Did you yoga today?

Yes, I am using yoga as a verb. As you may or may not know, today is world yoga day! I have no idea what this means, because I only saw it mentionned online somewhere, but yay for yoga!

To celebrate, I went to a yang/yin yoga class this morning taught by my friend Edith. Ok, it was half to celebrate yoga day and half because I went snowboarding yesterday and I fell a lot, so today everything hurts. Also, it was half because I like yoga. And I like Edith. Too many halves, I know, but never too much yoga!

To commemorate this event, I’ve created a little collage of yoga moments. It’s time like these that I’m grateful for all the times I’ve asked friends, family and strangers to take my picture.

After class, Edith and I went out for coffee. We talked about yoga (among other things!), so yay for world yoga day again!

When I got home, I momentarily crashed on the couch and really, really wanted to stay there, but instead baked some tasty gluten free goodies. I like baking muffins and snacks so that I’m not tempted to go out and buy unhealthy things during the week.

I also made this unbelievable curry chicken salad for dinner. I made enough for lunch tomorrow and I’m already looking forward to it!

Oh, and I made more vitamin water. Raspberry cucumber. Delicious!

How did you celebrate yoga day?

Vitamin water

Last week, at work, I noticed that a lot of people were sick. I was worried that I would get sick so I’ve been trying to do everything I can to avoid it. When I was at the grocery store, I saw some vitamin water and thought maybe it would help. Then I thought of all the sugar and other crap they add to it and I decided to make my own.

Citrus has a lot of vitamin c, so I went with lemon, lime and orange.

I covered the slices with water, let it sit in the refrigerator for a while, and voilà! Tasty, citrusy water.

The longer it sits, the more flavour you get. I made it yesterday and it was delicious. Today, it was a little bitter, so I added some honey. Bliss.

I’m thinking raspberry-cucumber next. Do you have any flavour suggestions?
