Thank you to all who posted your goals for Week 1 of the Challenge.
By week two of the Yoga & Healthy Eating Challenge I hope that you are starting to establish a routine.
You can use this post for your Goals for Week 2.
Reminder: Healthy Eating Demo on Sunday July 14th at 4pm. Focusing on recipes plant-based proteins like Tempeh and Tofu. We will finish by 5:30 or 5:45. Make it a wellness afternoon and stay for the 6pm Hatha Yoga Class.
Last Friday I went to a 5 course Vegan Dinner at SpecialTea Cafe, a very sweet little spot in mid-city, just a few blocks away from Balance Yoga & Wellness. They are having Vegan Brunches on Sundays and have lots of wonderful teas. The food I sampled was delicious!
I also experimented with a new recipe for zucchini bread. The recipe I started with is the Zucchini Bread from Cathy Fisher’s blog. I want to try it one more time before I post the recipe. My bread came out very tasty but very dense. The rising didn’t quite happen. I love having treats like muffins & breads that are not loaded with oils and excessively sweet. This recipe uses only dates for sweetness, and it was just the right amount of sweetness.
I also received this recipe for Quinoa, Avocado Vanilla Pudding and Berry Breakfast Parfait from Choosing Raw, by Gena Hempshaw which I can’t wait to try. I am interested in the pudding made with avocado and almond milk. Perhaps it would be a nice yoghurt replacement? Gena visited Balance some time back and wrote a very nice review. I love her recipes, they are creative sometimes-raw and vegan.
For more recipes, visit my own Healthy Living Blog. I haven’t updated it lately, but you will find some inspiration there I hope!
My own goals for this week are to avoid white flour completely.
