Welcome to "Growing in Grace"

 Why did I choose "Growing in Grace" as my blog name, you may ask, well there are several reasons. One reason is that I have a plaque with my name on it, and it says this. My name means, "God is gracious" and he has certainly been gracious to me. At the age of twenty-one God gave me new life by the salvation that comes through Jesus Christ. At that time, He began a "Growing in Grace," process in me that has continued for many years. One of my favorite Bible verses is found in 1 Peter 2:2,"As new born babes desire the sincere milk of the word, that ye may grow thereby, if so ye have tasted that the Lord is gracious."
I love growing in the knowledge of my Lord and Savior.  I also enjoy growing plants and seeing the beauty of them in my gardens, as you can see from the pictures above.
I strive to eat healthy foods that are grown.  Today I would like to share with you a spinach salad recipe that is very simple to make, but will help to grow a healthy body.  


I use organically grown spinach, fresh apples and walnuts. You could also add dried cherries, raisins or cran-raisins. My husband and I like Marzetti's Lite Cole Slaw dressing on it.  A balsamic vinegar dressing made of equal parts of vinegar and maple syrup is excellent as well.


For each serving size I would suggest 3 cups of spinach, 1/2 an apple cut in bite sizes, 1/4 cup of chopped walnuts and dressing to taste.


Mix together and you are ready to enjoy.


Blessings

  1. Jo-Ann, saw your link on Frugal Girls Link Party and wanted to come over and look at your recipe. Looks really yummy. I love spinach leaves when I get salad out at restaurants but never think to grab them at the store. Hoping this recipe stays with me on my next trip so I can try your recipe.
