I attended a challenging 90 minute vinyasa yoga class this morning before school. I love the teacher-- what makes a good yoga class really depends of the likelihood of the instructor. I can't stand easy-peasy classes where the instructor just works on mindfulness and stretching. While both of those are great, and that's a main reason I love yoga, I'm there to work out, not work out my mind :) Brittany, the yoga instructor, relies heavily on a cardiac- vinyasa workout. It's not an easy class, however you can go at your own pace.
Upon getting back from the intense, but relaxing yoga class, I made myself a big, colorful salad....
Greens with (leftover) butternut squash, avocado, tofu, and almond dressed in a ginger peanut dressing.
Look at that beautimus mix--orange, white, green, red!
Dinner was just leftovers and a quick salad. I was in NO mood to cook when getting home from classes at 5 pm. To top of all off, my mom and I hit it off a bit. That's the problem with still living at home while in college-- Because you're still learning who you are, you clash in difference with your parents. It's hard; we fight a lot about our similarities and differences. I do love them both deeply, but I'm definitely getting ready to leave the nest soon. It's been much too long at home. But that's a whole other story for a different post :)
Leftover black bean chili with avocado, salad with veggies (dressed in honey, olive oil, nutritional yeast and sea salt) and bread.
Nutritional yeast is a good addition to salads!
I'm off to do some overly-procrastinated homework! Goodnight, lovelies :) xx
