Week 2 Goals: Yoga & Healthy Eating Challenge

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.  

Tell us yours!!
