The Bible says in 1 Corinthians 6:19 that our bodies are the temple of the Holy Spirit.
The church I go to focuses on health with this acronym: NEWSTART.
T– Trust in God
Checking off each letter of NEWSTART will help us get back on track! Especially with the year ending, and the new year upon us, why not set some New Year Resolutions that will stick?
Here is one of our favorite healthy recipes that my family loves. When my daughter was born 5 years ago, we found out she was allergic to one of the proteins in milk. That was tricky, as I loved cheese and ice cream. Breastfeeding her meant I had to cut out dairy. Thankfully there are alternatives to dairy out there, and they are tasty! Since then, it has been a mission of mine to find recipes that are healthy and dairy free that I can make for her.Dairy-free Mac & Cheese adopted from a combination of dairy-free mac and cheese recipes we have used through the years.
