February 9-15 is Random Acts of Kindness Week
“Be kind, for everyone you meet is fighting a hard battle.” – Philo
February, the month of love, is a favorite of Charlotte Lyons and mine. The word love means many things. In addition to feelings of infatuation, it encompasses kindness, empathy, compassion and forgiveness to ourselves and others. According to our book, “The Secret Powers of Colorful Foods,” feelings of the heart radiate green energy. You can support that energy with green foods and by acknowledging the value of others. “The Secret Powers of Colorful Foods” supplies you with a list of green foods, green food recipes and green energy balancing tips including hand clapping.
The phrase, “Practice random kindness and senseless acts of beauty,” coined by writer Anne Herbert, is an example of having heart for others and radiating green energy. A smile. A compliment. Holding the door open for someone. These are simple examples of honoring the value of others.
Charlotte and I chose this beautiful green cauliflower as an example of supporting love towards ourselves and others. Green love energy radiates out from the tips of each floret just as unconditional love radiates out from the heart chakra in each of us.
Here’s a simple recipe to oven roast cauliflower (green or white):
Cut the large cauliflower into smaller pieces. Preheat the oven to 400º. On a baking sheet drizzle cauliflower florets with olive oil. Season with salt and pepper. Roast for about 30 minutes. Let cool.

Each one of us can make a difference. Imagine what the world would be like if each one of us did.
Feed your feelings well!
