Relationships!

Relationships are something that is a part of everyone of our lives, and relationships, on all levels, take some work.  The effort you put into any relationship always pays BIG DIVIDENDS! 

If you are resolving to grow in your relationship with the Lord may the words of King David in Psalm 51:1-17 encourage that even in the tough things in life, He never leaves you, He draws closer...

"Going through the motions doesn’t please you,
    a flawless performance is nothing to you.
I learned God-worship
    when my pride was shattered.
Heart-shattered lives ready for love
    don’t for a moment escape God’s notice."

I never cease to be amazed how God communicates with us so personally, earlier today I shared this C.S. Lewis quote on twitter

"All this trying leads up to the vital moment at which you turn to God and say, "You must do this. I can't." - C.S. Lewis

And if that were not enough... He reminded me of the words to a poem my mom always had posted in our house, as I grew up.

I hope that you realize today just how precious you are to God, how much He loves you, and that He hasn't forgotten you and NEVER will.

Christine Avanti on gluten-free diets...do they work? Are they healthy?

Christine Avanti on gluten-free diets...do they work? Are they healthy?

What’s the Story with Gluten Free Diets?

 

Blame Hollywood.  In 2009 svelte starlet Gwyneth Paltrow blogged about her gluten-free Detox, which caused celeb followers to root out gluten in hopes of transforming their bodies.  

 

Gluten is a protein found in wheat, barley and rye.  So a gluten free diet means no bread, no cereal, no pasta, no beer, and no soy sauce (unless they are specifically made “gluten free”).  Because of this new trend the gluten free market is now worth several billion dollars and has increased by 17% in the past 2 years.  

 

Before this g-free diet trend hit the scene, only a few people were eating a g-free diet, those diagnosed with celiac disease, an autoimmune disorder that makes it difficult to digest gluten.  According to a recent study in the Annals of Medicine, more and more people are being diagnosed with celiac (1 in 133 people).  In celiac suffers, gluten causes damage in the lining of the small intestine, causing gas, bloating, diarrhea and headaches.  

 

If you have intolerance to gluten, you would be best to avoid it.  However, if you have decided to avoid gluten to transform your body, be warned that avoiding gluten on a regular basis can cause a vitamin B deficiency, because wheat is rich in thiamine and other Bs.  

Listen here to what Christine had to say.

 

Here is a super mega delicious gluten free recipe from celeb chef and nutritionist Christine Avanti.
