London 420 Cannabis Protest – Speaker’s Corner Hyde Park 2015

front

The Cannabis collective were certainly classing up the joint in the beautiful Hyde Park this weekend.

the crowd
A party took place on Saturday evening in London to embrace the gathering that was to follow. The next day, Sunday from 12pm, “we shall not be moved” was sure to be in the thoughts of many of the people at the London 420 picnic in the beautiful Hyde Park. With further demonstrations to take place, Monday 20th April was indeed set to cause some movement in today’s protest at Parliament before election day this year.

Many of the crowd did sit and stand strong on Sunday, loyal and true as police tried to move supporters out of Hyde Park. During the peaceful picnic yesterday that took place at Speaker’s Corner in London, the Sun’s rays beamed down on thousands of happy people, men, women and children as they set up and gathered in unity around the trees to end the war on drugs…and more specifically, the current crisis concerning Cannabis use. People from all over the world met up to have their say and to raise awareness for the rest of the people who are even just the littlest bit curious.

There were several activist organisations including NORML UK + NORML UK Women’s Alliance, United Patients Alliance, Feed The Birds, and London Cannabis Club, even the London Green Party had flyers on the table, this is just to name a few, that came together to make a huge stand for Cannabis freedom and to help educate the nation on the many health benefits of using Cannabis. The drug is healing people all over the World and time is indeed long over due for the United Kingdom catching up.

Signs of true support

Seeds, stickers, bands, badges, flyers, t-shirts, keyrings and more were on offer to enhance the event and for everyone to gain a greater knowledge of exactly why such a fuss has to be made regarding the laws surrounding Cannabis use.
People showed appreciation for the wonderful plant by firstly igniting a flame within today’s people by initially setting up such a needed event in the UK and sharing the Word. Others helped by hanging up banners, bringing signs with them, dressing up leaf style, even putting on shows later in the day, everyone had a role to act upon that was appreciated by others. This truly was a day of Cannabis freedom. Thank You to All who came.

Cannabis Signs

Raising Cannabis awareness in Hyde Park

Sadly, there was a disgraceful amount of litter left by the crowd again this year, and as the police started to move people out it was apparent just how much. Straight to work went the eco-lovers to clear it all away within 15 minutes, that’s straight up earth love and respect and it shows that we really do care for the common good.

Standing strong and clearing up the mess

The police seemed to be rather interested in all the fuss and even brought along horses and a helicopter as well as the vans. They caused a little bit of a problem whilst man handling a few of the people but that sooned got sorted out appropriately. All in all the law enforcement team didn’t seem to be bothered much and happily watched on as nearly everyone around them lit up throughout the day. Another sign that Cannabis really ought not to be illegal. Can’t be that bad, right?

Various people traveled quite some way to light up in London yesterday.
Many people were over joyed by the fact they could simply ‘skin up’ in a park with no worries.  The organisers did a fabulous job with the event and it was breathtaking to see the vast amount of support received.

There were also dogs among the smoke, seeds and brownies for the birds and squirrels who had a fantastic day too! This just goes to show how harmful Cannabis isn’t, to all kinds of species.

When the time reached 4.20pm there was an uproar that created a beautiful connection between all and the sky above filled with fumes as people united for real change.

4.20pm

Such a peaceful and passion filled day.

The people were gathered through the use of Cannabis well past 7.30pm, even after the event organisers had left. They were just peacefully ‘being’ in the park, chilling and enjoying the sunshine, spending some quality time with friends.

Evening supporters

All in all it was a successful day in showing that a vast number of people are standing for change on this important matter.

Awareness can only be heightened through the passion of those that truly believe. On Sunday all those that attended spoke together as One.

Berry Boulder Bombs – Homemade Healthy Raw Snacks

Created with Nokia Smart Cam
They’re big, they’re bad and they are back! Woah I just couldn’t help myself from resisting making another batch of health bombs and this time I have almost doubled them in size as I kept opening the fridge for another one and well bigger is just more economical here!
Who knew snacks were readily available just like that and totally raw…I’m more than happy, just need to curb the moderation and respect, happiness helps (thanks to Saffron for this morning’s boost)!
So previously I made Coconut rolled Goji bombs and ate the whole lot in like 36 hours as my kids didn’t like them and when I’m down or stressed I eat!…a lot! They were delicious and so easy to make, besides being fun, next time the kids can help and it can become a fun activity, rolling the balls, chopping the berries etc. they don’t seem to like Coconut so we’ll try a different mix perhaps this one although I feel it maybe too dark for them as the Cacao penetrates through the other flavours.
This time I was pondering on what to do with the leftover Almond pulp from the milk I had just made and you know me by now I just can’t stand waste so I needed something to do with this mountain of Almondness, I remembered I have a very dear friend who writes about and cooks (or doesn’t cook) the most amazingly inspirational dishes so I thought I’d see what ideas she had as I am new to the real food lifestyle and I’m so glad I did. She’s awesome at making the most simple of dishes into the most magical, every time, especially raw ones. And through her inspiration I decided not to make an Almond & Cacao butter but to try a different type of snack ball. Yay! With a little tweaking and experimenting it worked wonderfully, tasting sweet and holding together just right. I recommend 1/3 cup Almond milk here as I actually used about ½ and it’s proven a little too much. Live and learn ey!

