in meals

Hey meals & moves readers!

  • my name: Karin
  • where i live: I live in the gorgeous “city” of Bern in Switzerland and yes, all I do is eat cheese and chocolate and explore the mountains. Or something like that.  :)
  • my blog: Give Me Bananas

Cheers to Janetha for letting me write this guest post (though, technically, everyone can write a guest post.. –Duh- I just thought that saying thanks would be nice. ;)). I bet she’s getting all tanned while most of us are stuck with winter. Well at least I am. Sigh.

Anyway, I’m pretty excited to read about everyone’s meals and moves and without further ado.. here are mine.

  • my move: My all time favourite move is Jivamukti Yoga so I’ll ramble about it a bit, ok? I know, I know, you now probably think “oh dear. Not an other yoga fan!!!” but I honestly don’t know what else to think of. And why not write about my ultimate favourite move? So here I go..

    The founders of Jivamukti Yoga – Sharon Gannon and David Life

    When I started doing yoga I decided to go the safe way and do some hatha yoga. I didn’t know which yoga style suited me best (there are more than 200 after all!) and I didn’t know what to do. Alas I did what everyone else was doing. Iyengar and hatha are pretty big over here but after 1 year of hatha yoga I felt like I was missing something. Like crazy asanas for example. But not only that. I wanted it all – challenging asanas, pranayama, meditation and chanting – but I thought that it’s impossible to “get it all”… Until I went to a yoga weekend got to know Jivamukti. I was blown away. I was in a complete state of bliss (ok, writing that makes it sound idiotic but it really was like that J). I was happy to find out that classes were offered in my city as well. These days I go to Jivamukti 1-3 times a week (depends on work. Sigh.) and LOVE it. The classes are physically and mentally challenging and sometimes leave me feeling like I could cry and laugh at the same time (that’s what handstand practice does to me). Plus I often have sore muscles in places I didn’t know muscles existed. J

    Anyway, give it a try if you’re looking for some challenging yoga!

  • my meal: Well I am a huge foodie (as, I guess, you too) and it’s pretty hard to pick one meal that’s a favourite of mine. The other day I made a fab dish for my boyfriend which made him say that he loves tofu (!!!!). Imagine that! A guy who says he likes tofu! I instantly knew that this meal would be good enough for this post.
    The dish that I made is kind of a staple in my household. It’s super simple and ready in about 10 minutes.
  • All you need is:

    • carrots
    • spinach
    • tofu (cubed)
    • cooked brown rice
    • onion (optional)
    • olive oil
    • teriyaki sauce


    That’s all. With these ingredients you’ll get a (tam tam tam…..) VEGGIE TERIYAKI STIR-FRY! You can find the instructions for the meal here.

    To be honest, I almost wrote about a brownies recipe but then I had to remind myself that this wasn’t really a meal. (But on the other hand, I could happily eat brownies for lunch. I mean.. if I really had to of course. ;) )

Alright, that’s all I think. I should probably send this to Janetha asap because it’s already 11:30 PM on Jan 31 .. (I have a problem with deadlines. Thank god I’m not at school anymore!!)

Feel free to visit my blog for more rant about yoga, running, brownies, banana, tea, oh and yeah.. cheese and chocolate. And yodeling. Kidding. ;)

Talk to you soon and have a great day!

I have never heard of Jivamukti, sounds amazing! I will need to look for classes in my area, I am already a big fan of Kundalini & Ashtanga.

And my boyf likes tofu, too! Who woulda thunk it???

I haven’t heard of that type of yoga either!! And sore in muscles you didn’t know existed is always a good thing!

Well I haven’t met a yoga I didn’t like- so I’m digging this post. (Wait I’m not a huge fan of bikram) but anyhow LOVE this post Karin!
