How can a Meat & Fruit centered diet, plus faith & forgiveness change your life?
In a nutshell, because you need to eat simple, basic real food to enjoy good, or fruitful health ~ free of infirmities, premature aging, and chronic ill or dis-ease.
Additionally, as I have discovered first hand, having a really great, fruitful life requires more than just a healthy, balanced diet.
We need to feed our mind and spirit with nourishing 'food' ~ not just our body!
Our Meat & Fruit + Faith & Forgiveness formula encompasses many factors we believe are fundamental to living a fruitful life.
Hi! My name is Tracy Matesz, wife and co-author/coach with my husband, Don Matesz. Welcome!
I hope to inspire living a healthy, fruitful life by sharing our own experiences, some helpful resources, and our favorite simple and delicious meat & fruit recipes!
My husband specializes in nutrition, functional medicine, and safe and effective bodyweight and X3 Bar Strength Training. You can visit his website here.
The Food & Faith theme was birthed as a result of decades worth of experience with a multitude of diets, therapies and spiritual practices and all the associated ups and downs that I / we now understand were the consequence of living out of divine order.
Having paid the price, we are both passionate about illuminating a far more direct path through that narrow gate that we know ourselves, few will find.
First and foremost, we want to see people get strong and healthy.
We have tried everything, and absolutely love and endorse our Meats & Sweets, or meat & fruit approach. It's biblically sound, and neither devoid of animal foods, nor plants, nor requiring special expensive ingredients or super foods. We help you find your sweet spot of protein, carbs, and fat as well ~ though direct experience!
In addition to getting your temple-body in great shape with a meat & fruit centered diet and safe fitness training, we encourage harvesting 'the fruit of the Spirit' ~ to experience a peace that transcends all understanding as Paul wrote in his Epistle to the Philippians:
"Do not be anxious about anything, but in every situation, by prayer and petition, with thanksgiving, present your requests to God. And the peace of God, which transcends all understanding, will guard your hearts and minds in Christ Jesus." ~ Philippians 4:6-7
My entire life has been focused on overcoming! While challenging ~ with a trail of disappointments and regrets ~ it has helped me be here today offering all that I learned to help you! I now thank God for every challenge and loss I ever endured.
I'm in my late fifties, and transformed my life (and health) with food and faith ~ meat & fruit plus faith & forgiveness.
I can help you find your way through the narrow gate as well. While it's not up to me, it's up to you...I have a flashlight and can help illuminate your way. (Meaning I've been there, and I can help you stay on a far more direct course!)
How many people do you know that are truly at peace? Even very wealthy people lack peace of mind and heart!
How many people do you know are content with their body, weight, looks, relationships, family, jobs, finances, and life in general.
Most of us are plagued with mental torment ~ worry, anxiety, fear, remorse, frustration, anger, resentment, self-pity, and endless stress. I know I was, and still work at rebuking these debilitating, energy draining habitual mental / emotional habits ~ SOS!
We have been 'trained' to acquire things to fill our voids, but it never works. It can't. Things can't fill our spiritual voids. Only a change in our entire operating system can do that!
The 'Secret' ~ laws of manifestation ~ may help you manifest what you desire (or rather think you desire) ~ yet once the high of manifesting wears off, you will be looking for the next 'thing' to acquire! It's endless because those ego desires are insatiable!
There are very real reasons that we are all suffering ~ individually and collectively. It's a disconnect from our Source ~ God ~ and transgression of His laws! That is made very clear throughout the Bible, and throughout our history!
The ultimate power to transform and heal your life begins with your sincere desire to change. The biggest obstacle for many people to overcome is the resistant, obstinate nature of our mind, or ego. It does not want to be subservient to anything!
"Because the carnal mind is enmity against God: for it is not subject to the law of God, neither indeed can be." ~Romans8:6
God created us to be healthy, strong and fruitful, not weak, immobile or unproductive. We are meant to experience peace, love and joy, not anger, fear or hate.
When we relent and surrender and seek God first (Matthew 6:33) all we really need seems to magically appear ~ with far greater grace and ease! Trust the DOS > SOS and you will experience FAITH > FEAR!
God has a plan to usher in His kingdom.
We can be part of His plan to bring His glorious Kingdom to earth. Learning this helped me to feel enlivened with a sense of purpose.
Having a sense of purpose fuels our spirit and gives us all the energy we need to accomplish His great works!
