It's Easy

No doubt it's "not that easy" but so far I've been quite happy with my return to the grain free world of neo-paleo-pseudo-low-carbism.  :-)  Since hitting just over 200 pounds on Saturday morning I have not eaten any grains, no bread, no pasta, no chips, no rice and even no taters.  As of today the scale cheerfully informed me that my weight is now 195 pounds.  What am I eating?  Meat, vegetables and dairy with some fruit thrown in for good measure.  So, it's not really "low-carb" and it's not really "Paleo" but just eating food, whatever I want and as much as I want but skipping those addictive grains!  The only glitch comes when someone wants to be nice and feed me pasta or pizza or something, please don't do it!

On a completely unrelated note, I've been using the Daily Office from the Book of Common Prayer for a little while now.  I have three apps on my phone for the Office, one Lutheran called Pray Now that is based on the Treasury of Daily Prayer, one Catholic called Universalis based on the Catholic Liturgy of the Hours and now The Daily Office from the Mission of St. Clare which is from the Book of Common Prayer.  They are all good but I tend to want to use the office that is connected to the church I'm going to.  I have a physical copy of the Treasury of Daily Prayer and I used to have a small pocket sized edition of the Book of Common Prayer but got rid of back when I abandoned the Episcopal "Church" when they stopped being an actual Christian denomination.  Now that I'm back being Anglican I am back to using the BOC, which I must say I always did prefer to the others.  Since the Anglican Church in North America (ACNA) is working on a revision of the Book of Common Prayer I'm going to hold off on buying a physical copy until they complete that job.

Here is a photo of the Mission of St. Clare, a virtual reality mission... :-)
