Anonymous asked: I see a lot of truvia packets in your pictures. I've always wanted to try it. Is it expensive? And is it located in normal grocery stores?
Truvia? I’ve never even had that before haha. I only use sugar in the raw. Yeah I’m sure you can find it in normal groceries stores and it’s a few bucks for a box I think.
Anonymous asked: Is there any yoga for beginner books that you recommend?
Hmmm. The only one I have read is Beth Shaw’s Yogafit book. If you go to Barnes and Noble in the health/fitness section, there’s sooo many yoga books to choose from and there’s one that will give you a daily practice kind of thing, too.

I figured it wasn’t real. It just looks cool.
Anonymous asked: i really appreciate your blog... i visit it almost everyday x) i just wish you would post more!
Thank youuuuu! (: I don’t like to post a ton because I like to try and focus more on the posts that I really like rather than just filling my blog because it relates. I go back into my blog to find things and that would be hard with a bunch of random stuff, you know?

Anonymous asked: hey i work at a tea emporium & i'm not trying to be rude or anything i just wanted to tell you that adding milk/even mylks to tea kills the antioxidants because the proteins clash with the tea if that makes sense. i just wanted to tell you because i saw you said you were drinking it for the health benefit. i hated tea when i first started drinking it without additives, but now my body & mind love it and crave it! you've just got to get past the first stage :)
Hey! No worries, love. Aw that sounds like a cool job. Really? Huh. That’s pretty interesting, I never knew that. Thanks for telling me! Though I’m not only drinking it for the health benefits, that’s definitely a hugeee plus and good reason to try my hardest to enjoy all the different kinds while having it plain. I think if I am ever able to stop drinking it with milk, I’ll still prefer it cause I like to have my tea cookies in it :3 I’m such a sweet tooth haha. But I definitely want to be able to drink tea plain and warm when I’m not feeling well, either maybe a cough, sore throat, stomach ache, etc. And tea will be perfect in the winter since I don’t drink coffee, I can still enjoy a hot drink (: Agh drinking it without milk will be so much more convenient when I’m out near a coffee/tea place, too. This is so hard lol. I compare it to drinking black coffee cause I had to have a lottttt of french vanilla coffee mate in my coffee when I used to drink it or else it was too coffee-y haha. I think I’ll ease myself into it by putting less and less milk and agave syrup in it. (: Oh gosh excuse me being a talker tonight… I mean in general hah.
Anonymous asked: why are you forcing yourself to drink tea? lol, if you don't like it don't drink it
I’m not forcing myself. I couldn’t force myself to, and I’d never try to force myself to eat/drink something I didn’t like. I started drinking that gross Brisk tea when I was like 12 so I was used to iced and heavily sweetened tea so I was just never used to warm or plain tea. Tea has many benefits and there are so many flavors and I just wanted to get into it, ya know, without having to have it the way I did. So I had to find a way to enjoy it. So I add almond milk and raw sugar and agave syrup and I enjoy it and all of the wonderful flavors and benefits that it comes in/with. I like it way more than I ever liked iced tea with a million packets of sweet n low. Actually I never even drank that much, cause it didn’t appeal to me. I did drink Arizona sometimes but I like making my own tea a lot more.
Anonymous asked: I just bought a whey protein powder, but i'm not sure if its really good for me and how should i consume it. I do power vinyasa 5 days a week. any advise? is it good to support the diet with supplements?
Add it to smoothies or milkshakes. Not sure what kind you got. It should tell you on the side how to make it, as well. That’s great, I’m sure you’ll progress fast in your practice that way! I’m not entirely sure what you mean by that last question, though. I’d say it depends on what you take, as far as supplements go. Unless you were talking about the protein powder?
Anonymous asked: Do you like Yogi tea? I was thinking of buying the Mayan Coco Spice. It looks tasty :)
I’ve only tried Peach detox so far, actually. I’ve been wanting to try that one, though. It does look good (: I’ll try to remember it next time I come across Yogi tea!
Anonymous asked: is a gallon of water too much or too little to drink in a day (for someone who is trying to lose weight?)
To me that seems like too much, especially if you’re not doing a lot of exercise. I think you shouldn’t focus so much on that. Just drink plenty of water (but don’t focus on drinking an entire gallon) and focus on what you’re eating and physically doing.
Anonymous asked: inversions are okay (I'm the anon). Thats what I looks for, but where can I start?
You could start on forearm stands. That seems like a good one to start with because it’s a bit easier with balance and doesn’t require as much strength as on the hands only. And from there you could start practicing scorpion.
Anonymous asked: best yoga poses to increase flexibility? and some challenging yoga poses for who want to get out of the "beginner category"? pleaseee.
There’s a lot of poses that you can do to increase flexibility in so many different places of your body. I used to do poses from this video to gain flexibility in my hamstrings and calves. The laying pose with the scarf I did daily. Camel pose is my favorite for back flexibility. Here’s a video on opening your shoulders and gaining flexibility there. Here’s a list that I made for opening your hips.
Beginner category… Hm. I’m not entirely sure where exactly you’re at or how to answer this since there are so many different ways I could go with this. Like you could be looking for poses with more flexibility or that are a lot more difficult, like inversions. Or you’re just looking for a more regular practice. I think maybe go on youtube and go through some Tara Stiles videos and find which one’s you enjoy most and what poses that you really like! Sorry I couldn’t help you more here (:
Anonymous asked: Which is your yoga routine?
Right now I don’t have one and am trying to work on that. What I used to do is practice daily in the morning for 30 minutes to an hour on my own, no videos. I also took a yoga class for a semester in college and that was two days a week.
Anonymous asked: That is exactly what I mean! Thanks. =D Are there certain benefits to doing one form over the other?
Great! You’re welcome (: I think the one that you’re looking to do requires more balance and strength, but I’m really not too sure.
