Mongan Method HypnoBirthing maintains the high standard set by the Author of "HypnoBirthing the Mongan Method" (Marie Mongan). The HypnoBirthing Institute (and myself) believe very strongly that birth preparation and mind/body preparation takes time spread across numerous weeks. The courses provided ensure that preparation extends across a minimum of five weeks for high quality birth preparation.

THIS WEEKS RECIPE
Spring Carrot and Radish Salad
Vegetarian, Vegan, and Gluten-Free
1/2 cup extra virgin olive oil
1/4 cup lime juice or lemon juice
1 teaspoon finely grated fresh ginger
Sea salt to taste
6 medium small sweet carrots
4-6 radishes, preferably of varying colours
a few tiny sprigs of dill
Bring a large pot of well salted water to a boil and set up an ice bath.
Meanwhile, whisk together the olive oil, citrus juice, and ginger. Add salt to taste, and reserve.
Peel the carrots, cut into quarters lengthwise if larger than medium
Thinly slice the radishes, using a mandoline if available.
When the water is boiling, cook the carrots until tender, checking them frequently with the point of a knife. When they are just tender, remove them immediately to the ice water.
When you are ready to serve, drain the carrots and pat them dry. Give the dressing a quick whisk and toss the carrots with some of it. Transfer to a serving platter, and arrange the radish slices amongst and over them. Drizzle more dressing over the top. Garnish with the dill and finishing salt.
Have a great week
