A review of RD Kara Lydon’s new e-book, Nourish Your Namaste.
I’m so excited to share this book review with y’all today! Nourish Your Namaste is an e-book by my friend Kara Lydon, who is a registered dietitian nutritionist and yoga instructor who I’ve been lucky to be able to connect with through blogging. I fell in love with her yummy recipes and gorgeous photos as soon as I found her blog, and I love her philosophy on non-restrictive healthy eating, mindfulness and nourishment of the body and spirit. She shares her passion for yoga and food in her newest e-book, Nourish Your Namaste.
I was super excited to read Kara’s book because her recipes are amazing, of course, but I also love yoga as a means of stretching, working my muscles, and relaxing my mind. As a certified yogi, Kara walks you through yoga as a means of relaxation, gaining energy, and improving digestion with yoga poses to support each. She also dives deeper beyond the physical poses into ayurveda and what it means to nourish your body by listening to it and how to eat for what is going on with you (hint: you don’t have to be a vegetarian). I really enjoyed the explanation of poses with how-to’s since I’ve recently moved away from my yoga studio. It’s been a great resource for practicing yoga at home with a little guidance.
And of course, the foodie dietitian shares some amazing recipes with specific ingredients for relaxation, energy and digestion. I made the Lemon Lavender Oat Scones from her Recipes For Relaxation section, and they were amazing! Not only are her recipes healthy and easy to make, but they are also all so delicious! You can find this recipe, along with others like her Kimchi Huevos Rancheros, Pumpkin Lentil Quinoa Chili, and Sweet Potato Smoothie in Nourish Your Namaste. So much yum!
