I am starting this blog on the second day of my religious week called Paryushan (Jain religion). Due to diet restrictions during the next 7 days I look forward to being even more creative while cooking.

Paryushan is a week to reflect on all the bad deeds one has done over the past year and to ask for forgiveness from all creatures and living beings. During this week in order to control desires, focus energy towards spirituality and cleanse the body our diet is limited to fruits, beans, nuts and dried masala that do not contain any of the following restricted foods: vegetables, roots (onion, garlic, ginger etc.) and breads.
