RE: What did you eat today?
The Korean discussion put me in the mood for the 김치찌개 (kimchi based stew) I mentioned, so I took the kids to a Korean restaurant in Ottawa. Girlfriend is out of town and kids in a restaurant are quite a handful alone, but I got my, fix.

Not neccisarily an "eat" thing, but I'm REEEEALLY craving a pepsi right now. I'm trying to be good with my food/drink to trim up a wee bit....but lack of soda is killing me haha.

Drinking water at the moment.

I hear you, it can be so hard to eat healthy. I try and eat healthy too and follow a sattvic (yogic) diet as best as I can. The problem is, I love my morning lattes (caffeine is a not considered sattvic), spicy food (onions/garlic/harsh spices not sattvic), fried food (tortilla chips, french fries, samosas-if it's fried, it's not sattvic), chocolate cupcakes (chocolate, highly sugary things-not sattvic), and occasional beer or glass of wine (alcohol not sattvic).

I follow the main yogic principle of ahimsa (non-violence, i.e. a vegan diet always) but being a foodie, I do find it hard to eliminate the other foods I love. But I also think that yoga talks about moderation, a balance of sun and moon energies, so in that sense, I feel I can still enjoy these things, just in moderation.

That said, it also says in the Pradipika, that if you practice Maha Mudra, there is nothing injurious to you as this practice destroys the injurious effects of anything you take in. Of course, I'm just using this as a reason to continue to eat my chocolate cupcakes Laugh out load

Anyway, I know you follow yoga too, so thought I'd share my food struggles too. Big Grin Also, I want a chocolate cupcake Hobo

Also here's the Maha Mudra (or Ability to Continue to Eat Chocolate Cupcakes Pose--joking Big Grin)
