Holy Smokes

It’s been a long time and I have missed you!

 

 

I was for sure that I wasn’t going to get carried away with the holidays and rigmarole of buzzing to and from parties, stores, filling out cards and wrapping presents, but yea right. I was mistaken. My family was awesome- Charades was hilarious. Relationships expanded, and my clients were sweet as pie.

 

I’ve kept my word: yoga everyday. Just last night I taught a candlelit yoga at 10pm. Comment for details. Our practice was set for acceptance, gratitude, and contentment.

 

Since Christmas, I’ve been juicing like a pro. http://www.brevilleusa.com/beverages/juicers.html

Here’s two tips I am gonna share with you that most people don’t talk about.

 

For starters, some people have an aversion to putting berries in a juicer, especially poorly trained employees of juice bars, and let’s face it they advise more than half of our juice drinking population, therefore creating the standard. BUT the truth is strawberries are the perfect compliment to your all green drink. Of course there are many great recipes, but IMPROVISE you will be enamored with yourself.

 

And the next tip people is supremely important!! YOU CAN KEEP THE PULP AND COOK WITH IT. Hello?! Isn’t this fantastic! The juicer gives you a beautiful start to the morning and then at some point when your ready for solids, you can take all that kale and throw it in a skillet with eggs for the omelet you wouldn’t have had otherwise.

 

But what about if you don’t separate the pulp, so in your bin you have grapefruit, carrots, kiwi, apple, and spinach. You might not want to make a stir-fry or omelet with this. No problem. You can make COOKIES!!!   Yes! Wholesome and delicious cookies.

 

Get flour or bread mix that is more grain/seed based than white flour and add whatever fixings you see fit. They are great between meals, on the go, or for the kids. But don’t waste them all on the kids, enjoy them as well. I promise yet again you will be enamored, maybe even wink next time you pass yourself in the mirror. 😉

 

So what else? Swimming of course. Probably staying at the two to three times a week mark.

Haven’t been running or doing much cardio otherwise. Ankle needs the rest.

I left the restaurant PARK 112. More of a hassle than a hustle. HA!

 

Kaia studio in Greenwich has been blessed with my presence and I have good things to say about them. http://www.kaiayoga.com/

They’ve initiated a pose of the month and each class sets that intention in different ways base on the teacher. This month is tadasana.

Comment for details.

 

 

 

Today’s juice- strawberries, kiwi, spinach, kale, orange, apple, carrot.

Pulp- cookies. (In the oven now)

I also made a beautiful little

Egg salad with pesto veganaise dipped into with Susie’s Thin rice cakes. These little square cakes are natural, inexpensive, and tasty!! They are available in Whole Foods and Mrs. Greens. Which by the way, there’s am enormous Mrs. Greens on central by the White Plains/Hartsdale border.

 

 

Last Request: If anyone knows of teens/ Tweens that can benefit or are interested in yoga, please Facebook or comment here so that I can invite them to my teen/tween class @ wainwright house in Rye.    http://www.wainwright.org/programs.htm   —-> very cool programs.

Middle school can be emotional and parents are the enemy. Yoga can do a lot for them physically and mentally. Look forward to hearing from you and being back.   https://www.facebook.com/tiffany.fuentes.581  (find me and friend me)

 

 

 

Namaste
