Learning and Eating in New Mexico

Los Poblanos Inn in Albuquerque


I am excited to share some travel photos from a recent trip to New Mexico.  I love planning trips that combine all of my passions.   This long weekend consisted of  an Ayurveda cooking workshop with Dr. Lad at the Ayurvedic Institute in Albuquerque, accommodations at a very cool ranch, healthy & yummy food, and a really nice hike through Tent Rocks.  My friend and travel partner also made some time for a trip to the Georgia O’Keeffe and Ansel Adams museum in Santa Fe.

The workshop with Dr. Lad was incredible!  I left with some great recipes in addition to furthering my studies.  Since returning home, I’ve made a trip to an Indian market in Providence and made one of my favorite kitchari recipes.  I love the addition of cilantro, which adds flavor while also functioning as a cleansing herb and digestive aid.

The inn where we stayed, Los Poblanos, was recently written about in Bon Appetit Magazine.  They have such a nice farm shop, sweet staff, and incredible food as you can tell from the photos below.  They also sell a variety of lavender products from their lavender farm on the property.

Taking a hike through Tent Rocks on a super sunny 60 degree day was an added treat.  The area is so peaceful and beautiful.

I’ve always loved Ansel Adam’s photography and been intrigued by Georgia O’Keeffe.  In fact, I remember writing a paper in college comparing the written work of Virginia Woolf and the art of Georgia O’Keeffe.  That’s what you get from a girl who majored in English and Women’s Studies 🙂

The museum in Santa Fe was really nice and featured a lot of Adam’s and O’Keeffe’s work of Hawaii.

While in Santa Fe, we had lunch at Body.  I wish we had a place like this in RI.  Yoga + Healthy Food Cafe + Store = Joy!

On our last night in Albuquerque, we ate at Annapurna  near UNM, amazing Ayurvedic dishes here!
