Healthy oil for cooking!

ama1Hello lovely people, the Holiday season is getting close, christmas lights and decor are already being put up in some places. I want to remind you to eat healthy and make healthy food choices as you celebrate. Here are some of the tips for healthy cooking.

The Truth about Fats – Not all fats are created equal

Heavily processed, hydrogenated “trans” fats used in prepared, packaged foods can be extremely damaging to the body. They can compromise the cardiovascular system, immune system, and contribute to behavior problems. They can also lead to weight gain, skin breakouts, high blood pressure, and liver strain.

That said, our bodies need fat for insulation, vitamin and mineral absorption, and to protect our organs. High-quality fats can steady our metabolism, keep hormone levels even, nourish our skin, hair, and nails, and provide lubrication to keep the body functioning fluidly.

Where to Find Healthy Fats

  • Avocados, olives, and coconuts are great sources of healthy fat, along with wild salmon and omega-3 rich organic eggs.
  • Whole nuts and seeds, and their butters like almond butter or tahini
  • Look for the highest-quality organic oils when shopping. Words to look for: organic, first-pressed, cold-pressed, extra-virgin, and unrefined. Avoid expeller-pressed, refined, and solvent extracted.

How to Use Healthy Fats:

  • For cooking at high temperatures (stir frying and baking), try butter, ghee (clarified butter), or coconut oil
  • When sautéing foods, try organic extra virgin olive oil.
  • Oils like flaxseed, sesame, toasted sesame, walnut, and pumpkin seed are best used unheated in sauces or dressings.

Have a happy Holiday!

A life of Purpose!

One of God’s great gift to the body of Christ was called home together with 8 other people yesterday, November 9, 2014. Dr. Myles Munroe was a great leader, teacher and an apostle of God’s word. I was privileged to sit under his teaching some years back at a youth and singles conference”Sex, Lies and your Soul” in Ibadan, Nigeria. I was really impacted and blessed through the teachings at that conference and I understood more about living a life of purpose. Some of his books that have blessed me are “Understanding the purpose of man, Understanding the purpose and power of a woman, Marriage 101 & Myles Munroe on leadership”.  I hope to read more of his books as well. We do not mourn as those without hope, for to be absent in the body is to be present with the Lord. Dr. Myles Munroe will be sorely missed by the entire body of Christ. May the Lord comfort, strengthen and uphold the family and church he left behind. After all is said and done, what will be said of you and I?  If you have not been living a life of purpose, it is best to start now. Ask God to show you His purpose for your life and ACT ON IT!!. Do not delay, the whole world is waiting for your manifestation. Someone’s life and destiny may be attached to that gift that God has blessed you with. What are you doing with those gifts? Activate your God-given potentials and begin to ACT!… Imagine if Dr. Myles Munroe did not understand his purpose, or he knew what God wanted him to do and he did not do anything about it? I encourage you today to start fulfilling God’s purpose for your life. Don’t let what people say or their actions stop you.

Sing to the Lord

 

Lyrics:

Righteous Ruler of the heavens
Holy, holy, our God
Sovereign Lord of all creation
Holy, holy, our God
Every tribe and tongue
Lift your voice as one
He is greatly to be praisedSing to the Lord, oh my soul
Let the heavens shout for joy
Great is our God
Great is our God

Nations come and bow before Him
Holy, holy, our God
Angels sing now and forever
Holy, holy, our God

Every tribe and tongue
Lift your voice as one
He is greatly to be praised

Sing to the Lord, oh my soul
Let the heavens shout for joy
Great is our God
Great is our God

The heavens shall declare
The glory of our great God

The heavens shall declare
The glory of our great God

The heavens shall declare
The glory of our great God

Jesus King, let us adore Him
Holy, holy, our God

Sing to the Lord, oh my soul
Let the heavens shout for joy
Great is our God
Great is our God

Great is our God
Great is our God

Awesome God

Hello lovely people, the Faithful One has done it again and has brought us to the 11th month in 2014. Isn’t He awesome? Let’s give Him quality praise for the gift of life. We are getting close to the end of the year 2014. May the Lord crown this year for us with His goodness,amen (Ps 65:11). You may be at the point of giving up because you think the year is almost gone and you have not achieved your goals or some of your prayers have not been answered. I want to encourage you with these words as I do the same “don’t give up on your dreams and don’t give up on God”. He  who made the Heaven and the earth has not forgotten you. Remember that every winner, every King, every soldier, every President, every successful person has had the urge to quit but they didn’t. That was why they won eventually! Winners don’t quit and quitters don’t win. Your glorious and best days are ahead of you, keep moving on and DON’T QUIT OR STOP until you win. Keep praising Him as well, as your praises go up, more blessings are released to you. Have a fulfilling month of November.
