Breaking the Fast

I thought I would share something that may aid you in your Christian walk...how not to break a fast.

A few years ago I broke a fast with Mexican food. Not a good idea. I almost passed out from the carb rush. I thought I had balanced the carbs in the chips with the queso I put on them.

Friday night I broke a fast around 9pm at the church in La Porte. They had a little buffet for us. I thought 4 bite size quiches will be OK, followed by 3 miniature cheese cubes - you know - the more protein thing that failed a few years ago. And after the protein, I am sure eating 2 bite size cheesecake cubes is fine...surely we can put the cheesecake into the protein column. I then drink a Diet Coke for the 1st time in a week, you know - need caffeine for my 50 plus mile drive home. (Can I justify or what!)

On the way home, I thought wow, I think I should have broken the fast with a piece of toast and maybe chicken broth. I know many people are fasting in various degrees the next 2 weeks.

Take my advice do not break your fast with the following:

Mexican Food
Italian Food
An all you can eat buffet
Pizza
Quiche of any size
King Ranch Casserole
Cheese
Cheesecake (not a protein)
Chocolate Pie
Red Velvet Cake
Chick Fil A
Sonic

Have a blessed day sisters, it's time to go to work.

Let us serve the Lord today.

Some good advice. Just the words "carb rush" give me a headache and at the same time beckon me. It's a fine line, a fine line. I justify not fasting a lot myself. I'm just enough hypoglycemic to need to be careful. But as you remind us, we all should be mindful of what we place in our mouths, and what we allow to come out of them, too! Happy Cool Monday to you! Love, Annette

Oooh. Yeah. I try to break mine with vegetable and fruit juices followd by a salad. Then start the next day with oatmeal. But I too have been not so wise and gobbled down too many carbs...I don't do cheese! LOL! Hugs to you!

(as I sit here eating derby pie for lunch. It has nuts in it and I'm sure nuts are okay.)

Karen...we all know nuts fall into the protein category!

Hey Annette, what a cute autumn look for your blog!

I like your new blog look too!
Lol! I guess chocolate cake would also fit into that category.
Have a good week.

I have never done a fast and I feel like the only time I consider it is when I want to lose some weight, so I think it is selfish of me. That's my excuse!! If I ever decide to fast, I know who to come to for advice! Thanks for sharing!
Love,
Angie xoxo
