Do you know Sweet Potato may help your gut?

I love sweet potatoes but do you know eating sweet potatoes may help your gut?

Sweet potato is very rich in fiber. Sweet potato also contain antioxidants which helps with cultivating healthy gut bacteria including certain Bifidobacterium and Lactobacillus species. Foods containing 20-33 grams of fiber per day may help with colon cancer and regular bowel movements. So next time sweet potato is on the menu take a helping.

Sweet potato is easy to prepare but first be sure to choose good sweet potatoes. Since sweet potato is a root when you purchase them quite a bit is discarded because the ends have to be removed. So when you are purchasing look for those without too many ends:

There are many great recipes with Sweet Potato :

  • You can peal and boil them. Cut in cubes after boiling and just add butter.
  • You can also cube after boiling and add your favorite sauce I like tamarind sauce.
  • Another great way is to slice and bake in a blend of ketchup, mustard and pepper. Add some Melongene, Green Salad and Baked Salmon.

Gluten Free Dumplings

I thought I would share with you today my tip for gluten free dumplings. You see I love dumplings in my soups and broths but the regular flour sometimes create havoc with my stomach.

If you are like me and love dumplings but suffer with your stomach or can’t digest the regular flour you would love this tip. As a matter of fact Saturdays are soup or broth days. When we order we say hold on the dumplings please. I wish the restaurant/take away eating place would provide gluten free dumplings.

Flour has a way of creating havoc with your digestive system. It is said that consuming flour may lead to arthritis, Alzheimer’s disease, heart disease and even cancer. It is also now being communicated that whole wheat flour elevates your blood sugar, cholesterol and also clogs the arteries. Why then do we consume so much flour?

The bread, the pizzas, pastries, cakes. We can’t do without these but we can explore alternatives similar to this one where I discovered that cassava dumplings is gluten free and works just as well as normal dumplings.

Cassava flour has no cholesterol, gluten free and low in carbs and sugars. Not as sticky as flour, just add water and you have good mix.

You can have a tasty gluten free Fish Broth in minutes.

One name that can save us

There is only one name that can get us through this Pandemic. We have to call on that name. All through out the Bible the Apostles said they were doing everything in the name of Jesus – the one who was crucified. Let us all on that name to break every chain that has tied us to this VIRUS.

So many of us are suffering because one of our loved ones has left this world or we have loved ones who are sick with the virus, or we are out of a job, we do not know how we are going to meet our expenses, we can’t pay the rent, the mortgage or the bailiff is waiting outside to take our car.

We have to call on that name – Come Lord Jesus Come! Now more than ever we need help. No money to be paid, Jesus already paid, no subscription just a few seconds to say and share.

COME LORD JESUS COME! Be Bless and stay safe.


Are you hiding from God?

So many people are hiding from God because either of their brokenness or they want to do their own thing.
I think I may have been hiding from God at one time. You see I was so broken, I got involved in the wrong things and just was too ashamed to get involved with God. There wasn’t much relationship with him, I was doing my own thing.

I wanted my degree, a good job, husband, kids and a big house. God was a, by the way, not much serious thought was given to who he was and much less Jesus. 
Some of you may be just under the radar God is there, just there. 
In reading the gospel about Jonah I want to believe I may have been like that, Jonah did not want to do what God wanted him to do.

What about you? 
We must not forget Saul who was temporally blinded by Jesus and converted to a follower of Jesus Christ. 
We cannot hide from God the breath that we breathe is his. According to the Bible, he breathed into Adam. God is the breath of life. 
I realize that God is real, the burning bush with Moses and all his interactions with Abraham, Joseph, David, and Solomon to name a few. 
Then there is the Jesus bit which you may say happens over 2000 years ago and has no impact now, or when you get a chance after you have all you want you would check him out. 
I was listening to the New Testament reading about the Apostle Stephen and it amazed me to know that Stephen saw Jesus sitting at the right hand of God. Now if you are a dying man, you are being stoned to death would you tell the truth? You are being stoned because you spoke about Jesus yet you are still saying that you are seeing him at the right hand of God. This is just one example of many. 
I believe whatever you do God is there and he would find you. Open and allow him to help you to take your broken pieces and put them back together. There is no greater experience than this love of God.


Sense of Loss

Feeling the sense of loss in the COVID 19 lockdown is natural .

So many people have lost their loved ones and feel such a deep sense of loss. We are confined even though some places have started to open. We are looking for help.

We have not realized that we already have the help we need. Jesus is with us through all things including our sense of loss. In the bible, the two persons who Jesus appeared to, on the road did not recognize him. We need to open our hearts and mind so we could recognize that Jesus is with us.

There is no need to feel a sense of loss as Jesus is there to move us from being frustrated, despair, and fear to being loved and a sense of hope. Open your eyes and heart and recognize that he is there. Look for the ways to be grateful, to see God’s graces and favors in your life. When we go to church and participate in the Eucharist – the breaking of the bread, it is said that Jesus is there but we do not see him unless our eyes are open by faith to see him.

Let us ask God to open our eyes so we could see Jesus – to reach out and touch him and say that we love him. It could be hard if you do not believe but you just have to look around at the beauty and faces of people, listen to the graces and favors they have experienced from God.

