Shining LIGHT to a darkened world


                       40 Day Menu


All of these dishes should be made with ingredients that are free from any animal, dairy, or egg product. Stay away from processed foods with artificial ingredients, preservatives, hydrogenated oils, high fructose corn syrup, and, unless they are tomatoes, stay away from canned foods. The less that is used in the product, the more wholesome it is and the better off you are nutritionally. The ingredients for the dishes below can be found at your local natural/organic food store.

1 large onion
1 cup of organic unbleached white flour (not enriched)

Fill a large pot with water. Place the beans in the water adding the seasoning to taste. Boil on medium, checking the pot to make sure that the water does not run out, until the beans are soft. 

Flatbread
Mix flour and salt together well. Add oil. Gradually stir in water until you are able to knead the dough. Knead the dough for about 3 minutes. Break off the dough in pieces. Make a circle with one hand and that should be about the size of each dough ball. Roll out the dough balls on a floured surface.
