I'm doing low carb. So I'll take the fish... but no bread. Sorry.

All protein? All meat? That's my bro.. ! Laugh

Hi Tom glad you are well. 🙂

See, the reason I ask is that I've had encounters with something claiming to be Jesus but gave off a feeling that was not expected. There was no message that I understood from these somethings other than peace, love, and bliss. The first time, it was not long after reading the gnostic gospel of Thomas, and I was terrified by it. Today, people who say they saw Jesus in a vision are put away. I know, it happened to me several times. The doctor would ask: do you still hear the voice of God, and I would eventually learn to lie and say no, but it seriously felt like they were trying to break me with their science and their pills.

How do you know?
It's definitely a possibility I considered.

Thanks Sandra! And I'm glad you're still around here! I missed you, girl.

My wife and I are getting really creative with our low-carb recipes. We're making guilt-free food that tastes so good, I'm really tempted to put a business plan together and try to get a government loan to open up a low-carb restaurant.

But no, not all meat. In fact last night I enjoyed a big salad with high-fat bleu cheese dressing and colby cheese cubes, cucumber, celery, onion, and garden-grown tomatoes. It was heavenly.

I wonder if Jesus would seem like an ancient alien or what.
In the end, it matters not the name of this presence.

Sounds like something I need to take up. This winter I packed on the pounds. I must have gained 15 pounds but my goodness I love food and winter I'm not as physically active.

That salad...oh I'm hungry now. Seems like a good idea Tom. Tonite I also had a salad. Grilled chicken taco salad, was really good but not as healthy. I always wonder if the low carb thing works. But my 2 favorite foods are meats and breads I couldn't give up bread. 😕

you can be a low carb vegan if needs be..it's more about simple vs. complex carbs..glycemic index stuff
grains got us, get us through the rough years when we just need sugar to survive and burn..but when times are good..you have to keep an eye on your carb intake (I should follow my own advice more, here..lol)

wonder if Paul or Jesus were low carbers