Here’s my recipe.

Requirements:

1 Mixing Bowl
2 CUPS Almond Pulp
1/3 CUP Almond Milk
1/3 CUP Millet Flour
1/3 CUP Coconut Butter
1 tblsp Cacao Powder
1 tblsp Hemp Flour
1 tblsp Milled Chia Seed & Blueberry Powder
½ tblsp Passion Fruit Dry Extract
13 dried Incan Berries

Method:

Mix all the ingredients together.
Roll into balls. Roll into extra Chia seed.
Put them on a plate and place in the fridge overnight to set.

It really is that simple.

but watch out…a moment on the lips really is a lifetime on the hips with these bad boys!

Organic Raw Chocolate Natural Homeschooling Cooking Lesson

IMG3158A

Monday morning’s class this week began in the most magical of ways. The Sun was booming in through the kitchen, the whole family was happy and the love was strong.
After a most healthy breakfast my children and I set about our homeschool for the day. The topic for the morning was cooking and as my children are young toddlers this was going to be our first real encounter with using the oven and quite a daunting one at that!
Nevertheless we began. Making raw Cacao Chocolate was to be the first set of culinary skills my children would acquire. Great start right!
As i had never done this before either it was a new, paleo technique i was to master also! How, simple, quick and easy it was, not forgetting to mention how deliciously potent the aromas are.
The kids got stuck right in and loved stirring the butter until it melted, this was a little lesson in patience and how to stir at the same time. As soon as it started to melt my eldest knew ‘chocolate, chocolate, chocolate’ was coming testing the virtue of patience further! Further through the process they both loved being in control of the spoon, minding not to touch the hot bowl and pan.
Their favourite part of making the mix was tasting it from the spoon and bowl and covering their hands and faces in it. It was a extreme chocolately mess and we all loved it! It was definitely a hit in this kitchen and one to be practiced  much more often as the list of ingredients that can be added is almost infinite. Such fun! We loved health-packed superfoods!

Nowadays when we think of Cacao, where the reality of our western culture has been so far obscured, its all too easy to fall under the influence of chocolate being full of sugar and not very good for our health but this is far from the raw truth and actually only has any connection to the readily available, heat treated, sugar laced / artificially enhanced types!
Natural Organic Raw Cacao Chocolate is nutritionally beneficial to our health and deeply satisfying  for our system holistically in so many ways, all you need to do is ingest a small amount to truly feel the full effects of its divine power.

Benefits of Raw Cacao Chocolate:
+ High Magnesium (happiness & stamina booster)
+ High Sulphur (known for healthy nail and hair growth whilst being cleansing to the liver and pancreas)
+ High in antioxidants (disease prevention)
+ Diminishes appetite (perfect for snacking / sees you through hunger gaps)
+ Tantalizes taste buds (joy for the mouth!)
+ Combines with every other food you can think of

As well as being totally amazing for your mind and body Cacao Chocolate is an awesome party piece and a brilliant talking point. Since learning just how easy it is to make I vow now to spread the word to all I know, gifting my dearest friends and family with starter kits to create their own so the love can truly be felt and cast far and wide.
We bought a beautifully made, simple, basic, standard, organic Chocolate making kit and added a few of our own ingredients from the cupboard to give added yum.IMG3100A

Requirements:

Heatproof Bowl
Saucepan
Spoon / Spatula
Oven top
Moulds
Cocoa Powder 100g
CocoaButter 100g
3g Vanilla Powder
100ml Agave Syrup

Optional / additional:

1tsp Acai Berry Powder
1tsp Blueberry Powder
2tsp Hemp Flour

IMG3104AIMG3111AIMG3123AIMG3116A

Method:

  • First put about 1/3 saucepan of water on to heat, no need fr it to boil. Place in your glass / heatproof inside the pan to flaoat and there you have created your own bain marie if you don’t already have one.
  • Next add all the Cacao Butter and gently stir until just melted.
  • Then add all the vanilla powder and keep stirring until totally blended. You may add the additional ingredients if desired, mixing until blended.
  • After this add all of the Cacao Powder and mix until smooth.
  • Last ingredient to be added is the Agave Syrup, using the full bottle mic for around 101 stirs hen you shall see it totally blended.
  • Pour out the molten chocolate into your desired molds and allow to set in the fridge for around 15-30 minutes depending on fridge temp and depth of molds. I recommend using a high quality rubber mold as it will be easier to pop out and wont leave as much of the chocolate behind.
  • Enjoy! (Compulsory)

Once you try this method and understand how simple and beautiful it is crafting your on chocolate snacks you will never look at chocolate the same again!

IMG3154A IMG3152A IMG3159A
By creating your own blocks, bars or slabs you can be truly as diverse as you feel in that moment using whichever additional ingredients that you like. Using superfood berries really makes these chocolate bars very, very healthy for you! Really. Body and mind, a whole feeling of well-being is achieved from just a small amount. Now i know how, there is no stopping me making homemade chocolates for our family every time they are craved!

I hope yours turns out as amazing as ours 🙂
