Hey Youthful Yogis,
Has this ever happened to you: you've just gotten home from school,soccer practice or maybe a marathon session of Netflix with a friend....and there is nothing good in the house to eat?!
I hate it when that happens!
Or how about this...you are on a camping trip with your parents and the only food they've packed is leftover brussel sprouts and stinky cheese from some dinner party they had five nights ago....
I really hate it when that happens!
You might be wondering why I'm bringing up brussel sprouts and stinky cheese in a yoga blog...let me explain: giving our bodies nutritious food helps us stay happy and strong. It's hard to have enough energy for yoga, or anything else for that matter, if we don't chow down on healthy stuff.
But back to camping....my Youthful Yogi friend Maggie has written a great book called The Real Family Camping Cookbook. It's full of tasty ideas and amazing tips for fixing food while you're out in the woods. And, come to think of it, you don't even need to go camping to whip up some of the meals in her book...paper bag eggs, anyone!?
You can read more about The Real Family Camping Cookbook at www.realfamilytime.com . Also, visit Maggie's blog at realfamilytime.blogspot.com You'll find yummy snack ideas and other fun stuff!
I'd like to stay and chat, Youthful Yogis, but all this talk of food has made me hungry. There's probably something good in my fridge to eat...I just hope the cheese won't be stinky!
Stay healthy and I'll see you soon,
