When you first found out that lean protein builds muscle and keeps you in goodhealth, you probably thought skinless chicken breast was the best thing foryou. Me, too. Well, my days of weight lifting and cardio on the hamster wheel, aka the treadmill,while mindlessly watching CNN are long gone. So are my old ways of shopping theway the tv commercials tell me to. Meat is not 'what's for dinner' at theFewel household anymore. (Thanks to Netflix for putting "Forks overKnives" in my queue, so I just can't ignore where my food comes from anylonger.) Everyone needs protein to build healthy cells. Your muscles, organs, and immune systemare made up of mostly protein. And eating less meat, whether an ethical or personalchoice, means you have to find tasty protein sources elsewhere.After 8 years of eating meat, I recently made the switch back to eating vegetarian.My husband, Jeff, went totally vegan. I agree with the yogi masses that whetheror not one is vegetarian is a personal matter, but as BKS Iyengar wrote in"Light on Yoga", one of the greatest books ever written on thesubject of yoga, "in course of time, the practicioner of yoga has to adopt avegetarian diet, in order to attain one-pointed attention and spiritualevolution...But merely because a man is a vegetarian, it does not necessarilyfollow that he is non-violent by temperament or that he is a yogi, though avegetarian diet is a necessity for the practice of yoga."So, whether or not you are vegetarian, there are excellent sources of plant-basedproteins to keep your cells healthy and keep you headed in the right directiontowards a plant-based diet. Here are my top four accessible and tastyvegetarian sources of protein available at Trader Joes, Sprouts, and otherhealth food stores in our area.1. Quinoa (pronounced "keen-wah")- 11g protein/cup. This is a good highprotein grain replacement for rice or pasta as a bed for steamed vegetables orsauces. As a breakfast, it has a similar consistency to oatmeal topped withalmond milk and berries. Yum!2. Tempeh- 24g protein/4 oz. A soy-based food great as a burger (think heathycheeseburger here) on a squishy, whole grain bun with all the fixins. Tempehcan also be balled up like a meatball and put in a spaghetti sauce or servedover brown rice and vegetables. 3. Black beans, kidney beans, or pinto beans- 12g protein/cup. Best soaked andslow cooked at home, but canned is okay, too. Put these in your warm chili orsoup or served cold over a green, multi-veg salad for some color and texture.Get this great vegetarian chili recipe here. 4. Non-dairy "milk"- 7g/cup. Cows milk is for baby cows and is not goodfor the digestive tract of humans. Plainly, it makes me bloated. Forothers, it can cause systemic inflamation with countless allergic responses. Ifyou clear your mind of what "milk" is supposed to taste like, almondor rice milk is an excellent replacement for cereal, tea, or for drinkingalone.Notice I didn't mention tofu? :) Happy Meatless Monday to you!KristenP.S.

The coolness of a city is often determined by the quantity (and quality) of its art galleries, tattoo shops, retro clothing boutiques, and, yes, yoga studios. Where I live in Yorba Linda, California happens to have, um, none of those except a couple of notable yoga studios at both ends of the city. And this is a relatively new thing. Yoga is now popping up in the suburban sprawl of north Orange County and I'm a proud co-founder of one of them- Full Circle Yoga. This north Orange County area is rapt with youth sports, after school programs, and education, which is wonderful. Education, in general, is wonderful. But it seems that once parents settle down and have kids, they have long forgotten about their own personal growth, their inner child, their playful, creative, and artsy self. They attend PTA and team meetings, Back to School Night, and awards ceremonies, busy, busy-- all for their kids. Many of them used to do cool things to enrich their own lives, but seem to have lost themselves along the way. Having children ARE the greatest creations of our lives, but shouldn't we find time to be ourselves as separate from our children? To grow and learn and be at peace in our own skin? Sacrificing yourself until the children are grown will generate a lifetime of bodily disrepair and dis-ease. We CAN take care of ourselves and the family at the same time. This is what the yoga culture is about-- not waiting until "one day", but taking care of ourselves in EACH day. Because no manicure or hairstyle can cover up years of bodily and spiritual neglect. Yoga is fitness. Yoga is a discipline. Yoga is also a means to discovering what you're made of and facing it head on, undeterred. Yoga is not at the gym. It's in smaller, quieter places so you can feel what's real. Yoga is part of the family. Yoga is a part of healthy cultures and we're happy to have it here in north Orange County. Come visit us.
