Black Bean Salad with Fresh Corn, Red Peppers, Avacado, Cilantro and Lime I Pinned It! I Did It!


Today's lunch! 

Thursday we started a Daniel Fast with our Church.  Thursday night we had plain pears, plain corn, and plain steamed broccoli.  Then, I found out we can be creative.  We found this recipe on onceuponachef.com and modified it for the fast.  I found information about the Daniel Fast, a 21 day partial fast, at The Ultimate Daniel Fast blog.  That's where I found the lists of do's and don'ts for food.  It's not nearly as restrictive as I first thought.  Mainly, we're staying away from meats, dairy and other animal products, white flour, yeast and leavening, and any kind of sugar, honey or sweetener. 

During this time, we are consecrating ourselves to the Lord and consecrating 2012 to the Lord.  I am also reading the Bible with Professor Horner's Reading Plan.  It's basically ten chapters a day in ten different places.  It's quite a challenge to get the reading done.  It's an even bigger challenge to get my reading done for my book reviews!

Happy New Year everyone!
Maybe this is the time for you to consecrate yourself to Jesus Christ, too.

  1. This dish looks delicious and nutritious, too! I would also think it is not expensive to fix for a larger family...black beans (or any beans for that matter) are inexpensive and high in protein. I can't wait for cilantro again this summer :) Thank you for sharing with us at Deep Roots At Home, dear Laura Lane!

Hello! I love it when you all talk back!
Your comments have helped me through the hardest time of my life.
Thank you!

I read all the comments I receive. I answer as many as I can.

Right now, I am undergoing radiation treatments, healing from breast cancer surgery on October 20th, and dealing with the side effects of chemotherapy.

I'm having a hard time replying to all the comments. Please understand if I do not answer. This is all new to me.

THANK YOU SO MUCH FOR PRAYING FOR ME!!!
I treasure your prayers and your comments.

If you have a question, or you need a response, be sure I can reach you by email or subscribe to the comments. I will try to answer each question and request. It just may take me some time.

Be blessed!
Laura
