Hi my loves- it’s been a while but I am hoping to keep posting soon! Things have been busy- lots of teaching, yoga training, and spending time with family and friends. My weekend was pretty low key (I am trying to keep the beginnings of a cold away). I taught in the teacher training, went to see Cloud Atlas ( I liked it but a bit too long), and took a nap or two. What about you?
I am totally in love with the fall weather but it is getting cold fast and I am so not ready for winter. While we endured hurricane Sandy last week I did a bit of baking. I posted these gluten-free muffins on facebook and many of you were curious about how to make them. I actually found the recipe on pinterest. I try to be gluten free but I have really been off the wagon so here’s the getting back on! You can find the recipe here but I added fresh blueberries and I used agave instead of molasses/honey because that’s what I had. You can also use earth balance instead of actual butter. Also just remember that all ovens are different so temperature and length of bake time might need to be adjusted.
There’s been some green going on as well.
Green juice- in the mix was romaine lettuce, kale, pear, lemon, apple ginger. So good.
This is the usual- vega protein powder in vanilla, coconut milk, banana, and nut butter. Amazing.
And probably one of the more exciting things- the fur children. Presley is my first pet. I never had a cat or dog growing up and as you all know- I love him to death (even though he sometimes pounces at my head and bites me). M and I had gerbils and my dad had snakes but you can’t really cuddle with any of those things.
M and I would always see little orange cats and call them marmalade so when I happened to see one up for adoption- I just couldn’t resist his little face. I adopted him from Charm City Animal Rescue and he was actually free. If you LIKE their facebook page- every day they post pics of the animals being fostered.
So I named him Marmalade and well, he’s a kitten alright. Jumps up onto the stove and into the trashcans! But look how adorable!? So precious. Both the brothers have been getting along pretty well (they are both sleeping as I type this. One on my bed and the other on the unfolded pile of laundry). Unfortunately Presley is going though a cancer scare right now and I am trying to stay positive so send him lots of positive kitty thoughts!!
Anyways- I hope you are all safe from hurricane Sandy, had a great Halloween, and congrats to the newest group of 200 hour Charm City Yoga Teacher Trainee’s!!!
