As a part of my Creative Arts in the Healing Journey class, we are supposed to flex our creative muscle once every day. I just spent 25 minutes practicing Authentic Movement in my apartment. We used this quite often in my under grad dance classes. I start my session by lying on the floor and taking a scan of my body. Eventually I began moving. The movement evolved very organically and didn’t look like “dance.” I was playing with the concept of folding and unfolding, both in the physical and metaphorical sense. After I was done, I did a bit of journaling to reflect. It was really nice. First step in honoring my intuition and being creative.
Today was Vegan Thursday!
Breakfast – 1 small orange, 1/2 a frozen banana, 1 packet Vanilla Spiru-tein, 1/2 cup Unsweetened Vanilla Almond Breeze, and 4 ice cubes. Topped with Nature’s Path Flax Flakes.
Lunch – Whole Foods Fiber Pita filled with Holy Land Deli Jalapeno Humus, cucumber, red pepper and spinach. It has been too long since I’ve enjoyed some Holy Land Deli humus. If you can find brand near you, buy it now! The consistency is perfect.
Dinner – I was loving the pita and humus at lunch and was craving more at dinner. I sautéed broccoli, a medium carrot, red pepper, a portabella and some broccoli slaw. Topped things off with a generous blob of humus and half a pita.
Am enjoying a little tea and Thursday night television while I blog. I love Thursday night tv. The Parks and Rec, Office, and 30 Rock combo is perfection :)
