Pumpkin Bliss Balls

Do you know a yoga studio that is not into bliss balls?? Here’s our latest take. I have Tanya, one of our new tts, to thank for the inspiration behind this recipe. Knowing we were about to embark on a month of “pratyahara” (ie- f0r most of us, quitting chocolate)… she made us these delicious […]

Vegan Kale Pesto

Just when you thought you were sick of kale!! I tried something quite similar to this at About Life and thought… “ive got to be able to make this at home”… I’m still tweaking the ingredients to find those vegan edibles that give the pesto “bite” (e.g. lemon juice/ zest/ garlic)… but I have enjoyed […]

Cool the Fire Element down to Ease Anxiety & Shoulder Pain

My diligent and newly graduated TT,  Teresa Cajes, and I have been  exploring the summer meridians (small intestines; heart; triple heater; pericardium) over the last few weeks when giving our deep relaxation classes. As I researched into what these meridians cover and what happens when there is too much energy in the meridian (jitsu) or […]

Don’t think About Going Vegan Without the Following Recipes

If somebody told me 3 months ago that i would be able to maintain a vegan diet without animal-product cravings, I would never have believed them. If it wasn’t for the following series of wholistic and organic recipes, I would never have made it. Now i have a handful of options that have seamlessly replaced […]

Superfoods Salad

The inspiration for this salad comes from Chargrill Chicken, up the road from my yoga studio. The delicious salad dressing comes from my fellow Dharma Yogi Jenna Pacelli, who is on the same vegan journey as I am on.

Vegetarian Lasagne

Little Dynamo Martine Allars, who had the intrepid task of teaching my Level III students on Saturday mornings, cooked me a delicious vego lasagne a few months back. I have used the fact that I have a blog to squeeze the recipe out of her. For all those students who want more Martine in 2014, […]

Satvic Breakfast Smoothie

If I’d only known that eating “Satvic” could be so delicious, I would have done this years ago. Since I wake up so early, I am enjoying this Superfood Breakfast/ icecream/ smoothie before I go teach my 3 hour October Long weekend Dharma Workshop.
