make my own Bisquick, they informed me that it already came in a box, and so on and so forth. I actually was put on the defensive. let me first start by saying that I think that you are no better or worse of a person if you buy bisquick from a box or the off brand for that matter. But I choose to make my own. It's easy, I can make it with whole grain flour (yes still shortening) but I know what's in it instead of chemicals, and to be honest, I've never looked at the side of the box (until today) to see if there are any words i can't pronounce.
I am trying (though you'd never know this week) to bring healthier choices in our house, and I'd even like to learn to make granola bars instead of buying them, if you have a recipe that's good, please send it my way. Sometimes it's simple things like changing from white flour to whole grain white flour or making your own Bisquick, or buying more fruits and veggies and less process stuff. I think (totally my opinion here) that sometimes a gradual swing is better than going hog while.
And what's funny as it just occured to me... when we sin sometimes it's a slippery slope that at first it seems gradual and then before you know it, we are a mess, well, maybe it can be that way for the good stuff too, if we get used to eating better we will make better choices and pretty soon better choices is the majority of what we do.
Yesterday I was kind of put on the defensive about stupid bisquick, but sometimes its our faith that we need to defend. In our lives a lot of things come at us, and in Romans 12:2 it says Do not conform any longer to the pattern of this world, but be transformed by the renewing of your mind. Then you will be able to test and approve what God's will is—his good, pleasing and perfect will.
I think there are lessons in all things, and yesterday/today, it was Bisquick.