Ask God to help you to see – open your eyes. It is said if you believe you would see. So ask for your eyes to be opened so that the sense of loss could be turned into a sense of peace, love, and joy.

How to clear your judgement

Anger and resentment is deadly

Having clear judgement helps us make right decisions as we go about our daily lives. That is our free will to make decisions and getting angry and resentful is also part of life . Things may not go as you planned it or as you want it to be and it is natural to get angry and upset.

Do you know when you get upset your mind is so clogged up there is nothing you can’t do? Some people after they commit a crime cannot figure out what happened. Even people they love so much they would destroy them and not recognize at that point in time what is happening. Some people are so angry that the person they pass their anger on may not necessarily be the person they are angry with, it just happened that that is the first person who crossed their path after the anger built up. They may also be angry with themselves and the anger just keeps building up and you cross their path and bam, as they say ‘all hell break lose’.

So how do you deal with this anger and resentment that has built up inside of you. You can get upset then move on, no tantrums, no yelling, screaming or punching because you recognize that you have to change how you look at things.

Acting out that anger is a different issue. When you are angry such that you want to knock the person you are angry with off the map, or wish that they were dead or some awful thing happens to them then there is a huge problem.

The first thing is any violent action towards the person not only hurts or destroys that person which of course you want to do, but also hurts and destroys you. It mat hurt your reputation, your character and if it reaches the authorities chances are your entire life could be affected. Not only your life but that of your family, and this is huge if you have children.

The second thing is that if you continue to hold this anger it destroys not only your reputation but your body. It is like a form of darkness, a virus or parasite eating you up inside when you see or hear about that person , you relive the entire situation. The nervous system starts to go haywire, you cannot think clearly, your head feels like it is bursting, soon all sorts of illnesses start to show up.

It is not an easy thing to get rid of or even reduce anger and resentment. Some suggestions that help me:

  • take time out for yourself;
  • take time to cry, worry, punch some punching bags but put a deadline on this then move on;
  • break down the issue – what about it caused you to be angry? Is it true or not true. If it is true what can you do about it? If it is not true then forget it and move on;
  • have you realized that the person you are so angry with is going about their life happy as ever and you are there fuming with anger;
  • do you have the guts to be the better person and apologize first, even if you were wrong? Two wrongs do not make a right;
  • seek guidance and counsel. Find a life coach.
  • remember we are all connected, the same God who made that person made you. There would always be some disagreement, but there is forgiveness. If God can forgive you what is keeping you from forgiving the other person.

Forgiveness is so hard to do but it is a choice, you see anything that is good for us sometimes shows up as hard work. We believe that we have the right to strike back when someone tells us something that is hurtful or when they do something to us that is hurtful, but this is so far from the truth. We are a better person when we forgive. Forgiveness and love changes everything. Try it, you maybe surprised.


What is your choice?

There are always choices to make in life, every second, every minute, every day. We cannot get away from it.

It is amazing though that with life there is no sitting on the fence you have to make a choice. I grew up thinking there was grey but as I get older there is really no grey, it is either white or black, light or darkness. However you want to put it, say it or think about it.

Whatever decisions you make daily can take you closer to life or to death. Although we all have to die someday but I am referring to eternal life.

If your image is like mine God is always good and is totally for abundant life then the idea is to try to make the right choices.

This can be very tricky because we go about our day’s activities without pondering or stopping to decide how to make our choices. So life has many tricks and this is one of them, it is your decision because of your free will but God is always there with open arms. Being such a loving father he would never turn his back on you. I can be very indecisive at times but knowing that God is always there for me is a huge comfort.

I have to remember though that Satan tactics are lies and deceit so I have to constantly be on the look out for ways he is using to lead me astray.

I continue to pray that God would guide me in all that I do and I pray the same for you.


People hear what they want to hear

Most people hear what they want to hear. This allows them to avoid difficult truths, not knowing that by recognizing these truths they can take action to correct whatever difficulty there is and live a better life.

What truth that you do not want to hear or that you shove under the carpet? You have been struggling with your life but do not realize that your mother or father went through the same struggles, your Uncle or Aunt had the same issue. Even some family members before them had the same issue. I guess you would say this is coincidence . Have you ever wondered why this is happening to your family? Certainly all these things cannot be genetic. If you would like to learn more about this leave a comment and we would get back to you.

You want to hear the good and nice things but on the side you are frustrated to the max. Take a good look at what you are trying to achieve – where is it leading to? Who would benefit?

Help is always there and comes in various means but sometimes you may have sonblock – Jesus Christ can’t help because you have blocked him off. To get to the good things you have to hear the bad – you have to hear what’s wrong with your life or your family life, and you must want to change.

Your race??????

There is a race mark out for you. The road has already been determined , but the only way to reach your destination is to take the road that God has marked for you . This is for you alone.

No matter what route we choose once we believe in God he would guide us to the right road.

We already have all we need for this race so we need to be open so God could reveal the road.

No tricks just an open mind and heart and God would do the rest.

Allow God’s love to fill your heart and life!
