Saw Bianca's post about Kite Hill vegan yogurts and had to try em. I was a big fan of the WholeSoy yogurts and was bummed when they went out of business. Luckily enough, found the Kite Hills were on sale.
vanilla yogurt with blueberry acai granola on top.
trying to stave off a cold - some echinacea/lemongrass tea. Other times, raw garlic cloves chased with hot apple cider vinegar
J made a rainbow salad for us to eat before the New Years' midnight yoga class. We wanted something filling but not heavy. This had chopped carrots, beets, tomatoes, squash, cucumber, mung bean sprouts, and chickpeas in a mustard-avocado dressing. He also made little seitan nuggets to throw in for extra protein. It was good! We were out pretty late, though, so we did get hungry but this was good fuel.
The meditation/letting go ceremony was nice: we wrote down on rice paper what we wanted to leave in 2015 and burned the papers and focused on what we wanted more of in the new year. The class itself was pretty light, but a nice, calm way to start off. We were in Murray Hill area, here is the Empire State Building all lit up after midnight.
The next day we holed up at a coffee shop and read for a few hours. I'm working through Dickens' Pickwick Papers.
Very little food in the house as the new year began - I went to Blossom's new to-go spot on 13th street for lunch on Saturday. This is their smoky avocado wrap with greens, avo, smoky tempeh, and a chipotle sauce. Pretty good, though I'd like to spend less money on food this year...
Sunday breakfast: Kite Hill peach yogurt with more blueberry granola, almond butter, and banana slices. Plus coffee!
more reading - Hax jumped on my lap and we had a quiet, warm Sunday together.
quick miso soup: miso, garlic, onion, spinach, carrot, tofu, mushroom, sesame oil, red pepper flakes.
Hope everyone had a nice beginning to the year. See you guys soon, probably. It does feel nice to be back blogging again. I'll try to keep up the content.
