Kingdom Kinnected


Hello all! It’s Queen Bee Esther and I have been MIA for a little because my family and I have decided to fast and pray during the next 40 days.  We started this past Monday and we still have a long ways to go.  Now not only are we doing a fast but we are doing a Daniel fast!  Which means that we get to eat meals but with various limitation on what we can eat.  The most important being no meat, no sugar, and no dairy.  We will also juice from time to time.  I will also fast off of unnecessary spending habits, TV, and social media unless it pertains to business.  Because I know a lot of people tend to do the Daniel fast first before journeying on other fasts, I decided to keep everyone up to date on what it is like to be on the Daniel fast and what foods we will be eating along the way.  Honestly, I am not much of a cook but because we have a home business, I will be attempting to do most of the cooking for the next days to take some weight off of my dad cooking.

Along the way, I will post pictures of the meals that I cooked and the recipes from various sources online.  Surprisingly, it was very easy for me to find quite a couple of different recipes to use on the fast so I am excited to share them with you.  It is Day 3 of our fast and I have mixed feelings as of right now.  I know that the change in food intake is a huge benefit to my body and its health but I also can’t help but miss my sweets and snacks.  Thankfully, there are substitutions!

Here are pictures of what we had for the first 3 days of our fast.

Breakfast – G’Oatmeal

20150826_145126G’Oatmeal is a really great idea.  The purpose of G’Oatmeal was to create a breakfast oatmeal muffin for on the go.  I love this recipe and as I made it for the second time today, I took away some ingredients and added others.  Aside from the recipe, I also added dried cranberries, some cinnamon, and raisins.  I also took out the ground flax seeds.  It turned out great and with this recipe I was able to make 16 muffins.  It should last for the next 3 or 4 days.  These can also be used for snacks by adding some more honey in the mix!

Dinner – Spicy Vegan Potato Curry, Dole Salad, and Herb and Olive Oil Flatbread

20150824_164148The spicy vegan potato curry was very easy to make and I doubled the recipe which worked out great because it actually lasted for 3 days.  We may even have some left over for a fourth!  I know that sounds like torture to eat the same thing 3 days in a row but it wasn’t all that bad!  Potatoes tend to fill you up quickly so if you make a lot, it lasts longer.  To accompany the potatoes we did a Herb and Olive Oil Flatbread with whole wheat flour and I will warn you now.  It is vastly different in taste than using white flour, however, it worked out well.  I seasoned the flour more than the recipe called for and added some more salt to give it some more taste.  I also added some baking powder so it would thicken up a little.  And lastly, you must have a salad!  We love love love to go to Walmart and get our salads.  They are all natural, already come chopped with its own salad dressing.  All we have to do is put it in a bowl, add the dressing, and mix.  Our favorite hands down is Dole’s Chopped Sunflower Crunch Salad Kit.  It’s downright delicious, in a salad kind of way of course!

Snacks 

Tropical Fruit Salad

20150824_162735Since we are sticking to more of a one meal fast, we planned to have some snacks around the house that would fall in with the Daniel fast. And of course the next best thing to veggies are fruits!  So we decided to do a simple tropical fruit salad.  I did take out some fruits and use others from the recipe below.  I find that red grapes and blueberries last a lot longer in the fridge than other fruits.  I usually freeze the blueberries until I am ready to use them.  The grapes we keep in the refrigerator.  If I haven’t used all the watermelon for juicing, I also add some watermelon to the fruit bowl.  In the picture you will also see some strawberries and minneolas (which I believe are a type of Tangerine…).  The minneolas were not as sweet as we thought they might be. They are more on the tart side, so next time we will replace them with something else.  Strawberries spoil very quickly so we will substitute those next time as well.

Almond Butter Bites

20150826_150628The almond butter bites I made just today and haven’t tasted them yet.  I tasted the batter and they seem very promising.  They have my favorites in them which are raisins, sunflower seeds, almonds, and shredded coconut so I am really excited to try them out.  They are a no bake desert and all you have to do is put them in the freezer and take them out when ready to eat.  Fingers crossed that they live up to expectations!

