Bee Yoga Fusion Supports Local Community

Bee Yoga Fusion has adopted a highway in our community of Greenbelt, MD. Edmonston Road between Cherry Wood Lane and Sunnyside Ave. Four times a year a group of volunteers will spend a few hours picking up trash from the side of the road. This is Karma Yoga at work and I am so delighted to share this experience with all of you. Thank you for helping me keep our community litter-free!

Bee Yoga Fusion is delighted to sponsor our local Greenbelt Farmer's Market. Open Sundays May 14th-Nov. 19th.

Bee Yoga Fusion is a proud sponsor of the Greenbelt Nursery School Tortoise and the Hare 5K run.

Each year Bee Yoga Fusion sponsors Rafael's Race 5K, this is a race that is close to Gretchen's heart and she would love to see you running along side her this year. Register here!

Please contact Gretchen directly if your organization would like to have partnership with Bee Yoga Fusion that is in line with our principles of health and wellness.

Eat Vegetarian - For a day!

I know that change can be hard. Change can also be scary, the unfamiliar terrain leaves you feeling hopeless or on edge. But the way that we can expand our consciousness and go further into our yoga practice is to change, to shift, to see things from a different perspective. So for one day during this 30 day yoga challenge I'm asking that you eat vegetarian or vegan.

Just one day.

Some might assume I have this block on the BINGO card because I am a vegetarian and some how want to convert you to my way of eating. That's actually so far from the truth. I eat meat. I enjoy eating meat. I tried being a vegetarian for many, many years and it didn't work for my body. That being said it does work for a lot of people.

I want you to get in touch with your food. To think beyond your normal and experience it in a different, new way. And also to expand your consciousness of what a meal could look like, the meal doesn't have to have meat in order for you to consume a protein. There are some really great alternatives that are plant based proteins that you could try every once in a while.

Here is a very tasty recipe that is also super simple and easy to get on the table for dinner on a weeknight. This recipe serves 3-4 people. (I've included links for ease, I do not get anything from you purchasing it from Amazon.) 

Ramon Noodles, 1 pack per person. 
Path of Life All Natural Garbanzos and Lentils, 10 oz (Frozen) 
1 cup fresh broccoli, chopped
Shelled Edamame frozen bag
Extra Firm Tofu
small bunch of cilantro, chopped

Begin by cutting the tofu in half, we will only use half of the block. Cut the tofu into small 1/2 inch cubes. Place the tofu, half of the edamame bag and the chopped broccoli in a skillet with oil to saute, stir occasionally and then cover. It won't take long for these items to be done so stay nearby. Once the tofu is slightly browned add the cilantro and the Path of Life frozen packet to the skillet, stir and cover. If you'd like to add additional spices now would be the time. The Path of Life packet is seasoned but I personally added pepper and onion powder, just because.  

Boil water to cook the ramon noodles. We are only going to use the noddles so go ahead and throw that spice packet that it comes with in the trash. Cook the noodles until they are soft to taste. Drain but leave a small amount of hot water in the pot so that it looks more like a soup.

Scoop out noodles and place in the bowls, pour some of the hot water into each bowl. Scoop out the veggies from the skillet and place directly on top of the noodles in each bowl.
Dinner is served!
