Welcome to my first post at Eat or Drink. I’m probably crazy to start another blog, but I am so excited and passionate about healthy eating and living I wanted a place to share that passion and I didn’t feel my other blog was the appropriate place. I want to keep that focused on Christian fiction and non-fiction and stories of how God is working in my life and the lives of those around me.
I will be sharing my story to better health, hopefully reviewing some cookbooks for you and magazines that I might pick up along the way. I will also share with you what I eat each week along with links to the recipes.
I also want to fully embrace the title of this blog and keep my focus on bringing glory to God. 1 Corinthians 10:30 says: So whether you eat or drink or whatever you do, do it all for the glory of God.
So, what do you say? Are you in? Do you want to bring God glory through what you put into your body? If we keep our focus on Him we can’t go wrong. There will be no condemnation, even when you eat the large fries or drink the Starbucks latte, I do it every once in a while and feel no guilt. You don’t need to either. Just be intentional about those treats and make them exactly that. A treat. Not the norm.
Also, I don’t believe in diets. I believe in a lifestyle change. Unfortunately, with most people they try to diet and then give up because it’s a bit extreme, or they put the weight back on as soon as they stop the diet. That has to be so frustrating.
When I started this I had a few people ask me what diet I was doing and I was quick to say, “This isn’t a diet. It’s a lifestyle change.” I can literally eat the way I do now for the rest of my life and I plan to.
I also believe in exercise. I think you need to have both to see lasting change (but I’m not an expert, just a music teacher who has lived it). The way you eat and exercise must go hand in hand to have lasting and positive changes, in my opinion.
So, enough of that. Please subscribe if you are interested in trying recipes that I have tried or just looking for encouragement on your journey to better health. I can’t wait to see what God will do.
