25 Feb A Banana Bread That’s Healthy Enough To Eat For Breakfast
Eating well is not that complicated plus it can have a positive impact on your everyday life. However, it can be tough because temptation and distraction are all around us.
The focus and awareness you bring to your yoga practice can help here. As a result of tapping into some of the disciplines that you learn on that mat like mindfulness, you can start using this when eating. Eating with mindfulness is a great practice as it allows you to really taste every bite, focus and be grateful for what you’re eating. And it can also mean that you don’t overeat.
Incorporating fresh, organic produce will give your body the tools it needs to heal and nourish itself. Need some recipe inspiration to get started? We have teamed up with food expert and dietician, Emily Hardman, where she will share a new recipe every month. You’re welcome!
