WEEEEE! Happy Almost Friday :)
This morning I woke up and made the most wonderful bowl of Pumpkin Oats!
I served them in my Mr. Baseball Bowl, in honor of today's Dodger game! Go DODGERS (Bring it Lauren..LOL..Love you!) I really want the Dodgers to play the Yankees in the world series this year.
- 1/3 c pumpkin puree
- 1 tbsp ground flax
- 1 tsp vanilla extract
- unsweetened cranberries
- mixed unsalted nuts
- 1/4 of Home Made Power Bar
- spoonful of Naturally Nutty
Today I am fasting from meat for my 30 day fast.
“It is estimated that the wealthiest 20% of the world’s population eats about 80% of the world’s meat. A large majority of the grain and corn grown around the world today feeds, not poor people, but cattle, pigs, and chicken, which will then be consumed by the rich. Though meat does provide needed protein, most of us already get twice the nationally recommended amount per day. So, choose beans, eggs, and other staples to fill your stomach these next few days, and pass on the poultry and beef.”
Choosing to not eat meat for a day, is not too hard for me for many reasons. First being I can’t have it in my diet right now, but second I love BEANS and non meat sources of protein. If it was up to me, and Hubby wasn’t such a CARNIVORE I could probably become a vegetarian easily. But for me it’s a choice and many people around the world don’t get that choice.
Question: Could you fast from meat for just one day?
