The Eight Things Everyone Wants – How Do You Get Them in a Tough Economy?

October 17, 2008

 

After years of study and working with thousands of people, Dad says that everyone wants to be or have these eight things:

 

Happy

Healthy

Reasonably Prosperous

Secure

Friends

Peace of Mind

Good Family Relationships

Hope

 

So how is it that in any economy you have “rich” people who believe they don’t have any of these things, and you have “poor” people who believe they have more than enough of every one of these things?

 

Did you know you have a choice and you can make every one of these areas better in your life today?  What are you waiting for?

Hot Sauce, Pure and Simple

October 10, 2008

 

When you choose a lifestyle of eating only pure, unprocessed foods with no added chemicals, something amazing happens – your taste buds come alive!  Fresh vegetables, (organic, if you can find them) literally begin to explode with flavor when you leave off the layers of artificial crud.

 

One of my favorite things to make is homemade hot sauce.  It’s easy and fast to make, it is very manly (because I get to use fire by cooking it on my grill!), it is very healthy, and it lasts for a week or two.  Here is my simple recipe:

 

Cilantro (one bunch)

Garlic cloves (two to four cloves depending on how much you like garlic!)

White onion (one medium)

Tomatoes (eight to 12 medium size)

Jalapeño peppers (six to eight)

Habanera pepper (or any other pepper you want to try)

Salt (to taste)

 

  1. Remove stems from cilantro
  2. Grill on medium high the garlic, onion, tomatoes and peppers
  3. Take off the grill when the vegetables have a nice black tint to them
  4. Put tomatoes, onions, cilantro and garlic (pressed) into blender and blend
  5. Add salt to taste
  6. Add three of the peppers and blend, taste; add more if you want more heat.

 

Eat up!  Of course I don’t eat chips, but I use the hot sauce for just about everything else in the house.  Great on egg whites, in soup, on grilled vegetables, fish, steak, chicken, with fresh avocado, just about everything you can think of.
