juicing – wellness in a glass!

Welcome everyone to Day 15 of our 21 Day Yoga Challenge! Today’s video has a great recipe for juicing. Wow, I wish you could taste this juice. It’s truly fantastic!

Juicing is like getting a shot in the arm of good health. It delivers micro-nutrients to the body and is so tasty and good for you.

To come up with a recipe, I just look in the refrigerator or on the counter to see what I’ve got in the way of fruits and vegetables. Here’s the wonderful combination that I came up with today:

  • a handful of kale
  • some mint
  • small piece of ginger root
  • 2 apples
  • 1 pear
  • 3 stalks of celery
  • 2 large carrots
  • 1/4 of a cucumber
  • pomegranate seeds

If you want a simple juice recipe, try carrots, celery and apples. That’s a juicing mainstay.



P.S. Look for a new yoga asana video from me tomorrow.

you are what you eat: here’s what I ate yesterday

I haven’t missed a day of yoga and meditation since I made the commitment on January 2nd to practice everyday this year. As it goes, one positive thing leads to another and I’m also more conscious about my diet. When I say “diet” I mean what I eat each day, not “diet” in the form of trying to lose weight. Although it’s a funny thing, I have lost 5 pounds without “dieting”.

I’ve always enjoyed eating healthily. I love fruits and vegetables and know that I feel so much better when I eat well. But like all of us, from time to time I slip into eating patterns that could be better. So now is the time to pay a bit more attention and be present (ah, yoga summed up in two words!) with my food choices.

Here is what I ate yesterday. Take a look and let me know your thoughts. Love it? Hate it? And I’d really like to know what YOU eat. I’m kinda of geek like that. Call me a food geek. If you like this post (you can actually like it below to let me know), then maybe I’ll feature this once or twice a month.

(cooking notes: OMG! the creaminess of the eggs with the garlic and kale = fabulous!)


Tilapia with Asian Green Sauce and brown rice

(cooking notes: HOLY YUMMO! Did I lick the plate? I believe I did. This very healthy, low-fat dish is so delicious. The sauce is a delightful mix of cilantro, lime juice, ginger, scallions, etc.)

Snacks during the day

Ideas for Healthy Living: Juicing

If you are looking for ways to get more fruits and vegetables into your diet, consider juicing. It’s fast, fun and very nutritious because it delivers micro nutrients quickly into the body. I actually have always loved fruits and vegetables served in any form – raw or cooked, but I like juicing because it tastes great.

So check out today’s video on juicing and get my tips and tricks. Adding this healthy habit is a great way to prepare for the start of our 28 Day Yoga Challenge on February 1st.
