Juice today was 1 pear, 1/2 lemon, small piece of ginger, handful of spinach, 1/2 beet and 1.5 carrots
Does anyone look forward to waking up and drinking some coffee as much as me? I don't know if there is anyone that does. Yesterday I didn't get to drink all of my coffee because I am administering the NY state math exam and I cannot bring any drinks to the test. So this morning I am enjoying a cup before I go to work, so I get my fix!
Yesterday I came home and did some much needed yoga. I hopped on my favorite yogadownload.com and did an hour of Yoga Detox. I just love how an hour of yoga totally clears my mind and relieves stress. It really doesn't matter how much or how little of it you can do, just breathing and stretching out makes me feel so much better. I have been working on my crow and holding it maybe even half a second longer....exciting right?? Speaking of yoga...has anyone checked out the yoga challenge this month yet? My day is next week to host it!
Before I post a recipe for the day I just have to say something about negative comments. I was reading Averie's blog last night and she was talking about some of the negative comments she gets. I really don't understand why anyone would post comments that are so mean and clearly hurting someone's feelings. People who write blogs put themselves out there and yes, maybe they make themselves vulnerable, but why would someone intentionally be mean? I just don't understand because I really feel like it takes so much more effort to say something not nice than to say nothing at all. If you don't like what someone is writing about, why not just close the blog and not read it at all? Why be mean? Okay, I'm done ranting, I just feel for the people who receive negative comments, when it takes A LOT of effort and time to write a blog!
On to my recipe....
After making Angela's life changing nut butter fries many times now, I knew I needed to try her spelt burgers. I was trying to find something for dinner and I remember these. I wasn't sure if Danny would like it, but I knew he could always have a PB sandwich if he hated them.
I didn't have some of the ingredients that Angela used, so I had to wing it a little bit.
I threw in carrots, swiss chard, 1/2 red onion, chick peas.
All mixed together.
with the flour, chia seeds and sunflower seeds added.
molded into patties (I don't really like the word patties...anyone else?)
