One more MindFULLness workshop!

Please join Angie Pringle and I for the final MindFULLness workshop on Saturday, January 23rd, 2017 (3:30-5 pm, $35, Yoga Public).  We will discuss how plant proteins are a great way to nourish yourself and take care of our planet.  We deserve to eat well, but the way our food is grown can have a taxing effect on the environment.  We will explore sustainable ways to affect positive change in the health of not only us, but the place we call home.  

We are very excited to invite Ryan Pengelly of Tamarack Farms to join us and to share his personal stories of being a quinoa farmer in Manitoba!  There will be an opportunity to buy his quinoa (cash only), and sample tasty treats made with his delicious crop.

Hope you can join us!  Please register at

Thanks so much to everyone that came to the Om Nom Nom Nourish workshop at the Prairie Yogi studio this weekend!  It was so lovely to share the practices of yoga and Ayurveda with you.  If you are looking for the recipes for the Winter Sun Granola Bars and the Pumpkin Ginger Cranberry Snack Bars that I made for the workshop, please visit my food blog at

Until next time, may you keep eating and living well!

Thanks to everyone that came out to Jonathan Austman’s Day of Silence this weekend!  It was an honour to cook for you and support you in your practice.  For those of you interested in recipes, they will (slowly!) be posted up on my food blog, over the next little while.

If you are wondering what we ate, this was the oh-so-Sattvic menu:

Carrot+squash+ginger soup
Beet+black rice+parsley+zureshk+orange salad
Chickpeas+potatoes+cilantro+lemon salad
Homemade sourdough+butter
Gluten-free vegan lemon squares
Homemade herbal tea blends

So if you are ever deliberating on doing a meditation retreat with Jonathan, be rest assured that you will be well-fed if I am there!  Cheers to happy hearts and happy bellies!
