Subbing

Calorie counting? Watching your figure (what’s it doing)? Here’s a few substitutes for a nutrient boost without giving up the item completely.

Bread: Everyone’s favorite Carb. But easy to sub out healthier options.
Whole Grains, bibb lettuce, Ezekiel bread(sprouted), pita, or lower Carb tortillas.

Ice Cream: tasty, creamy goodness with fat that you can live without. New options are available.
Portion controlled skinny cow or ice cream bars, low fat dreyers/breyers, frozen yogurt, rice/almond milk ice cream, or no sugar added ice cream.

Pasta: regular pasta is carby & super starchy with no redeeming nutritional value. The options have just exploded.
Gnocchi, frozen Japanese noodles, spaghetti squash, gluten free,  whole grain or whole wheat pastas.

Just 3 favorites that can be changed easily & tastefully. If you’re hesitant to take the full plunge, start mixing half & step slowly into the tasty but healthier ocean of food.

Restoration

While he means physical Israel, you can see his spiritual meaning as well from the view of a fallen but purified believer.

Joel 2:25, 27 NKJV

So I will restore to you the years that the swarming locust has eaten, The crawling locust, The consuming locust, And the chewing locust, My great army which I sent among you. Then you shall know that I  am  in the midst of Israel: I  am  the Lord your God And there is no other. My people shall never be put to shame.

Chick Flicks & Real Romance

My friend neumanntwin made a post today about  Chick Flicks and how men should watch them.

Women love the romance and happiness illustrated in chick flicks. They want a man to pursue them, to rescue them and live happily ever after. The truth of the matter is, men want the same thing. The difference is, they want to earn their love by proving that they have what it takes to win her heart.

I love it. It brings to mind Song of Solomon in the Bible. I don’t know how many times in the book the Lover woos, pursues, and leads his Beloved. His Beloved is astounded he would go to such lengths for her, and she finds it downright irresistible! She downs plays her attractiveness, but he’s like a knight in shining armor (though most of their armor was leather based).  So men, learn from the Lover, and women, wait patiently as his future Beloved.

Men, watch romantic films. Women, don’t expect your man to know your every whim, tell him when he’s doing something right & praise his efforts; he may not know exactly how to do things.
