Just one thing on my mind...

Sorry, I have been MIA in blogging lately. It's not that I don't have anything to say, it's that I have too much to say.

I'm trying to change my diet, completely. It's really hard for me, but I know I need to. (Hi. My name is Abby. I'm a Sugar Addict.) I've learned a lot. I can now talk the talk but I'm still working on walking the walk.

I've been experimenting in the world of sourdough bread for a couple months now. This week I made Kefir. I'm still not 100% postive what it is exactly, but I understand it is healthy for me (like yogurt, but from a goat).

Back to basics. It's awesome and liberating and fulfilling. AND I love wearing an apron, it instantly makes me happier. Funny.

The scriptures say that God will change our hearts, that we can become new creatures in Christ. I know He can teach me everything. I was being pretty hard on myself, I expected to just wake up one morning a new creature. I was reminded of a scripture story Hyrum and I have re-enacted repeatedly. When the Lord asks Nephi to build a boat, Nephi responds asking, Where shall I go to find tools? Tools. Start with obtaining some tools.
I've been receiving tools for sometime now.

I feel like everyone I know is totally overhauling their diets in favor of no meat/mostly vegetable diets. Maybe I should look into this more.... :)

I am excited to hear how this goes for you, and what you are learning along the way. Any time you'd like to blog about your findings and progress I'd love to hear about it!

I think I might try this! I have been looking for ways to make our family healthier.

How is Ammon liking it? Every time I put whole wheat spaghetti or something similar on the table Andrew groans a little.

It is so hard to move away from my "comfort foods" that I'm so used to having! Slowly we are trying. BTW, you should take off your peanut butter bar recipe and replace with something a little more granola girl like.:)

do you prefer a half apron or a full apron?

I don't know~!
I have a full apron, but it is a little big. The half aprons are sure cute, but I am pretty messy when I cook.
