I read a great 2-part series on balancing nutrition and priorities from Passionate Homemaking that I want to share with you:
- "With the bombardment of choices for us mothers to make in regard to our health and nutrition at the table and in our lifestyle, it is becoming more and more difficult to keep a proper balance between our pursuit of nutrition for the health and wholeness of our family and the reality of what we can truly manage. I have been noticing an increased obsession with health and food in my generation that has been concerning, especially among young mothers. We don’t realize that something is being sacrificed at the idol of health." Read the rest of part 1 here.
- "Pursue health and wholeness first and foremost through Jesus Christ! I encourage you to make healthy food and lifestyle choices, use whole grains, natural sweeteners, and food as close to the original source as possible, but don’t become enslaved to it. Try not to go to the opposite extreme of abandoning all and making yourself sick, but rather do not worry... Do your best with the resources God has entrusted to you, guard your heart against fear, and enjoy the freedom you have in Christ!" Read the rest of part 2 here.
