  1. I posted the chart and then tried to do an update but it timed out. So I want to add the following info: NOTE: Dr. Axe says stay away from "Gluten Containing Grains" as they are not like they were in the Bible days (they are now made in the lab) meaning they have been altered from the way Jehovah made them. The chemicals currently being used in the foods we used to eat with no problems are now wreaking havoc on our bodies (research "gmo foods"). I've never had any issues with food or allergies. However, since 2015 I have struggled with eating food and digestive issues. It had gotten to a point where I could hardly eat anything. The final straw was when I could hardly walk. After a lot of research I figured out it was gluten/wheat and sugar causing my issues. While I wasn't trying to be on a plant based diet or eat similar to the Daniel Diet I found it worked for my body. I also take a few herbal supplements (vitamins, minerals, things for stress etc.) when I remember . Even though I know how to eat for my health it's still a struggle. I seem to fall off the bandwagon for a while when I go to conventions and eat out because I have no way to prepare the foods I normally eat. It seems most the foods (packaged foods restaurants buy to prepare their meals) now have chemicals that force us to want the bad stuff. So, the vicious cycle of having cravings for the bad foods start up again and it takes me weeks/months to get back on track. So, if you have ever struggled with trying to eat right, stay on a diet, etc. just know it's not your fault. Last time I went to the Dr. (about 3 years ago) he said to me "you are in your 50's and not on any medications I guess you don't need me". He seemed at a loss and disappointed as he stared at my chart. 😮. I thought the purpose of going to the doctor was to keep me healthy? He didn't seem to think so. 🤕 Finally, Dr. Axe has a video that can be found on youtube just search for Dr. axe Daniel Diet. He does referencing incorporating worship into your day but doesn't go into detail about a particular religion.
  2. Avoiding the possible incorporation of false religion info here is a link to chart of what one can/should not eat on a daniel diet. It's from the Dr. Axe website that deals with natural health.
  3. Watching this video it's clear to me that Jehovah's creation has more personality than we know. I wouldn't have guessed that a fish would like interaction with man. It also reinforces that it will take forever to learn about all Jehovah's creation.
  4. I have the original Brio Air Fryer by Nuwave 3 quart I purchased about 2 years ago. We wanted to cut down on the oils that frying requires and I am gluten free and wanted to finally be able to eat a piece of fried chicken. I love it and used it often to make chicken. However I don't use it anymore because my husband and I stopped eating meat (except fish). When I was using it I didn't use flour and still the chicken was crunchy. I only used flour when I prepared chicken for visitors. They would try it with and without flour and was amazed that the non-flour chicken was crunchy and that the flour ones were gluten free. I would use Bob's Red Mill Gluten Free Flour (the blue label) to prepare the chicken. To prepare chicken in the air fryer I would just pour a little oil in my the bowl the chicken was in and then rub it on the meat. I would then season the meat. People couldn't believe there was no flour and hardly any oil. You do not need to use oil but with flour you may want to add some to the meat's skin then dip in the flour so that it will fry better. I have tried frying fresh potatoes french fries but I didn't like how they turned out. I later read you have to soak them in hot water for a while or boil them a bit, dry them off before frying. I never tried it. It is better to use "frozen" store bought fries and other foods like fish sticks but I don't do store bought frozen fries as it has wheat or soy which I can't eat.
  5. Here's another homeschool curriculum I heard about recently Discover K12 It's says it free. However, if you want a teacher's account to store grades, etc. it cost about $50 I signed up my daughter but since it is so close to the end of the school year I will have her look at it for next year work.
  6. This is not meant to judge anyone that likes to eat at McDonalds and not meant to offend. Anyway, about 2 months ago my husband handed me a monopoly piece that said it was for a free Rouxbe Cooking course he got with his meal. He kept asking me to check it out since he knows how much my daughter is interested in cooking. I kept procrastinating because I felt coming from a McDonald's game it would either be a waste of time or only teach us to make meals we know we couldn't eat anymore (spaghetti, mac and cheese, etc.) Several of us have come down with gluten intolerance. Therefore we are moving toward eating more veggies (with the aim of going more towards a plant based diet). We have already started baking gluten free. My daughter really liked the class we both attended locally that taught us how to cook gluten free baked goods (especially cookies) . I'm finally enjoying having a biscuit again However, I have been looking desperately for an affordable class/course that teaches how to prepare healthier meals that incorporate veggies. Everything I found was for younger kids or Adults. Nothing for teens. Last week I finally went to the website the McDonald's game piece gave to check out the offer since I knew it would be expiring soon. To my surprise they have a class that teaches exactly what I was hunting for. The cooking course is very elaborate (worth around $299 + $4.99 monthly) if we had sign up for the course on our own. They have several course but the course she will be taking is Plant-Based Cooking: Level 1. I'm watching along with her so I can help her. This course can be used towards her school credit. I'm very excited. So all this to say... who would guess that something that is based on healthly eating would come out of eating at McDonald's? Of course, I thank Jehovah for this blessing since we can learn to eat healthier and I don't have to pay out a lot of money we couldn't spare right now.
