It's probably no surprise to hear me say that I love to cook. It's one of my favorite things to do. I love reading cookbooks and food blogs. I love creating new recipes or recreating someone else's recipes. I love food shopping, watching cooking shows, eating, talking about food...the list goes on.
I also love PIZZA. And when I say that I love pizza, I mean that it's real true love.
In fact, for a very long time, if anyone asked me what my favorite food was, I would always say pizza (yes, this is an answer I gave as an adult). My explanation would always be, "because almost everything tastes great on pizza!" And when you think about it, it's true.
I learned how true my theory of "almost everything tastes great on pizza" actually was when I decided to explore a vegan lifestyle. No more cheese??? But how could pizza possibly still taste good?
If you have been following my blog, you have probably noticed that I have developed a real LOVE (or obsession) with Ashtanga Yoga. Ashtanga has changed the way I practice yoga, and as a result, has changed my life. My intuition was screaming at me to explore this love for Asthanga, so I did, and earlier this month, I completed a 40 hour Ashtanga Yoga Teacher Training with David Swenson.
If you have no idea who David Swenson is, please do yourself a favor and google him. He is an internationally known, incredibly intelligent yoga teacher, and is one of the first American students to practice Ashtanga Yoga. His teacher was the the one and only, Shri K. Pattabhi Jois.
