Bone broths - it’s the latest “buzz” right now – and I have to say I am super happy about it! I’ve known about bone broths for years and truly think it’s one of the healthiest things you can do for your body.

Well-timed, nutrient-dense meals and snacks can help you power through your days with steady energy. Many of us face a personal energy crisis every day. We stagger through the daytime hours, fueled by caffeine and sugar. Our moods swing in tandem with our energy, and cravings drive us to consume foods that only make us feel worse. The daytime slog is often followed by an evening of snacking and drinking that, whether we realize it or not, perpetuates the cycle of exhaustion. ...

“Not by might nor by power, but by my Spirit,” says the Lord Almighty. —Zechariah 4:6 We will not succeed in The Daniel Plan by sheer effort, but by the strength given us in the Holy Spirit. God’s power is made perfect in our weakness (2 Corinthians 12:9). He wants us to rely solely on the power source he provides, the same power by which he raised Jesus Christ from the dead. That death-defying power is available to us on a daily basis. God wants to give us lives full of energy and momentum as we seek him as our power source....

In general, most protein powders readily available to consumers are filled with unnecessary sugars and even artificial sweeteners. Essentially, most are packaged foods and contain a lot of junk – including ingredients that you wouldn’t find in your grandmother’s pantry, can’t pronounce and wouldn’t grow in your own garden....

My counsel is this, live freely, animated and motivated by God’s Spirit. Then you won’t feed the compulsions of selfishness. —Galatians 5:16 MSG Did you know that God gives you the motivation to do what he wants you to do? And that includes getting physically healthy. ...

In this Sweet Potato, Edamame & Quinoa Bowl, I combined a gluten-free grain (quinoa) with a fiber-filled roasted veg (sweet potatoes) and protein (edamame), a pop of color and greenery (scallions), and some crunch and healthy fat (cashews). I topped everything off with my favorite salad dressing of all time plus one of my favorite anti-inflammatory, digestion-loving, heart healthy ingredients – fresh ginger root....

“I read recently that lack of sleep can lead to chronic disease and other problems,” writes this week’s house call. “I have kids, a job with crazy hours and personal stress. I struggle to get a great night’s sleep.” Sadly, your situation has become all too common in our stressed-out, super-busy, hyper-caffeinated, modern world. Among the numerous responsibilities we juggle daily, quality sleep often takes the back burner, and those repercussions show up in our health and around our waistlines. ...
