Today's Meatless Monday recipe is a beautiful and simple Quinoa Salad with Shaved Brussel Sprouts from Katherine Martinelli.  This an ideal recipe to make a big batch at the beginning of the week and eat daily for lunch, snack or dinner.

I don't have a full Meatless Monday review today as my writing has kept me busy and given me the opportunity to explore vastly different topics keeping me both entertained and challenged.

At Families in the Loop, recently featured on Today, I wrote about when to draw the line with the potty jokes.  Or am I the only one with kids who think nothing is funnier than the word poop?  Read the full article here.

Yoga perfectly balances out the toilet talking chaos at my home.

There is so much I love about this photo.

I shared the Top 5 Books Every Yogi Should Read over at Do You Yoga.  This was difficult as there are an abundance of old and new books on the topic of yoga. I enjoyed going back through my bookshelf rereading and being reminded how complex and detailed yoga really is. Find out which five books I narrow down as must reads here.
