|No I am not talking vegan here... I don't think I could ever do without meat completely. My mother gave me this book several years ago and I never read it. It just sat on my bookshelf. But recently my Mother had a few health issues and one of them was high cholesterol. If you read the side effects of the medication you will know that taking those cholesterol drugs can be just as scary as the condition itself. So she decided to try a natural approach, she started eating a mostly vegan diet and she only eats meat twice a week. |
The result: Well she feels amazing. And on top of it all, in just 2 months, she is smaller than she has been in years!! She weighs less than me and is taller than me. O.K. so this is the part that really caught my attention.... Oh vanity.... So I dug out this book and started reading it. This book is excellent! It describes the foods that were eaten in biblical times and why. The Author uses scripture and science to explain the details. It is nothing new (obviously) but when it is put in a biblical context it makes it easier for me to digest and accept. So Sunday I decided to start eating mostly vegetables and less meat. I feel good and I have lost 1 1/2 pounds! In 4 days! And I have changed nothing else. Nothing.
|Mandy over at Biblical Homemaking has been another source of inspiration. She has been eating on a similar plan and posting about it. There is great info on her blog. Lastly I want to mention the above CD collection from Vision Forum. I had really wanted to go to this conference but my husband said the only way he would take me is if I would fly!|
EEEK.... So needless to say I bought the seminar instead. ( I am a baby) But I am so glad I bought this. It is a little bit expensive. But the way I look at it I saved a lot of money when I didn't fly to Texas and stay at a hotel.... The information has been so inspirational, plainly spoken, and so far I am enjoying the Cd's. I highly recommend this seminar series. I know this isn't what I usually talk about here on my blog, but I am super excited about this. I have been mainly low carb for years. I feel that I have been missing out on so much. Nutritionally and pleasure wise as well. So I hope you will check out some of this info. Who knows, maybe it is just what you have been looking for. I hope you have a blessed day.
That book sounds like it would be an interesting one. I'm going to order it on amazon.ReplyDelete
My husband ordered the mp3 version of the food conference from Vision Forum. We just received it the other day, but we haven't begun to listen to it just yet. :)
I'm glad you have found a diet that works for you. We all could use a jump start from time to time to be healthier. I know your mom must be scared with her health issues, so I hope she keeps her good eating habits up!ReplyDelete
Hi Amy Jo: I am on cholesterol medication and I don't EVEN want to know what the side effects are! I love veggies and don't really care if I eat meat, except hamburgers, and then I probably go a little overboard. I will check out the book. I'm glad your mom is doing so well. Thank you for leaving such kind words about the kitchen to me. I'm glad you liked it..Happy Sunday..JudyReplyDelete
