...and on Day 6 of the Daniel Fast, we found Fast-friendly burgers and fries.

Hi friends! Today has been SUCH a good day. Well, first, let me tell you that Brave is, in fact, an amazingly fantastical cinematic masterpiece and you MUST go see it. Second, Hubby ordered my birthday present (two months) early- a Kodak Easyshare Z5010- and I got it yesterday! He's so sweet, that guy. And impulsive, just like me. I've been playing around taking tons of photos all day.

Another reason why our Saturday rocks is because- as we were waiting for Plato's Closet to sort through my clothes- we happened upon a burger joint called SmashBurger on Roswell Road. It looked like the kind of fancy-schmancy made-to-order place that's both fast and still green. And it was. We loved it! They had all different types of buns and burgers and fries, and I was practically in heaven when I realized I would be able to indulge even while still on the Daniel Fast. I ordered a black bean veggie burger with Smashfries (i.e. fries tossed in olive oil, rosemary, and basil) and oh. my. goodness. 

So good!

The only real difficult time I've been having on the fast is avoiding preservatives and artificial flavors. Everything, even organic stuff, has something man-made in it, so I'm simply doing my best. I don't want to make the fast so much about rules when it's really more about disciplining myself and choosing to eat more of what is good for the body God has given me. And, honestly, it's made me more clear-minded and my Bible study time this week has been nothing short of...hmm...how to word this? Affirming?  Encouraging? Mind-blowing? But more on that later...

I hope you're all enjoying the beautiful weekend!
