I have always had an interest in nutrition, and this was the reason I called my blog groceries and grace.  I always felt it was important to eat healthy foods and I was going to share with the world the importance of eating as naturally as possible.  Eating organic vegetables and dairy, as well as grass fed/organic meat ensures we get the lowest chemical and hormonal  load from our food.  That is, until we came upon hard financial times.  Really hard.

Gone were the organic carrots and butter, the grass fed beef and organic chicken.  These were replaced with fatty mince, sausages, and chemical sprayed vegetables.  I would have to shop from the church’s food relief store, and would have to take what they had. OrganicThis included YoGo, frankfurts, ice creams and white bread. Now don’t get me wrong, I was extremely grateful to have food at all, but I felt I needed to eat healthily to stay healthy.

What was I to do?  Then God gave me a verse:

But you shall serve the Lord your God, and He will bless your bread and your water; and I will remove sickness from your midst.  Exodus 23:25  NASB

The answer was a simple as saying grace before each meal, with intent. And Who was going to remove sickness from my midst?  Well, not the food!  I found this a hard mindset to break, but here I am and still healthy.

Maybe I should have called my blog ‘justgrace’!
