I Listen To His Words on Food

Daily I listen to his words as he observes what I do and eat.
Now agreeing with a lot that I listened too but did not totaly agree with over the last few weeks.
Making some changes.  So thankful for this 6 week visit and him to view instead of just listening
to me like I share on weekly emails.  Time soon ends:(

First sugar reminded of sugar :) since I have lost some weight even though eating healthy but 2 small meals
consume a lot of Ensure which is fine but not fine to add ice cream or add a better quality ice cream.
My reason for drinking the Ensure with Ice Cream is trying to add calories so I do not lose
any more weight.  I do not have a hearty appetite

Yes calories but adding a lot of sugar, also yogurt stopping purchasing flavored yogurt which is loaded with sugar and using the best high quality yogurt I can find.   I hear "sugar is a worse addiction then heroine"   Oh my and know it is not good for all of the inflammation in this body

Thought I already knew a lot but doing more research on healthy fat foods. I know what they are but when you wake up at
1 or 2 in the morning, hungry since last meal at 2:30 pm it is so easy and satisfying to open an Ensure and put ice cream in it.   So will now have quality yogurt with a few cashews, whole dates (that have been softened in warm water to make easier to chew) and 1/2 of banana.   This is healthier.

Yesterday's Lebanese meal gave me more ideas.   Tomorrow buying egg plant, zucchini, yellow squash, colored peppers and more veggies to roast in oven with olive oil and more ingredients.
Will add a good healthy cheese, black rice, lentil beans, hummus and pita bread.  A few more items and of course
turkey hot dogs and marshmallow's, used on burning pit  for granddaughter's.
Will buy some healthy cheese and some good dark chocolate.  I eat healthy but it needs to go to the
next level.
 Next morning
will make French toast, covered with blueberries and add some maple syrup for granddaughters.

breakfast this morning
scrambled egg with colored peppers and kale (frozen in freezer), yogurt with cashews and dates and a small side
of last of my Zucchini bread, green tea and small glass of whole milk.
Would say this was healthy....Callie enjoyed what I could not eat :)

Also, no more chances walking without cane in this cottage...

It is so important to feed our bodies with nourishing foods. I believe our bodies are our "gardens" and God wants us to nourish them with healthy things.

These are wise and worthy changes! You inspire me. I know I can make more healthy choices and efforts in the food department. I look forward to hearing about YOURS.
Bon appetit!

Thank you Ernestine. I've been trashing my body lately so need your and son's wise words to steer me back to health.
