Yin and french toast

And so begins day 2 of my yoga challenge.

I did 20 minutes of Yin yoga as soon as I woke up. Those of you not familiar with yoga - Yin yoga is a style of practice that is mellow and restorative and consists of seated poses. 

Afterward, I definitely felt more relaxed and eager to face the day.

I had the last bit of a loaf of bread that I needed to use up. 

French toast with a greek yogurt topping and a sprinkle of cinnamon and maple syrup.

 I put 1 egg, 1 tsp. of milk and a pinch of salt in a shallow bowl and beat together. The bowl was fairly small so I cut one piece of toast into 3 pieces. It was delicious, slightly eggy tasting and I really liked how the greek yogurt was a nice tart contrast to the syrup.

I did have some of the egg mixture left over so I made a very thin crepe that the dogs shared.

I think veggies and fruit will play a heavy roll in my lunch. I am feeling the need for some greens!

I was planning on cleaning up my patio table which at the moment is piled high with books that I have read in the last couple of weeks or so.

I definitely have a reading addiction - I regularly run through 2 - 3 books in a week.  And I am now seeing why people are raving about the kindle just for the reduction it would make in my book collecting would be worth it. 

But it is a rare rainy day here in Silicon Valley so I will have to pick some kind of indoor project to do((

  1. Hey girl, sorry I've been gone (school is kicking my butt!). That french toast looks so good. The greek yogurt and syrup idea is awesome. I don't like syrup plain so I'll have to try it. Thanks :)
