Yoga+Music(notquite365) Time Without Consequence by Alexi Murdoch – Recipe Edition!

It’s Tuesday! And that means the Recipe Edition!  

Each Tuesday I will share an easy, nutritious recipe so you can join me in the home-cooked self-care.  

It is the last week of school and I’m feeling quite rushed for time. This need for speed has shown up in all areas of my life and especially in my kitchen. I’ve still be seeking healthy options, but during these last couple weeks the need for speed has trumped all.

I’ve eaten today’s recipe a couple of times over the last weeks and have forgotten to take photos each time. A bit preoccupied I guess.

You’ll need to picture dark green leaves, deep purple slices and bright white creamy bits with chopped nuts.

Today’s recipe is more of an assembly, rather than a cooking recipe. Thank goodness for Trader Joe’s and their inexpensive healthy ingredients.

Beet, Spinach, Goat Cheese Salad

Serves 2

1 packet of TJ’s ready to eat beets rinsed and sliced (an egg slicer makes this job so easy)

half bag of ready to eat baby spinach (rinse and dry one more time just to be sure)

a crumble of soft goat cheese

a handful of chopped nuts {pecans are my favorite}

a drizzle of olive oil

a splash of balsamic vinegar

salt and pepper to taste.

  Assemble on the plates.

Today’s yoga brought to you by the restorative home practice.   I’m still finishing up paperwork at school, so class seems unlikely.

Yoga+Music365 (day26) – Cardinology by Ryan Adams and the Cardinals – -Recipe Edition!

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

Today’s recipe was found on WordPress at Healthy Habits Coach. Check out her blog for more healthy recipes and tips.

 I love beets and am always looking for ways to get more vegetables in my body. To be honest, I like buying them more than making them. This salad was easy and delicious. The easy is really important because I hate making salads.

Even if you don’t like beets, you should try it. It doesn’t taste very “beet-y” – it’s cool, crisp, crunchy,  a bit sweet, a bit tart and it’s really pretty. I wish I had a picture, but I never remember to take photos of my food.

Beet and Grapefruit Salad (for 2)
½ beet, grated (RAW – I kept the skin on)
1 pink grapefruit, peeled and diced {I used blood oranges instead}
1 stock of celery, diced
¼ cup red onion, diced {I omitted – we didn’t have any}
Balsamic Vinaigrette to moisten
Slivered roasted almonds to sprinkle on top

Mix and enjoy.

Please let me know if you made the recipe and what you think. Also tell me what you like and want to hear more about.
