Good morning from Sunny Perth West Australia,
I have to admit doing Daniels Diet in summer can be a little easier than in winter. Because hot weather makes eating salads easy and a joy. Also the in season fruits are plentiful - from all stone fruits like mangoes, peaches, plums, apricots etc. However in winter of course we can enjoy soups and curries and peppers more, so it does equate out and allows 'any time' as a good time to undertake Daniels Diet. Today i give out 2 cold weather (really all weather) recipes.
Foods From God's Garden
What i always notice when on Daniels diet (and hopefully every day), is that you really appreciate God Garden foods, especially fruits. Why do we think that sugary man made foods are nicer that a beautiful mango or strawberry's for dessert. As i chewed (slurped) into a mango last night, it i could not help but thank God for such a beautiful, sweet food. My thinking at that moment was; 'this fruit is way better tasting than chocolate, candies, cookies etc'. The point is that when you are addicted to a food like chocolate it seems to taste the best ever food ( and yes i have been there in my past) and you think 'it tastes so good, how can this be harmful'. Yet when you are eating properly or on Daniels Diet our taste and thoughts change, we enjoy the natural foods far more than the processed ones and you feel so much better after eating it as well.
We have a choice; to keep eating and enjoying the foods God created or go the man adulterated food way and let our taste buds become perverted to 'harmful' and addictive foods, that will cause us to want to eat more and more of them and eventually cause problems sooner or later. Daniels Diet allows you to break the cycle of addictions and food intolerance's. It allows your taste buds to change and enjoy healthy foods.
My secret Breakfast Recipe - Philip's Coconut - Millet and Berry Porridge.
- First i get a pkt of organic millet and cook enough for about 4-5 days. Cooking instruction should be on the pkt. I place it in the fridge.
- Breakfast time - I heat some of water and add 1 tablespoon of Quinoa, 1 tablespoon of polenta and 1 tablespoon of diced Coconut. Plus pumpkin and sunflower seeds (can be any seeds).Then as it boils i add in what ever amount of the already cooked millet that i fancy. Stir to the consistency you like then - add Frozen berries just before you finish cooking to melt the ice off them and stir into porridge just a little to get the flavor into the porridge but not over cook them. All this take less than 5 minutes.
- Cooking time is up to you but just enough to make the porridge go a little think. Also you get used to the quantity after one or 2 tries. You can use almond milk if it is pure to make it more creamy.

God…“Who pardons all your iniquities; Who heals all your diseases.” (Psalm 103:2)
Have faith that healing and weight loss are taking place inside you right now and more and more every day. No matter how big or small a problem you now have, through Jesus all healing is possible. Keep praying and believing. You are working with Jesus now and not against him (meaning your diet and lifestyle).
You are doing your part to enhance healing to your mind, body and emotions, ask and trust God to do the rest. Remember this diet is based on His Word, The Bible.
have a great and blessed day
