Recent Eats: 2 Breakfasts, 4 Lunches and 5 Dinners

Good morning!

I’m on a break between yoga classes. I taught at 6 a.m. and I’m heading back to teach again at 9:45 a.m. The Thursday 9:45 is a new class for me (and the studio). We just added five new “not hot” classes to our morning schedule. These classes are held in a warm (think 82-85 degrees) studio instead of our hot studio (which is 100 degrees and about 55-65% humidity). They still feature our signature power flow but without the crazy heat. I know 82-85 still seems pretty warm but you wouldn’t believe the difference!

We added this new class format about a year ago and I’m really excited to finally be teaching one of them with the addition of the morning classes. While I L-O-V-E hot yoga, it’s so refreshing to teach a class where the heat isn’t such a focus. It makes me happy that we can accommodate everyone and that the heat isn’t a barrier to entry. The class sizes are a bit smaller and that’s also a nice change of pace! 🙂

I’m sharing some recent eats with you today and I think you’ll find some new and different ideas!

Dinner

Moroccan Chicken with Green Olives and Lemon

My favorite recent dinner was this Moroccan Chicken with Green Olives and Lemon.

Moroccan Chicken with Green Olives and Lemon

We ate it two nights in a row. The first time I served it with roasted eggplant and green beans.

And the second night with sauteed eggplant and tomatoes over rice.

Bone-in pork chop cooked in a cast iron with Dizzy Pig Red Eye Express

Bone-in pork chops seasoned with Dizzy Pig Red Eye Express, which is a coffee-infused rub and so good on pork. I cooked the pork chop in a cast iron skillet. Roasted carrots and super crispy herb potatoes along with leftover green beans on the side.

One-pan roasted vegetable dinner with Italian Chicken Sausage

Our favorite one-pan roasted dinner with chicken Ttalian sausage, rutabaga, brussels sprouts, onion and carrots. This was seasoned with Dizzy Pig Mediterraneanish.

Salmon seasoned with Dizzy Pig Shakin The Tree

And finally, wild Alaskan salmon seasoned with Dizzy Pig Shakin’ the Tree and baked with a lemon on top. Roasted broccoli, rutabagas and beets on the side.

I know I wrote a whole post about it but I seriously use Dizzy Pig rubs almost every single day! (And I have no ongoing partnership with them…my family has just loved their products for 10+ years!)

Off to teach my yogis! Have an excellent day! 🙂

For my yogis, do you prefer hot, warm or completely unheated classes? 

What’s been on your lunch or dinner rotation lately?

    All of these meals look so good!

    I LOVE heated yoga. I keep my studio at around 85. It’s a small room with low ceilings so it ends up getting closer to 95 when its full. Nothing better than a sweaty yoga practice.
