Tara Stiles’ Make Your Own Rules Cookbook Launch & Guacamole Recipe

Make Your Own Rules Cookbook Tara Stiles

Remember when we interviewed founder of Strala Yoga, Tara Stiles, and then attended the Make Your Own Rules Diet book launch party at her Soho studio?

Getting into the Holiday gift hunt mode, we’re excited about the launch of Tara’s all-new book, Make Your Own Rules Cookbook, celebrated last night at MindBodyGreen HQ. It includes her collection of healthy, easy, and great-tasting recipes from her travels around the world.

Our team member Ksenia’s acai bowl recipe is included in the book, and if you’re in for a yoga party, make sure you reserve your spot for Make Your Own Rules Cookbook launch party and class on November 3 here.

In the meantime, enjoy Tara’s olive guacamole recipe straight from her cookbook!
