Here's a quick, easy and delicious meal. I can't take credit, it's my man's favourite meal to make. He puts it all together in less than 1/2 an hour.
|Pasta & Summer Veggies|
|salad with balsamic vinegrette|
fresh herbs (basil, oregano, parsley)
Boil your favourite pasta for required time.
Fry onions in olive oil. Add garlic, zucchini, peppers & tomatoes. Sprinkle with sea salt
Serve pasta with veggies, topped with capers & fresh herbs.
homemade croutons (toast cut into squares, drizzled with olive oil)
Wash and cut lettuce. Top with sliced tomatoes, green onions, and croutons.
salt & pepper
herbs (basil, parsley, chives)
Mix and serve over salad.
Smoothies are great, especially in the summer when you can get local fresh fruit. Frozen fruit works well too, but fruit starts to release vitamins as soon as it's cut, so the fresher the better. If you like it cold, just add some ice.
Jason's been making smoothies in the morning for the whole family and baby Levi loves them! He throws a bunch of fruit in the baby bullet and blends it with mint and orange juice (most people use a blender, but a baby bullet works too). If you prefer something creamier you can add a non-dairy milk or yogurt (soy milk, almond milk, coconut yogurt, etc).
|choose your favorite mix of fruits... blend... and voila!|
|banana, mango, blueberries, fresh mint from the garden and orange juice|
|Nature's Path cereal with banana & flax seeds (a good source of fiber & omega-3's)|
|Nature's Path makes lots of different kinds of cereal,|
it's organic and the packaging is Eco-friendly too!
With a last minute change of plans we went down to NYC for the Blueprint for Joy Jivamukti Gathering and Levi's first road trip. With a week of asana classes, meditation sessions and lectures on animal rights, peace and unity, the place was buzzing! Although I wasn't able to attend all the classes, I did get to take class with David Life and Sharon Gannon. It brought me back to teacher training with so many familiar faces and the amazing energy of so many people gathered together practicing yoga and focusing on the goal of peace.

So I decided to make a little documentary of Luna Yoga... (as I'm sure some of you noticed us sneaking in some shots here and there). I had so much fun making this video! For those of you who have not been to the studio, this is a little sneak preview, and for the regular visitors... you might be able to spot yourself in downward dog...
