My favorite part of coming home from Kripalu was re-reading my handwritten notes. We all remember the black cardboard with the white pen attached. I have a few pages of white unlined paper from each session. Granted, my notes are useless to anyone except for me – it’s been that way since Elementary School. But, re-reading them really brings me back to the Orchard Room. Placing our shoes outside of the room, finding either a chair in the outer circle or a black pillow seat-back to sit on the floor. Thankfully, the room was cool. We really lucked out with the air conditioning!
Here are just a few excerpts from my notes. These will mean the most to those of you who were at Kripalu with me.
“Don’t eat oxidized Cholesterol.”
“Take 3 deep breaths.”
“Bread – doorstop”
“Michael Pollen – Food Rules”
“Full Fat in small portions always better than Low Fat”
“No more than 5 ingredients on an ingredient list.”
“GRAS – Generally Regarded as Safe”
I’d love for you to share your tidbits of wisdom from your Kripalu notes below. Each one is so important and is a great reminder of all of the information that we learned!
