Tricolore Salad

Tricolore SaladToo 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!  It is a beautiful combination of potatoes, fresh green beans, and Roma tomatoes- hence the name, tricolore.

GREEN BEANS are really part of the legume family and just as nutritious with potassium, calcium and B complex vitamins, but are often easier to digest than legumes.

TOMATOES are full of vitamin C, carotenoids, B complex, potassium, calcium, magnesium, phosphorus, lycopene (a natural sunscreen).

POTATOES are full of vitamin C, B complex and potassium…  and are right under the skin, so don’t peel them!

It will leave you satisfied, energetic and nurtured.

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.
