I eat right, bless my food, and keep God in control. The effects are endless and it naturally causes me to be close to God.
Do not get me wrong, I love sweets. However, I totally limit them. I also limit gluten and dairy. I try to “clean eat” about 80% of the time. When I eat right, I feel good. My mind is clearer. I can move faster. My reflexes are on fire! I have so much energy too. I feel wonderful. Because of all of these good feelings, I feel closer to God and he gives me a sense of accomplishment.
added benefit of eating healthy~staying fuller for longer periods of time
I want to take care of myself and I rely on God to help me. There are times when I know that I am reaching my limit of 20% blah! Most of it tastes like cardboard anymore, except marshmallows. At this point, I pray that he gives me strength to resist food that is bad for me, aka marshmallows. There are times when the voice in my head says, “eat it, you deserve it.” I want to emphasize, THAT VOICE IS NOT GOD. It is not your loving Heavenly Father. As soon as I start believing that I deserve anything, is the minute I believe I am in control, not God.
I truly believe that asking God to bless my food for the nourishment of my mind, body, and soul; gives me strength. Strength means I will have a clear mind, awesome reflexes, a lot of energy, and a great attitude. The rewards are endless. My choice to eat healthy and my choice to ask for a blessing gives me the same benefits! Double insurance!!! I am living proof this works! I survived cancer twice.
