alignyo gives me the opportunity to write about two things I’m passionate about: yoga and food. Looking back on 2012, we’ve shared some amazing recipes with our community – nourishing, healthy and energizing dishes that align perfectly with a yoga lifestyle. Below, some of my favorite recipes featured in Get Nourished this year. I encourage you to try them all and look forward to bringing you more healthy recipes in 2013. -- Maya Henderson, senior editor

Sting’s chef Joe Sponzo turned us on to teff and it’s become a staple in my diet. This gluten-free grain is packed with nutritious benefits and makes a tasty breakfast cereal. Find out more about teff and grab Joe’s vegan teff breakfast cereal recipe here.
When the weather outside is frightful, this ayurvedic recipe is so delightful. We’re grateful to Ayurveda expert Ali Cramer of Laughing Lotus Center in New York for sharing her Quinoa & Red Lentil Kitchari recipe with us. This healthy dish, which can easily be made vegan, is warming, filling and comforting – perfect for the cold winter months ahead.
We’re big fans of recipes that look and taste like they took forever, but really only took a few minutes to whip up. This healthy White Bean Dip is perfect for any upcoming holiday parties on your calendar. It’s a great alternative to hummus, takes mere minutes to make and uses ingredients you probably already have in your kitchen.
