Bliss - Raw Desserts and Seasonal Nourishment is a new genre.
It has recipes for raw desserts. Raw desserts are desserts that are plant-based and do not require cooking. They are gluten and dairy free.
The desserts are organised into 8 sections. The sections relate to the 8 seasons in The Wheel of Life. These seasons are the 4 seasons relating to the position of the sun - Winter, Spring, Summer and Autumn and the 4 transitional seasons in the harvest calendar - Imbolc, Beltane, Lammas and Samhain. Each season has a different energy about it and different metaphors. ie Winter is about stillness, reflection and going within while Autumn is about letting go, abundance and what you are harvesting. These metaphors also are within our own cycles that we live through in life - emotionally, mentally, physically and spiritually.
Each dessert also has a poem which relates to an aspect of the season the dessert is in.
After each dessert and the poem, there is a section for the reader to reflect on how they engage with that aspect of the season in their own life.
This book is to support readers to connect with the sweetness in their life through all the senses and the seasons.
