Yes, you, like me that has an extra 30 minutes of your life to waste reading somebody else's thoughts....go on. You've still got more time to kill.
One of my favorite Christian authors, Leslie Ludy, wrote in her November-December 2010 Set-Apart Girl Magazine about one big time-waster we have today: Facebook. http://www.setapartgirl.com/home.html Apart from being really bored with Facebook anyway recently & not feeling like I am getting to know anybody, I decided I'd start a blog. A.W. Tozer said "The man who would know God must give time to Him." I want to use God's time wisely, and if I can just post once a week or once a month I'll be giving so much time back for God's usage in my life. Been trying really hard every day to get up early, have a devotion "date" with my Saviour Jesus Christ, do exercises and then get on with regular chores, schoolwork, and life.
I'm a health "nut", and love creating food that is yummy, savory and delicious while still having the most nutrition possible. The green smoothie drinks I make have been called "snot drinks," and am proud to eat "bird seed" cookies. Appreciate all the love.... :-) For a while I was a raw foodie all the way but now I've got a healthy perspective on it. Lots of fresh fruits, vegetables, nuts, seeds, superfoods (goji berries, cacao, chia seeds) some cooked meat & juices and a lot of water are my main food consumption. Had a thanksgiving dinner at church today, and totally pigged out on nasty cooked food....mashed potatoes and gravy are this southern girl's weakness. I pay for it dearly. Here's a easy holiday recipe I tried recently from Ani Phyo's book "Ani's Raw Food Kitchen":http://www.aniphyo.com/
Makes 4 servings
1 cup almonds
1/2 cup pitted dates
1/2 vanilla bean
1 teaspoon grated nutmeg
3 cups water
Blend everything together in blender until smooth. Will keep for four days in fridge.
I also added extra nutmeg and some honey. Tastes almost exactly like eggnog except better for you!
Well, maybe you'll stick around longer to hear whatever else pops out of my brain.....hope you have a great November!