Juicing Recipe: Watermelon Carrot Juice

I’m sorry that I don’t have a picture for this as I forgot to take one but juicing recipes are great because you can really make them your own adding and subtracting what you desire.  I am just going to give you the ingredient of what we put in this juice.  The base fruit we use for this juice is Watermelon and the base vegetable we use are carrots.  This recipe yielded a full jug of juice.  We just finished it today!

15-20 Carrots

3/4 or 1 Whole Watermelon

10 Strawberries

A few pieces of Celery Sticks

1 inch of Ginger

2 Green Apples

***As you can see we only gave you main recipes for Breakfast and Dinner.  We are doing a one meal type Daniel fast where our main meal is our dinner.  However, because I go to school and work, I needed to make some breakfast recipes for when I am on the go.  Therefore, you will not see any lunch recipes throughout our fast.  There will be more posts coming soon!  Thanks for checking out our fast progress and God Bless!

“I got an amazing deal on an awesome brand new car. My salesman Suvin Viswanathan, was professional, patient, and transparent. I typically cringe when I think of car shopping; the haggling and tricks/gimmicks always leave me frustrated! There was none of that at Rockville BMW. Suvin wanted my business and worked hard to earn it. From sales to financing the whole experience was a pleasure. Suvin and his team stayed until well after closing to ensure I got the car I wanted at a fair price with good financing. They worked with my damaged trade-in and gave me a pretty fair trade. I’ve purchased quite a few cars over the years. This was my 2nd BMW. My experience at Rockville BMW was by far the best ever. If you’re in the area and in the market it’s worth your time to stop in and see Suvin. You won’t regret it.”

Mini Cooper Styles


Priority 1 Automotive Group’s Mini Cooper Collection (Different Styles)

Mini Coopers are one of the most adorable cars that you can get on the market today.  Not intentionally trying to feminize Mini Coopers but if they were to be described in one word, it would be adorable.  Of course when one thinks of Mini Coopers, one probably (most likely) thinks of the movie Italian Job with Mark Wahlberg and Charlize Theron that came out in 2003.  After all, it was a great movie and did feature Mini Coopers.  They are well-known for their ability to handle turning corners extremely well and fit in small spaces that a mid-size sedan may not make it through.  When Mini Coopers first came out, there were only specific styles that were available to purchase, but as demand grew for these cars so did the need for BMW to make newer models that reached a variety of different customers.  This article features the 7 Mini Cooper style groups that make each Mini Cooper different and unique.

She took another car to work and I called Brian( Rogers) at the service department about 7:30am Monday morning. He answered right away! I told him the problem and he said “bring it in”. I needed a loaner vehicle for other appointments that day, and he said “no problem”.They looked at the car and were finished about 10:30am, but I was already at appointments. He was going to be there until 6:00pm, but I didn’t think I could get back by 6:00pm to exchange.

“1st spoke with Julie over the phone. Julie was very friendly and gave me a price that was good enough to get me to drive 1 1/2 hours from Delaware. Upon arriving at the dealership the following day Ed met us with a smile at the door. After a test drive and a short negotiation we decided to buy the truck. The whole process was NO pressure and hassle free. I would highly recommend anyone buy from Thompson if in the market for a new car/truck”

The key to best auto repair is to figure out the actual cause of the issue rather than simply guessing. We spend our time on cars without diagnosing the exact point of the problem and that proves as a total loss when it comes to time. Proper troubleshooting will guide you in the correct direction and will cut out possible issues that are not the actual problems. Different symptoms such as warning lights turning on or off, bad gas mileage, wearing out of tires, a sluggish vehicle and abnormal braking can make you find out the exact point of tension.  Here are some key points on how to diagnose common car issues:


