Hey ya’ll How’s your day going? My has been a little strange so far. It started with a recovery Insanity workout (is that an oxymoron? Haha. It really was relaxing though) and a doc’s appt. Nothing like being poked and prodded on a Thursday morning (just a check-up but it wasn’t a party if ya know what I mean).
An almond butter and jelly bfast cookie
I munched it on the way to the doc’s and it was pretty glorious.
-1/2 C oats
-1/2 scoop vanilla Sun Warrior
-1 T mesquite
-1 hefty T almond butter
-1 T polaner spread
I have to share the recipe with you guys for last night’s eggplant curry because it pretty much rocked my face off
Slow Cooker Eggplant Curry
In a slow cooker, sprayed with nonstick spray, add the following:
1 medium eggplant, large diced
1 yellow onion
1 can (14.5oz) organic diced tomatoes, drained
1 C organic vegetable broth
1 bay leaf
1 T curry
1/2 T cumin
1 t garlic
1/2-1 t salt (I used 1/2)
1/4 t cayenne (optional- I like it spicy wicy)
Mix to combine.
Set it (on low).
Forget it (for 4-6 hours).
Serve with brown rice or naan, and feast.

I have lovely leftovers for today Usually I make just enough so that we don’t have leftovers, but in cases like this, the food tastes even better the next day. Did you celebrate Indian food Wednesday??
Well I’m off to do our taxes (procrastinate much?? Haha) and then head to work.
Have a lovely Thursday!
Today’s tip: Take 10 minutes out of your busy day to STRETCH and breath deeply. Stretching is amazing for flexibility and injury prevention and.. it feels sooooo good Every night before going to bed, I foam roll for at least 10 minutes and do a lunar flow or some stretches on the yoga mat. It’s a great way to wind down the day, decreases stress and helps protect the bod. Give it a whirl
