Resolutions, intentions, rituals… whatever you call them, if you keep them simple you’ll rock them in.
Last year I committed to going to yoga once a week for the entire year. And I did it! Here I am in Mexico, 12 months later, on a yoga retreat doing 4 hours of yoga per day… Who would have thought?
This year, I’m taking the Meatless Monday challenge of going vegetarian one day per week. As I like to push things a little further, my aim is to make it a raw vegan day (which also means black coffee for the day – the toughest part). The inspiration? Helping out the environment and getting more creative with vegan recipes. I’ll post the best on this blog.
Here’s the first one for 2012 – Raw Avocado and Cilantro Soup. It’s a preview recipe for my sold-out 6-week detox and clean eating program starting on 9th Jan.
The recipe is for 2 servings. Make up both as it’s so delicious you’ll want to eat it as your next meal. Don’t be fearful of the avocado. 1/2 an avocado is only 160 calories and it will keep you satiated for hours as well as supply an abundance of Vitamin E and skin beautifying phytonutrients.Photo Credit: www.mynewroots.com
