I’ve made a lot of variations of vegan tofu scrambles in my time, but this one is hands down my favorite. It’s incredibly tasty with fantastic texture, and is super healthy for you to boot. It’s also easy and quick to make. Can’t argue with that!
This scramble is super low fat since it’s cooked using no oil at all, not even when frying. All of the ingredients are extremely low fat. In fact, most of the fat in the dish comes from the low fat tofu! Continue reading →
First and foremost, I want my yoga wear to be made from cotton. It’s okay if it’s a few percent Lycra or Spandex to keep its shape, but for me the fabric has to be mostly cotton. I prefer cotton because it breathes, it’s natural, and it feels good against my skin.
The cost of yoga mats can vary quite a bit. The price is usually related to the materials, the quality of craftsmanship, and country of manufacture. But there are a number of inexpensive yoga mats out there that just might suit your needs.

For obvious reasons, it’s really important to keep your yoga mat clean. Different mats have different washing instructions. Some you can throw right in the wash, and some you need to wash thoroughly by hand in a large sink or tub. Either way, if you do yoga frequently, you’re going to need to wash your mat frequently.

In part one of my review of Richard Hittleman’s Yoga 28 Day Exercise Plan, I covered the first two weeks of the plan. I gave an overview of how the book’s daily routines are presented. For part two, I’ll go over how Hittleman ramps it up a notch. I’ll also sum up a few of his “thoughts for the day”, which are his daily discussions on the many ways Hatha Yoga can benefit the mind and body.
Regarding the exercise portion of the plan, Hittleman takes it up a level for the remaining two weeks. Day 15 starts off with these words, “Today marks the beginning Continue reading →
It occurred to me last night that cooking can be very meditative. Cleaning can as well… especially if someone else if doing it! No, seriously, both can be. You just need to have the right mindset and get into the flow of it, and it won’t seem like work at all. The same philosophy can be applied to many things.
Anyhow, I hope everyone had a Happy Thanksgiving. I’m thankful that I was able to snag an extra slice of vegan pumpkin cheesecake!
It’s a great way to clear the head while at the same time getting in some physical activity. Some might not consider it pure meditation, but I find it to be quite beneficial when I just can’t seem to sit still. And I’m getting the added health benefits of a walk outdoors!
