Crunchy Lentils

Too busy?  Want healthy food that tastes great?  Have 15 minutes or less?

If you want to have more energy, a sharper mind, and feel less stress,  try this!


LENTILS are generous in phosphorus, calcium, potassium, zinc, molybdenum, iron and even B complex, may be the most nutritious of all legumes and one of the most popular around the world.

CELERY helps synovial fluid production to ease achy joints…ah sooo good for the joints.

GREENS are full of magnesium, iron, potassium, phosphorus, zinc, calcium and vitamins A,C, E, K and folic acid.  They are blood purifiers, immune strengtheners, full of flora and enzymes (if raw or barely steamed) to help digestion, clear congestion, and elevate your mood.

OLIVE OIL contains oleic acids, a type of fatty acid, good fat, to help cleanse the blood vessels.

LEMON JUICE is preferable to vinegars because it is fresh, unprocessed, contains no yeasts and is alkalizing (which is great for American diets laden with acidic foods.)

THYME is a natural antifungal, good for respiratory congestion, and crampy gassy bellies.

BLACK PEPPER stimulates digestive juices and eases sore joints with it’s anti-inflammatory properties.

GARLIC is the natural miracle food, antiviral, antifungal, antibacterial, lowers cholesterol and more.

What People Are Saying. . .
I just completed Michele’s 90-day MORE program. As Michele will remind you, if you decide to study with her, things don’t happen to us; they happen for us. Michele happened for me just when I needed what she is committed to teaching. Commitment is the key word because she is always thinking of what she can do to help others live happy, successful lives filled with joy. She takes care to really understand what each of her students needs and instinctively suggests just the right message, yoga exercise, meditation, food, experience, etc., that will resonate with them to help them courageously live the life they want. Michele is a gift you deserve to give yourself when you’re finally ready to live your best, authentic life.

...I have suffered from emotional eating for 6 years, during which I have juggled and switched through different therapists and treatment options. I continued to feel "stuck" as the approaches focused on the past and why I acquired my disease. ...Michele's plan of remaining present- right here, right now- in addition to helping me choose love for myself, has allowed me to grow physically, mentally, emotionally, and spiritually... Michele is a true gift from God.

The benefits have been significant. My reason for doing this yoga is to improve and maintain good health. Each morning class provides me with the motivation to get up and improve my physical and mental strength. I also think one of the greatest things about Michele’s 365 Yoga Course is I can join a class any day of the week, drop in at any time during the class and leave at a time that works for me and my schedule, from anywhere I am.
