Simple Healthy Breakfast Cereal IMG_1135

If your like me and your on the go with a big family, you are always looking for simple healthy recipes right? Cereal tends to be a common household breakfast item, but a lot of times is not exactly providing the fuel you need for a busy day. Cereal can often leave you unsatisfied and hungry not long after eating.

Your body is looking for fuel to provide energy, not empty calories loaded with sugar, that can pick you up and let you down quickly. Always read labels! Go to the ingredient list to find what you are eating.

Having Self Control In A World Of Indulgence

Having Self Control In A World Of Indulgence

This is a question that swirls through my mind as I help other people as well as myself try to balance having self control with food choices in everyday life.

As a believer, I know that self-control is a fruit of the Spirit and that it is exercised as we choose to use it. The more we exercise something the stronger it becomes, but to the contrary the less we exercise it the weaker it becomes in us.

The world we live in does indicate that indulgence is something we should allow ourselves, after all we deserve it, right? As adults we don’t have anyone telling us to stop eating, or that we have had enough.

When you wake up with vibrant energy and are healthy it can be fairly simple to go for a jog, a walk, or hit the gym,right? On the other hand, if you feel tired, sluggish, or are hurting in your body it may be the last thing you feel like doing, but may be the very thing you need to do.

Nourishment For The Body

Nourishment for the Bodynourishment for the body

So many of us long to live a healthy and fulfilled life, yet it is so easy to grab something fast or convenient. How do we break this constant cycle to move forward?

Any area in which we want to see change takes a mind set to see beyond where you are today and, a goal and a will to do it. We cannot expect to see results by doing the same thing over and over. Lets be intentional; with small steps, small exchanges to see results.

Isaiah 55:2 ” Why do you spend your money for what is not bread, and your wages for what does not strengthen  and satisfy? Listen diligently to Me, and eat what is good, And let your soul delight itself in abundance.”

There is not a set diet out there that will adhere to one certain person for a long period of time.

The goal here is to create Balance in “your” life.  I looked up the word balance to give us a greater understanding, Let’s take a look.  Balance means stability, to remain upright and steadiness.  

Are you taking time to create new habits with your food, exercise and to feed your soul?

My challenge for all of us is to take time to examine where you are in your life.

Your Not A Failure! Do Not Quit!

Your Not a Failure! Do Not Quit!

Sometimes we feel like a failure when we stumble in our way and that is a lie. You are not a failure unless you quit trying! I can not tell you how many times I have fallen flat on my face and had to get up and keep moving.

When it comes to diet and exercise this is an area that I have failed so many times over the years. It is so stinking hard, with all the food temptations that we have. I mean you would think someone is trying to sabotage us, right!

The commercials for food, the bill boards at every corner, the junk food at the check out lines. Come on people, help a brother(or Mother in this case) out! Our self-control is being tested at every turn.
