yoga love.

So, this weekend was my first ashtanga yoga teacher training workshop. Man, did i sweat!
I cannot even describe how amazing it was. There is so much to learn, going back thousands of years, and the energy in my group was so, so warm. I have been living without a care in the world of the detailed and magnificent work going on inside my body. Its time to make some changes, and i am so excited, and so ready. Lets go!
Yesterday was spent recuperating with my love and the babe. First, we walked the mountain, and then had some homemade soup and cookies and some much needed rest on the couch. A wonderful day, indeed!

Oh! I'm including a recipe for an amazing salad from this cookbook, Enlightened Eating, by Caroline Marie Dupont.
It's so delicious and super healthy!

Cabbage Delight
2 tbs apple cider vinegar
1 1/2 tbs olive oil
1 1/2 tbs hemp or flax oil
1 tbs honey
2 tsp sea salt
1/2 tsp ground fennel
2 c green cabbage, chopped medium fine
3/4 c red cabbage, chopped medium fine
1/4 c sweet onion, finely chopped
1 rib celery, finely sliced
1 carrot, quartered lengthwise and sliced
1/2 c fresh parsley
1 apple, cored and diced small
1/2 c  raisins or currants
1/2 c pecans or walnuts, chopped
-or 3 tbs pumpkin seeds
1/2 c cheese, diced small
Combine dressing ingredients in the bottom of a large salad bowl, add veg and toss to combine. Keeps well in fridge for a few days.
Enjoy, friends!
Hope you all have a wonderful week!
