Oh, For the Love of Food!

“Then the angel said to me. . .’Blessed are those who are invited to the wedding supper of the Lamb!’ “ And he added, “These are the true words of God.” 

Revelation 19:9

apple plateThere are days when I can’t wait to get to heaven.  I can just picture it.  The celebrating! The excitement! The food!!!

Yes, I admit it. I love food. That’s part of the reason I have pounds to spare on my body. But in heaven. . .in my new body. . .Hmmm. . .Maybe mine will be the perfect figure.

I not only love to eat food but I also like to prepare it.  Cooking is something I do just for fun.  My daughter has termed it Recreational Cooking. I gain much satisfaction from planning, preparing and executing a meal. These past few days, I have been reminded of some excellent recipes that fit into a healthy eating plan so from time to time I will be sharing some that I find not only delicious but also satisfying.

Part of the problem in my life is that there are so many events that include eating. Parties, Bible studies, and family outings all seem to throw a wrench in the works when it comes to eating healthy. The following recipe for Crust-less Broccoli Quiche is great for a brunch or lite dinner. For my Weight Watcher friends it is 4 points per serving. I like to substitute spinach or some sun dried tomatoes for the broccoli. Feta cheese goes well with the spinach. I have also made it without the bread and it works well.

 “Eating is not merely a material pleasure. Eating well gives a spectacular joy to life and contributes immensely to goodwill and happy companionship.

It is of great importance to the morale.”

Elsa Schiaparelli

Patty Schell will tell you she’s been writing since she could spell and string words together, but it hasn’t been until recent years she has been able to make it a regular practice. Her role as women’s leader in her local church provided a platform to teach, blog, and now, write. Her latest project, Living NOW series is one that was born from a desire to encourage the women she was teaching to know God through His Word, giving them a practical way to study the Bible for themselves. At present, Patty is a contributor to a variety of web-based publications including Refresh Magazine, Broken but Priceless Magazine, Life Letter Café, and SoCal Voice. In addition, she connects with her readers with regular posts on her two blogs, Girl on Adventure: Embracing the Journey Called Life and The Party’s in the Kitchen: Cooking Up Good Times in the Heart of the Home. Much of Patty’s writing is inspired by the full life she leads alongside her family and friends. She constantly looks for good reasons to gather people together, loves serving her community, and enjoys getting to know new places and cultures. Through these activities and others in life, God reveals His stories of faith, hope and love, and Patty means to tell others about them every chance she gets.
