Fun Healthy Pumpkin meals! In the Pumpkin! 

INGREDIENTS 
(any veggies you like, here are some ideas, Mac and cheese works too!) 

INSTRUCTIONS
  1. Preheat oven to 375 degrees.
  2. Line a baking sheet with foil.
  3. Thoroughly wash and dry the outside of the pumpkin.
  4. Cut the top off the pumpkin and clean out the pulp and seeds. Place the pumpkin on the baking sheet. Save the top. ( I suggest saving and roasting the seeds ! you can cook them on there own cookie sheet along withe the pumpkin meal! 
  5. In a large skillet, sauté onion and mushrooms in oil or butter. Add ground beef and cook until no longer pink. Drain the grease from the beef. Add salt, pepper, and water chestnuts.
  6. In a large bowl, mix soup, coconut sugar, Add ground beef mixture and cooked rice.
  7. Empty bowl into the cleaned out pumpkin and replace pumpkin top.
  8. Bake for 1 hour on the lower rack of the oven, or on the rack where the pumpkin can be most centered in the oven.
  9. After 1 hour and 15 minutes, remove the top and check the sides of the pumpkin for doneness. The outside of the pumpkin will turn a dark orange, and the inside of the pumpkin should be tender and easily scoop off the sides with a spoon. If the inside of the pumpkin is still not fully cooked, bake for an additional 10-15 minutes. The cooking time will vary depending on the size of the pumpkin. Sometimes I've cooked the pumpkin as long as an hour and a half before it is ready. Using hot pads, place the pumpkin onto a serving plate, remove the lid, and stir. Be sure to scoop off chunks of cooked pumpkin into the casserole as it is served. That's the best part!

Shamanic grounding...
One of the most common practices in Shamanism to disengage with the trance or medium state is eating grounding food. 
We often in shamanic community gatherings and teachings prepare feasts for after our work together before departing. It is a way to celebrate with the spirits and with our embodied community. 
Its like a bridge home to this middle world

Prepare a yummy snack or meal to ground you after your journey (make a plate of whatever you make to put on your altar for your ancestors this is called a spirit plate) 
Here is some grounding food ideas
- A warm soup carrot ginger or butternut squash soup
- Roasted beats and potatoes with rosemary and olive oil and sea salt.

- Squash with olive oil, cinnamon and sea salt and lil hard cheese cheese grated on top 

- Lil chocolate ( if it does not keep you up at night ) 

- Humus and crackers

- Dolmas
