Yoga+Music365 (day5) – Narrow Stairs by Death Cab for Cutie

Starting today, each Tuesday I’ll share an easy, nutritious recipe so you can join me in the home-cooked self-care.

One of the ways that helps me feel really cared for is home cooking. I’m not a huge foodie or someone who likes to spend a lot of time in the kitchen. I do, however get a huge sense of accomplishment from having cooked and a huge sense of comfort from having eaten healthy, nutritious food.

Breakfast sets the tone for the rest of my day. If I eat a warm, home-cooked breakfast I usually end of eating well the rest of the day. When I do this frequently, my immune system stays intact and I don’t catch every plague that comes into my classroom. Or at least it doesn’t kill me like it used to.

Today’s recipe is from my friend Suzan whose daughter runs New Leaf Ayurveda. While I haven’t been out to the center myself, I have eaten some of their Food For Friends meals – delicious!

SPICED APPLES

Serves 1

Cube one apple

Put apple in saucepan

Cover with filtered water

Throw in a couple of whole cloves, some vanilla, and lots of cinnamon

Cook apples until soft and water has evaporated.

Remove cloves mash apple with a masher.

Eat.

I like to stir in some quinoa or leftover brown rice, Udo’s oil, ricotta cheese and sliced almonds for a well-rounded breakfast. 

Whenever I eat this at school my students always comment that it smells like apple pie. I have to agree!

Today’s yoga = Viparita Karani on my new Hugger Mugger (god, I love that name!) bolster.

Yep, just one pose.

But it’s a really, really good one.

Try it!

Please leave me a comment about anything you like or want to know more about.
