ORANGES. Not to be forgotten even if AYSO soccer years are long gone. They are a source of vitamin C, hydration, electrolytes, and a natural decongestant, especially the white part in the peel. And they may balance your appetite better than the usual afternoon picker-upper&hellip

My friend Brownie made me a large brownie. Literally. And this is what is left over.
It was delicious, and exactly want I was craving. Carbs? yes. Gluten? yes. Chocolate? yes. Fat? yes. Dairy? yes. And you know what? I feel GREAT.
Morale of the I.AM.YOU. Nourishment story? Eat what you are craving, even if it is &ldquobad,&rdquo, because then you will not be craving any more. And if the &ldquobad&rdquo food is made with REAL ingredients - ie. fresh, whole, non processed and pure ingredients - it really is not that bad for you anyways.
SO - ENJOY. (and if you enjoy too much, pop on an I.AM.YOU. itunes class and sweat it out.

No Practice as the Best Practice
I just got back from my annual holiday at sea, a holiday in every sense of the word. That said, I bring my yoga mat every year with the intention of practicing daily, but every year nature wins. Instead, I swim, tan, swim, laugh, swim, eat, swim, drink, and repeat, all day long, every day. And by nature winning, I mean the sun, the wind, the sea, and ultimately my body – the inside- win.
The thing is, like the changing winds and tides, sometimes you cannot control what goes on around you, or inside you. Sometimes you cannot dictate what your body craves, whether it is a steak, a nap, or in my case, some time off. At first it may aggravate you, then it may confuse you, but ultimately listening to that craving or need will nourish you.
Giving in to my no practice days is one of my best practices, but also one of the hardest. I challenge you to give in, too, and see how it feels, ultimately.
