At the beginning of October I started posting daily correspondences here and (as of today) directly on my Facebook page. Some of the information changes daily depending on day of the month, time of year, etc., but the things that stay the same week after week are the actually daily correspondences so I thought I’d just post this here so you can refer back to it again and again. 😀

Food– Sunday‘s, among other things, is a good day to recharge physically and spiritually. Healing our bodies and our spirits is a good idea after a long week of working and dealing with the stresses of the world. My greatest advice for this day is that you try to maintain a strictly vegetarian diet on this day. Try to eat healthful foods that have not been processed in any way and stay away from meat all together. I usually just eat snacky kinds of foods in this day. Sliced cucumbers, pineapple rings, watermelon, celery and carrot sticks are all a part of my Sunday diet. As Sunday is ruled by the sun, you might also like to devour a nice round orange.

Food– Monday’s are ruled by the moon and as such, are my days for the Goddess. I like to eat things I can prepare in a large pot or sauce pan, all the while imagining that I am Cerridwen preparing a magical brew in my Cauldron of Inspiration.

A warm bow, of oatmeal to start the day out right moving through lunch with a big salad and ending up at supper time with a lovely eggplant lasagna with a side of 7 grain bread and pecan pie for dessert.

Spaghetti and garlic bread, pretzels, rice and corn with blueberry pie for dessert is a meal to look forward to.
