When sweet sugar became a nasty enemy…

Hey my Live Action eaters,

Today I found out some news..

News that is concerning that so many around the world have heard at some point in time.

That news is: “Your blood sugar is off the charts, looks like you have diabetes..”

I want to tell you my story and how to accept this new fight with confidence and faith.

Scriptures to stand on:

No weapon formed against you shall prosper! Isiah 54:17

By His stripes we are healed! Isiah 53:5

There is no name bigger than Jesus (Phil 2:9) and if God be for you than who can be against you!! Romans 8:31

Amen!

Let’s get the story started..

Live Action Quick Tips

Did you know….

Salads composed from even a few ingredients make a nutrient-rich meal. The greens alone have calcium, iron, potassium and B vitamins. Many salad basics, including tomatoes, sweet peppers and the greens, are chock-full of antioxidants. Add high fiber and low calories into the mix and you can’t go wrong including a salad in your daily diet. (healthyeating.sfgate.com)

Eating healthy is a good thing!

My carb loving friends would beg to differ but I promise you that you will feel 100 times better if you incorporate natural foods in your diet.

What are natural foods you may ask?

Basically, if you can kill it or grow it then that is natural.

Let me take that back and even say this in even more detail.

If cavemen ate it, then you should eat it. It’s the best way of living!

Anywho..When I am looking for something healthy,flavorful and fresh it is usually a salad.

Did you know….

Cobb salad was created at the Brown Derby Restaurant in Hollywood.

As with many “how this began stories” We don’t know how much is actual fact, but here is the official story from the Brown Derby themselves.

“One night in 1937, Bob Cobb, then owner of The Brown Derby, prowled hungrily in his restaurant’s kitchen for a snack. Opening the huge refrigerator, he pulled out this and that: a head of lettuce, an avocado, some romaine, watercress, tomatoes, some cold breast of chicken, a hard-boiled egg, chives, cheese and some old-fashioned French dressing. He started chopping. Added some crisp bacon — swiped from a busy chef.

“The Cobb salad was born. It was so good, Sid Grauman (Grauman’s Chinese Theatre), who was with Cobb that midnight, asked the next day for a ‘Cobb Salad.’ It was so good that it was put on the menu.(kitchenproject.com)
