Looking ahead to the New Year!

I hope you all had a wonderful time celebrating Christmas with your family and friends and that you took time out to remember why we actually pause this time of year. It is still the only day of the year when almost everything closes down to observe this day.

I hope that Jesus is a part of your everyday life.... because He is our Life and the giver of Life.

Now we are on the verge of beginning a new year. My hope for you is that the new year will bring you closer to God through Jesus Christ and this for the salvation of your souls.
This is my know Him more. Also, to stay balanced and not allow the things of this world to distract me from my purpose here on this earth. The Bible tells us to, "...Seek first the kingdom of God and His righteousness" Mt. 6:33. May this be our goal for the new year.

I do plan on continuing to blog and post my eats with new recipes as we go into the new year. I may not post every day as I need to make sure that my priorities are in place and I do not rob my family of myself.

Since I began blogging I have consistently maintained a super high raw diet, about 98-100%. This is the best diet for me. Remember that each of us are unique and have differing needs according to our individual health concerns. I encourage you to eat as much organic raw fruits and veggies as you are able and can tolerate. Try to incorporate more of these items into your diet each week and eliminate the processed foods from your diet at a pace that will achieve your success.

Blessings and Peace to you from God above!

clean and slice small portabella mushrooms place in a shallow dish (keep separate from tomatoes and fennel

clean and slice fennel in a food processor very thinly inluding the tops

marinate both with Braggs liquid amino's and olive oil for at least 30-60 mins.

To make pizza's spread cheese onto crackers then top with other mixtures and make sure you get a little juice on the pizza also. Do not let these sit long because the cracker will get too soggy.
