The ramblings of a woman,
wife, & mother, who loves:
Jesus / my man / the three,
learning about parenting /
mamahood / childbirth,
cooking foods healthy /
international / yummy,
pretending to garden /
write / design,
attempting to run /
exercise / lift weights,
enjoying traveling /
camping / adventures,
finding ways to love /
serve / sacrifice for others.

It is not to say she does these things
with style or grace, or even skill.

Filling the Plate Half Full

August 16, 2008 - 10:46 PM

Our group of friends noticed a common thread of wanting to eat healthy... and knowing it'll taste good... and, let's face it, be inexpensive.  We started this discussion over email and are now trying to turn it into a useable format, ie Lovely Ladies Dish on the Dish

We don't want to be controlled by the food we eat or have it be our major priority in our lives.  We want God, our husband and kid(s) to be our top priorities.  If this (or other distraction thing: tv, olympics, etc.) becomes too big a distraction for any of us, I pray we notice it and take a few steps back and focus on the things that truly matter. 

We do however, want to be wise (and not live in fear) with our bodies (and our families bodies), our time and our budgets (we have been blessed with).

Truth be told, it's new and under construction and an experiment in progress... what fun! 

(And maybe if this works and serves a good purpose, we can get switched to Markup Factory, hooray!)

    I just love this idea! Let me know if you ever want more writers...I would love that! I'll be guest blogging about nutrition at a collaborative blog in October. I'll be posting my menu and recipes, etc. I'll let you know when that'll be! :) Em
