“Nobody can go back and start a new beginning, but anyone can start today and make a new ending.”
– Maria Robinson
For some reason the idea of change has me really excited. I have all of these dietary changes I have to make which could be a bummer but all I can think of is my health and how much better I will feel! I love that each day really is a fresh start full of possibilities! Today I thought I’d get a great start to my day with a steaming plate of scrambled eggs with artichoke hearts, smoked salmon and a GF english muffin.
Nutrition Tip: Salmon is a really good source of omega-3’s which are helpful this time of year if you battle with dry skin. Omega-3’s also play a big roll in circulation and heart health, so much so that regular consumption of these fatty acids can reduce heart attack risk by one thrid.
Yoga Pose of the Day: Adho Mukha Vrksasana (Handstand)
For me the biggest part of accepting change is getting over fear and shifting my perspective so I warmed up with some sun salutations this morning followed by Handstand to literally get a different view.
Then it was off to work with my Kombucha green tea and a banana for later.
I was really excited the other day when I found some coconut milk yogurt which is both soy and dairy free. I tried it out today for lunch with some pumpkin puree and cinnamon. It was so good! Not as creamy as other yogurt but great flavor. I also had a pear and another GF pumpkin muffin.
I needed a little something before my yoga class so I snacked on a few rice cakes and rice cheese.
After a class full of core strengthening and backbends I was hungry! I had some of my all time favorite soup which I’m happy to say is free of anything on my allergy list 🙂 I ate a handfull of baby carrots as it was heating up and had some veggie chips along with it. I of course had to spice it up a litte with some cayanne, black pepper and oregano. De-lish!
