They say it takes 21 days to build a habit. I say it takes 42 days to REALLY build a habit. I just got through my 42nd day of eating vegan! Yeay! Sharing some scrumptious highlights of my journey so far: Prepping a lettuce-grape-mango contraption, for experimentation's sake. Turned out yom! Availing a vegan diet delivery... Continue Reading →
Let me tell you a secret. Yes, I'm a V. Vegan, that is. Don't get me wrong. I never thought for a second that I'd decide to get into this.

The boy has such respect for Gandhi that he stops and lives a healthy life.
The woman is confused and asks him, “Gandhi, please tell me: why did you want me to wait two weeks to bring back my son.”
