Mango Avocado Black Bean Salad

 

5

Some days I can rock my yoga practice with awesome balance and stellar strength and other days I feel weak, shaky, and struggle even trying to hold my balance in Tadasana! I learn about my body through its fluctuating responses to my practice; Maybe I need more sleep.  Maybe my mind is too busy.  Maybe I’m not nourishing my body with enough nutrients. This is why I love yoga. It helps me to read and understand my own body.

On days like today where my body is weak, tired, and probably not sufficiently nourished I turn to this salad, which is packed full of nutrients from raw fruits and vegetables, healthy fats (avocado) and healthy proteins (black beans).
