Delicious lentils

One of my yoga students recently shared a lentils recipe with me, which he had made and thought I would like it as well. Let me just say, wow, delicious. He found it online and it is basically this recipe here. It doesn’t take much work to prepare the ingredients for this recipe. Here’s what […]


Keeping up during my week with snacks

We all need to make sure to take care of ourselves. I find it even more pertinent as a teacher, especially a teacher of yoga. I teach at multiple places for yoga and cycle, which means I drive from one class to the next multiple times a day. My eating schedule depends on my teaching schedule […]


Eating at the buffet

When you stay at an all-inclusive resort for a week that means you pretty much get all the food and drinks you can consume. As I have stated in the past (many times) when I am on vacation I enjoy myself. I don’t worry about what I am eating and drinking. And I know once […]


To stay on plan or to not stay on plan?

My mom comes into town tomorrow night. Curt is heading to Missouri for a high school reunion. So I invited my mom out here for a girls’ weekend. I haven’t decided yet whether the time she is here I will be counting points and tracking my food. I am gonna just go with the flow. […]


Eating out … a lot

I had three lunch dates this week and one dinner date. That’s a lot of eating out for me, especially during the week. On Tuesday I had lunch with my friend/co-worker Melissa. We had sushi. Delicious, filling and healthy. I love sushi. Yesterday I had lunch with my friend/co-worker Stephanie. We had pho (pronounced fuh, […]


Are you being good?

Are you eating healthy? Are you on Plan (aka Weight Watchers Plan)? For anyone who has tried to lose weight or tried to maintain a healthy lifestyle that can be a question you hear from your friends especially as you are trying to decide where to eat lunch. I had a lunch date today. I […]


My fungi dinner

Last night I experimented with portobello mushrooms, avocados, soyrizo and a few other ingredients. My friend James recently told me about an experiment he made in the kitchen and it sounded delicious. I tried to remember everything he told me and changed mine up a little as well. I took two portobello mushrooms and placed them […]


Back to my yoga practice

I was not happy to go to work today. I am not quite sure why. Maybe it was Monday. Maybe because the past few days I slept in rather late for me. But I had quite the attitude today. A little after 4 p.m. I wandered down to the area where we wait for the […]


Comforting … food, booze & mani/pedi

Every day gets a little easier with my Joey gone. When I am sad or depressed or even stressed I turn to food and alcohol. It’s not the healthiest option. But there are much unhealthier choices. I took yesterday off from work. I just took it easy. I lounged around and watched movies. Eventually I […]


Super quick, easy, healthy dinner

I left the house this morning about 6:15; got to work at 7:15; worked until about 4; headed down to the gym at about 4:15 and jumped on the 5:35 shuttle bus; got back to Emeryville about 6:35; headed to Target and then the grocery for Thanksgiving shopping and shopping for a small party we […]
