Bible and Breakfast Review

Book Review: 

I have read a couple other books by Cuicui and although they were good, I wasn't blown away by any means. But I was intrigued by this book as it seemed to conquer two common issues among believing women: eating healthy and starting our day off with Jesus.

I absolutely loved this book! I have been working for the past couple years to build a Whole Foods eating routine in my home and have always struggled with starting my day off with the Kingdom of God. This book combines both in a beautiful way.

The book begins with Cuicui's introduction and welcome. Then provides a quick Q&A for how to utilize the book. She then provides brief explanation regarding the recipes included throughout the book: they are whole foods, some cheat on whole food ingredients but in a minimal way, and include an index specifying which are freezer-friendly, gluten-free, kid-friendly, and meal prep applicable.

There are 31 mornings that provide a healthy breakfast recipe and a Scripture study. I was impressed with how she structured the Scripture study. Understanding that women can have busy mornings but also relaxed mornings, she provides two options for the Scripture study. One version is called "Snack on the Go". This option is shorter to allow for a quick replenishment in God's Word. The second version is called "Feast at the Table". This option provides a much more in depth look into Scripture along with more journaling. The structure of this section includes the following:
- Focus on God
- Engage the Text
- Assess the Main Idea
- Spark Transformation
- Turn to God in Worship

Throughout the book she also includes 2 sections called "Develop a Healthy Habit". These sections ask you to reflect on the previous week of going through Bible & Breakfast. What are you enjoying, what's not working well, what tweaks can be made, what would you like to say to Jesus? Answering these questions allow you to take a quick break to adjust as needed.

I enjoyed the recipes included in the book. Some are pretty typical but others were new to me and gave me a bit of excitement to try. I love that each recipe includes a beautiful picture of the completed meal - visuals are necessary for food! She made it clear at the beginning of the book that we are not expected to make every recipe each morning. We can meal prep for the coming week, we can freeze, or we can try the recipes as we have the time.

I received a copy of this book in exchange for an honest review.
