As you know, I'm a new fan of Pinkberry frozen yogurt following my most recent trip to NYC. As a result, I've been out of luck back in Boston, as the healthy chain has yet to open a franchise location here. There's a smattering of purveyors selling similar yogurt treats, such as Berry Lime and BoYo, but none near me, so I was elated to discover a new flavor of Haagen Dazs at the grocer last weekend, Tart Natural Low Fat Frozen Yogurt. While the texture doesn't quite match the divine standards of Pinkberry, the taste is pretty perfect. Rumor has it I'll be having a summer fling with this flavor.
Finally, my post-marathon hips want to send a love letter to a great variation on half-pigeon. Lately, I have been doing lots of this pose with the help of my foam roller. Essentially, I sit on the foam roller and use it to leverage my shin away from my body. By adding the use of the roller to this familiar pose, the asana becomes almost medicinal in nature. I've been using to help rehab a sore right hip following the Boston Marathon last month.
