I’ve got my toe’s in the sand and a Pina Colada in my hand just dreaming of warm days and long sunsets!  Why drink those commercial concoctions when you can easily make your own with or without the rum!  Mine is without the rum but I add 1/2 a scoop of protein powder.

First thing in the morning – Eat Like A Yogi

23 Jul

Yoga is a union between the mind and body.  In yoga practice we are aware of every detail and pay close attention to the way we move our body.  The same union applies to healthier food choices by avoiding meat, consuming fresh water and eating mostly grains, fresh fruits and produce.

If your day is busy just grab some fruit and eat on the go.  The yogi way is to eat slowly and savor each bite.

If you have the time; go ahead  sit down, read the newspaper and have yourself a bowl of  nutrient rich fruit.

Why not have some grains with that fruit such as a nice bowl of oatmeal, no sugar needed because  the fruit sweetens it up.
