vegenista I did it! Lead my first mini yoga class to my fellow students & teachers on the bay. I got out of my own way, pushed through my walls, believed in myself & followed my heart. Finally, I am free!! 6d

vegenista It's been a busy day in the kitchen today as I've been "bulk cooking" in preparation for the final intensive weekend of my yoga teacher training! This pic is of an absolutely amazing recipe for "Eggplant & Fresh Herb Tabbouleh" from @clotildenet's "French Market Cookbook." I used quinoa in place of the couscous to keep it GF. It's dressed with the most flavorful lemon-tahini-Harissa sauce. This will be the perfect lunch for my long weekend. Look for a review of the cookbook coming soon to the blog! #vegan #vegenistaskitchen 7d

vegenista Trying to make up for my donut indulgence with a massaged kale salad for lunch! Kale massaged with roasted garlic olive oil, tahini, lemon juice & a pinch of sea salt. Then tossed with yellow pepper, red onion & grape tomatoes. #vegan 7d
  •   vegenista Oohh & avocado too!! 7d
  •   jamileighcarswell @@vegenista Hi! In your opinion, what ingredient have you found to be the best to cut the bitter taste of raw kale? I want to incorporate kale salads into my diet, but putting together a kale salad that tastes yummy is so daunting to me for some reason! 7d
  •   vegenista @jamileighcarswell dress it will & then massage, massage, massage!!! The more time you spend breaking it down with your hands, the softer & less bitter it becomes! 7d
  •   jamileighcarswell @vegenista thank you! 7d

vegenista Got up bright & early for Sunrise Yoga...only to make it 1/2 way down the block & realize I had a flat tire. Grateful for the AAA guy that came to my rescue & that @darkhorsecoffee, serving @veganxdonuts is a few steps away from the tire shop! A pour over & toasted coconut donut makes this mishap morning suck less! #vegan #veganfoodshare 1w
