Blogging as Jogging for Memory – Smoothie and Pinwheel appetizers

Blogging as Jogging for Memory

Pre Shri Yoga breakfast should be light enough to withstand downward dogs, forward bends and spinal twists, while giving one enough fuel to endure. A little fruit, chia, hemp and ground flax seeds blended into a smoothie with ice, milk and unsweetened, organic, pure cranberry juice. So, when time takes its toll and my memory slips further I’ll be happy to slurp on this any old-time.

Party Time!!!
Goat Cheese, Egg, Tuna

Chipotle Hummous

As for the wrap pinwheel appetizers, four varieties were prepared :
  1. Chopped Egg: hard-boiled eggsjust cooked with bright yellow yolks, finely chopped green onions, a dollop of Dijon, some olive oil mayonnaise, salt & pepper, wrapped in Smart whole grain tortillas with a handful of organic arugula.
  2. Goat Cheese: Julia’s splendid, tart, black currant jam (last time I used a gourmet chunky fig spread), and arugula.
  3. Tuna Spread: chopped dill, green onions, a dollop of Dijon, olive oil mayonnaise, salt, pepper and finely chopped sweet red pepper.
  4. Chipotle Hummus (Fontaine Santé): shaved carrot strips, sweet red pepper strips, chopped romaine, green onions and finely chopped mint.
….And they were MUCH tastier than your garden variety deli party sandwiches.
Mission accomplished!
  • Thanks to Shri Yoga (click to check their website) for inspiring me to eat light. They’ll have an open house September 23-25 – with several FREE CLASSES.
  • Thanks to everyone who has taken the time to write me. Blogging is just another way of sharing interests. Nice to know what I have in common with whom.
  • Thanks to my brother Eric, Earth Circle Organics for encouraging healthy eating, to my sister Julia Richardson, for being my guiding light in all things food. I call her “Julie & Julia” for obvious reasons.
  • A big thanks to my mom who always fed me right and entertained her heart out.
  • A big thanks to my dad who supplied us with endless beautiful produce and heaps of love.
Wishing everyone unity and peace on the anniversary of 9/11.
