Power bowl with roasted delicata squash, quinoa, spinach, basil, and toasted pine nuts. Oil-free, gluten-free, and packed with protein and leafy greens!
At yoga teacher training last weekend we wrote our fears (about beginning training) on scraps of paper and burned them standing in a circle in the parking lot.
When it was my turn, I read my fears aloud (public speaking, lack of time, judgement) and then added sheepishly, “One of my other fears is fire, so, uh, could someone else light this for me?”
One of my yoga teachers grabbed my paper, squatting towards the asphalt and lighting my folded fears with ease.
The truth is that all of my fears wouldn’t fit on that scrap piece of paper even if I wrote SUPER small.
They’ve been a little out of control lately adjusting to living, cooking, and working in a new space.
Change. Is. Hard.
For example, I used an electric stovetop my *entire* life, and was more than apprehensive about the gas cooking range in my new townhome.
“You mean I have to cook over an open flame???”
Fear of fire, friends.
Well, and the very real fear of accidentally leaving the gas on, because I can be so haphazard in the kitchen.
This Delicata Pesto Quinoa Power Bowl is the first thing I’ve cooked in my new home and I’m pretty proud of it.
These power bowls are an excellent basic meal to make this fall for an easy protein-packed lunch or dinner.
Feel the fear (and the fire) and do it anyway!
