the passion whisperer

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!

 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.

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.

About Mahi S

I was born on the island of Cyprus in 1971. For years, I lived the life of a nomad: I grew up in the Arab Gulf, finished high school in Cyprus, then went to the U.S. for five remarkable, life-changing years of study and work in public relations. With every change of home, I was confronted with the challenge of separation and the issue of identity, but ultimately the rewarding experience of interacting with people of different cultures has informed my life ever since. It inspired me to create an ideal setting wherever I found myself, to live meaningfully and use passion as the main ingredient in my life. I run to keep myself motivated and to fire the kind of creative thinking that keeps me balanced and content. But it’s also an ongoing challenge: since 1999, I have completed 17 half-marathons, which I try to run in a different city every time. In fact, running and travel are the two pillars of my life philosophy: “Travel is fascinating, whether it’s about a series of mesmerizing destinations or a journey within myself”. “Running keeps me sane, motivated and focused!” Right now, I am focusing on promoting my new book, ‘A squirrel in your kitchen’ an e-cookbook with quick, easy and delicious recipes (and anecdotes) from dearest friends around the world. http://www.amazon.com/dp/B00AYXN500. I am also hoping to experience the fascinating challenge of a full marathon in 2016; in Athens or New York. We’ll see!
