Fall Festival planning…. We plan to put on an old fashioned fall festival, family fun! I plan on hosting the event here at the store with outdoor, old fashioned games and a meal made from our Oasis Homestead produce, meats and farm products. The date has not been set yet. As of right now I’m looking for vendors that want to set up a table displaying and/or selling their handmade crafts. The theme is- old fashioned, hand made, all natural, crafty things you make yourself. These could be items you simply want to display and share your story with the community, or sell your items. It will be free to set up your table. If I get enough vendors interested, we will plan a date. Some crafty ideas I had were:

No carb Wednesday’s…. how did y’all do with your goals today? I did not do so great. My day started off on a negative note first thing, learning a family member passed away. It was very sudden and shocking. Was hard to stay focused after that. Hopefully, I’ll do better next time or even before then. Last week I actually did no carbs from Tuesday through Saturday. 5 consecutive days was pretty good but I can’t seem to get back on track. How are y’all doing?

Welcome to your NO CARB WEDNESDAY! Don’t forget- no carbohydrates today. Carbohydrates are found in all food items made from grain, all dairy (except real butter), all fruits, all forms of sugar and the 3 vegetables to stay away from right now are Irish potatoes, corn and beans or peas. DO eat real protein all day long. ask yourself: does this meat product come off the animal in this exact form or does it need to be manufactured into this form? If God made it, you can eat it, including the fat and skin. DO eat leafy green and many other green vegetables. Add all colors from the rainbow into each days worth of food varieties. Make the green category the most volume with several options. DO drink your body weight in ounces of water all day long. Add ACV or lemon in your water to help balance your PH and keep cancer at bay. Drink herbal teas also, as you like. No juice, soda, black tea or coffee. Share your no carb meal ideas and let’s help each other make good decisions. Remind yourself WHY we are exercising this discipline- to reduce our insulin load, curb diabetes, stabilize hypoglycemia, lose weight…. What benefit are you looking for while reducing carbs? **Disclaimer: I am not a doctor. This information is strictly for fun and group support.
