Finish each day and be done with it. You have done what you could. Some blunders and absurdities have crept in; forget them as soon as you can. Tomorrow is a new day. You shall begin it serenely and with too high a spirit to be encumbered with your old nonsense.

Fruit tacos with chocolate tortillas

by Kris Mullen

Ingredients:

  • 1 cup whole wheat flour
  • 3 cups all-purpose flour
  • 1 teaspoon baking powder
  • 1/4 teaspoon salt
  • 1/3 cup cocoa powder
  • 1/3 cup coconut oil
  • 4 tablespoons agave nectar
  • 1-1/2 cups warm water
  • 1 small papaya
  • 1 mango
  • 1/2 cup blueberries
  • 1 cup strawberries
  • 2 kiwis
  • Juice from one lime

Directions:

In a large bowl combine the all-purpose flour, whole wheat flour, baking powder, salt and cocoa powder. Whisk all the ingredients to combine.

Add coconut oil, agave nectar and warm water to the bowl of dry ingredients.


Mix the ingredients together with a wooden spoon until a large ball of dough forms.


Transfer the ball of dough to a floured work surface and knead the dough for five minutes, adding additional flour if the dough becomes too sticky to handle.

Cut the ball of dough in half and roll both pieces back into a ball. Continue to cut the balls of dough in half until you have 16 even pieces. Let the dough rest for 10 minutes.


Transfer one ball of dough to a floured work surface and roll the dough into a circle that is one- quarter inch thick and about five inches in diameter.

Heat a cast-iron skillet over medium heat. Do not add oil to the pan because the tortillas need to be cooked on a dry surface. Once the skillet is hot, add the rolled out dough and cook for 30 seconds.


Flip the tortilla and cook for an additional 30 seconds. Repeat until all of the dough has been used and you have 16 cooked tortillas. Transfer the tortillas to a plate lined with a damp paper towel.


Wash all the fruit for the fruit salad. Measure blueberries, chop strawberries, peel and dice kiwis, dice mango, remove the seeds from papaya and peel the skin. Dice the papaya into bite-sized pieces and place all of the fruit in a dish. Drizzle the fruit with the juice of the lime. 


To serve, place one chocolate tortilla on a serving plate.


Add a handful of blueberries, several pieces of diced kiwi, a few pieces of chopped mango, several pieces of diced papaya and a handful of strawberries to the center of one chocolate tortilla.


Top the fruit with additional toppings of your choice. Chocolate sauce, shredded coconut, fresh mint and honey all work wonderfully.

Yoga for Stiff Neck & Shoulders! (Full write-up on sassy-yogi.com!)

It has been ages since I have posted a yoga guide, and today’s guide is something that I have been doing almost every day since I started a desk job! As we spend long hours at our desk and computer, we tend to place a lot of tension in our neck, shoulder, and lower back.

Some of the poses that you can do to relieve the tension in your back and shoulders include: cow face pose, seated spinal twist, puppy stretch, thread the needle pose, seated side stretch, passive standing forward fold, downward facing dog, bridge pose, reclining spinal twist, and ending it off with a good ol’ shoulder stretch!

Full write-up of the different poses can be found in my brand new post on sassy-yogi.com, so be sure to check it out and comment if you have any other poses that you always do to relieve that ache in your neck!

Some things to note:

  1. Remember to breathe - inhalation to straighten your spine, exhalation to relax and deepen your stretch
  2. This is a relaxation sequence so please remember not to push yourself too hard! That can lead too additional stress in your shoulders and back instead.
  3. Feel free to stay in these poses for as long as you like, generally around 5 to 10 long and deep breaths per pose would be a good gauge <:

Have fun with this sequence, and let me know how it works for you! Namaste <3
