Welcoming Neha; food psychologist and founder of Guna, the start up which organises organic food workshops across India.  Neha shares one of her lovely peace recipes for a perfect snack.

Wholefood Harmony and Anna’s teachings on macrobiotics have brought immense peace in my life. Being an Indian, I mostly followed a vegetarian ayurvedic diet. However, during my time as a student and professional, and while in England, I found it difficult to manage a balanced lifestyle.  I felt confused whilst shopping for food and preparing meals.

With macrobiotics and the Pure Cook’s Training, I understand the wisdom of plant foods and am able to design healthy and balanced shopping lists, menus and meals. I now conduct workshops in New Delhi.  Anna is a radiant and positive human being who lives her teachings.  I feel very lucky to have met her.

Amaranth Crackers 

1 cup amaranth flour

1 tblsp arrowroot

1 tblsp flax

1 tsp herbs – I like chives

1 tsp sea salt

1/2 cup water

1/2 tblsp olive oil

Mix dry ingredients together.  In a separate bowl combine oil and water with a fork.  Slowly add the wet ingredients to the dry, turning the flour.  Mix until a firm ball.  Oil a flat baking tray and roll out the dough until 1/8th inch thick using extra flour to prevent sticking.  Cut to desired shape. Place in oven at 180C for around 8 minutes.  Turn over and put back in oven for another 5 minutes.
