This is really good! I've put it on chicken, kale, broccoli, and could pretty much eat it with a spoon.
SPICY COCO SAUCE

- 3 to 4 cloves garlic, chopped Ginger, cinnamon, cumin, turmeric, freshly ground black pepper, cayenne (all to taste)

- ½ tsp sea salt
- 1 heaping tbsp brown sugar
- Sauté onion, garlic, and spices in coconut milk.

Interesting week, in which I discovered a couple of things.
I'm working the detox and discovery part of "The Plan" and 2 things:
When you're in the discovery phase, you can plan to lose 1/2 pound a day (if you're sticking to the plan.) If you find a food that **you** are reactive to, you can bump up a pound.
Almonds (which are non-reactive for most) apparently give me a horrendous sweet tooth - and cause me to bump up a pound (although whether from the almonds or from the falling to forementioned sweet tooth, I'm not sure)
white bread - makes me feel icky and bloated and gives me insomnia leaves me to think (because of the 1/2 pound weight loss) that I'm not **reactive** but am sensitive to gluten.
