Grow Food From Scraps

Did you know that 1/3 of all the food globally is wasted? Yes, it is! 1.3 billion tons gets lost or wasted or not consumed. And only a small percentage of that waste can be diverted for composting. Compost will help lessen these waste but did you know that there is a better way to save food? Read on to learn how to grow food from scraps!

Save food and money by planting food scraps. Yes, there are foods that can be regrown from scraps – without starting from seeds. Take a look at what you are throwing away. You’ll be surprised what you can grow. We love teaching our kids about recycled and reducing waste.

First things first. Aside from the common soil where plants grow, there are plants that grow in water and also dozens of windowsill plants from that can be from from vegetable leftovers. Ever grow a potato…

Something WAY Different

Ok so almost all my blog posts are Spiritual in nature and I have no disillusions that I will write anything else on a permanent basis but I thought I would try something WAY different tonight. A little snapshot into my life right now…

As some of you know, my wife and I moved in with her parents to help them out financially so that they wouldn’t lose their home. I mean, its the Jesus thing to do right? So with that said, please understand that I was raised in a extremely strict home when it comes to table manners. No elbows, chew with your mouth shut, you know the drill. There were two things though that would have gotten me slaughtered quite literally at the table which for some reason my in laws do and it makes me die a little each time.

1. Burping and farting at the table.

2 (And this is the biggie); I literally saw my Grandfather almost beat someone up in an restaurant once for this…BLOWING YOUR NOSE. I mean who doesn’t want to see some good ole snot with their food.

I told you this would be different; please help! How do I combat this??

Agape Love,

David

Day 6!

As I begin day 6 of my 88 day journey, I feel a bit like this guy going into the weekend. I always seem to lose control of my eating habits on the weekend. Not this time though, its too important. I will grab my tube and with God leading the way, head into this challenge like never before!

Blessings,

🙏 Real Talk 🙏

Good morning everyone! I hope you all got at least something out of my message yesterday. I know it may have rubbed some the wrong way but often times that is just what is needed. Jesus turned over tables, Paul chastised the Churches for their backsliding, plenty of Biblical examples to show where sometimes a swift kick in the butt is what we need. I know I do! Anyway, thank you all for your support and now for something different…

Your probably looking at the picture above going, “What in the world is this?” Well today I feel it is me. See I am a 46 year old man with a problem; a food problem. I weigh 375 pounds (was as high as 400) and no end in sight to my issue. I have tried everything only to fall backwards again. Low carb, liquid diet, calorie watching, special shakes, blah blah blah I have done it all and up to this last year my body took it like a champ; not any more.

I’m “chemically” great; all blood work and related tests are always normal. However, with all this weight I know my heart is suffering. I can feel it as I walk, sit down, move at ALL, etc. Even more so now with my artificial hip as the recovery process is taking so much longer because of all this weight.

Not to mention I have a Disney trip just 5 months away and I’m scared to death I’m just going to slow everyone down…I just don’t know what the answers are. Some in my life say, “if you want it bad enough you’ll do it”. Well, that usually comes from someone skinny that has never dealt with food addiction and oh, that is total BS. I assure you that I want to lose this weight more than anything in this world right now; there is something that just keeps coming up and my will power sucks. Can anyone relate?

I have been asked to fill in for a local church and give a sermon at the end of the month. All I can think about sometimes is, how in the world are they going to take this fat guy seriously? He can’t even be disciplined himself to control his weight! I know that assuming the worst in people but I just can’t help thinking it.

So what now, what do I do? Well, starting to talk about it is the first step I guess and that is why I’m writing this today. Maybe if I confess it with my mouth, God will take over in this area of my life as well. Do any of you struggle with this as well? What has worked for you? I would love to hear from you in the comments below or you can reach me by email at damar19911996@gmail.com

Have a great Sunday my friends,

In Christ,

David
