Hello Local Yogis,
I’m planning snack boxes for our upcoming yoga book club workshop! You know that I, hungryphil/wobblyogi am super excited about combining my two loves: food and yoga.
Summer is Pitta season. According to Ayurvedic tradition, summer is the time to enjoy bitter, astringent and sweet tastes (eat less sour, pungent or spicy foods). So, I’m looking for tasty afternoon bites that would be cool and light. Please sign up for the workshop ahead of time so I know how many snack boxes to make. Here is more information about the workshop [Saturday, August 12, 2-4].
Let’s try these treats together………………….
Baked light and flaky pastry filo- dough filled with potato and cauliflower spiced with summer Pitta-seasoning (includes warm sweet spices like fennel and coriander)
Sweet Coconut Dusted Raisin Almond Balls
Almonds and raisins ground together and rolled in shredded coconut
Cooling Co-Cu-Mint Mocktail
A blend of coconut water, cucumber, mint, and lemon
If you read “May I be Happy” by Cindy Lee, wonderful! Jacqueline will lead an extended asana practice inspired by themes from the book that will be familiar to you. If you haven’t read the book, you’ll enjoy the practice focused on cultivating personal happiness, just as much. The book is not a prerequisite, only an inspiration to ask: How may I be happy?
And, there will be snacks!!! I don’t know about you but that makes me happy 🙂
Hope to see you in a few weeks,
Wishing you a lovely late summer,
the hungry and wobbly yogi
