Yoga teachers are a fairly health conscious bunch on the whole and the 216 team is no exception. With a studio of professional chefs and gourmet experimentalists there’s always something delicious being consumed at our weekly meetings, and (predictably) it’s never junk. Here are a few of our favorite things to nibble on…
Kind Bars – High in protein and fibre with only 5 grams of sugar? Kind are the best on-the-go snack bars when you just don’t have the time or inclination to make your own.
Love Grace Juice – Nicole does a mini juice cleanse one day a week through the warmer months. Like that idea but don’t think you could manage a whole day? The Probiotic on Green Smoothies are like a light meal in a bottle.
Avocados – Healthy fats, fibre and a ton of vitamins make avocados a fantastically satiating snack. Sliced and wrapped in seaweed sheets or spooned straight out of the skin with a squeeze of lime – we could eat these berries (yup, you read that right, berries!) all day long.
Jessica’s Roasted Cauliflower:
Pre-heat oven to 375degrees
Cut the cauliflower into meaty bite-size florets, wash, drain, dry. Put in a mixing bowl with 2-3 tablespoons of Pomegranate Molasses (more, if you like it tangy) and 3/4 cup tahini sauce (homemade or from the store)
Stir in the tahini-pomegranate mixture until the cauliflower is well coated.
Lay a piece of parchment paper on a baking tray and spread the cauliflower evenly over it without layering, or they won’t caramelize.
Place in the oven for 30-40 minutes. Let cool and then sprinkle with chopped parsley or cilantro.
Esme’s Green Smoothie:
Blend the following:
– Half an avocado (those guys again)
– A slice of pineapple
– Handful of spinach
– Handful of baby kale
– Snip of parsley
– Glass of filtered water
