I have been reading some Buddhist poetry and there is a very interesting approach to empathy and kindness there. Along with this, i am attempting some local brands of peanut yoghurt and it is fantastic. Some insightful conversations around the 'controversy' of veganism in the later chapters of Nutrition: Concepts and Controversies.
