One of the best things about yoga (if not THE best), is that after each practice, you really do grow and you really do transcend into a higher self. You become enlightened by your own abilities and the miracles of your amazing body. You learn, you discover a lot about yourself, and you gain a great deal of humility. When all of this radiates from ourselves, we put peace into our lives and into the lives of those around us.
UNF…most awesome lunch ever- “cheesy” kale chips and a wrap with garlic aioli, vegan cheddar, red onion, tomato, kale, and sesame garlic tempeh :9
This day was blessed with an abundance of delicious and good-for-you foods; and short, but rejuvenating naps! Oh, and some alternate-nostril breathing followed by some meditation.
For breakfast, I had shredded wheat and bran cereal with vanilla almond milk, and FRESH-picked blackberries and raspberries. They were so sweet with just a hint of tartness. I also had some griddled red potato hash browns, skins included.
For lunch, I went to one of my favorite places with some girlfriends. I had a “Beet Burger” which wasn’t really a burger, but it was tasty. It consisted of balsamic roasted beets and portobello mushrooms on a bed of spinach, vegan cheese, and onion marmalade.
For dinner, I had a wheat pita bread sandwich- avocado spread with Dijon mustard; and filled with spinach, griddled tofu, red onions, Roma tomatoes, honey-roasted almonds, and jalapeño almond cheese. I also had a glass of carrot, orange, and apple juice to wash it all down.
I snacked on a huge vegan cookie throughout the entire day- peanut butter and chocolate chip goodness.
Last night, I practiced drawing my Enso. I’m gonna be working on a painting for my beau’s birthday. I know, the Enso is supposed to be a single brush stroke, but I’m not that legit, so it will consist of a hundred or so strokes…haha :P The art session also involved some hot dark chocolate almond milk, mmmmm…
The weekend was busy and I was able to get my man to watch Wanderlust. Omg, too funny. Please watch it if you haven’t.
I hope everyone had a pleasant weekend :)
Today is Granola Day because after yoga tonight, I’m gonna make some granola. What to put into the concoction? Give me ideas, lovelies?
So freaking good, ugh…vegan avocado melt with Roma tomatoes, red onions, vegan cheese and vegan mayo; blue corn tortilla chips and a smoothie with um, I forgot…I think mango, apple, something, something, honey, and ginger. I am so full, OMgah.
Cinnamon-dusted sweet potato fries are currently baking in the oven while I’m eating homemade muesli :9
on vegan buffalo “chicken wings” and brown rice right now. OMg, so good. Soy Dream’s Butter Pecan ice cream for dessert later.
Mouth. is. burning. Namaste!!! Love y’all.
