Yoga+Music {notquite365} Hey Eugene! by Pink Martini – Recipe Edition!

It’s Wednesday and that means the Recipe Edition!

+++++

Spring is here! Spring is here!

The best way to tell spring has arrived (besides the start of high stakes testing) is strawberries have started to show up at the farmer’s market.

Here’s how I have enjoyed them recently.

Yoga+Music(not quite 365) – Medusa by Annie Lennox – 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.   

Ahhh, summer break how I love thee. 

Long days of setting my own schedule, slowing down my life’s pace to match the lazy days of summer. A little of this, a little of that and a whole lot of whatever I want to do. 

And who can forget the summer fruit?!? 

Summer is the perfect time for working on my lame food confession

Like last week, today’s recipe is more of an assembly, rather than a cooking one. Who can really be bothered with cooking when the weather is so nice? 

Strawberry+Nectarine+Yogurt+Coconut = Summer Bliss! 

Serves 1 

handful of strawberries from the farmer’s market, co-op or your back yard – washed, dried and sliced 

nectarine – local and organic – washed and sliced 

a drizzle of plain organic yogurt 

a sprinkle of unsweetened dried coconut 

Optional: a drizzle of agave or natural sweetener of choice 

Toss in your favorite bowl as you go. 

so much better than "fruit" on the bottom

 

Enjoy! 

 What are your go-to healthy foods? How do you change your diet based on the season? Send me your recipe and you may find yourself featured here!

Today’s yoga brought to you by the home practice.   I’m so ridiculously sore from my boot camp session yesterday that I doubt I could make it through a regular class. Yowza! 

Today’s music is Medusa by Annie Lennox.

Yoga+Music(notquite)365 – Day 75 – Fox Confessor Brings the Flood by Neko Case – The Recipe Edition!

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

SNACKS!

Today I’d like you to meet and make friends with the date. (Click the link for the nutritional information on this amazing fruit).

Dates are high in dietary fiber, low in fat, cholesterol, and sodium, and contain more potassium than bananas!

Dates are sweet, healthy, filling little treats and when they are paired with a lightly salted cashew or almond – perfection!

I keep a little container of dates and nuts in my desk at work and snack on them in class. My students are always interested in what I’m eating, but not once has one of them taken me up on the offer to try one.

I can’t even get J. to try one. He thinks they are ugly.

What do you think?

Dates! Better than bananas

Better than bananas

Please let me know if you have ever tried dates and what you think.

 What are your favorite healthy snacks? I need some ideas how to keep hunger at bay.

Please share your favorite recipes!

Today’s yoga brought to you by me! I am teaching my BTSA (Beginning Teacher Support & Assessment) classes to new teachers today and I’ve got to get myself ready.

Today’s music is  Fox Confessor Brings the Flood by Neko Case.  – This is my reentry back into listening to music. I’ve taken some time off – being sick made me crave silence. I guess I’m finally starting to feel like myself again.
