The blog on nutrition will just talk about anything that is related to nutrition. It could be my experience of a specific diet, a known fact through study and observations, link between diet and our worldly experience through the emotional states or the modes of nutritional absorption and more. It could be just about anything that I feel like writing on the subject as long as it gives some insight. Also I should tell here that our body is a lot more complex than simple physical aggregation. It works and heals on many levels. So do our current lives equally complex where we are juggling with multiple aspects – your true desires, your office, your family, your health and more together. To know how diet and nutrition fits in the whole scheme of things and can lead you to larger goals than just a healthy body, do read the book Can You Play. Remember, even Buddha realised that he could not do away without food while pursuing his mission.
