Recently I was a bit frustrated with my weight reduction progress (or lack thereof). I began to wonder if maybe the fat choices I was making were not the best ones for me to release weight. (I know all foods are not created equal and that this goes for fats as well.)
Pearl and Serene talk about virgin coconut oil and how good it is for you. And I think that it has been said that it is better than the refined coconut oil. We’ve had some virgin coconut oil here for a while but I haven’t used it because I didn’t care too much for the flavor.
I realized that the bacon fat, beef fat, and pork fat I’ve been eating probably aren’t the best for me. So in my frustration, I bowed my head and asked God to help me like the foods that are best for me and will help me release this excess weight.
Answered Prayer: Tastes Changing
The other day I had some oatmeal and prepared it the way Pearl calls her ‘sweatpants oatmeal.’ I decided to go ahead and try using the virgin coconut oil melted in the 2-4 tablespoons of hot water. And you know what? I loved it!
So yesterday I made the eggs and hash and used the virgin coconut oil in it. Once again, I really enjoyed it! I even liked the smell of the oil in the jar. I asked my daughter, “Who am I?”
Try Different Things
So I am pleased that I’m trying things I didn’t like before and that I’m liking them too. It gives me confidence to continue to pray about my food choices.
If you are struggling with weight, or health, or exercise, or some such thing, take a moment and ask God to help you with something specific. He always hears us and I am glad that I can see this prayer being answered.
Until next time, God bless,
