Tis the season…..

….to eat watermelon..tra lalalala lalalala – or put it in the vitamix with ice and whizz it up. Perfect as the heat and humidity in the Metropolis rises. When it gets like this I simply do not want to eat, preferring a nice juice or smoothie.
Having said that a dear friend of mine returned from a vacation in the states with a number of goodies for me: maca, cocao, flaxseeds and some Larabars. Larabars are here in Tokyo, but not all flavors. So was delighted to see in my goodie bag an apple pie larabar….what a disappointment. Tasted very similar to the cinnamon roll larabar. My hubby agreed. Anyone else experience this?
Currently in the process of ordering a dehydrator. Something I have steered away from for two years, but as interest grows in Japan and some raw work is coming my way, I need to be open minded and cater to all. Hubby is delighted that I can experiment with pizza and cookies….although i don’t want either of us to get dependent on such foods, choosing to keep as much of our diet in it’s natural state as possible.
Two large glasses of watermelon juice.
half an apple pie larabar
Will have banana, ice and spirulina later.
I have to up my greens. Following my recent hospital visits I was found to be very low in iron and Vit B12. My own fault – I don’t each much, and I have come to realize that I simply can not be 100% fruitarian. I need more substance. So am on iron tablets for a couple of month and B12 tabs – not happy about this, but am wanting to increase my levels and bring balance to my diet naturally.
I’ve also started adding MsM to my diet – adding some to a morning glass of water. Helps with the yoga and them ole’ joints.
Still with my ashtanga, but play with vinyasa. Have been teaching a lovely flow this week of varying levels, but incorporating handstands. It’s summer, time to play. The look of joy when someone goes upside down – a position most haven’t been in since a youngster. The joy of yoga is reconnecting with your youth.
Have a wonderful day
