Tonight for dinner I made a tofu feast!
I found the best Ayurvedic cooking blog here. I have scrolled through all of Fran’s recipes now and they all sound sooo delicious. Her blog also has a lot of great information on eating according to your dosha type and different variations you can take on recipes to make it more friendly to you. I have had my eye on this Sesame Encrusted Tofu for about two weeks now and am so glad I finally got around to making it! It was one of those things where I bought the tofu a while back, was planning on making it and then realized I was out of ginger…then out of tamari….so FINALLY today at work I picked up some tamari so I could make it!
I also made some beets because I LOVE them and some quinoa to round out the meal
Some people have expressed the interest in learning how to actually cook a beet rather than buying them canned (YUCK!!). T cook these beets all I did was chop off the long leafy steam, wash the beet and then simmer them in water for 1 1/2 hours with the top of the pot on halfway. After an hour and a half, drain the beets, let them cool and then gently peel them under cold running water. The peel will slide off easily.
It was a very yummy and filling dinner. I actually got so full that I couldn’t finish all my tofu! Must have been the beet 😉
As for yoga—it was AWESOME. I love Dave Farmar. He is hysterical! This afternoon I listened to one of his 90 minute power yoga podcasts (search Dave Farmar on itunes) and it was just great. Powerful and fluid….its a great leg workout with all those warriors, eagles and half moons. Savasana felt like heaven. 🙂
I usually do not eat dessert or anything after dinner on the weekdays just because I go to bed SO early and I don’t like to go to bed feeling full. However, my mama bought these amazing cookies from Greenwise today and I just couldn’t help myself…..
Yummy. Enough said.
Its time for laundry, bath and bed for this sleepy girl. Have a lovely night and I’ll see you tomorrow!
ps—Polly had the wonderful idea of reading 1 Corinthians during the month of February.
Here is a verse that really stuck with me this evening:
“No eye has seen,
No ear has heard,
no mind has conceived
What God has prepared for those who love Him.” 1 cor. 9
