Chewy Lemon Oatmeal Cookies for breakfast

I just made a batch of chewy oatmeal, lemon, walnut and date cookies to eat for breakfast this week! The recipe is from Forks Over Knives, and it’s made with whole grain oats and no refined sugars.

Scarborough Yoga Review – Gentle Flow with Kristine Keegan

Remember my post yesterday about enjoying doing a yoga video at home but wishing I were in a studio instead? Don’t worry, I found one! I finally made it to Scarborough Yoga, a local yoga studio near where I stay in Maine.
