I pause here with selfie in order to bring glory to God and praise Him for providing the strength for me to obey Him in the area of food. I only have 3 pounds to my goal of 50 pounds down. I have lost 47 pounds to date. This has been an act of obedience in an area where I had a stronghold… food. People can have strongholds that keep them from eating, that cause people to gorge themselves then purge, or over-eat/indulge in gluttony. All of these are treated with obedience to Jesus; the love relationship with Him is what shatters strongholds, heals and strengthens us. And God is definitely my Savior in every way and I am so blessed and happy to be obedient to Him in this last stronghold of my life. God is so very good!!❤❤❤
At a weight plateau, I was stuck for a few weeks. And now, perseverance has paid off and another pound came off. And I realized that even with 9 pounds left to go of my 50 pound goal, I fit into clothes I have been unable to wear since before my son was born, some 13 plus years ago. I also noticed that I feel great and have as much energy as I had then. And way much more importantly than any of that, I am obeying God with food and not fighting Him. And obedience in every area of my life makes me very very happy, peaceful and joyful nowadays. I am prepared to help and work or just rest for the Lord and that makes me very very happy. And even if years have passed, obedience is attainable and I am proof. Keep at it. Never give up. God is worth it!!!❤❤❤
So, another concoction I tried that worked for two lunches worth is the following:
1 avacado, peeled, pitted and chopped
1 purple yam, skinned chopped and boiled to desired tenderness
1 sm. can salt – free pees
1 sm. can salt – free green beans
1 can tuna, drained
Drizzle agave nectar and few splashes of red wine vinegar (my new favorite dressing)
Himalayan sea salt and pepper to taste
Mix above and separate in half- one serving for today and one for tomorrow. It is delicious. 🙂
I made up this breakfast. Because it takes some time to cook, I cook breakfast for 3 days at a time and separate the food into three equal portions and store it in the fridge. I don’t go longer than 3 days because I want the ingredients to stay fresh.
1 medium onion, chopped
1/2 yellow squash, chopped
1 pkg. Frozen spinach, thawed
Salt – free can of chicken
Salt, pepper, garlic powder, Italian seasoning, parsley flakes, agave nectar (drizzled in onions while cooking them)
Saute onions in skillet with water and a splash of olive oil with drizzle of agave nectar and desired seasoning on medium high. Add yellow squash after 3 minutes. Cook for 5 minutes. Add spinach and chicken and desired seasoning. After 2 minutes, drop 2 eggs on top and mix thoroughly. Once eggs are cooked thoroughly, you are finished.
It is delicious and paleo friendly. And this nutrition plan works well because I am down 21 pounds now and feel 100% healthier and more energetic. Also, my skin is no longer broken out and my skin is healthier.
Well, we weren’t really blue, but if we were, it would have helped. But as it were, we are happier. Yummy! We have plenty… 😄❤
I just tried the strangest combination and it was very good. I put cottage cheese on a Triscuit cracker and sardines on the cottage cheese. Great combination. Of course, you’d have to like all those ingredients but they have a special something together. Anyway, thought I’d share. Or gross you out. Either way, have a great day! 😄❤
Food. It is something we have to have to live. It gives us energy and nutrition. It promotes a healthy life and balance of mood. It also gives pleasure to the mind. And just as important if not more than the food we eat with our mouths is the food we eat with our Bible study and acceptance of teaching in prayer and Godliness. We need to take in God’s Word for the same reasons we need to eat. ❤
