I was blown away by that statement. I think it applicable with food, alcohol or anything we use to medicate us. I love the picture of God giving this man, who was broken and just given up the idea of a normal life and given him the opportunity to live again. To stay clean. To use his gift. Amazing. Lets think of Ted when we feel like we are struggling today. Think of God unconditional love for us. I also challenge you when you come across a homeless person or someone just down on their luck, to see them with Gods eyes. As a broken person looking for grace. After all, aren't we all just that? Let's love with His unconditional love.
Back to food :)
My meal plan for today:
-1/2 cup almond milk
-1 handful of rasberries
-1 handful of blue blueberries.
(3 points plus)
1 portobello mushroom
1/2 cup garbonzo beans
1 cup fresh spinach
10 kalamata olives
1 tbl spoon light vinagarette dressing
(points plus 7)
1 grapefruit, 100 calorie pack of almonds, 1/4 cup hummus, veggies
(points plus 6)
1 cup black beans
1/2 cup brown rice
1/2 cup salsa
(points plus 12)
1 banana and 1 tbl spoon almond butter
(last night i heated up the banana for 20 seconds and the almond butter for 30 seconds and then drizzled the butter over the banana-it was KILLER GOOD. Do it....you know you want to!)
I also want to apologize for a typo from yesterday...I baked the mushrooms for 40 minutes-not 4 :). Love you guys! Keep up the healthy living!
p.s. If you want to see the video that got Ted all this attention, here it is!
