Today started of with a 9am yoga practice at Moksha Yoga. Two things were different today about my yoga practice:
1) I went knowing I was going to try the 90 minute practice, whereas up until now I had only been attending the 60 minute practice – mostly because I wasn’t sure if I was ready for 90 minutes of yoga, but I rather enjoyed it.
2) I didn’t realize prior to going that the practice was actually Ashtanga instead of Moksha, so that was a pleasant surprise. I felt much more invigorated after today’s practice than I do after the relaxation of Moksha and it helped put me in the mood to do what I do best…cooking!!
Even though the cleanse will be finished in two days, I still need clean food on hand so that I won’t be encouraged to cheat! With that, as soon as I got home I whipped up a batch of Kale chips because we love them so much. Yumsters!
Then I made some of my Fresh Basil Pesto which I cleansed by omitting the Parmesan-Reggiano or Vegan parmesan flavour grated soy topping and replacing it with 2 tsbp. of nutritional yeast.
Finally, I made another batch of the No Bake Breakfast Bars because they are fantastic as a quick breakfast or as a small treat on the weekend when I first wake up and sip my hot lemon water.
Once all my inside chores were done, I headed outside to start planting my vegetable garden.
This year we (when I say we, I mean Al) expanded the garden again by creating a bed in the front yard. We get lots of great sun out front, and since peppers never seem to do well in our regular veggie garden, we thought we would grow them in a very sunny spot in hopes of better results.
