  2. I made aloo gobi for lunch today. I want to try your cauliflower potato recipe. I don’t have a fresh coconut, just the canned “milk” and a package of dessicated coconut, which I’ll use. Your site is inspirational, Thanks.

  3. Fasting is good for health , healing can take place at every level, simply by letting go and allowing Mother Nature to do her work, however weight loss is a pleasant side effect :-)
