Last night one of my girlfriends and I went to a Karma yoga class. My yoga studio, Body in Mind Yoga Studio (http://www.bodyinmindyogastudio.ca/) offers these every couple months, and they are AWESOME. You can bring friends and family, and the class fee is a small donation that goes to a different charity each month.
This month all proceeds from Karma yoga go to the Crohns and Colitis Foundation of Canada.. It was the first time that my friend ever attended a yoga class and we had a blast!
Instead of snacking on chocolates everytime I need a snack, I tried a few new healthier options in the past few days. My new addiction is to home made parfaits. I love love love these and they are so simple to put together. The parfait I made was a raspberry one. Here are the ingredients I used:
I put one cup of Source Vanilla Yogourt, half a cup of raspberries, and a handful of granola (which I picked up at the Bulk Barn....it was my first time there and I loved it....yes I have a very exciting life).
YUM! Such a good snack and a nice break from mini chocolate bars.
Also on my health kick day, I made my first smoothie! Here are the ingredients I used:
This is such an easy snack to make. I used one cup of fruit, half a cup of So Good Vanilla Soy Milk, and Source Vanilla Yogourt (my fav!). The little dish is filled with hemp seeds. I know I know, they are some sketchy sounding seeds. However, they are filled with amino acids and fatty acids that our bodies are unable to make. I found these at Bulk Barn too.
Put these in a blender and VOILA!
A delicious smoothy. In a wine glass. Because everything tastes better in a wine glass. My first attempt at making a smoothie went well aside from the occasional frozen fruit that I kept eating. Thanks crappy blender.
So that is the tale of my healthy day. I think my case of HTR is almost cured. Just in time to eat more chocolate:)
