I worked out with someone this week (SHE shall not be named!) who asked Aldon what football game he was talking about and what halftime show this was with Lady Gaga in it! 😂 I equally love that we moved right on to jump squats since no one needs to convince anyone to like something around here, right? Except for ONE THING. TACOS. In all seriousness, is there someone out there that doesn’t like tacos? I actually want to meet you and just ask why that’s all. I...

chana masala

Hey everybody, here’s a cozy curry meal to warm you up!
