About a year ago I shared a post about unforgiveness and the effects it can have on your health. This past week a friend of mine had her most recent book released. “I Forgive You, But…” by Karen Jensen Salisbury. I have read other books by Karen and have found them to be very inspiring. Karen has a unique gift for sharing real-life stories that we can glean inspiration from while weaving in biblical truths to encourage each of us on our journey to healing. I have also had the privilege of hearing her speak in person; she is funny, down-to-earth, and very inspiring.
Fermented foods are among humans oldest attempt to preserve food. There has been a resurgence of fermenting vegetables due to the numerous health benefits. Sauerkraut (fermented cabbage) was mentioned in early Roman writings; it has a long history. Sauerkraut contains high levels of dietary fiber, as well as significant levels of vitamin A, vitamin C, vitamin K, and various B vitamins. It is a good source of iron, manganese, copper, sodium, magnesium, and calcium.
June is Great Outdoors Month. The aim is to encourage more people to get out and enjoy the world around them. If you enjoy visiting national parks, I would encourage you to take a trip to Bryce Canyon National Park in southern Utah.
It is May in Minnesota, the days are getting longer and warmer. We come out of our winter hibernation ready to be outdoors doing something, anything! We are ready for adventures. Have you ever thought about the importance of adventure?
In today’s fast-paced lifestyle, it can be difficult to enjoy a relaxing meal. Instead, we inhale our food on the run, in the car, or in front of a screen. Most of us probably don’t even think about chewing our food; it is just a habit once the food hits our mouth.
How important is it to chew our food thoroughly? Does it really matter?
Yes, it is extremely important; it is one of the first steps in your digestion process. The way you chew your food, and how well you chew your food, can significantly impact your health.
