Crepe-cakes. Because it's not quite a delicate crepe, but not a fluffy pancake either.
In the spirit of all things autumn, here's a healthy recipe for pumpkin spice crepe-cakes! It's also in line with a Paleo diet. Since these are flourless, expect a different consistency than normal pancakes. Instead of flour, these are thickened up with canned pumpkin and eggs, therefore the texture is somewhere in between a crepe and a pancake.
If you like healthy eating and anything pumpkin-spiced, this will be right up your alley. And if you haven't checked out my recipe for a healthier version of the Pumpkin Spice Latte, give it a try as well...
Last week, I celebrated another anniversary of teaching yoga. About this time last year, I wrote the post 3 Lessons From Teaching Yoga, so I've been reflecting over this year to see what new perspectives I've gained.
I re-read my short post from last year and those three lessons of going with the flow, not expecting perfection, and not taking myself so seriously still resonate with me on a daily basis.
This year, I'd add the importance of showing up and being myself...
My mission statement is to make yoga and healthy living relatable and approachable for all. I recently had an idea to start a column on my blog where the content aims to "decode" some of the terms you hear in yoga. I've realized that the vocabulary and Sanskrit throw some people off, and since they don't know what these terms mean, they lose interest or are afraid of yoga. But yoga shouldn't be scary, intimidating or unrelateable (I've even written about that here in Yoga: Where To Start?). Instead, it should be meaningful, inclusive, and (hopefully) a really fun never-ending personal journey. Therefore, in this new category of my blog, I'll do my best to take some of these terms / items / chants and explain them.
I'm starting with the term drishti, one of my favorite words. It's really fun to say. If you’ve ever been in a yoga class and heard the instructor mention your drishti and immediately thought “Uh oh. I didn't bring a drishti.”... then this post is for you. It sounds mysterious, but when you begin to really understand what drishti refers to, it can revolutionize your yoga practice.
