This week I have been deeply rewarded by conducting interviews of pilgrims from the Portland area before and after they walk the Camino de Santiago. It’s touching to hear what inspired them to walk and then hear about challenges, insights and what they learned, upon their return. I look forward to sharing their stories via blogs posts and a video in a few months once I’ve complied all the interviews.
Now, let’s look at some of my Friday favorites from this week that I think you might enjoy:
- Favorite stretch is a basic squat to strengthen the quads and allow a nice stretch of the pelvis. Here is a photo of a man in India, where squatting is common way to sit when there is no seat. I like to end my yoga routine by doing a few minutes of squatting. When was the last time you held this position?
- Favorite raw recipe is Cucumber Apple Green Gazpacho from Love & Lemons. This is a fun twist on an old favorite and once again allows us to let the stove and oven rest.
- Favorite Portland vegan food trip highlights blog post is brought to us by the clever and creative Ann Mai at PlantCrush.
- Favorite quote is below.
