I’ve been doing a lot of this…
Sadly, not any of this…
Amazingly, I even miss this…
But I have been giggling at this…
That would be Bryan Kest Power Yoga in all his 80’s cut off jeans and Long John glory! As much as I make fun of the cheese factor in this video, Bryan has a wonderful, laid-back, do-only-what-you-can approach to yoga that I adore. He removes the intimidation factor.
I’m also doing a lot of these amazing back poses from Yoga Journal too.
I made an appointment next Wednesday with my doctor for my sore tailbone. It’s feeling a bit better now (with lingering tenderness), but I figure I should get it checked out in case I need an X-ray or physical therapy for it.
Not being able to do cardio exercise is torture for me though. I’m going stir crazy!
As per my Spring goal, I’ve been drinking a lot of fresh juice this week. It feels so good have the juicer back in my life.
Glowing Sunshine Juice
- 1 grapefruit, peeled
- 4 medium carrots
- fresh ginger (approximately 1/2-inch piece)
- 1/4 tsp raw maca powder (optional)
Check it out on the Foodthinkers website here.
I start my morning off with a fresh juice and then have breakfast about 30 minutes later. It makes breakfast extra delicious. :)
When I make juices, I never set out thinking of a ‘recipe’ or ‘flavour’ like I might with my other recipes. I usually just take whatever old veggies we have lying around and throw them in. I buy the old/discounted fruit and veggies from our grocery store specifically for juicing.
Lately I have been juicing with beets (responsible for that beautiful pink colour!), lemons, lime, carrots, ginger, grapefruit, apples (rarely), cucumbers, celery.
I think this one above was: 1/2 beet, 2 carrots, 1/2 English cucumber, 1/2 grapefruit, 1/2 inch piece ginger. It is not very sweet, but I don’t juice with sweet fruits very much (prefer to eat them!). If you like it sweet, add an apple or pear.
The chocolate ones were good, but we both prefer the vanilla ones!
Last night we also made Nut Butter Crusted Parsnip fries. I TRIPLED the recipe this time because we had a friend over to watch the game. They did not last long!
Along with our favourite brew- Mill Street Organic.
Have a great Saturday!
