Happy Wednesday everyone!
Ash Wednesday to be exact! Did anyone celebrate Fat Tuesday?
I did…in my head. I thought about it but I have so much work right now that I don’t have time to actually go out, have a beer and some fried pickles or whatever else during the week!
I did, however have this yesterday 🙂
First you Take these ingredients
1 scoop of berry amazing grass
1/2 scoop of NuStevia
1/2 c orange juice
1/2 c Coconut milk (vanilla 🙂 )
2 frozen banana chunks (prob equal half a banana)
4 frozen mango chunks
4 frozen papaya chunks
Throw it back on the Magic bullet
I didn’t grow up in a catholic home, but we did always take part in lent. WHether we went through with the full challenge or not, as a child I always have chosen something to “give up” for lent.
This year I’m going to dedicate at least one day a week to eating nothing but raw, vegan foods.
Why this is a challenge:
I will have to take the time to research different cooking methods.
It will be frustrating because:
I have never cooked vegan meals before.
I am going to learn so much about myself through this.
My LOVE for the Lord will grow more and more because any time I get frustrated with this I will say a prayer to HIM for strength to not get frustrated.
I already eat gluten free and for the most part dairy free, but I LOVE cheese. So my other challenge will to be GF and Dairy Free the ENTIRE time.
This WILL be frustrating. Learning how to control myself around temptation will be such a wonderful learning experience for me.
Another Challenge, not food related:
Take 5 minutes out of my day everyday to meditate and thank God for everything I have been so blessed with. I have found myself lacking in this area recently. I blame it all on being busy, but that’s not excuse. No matter how busy I am I can always take a few minutes out of my day to show Him appreciation and gratification for EVERYTHING He has blessed me with 🙂
Do you participate in lent?
If so, what are you “giving up” or challenging yourself with?
Why do you participate in lent?
This is my lunch for the whole week ( i had it yesterday, I will have it again today, tomorrow and Friday):
buckwheat and sweet potato soba noodles with WF Spicy Peanut Sauce, Kale, Collard green and spinach, summer squash, tomatoes, garlic, jalepeno
*Braids and Red lips 🙂

Have a wonderful week everyone!
