quinoa with winter squash

Today is Wednesday and its almost afternoon. Its still winter here. Lots of snow outside very  cold. I am watching some documentaries about Tibetan religion a d Buddhism. Great religion. Peaceful people most of the time trying to teach meditation and discipline to their youth. I my self find meditation is important part of life, keeps us in touch with our inner self    and omkar our higher self. It purifies our soul and create positive and healing to ourselves and our surroundings. Listening to meditative music creates peace and tranquility to us and the people around us. praying for healing and health for humanity is a good practice to do every day. Eating healthy and organic food is another step towards connecting to nature and being healthy. Today I am going to talk about quinoa grain.
