Food For Thought!Makhana or Fox Nuts or Lotus SeedsI've always been a foodie, and a great advocate of "Eating to your heart's content". Because to me food is not just a source of energy that provides the basic nutrients to sustain, rather it plays a vital role in keeping one of the "Micro" aspect of life satiated.

"The eXpression Space" aims to help people with "Self realization", and finding their true calling. The objective of this blog i…
