  • Meatless Monday: Spring Arugula Salad

    Meatless Monday: Spring Arugula Salad

    Anyone who says salads are unexciting has never tasted arugula. When the leaves are small, they pack a hefty, savory punch; when they get bigger their peppery flavor can be downright spicy. I’m not sure how arugula grows elsewhere, but in my garden it’s always the first of my salad greens to be ripe for picking. It’s also the first to bolt, which it does quite suddenly.

    Because I usually have an abundance…continue reading

  • The Wisdom of Humility in Yoga Practice

    Humility in Yoga Practice

    “A deep sense of humility will help you learn yoga. It is important to remember that no one path or school has a monopoly on the truth. There are excellent and poor practitioners in all schools of yoga.

    “Gaining maturity in yoga practice involves learning to respect the paths that other people are on and acknowledging their merits, maybe even acknowledging that your own path is lacking in some area where another one ex…continue reading

  • Can Yoga Help Us Overcome Fear?

    Can Yoga Help Us Overcome Fear?

    I’m not sure when I realized this, but yoga has helped me to overcome many fears—fear of being seen, speaking in front of groups, trying new things. Fear stopped me from moving ahead. I have used and can use my practice to move through just about anything. Insidious as it sounds, the benefits of a daily yoga practice have a way of sneaking up on you.

    Of course, for humans, fear has kept us alive historically and …continue reading

  • Meatless Monday: Roasted Fresh Asparagus

    Meatless Monday: Roasted Fresh Asparagus

    We’re in that magical time of year when fresh asparagus is in season, and it’s not too hot to use your oven. Today’s recipe takes full advantage of this.

    Most of the recipes I’ve posted in the Meatless Monday column have been one-dish meals, or at least recipes that need little else to complement them. Today’s recipe is, instead, the epitome of simplicity. It is a simple side dish with only a few i…continue reading

  • Humane Society of Utah

    Humane Society of Utah: A Safe Haven for Animal Friends

    Many years ago, I went looking for one of my outdoor, community cats who had disappeared. I checked out both the county’s facility and the Humane Society of Utah (HSU). Both places were housing large numbers of adoptable cats in the standard square kennels, stacked one upon the other. (I did find my feral cat, in a back room reserved for “special needs” kitties.)

    My recent visit to the H…continue reading

  • Meatless Monday: Kale Salad #2

    Raw Tuscan Kale Salad for Meatless Monday

    Last week’s Meatless Monday column touted raw kale and what a great base ingredient it is for a hearty salad. As a kale lover for decades, I’ve been really happy to witness its recent popularity, including throughout the yoga community. As a lover of cookbooks and recipes, I’m also grateful that kale is being featured in so many more creative recipes than it was in the past.

    Over the summer, I’ll be…continue reading

  • Eyebags Put the “Ahhhh” in Savasana

    Cobalt Eyebag
    How to Choose the Best Eyebags for Your Practice

    Savasana is yoga’s most important asana. It is the time when your body and mind integrate the benefits of your practice. My teacher, Pujari, says that Savasana is the time when you “collect the karma of your practice.” Over my decades of practice, I’ve realized that the most helpful way to facilitate the process of integration is to do as little as possible. The more open, rela…continue reading

  • Meatless Monday: Kale Salad

    Red Russian Kale
    Kale Salad for Meatless Monday

    After decades of growing and consuming lots of kale, I’m so happy to see this vitamin- and mineral-packed leafy green finally getting its due. For many years I bore ridicule from people who had never—and would never—touch kale if their lives depended on it. Now you see it everywhere, not only in its more traditional forms—steamed or sautéed in a side dish—but in more mainstream fare such a…continue reading

  • The Power of Yoga

    The Power of Yoga - On and Off the Mat

    At times I’m in awe of how the simple act of lifting my hips in Downward Dog, or resting my forehead on the mat in Child’s Pose, can make a difference in my life.

    Each time that I step onto my mat, the poses help me become more fully aware in each moment. I notice how I enter or leave a pose, how muscles tighten or expand, how my breath flows, how I no longer fear results (well, I try not to fear results) …continue reading

  • Celebrate Earth Day - Eating Sustainably

    Eating Sustainably Every Day

    Earth Day is coming up. We like to celebrate Earth Week by honoring our beautiful planet throughout the week—and throughout the year. Earth Week is a great time to ponder how each of us can lessen our impact and help our planet flourish. Since eating is our most vital and essential form of consumption, we’d like to offer a few tips for eating sustainably.

    Most Mondays, we promote meatless cuisine by posting a favori…continue reading
