bitter guard and its benefits

Today is Monday, Its again snowing. We practice our meditation and ate our breakfast and when I looked outside I saw snow falling outside.  School bus passed by our street. Normally kids stay home and studying online. Our meditation music is very relaxing and healing. Our patch of forest is still standing outside in the snow. I think snow is melting. I just made a cup of Indian tea with herbs, taste awesome. Its almost afternoon and I think I am going to write about another vegetable that is very healthy and used in Asian cuisine.
