Horseradish Salmon

Well hello there bloggity blog!  Oh how I have missed you.

It's been nothing but downward dogs, lunges, and pigeon poses in my world for the past week.


Breathe!  Soften your face!  Soften your toes!  Where's my whip?

Did you know I have often been referred to as Dominatrix Dee in my yoga classes?   Oh yeah, I can be brutal.  I can make you sweat.  I can make you wish you never came to class.

That is, until it came to the end when you are spoiled rotten in savasana.  Until you turn around to check out your ass in the mirror and you see a yoga butt staring back at you.   Until you feel good getting out of bed in the morning.  Until you realize that your mind isn't racing with thoughts and you're much calmer in stressful situations.

Have you done your yoga today?

On to the food!

I have been trying to include fish in our diets at least once a week.  We are loving it!

This recipe is to. die. for!  It will be making frequent appearances in our house fo sho!

This recipe includes a spinach salad.  I had a picture but apparently my camera didn't want me to have the picture so I'll be showing my camera who's boss today.


High levels of Omega-3's may prompt the body to produce more leptin - the hormone that signals fullness. To eat less food throughout the day, enjoy five ounces of Omega-3-rich fish, like salmon, three times a week.
Maybe I'll be adding it in a couple of more times during our week.

    My mom loves yoga! Forced me to do some when i was a kid. :) Gotta say, what you speak of yoga is true.. Love the salmon too!! Always love salmon!

  8. Yoga is definitely the best way to go when exercising. Also, eating fish once a week is also a good thing! Your salmon plate does look delicious, horseradish does sound very complimentary.

  9. I've been doing yoga for 7 years, but there's no way I could ever get into that pose :) Your salmon looks fabulous...and I could do that for sure!
