Pizza & The Ego

Behold! My new favorite lunch treat!

Trader Joes Garlic Naan (indian flatbread), Trader Joes non-fat pizza sauce (did YOU know pizza sauce had fat? I didn't), a smidge of crumbled goat cheese, non-fat mozzerella, sauteed mushrooms, orange pepper, and onion. Place all of your desired toppings on the flatbread while still frozen, toss it into a 400 degree oven for 10 minutes and you have a crispy delicious personal sized pizza for under 300 calories!

AHHHHH!!! It's so good, I've had 3 this week and could seriously eat one a day for life. I love pizza and I L-O-V-E low calorie, gourmet pizza. I think you should drop what you are doing, go to Trader Joes and buy the goods, and then run home to experiance the joy. If you don't have a Trader Joes......I am sorry....so very sorry for torturing you.


And now on to a yoga quote.

"The most common ego identifications have to do with possessions, the work you do, social status and recognition, knowledge and education, physical appearance, special abilities, relationships, personal and family history, belief systems, and often political, nationalistic, racial, religious, and other collective identifications. None of these is you." - Eckhart Tolle

I love this quote because it reminds me that, in life, we are really only our thoughts....who we are when we are alone. Are we happy with this person? In my job I have had the privelage to be with very special people at the end of their lives...they have taught me these and so many other things about the richness of a life filled with love for ourselves and for others.

For some reason the pictures aren't coming up for me, but I think that is a good thing because just reading this is making my stomach growl (and I've already eaten dinner). If I saw the pictures I might have just had to get in the car and head to Madison. Yum.

Thank you for that great yoga quote! I didn't realize how wrapped up I was in all those things that are not me.
Where do you find these great quotes? I love to collect them like friends!

Joy-
I am so glad that you are enjoying the yoga quotes...but I can't take credit. Marlene, my yoga instructor, sets them at the end of our mats at the beginning of shavasana...so when we rise, we have a beautiful quote to take us into our day. It's one of my favorite parts of yoga...and I'm so happy I can share them with you. I'll keep 'em coming!
