Book Review: Full by Kendal Privette

Every Tuesday I post a recipe for Tasty Tuesday – but today I am veering off from my norm to post a review that is not typically the type of book I would read. The book is titled Full and it came to me via the author herself, Kendal Privette. This book enters the mind of a woman struggling with “ed”, short for an “Eating Disorder”. Ed speaks to her over and over telling her she must not eat, she must exercise, and she is too fat. When I received the book in the mail many weeks ago, I sat […]

Tasty Tuesday: Creative Lunch Packing

Last year I asked my friend Kelly (mom of 4 in photo to the right) to take photos of her packed lunches so we could all see her creative lunch packing! Here is what she had to say to go along with her pictures: This is actually an art form in Japan called “Bento” but I’m not that creative so I just call it “Creative Lunch Packing”. I started doing this last Fall when we began eliminating High Fructose Corn Syrup from our diet and I needed some ideas for my kids lunches. Since pretty much all prepackaged foods contain […]

Fit Friday: Which Food Network Star Am I?

Do you watch the Food Network? Then maybe you can relate to this article below! Women Living Well’s Certified Fitness Trainer – Clare – is back with us today and here’s what she has to say:************************************ The thought occurred to me one day while on the elliptical machine and watching the Food Network, that our eating habits could be categorized by one if not many of the fabulous chefs on the Food Network. I’m not necessarily thinking about how we cook either. There are a lot of factors which figure into our physical make-up, but we can’t negate the importance […]

Weight Loss: Self- Control vs. Gluttony

Proverbs 23:20, 21 say “Do not join those who drink too much wine or gorge themselves on meat, for drunkards and gluttons become poor and drowsiness clothes them in rags.” Gluttony is eating without restraint. I have never been drunk but I see the correlation between the two. They both cause drowsiness and essentially ineffectiveness for God’s kingdom. Proverbs 28:7 declares, “He who keeps the law is a discerning son, but a companion of gluttons disgraces his father.” And Proverbs 23:2 says, “Put a knife to your throat if you are given to gluttony.” That’s pretty harsh isn’t it? But […]

Weight Loss – My Story Part 1

Weight loss – it’s just not a fun thought and yet it sells mega amounts of magazines every month! So obviously it’s on most women’s minds! If you struggle with weight loss I understand. Some who know me may never have thought that I’ve struggled with this (for most of my life actually). I have two beautiful Godly skinny sisters who both wear size zero. I am around a size 5/7 in Juniors (a 2 in Misses). And since about 5th grade I’ve been the “curvy” sister. My curves are clearly from my eating habits that differ from my sisters. […]
