Clare’s Sweet Butternut Seeds

  I haverwo airbnb guests, tonight, woohoo! For three days in the cacoons. (See my airbnb sites for the Cottage del Palomas – Dove Cottage) or the Cacoons – Hanging Tents for Travelers! W. came over to help me put up another Cacoon in the Yoga Perch for them, and wouldn’t even take any money off what he owes. He wanted to do it as a favor, between friends. Gosh. And not the first time! Besides, his kids will use the cacoons Tues. when his family watches Tiko for the night while I go to the U.S. Embassy in Guayaquil to renew my passport. He said they had great fun playing in the cacoons last time when I went to Peru!

      And speaking of awesome friends, I keep being surprised, out of the corner of my eye, to catch, what I think is a person, standing in the corner of my new house. Especially at night! But it’s  actually a yellow poncho, hanging straight up in the front window. And I’m pretty sure, since the poncho moves every few days, that the workers are leaving it there to look like a person is there. I am so taken care of – humbled at my friends and how they take care of me.

Recipe of the Day – Sweet Seeds


1 c. sprouted seeds: butternut squash, pumpkin, sunflower, or a mix of all three
1 T. raw honey or agave
1 T. coconut oil
1/2 T. salt


To sprout the seeds, soak one day,  then drain off the water. The seeds will produce little sprouts during the course of one day! Let them dry, then mix all in a bag and pour onto a dehydrator tray. Dehydrate for 104 degrees for 24 hours. A delicious recipe and an awesome snack to have around the house for anyone!

Word of the Day – seco – dried

Tip of the Day – When I was packing my bags to come to Ecuador, I was wondering what kind of seeds I could eat here. And I’m so lucky! Pumpkin seeds, sunflower seeds, sesame, chia and others abound! And often you can thrown the seed of the fruit you’re eating, into the ground and the plant just grows! Whoa!
