Recipe: poached eggs with greens

I realized last week I hadn't had greens in over a month.  Green Smoothies rule the summer but its cold now.  Salads, meh. They just take so long to make and eat!  This is a great recipe to get your greens through the winter.

I 100% stole this from Life Alive in Salem, MA.  I don't know exactly how they make it there but this is my interpretation of it.

Ingredients :

1/2-1c baby kale or baby spinach

1/2c broccoli, lightly steamed (I steam a bunch ahead of time)

cheddar cheese

2 eggs

Soft wrap/tortilla

Bragg's Liquid Aminos

Directions:

Poach the eggs (This link is a good guide, only thing I do different is bring the water to boil first then turn off heat and add the eggs, let eggs cook covered 5 minutes) http://www.foodnetwork.com/recipes/alton-brown/perfect-poached-eggs-recipe.html

While the eggs are cooking, sauté the green and broccoli in a bit of oil of your choosing and a squirt of Braggs.

Cheesify the wrap, top with greens mixture and eggs, S & P the eggs and enjoy!



Another Blogger! Yay!

Just what the world needs, another blogger! 

I hope that what I write will be a fresh and welcome offering, a way to share a little more about my worldview and things I love.  I generally keep my verbiage in the studio to a minimum.  I'm much more comfortable talking about asana than conveying some grand life lesson .  Its something I'm aware of and I think someday I will be able to expertly weave tidbits of delicious wisdom into class like so many of my favorite teachers do.  So I'm using this blog as a platform, for now.

Speaking of delicious tidbits, here is my very own cookie recipe, tweaked until just perfect.  We've named them, "THE Cookies".  Recipe is below. Enjoy!

THE COOKIES

2 c flour, scant (I use 1c white, 1c white whole wheat)
1/2 c brown sugar
1/2 c turbinado sugar
1/2 c sugar (organic sugars make a big difference when baking)
1 tsp corse sea salt
1 tsp baking soda
-mix dries-
2 eggs
1 stick melted butter
1 c peanut butter
1 tsp vanilla
-combine until dough forms-
Add chocolate chips to you hearts desire (and PB chips if you like!)

Dough will be crumbly but should hold together when formed into cookies. Add more PB if it's too dry.

Bake 375 8-12 minutes.
