A few days ago, I was listening to wellness activist Kris Carr interview Marie Forleo. In this truly inspiring interview, Forleo, who runs a thriving game-changing business, spoke about how she manages to stay energized, healthy and positive. What REALLY caught my attention was when Kris portrayed Marie as a ‘PASSION WHISPERER.’ I loved the term! Passion whisperers are people who use passion as the main ingredient in ALL that they do from fluffing a pillow to cooking a meal. Such is the essence of this blog: to live and love passionately! You can view the full video on this link: http://www.youtube.com/watch?feature=player_embedded&v=EbkWhGbB50k I must admit that I can identify at least two passion whisperers in my life and one is my very talented and truly inspirational friend, Thomas Peccini. Thomas lives and loves life passionately and never ceases to spread the loving factor to those around him whether it is through his incredible cooking or his countless themed activities which are truly an experience of the senses. Yesterday, he tweaked a carrot hummus recipe which I posted on my blog to create what I feel is now a TXP-signature recipe. In this Roasted Carrot and Tahini Paste flavored with orange, lemon, thyme, cumin and parsley, Thomas topped it with a sprig of fresh sage. This passion whisperer then created chips from thin Lebanese pita, tossed them with olive oil and sea salt and then toasted them in the oven. The initial recipe was posted on May 4, while Thomas’ full- of -passion version is right here. https://www.facebook.com/photo.php?fbid=10151711456694954&set=np.260030707.524663051&type=1&theater¬if_t=photo_tag Thomas and I agreed that we would replace the orange juice with more lemon the next time around while the next tweak will also include fresh chopped cilantro.
