    This year for Lent (yes all of Lent lol not just the 21 days) i have decided to do the Daniel’s fast omitting table salt. It has been very hard but i’m on week 2 and i have lost 4 lbs and my sugar level has gone down when i check it in the mornings. I am a diabetic by the way! I do not crave sweets but i miss salt!!! wish me luck in my journey! :)

    I am doing a lot of research and preparing myself to start this February. super excited.

    quick question though, am i able to make protein shakes? like if it’s just raspberries, ice, water, collagen powder, and the protein powder.

    or at least protein pills?
