“What yoga teachers do and what chefs do is not so different,” he said. “We take everyday actions like moving and eating, and slow you down so you can appreciate them.”

It is one of those things that you never really think you could do because it would take so much time and effort. On the contrary. It was super easy
And even though I cooked it too long it was still a delicious breakfast treat this fine Tuesday morning.
2 Cups of oats
1/4 c. of honey (I used Beeline honey. And so should you! It's made here in Chicago, so it's local, AND it helps people facing significant barriers to employment, particularly those with histories of criminal conviction)
1/4 c. PURE Maple Syrup
1/3 c. Olive Oil
Three hand fulls of slivered almonds
Three hand fulls of craisins
(you can also use whatever dried fruit and nuts you want.)
Cook for 20 minutes in a 300 degree oven
stir after 20 minutes
Put in for another 15 minutes
Lay out the granola on a piece of tin foil to cool
Once it hardens break into pieces
I had mine with yogurt for b-fast

And when you are trying to lose a few extra pounds they get lame before the leafy greens even hit your lips.
I found a salad that I like. That the husband likes. That I don't get sick of because there are no leafy greens involved.
Alright. It kinda has a Waldorf salad feel but more veggies and fruit.
Here it is.
half of a bell pepper
half of a cumcumber
half of a tomato
half of an avocado
Toss in some...
berries (blue, black, straw, rasp, whatevs)
nuts (I used spiced walnuts, I usually use almonds so whatever floats the boat)
Now! Mix in a few drizzles of Newman's Own Lighten Up Honey Mustard Dressing.
Mix it all up
There you go!

The nutrition month started
Today I made peas (my fave) with almond crusted salmon with yogurt sauce
Chopped up some almonds in the food processor
coated the salmon fillets with egg, dipped themin the almond mix
put them in the oven for like 12 minutes at 425 degrees
Mixed some plain yogurt with lemon juice and parsley
High protein, good fat meal.
