Things to say to impressionable young children

If something bad happens, it's because you didn't point your toes.

If you keep falling down, it's because you didn't pray hard enough.

Soda will destroy your stamina.

So if carbonated drinks ever makes it way past your lips into your mouth, you had better spit it out.

People will say anything

They say a watched pot never boils, but I watched a pot today and it boiled. What do you know.

Adrenaline and endorphins are amazing.

Caffeine and sugar are substitutes but with possibly disastrous effects if not used properly.

We need most of all
1. Air
2. Water

In this day and age, most people eat too much.

To reduce excessive eating, practice mindfulness and meditation.

Fasting is the best cure to most ailments. Practice proper breathing, and drink water.

Inhale deeply, retain, and exhale a slow and measured breath.

Inversions help. (Headstand, shoulderstand, handstand)

Made genmaicha latte :) Super love it!

Boil milk with brown sugar (1 tsp for a mug), then steep a packet of genmaicha in it. Simple and delicious!

made my own honey lime juice!

juice of 4 small limes
brown sugar



New recipes I've recently tried

After this most recent trip to India, I've been on a lime+salt streak.

1. I love lime juice + salt!
2. I love fruit juice with lime+salt!
3. I love chaach/chaas with lime+salt!
4. I like corn rubbed with lime+salt. +chaat masala :)
5. Fresh cucumbers and tomatoes with lime+salt.

Grilled eggplant/brinjal slices with salt is yummy.
Fried potato slices with tomato slices + salt. #vjiayandtara's latest creation. We call it the potato-tomato.

 Made guacamole again, from, with less salt (1/2). Would recommend halving the amount of onions too.

Buttered toast with cream cheese & sliced apple.
