I hope everybody is having an amazing month so far, I cannot believe it is almost over! Joe and I went on a trip up to Albuquerque the first weekend of the month for a Band of Horses concert. It was a great weekend and we stayed with friends who showed us some really awesome spots that we had never been before! It was so much fun and a great start to the month.
I also had the wonderful opportunity to guide a practice at Calhoun Flower Farms for the employees of the farm and it was such a beautiful morning. There are lots of exciting collaborations to look out for soon with these ladies!
This month I also kicked off my yoga classes at my parents house! It has been amazing so far, I love teaching and meeting new people. I'm so grateful to everyone who has come out to a class so far. It warms my heart having so many people show up and support me. It definitely makes me feel like I'm on the right path. I've never felt so comfortable in front of a group of people than when I am guiding a practice. (CLICK HERE TO BOOK A SATURDAY YOGA CLASS!)
More fun news! Yoga with Shay is partnering up with Southwest Salt Room! I will be offering a gentle morning hatha flow class in their space. The first class is April 02, 2019 at 7:00, and you can sign up on their website!
Halotherapy is a holistic, all natural method that mimics the environment of salt caves. Halotherapy can be beneficial for a lot of reasons including asthma, coughs, colds, sinus infections, allergies, acne, eczema, stress, and anxiety. For more info on Halotherapy please visit their website! I am so grateful for so many opportunities in the community and I cannot wait to bring more yoga to Las Cruces.
Let's get down to business though- these veggie tacos are no joke. They are perfect for a busy weeknight or when you need to use the veggies that are about to go bad in the fridge!
Joe and I have been eating a mostly vegetarian diet since last September.. maybe longer! I wanted to slowly transition to a vegetarian diet before going to Yandara so I wouldn't put my body in even more shock (we went through a detox from coffee, sugar, and bread). Lucky for us, both of us are already fairly healthy eaters so going vegetarian was actually really easy for us.
Lately I have been making these delicious roasted veggie tacos with sweet potatoes, cauliflower, and black beans. It is a super simple recipe and you can play around with different variations of veggies and toppings! There are unlimited possibilities here! So here's the breakdown:
V E G G I E . T A C O S.
Total time: 45 minutes
WHAT YOU NEED:
One sweet potato, diced
One head of cauliflower, broken up into bite size pieces
Salt (we like to use Maldon Smoked Sea Salt)
One can of black beans, rinsed (we used black eyed peas here because we didn't have black beans, use what you have!)
Half an onion, diced
2-3 cloves of garlic
Whatever toppings you like!
Preheat oven to 400 degrees fahrenheit, place diced sweet potatoes and cauliflower florets on a large baking sheet. Drizzle with olive oil and season with salt, pepper, and chili pepper to taste. Place in oven and roast veggies for 25-30 minutes or until veggies are nice and crispy.
While the veggies are roasting, heat half a tablespoon of olive oil in a medium pan over medium/high heat. When oil is hot, toss in the diced onions and saute until golden brown. Add garlic and saute until aromatic then add the can of rinsed beans. Saute everything all together until beans are hot.
Warm tortillas over an open flame, flipping with tongs every now and then.
Load your corn tortilla with roasted veggies, the beans and onions, and add whatever toppings your heart desires, we like salsa, cheddar cheese, avocado, cherry tomatoes, and lime! Like I said, there are so many options for delicious veggie tacos just play with your favorite veggies and see what works! Cooking doesn't need to be scary or intimidating!
This meal is vegetarian, gluten free, and can be made vegan/dairy free by not using cheese or using a cheese alternative! Happy cooking!
