Yoga, Turkey Tacos, and Yoga Journal
Hi, if you are interested in yoga and eating a healthy, easy to cook lunch, you might like this post. If not, don’t read it 🙂 The first photo is a personal yoga goal I have been working on. It is a version of Scorpion. I use the wall for support, and because I am scared to death not to. The other day I balanced without my feet on the wall for like 5 seconds (as shown in the picture), excited! I am still working on it, I know I can do better. Do you have a yoga pose you have been dreaming of mastering?
The second photo is lunch today! Easy to prepare and healthy to eat. I used lean ground turkey (browned before put in the crock pot), 1 can black beans (drained), 1 can diced tomatoes with green chiles (<3) and 1 packet of taco seasoning mix. I dumped everything in the crock pot and mixed together. I cooked it on high for 3 hours. The husband made tacos with a hard whole grain shell. I am having mine over a fresh bed of nutrient rich spinach with a little taco sauce and a tiny bit of cheese on top. Looking forward to lunch today. Try a taco salad without the shell to save some calories 🙂
Click on the link above and you will see one of my favorite poses that I include in my classes. It has many benefits. It strengthens and stretches the legs, stretches the hips and spine, opens the chest to improve breathing, relieves mild back pain, stimulates the abdominal organs and improves sense of balance. I love the Yoga Journal website. I click around on it often finding interesting articles and new information all the time. I am always learning new things about yoga and fitness. There is always something and someone else I can learn from. Have you done yoga recently? What is your favorite pose to stretch the legs? I look forward to my class tonight which will include revolved triangle pose.
