In today’s society, women have so many messages coming at them, making many them feel inadequate in some way. Although these messages seem to be shouting at us daily, I believe there is a simple, yet powerful answer to overcome these feelings of not being ‘enough’, which is to simply be thankful!
This year I decided to hold another 21-day challenge at Dashing Dish, but this time around I decided to make the focus on being thankful for the good things the Lord has done in our lives!
God has given us so many unique talents, gifts, and abilities in order to bless others, raise families, and glorify the Lord. So, why not make a conscious effort to give thanks every day for 21 days!?
Starting November 1st, I want to challenge my readers during one of the busiest seasons of the year to focus on the blessings in their life. It can be something big, or small, or even something you are thankful for related to your health and/or body! The challenge will go for 21 days (ends on November 21st) and hopefully will last a lifetime (statistics prove it takes 21 days to form a habit). I pray this challenge will inspire you to focus on the things in your life that you can be thankful for!
The winner of the challenge will receive a Dashing Dish Favorite Things Basket! This basket will be filled with tons of my favorite goodies, which include; 3 containers of protein powder and protein bars from Designer Whey, Peanut Flour, Nu Naturals Stevia, a custom made apron from Chelsea Made Aprons ($100 value), and a $100 Visa Gift Card!
There are three ways to Enter: Share a picture of something you are thankful for on Facebook, Twitter, or Instagram, and tag or mention @DashingDish or #DashingDish. Every day that you share, it counts as an entry and increases your chance to win!
For accountability and support: You can join the Facebook 21 Day Dashing Dish Give Thanks Challenge Group! This group is for anyone involved in the Dashing Dish 21 Day Challenge! It is a place where we can support, encourage, and pray for one another to focus on the good things God has done in our lives! Sarah Shaffer will be posting in this group as well, and she and I will be praying for you daily! You can share pictures, or whatever it is you are thankful for here as well!
Remember! The 21-Day Challenge begins November 1st and ends November 21st! I will be doing this challenge along with you guys, and I’m so excited to start this journey with you!
(Please note – This challenge is limited to US citizens only, due to shipping purposes.)
First, let me start by introducing the amazing woman behind these adorable custom aprons, and the host of this giveaway, Chelsea! Not only is she beautiful on the outside, this woman has a beautiful heart for Jesus, and she has a passion to use her gifts and talents to glorify Him! Her area of expertise just so happens to be designing custom aprons! When I heard this, I was instantly in love, because anyone who knows me, knows I have a thing for cute aprons!
The best part!?! Chelsea also loves Dashing Dish, and offered to design a custom made apron to one lucky Dashing Dish reader ($100 value)!
There are 2 ways to enter (each counts as a separate entry):
1. Visit Chelsea’s Etsy Shop, and leave a comment below sharing what you love about her custom aprons and/or what your favorite one is that she has made.
2. Share this giveaway on Facebook or Twitter and comment back here stating that you did. Also, be sure to tag @DashingDish and @ChelseaMadeUSA in your post!

Here are just a few of my personal favorites! How adorable are these!?!
The last recipe contest I held here at Dashing Dish was the protein shake competition. It was a huge success, and I loved hearing the creative recipe variations you guys came up with! Since it is summer, and we seem to have a few extra hours ‘added’ to our days, I thought, why not hold another Recipe Contest!
As you all know, I love my protein shakes, but recently I have been equally enjoying my overnight protein oatmeal! The great thing about overnight oatmeal is that you can prepare it well in advance, it is portable, it sticks with you well until lunch time, and let’s face it- its pretty delicious! With that being said, I would love to see some of the creative spins that you put on this wonderfully delicious and easy breakfast! I can’t wait to hear what you guys come up with!
Prizes: The winner will receive a $100 Amazon Gift Card and a publication of the winning recipe on Dashing Dish! Runner up will receive their choice of a Dashing Dish Meal Plan.
How to enter: Using my protein overnight oatmeal base (listed below), simply add your own ingredients and flavor variations to create a flavor and name of your very own oatmeal and submit the entry form below.

As you may already know, I love making my protein packed shakes and protein baked goods with Designer Whey Protein Powder! It is awesome tasting, blends great, and is great on the nutritional scale (not to mention, most of the flavors are all natural!)

My sweet friend Michelle Meyers recently designed and started her own workout clothing line that is both fashionable, and meaningful!

The best part!?! Michelle is offering a workout top of choice to one lucky Dashing Dish reader!

Anyone that knows me knows that I love learning & studying from the Word because it is they only thing that truly changed me, (and continues to each day) from the inside out! For that reason, I love a few specific ministries that teach the basic foundations from the Word in a very realistic and applicable way! Joyce Meyer Ministries is one of my favorites for that very reason.
Joyce Meyer is an amazing teacher of the Word. She uses real life scenarios which are typically very funny, uplifting and even a bit ‘let’s be real‘…All of which are all needed from time to time.
Because I have personally been blessed so very much by her ministry, I thought I would do a giveaway and share some of my Favorite life-changing materials with all of YOU!
The Winner of the Giveaway Will Receive:

If you’ve ever seen the Food Network show “Throwdown”, then you are familiar with the judging process that takes place between two winning recipes!
