Shlomi, our Bendybods coach , keeps surprising us. After mentioning to him how I’ve turned to Israeli food for healthy vegetarian options, he flicks me not one, but 3 delicious takes on the traditional hummus recipe.
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 bliss balls. She’s one of those talented people who can whip up anything with what’s available in the fridge and pantry so she had no set recipe… but with a bit of trial and error, i finally have a version to share. Enjoy
Ingredients (but be playful with what you have around the kitchen too)
1/2 cup roast pumpkin
cup of ground seeds/ nuts (or almond meal… whatever you have- make sure it represents the dry component of the mixture)
teaspoon or 2 of chais style ground spices (think cardamom/ ginger/ star anise/ cinnamon etc)
shredded coconut- some for the mixture/ some for rolling the balls
Blend all ingredients… make balls…. roll in coconut…. refridgerate….
During my Dharma Yoga Teacher training, one of my fellow yogis, Jenna Pacelli, gave me a wonderful “satvic” salad dressing recipe. Enjoy on your Superfoods Salad.
1 tablespoon of unhulled tahini
splash of tamari (we were using Braggs- if you can find it)
Thanks Jenna: Jennapacelli.com
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 my old way of eating:
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.
I scoff the lot as soon as it’s out of the oven!!
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, stay tuned… especially late feb/ early March.,. She’ll be back.
Vegan Pumpkin Lasagna
This comes via my great friend and wonderful yoga teacher Naomi, who is sending great raw and vegan recipes through as I struggle not to make an impact on this earth with the food choices I am making.
We had a very intense TT weekend… 3.5 hours of handstands; 2 hours of extra posture teaching practice; 4 hours of sutras discussions
We couldn’t have done it without Zehavit’s yummy spelt cookies!!
Thanks Zee Chef!!
