Broccoli Lentil Herb Salad

After making the mushroom and walnut lettuce cups as an appetizer for my friends dinner party on Tuesday, I had an abundance of left over herbs and veggies to use before leaving for the big apple (I’m flying back to New York today for the second half of my yoga training with Dharma Mittra!) I can not wait to see all of my fellow trainees and to be in Dharma’s presence once again. You can expect a full report upon my return on the 21st. As side note, I’ll be in NY in training on my birthday, Nov. 17th so this year I am accepting all forms of gifts including digital birthday cards, virtual hugs and loving thoughts!

Until then, I leave you with this AWESOME recipe for a quick and delicious salad that is warming and comforting in this chilly fall weather:

Ingredients:

  • 1 Tbs fresh thyme

About Caley Alyssa

As a D-1 collegiate athlete with a background in nutrition and anatomy, and an internship with a naturopathic center for healing, I found myself wanting to help people achieve healthier, happier lives. I quickly came to realize that I wanted to work with preventative therapeutic methods promoting active, energetic lifestyles rather then focusing on treatment centered around prescription drugs and the increasingly paramount “band-aid” mindset. In 2006, I moved to San Francisco and began to study yoga completing a 200 hour training with Yoga Tree. From there I've studied with Shiva Rea and obtained a certification to work with children and at risk youth. In 2010, my quest to bring health and happiness to others lead me to enroll with the Institute of Integrative Nutrition in New York to become a holistic health coach. Currently, I live in LA and am training with Dharma Mittra to obtain my 500 hour yoga certification. I love to share my lifelong journey of finding balance, wellness and happiness in all aspects of life!