Brake Issues
The most essential part of your car, of course, are the brakes.  Brakes in particular need special care and attention. There can be many brake issues such as grinding sounds, mushy pedals or poor brakes.  All need to be diagnosed before being fixed.  Brake pedals that go too far down can have the issues of low brake fluid level, worn brake pads or poor brake power boost unit. If the brake pedal is too hard to push down, then it might be due to brake line obstruction or vacuum issues. The problem of spongy breaks might be occurring because of contaminated brake fluid.  Pedal vibration might be the result of bad brake discs or pads.
Getting the Car Started
There is nothing more annoying than a car not starting when you are ready to go somewhere.  There are different potential reasons for this and if you know the main reasons why a car isn’t starting, you can quickly resolve the problem.  Possible causes could be of fuses attached to the starting system of your car. Examining the fuse is strongly recommended before touching any other part. Check your car battery.  The car battery could be dead.  A poor ignition switch and electrical connection can be a problem as well.  You can fix these issues by yourself but the best thing to do is to take it to a mechanic just to be sure the job is done properly.  Starting problems cannot be caused due to issues in fuel pump that you must take the fuel system pressure test for.  It may be because of a loose starter or bad injector. A bad injector gets the fuel system down and prevents the engine from firing.
Engine Performance
Observation is the key to diagnosing the exact problem. You know your engine more than anyone else does. If the engine is making a strange noise or smell, there is a high probability of an issue.  A few common symptoms are thin smoke in the exhaust, excessive oil consumption, engine hesitation or engine misfiring. The reasons for these could be that the engine might be running extremely hot, issues in fuel pressure regulator, ignition system problems, leaking vacuum or dirt and dust in the fuel injector. There could be several other reasons but these are the main ones. You can ask someone who is an expert or you can also study it from the Internet to increase your knowledge about car engines and their performance.
A car is a complicated machine that needs extra care. You must check, clean and replace its parts from time to time in order to keep it running well.

What Should You Consider When Buying a Car?

Whenever you think of buying a new car, never avoid your price range and necessities. You should not be dreaming of the car that costs $50,000 when you can afford only the ones under $30,000.  Being realistic is the key to buying the right car.  Here are some tips on what to consider when purchasing a car:

 
Stay Near Invoice Cost
Invoice cost is the price the dealer pays to the manufacturer for the car.  The dealer then adds thousands of dollars to that price called MSPR (manufacturer’s suggested retail price) to earn profit. Conduct appropriate research about the dealer and car before even stepping into the showroom and try to keep the price close to the invoice price.

 
Rebates
Rebates are a great way to save some extra cash, time and energy.  Buyer’s can be informed about active rebates provided by manufacturers or by the dealerships that sell vehicles.  Some of these rebates even come in the form of a loyalty membership program when you purchase with particular dealerships.  People are notified about the rebates via different means as well, such as e-mail, ads and newspapers.

 
Do Your Research
Never enter the showroom before collecting complete information about the reputation and features of the car you have selected, about the quality provided by the manufacturing company and about the dealer’s reputation.  Cars are not items that you need to buy on a day to day basis so the purchase of a car should be something that you take into great consideration before actually purchasing. You should search for information online.  A lot of dealerships have their inventory and reviews available online so that you can do your research from the comfort of your home.  However, just in case information is not available to you online, you may ask your friends, family members or neighbors, who have experience in the process of purchasing a car.

 

Credit History
Credit history is the history of the borrower and shows how responsibly the borrower has responded to other sources of financial help it took via loans or credit cards. Many car buyers need a loan from banks.  So when this is the case, the person must have his/her credit history that can be fetched from three credit bureaus named Experian, Equifax, and TransUnion.  Your credit score will most likely determine what the interest rate of the loan will be.

 

Insurance Rates
Different insurance companies charge different rates for different types of cars. Try to shop from more than one insurance company to get the lowest and most appropriate coverage.  Some cars, depending on their features, are able to get certain discounts on the insurance policy.

 

 

Don’t Rush
View and test the car first before making a commitment to purchase. Collect complete information from the dealer and the salesperson.  If you are unsure about the purchase, do some more research first.

 
Make An Appointment
Once you are done with your research, the next step is making an appointment. Do not be an easy customer.  Be firm on what you can afford on a month to month basis and do not go over that amount.
