Happy Saturday Bloggie Friends! How has your weekend been going? Mine has been off to a great start. I went to yoga this morning as part of my teacher training program. I’ve been a teacher since 2001 but am currently pursing the highest level of yoga certification. I’ve mentioned this info before, but what’s exciting now is that my graduation is next weekend!! Meaning, I will have my 500 Hours and can register with Yoga Alliance at the highest level! If anyone missed my mega Yoga FAQ Post this week and you’re curious what this means or what you should be looking for in a teacher, I covered it there.
I also previously mentioned that over the weekend I am doing a 2 Hour Live Cooking Demonstration and Q & A Session with Yoga Students and other teachers whom are in Teacher Training program, too. As soon as I hit publish, I am off to give my Raw Foods Cooking Class and Presentation! Thanks again everyone for telling me if you were attending, what topics you’d like to hear about, that helped to focus and center me soo much!
It’s my tradition based on everyone’s positive response about these recap posts to recap the previous week’s highlights from foods to events, so without further ado, here we go. If you missed Last Week’s Recap, Check that Out Here.

I was looking through my nut butter stash, and realized I had some odd-n-ends to use up.
Enter this Recipe!
Peanut Butter SoftServe:
1 Frozen Banana (freeze it in 1-2 inch chunks)
1 Tbsp Peanut Butter (or whatever nut butter you like)
Optional: 1 Tsp Agave (or honey, maple syrup, yacon syrup)
Optional: 1 Tsp Vanilla or Hazelnut Extract
Blend & Devour! (feel free to double, triple, quad the recipe!)

In the Meantime:
“Don’t seek for love. Seek to find and remove the barriers you’ve built against love.” -Rumi
Have Your Tried Making Softserve? What are your favorite things to put in it if you’ve tried it? Or do you just stick with frozen bananas?
Did You Watch the Olympics? What’s your favorite Sport?
If you had to choose, would you rather be an amazing athlete who is famous and makes tons of money from endorsements and never has to work again in your life, but you hit your prime by your late 20’s and you don’t necessarily “help others”…
Or, would you rather be wickedly smart and not necessarily make much money, but your brainpower and your intelligence lasts a lifetime, and actually intensifies as you age, and you help others with your knowledge and information throughout your lifetime?
I pick the second option. But I have to say, being a professional athlete and being financially set for life does sound kinda nice! But life isn’t about the money always, now is it! What do you think?
Stay Tuned For Alcoholic Balls (TWSS!) and They Are Amazing…….
