We are done with chicken nuggets!



My daughter has decided that the chicken nuggets she ate today would be her very last.  And I'm all for it!

The family and I decided to pay a trip to Wendy's today for lunch.  I love their chive potatoes and chili.  My daughter got the spicy chicken nuggets and fries and my hubby got his usual burger and fries.

As we were eating our meals my daughter was telling me about the chicken nuggets she had been given last year when she was in public school.  Which she hated by the way, she begged me to homeschool her this year like she has been since Kindergarden and I agreed.  As most of you already know.  :)

She said that when when she bit into the nuggets at school the meat was pink.  She said it was so gross that she wouldn't eat it.  She would eat everything else on the plate except the chicken nuggets and tell the teachers that she was finished.

She asked me what that pink stuff was.  And immediately I thought about the picture below that has been circulating on the internet for a long while now....



I'm sure most of you have seen it.  I was grossed out by it when I saw it.  It's the mechanically separated meat that has been chemically treated with chlorine and is supposed to be safe for human consumption.

I told her that I really didn't want to talk about it while we were eating, but we could research it together once we were done eating.

Before I could even get to my laptop after we were done my daughter had already googled "what is the pink stuff in the chicken nuggets at school" and had the pictures and videos pulled up on her desktop.

We started watching all kinds of videos about the chemicals in our food and needless to say, we were both grossed out and very concerned about our health.

Below are the videos we watch in order.  Brace yourself people.  Pretty gross....






Welp.  I'm sure you're pretty concerned yourself after watching these videos.  There are many more videos like this all over youtube if you want to do some more research yourself.

I have decided to make it my mission to make wise decisions when it comes to food for me and my family.  I will be going to Trader Joe's this week to do some shopping and will be making lot's of changes to our diets.  I'll be sure to share the journey with you all.

As always... Wishing you Love, Peace, Prosperity and Many Blessings!

What does the bible have to say about OVEREATING - Plus a prayer to overcome!



I am a woman who likes food.  I've been known you say (many times), "I love food."  I like to cook, but one of the reasons I believe I like to cook is because I like to eat!

I had to share todays devotional from bibleresources.org because it is all about food and it sheds some light on what God has to say about overindulging in all of the wonderful food he had blessed us with to eat.

If you are like me and are struggling with overeating this will speak to you as it did me.

Enjoy~

Always wishing you Love, Peace, Prosperity and Many Blessings...

God's Wisdom for Daily Living

Devotional Scripture

Proverbs 25:16 (KJV):
16 Hast thou found honey? eat so much as is sufficient for thee, lest thou be filled therewith, and vomit it.

Proverbs 25:16 (AMP):
16 Have you found (pleasure sweet like) honey? Eat only as much as is sufficient for you, lest being filled with it, you vomit it.

Thought for the Day

God desires that we enjoy the good things that He created for us to eat (Psalm 103:5), but we need to be sensitive to the Holy Spirit's guidance in all our ways, including eating. Honey and sweet things ought to be taken in moderation, lest overindulgence make us ill. The Bible teaches moderation and temperance in all things (Galatians 5:22-23). Overindulgence opens the door to gluttony, which has become one of the most widespread sins in Western culture and America. Food is the god of millions. Obesity is now a common problem. To maintain God's blessings, we must obey His Word regarding both spiritual and physical matters. "Let your moderation be known unto all men. The Lord is at hand" (Philippians 4:5).
The world has set the standard when it comes to eating, rather than the Word of God. Here is another area where we need to be sensitive to the Holy Spirit's guidance. First, we need to make sure that we are receiving proper spiritual food; however, the Lord is also emphasizing to His people that they need to make changes in their physical diets and receive the proper natural foods. Most of God's people have experienced His healing in their bodies, but one problem that seems to be prevalent is that after receiving healing, the devil comes back to rob them of God's gift of healing. However, if we exercise our faith and rebuke the enemy in the name of Jesus, he will flee. If you have done this and are still experiencing illness, perhaps the problem is one of maintaining the gift God has given you. By this I mean we must not only obey and keep spiritual laws, but also we must keep physical laws if we expect to walk in God's blessings.
Our body is the temple of the Holy Spirit. We are each a caretaker of our body, but many of us do not honor the God of glory who lives within us. Rather than keep His temple in good shape, we neglect it and fill it with garbage foods. We ought to assess our eating habits to bring them in line with Biblical guidelines. Many are tired and sick because a large part of their diet consists of highly-refined, nutritionally-dead foods. A good rule is to eat the "living foods" God created: fresh vegetables, fruits, grains, nuts, legumes and dairy. God's guidelines for meats are given inLeviticus 11. In ourselves, we may not be able to overcome old eating habits, but through prayer and with His help, we can (Philippians 4:13). If we seek God on this important subject, He will direct us to a solution. Ultimately, it is faith and obedience to God that gives us victory.
While it is good to emphasize proper eating and physical exercise, we must beware of extremes. Our spiritual health should always be given top priority, since it determines the quality of our lives on earth and in eternity (1 Timothy 4:8). Many people have become unbalanced by putting too much emphasis on the physical man, while neglecting the spiritual man. We must not neglect our physical health, but we should avoid becoming overly concerned about it and allowing it to absorb too much of our time. God desires that we learn self-discipline and temperance in all things. I appreciate a book that I read years ago on dieting: More of Jesus, Less of Me. Submitting to Christ's Lordship is the key to a proper balance between the care of our spiritual man and physical bodies. We should make Jesus "Lord of the Fork."

Prayer Devotional for the Day

Dear heavenly Father, I am thankful for all of the good foods that You created for our pleasure. They have been a blessing and I have enjoyed them. Lord, help me not to over-indulge and put too much emphasis on food. Give me a desire to eat things that are good for me and deliver me from those things that are not healthy for me. Since You created our bodies, I trust Your wisdom to know what things are best for me to eat. Forgive me for any lust for food, and may I eat those things that will cause me to have a healthy body so that I can serve You without illness and lack of energy. I ask this in the name of Jesus. Amen.
