HOMEMADE SALSA (Daniel Fast approved)

Church of the Highlands is 3 days into its annual 21 Days of Prayer & Fasting. It’s one of my favorite things our church does because they also have a 1hour service Monday – Friday at 6am + Saturday at 9am. Something about everyone gathering together for a brief message, quick worship, & intense prayer every day is incredible to witness & I am so thrilled to be apart of it.

Before 21 Days of Prayer & Fasting even began, the tribe sat around the table and shared what their plans for the fast was. Mine was, “fast for 3 days with only water, & the other 18 days do the Daniel Fast.” (in the Daniel Fast, you can only eat natural foods – i.e. veggies, fruits, nuts, etc.)

Going through  72+ hours with absolutely no food was grueling. But I am so glad I did it! It provided a perspective I had never experienced before & gave me a whole new appreciation for even the concept of “food.” haha 😛

All that to say, tonight, Amberlyn & I went to Wal-Mart & picked up a couple things to make our own salsa  dip. It turned out so great, I wanted to share the recipe.
