Happy Mermaid Monday! My husband came across a picture of “Mermaid Toast” and knew I would love it. He was right. Once I saw this magical Mermaid Toast I had to make my own.
Here’s the thing, I’ve recently switched my already complicated diet (gluten free vegetarian – no eggs) to a keto, high fat low carb version. If bread and toast weren’t a problem before, it sure is now! Fortunately, this kitchen witch loves to experiment, and I set out to make keto, egg-free bread from this recipe here.
I think it came out alright. But the best part is the cream cheese! Since this is Mermaid Toast and is supposed to be magical, I didn’t stop at cream cheese. I made cream cheese frosting! Probably the best kind of frosting on the planet.
The color comes from blue-green algae from lake Klamath in Oregon. I put the powder in the frosting and mixed it in, getting this beautiful sea green color that I’m obsessed with. (If you’ve seen my Instagram, then you know my desk has sea green everything.) Then I added some shell pink metallic sparkles to make it extra magical and mermaid-y. Then, I added some super magick to them by offering them to my Deities. The results— delicious! Look for the recipe at the bottom.
Toast and Tarot
I also decided to do a tarot reading for you! I used Dame Darcy’s Mermaid Tarot and Doreen Virtue’s Mermaids and Dolphins oracle deck and drew one card from each. This is a general reading for what to be aware of this week:
Eight of Wands
This card tells us that whatever turbulence we’re experiencing is coming to an end. The seas are calm, the clouds are parting, and the wands line up with purpose. Be clear in your focus and hang in there! The work might not be quite over, but the storm is. Just keep swimming.
A New Dawn
This card reinforces the Eight of Wands. It tells us that the worst is already over. We might not be done quite yet, but the hardest lessons are past. This is a time to release unnecessary things, such as anger or resentment. Examine what is confronting you and let those lessons sink in, then move on. Don’t dwell on them, because great things are to come!
Since Mercury is currently in retrograde, and a lot of us are feeling the effects, this is a hopeful and timely message. Just remember that Mercury in retrograde is not all bad— it’s just difficult and forces us to deal with issues with communications, plans, memories, and revisiting things we thought we were “done” working on. But it also gives us a chance to clear out the debris and recharge with greater intent. So get yourself a cup of coffee or tea, and some mermaid toast, and just go with the flow. 🙂
Mermaid Frosting Recipe:
4 oz. Cream Cheese (room temperature)
2 oz. Grass fed butter (room temperature)
2-5 Tbsp Lakanto Monkfruit Sweetener
1 Tsp Vanilla extract
1-2 capsules (opened) of Klamath Blue Green Algae
Using a fork or electric mixer, combine butter and Lakanto Monkfruit Sweetener until slightly fluffy. Add cream cheese and vanilla and continue to mix. Break open a Klamath Blue Green Algae and add to the frosting. Keep adding the algae until you get the color intensity you like.
Spread on toast of your choice (or cupcakes!) and sprinkle with Shell Pink Edible Glitter. This recipe is gluten-free, vegetarian (can be made vegan with vegan cream cheese and vegan butter), sugar free, and keto-friendly!
