stretching, juicing, and wrapping

Morning! How did you start your Friday? Mine began with some 100-degree yoga. _DSC0049I’ve been checking out Hot Yoga of East Nashville this week.hot_yoga_east_nashville_IMG_4055I still have a week left of classes in the intro pack, so I’ll be back later with a full recap!

In other news, I have some random food to share because it’s Friday and I finally uploaded all my photos from the week. Would you like some juice?carrot_apple_celery_juice_DSC0036I’ve been juicing up a storm lately. It’s up there as one of my favorite post-run eats/drinks (along with beer, ice cream, pizza, and pretty much anything edible).carrot_apple_celery_juice_DSC0041

I’ve been trying out some pretty crazy juice combinations (kale, grape, mint, and carrot, anyone?) — some of which were gross, and some of which were delicious. This apple-celery-carrot is definitely my favorite thus far! I’ll write down the “recipe” below, but it’s pretty versatile — so feel free to throw in anything you like.carrot_apple_celery_juice_DSC0031Zesty carrot-apple-celery juice (makes one big glass of juice)

  • 5 carrots
  • 1 apple
  • 5 stalks of celery
  • 1/2 a lemon
  • 1 inch of ginger

carrot_apple_celery_juice_DSC0045Maybe I just like this juice because it’s so pretty? Some of my more random combinations have turned out a pukish green color, which doesn’t photograph quite so well…

Onto lunch. After I saw Leah’s white bean and avocado wraps, I knew I had to give them a go. (paper towels make great “dishes” when you are too lazy to use an actual dish FYI)_DSC0001These were good, and so easy to make! Sort of like hummus, but with a mild taste. Plus some nice crunch thanks to the coleslaw._DSC0002And that’s a WRAP! _DSC0004See you from Asheville!

  • Yoga: hot or not hot?
  • Asheville recommendations?!
  • Locals: do you belong to a gym/studio in town? Which one?

  1. I highly recommend the Laughing Seed cafe in Asheville! Good, high quiality, organic vegetarian fare! My meat-loving dad approved :)

  2. I’ve been really wanting to check out Hot Yoga! I look forward to hearing how you like it! Also, I would like 1 juice please.

    I’m very jealous that you’re going to Asheville!! It’s SO pretty. Have fun!

  3. I keep forgetting that you’re living in my hometown!! Yay for hot yoga! I’ve only done it twice now, and it’s only been mid 90’s for both, so I’m anxious to try one that’s SUPER hot and see what it’s like!
