Update on Us

Well we have been doing well with trying to eat healthier meals.  The cookbooks I have been using are great. I sometimes will substitute ingredients like if the recipe calls for sour cream, I use the light version or I reduce the amount of salt called for in a recipe. We also are losing a little weight. Yay!!

I highly recommend  the cookbook Healthy Choices available from Carlise Press the publishers of Keepers at Home.  As a mentioned in an earlier post this cookbook uses no sugar, white flour or artificial ingredients. When the idea for this cookbook came out a few years ago, I thought how yucky! I had envisioned cardboard tasting food. Boy was I wrong! The recipes are so good!
The number  to order one is 1-800-852-4482. And while you are there get a subscription for KAH. One year for four issues is $14.00.
I don't get paid for the recommendation. I just want to offer these two great resources.
I will try to post a couple of recipes we tried in a later post.
Blessings to you all!

Tim's Heart Attack

I shared last week my husband had a heart attack and since then I find my faith has been shaken. My mind is full of what ifs. What if Tim had died? What if he has another heart attack?
I know the Lord is watching over us. I know it was the prayers of family and friends who got him through this.

Needless to say, his heart attack has changed our lives forever. It has caused us to reevaluate our eating habits. Now this is not going to be easy. I bought a couple of Christian healthy cookbooks from the company that publishes Keepers at Home magazine. One is called  Healthy Choices which is full of recipes from Keepers at Home subscribers and the other one is Good and Healthy Cooking by Amanda and Marie Stoltzfus. Both cookbooks have recipes with no sugar, white flour and no artificial ingredients.
So begins my quest for a healthier family.
