Lotsa Fun In May, Looking Forward to Being Busy in June
Posted Jun 01 2010 12:00am
A few things I discovered (or remembered) this month… I’m addicted to quinoa flakes (with cocoa powder, sliced banana, cinnamon & Barney Butter all the way from Florida…)
On the subject of breakfast…protein in the morning helps keep me full (scrambled tofu with spinach, onion and mushrooms) Raw vegan brownies make me very happy I’ve been performing and auditioning a lot more lately including an 80’s themed show last Sunday, "Cabaret for a Cause" with the lovely Lindsay coming up on Friday and a Fringe show (!!) in July – (see the Facebook page for more details until it’s up on the Fringe site). I’m going to be writing a blog post later in the week about how my pie of life has changed drastically as of late with all this performing… and how ridiculously happy I am as a result.
One last thing that makes me happy? People named Ashley (other than me!) and dressing up. Top hats and corsets should always be required in life. Speaking of Ashley… We’re planning a yoga class on Sunday (12:00 - east end Toronto location - $10 suggested donation) in support of the Heel’n’Wheel-a-thon ! Digestive health is vital to our health and well being. Approximately 70% of our nervous system is attached to our stomach, small intestines and colon, so when our GI tract is not functioning at optimal level, we are out of balance. Inspired by the theme of The Crohn’s and Colitis Foundation, we will explore the balance of our bodies inside and out, with a 1 hour yoga class open to all levels. It will focus on, you guessed it...our tummies! Through the practice of yoga, we can learn to not only strengthen and tone our mid-sections, but through breathing techniques and a series of specific postures, we can help to calm the nervous system and promote proper digestion and detoxification! You will radiate from the inside out!
