Sometimes dreams unfold in the simplicity of life. I’m here puffing my own rice for homemade protein bars, grinding oats for honey oat flour bread that’ll be baking all afternoon, and chopping coconut to dash on top of both. All of this to make some plane food for a 12 hour journey to Uganda tomorrow. I’ve not only fallen in love with not being able to run to the grocery store to grab anything I want, but also with the way I’m seeing the simple details of my life reflect a great big dream I hold onto.
I have a “one day” dream of living on land, having an urban farm of sorts, and making most of my own stuff from scratch (flours, honey, tinctures, herbs, veggies). Here in Madagascar today I’m doing a little warm up for that by making all these treats without easy access to gluten free flours and bars. How can you start moving towards your big dreams by bringing what your dreamy day-to-day might look like into your here and now?
