and must therefore be a sound natural vessel to attract and direct the forces of Nature. This brings to mind theGnostic  Gospels of Peace, which can be found online.

For  a Dawta to feel good about herself, for her to manage all the million tasks she must fulfill in a day, for her to be inspired, inspiring and creative, she must be balanced within her temple. Her mind and heart and lungs and bowels and womb must be right and in working order. Her daily flow must be smooth and powerfully graceful. To really be a Goddess she must act, think, look, talk and eat like a Goddess. Every Dawta deserves to have control of her life and vibes, and this control I have seen for my own self, starts within, if the internal is functioning, she immediately has more power and will to rise and conquer in her queendom, and navigate all that comes her way with WiseMind and confidence. She will not be brought low by wickedness, but evolve in her own shining path.

So whether seeking mental clarity and inspiration, or healing the womb for the purpose of easier moon cycles, or treating cysts or infertility if a Dawta has those issues, true Ital Living will give the entire mind and body temple a rejuvenation, clarity, light and love. In order to Prevent or heal any female issues or illnesses (and even a headache is disease)  or emotional and psychological issues, a lot of work must be done on self, on mind, on what a Dawta thinks says and does on a daily basis: moods and works, attitudes and desires. She must command in her lifestyle and presence, Positive vibes only, and it starts with her personal cultivation of such. 

And I do hope that the kings who read this will see that you yourself are responsible too, for taking care of yourself and for seeing to it that your wife and daughter, the wombs in your home, are being loved. Are the wombman in your life happy? What is your role in their current physical, mental and emotional state? Are you providing the right idea of health and livity in your home by your own principles and actions? Dawtas too, how are we influencing our kings and yutes based on how we feel inside on a daily basis? Are we nurturing and being nurtured? Or are we abusing ourselves and others by not taking the right care or feeling like we are neglected?  if I may so bold as to make an observation, our overall use of marijuana as man and wombman, smoothes over issues with a false sense of progress, but does not heal or correct them. A bun takes troubles away but doesn't fix them, unless what you resolve in your mind you can actually manifest later... In fact overuse of marijuana can itself feed unhealthy habits like alcohol, sugar and flour cravings, and defer Ital principles in the moment. so InI must overall know that we must be truly responsible and not overlook every area in the temple that needs improvement. InI must focus on being healed and being in control and not controlled by any type of abuses.

These Iditations send us all in the right direction, for if the answers are bad, InI can be inspired to achieve better, to have a healthy happy unified home, to taste Salvation or Ivinity, to have a healed and pure state of consciousness, the state of Kristos, of wellness and illumination. Ital Livity is the true healing of the nation! It is our way of achieving the principles InI Sight in Jah RasTafari Haile Sellassie I Menen Asfaw I! 

Love and Power to the I
heal ThySelf and believe that it is your destiny, the way to Light Love and Life Itinual

Beetroot and Daily Womb Wellness Livity

Greetings Rastafari Family,

Blessings for the Spring timing, the renewal of the Earth and cosmos, in Aries, also the royal month of Empress Menen and InI visit by the Emperor in 1966. 

I wish to reason again about the I-Juice and daily eating and drinking habits that are beneficial to the having a better moon cycle or menstruation. 

The womb wellness cleansing juice or the I-JUICE as my kingman and I call it since he likes it too and finds it rejuvenating after a sweat,  is a natural tonic that I believe every Dawta should drink daily. It is not just for the womb as it gives overall strength, immunity and feeds the blood so it should keep the household in better health. I really want to encourage all Dawtas to try it for your overall structure as a Wombman.

Queen Afua says our wombs hold our emotions and memories, so it is important I think, to tend to the physical structure of this very vital organ. It is the womb that is the portal between the solar Iniverse and Earth's physical plane therefore InI Wombman must be guarded of our gift, of our nature, of what JAH has entrusted to us as huemans. Womb care is self love, it is trusting and honoring self, it is acknowledging that part of the uprising to know the I Self Goddess, is in reclaiming and healing the sacred Womb Temple, the ankh in real life. There is n Iritual gain in a sick body, this is the law of the ancients, hence why they took so much interest in fasting, wearing robes, iditating on the cosmos and nature and so on. The Womb is the portal through which souls manifest on the earthly plane - and if the womb is not in good condition the yutes are not being given the best chance of transitioning in a peaceful process. Just really think about it! Likewise a Kingman must take care of what he eats and drinks, and also cleanse his blood so his sperm will be truly Ital and nontoxic to the womb which can be caused by alcohol tobacco flesh and other acidic foods and drinks. 

Apart from being a conditioner that will improve the temple's life, this juice is perfect as a remedy for those of us who have very painful moon cycles, who suffer with vomitting, nausea, cramping, heavy bleeding, fainting, bloating and fatigue. This juice in my own experience is proven to improve PMS and the actual moon time experience, reducing cramping pain and heavy flow in particular. I have been able to function without illness or pills because of it.

