Saint Andrew

How this Fast Diet Lifestyle works: Eat these meals tomorrow. On Monday, eat the meals that will be posted on Sunday.  Eat sensibly the other days of the week.  That’s it.  Simple way to lose weight and be healthier.

Tomorrow will be the Feast of Saint Andrew, identified as the first Apostle.  He began life as a fisherman on the Sea of Galilee until a life-changing invitation to join Jesus of Nazareth in spreading the gospel. He is associated with the account of the Loaves & Fishes. His name is of Greek origin [meaning ‘manly’] and he is considered to be the Apostle to the Greeks.  In recognition of his work as a fisherman, we’ll have a breakfast containing fish.  Andrew is also the Patron Saint of Scotland, so we will enjoy a dinner with a Caledonian connection.
