Repost from @kerala_varma - Shri Poornathrayeesa Temple is the only temple in South India where you can see an odd pose of Vishnu, sitting under the shade of five royal hoods of the divine serpant, Ananthan, whose folded body itself acts as the throne for the God. Devotees worship the almighty here as “Santhaana Gopaala Moorthy”(Savior of infants). Anecdotes say that this beautiful idol of Sree Poornathrayeesa was presented to Arjuna by Lord Vishnu, while the former sought the help of the Supreme being to give rebirth to the ten children of a brahmin (believed to be a member of Puliyannur Illom). Arjuna along with the ten children and the holy idol returned in his chariot and handed over the children to the brahmin. Later a temple was built here in memory of this event and the sanctum-sanctorum (Sree Kovil) of this temple (presently known as Muthukulangara) is in the form of a chariot. Arjuna sent lord Vighnesha to search for a holy place for the installation of the idol of lord Vishnu. First they kept the idol in a palace, half a kilometer west to the main temple and now it is popularly known as ‘Poonithura Kottaram’.
Attracted by the holiness of the ancient Vedic Village, POORNAVEDAPURAM, (now Tripunithura), lord Vighnesha himself occupied the place. Angry Arjuna kicked him aside to the southern side of the sanctum and installed the idol in that holy place surrounded by mustard fields. He then plucked some mustard seeds and crushed them to get oil for lighting lamp in front of the idol. Devotees consider the evershining “Valia Vilakku” situated in front of the idol, as the oil lamp lighted by Arjuna. Burnt oil of this traditional lamp possesses great medicinal value. The deity, ever since has been living in the minds and hearts of devotees as Santhanagopala Moorthy, blessing the needy, infertile couples with children.

Refreshing orange and ginger smoothie topped with orange, cashew and coconut grawnola
For the smoothie I just blended up one orange, a thumb-sized piece of ginger, a tbs baobab powder and a couple of frozen bananas 🍌
Good Morning! 🌞 Sunny breakfast with all the toppings. Porridge with roasted vanilla rhubarb, raspberries, toasted almonds, coconut, chia and sunflower seeds. All drizzled with the number one in the PB business @lifeforce_ie Summer come at me 😎
Some things can't be unseen, they must be made, shared and eaten.
Especially when made from #SaltedCaramel#BornCultured#CoconutYoghurt
Thanks @yesvegan_lis for your magical creation. ... Here's the outcome of my healthy, glutenfree salted caramel cheesecake 🤤😍
The best thing about this piece of heaven is that I did not use refined sugar, the crust as well as the caramel topping is made of dates 👌🏼
It's beyond delicious 😍
70g desiccated coconut
3 tbsp almond milk (or any other plant milk)
Pinch of salt
Blend almonds and buckwheat frost until you have fine flour, add remaining ingredients and blend until it's a bit sticky.
Spread in a baking pan (8 inch/20cm diameter) but keep 3 tbsp of the crust for the topping.
500g coconut yoghurt vanilla (@borncultured)
500g coconut yoghurt salted caramel (@borncultured)
60g corn starch (30g each)
Blend corn starch and yoghurt until smooth. Start layering: take two ladles and pour the first ladle of vanilla yoghurt in the middle of the crust. Now a ladle of salted caramel right in the middle. Repeat these two steps until everything is used up. Put into the preheated oven (165*C) for about an hour. Let it cool down completely.
Meanwhile prepare date-caramel:
200g dates (soaked for at least 4h)
4 tbsp coconut oil
30ml almond milk (or any other plant milk)
Blend ingredients until smooth.
Once the cake is cool spread caramel on top and crumble the rest of the crust on top and some roughly chopped almonds.

Hoy ando en el aeropuerto porque viajo a Guayaquil. Normalmente desayuno algo de El Español o Juan Valdez pero todo tiene salchicha, jamón o tocino. Entonces hoy opté por algo distinto para el #RetoVegetariano .
Acá estoy probando estos #coco bites con caramelo de @cocobitesbywary. Me encanta la popularidad del coco por estos días. Cuando pienso en esta fruta que se alimenta del agua salada del mar y quizá retiene su líquido que se transforma en agua de coco súper refrescante. O su carne blanca de la que se extrae la leche con la que hacen el encoca'o, uno de mis platos favoritos del mundo. Me encanta que haya estas iniciativas que exploran estos ingredientes ❤
Waking up in Goa after a sound sleep post a long tiring ride in the brutal summer heat the day before, decided to give the usual tourist spots in Goa a miss...Instead, thought of paying the unexplored Malvan coasts of Maharashtra a much-needed visit...
Malvan was just 100 kilometres from Goa...the maps cavalierly revealed...The first 50 kilometres on the NH 17 went by like a breeze, making me absolutely proud of my early morning decision...However, the moment I veered off the NH 17 at Kudal...delight turned to despair...the road narrowed into a bumpy pothole-ridden, single-laner with barely enough space for two vehicles to cross each other side by side...
I rode along, trying to carefully dodge the huge potholes on the road and the mighty dumper trucks that would almost knock me down everytime I tried to pass a slow moving vehicle in front..."I should've stayed in Goa", I kept kicking myself...even considering turning back to Goa at several points along the way...All until I reached this old bridge over the Karli river...
-----------------------------------------------Watching the sight of the beautiful river flowing through the lush green coconut trees, adorning the banks on both sides, as it made its way to the Arabian sea, made me forget all my worries and cheered me up...And in that moment, all the kilometres I rode aimlessly, all the hardships...it all started to make sense...it was never Goa...It was Malvan that had been calling me from all this far!!!...Malvan had been awaiting me...All this time...There was no turning back now...!!!😊😊😊
Have a great start to the week!!! 😊
