3. Daily Questions to answer in the “Comments” section! YES, you need to participate….way more fun that way! I will be! Here’s today’s…
1. Daily Affirmation: “This food is nourishing every cell in my body back to health.”
This will come in handy, especially when you don’t love the taste or you’re just plain sick of eating raw. Say this over and over again until you believe it. Also, I think it is important to give thanks to God while I’m eating/ drinking so I will pray quietly sometimes: “Thank You Lord for your creation which heals me. Restore every cell in my body to the healthiest it has ever been.” and then YES- I pray in Jesus’ name. For those who know me, I am not overly religious, but I have a very personal relationship with God. I won’t go on and on about that, but I do believe that Jesus is who He says He is. Did I lose anybody yet? Hope not, because the rest is good stuff.
