Yoga, Nonviolence, Hypocrisy, and Veganism

I have only been in one fight. It was in the third grade. I don't recall what the impetus was but it ended up in a war of words between me and another boy on the basketball court.

Winter Grapefruit and Pomegranate Chia Pudding

by Leah Rodrigues / Foodista.com

Chia pudding is an easy "feel good" treat that anyone can prepare.  Chia seeds can absorb liquid up to ten times their size which works wonderfully as a natural thickener.  The seeds are combined with coconut milk and topped with fresh winter fruits.  If you are feeling indulgent, add a few shards of chopped chocolate.
