My Kind of Saturday and Signing Up for Yoga Teacher Training!

Happy Saturday!  Today has been a my kind of Saturday so far.  Not to mention that I just took the first step in signing up for yoga teacher training….application sent!

I started my morning with a fantastic Yoga session at Yogapata.  It was pretty cold here in Connecticut when I woke up to drive there…


I honestly don’t remember the last time it was this cold!!  But because we just had snow this week, I can’t help at smile at how beautiful it is.  I pulled into Yogapata’s parking lot, and the sun rise was beautiful.  Of course I had to snap a picture…and Instagram it, obviously.


After a great class I made a stop at Starbucks.  My sister got me this travel mug from there for Christmas.  Now this mug isn’t any mug, it came with a free coffee every single day of January!  How cool is that?  After my free coffee stop, I headed home and had some breakfast.  My leftover Bacon and Broccoli frittata.  It hit the spot!

Sbucks Mug

Oh and before breakfast, I decided to do one more head stand.  The sun coming in to my living room made for a pretty cool picture.  Yes, I am becoming one of those yogi’s who posts yoga pose pictures on Instagram.  And I am sure it’s only going to get worse…oh well!


After my breakfast I sat down with my computer and finished my Yoga Teacher Training application!!  I’ve been working on it for a couple of weeks.  It asked some pretty thought-provoking, deep questions so I wanted to take my time with it.  I finished it and sent it in!  I am so, so excited for this next chapter of my life.  I’ll write a post about my decision to take this leap soon.

For my afternoon snack I made my first shake with my Oster MyBlend that I got for Christmas!  It came out yummy!

Strawberry Almond and Coconut Shake


  • 1 cup of frozen strawberries
  • 1 cup of coconut milk
  • 2 tbsp of Justin’s Almond Butter

Put all ingredients in blender, and ta da! A yummy, delicious, healthy shake.  Well that was easy.

Hope everyone has a great weekend.

What’s the idea of your perfect Saturday?

New Year, New Recipes – Bacon Broccoli Frittata

Happy New Year!  I can’t believe it is two thousand and FOURTEEN!  That just seems crazy to me because it makes me feel like I am getting old.  I remember one of my first New Years Eve’s spent with friends was in 7th grade for Y2K.  Remember that? Y2K, when everyone thought the world might end.

So I’ve always been all about setting goals for the New Year.  Ya know, starting the first day of the year refreshed, motivated, empowered and all of that.  Well this year I am delaying this whole process a few days.  I am going to spend the weekend home, with some time to myself, getting things sorted, and detoxing a bit.  And while I am excited to do this I almost feel guilty that I didn’t have all of these feelings and motivation on January 1st.  That’s silly right?

One thing I did do on January 1st was buy a new cook book (I’ll post about that later).  So being inspired by lots of different recipes I decided to come up with my own!  As you know I typically eat my go-to omelet for dinner 3-4 nights a week. Well….I decided it’s a New Year, so new recipes are a must.  Yes I only, changed two ingredients and the way it’s cooked but it still counts.

Bacon Broccoli Frittata


**Disclaimer: This recipe is one of those, do what feels right, in terms of measurements. 


  • 3-4 Slices of Bacon
  • 1/2 Yellow Onion
  • 3-4 Broccoli Crowns Chopped into Florets (the way they come in the store with an elastic around the stalks)
  • 8 Eggs (whisked)
  • Salt
  • Pepper
  • Garlic Powder

Pre-heat your oven to 375 degrees.  Once your broccoli is cut up, steam it so they are cooked and soft.  I did this in the microwave by adding 3 tablespoons of water and broccoli to a covered bowl.  I microwaved them for 2 minutes and they came out perfect.

While the broccoli is in the microwave start cooking your bacon in a pan over medium heat for about 7-8 minutes.  When the bacon is cooked to your liking remove from the pan.  Add your chopped onion to the pan with the bacon fat.  Saute the onions until they become clear about 3- 5 minutes.  Add the broccoli to the pan and turn the burner to low and mix around.

While the broccoli and onions are over low heat, beat your 8 eggs in a bowl and cut your cooked bacon into smaller pieces.  Add half the eggs to an oiled pan, then add the broccoli and onions.  Finally, add the rest of the eggs and bacon on top.  Cook in the oven for 20-25 minutes or until frittata is firm.


I think I need to work on making my recipe instructions less wordy!  Any suggestions or tips?
