Here’s what he said about it:

Hi, my name is Lakhinder and I’m an Addiction Recovery coach. I’ve been in the addiction space in daily interactions with addicts on and off for 10 years.

I’m a lifelong recovering addict who is cross-addicted. If there is a vice, I’ve tried it or come close to trying it. My work comprises working with addicts that are suffering and are facing life-altering circumstances, such as homelessness, arrest or pre- or post-incarceration. I work a lot with alcohol, porn, love and sex addicts. That’s not to say that I haven’t worked with drug addicts because all addictions are related and my role is to help you understand an addict better and as a fellow addict guide you to resources that are proven tools of Recovery. I’m not a therapist or a shrink. Just someone who may be of help where help is needed.

Consider me a Sobriety Coordinator or Counselor.

Burning Man 2018

Sunday, August 26 to Monday, September 3
Black Rock City

Once a year, tens of thousands of people gather in Nevada’s Black Rock Desert to create Black Rock City, a temporary metropolis dedicated to community, art, self-expression, and self-reliance. In this crucible of creativity, all are welcome.

Burning Man Project’s mission is to produce the annual event known as Burning Man and to guide, nurture and protect the more permanent community created by its culture. Our intention is to generate society that connects each individual to his or her creative powers, to participation in community, to the larger realm of civic life, and to the even greater world of nature that exists beyond society.

We believe that the experience of Burning Man can produce positive spiritual change in the world. To this end, it is equally important that we communicate with one another, with the citizens of Black Rock City and with the community of Burning Man wherever it may arise. Burning Man is radically inclusive, and its meaning is potentially accessible to anyone.

The touchstone of value in our culture will always be immediacy: experience before theory, moral relationships before politics, survival before services, roles before jobs, embodied support before sponsorship. Finally, in order to accomplish these ends, Burning Man must endure as a self-supporting enterprise that is capable of sustaining the lives of those who dedicate themselves to its work. From this devotion spring those duties that we owe to one another.

We will always burn the Man.

Having great-tasting, healthful meals doesn’t require cooking an entire feast. Culinary expert and best-selling author Nancy S. Hughes has spent 25 years developing recipes and teaching people how to cook for plenty…and how to cook for just one. Her latest book is entirely focused on the needs of cooking for one and serving yourself a great tasting meal every day of the week.

DESIGNED FOR ONE! 120 Diabetes-Friendly Dishes Just for You contains 120 budget-friendly recipes for dinner, including salads, sides (starchy and nonstarchy), and even desserts! Nancy guides readers through the process of shopping, storing, measuring, and preparing ingredients — including advice on how to pick out fresh ingredients such as asparagus, tomatoes, pork loin, avocados, and loose herbs without letting anything go to waste.

I wrote this book to provide both those living with diabetes and those just looking for healthier meals with easy-to-make recipes using everyday ingredients. No unwanted leftovers. No unnecessary work. Simple comfort for ONE!
— Nancy S. Hughes

Many recipes include tips from the chef (“Freeze leftover canned beans by laying them in a thin layer in a resealable sandwich baggie.”) and there’s a “How To” section that brings all these tips and more together for readers. There’s even a “Two-For-One” chapter where Nancy shares many options for cooking larger amounts to repurpose into other recipes and uses. Nancy draws on her previous books such as The 4-Ingredient Diabetes Cookbook and Two-Step Diabetes Cookbook to ensure these recipes are simple, economical, and rich with flavor. Highlights include:

  • Mediterranean Unstuffed Peppers
  • Red Pepper-Mushroom Skillet Pizza
  • Ham, Pepper, and Pineapple Broiler Packet\
  • Italian Crusted Cod and Spinach
