Curried Mango in Avocado

Taken from Yoga Journal. Thanks!



  • 1 jumbo avocado, about 1 1/2 lbs.
  • 1 large ripe mango, peeled and cubed
  • 1/2 cup crushed banana or plantain chips
  • 1 to 2 tsp. curry powder, or to taste
  • 2 Tbs. mayonnaise, or low-fat or vegan mayonnaise
  • Juice of 1/2 lime
  • 1/4 cup chopped fresh coriander leaves
  • 3 Tbs. pickled ginger for garnish


  1. Slice avocado in half, cutting lengthwise. Carefully pull or twist halves apart, and remove seed. Using sharp paring knife, cut crosshatch pattern into flesh almost to skin, and spoon out cubes, leaving 1/8-inch inside layer of avocado flesh. This keeps avocado shell stable.
  2. In mixing bowl, combine avocado cubes, mango cubes, crushed banana chips, curry powder, mayonnaise, lime juice and coriander leaves, stirring together gently.
  3. Mound mixture into avocado halves. Sprinkle each with pickled ginger slices.

Cruelty-free Fashion

Thursday, May 13th, 2010

Cruelty-free fashion is where it’s at. I love, love, love Moo Shoes. They don’t just have shoes – they have belts, bags, shirts, sweatshirts and more. They are also vegan owned and operated.

The mens shoe selection is great. If you don’t want traditional combat boots because of the leather – try these! They have a big selection of seriously super cute and high fashion womens shoes too. 

Moo Shoes has a store in NYC or you can shop online at

Fashion can have a conscience

I am a big fan of the clothing designer John Bartlett. Not only are his collections fantastic, he has a great blog. I was very excited to read about his recent Vegan transformation. Starting in September 2010 he won’t be using leather in his designs, but instead leather alternatives. BRAVO! Look good- feel good, and feel good – look good.

Best Vegan Eats in Brooklyn

Thursday, April 29th, 2010

Sun In Bloom restaurant is one of Brooklyn’s best kept secrets. They serve delicious, fresh, locally grown vegan cuisine. Located near several Yoga studios on Bergen Street in Park Slope, it is perfect for an after Yoga meal. The staff is super friendly. Aimee, the lovely owner is herself a certified Yoga instructor, specializing in Bikram.

From fans of veggies to vegan to raw there is something for everyone! They have live food that is full of enzymes and life energy. After eating at Sun In Bloom I feel my soul, body, and mind have been nourished. You can follow them on Twitter @suninbloom.

All the cuisine served is farm to table. It is all local grown organic food. It feels good to know you have eaten responsibly, and it tastes fantastic. The sweets are out of this world! My favorite is the red velvet truffle pumpkin spice cup cake with brandy frosting. Hard to believe it’s gluten free and totally vegan!

My favorite soup is the carrot with ginger, it warms the body up. Ginger is great for blood circulation and controlling cholesterol.

They make amazing juices too. Check out their menu! Even better, head on down to 460 Bergen Street and tell them Charles sent you.
