Yogurt and Yoga

Two great tastes that taste great together. 

My favorite yoga workout over time has been Yoga Zone’s “Power Yoga for Strength and Endurance.”  It’s easy enough that I can get into most of it no matter what shape I’m in, but challenging enough that I always get something out of it: I’ve done this off and on for ten years, and it’s never been too easy. 

It runs nearly an hour, but if I don’t have that much time (or energy), the first half stands by itself pretty naturally. 

I also like the variety in this routine–I’ve done a lot of different yoga tapes, and this one makes about the best use of the time, with the most interesting formula of poses.

Speaking of this yoga tape, my decade-old tape started wearing out recently.  Lo and behold, this very program is now streaming on Hulu–available free any time! 

 After yoga, I try to pack in some healthy protein, in the form of yogurt.  Lots of people like to add sliced fruit to yogurt, and so do I (frozen blueberries make just about everything better–snacks, meals, motor oil), but I find that yogurt’s an easy cover for another healthy item–granola.  I get big tubs of generic yogurt from Wal Mart, and these bags of granola.  This brand isn’t too dry to start with, but mixing it into the yogurt really makes it go down sweetly. 

Banana or strawberry yogurt with some of this Bear Naked vanilla almond granola, after a Yoga Zone video, strikes me as time pretty well spent.

  1. So, which is it, with the motor oil spiked with frozen blueberries? Do you drink it or put in your crankcase? In the former case, it should be a pretty powerful laxative, in the latter, well, your car mechanic will get some work to do. And with the unemployment where it is, that can’t be all bad. :D
