Day Trip to Yogaville in Buckingham, Virginia
Yogaville is only a three hour drive away, so I’ll have plenty of time to get there before check in at 4:00. I’m a little apprehensive about what I will do about staying on my 90 Day Program, so I’m glad it turned out that I’m only staying over night this time. Here’s what I ate on Day 13 of my 90 Day challenge …
I’ve done a good job this week of using what I have in my kitchen and not letting anything go to waste. I decided to have my last serving of the Veggie Frittata, smothered in Hatch Valley Green Chili Sauce for breakfast. I really wasn’t very hungry this morning, so I actually didn’t finish the last few bites. If you’d like a copy of the recipe, follow this link for my Veggie Frittata Recipe.
Okay, the Macro-Nutrients. Do you remember where they are in this meal? Protein: 4 Egg Whites per serving; Fats: Egg Yolk; Carbohydrate: Potatoes, veggies, salsa. Yum!!!
I made certain I had time before lunch before I hit the road to Yogaville. I used the last of my mason jar chicken salads, adding a fist full of grapes and some walnuts to make it complete. I know some salad greens would have been nice, but I just wanted the basics this time so I could get on the road!
Macro-Nutrients? Protein: Chicken; Fats: Primal Kitchen’s Avocado Mayonnaise & Walnuts; Carbohydrate: Grapes
I arrived at Yogaville in plenty of time to check in and get situated in time for a 4:00 Yoga Nidra(Deep Guided Relaxation). Dinner was shortly after, and I was very pleased to find out that I would not starve! 😉 Everything was very clearly labeled, including the salad dressings. I couldn’t eat the vegan “main course” but there was a salad buffet with every sort of imaginable vegetable and garnish! I made myself a heaping plate and found a salad dressing made with the right oils and no sweeteners. Everything was beautiful, especially the Yogaville Farm heirloom tomatoes!
Where are the Macro Nutrients in this meal? Protein … Hmmmm … no significant source of protein in this meal; Fat: Salad dressing; Carbohydrates: All those delicious vegetables!
After dinner they had Satsung, which included some Kirtan singing & chanting, some talking, and a play about Hanuman done by a children’s yoga group camp that comes to Yogaville every year.
Not too surprisingly, I was hungry again before my day ended. So for my fourth meal, I ate an RxBar that I’d discretely packed in my suitcase. (RxBars have egg white in them and eggs are not allowed in Yogaville.) I made sure no one saw me eat it and I didn’t even leave the wrapper in their trash, but packed it away to take home with me.
