Day 9 – Plant Based Whole Foods Challenge

Home-made Sriracha Sauce (Actually became a Green Spicy Salsa … or relish)

1 Green pepper (supposed to be red pepper, but I substituted for this); 1 hot pepper (I used a jalapeno pepper); chopped.

1 tablespoon minced garlic, 1/4 cup of white vinegar, 1 tablespoon coconut sugar, 1/2 teaspoon salt.

Cut and combine all ingredients into food processor. 

Sautee all ingredients for 5 minutes.

Let it cool, then add to your dish.

Day 9 – Well, today definitely did not turn out as well as yesterday… or any other day for that matter. I have been looking forward to this recipe since I discovered it, a few days ago. And I ruined it. First off, I was missing a couple ingredients, so I improvised and it didn’t turn out like I thought it would. Lesson to me, don’t stray too far from the recipe! Anyway, what I originally had hoped would be an awesome spicy Sriracha-type sauce that could be added to a rice or stir-fry dish has become a … well, I’m not sure what it would be good for. I think it might work on a plain brown rice, my wife thinks it would be good as a dip with veggies, but after letting it cool off, it’s really got a relish texture to it, and it’s kind of sweet and spicy. So, I would suggest this as a relish to add to a wrap (Day 2) or burger (Day 8). I have yet to try it with these, so if anyone does venture into it, please let me know how it turns out. Fingers crossed that tomorrow is better.

What’s the saying, ‘the first step to fix a problem is admitting that there is a problem?’ Well, this is me becoming aware of my spiritual problems.

I have recently taken up a journey of self-discovery, awareness and spiritual development. Through Buddhism, Hypnosis, Meditation and various other facets, I plan to cleanse myself, spiritually. We always talk about our physical illnesses or mental disorders, but we never take the time to address something that I now believe is the root of ourselves, our spiritual self. For a long time, I was completely atheist, and scoffed at others that put their faith in what they couldn’t even see. But, due to some recent events in my life, I believe there is definitely something more than just a ‘dirt nap’ waiting for us at the end of our life.

I believe that we have had many lives here and will have many more. There are many things that I have done in my past lives that have established where I am in my current life. My goal now is to fix as much of my karma as possible so I can ensure my next life progresses me in the direction I want it to.
