Kermit The Frog Here

by HEAB on April 18, 2011

I ate a lot of green stuff this weekend. Spinach and or avocados invaded almost every meal…


Mint Chocolate Chip Smoathie

No, Smoathie is not a typo, and I’m starting up a petition to get it added to the Oxford English Dictionary. Will you sign it? 😉

Another avocadolicious meal…


Emily’s (the glowing mama-to-be) Black Bean Cocoa Quinoa

I sautéed my veggies in butter rather than olive oil, but otherwise I followed Emily’s exact recipe. The mix of spices added so much flavor, and my plain goat milk yogurt topping really helped balance out the heat.  Nadia, I am loving cayenne more and more everyday!

Now onto yoga…because avocados = green = Kermit the frog (hence the title) = frog pose = yoga. Are you following me?

Saturday’s vinyasa tune-up was just what I needed to reinvigorate my practice. Seriously, I was in better yoga shape my last month of pregnancy than I am now. However, I will get back there! I can still do Crow and headstand, but my Chaturanga strength is gone. My teacher recommended I do mini push-ups to build up my arm and chest muscles, and yesterday and today, I did a mini-flow during tummy time with Summer. My goal is to do yoga everyday, even if that means just a few Sun Salutations or some Pranayama breathing in the morning. It’s amazing what a little yoga can do for me. Ahhh, I love it.
