Preventing Strengths from Becoming Our DownfallInteresting even if it is maybe referring more to a "testimony of Jesus." Back to food, though.
Today on the FB one of the pages I "like" shared a really cool article also about "moderation." Apparently it's not just the Mormons that like to talk about it. I think what I liked is how it explained the exact phenomenon I have experienced: my supposed moderation of the past 30 years wasn't really moderation after all, but now I may be truly practicing it. Maybe. The honest truth is, though, the holidays were terrible. We totally ate way too much dairy and sugar. First there was a niece's wedding which involved a road trip. Then there was Christmas which involved homemade treats. Then there was New Year's which involved a few parties. Maybe now I can be more disciplined. I still get major chocolate cravings and sneak a handful or two of chocolate chips when I'm near them. I know - I should just get rid of them - but sometimes treats need to be made for others. Or something. Anyway, here's a link to the article. I really liked it. I really like the author, too. He does a good job of advocating for a plant based diet. I watched a few of his YouTube videos and liked his style.
What do you think? Any plant fans out there besides Tracie?
