Now, here's what I'm talking about . . . food with a sense of humor! I can identify everything in this picture except the red blob over his banana eyebrows...a strawberry? I am happy to report that eating vegetables, fruits and legumes is fun! I do not miss meat. So far. I read once that we should eat food as close to the way God made it as possible. Such a goal would point us toward a whole foods, natural diet for sure. He did supply us with everything we need to survive, and there are no trans fats in anything He makes! I also love that He designed foods so that we can be healthy whether or not we want to eat meat. There is protein in broccoli! Who knew? There is also calcium in broccoli!
Today I just want to enjoy knowing that God promises to and does provide for all my needs. He does that in ways that I cannot comprehend and that I often don't even notice. As I go through this weight loss journey, I'm noticing that a lot of my anxieties about food and eating are melting away. I'm beginning to appreciate the bountiful harvest that God provides for my eating pleasure. Food used to be the enemy...now it is my happy, crunchy companion. Before I started this blog, I could not have imagined that I would feel at peace with food. I thought the changes I would experience would all be physical. But my mind is changing. Even my heart. This is about so much more than losing 137 pounds.
