I’ve spent most of February not in New York; I flew to San Francisco, Sydney, Noosa (my hometown) then to Miami. Suffice to say, I was feeling a little jet-lagged, a little weary and a little toxic.
I needed greens! But not a green juice, something warming and grounding.
The antidote; Asian greens tossed with sesame seeds. Asian greens are intensely rich in magnesium and Vitamin C which help to rebalance the circadian rhythm and banish jet-lag. Sesame seeds (and oil) are nourishing and calming, particularly to the Ayurvedic dosha, vata, which the beautiful Nadya Andreeva from www.spinachandyoga.com asserted I was. She was also the reason I was in Miami – some R&R, yoga and future collaborations – watch this space!
The perfect protein to pair with the Asian greens: Two organic eggs lightly fried in coconut oil and tossed with the anti-inflammatory herb, turmeric. This I took from the Miami weekend too – delicious!
Here’s pic of Nadya and I doing some morning yoga. I’ll post more on the retreat later this week – seven amazing women doing things you should know about.
