3 Meals for Your Throat Chakra
Today, we are going to focus on balancing our Throat chakra through the healing power of nutrition.
Blue is an essential color to incorporate when balancing the Throat chakra. You will notice that this color is incorporated with many fruits such as blueberries and blackberries in today’s recipes.
The Throat chakra affects your speech. When your Throat chakra is balanced, you are a great speaker but also and a good listener. You are aware of your words and really think before you speak. Keep in mind that it is also important to drink liquids that keep you hydrated and soothe your throat, like water, milk, honey, or coconut water.
Let’s dive into these three easy recipes for breakfast, lunch, and dinner!
