I don't know if I'm still in vacation mode, or if it's the heat making me so lazy lately but I feel like I have been slacking on eating healthily as I ought to be.
This morning G and I met up with his friend John to see his new apartment (he just moved to Brooklyn from Long Island) and go to a yoga class. This was my first time doing yoga outside my own home!
Fueled up with gluten-free toast with almond butter and banana
Breakfast was at 9:45ish and the class was at 12 and this seemed like a fine amount of food/coffee to get through the class. It was 90 minutes long and I sweeeeaaaated but it felt great. We went to Yoga to the People, which is by donation, and I really want to go back soon. I wasn't super hungry after the class but we were near Champs Jr (in Greenpoint - smaller than the original Champs in Williamsburg) so we decided to head over there.
Despite it being prime brunch time we were able to get three seats at the counter. The whole place fits maybe 9 people, so we were lucky. Maybe since it's so small (and near McCarren park) they just get a lot of to-go orders.
Picked up some groceries on the way home, showered, and made a salad after guzzling a ton of lemon water.
Anyway, this SALAD is how I wish I were eating more often. Higher raw, more greens, less processed. And I think I have the yoga class to thank for that. After sweating and pushing my body to feel better, why would I want to wreck that with gross food? So hopefully I'll be going to more classes and eating better and sweating the rest of the summer, but, like, in a good way. It's also probably a good thing for me to just not sit in my house afraid of people all the time. Couldn't hurt, right?
