Eggs for breakfast anyone?

Stay away from all those sugary cereals, which can cause your blood sugar levels to rise and leave you feeling hungry again an hour later. Why not eat a couple of eggs instead. Eggs are wonderfully nutritious, low in fat, and will not affect your blood sugar levels like most cereals do.

Organic eggs are a natural God given food and will not raise your cholesterol levels either, as you may have been lead to believe. They contain many health benefits, which are far better for you than any man made food. So throw away those sugar laden boxes of cereal and enjoy a hearty egg breakfast instead.

Try them poached, boiled, as an omlette or scrambled and if you fancy a fried one just go easy on the oil. 🍳

I love eating eggs for breakfast, so please let me know how you like your eggs and I will give it a go.

Easy baked courgettes

Make a plain tomato and basil pasta sauce.

And God said, Behold, I have given you every herb bearing seed, which [is] upon the face of all the earth, and every tree, in the which [is] the fruit of a tree yielding seed; to you it shall be for meat. – Genesis 1:29

Every moving thing that liveth shall be meat for you; even as the green herb have I given you all things. – Genesis 9:3

Breakfast – red grapes and natural yoghurt

I don’t know about you, but sometimes mornings can be hectic in my household. With two girls often squabbling over who’s going to use the bathroom first, breakfast needs to be quick and simple.

So as long as I have plenty of fruit and natural yogurt in my fridge, I can breathe a sigh of relief. As this breakfast is delicious and only takes a few minutes to prepare.

What you will need: This serves 1

  • A handful of sliced red grapes
  • 3 Table spoons of organic natural yoghurt
  • 2 Table spoons of nutty granola
  • 1 Teaspoon of honey

Place yoghurt, grapes and granola into a bowl and then drizzle over the honey and enjoy!

Red grapes are incredibly good for you and along with a healthy diet can help prevent many health problems such as macular degeneration, reduces hypertention, prevents colon and prostate cancer and many more chronic diseases.

The Bible says in Numbers 23-24:

“And they came unto the brook of Eshcol, and cut down from thence a branch with one cluster of grapes, and they bare it between two upon a staff; and they brought of the pomegranates, and of the figs.”

The place was called the brook Eshcol, because of the cluster of grapes which the children of Israel cut down from thence.”

So go ahead, next time you’re out food shopping grab some grapes! 🍇

Where are the seeds?

Looking back as a child, I remember my parents giving me lots of grapes to eat, which were fresh and juicy from our local Italian shop. I used to like biting into them and looking at the tiny seeds inside, but where are those bitter seeds now?

When you do your weekly food shopping, and you’re walking down the fruit and vegetable aisle, do you ever wonder why the grapes, watermelon, or citrus fruits etc., are seedless, or that they may be genetically modified?

Whatever the case may be, genetically modified or not, the fruit has been tampered with in some way and this infuriates me. Why can’t “they” just leave the food alone the way God created it. Don’t “they” understand that the seeds are there for a reason! In Genesis 1:11-12 the Bible says:

“And God said, Let the earth bring forth grass, the herb yielding seed and the fruit tree yielding fruit after his kind, whose seed is in itself, upon the earth and it was so. And the earth brought forth grass, and herb yielding seed after his kind, and the tree yielding fruit, whose seed was in itself, after his kind: and God saw that it was good”

So you see, God was pleased and of course had good reasons for doing what he did, but man, thinking that he can do better, always ends up making mistakes to the detriment of our health.

The foods with their seeds still intact, contain a myriad of beneficial nutrients, such as vitamins, minerals and antioxidants. These keep our cells healthy, therefore protecting us from all kinds of sickness and diseases. So please keep your eyes peeled for God’s unadulterated foods.

‘Plant-based’ diet

About five years ago I went on a gluten free diet, as I had been greatly struggling with my health. And even though I feel much better now, I still sense that mentally, spiritually and physically I can and should feel even healthier.

My book on ‘Gods food heals’ is a personal study of the foods God has blessed us with that nourish and sustain us. But the problems I’m still feeling today are because of what WE have done to that food, and it’s THAT that hinders us from true health and happiness.

For instance, we shouldn’t eat meat unless it’s organic, because it’s been injected with hormones and antibiotics. And then there’s the poor fish that should be very good for us, but are now high in mercury, because of man’s polluted waters.

So, as man continues to corrupt the perfect food sources that God gave us, what could be the ideal diet for us today?

Recently, whilst surfing the internet, I came across the ‘Plant-based’ diet. And after some extensive research I was intrigued, and decided to order the book and DVD called ‘FORKS OVER KNIVES’.

“A whole-food, plant based diet is centered on a whole, unrefined, or minimally refined plants. It’s a diet on fruits, vegetables, tubers, whole grains, and legumes; and it excludes or minimizes meat (including chicken and fish), dairy products and eggs, as well as highly refined foods like bleached flour, refined sugar, and oil”.

After watching the DVD, and listening to Dr T Campbell and Dr Caldwell Esselstyn, and also the wonderful testimonies of the people who have healed themselves from chronic diseases through a ‘plant-based’ diet, I have decided to give it a try myself.

Fancy a ‘soothing’ cuppa?

If you are looking for an extremely good detoxifying tea, look no further. I have just made my husband a cup of ginger, turmeric, and honey tea, and it’s so nice!

I find this rich, smooth, sweet, and slightly spicy tea warming to my soul, knowing that its many health benefits are assisting my body in healing, and repairing itself.

You will need:

  • Your favourite mug!
  • 1/4 teaspoon of organic ground turmeric
  • 1/4 teaspoon of organic ground ginger
  • 1 teaspoon of organic honey

Place the turmeric and ginger powder into your favourite mug, then pour boiling water, and add the honey. Give it a good stir, and let the powder settle for a minute.

Then simply relax, drink, and enjoy.
