Happy New Year!

Wishing everyone a happy, healthy and prosperous 2017. May you and your loved ones experience more love, happiness and laughter. Speaking of laughter, I hope you can enjoy this short video I put together about a dancing carrot. The carrot is locally grown by Kahumana Organic Farm & Cafe and was distributed by Oahu Fresh. Two awesome companies helping to feed Hawaii.

New Year, New Goals
I am learning how to film and edit video for my personal and professional growth. The video is a little shaky to me – and I am working on trying to fix that. Feel free to give feedback below – would love to get your thoughts!

World Vegan Day

Today is world vegan day! In celebration, I have prepared a dish that includes delicious local produce that can be found at any farmers market (see below).

During my YTT, many of my classmates were vegan and we had a whole class on yoga diet. Some may automatically assume that yogis are all vegan because vegans practice abstaining from the use of any animal products, particularly in diet. However yogis back in the day were vegetarian.

“These are ingredients that enhance clarity and lightness, keeping the body light and nourished and the mind clear,” Gary Kraftsow, founder of the American Viniyoga Institute. In other words, a diet that offers your body a great basis for practice—or encourages the same effects as practice—makes for a great yogic diet.  

Some yogis even ate meat, but very rarely. To learn more check this article out on yogic diet. Full disclosure: I am not a vegan but I try to eat a plant-based diet.
