The Daniel Plan is based on five elements for lasting change that are found in John 8, Ephesians 4, and many other Bible passages: 1. Lasting change requires building my life on the truth.

The body uses hormones, namely insulin and glucagon, to maintain a normal blood glucose level, but we can help it by eating in a way that stabilizes this level....

Summer is here! Well, almost. During warmer days, I love to substitute omelets and scrambles with refreshing smoothies and other cold breakfast meals.
