Pre Shri Yoga breakfast should be light enough to withstand downward dogs, forward bends and spinal twists, while giving one enough fuel to endure. A little fruit, chia, hemp and ground flax seeds blended into a smoothie with ice, milk and unsweetened, organic, pure cranberry juice. So, when time takes its toll and my memory slips further I’ll be happy to slurp on this any old-time.

Party Time!!!
Goat Cheese, Egg, Tuna

Chipotle Hummous

As for the wrap pinwheel appetizers, four varieties were prepared :
  1. Chopped Egg: hard-boiled eggsjust cooked with bright yellow yolks, finely chopped green onions, a dollop of Dijon, some olive oil mayonnaise, salt & pepper, wrapped in Smart whole grain tortillas with a handful of organic arugula.
  2. Goat Cheese: Julia’s splendid, tart, black currant jam (last time I used a gourmet chunky fig spread), and arugula.
  3. Tuna Spread: chopped dill, green onions, a dollop of Dijon, olive oil mayonnaise, salt, pepper and finely chopped sweet red pepper.
  4. Chipotle Hummus (Fontaine Santé): shaved carrot strips, sweet red pepper strips, chopped romaine, green onions and finely chopped mint.
….And they were MUCH tastier than your garden variety deli party sandwiches.
Mission accomplished!
  • Thanks to Shri Yoga (click to check their website) for inspiring me to eat light. They’ll have an open house September 23-25 – with several FREE CLASSES.
  • Thanks to everyone who has taken the time to write me. Blogging is just another way of sharing interests. Nice to know what I have in common with whom.
  • Thanks to my brother Eric, Earth Circle Organics for encouraging healthy eating, to my sister Julia Richardson, for being my guiding light in all things food. I call her “Julie & Julia” for obvious reasons.
  • A big thanks to my mom who always fed me right and entertained her heart out.
  • A big thanks to my dad who supplied us with endless beautiful produce and heaps of love.
Wishing everyone unity and peace on the anniversary of 9/11.
