I’ve been hearing about using black beans to replace flour for a while now and I wish I had trusted the rumor sooner- these are absolutely fantastic! They’re chocolatey, rich, and smooth but are low fat, have lots of protein (for a brownie at least haha), and are even gluten free! I used powdered sugar because it was what I had on hand and I think it helped the texture too but if you just have regular sugar around use it.

You can also add nuts like almonds, hazelnuts, or peanuts to the batter, or even drizzle the top with melted peanut butter!

Yoga for Stiff Neck & Shoulders! (Full write-up on sassy-yogi.com!)

It has been ages since I have posted a yoga guide, and today’s guide is something that I have been doing almost every day since I started a desk job! As we spend long hours at our desk and computer, we tend to place a lot of tension in our neck, shoulder, and lower back.

Some of the poses that you can do to relieve the tension in your back and shoulders include: cow face pose, seated spinal twist, puppy stretch, thread the needle pose, seated side stretch, passive standing forward fold, downward facing dog, bridge pose, reclining spinal twist, and ending it off with a good ol’ shoulder stretch!

Full write-up of the different poses can be found in my brand new post on sassy-yogi.com, so be sure to check it out and comment if you have any other poses that you always do to relieve that ache in your neck!

Some things to note:

  1. Remember to breathe - inhalation to straighten your spine, exhalation to relax and deepen your stretch
  2. This is a relaxation sequence so please remember not to push yourself too hard! That can lead too additional stress in your shoulders and back instead.
  3. Feel free to stay in these poses for as long as you like, generally around 5 to 10 long and deep breaths per pose would be a good gauge <:

Have fun with this sequence, and let me know how it works for you! Namaste <3

WHAT DOES THAT EVEN MEAN

it means that some people think they are that worthless that they will settle for abusive love. they attract the people that treat them how they think they deserve to be treated. others may have their sense of self-worth so won’t settle for anything below what they deserve. how you view yourself is how you’re going to be treated is what it’s saying. so, if you think you deserve more for yourself, that’s what you’re going to get, but if you don’t think you’re a good person, you will settle for much less than you really do deserve. don’t depreciate yourself, because one day you’re going to find someone who will give you everything you deserve and more.
