Two posts in a week – I know, but this has been on my mind and something I found out yesterday has encouraged me to pre-share some thoughts with you. (Please note this post contains affiliate links).
There’s a scripture that says “money answereth all things” (Ecclesiastes 10:19) in essence what this means is that money talks. But there’s a version of this saying that I much prefer, which says “money has an answer to all things” (CJB). Whilst money can and does talk, it is not the sole answer to all our problems.
What has this got to do with healing diets? A change in diet has helped me enormously. Last year I was suffering from what I thought was really bad anaemia, but it was actually adrenal exhaustion. I would wake up by 9am and be exhausted by 12 and need to sleep for at least an hour by 4pm. If I didn’t I would feel breathless, dizzy and faint. I tried iron supplements to no avail, before I realised that I had to drastically change my diet.
Since then there has been a 180 degree shift, I no longer feel exhausted and I don’t have to take a nap in the afternoon and I’m well on my way to having my adrenals restored to normal functioning. Continue reading Diet is an answer… why Eating Right encourages Healing.
I can’t believe I’m coming into the fourth week of the cleanse, I should be happy but there are a couple of things that weigh me down at the moment. I have been in a lot of pain recently, yesterday I went to sleep in pain and today I woke up in pain, I’m at that point of scratching my head and wanting to pull my hair in frustration, why am I still feeling so bad? The issue is that this time last year I was in a much better state (physically) than I am now, and I know there are probably a number of reasons why this could be the case. Physically, I’ve not been as strict with myself on this cleanse as I ought to have been, the thought of doing this cleanse scared me so much that I changed a few things to make it more easy going this time around, I need to do this properly from now on. Secondly, I feel that the more understanding and knowledge God gives you, the more He challenges you to apply His truth to your life, maybe this is another part of His oh so intensive refining process because I am that bit more stronger in Him. I don’t know and that’s the killer. Continue reading Passover Cleanse update and step 4
As the steps of my Passover Cleanse increase I inevitably begin to miss certain foods, but I am determined to find delicious and nutritious alternatives to those much-loved foods, so here’s my attempt at whole grain breakfast muffins.
- Ok, these really are a first attempt, the top ones have lavender and the bottom ones cocoa chunks (oh yes…and they came out slightly burnt).
The inspiration for these muffins really came about from my experience of using bananas and oats in many of my sweet treats… they go sooo well together. 🙂 For a really delicious breakfast why not try half a mashed ripe banana in your oats mmmm.
