Cooking with Sig!

My husband is an amazing cook and loves getting creative in the kitchen. I have been the reliable day to day cook which can be kind of boring.  I’m currently in the middle of a plant based nutrition course and have suddenly become incredibly inspired!   This is a picture of a recipe I like from Julie Montagu’s Super Foods cookbook.  It takes about 45 minutes to make and is not only delicious, it’s  incredibly filling.

Mung Bean, Sweet Potato and Pomegranate Casserole. I’d say it’s more like a stew than a casserole, but the bottom line is, it’s yummy and my whole family loved it.

If you’d like the recipe, pm me and I’ll send it to you!

Cheers,

Sig

 

 

Yoga For Low Back Pain

Over the past weekend I attended a two-day seminar with the amazing Robin Monro.  He is one of the leading experts in the U.K. on how to treat lower back pain (LBP) with yoga and has pioneered a new way to help  teachers along with their students to assess LBP via his website.  It was interesting to learn about how back pain is treated by the medical community and how  little research has been done to show how yoga can help.

We covered  the many different types of back pain, how to asses the differences through a variety of tests and how to teach specific poses to help strengthen and eventually heal some of these injuries.  Twelve hours over two days wasn’t enough, but it has definitely started me on an interesting path with further study to come.  If you have lower back problems and are interested in how yoga can help, please send me an email.   There is so much we can do to help and I’m excited to share my knowledge! Robin MonroI’m just hoping when and if I’m Robin’s age that I’ll still sitting on the floor showing poses and teaching cool stuff like him.  What an absolute inspiration!

Cheers!
