A Time....... November 2016

Ecclesiastes 3: 1-15 (NKJV)

Everything Has Its Time

To everything there is a season,
A time for every purpose under heaven:
A time to be born,
    And a time to die;
A time to plant,
    And a time to pluck what is planted;
A time to kill,
    And a time to heal;
A time to break down,
    And a time to build up;
A time to weep,
    And a time to laugh;
A time to mourn,
    And a time to dance;
A time to cast away stones,
    And a time to gather stones;
A time to embrace,
    And a time to refrain from embracing;
A time to gain,
    And a time to lose;
A time to keep,
    And a time to throw away;
A time to tear,
    And a time to sew;
A time to keep silence,
    And a time to speak;
A time to love,
    And a time to hate;
A time of war,
    And a time of peace.

The God-Given Task

What profit has the worker from that in which he labors? 10 I have seen the God-given task with which the sons of men are to be occupied. 11 He has made everything beautiful in its time. Also He has put eternity in their hearts, except that no one can find out the work that God does from beginning to end.
12 I know that nothing is better for them than to rejoice, and to do good in their lives,
13 and also that every man should eat and drink and enjoy the good of all his labor—it is the gift of God.
14 I know that whatever God does,
It shall be forever.
Nothing can be added to it,
And nothing taken from it.
God does it, that men should fear before Him.
15 That which is has already been,
And what is to be has already been;
And God requires an account of what is past.


 I wanted to start my Blog Post for November 19th, 2016 this way  because I feel it speaks very true to its word for me in regards to " And a Time "  "Gods" Timing " ,Not my own , It has been a very long hard road for me but God has seen fit for me to travel in it so in that I rejoice because He has always and will ALWAYS be with me !!
    I am praising God to the highest as After 20 yrs of deep suffering and anguish I have finally found THE KEY  part of my "Medical Puzzle piece " .........................................

JoAnna Gluten Free's Chef's Soulful Recovery Soup

JoAnna Gluten Free's Chef's Soulful Recovery Soup (Or JoAnna's Indonesian Recovery Soup


This soup is amazing, healing and also very kid friendly! As a mom of 4, my kids love it. It gives you so much of an auto Immune boost when you are feeling down, getting sick or already really sick.
. There is also a Paleo/Gaps Version ( pretty much omit the pasta and if wished used sweet potatoes) .

I am improving a smaller portion recipe so double it for a fuller stock pot. Use ORGANIC ingredients when possible!

5 to 6 cups of Homemade Stock (here is a link to mine): Homemade Stock and Remouillage
3 Tab of Olive oil or Bacon Grease

3 cups of Left over Roast Chicken OR 2 chicken breasts
1 whole onion (optional; we don't use)
2 inches of fresh ginger
1 inch of fresh turmeric 
1 nice bunch of fresh parsley 
1 nice bunch of fresh thai basil or regular basil 
6 stalks of celery
3 to 4 huge chard leaves
5 large carrots 
6 garlic cloves 
2tsp of dried turmeric
1Tsp of Cumin

3 to 4 green onions (for topping)
sea salt and fresh cracked pepper 
*If you are not grain free, add 1 and 1/2 cups of dried pasta shells or noodles, whichever you like to use. Tinkyada is my favorite brand. You may also use sweet potatoes :)

First I do all the prep by cutting up all of the veggies and herbs.

Take a Medium Stock Pot and add your grease or oil. Add the carrots, celery and onion if used. Steam a bit and add salt and pepper.

Next you'll add the garlic, turmeric, ginger and the dried herbs then add in the chard and already roasted chicken. If you are adding the pasta or sweet potatoes, pour in the broth and turn the stove on high to boil the noodles. If you are leaving the pasta out, pour the broth in and turn the stove to medium to simmer the soup.

When the pasta or sweet potatoes are done (Al-dente PEOPLE!) LOL,
add the fresh basil and parsley and stir. Remove from the heat and cover for 5 minutes.

Get your freshly made gluten free bread and salad with homemade ranch dressing ready and get to eating! 
Oh and don't forget to add the freshly cut green onions, YUMMY!
