Healthy Food for the Soul

healthy mental diet

Living just minutes from Sandy Hook has left an impression on us. It is hard to go to church, the grocery store or library and not encounter someone affected by this recent tragedy in Sandy Hook.

While no other human can truly understand the deep sorrow and suffering that each individual person is going through, God assures us that He does. He Himself suffered the loss of His only Son when He voluntarily gave Him out of love, to die a brutal death for the salvation of mankind. Through His sacrifice, we can receive sure hope in the midst of despair, peace in the midst of turmoil, and the promise of eternal life through the forgiveness of our sins.  (from Newtown Christian Church)

My flesh and my heart may fail,
but God is the strength of my heart
and my portion forever.
Psalm 73:26

Between Holiday Cleanse…

Healthy Diet Cleanse!

I don’t know about you but I feel miserable!  I had an awesome Thanksgiving with my family! (We also do! We have be going to my sister’s house for close to 20 years and we all look forward to our time together.  My sister does an awesome job of being hostess and planning out the meals.  NOTE: If Thanksgiving were at my house, I would be looking at the COSTCO or Stew Leonards meals to serve!)

I digress… Anyway.. all the food is good and healthy but when your body not used to a lot of gluten or dairy or sugar, it kinda reacts to a week of gluttony.  It is not my sister’s fault that I indulged in so many of the goodies!  I take full responsibility.

Also the fact that I had spent the previous two weeks traveling with my husband made the matters much worse.  I was fairly disciplined during those two weeks and was able to get some exercise. But last week, I just lost all control.

RESULT: This week I feel fat, sluggish and blah…


I have resolved to get back on track with my diet and exercise.  I am not going to wait until after Christmas and New Years!  So what does that involve…

1) I installed Noom on my new Samsung Galaxy S3 (my two year contract expired this month and it was time for a new phone and contract.  I love my new phone!)  More on Noom and Samsung later

2) I am cutting my glutton intake by 75% and my dairy intake 100% and my sugar intake 25%.  (Still have to have my chocolate to get through this transition stage.)

3) I am increasing my vegetable intake 300%… Salad at lunch and some veggies at breakfast and dinner

4) Making sure I drink as much waster as I can

My friend, Magdalena, has come out with a guide for what to eliminate in your diet for various ailments.  You might want to see what she recommends.  Click here to view more details
Here are a few of this things from her guide:

What you will get from the Elimination Guide:

  • Clarity on what food exactly is bothering you (sadly, most people have more than two food intolerances so getting off gluten alone is not enough for most people).
  • Meal plan and recipes so you never feel deprived.
  • Complete substitution list for gluten, dairy, eggs, soy and corn so you quickly transition to a new lifestyle.
  • Get to know what the Big 5s and the Small 5s are.
  • Step-by-step instructions on how to administer the Elimination Diet with two options; gentle or fast.
  • What are other, alternative ways of testing for food intolerances.
  • Find out why tomatoes can be a detrimental food for people with joint pains.

How to Cook a Rotisserie Chicken

Why buy a rotisserie chicken when you can cook your own?

There are several ways to cook a rotisserie chicken.  Watch this short video – I like how they recommend anchoring the chicken legs.

Here is a great rotisserie, Showtime Ronco Rotisserie:

Here are few comments about the Ronco rotisserie:

You guys can laugh, but my elderly mom has one of these and the food that comes out of these things are great. I wish I had one, but I will someday when the price comes down a little more. Steve did a great job with the announcing even thoough all of Ron P.’s infomercials are silly, he makes really decent kitchen products. We’ve never had one problem with anything we have bought from him for the kitchen. No joke.

My mom has had hers for years and we’ve cooked many turkeys in it for Fall and Winter holidays. Hers is working great. You can’t treat it roughly. It is a mess to clean, but lots better than scrubbing a turkey roasting pan or any other pan where you roast or cook meat or fish. Charcoal is dangerous to cook with and if its snowing or raining outside, you aren’t going to go outside to cook. The food tastes good so we have been happy with the product.

Here is the Ronco Rotisserie from Amazon

One of the four star reviews:

5.0 out of 5 stars Outstanding Rotisserie
My family has used my mom’s wedding rotisserie for years, but after fifty years it finally died. We were in a panic, what shall we do, after all it lasted fifty years, made of shiny steel. We searched all the rotisseries out there, read the comments on the different products, even looked at eBay, noticed comments about the white plastic discoloring eventually from the…
