Things are heating up, and I’m not just talking about the incessant chirping of our bug-eyed neighbors. With temperatures soaring into the 80s and even the 90s, it’s already feeling like it’s officially summer.

In the mood for naturally gluten free dessert with a hint of springtime flavor?
Make this Orange Blossom Rice pudding!
Growing up one of my favorite snacks was rice pudding. Something about it being light and creamy with thick, chewy grains was so satisfying to my 8 year old self.
Today, it’s a snack I rarely indulge in. Yet what is great about this nostalgic treat is that it’s not too light and not too heavy. During the spring months, that’s exactly the kind of dessert you want to enjoy!
We’ve been waiting patiently and spring is finally here!
To celebrate and transition into spring cooking, try this recipe filled with a lot of seasonal produce like spinach, strawberries, mushrooms, asparagus, garlic and onions (1).

Let’s welcome the new year with a recipe that is all about tradition.
Cooking a pot of black-eyed peas to bring good luck in the new year is a well-known tradition in black southern households, steeped in history and good flavors.
Southern style black-eyed peas, sometimes called Hoppin’ John, are traditionally served with rice, and are often paired with some sort of variation of greens (mustard, collard, etc.) for an added side of financial fortune.
It’s officially squash season, so time to enjoy: acorn, butternut, spaghetti, and pumpkin.

I think we can all agree on two things this summer. One, it’s hot and two, we could use some levity.

This month she shares her take on a summer restaurant dining experience.
Outside is still only semi-open and hangouts with friends physically distanced for everyone’s safety. So why not recreate the semblance of past social hangouts with a dish that is a staple at many gatherings, NACHOS!
During a crisis, sometimes benign and routine actions keep us grounded and nourished so we are available to fight for justice.
In these moments I go back to food staples that use items already in my pantry. Something that will provide shelf-stable and easy nourishment.
Today that’s granola. It’s a simple and incredibly versatile recipe that can easily be adjusted based on your needs.

The Yoga District 200 and 500 hour teacher training certification programs, registered by the Yoga Alliance are unique in their emphasis on diversity of teaching styles studied, personal attention, and trauma sensitive yoga. It's no coincidence that Yoga District is regularly voted the leading studio in the nation's capital, and that most of its classes are taught by graduates of its training program. As a full time yoga school, small group trainings are led up to eight times a year by a dedicated faculty including Jasmine Chehrazi, contributor to the Harvard Karma Yoga Project teacher training, teacher training faculty at George Washington University, Yoga Alliance Standards Committee Advisory Board Member, Yoga Activist Founder, and Yoga Service Council Advisory Board Member. So take your practice and community involvement to the next level by joining a training. There's a reason why our graduates call the training "transformative."
