Queen of Pentacles Stew

I hate vegetables. I'm 41 and it's still a fight for me to eat veg. But this past Saturday I participated in a wonderful Spirit party (which I shall post about soon) and after an event that powerful and having readings back to back today I needed to ground myself. So last night I used my crockpot for the first time and made a wonderful stew full of root vegetables and beef, things that we earth signs need. I am calling it "Queen of Pentacles Stew".

I found a wonderful blog that explains the correlation between certain foods and each zodiac sign.

Here are the ingredients I used and some of the nutritive value of each:

- Celery - The particular vitamin C in celery helps reduce cholesterol.

- Mushrooms - contain vitamin E which protest from free radicals, potassium which is good for heart health because it balances sodium, and is great at fighting viruses.

- Onions - Good for hair, skin, and nails, loosens phlegm, and reducing HPB

- Carrots - Great for prevention of cancers

- Yucca- Rich in iron and calcium and good anti-inflammatory

- Beef - Source of protein, zinc, B vitamins, and selenium


The weather today has been nasty, rainy and that bone-chilling cold. Perfect weather for something that fills you up and makes you feel warm and cozy. So the perfect thing for a Queen of Pentacles like myself to prepare. The QofP is all about nurturing and creating an environment where others feel secure and cared for. And a synchronicity would have it, I had the blessing of being able to share this stew in my home with two other particular Capricorns who mean the world to me! To the least, I'm insanely Lucky.

  1. Delicious and nutricious! :) Glad you're taking care of yourself, body and soul. My Dear One said just last night that he fancied a stew, so perhaps I shall give this one a go...

  2. I'm so bad about cooking it's a sin lol. I've been so spoiled for many years by growing up with a Mom who is a phenomenal cook, a grandma who lived with us my whole life who was amazing, an ex who was pretty darn good, and two roommates who were trained by professional chefs. And all of these people loved to do the cooking. My apartment here is quite small, so I can't do the typical American grocery shopping with such a small fridge. But I've got to gt better about it. Lt me know if you make your stew! xx πŸ’œ

  6. Love this! I did a lot of earth eating when I was focused on developing my root chakra. Lentils are my favourite earthy food!

    Just realized I'm starving! Warm wishes for your day Krysten!
