Good news - I've finally given FGK its own Instagram handle to separate my personal account and stop annoying my friends with pictures of vegetables. (But everyone should really eat more vegetables.)

I'll be launching this new venture by participating in the next #aimtrue challenge, #nourishwithlove, which is a 10-day instagram challenge started by the very inspirational Kathryn Budig.

The 10-day challenge consists of posting a photo each day with a story corresponding to that day's theme. This particular challenge is asking yogis to combine their love of yoga with their love of good food - right up my alley.

The first theme of the challenge is comfort. Comfort pose, comfort food.

Oddly enough, one of my favorite comfort poses is half pigeon. This pose freaked me out when I first started practicing; I had the tightest hips in the world and I didn't really understand Yin postures or the power of breath. This was the first pose where I learned how to direct breath into specific areas of my body and ultimately find release.

Coupled with comfort food - italian is always going to have it for me.

Lately I've been really into clean pasta with kale, fresh herbs and olive oil. A take on my sauteed spinach with mushrooms, I combine in whole wheat and spelt pasta for a delicious fresh comfort dish. This also uses butter, which is an approved fat in my diet. (real, true butter. None of that margarine garbage.)

Clean Pasta with Kale, Herbs and Olive Oil

  1. Melt 2 tbs butter with olive oil in a saute pan. Add minced garlic, sautee 1 min. Add fresh sliced mushrooms; saute 5-10 minutes. Add 2 tbs more butter.
  2. Add chopped kale (Trader Joe's has pre-chopped bags which are great in a pinch). Saute until wilted, about 5 minutes.
  3. Meanwhile, cook 2-4oz of pasta (I like a combo of whole wheat and spelt). Drain and add to mushroom and kale. Toss to coat.
  4. Season with salt, pepper and herbs of your choice (basil, oregano, etc). Top with freshly shaved parmesan if desired.

  1. Likes significantly boost the recognition of one's internet site and although using the appropriate array rely; loads of folks are likely to be attracted to your account. The firms which offer these providers, will supply you with non-automated or robot likes and supply you with actual buy likes on instagram. The good problem about this would be the simple fact they are often promptly sent toward your account this implies you would not have to attend that a great deal. And if you are a firm, elevating your Instagram likes will probably be advantageous.
