A simple dandelion salad!
I imagine dandelion greens tossed in hemp oil, black pepper and orange zest, topped with sprouted seeds would be a nice combination. :)
hi :) may i ask where you bought spirulina?
A local shop called LifeSource in Salem, Oregon but I’m sure you can find a quality version at any old Whole Foods/co-op/health food store.
as soon as i saw your "sweet broccoli crunch" post, i knew i that i had to have it. i just made it for dinner, and it was absolutely delicious & so easy to prepare. thank you for dinner! i absolutely cannot wait for your cookbook to come out :)
That’s so great! I’m really glad you enjoyed it :)
Cows have always been my favorite… Yes, I’d have to say cows win my heart 100% of the time.
I'll try anything. Three random picks? :)
1. Bonnie “Prince” Billy
2. The Dead Weather
3. Fleetwood Mac
What I’ve listened to so far today :)
Where do you come from and what can you see out of your window? What's the best thing about your town?
Portland, Oregon. Lavender bushes. Hometown? Everything. Current town (Salem)? Idk yet, I’m still trying to figure that out… :/
Music, some favorites for me to try?
Oh man, way too many to say. Got a favorite genre? I could give you some recommendations from there :)
If you could be any character in a movie who would you be and why
Probably O-Ren Ishii from Kill Bill because… Why not? She’s awesome.
Where’d you get that idea, lol?
I don’t not like it. It’s tasty and extremely versatile… I’ve simply found my body feels and functions best when I’m eating low/no grains. Seitan is made using 100% wheat gluten so I tend to only eat it on special occasions and in small amounts.
Hey Elizabeth I started following you here on tumblr like a year ago and from there went on to follow your other social networks because you are an inspiration. i know you have a busy schedule and all like we all do, but my question is at any time will you start to make more videos to post to youtube for yoga? That way your follower that would love to do beginner yoga with you can. Reading Light on Yoga was amazing revelation but to practice some of those things with you and other would be great
First of all, thank you so much for your support!
Secondly, posting more frequent/thorough yoga videos has been a high priority project on my list for quite some time. The past few months have been crazy and emotional for me (lost my home, moved from my hometown, lost my grandmother to cancer, etc.) so I haven’t really had much energy to put in to creative projects at all lately… The upside to all this is I’ve experienced so much growth throughout this painful period of tribulation and stress; I feel more grounded and centered in my life’s purpose which will only lead to good things for me, I believe. :)
All this is to say: Thank you. YES. I’m working on it. xx
Hi :) Should the heels be touching the floor when doing the downward-facing dog? I have been doing yoga for quite a while now but I still can't do it properly... I'm short (5'0) and was wondering if this could be the reason? lol Thanks hon c: x
Not required at all, thank goodness!
I’m being a lazybutt so rather than diving in to this topic I’ll leave you with a link instead: http://yoga.about.com/od/askauntyoga/f/downdogheels.htm
Good luck, ladybird! xx
Hi! First, I just wanted to say that you are a big inspiration for me and your tumblr brings me so much happiness! As a yoga teacher, do you have any Youtube videos/teachers that you would recommend? I'm living abroad and I don't have access to yoga classes, so I'm trying to find a good Youtube channel or podcast or something of that sort to guide my practice :)
Hey! Thank you!
Here’s a few resources I dig:
And also search “Rodney Yee” via YouTube, he’s pretty cool…
To be honest I don’t use YouTube all that much! I’m working to change that though, hopefully soon I can set aside a chunk of time to record and share some sequences myself. Any YouTube yoga recommendations, folks? Send ‘em my way and I’ll get a better list going soon. :)
Wow your studio sounds like it's going to be AMAZING. Wish I was there to come along! Good luck with it all! <3
Thank you! Everything is still very much in the budding stages but I’m excited! Wish you could partake as well, maybe it’s time for a visit? ;)
I was wondering if you have any homemade lip balms recipes.
I don’t, actually. I drink a good deal of water and massage my lips with coconut oil twice a day which is usually enough to keep my lips soft and flake-free. When I feel like I need a little extra protection (before a long bike ride or when I’m planning to be out in the cold for a while) I really dig this orange hemp lip balm made by The Merry Hempsters which, to my knowledge, can be found at most Whole Foods and co-op grocers for a few bucks. :)
Oh and by the way, when are you getting started on that cookbook?! I'm growing anxious.
I’ve been working on it for quite some time but can’t really go any farther at the moment due to a lack of financing.
I’m in the process of setting up a fund raising account (Kickstarter!) to help purchase a new camera, initial self publishing costs and possibly a notebook computer if I can raise enough; one can’t really make a cookbook on an iPhone, unfortunately, so my options are currently pretty limited, haha.
*side note* I really don’t think most people appreciate the time and effort it takes to self publish a book, especially a cookbook! The cover, every page, every recipe, photo, tip and minor detail are my responsibility to layout, design, draft, proof, etc… I won’t publish anything until it meets my standards. :)
