My personal Bible study this year is written by John MacArthur, and today's lesson was on the Ten Commandments. MacArthur makes an interesting statement, "People make a serious error when they speak about breaking the Ten Commandments. History amply displays the fact that people persist in breaking themselves on the Ten Commandments. They represent God's absolute and unchanging standard."
As I thought about it, I realized how true that statement was about natural laws as well. A frequent theme among us bloggers, and among contributors on the Forum is how we feel when we eat avoids. We are breaking ourselves on physiological laws.
If I eat pizza, do I hurt Dr. D'Adamo? No.
Do I hurt the rules and principles of the BTD? No
Do I change the way my body is made or how it reacts to food? No.
I don't break the rules, I break myself on the rules.
On a lighter note, I made the best turnip greens I've ever made. When I make ghee I make it in a spreadable form that I call my buttery spread. If you missed that blog, it's in the archives under "Ghee that's good." I made a new batch of ghee this week. Before I add the oil, I strain off the salt and milk solids.
I never knew what to do with what I've strained off. The salt is neutral, as are the milk solids. I only strain them because they are unsightly in my spread. And there's a substantial amount of tasty ghee mixed in. At the same time I was making the ghee, I was cooking turnip greens. So impulsively I dumped the strainer into the turnip greens.
Oh man, it was delicious. I had to stop myself from eating a third helping. I ate the leftovers for lunch the next day. It was as good to me the second day as it was the first. I have not tried this on my family yet - they sneer at turnip greens. But, next time I will see if I can coax them into trying a tiny taste.
