If we’ve learned anything from the last two years, planning is good and all, but sometimes the unexpected happens that changes our course. For me that included the following:
Oh and all of this happened in the last 2-3 weeks. However, sometimes our plans change in a different direction than we expected in a good way. In my case, I wasn’t able to host the Daniel Fast Challenge like I did last year, but I’ve been able to help folks in other ways.
Though I had other plans in mind, God is still able to use my situation to help those around me to be able to grow closer to Him and have options to eat for their family. We can get so caught up in what we had in mind or planned that we miss opportunities that are right in front of us that have a greater purpose.
It’s easy to worry about what could have been like that dish you planned to make and miss the fact that your first thought might not be the best option or could leave you tired or overworked. And most importantly, give yourself some grace if things don’t turn out as planned. Sometimes what ends up happening is better than expected.
Now, because it’s been a minute, I want to leave you with an option for dinner with a twist. Tonight at 6:30, I’ll be doing a live cooking demo with Calvary Baptist Church of New York over on their Facebook Page. We’ll talk about how to modify your meals for those in your house who decided they’re no longer eating what you serve without having to make an entirely new meal. My Amazon Best Seller will also be featured as I make a plant based, Daniel Fast approved meal.
Tune in here.
As a self taught culinary creator, Chef Ashley decided to take her love of food to the masses by launching her brand that focuses on ways to be "healthyish", simplifying meal time, and dispelling the rumor that delicious food has to have tons of salt and fat. She believes that meal prep isn't just for the super health conscious and that it can help us all to take back the hours stolen by our kitchens. She began her meal prep journey as a way to save time and energy, but ended up finding a calling.
