Ash Wednesday

Wednesday, March 09, 2011

My son has been a pescatarian for a few years. He never eats meat or poultry.
He is healthier and has less stomach problems which are in the family.
So one day at a time I am going to eat vegetables, beans and quinoa and fish this Lent..
I will fast between meals. I have east indian and vegetarian cook books to make it tasty.
My problem is I am pre diabetic and it may be better to eat 5 times a day if I run into problems.
I just wanted to let someone know so I can report how I am doing.
I resolve to post my food. I have been lax lately
I also resolve to get to 6:30 Mass every week day before my walk.
No early Mass on Saturday.
I pray that I will be taking care of my physical but also my spiritual needs.
Thank you for the support. Maria
PS I will be publishing copies of the recipes that are particularly good.

    It's nice to hear that Lent inspires you to try something new. I always take advantage of Lent as a time to give up something that I have been struggling with. This year has been extremely hard. I have already given up soda, and I gave up wasting time on soap operas and this year all I can do is give up those addicting girl scout cookies. What I really want this year is to take time to do something for myself. I am going on a mom's retreat to help me get on my journey. Keep us posted on your quest for health!

    Please let me know how it goes. I wouldn't mind going vegetarian, but my husband would never go for it. I'm also a lousy cook, so I am dependent on him. Good for you about church. If you have a good church it can make a huge difference. Good Luck and keep me posted!

    Best wishes for a successful lenten challenge.
I am always here for you and I look forward to hearing your recipes and experiences.

I have tons of cookbooks so if you want to browse, just give me a call and we can go through some of them together.
