This is a power packed lunch for a hard-core yogi!! Easy to make, filling to the tummy, and blissful to the soul. The right combination of food is key after an intense yoga workout to help build, fuel, and repair every cell in our body.

Ayurveda, tells us that what we eat is not only important for our physical health, but that the subtle energies in every food we consume have a direct relation to our emotions and mental wellbeing. This Quinoa Pilaf is my favorite post-yoga dish. It’s a treat to the taste buds, provides the right kind of carbs and protein to fuel my stretched muscles, is full of good-for-you Omega 3 fats that keeps my energy up and my stomach satisfied, and is rich in fiber to aid in regular and healthy elimination.

I am excited to share with you, that this recipe of mine is posted on Sunwarrior .  Please get the  recipe on their website. Enjoy and Namaste!!
