Yoga and Vegetable Soup
October 28, 2009
As I’ve said before I haaate the fall and winter. I don’t do col by any stretch of the imagination. If I had to find something I liked about those two seasons the only thing I could possibly come up with is soup, chilli and a cup of hot tea every morning (and even those aren’t enough to make me run screaming as soon as the temperature drops below 75).
At least one morning a week I spend chopping up vegetables and scouring the house for chicken broth (which was no where to be found today) putting together some sort of random soup. I don’t even use recipes with either my soup or chilli, I just go with the flow. throw in whatever happens to be laying around. Today just happened to be a onion-garlic-celery-potato-carrot-corn-green beans-and chicken tortellini type of day. Deeelish. I try to always have some leftovers in the fridge. On days when I’m eating at home or at the office I usually get a total of absolutely no vegetables and soups and chillis are a tasty way to get those.
I started doing yoga about a year and a half ago or so. The place where I was staying at the time had a woman come in once a week and give yoga classes. My group of course would act silly and annoy the heck out of our teacher by constantly falling over or breaking out in laughter during her weird “meditation” tapes. But I did manage to develop a love for it. One of my little secrets is that I would love to become a yoga teacher someday. I can’t afford classes right now, but one day…
