My Saturday stared out busy and productive but by noon I turned into a blob and hung around the house for the rest of the day. My alarm went off at the very early hour of 5:15 a.m. so that I could make it over to YogaFlex to for the David Keil ashtanga practice. Ashtanga used to be one of my favorite morning activities (I practiced 2-3 times a week at 6:30 a.m.) but my practice has fallen off and I have been attending more traditional power classes recently. This morning’s practice reminded me how amazing it is to start my day with such a meditative practice. Can’t wait to do it again tomorrow!
I don’t like to eat before I practice ashtanga (because of all the intense binding) so I had this Dahlicious Lassi probiotic yogurt drink to hold me over. They sent me these drinks to sample and at just 110 calories, they are the perfect thing for for a snack or for pre-early morning yoga. I have only tried the mango flavor so far but I really like it.
I was craving a little more substance post-practice so I grabbed a honey whole wheat bagel with veggie cream cheese on my way to teach yoga at the Y. I don’t usually teach on Saturdays but I always love to help out when needed!
The Y where I was teaching is really close to Atherton Mill Market so I decided to swing by and check out the winter offerings. I frequent Atherton Mill Market during the more traditional farmer’s market months but usually don’t visit during the winter. I had so much fun wandering around today. I picked up some organic carrots, kale, farm eggs, goat gouda and garlic gnocchi. I sample the goat gouda while I was there and it was so good!
Lunch featured last night’s leftovers. Lentils with butternut squash, spinach and goat cheese and I added some avocado. I firmly believe that avocado goes with everything. I am slightly addicted to it. Blue corn chips and grapes on the side.
The rest of my afternoon was pretty worthless. Cleaned, painted my nails, watched a movie, contemplated running but decided relaxation was a better option. Dinner tonight was leftover green curry with tofu and eggplant over brown rice.
Dessert. I baked a whole hummingbird cake last night. Help!
Hope you are having a wonderful weekend!
