Yoga Cooking Beaches and Surf in BALI Join us

Everything happens for a reason. Every person you meet, every place you go, every decision you make. It is all part of a harmonious dance. 

I met Kelly (SurfMeiMei) 9 months ago, when she walked in to the same yoga teacher training I was taking. Because of my stand off introvert nature, she thought I didn't like her. Haha. I get that a lot. I am intense and I can have resting bitch face. Turns out I adored her. Last day of teacher training I had her over for lunch and the rest is history. 


If you have not heard of Surf Mei Mei then let me introduce you! Surf Mei Mei means surf sister in Chinese. This surf lifestyle and adventure blog is written by 2 friends, PK and Kelly, who met while surfing in New York. Their goal is to empower and mentor women world-wide through experiences that open our minds. 

Let me tell you Kelly is such an amazing soul. Her heart is so big and her desire to learn wisdom and pay it forward is fierce. That is why I leapt at the chance to partner up with her! It was her brilliant idea to do a retreat in Bali with cooking, yoga, culture and surf. 


Now I know many of you have seen Eat, Pray, Love. I don't know that I have met anyone who has watched that, that did not want to go to Bali after. Well now is your chance!!!

My favorite multi-purpose legging


I am a pretty well rounded gal. I like the beach and the mountains. I love the water, and I love the sand. I love my yoga, and get high off a good cardio session. So what is a girl to do? My solution was Luna Jai. Their capri's are multi-functional. Suitable for the beach, the gym, the yoga studio, and suitable for the pool. 

What I love the most about these capri's is that I can go from a hardcore insanity max 30 workout to a vigorous vinyasa class without having to change. I have a lot of nice yoga pants, but if you are jumping up and down hardcore with Shaun T, they don't stay on. Gravity takes over and you are constantly pulling them up. Not with Luna Jai. I like that I don't have to think about anything but my workout when I am wearing them. 

My other favorite thing about Luna Jai is their bright colors and patterns. I love to express myself with color. Before my yoga days my Mom used to always say I wore black. Can't say that about me anymore! I love wearing them. The colors make me happy.

Best part? If you want them, you can get them %15 off with code: momwhatsfordinner at checkout.

I run many challenges hosted by Luna Jai check them out on Instagram @lunajaiathletic 

Yogi approved tank top

I recently was blessed with a package from Balini Sports. In my line of work, I get to try out a lot of fitness apparel, a wonderful perk. Some stand out more than others. Balini Sports stands out to me because I have had a big problem with finding a top and bra that will hold everything in while I am in the throws of my Vinyasa flow. I have found that sun salutations lead to apparel malfunction with even some of the top brands out there. I was so frustrated I went to lululemon to see if their price tag might reflect in some deep dark hidden secret on how to keep the girls strapped in after several chaturanga's. Alas, after spending over $100 I trotted to a yoga studio only to find I still had the same issue. 
SO... you can imagine my happiness when I wore my new Balini Sports Megan Yoga tank
Usually in this halfway lift, I am tucking things back where they go. Love the freedom this tank top gives me! 
I am now able to do a full class without having to adjust my top. SO WONDERFUL!!!

BaliniSports was founded on a mantra of freedom; the freedom to move without restrictions, the freedom to live a full life, free of anything holding you back.
Upside down is no longer a problem! The tank stays at my waist while holding in things that need to be kept away.

The bluesign® certification guarantees that Balini Sports products are made exclusively of a combination of components and processes that are harmless to human beings and the environment.

Balini’s friendship with INVISTA has allowed them to use technologically advanced fabrics that provide quick-drying comfort, softness, strength and style. That partnership has also allowed them to provide eco-friendly fibers to fabric mills that operate within an eco-friendly process, making every step of the manufacturing process environmentally friendly and bluesign® certified. 

The bluesign® certification guarantees that their products are made exclusively of a combination of components and processes that are harmless to human beings and the environment. In order to achieve this certification, their brand’s manufacturing process undergoes rigorous testing to comply with the standards set to reduce the textile industry’s impact on people and the environment. 
#BaliniSports doesn’t just use eco-conscious fibers; they pride themselves in having a complete manufacturing process that’s ecologically aware, operating in an effort to reduce our footprint.  How they source, how they recycle, how they treat the water, how they dye, even the dye they use is all part of a living a dream while loving the Earth.

As a consumer, you can feel good purchasing Balini Sports products knowing that you’re giving yourself and the world the best opportunity to thrive.

This yogi approves!!

Hard work pays off. Today is one of the happiest moments of my life thus far. My passion is to help you all get healthy and happy and live out your lives the way they were meant to be lived. This is what I consider to be my best work. It will be my last book for a while. For this, my third book is now a tour and we are traveling around the U.S. as well as Bali and Africa to spread awareness of healthy food and movement in your body. 

If you are looking for a place to start. I hope you consider getting one. 
For a limited time I will be sending little personalized notes written in each book. I care about you all so very much. You all have inspired me, cheered me on during my cancer battle. Encouraged me during my after battle of getting my health back and the weight off. This is everything I learned on my journey. I hope you take the time to read it so that you can help keep your family safe from the dangers of processed foods. 

The book is full of information on chemicals to avoid, ingredients to avoid. How to do 75 of the most popular yoga poses complete with full color photography. As well as 75 of my favorite clean eating recipes. Like this one:
