Green Goddess Night

Whenever I am stressed, I whipped up for salads and curry rice, Green Goddess! Here, looking more than a condiment as I smother the curry dish with this green goddess because its just soooooo yummy ! Can’t help myself …

Here’s a quick recipe:

  • 2-3 c fresh cilantro
  • 1-3 garlic cloves
  • 1 lime squeezed juice – about 1/4 c
  • 1 lemon squeezed juice 1/3 c-ish
  • 2-3 teaspoons maple syrup, honey or agave syrup (test for your preference)
  • ½ t ground coriander
  • ½ t sea salt

In food processor just whirl the above and drizzle

  • ½ c extra-virgin olive oil

as you keep whirling until the consistency is smooth. Do not over process.

It’s pretty tasty as a salad dressing above – BUT make them creamy to go with curry or any spicy dishes – SO refreshing !

Creaminess may be achieved by adding the following:

1 avocado


½ cup plain Greek yogurt (whole milk is creamier but low fat tastes fine)


Miyoko’s cream cheese is lovely too


Rumi’s Hand-crafted Miso

Itadakimasu !


Sooo grateful to be gifted a handcrafted Miso by Rumi … it’s been fermented and aged for one whole year ! Wow – So thrilled, it’s so precious! So delicous with such deep flavors … hahhhh

So I had to make the Japanese breakfast, the monk-style, enjoying every morsel in the sun-lit kitchen.

Gassho … so grateful … joy, joy, joy:)


Election Day jitters anxiety … stress

I am moved by some of these artists and yoga teachers who are shining their light in this dark times … today, there’s Mariko Hirakawa’s Visionary Yoga class “Yoga for Calm” at 6:30pm EST hailing from New York. If you are freed up, this would be helpful. It appears to be donation of min. $2 so that’s affordable !

There was Scott Blossom’s Yoga for Fortitude this moring at 7am PST, recording to which is supposed to become available soon – also a good practice today.

Then there are children playing in the streets as they should in the outdoors while joggers and bikers zips by without masks shedding whatever they shed into the ether around us… It’s Vata season and they exacerbate it. While I try not to be a paranoid COPD, was it Andy Grove who wrote “Only the Parnoid Survive”?

Take care of yourself everyone … you can’t shine your light if you extinguish … keep refueling and avoid those winds that whips by with no regard to public health. Stay calm be yoga.