And what I love about this juice is that it is somewhat forgiving, it cleanses the organs and blood so well, that anything that is not good for the womb can be removed. What I mean is, if you have been eating the wrong foods, drinking it the week before and the week of your flow or just a few days before and during, will help fight the bad symptoms which are a result of dairy, soy, flour and sugar mainly. This has been my personal experience, whenever I eat too much wheat bread and pasta or cookies, my first two days are pretty bad. But drinking lots of I-Juice takes it away even while it is happening. and of course the best way to avoid it is eliminate all these foods - but we are all hueman and when a Dawta is tired or upset InI just want something sweet!  So I hope that you Sistren will try it, and really learn what the trigger foods are for your body, and let I know of any results. Give thanks to sis Amanda and those who have already tried and given a positive result.

I wish to review the recipe again as well

You can grate blend or use a juicer but this recipe wasn't created for a juicer, unless you plan to drink your juice fresh every time which is no problem either.

I-JUICE

1 large beet or 2 medium or 3 small
1 large thumb of ginger or 2 medium
1 large lemon/lime or 2 small limes, lemons or even oranges 
1 litre boiled or a pure water

Grate the ginger
Grate the beetroot, or in a blender using grate feature, blend chopped beetroot with half the water.
The water is used when warm not hot.
In a container, steep all the ginger and beetroot and water for a couple hours
Purse a strainer and transfer to your storage jug with cover.
Add lemon juice after straining and chill.

 

 



This lasts me two days. I now make this juice as an everyday natural  juice because I want to give myself optimum healing opportunities. Having bad periods causes self -hate, dreading when that time comes, feeling bad about not being able to solve the problem and truly heal...there are a lot of pent up emotions to be resolved in Womb Wellness.

Which leads me to say again, that InI must eat well everyday to really obtain the benefits of healing. This is the hardest part of it, being conscious of what InI eat daily, especially when many changes need to be made. What this means really, is No dairy, sugary drink or snack, wheat like bleached flour or pasta, no soy (or only once a week) and of course no alcohol or meat.  Choose brown foods instead of white - like pasta, rice and flour. There are many UNHEALTHY VEGAN or ITAL meals, so research is necessary.EVen though I cannot be raw-vegan now or completely Ital, I know that it is the only way to have a perfect internal function - raw foods only is the best way to heal the womb that it may be fertile and the period only a passing thing of no disturbance.

 Being the ones who provide the meals most times, InI Dawtas have to take health seriously, I am not saying spend extra money on expensive foods, I am saying reroute the family budget, substitute mucus foods with whole grains, fruit and vegetables, organic where possible. The price of groceries is reduced if you shop by the farmers market or if you grow something you eat a lot, like greens, at home. InI have to do what we can with the budget we have. 

So here is my personal daily livity for womb wellness

Breakfast By 9 in the morning - womb yoga (Sacred Woman steps by Queen Afua), fruit smoothie as a rule but sometimes  ginger tea,  water, water and lemon also

Lunch 11-12:30 - a raw salad alone but sometimes  with channa or hummus  and baked sweet potato most days, or a vegan meal with salad (combos: peas, grain, veggie and salad combo usually, or ground provision with peas and vegetables, or soup, or salad wraps or a channa pattie sandwhich or wrap)

Snack  anytime - oranges, melon and bananas, nuts (but I can't have nuts for my sinus), popcorn, homemade muffins,  hummus and veg


Dinner 5-6 -  a repeat of lunch

I make everything fresh daily (but sometimes I have left overs for lunch) and I eat home mostly, so if you must eat out make sure it is someplace that takes care in what they prepare. Ginger, cinnamon, date paste and fruits reduce cravings for sweets.

I have started a page on Instagram called @RASTAWIFELINE livicated to reasoning, but mainly ITAL Care and Education and  Womb Wellness -  womb health, melanin consciousness and the overall improvement of Afrikan health by choosing better options, eating more raw and gardening at home. I hope to keep providing information from books as I go along.  I also load recipes to SnapGuide which is similar to Pinterest. I also have a Pinterest Ital page. My updating is slow because of time constraints so please keep checking these links to see what's new. I really hope that Dawtas will come forward and share their experiences and also share tips and methods you use at home for your own optimal wellness, what has worked for you?

Look for and use my hashtags #RastaWifeLine #HealingAfrika #ItalFarmer #Rastacooking #ItalAfrika #ItalisVital #Rastafari  to promote the correct Livity for the nation. Let InI become each other's inspiration and bring TRUE healing to the nation.
I look forward to sharing and working with more Dawtas in Rastafari in this Light.
Selah!
Ila