  7. Recently I learned about a series of books from another witness group I am on. The books could be helpful with Math and History. My kids are going to 9th so they may not be as helpful for them but thought I might get them for reference so I keep the links to them. I wanted to share the titles. Everything You Need to Ace Math in One Big Fat Notebook: The Complete Middle School Study Guide (Big Fat Notebooks) Everything You Need to Ace American History in One Big Fat Notebook: The Complete Middle School Study Guide (Big Fat Notebooks) Everything You Need to Ace World History in One Big Fat Notebook: The Complete Middle School Study Guide (Big Fat Notebooks) They also have one for science (but I was concerned about how much they focus on evolution) so didn't include link. You can find it on amazon yourself and look through the book to see if you can work around the evolution topics. Disclaimer: The 3 links above may contain an amazon affiliate id. If so it would be that from the person that shared the link on the home school group I am a member of. I personally do not make any $$ for sharing the links to these books.
  8. If you've every had a hard time getting out of bed you are not alone!!
  9. Sister Trina, Glad you found the seasoning info helpful. I have used the tasty tables seasoning in almost everything. It does taste salty and gives food more flavor. I have found when it comes to meats I have to put a lot and actually suggest pre-seasoning with it and letting it sit/marinate the meat before cooking it. Anyway, I also found a low sodium cookbook helpful. I love soy sauce so having to give that up was hard. I tried the one in the book and it was actually not bad. They even give alternatives to a lot of sauces and seasonings such as o bay crab seasoning. So it was nice to be able to enjoy steamed crabs in the summer http://www.amazon.com/500-Low-Sodium-Recipes-flavor/dp/1592332773/ref=sr_1_4?ie=UTF8&qid=1449768846&sr=8-4&keywords=LOW+SALT+COOKBOOK NOTE: This is a direct link to the book (not an affliate link). I do not make $$ off of mentioning it. I have a copy and have used it in cooking meals for my family.
  10. This is a really great tasting salt substitute. http://www.bensonsgourmetseasonings.com/saltsubstitute.html The Tasty Tables is also great on popcorn it makes it take like barbecue chips
  11. We school year round. Right now we are gearing up for the annual testing that is required (hopefully completed before our convention) so they can really relax and enjoy themselves without testing looming over their heads. We'll take a few weeks off after the convention so they can enjoy themselves before starting back up.
  12. Some Gluten Free Breads I have tried. Not close to traditional bread but they can be used to make sandwiches. They are made of Nuts so anyone with a nut allergy wouldn't want to use it. NOTE: I use Cashew Flour instead of Almond Flour as it has a milder taste. You just substitute the same amount of Cashew Flour. Bread: http://elanaspantry.com/paleo-bread/ Biscuit: http://againstallgrain.com/2012/01/16/diary-free-grain-free-scd-pale-biscuits/ (I sometime substitute the Coconut Oil for Olive Oil since I don't want too much of a coconut taste to the bread) I double the amount of honey asked for in the recipe. Since the dough is a bit loser than regular bread dough I purchased a whoopie pie pan and spoon a bit in each cavity and pan it with one finger to spread it out. So I get more biscuits than the recipe calls for. In addition to biscuit I use the bread as buns for hamburgers. I also use this recipe to make mini hot dog buns. I just use a twinkie pan and fill each cavity 1/2 way high. They rise and I cut them into and put 1/2 a hot dog inside. Bread: http://livinghealthywithchocolate.com/desserts/paleo-bread-recipe-1739/ I have not tried this one yet. I found it a few days ago and was excited it didn't use coconut flour. I don't like how coconut flour overshadow the taste of some recipes. This one doesn't use it. I plain to make it sometime this week. I will try it first as written. Then I will switch out the almond flour and use cashew flour. I'm not sure about carbs as I don't count carbs but it does help me enjoy sandwiches, burgers, etc. Maybe one of these will work for you.
