Eat a Rainbow Everyday (Thursdays are for Health)

“The first key to reclaiming or maintaining optimal health is to fill your plate with living foods. Eat fruits and vegetables. Eat beans and whole grains.

Dangerous Food (Thursdays are for Health)

“While living foods are the foods that God made, dead foods are foods produced or drastically altered (think potato chips rather than fresh produce) by humans. The name is apropos because not only do they contain no living energy, but if you eat enough of them you will find yourself on the fast track toward sickness and death. That food … Read More

Preventing Disease (Thursdays are for Health)

“Like fish in water, most of us have a hard time seeing the nature of the environment we live in.

Stop Helping the Enemy (Thursdays are for Health)

“Making excuses and using scripture to smokescreen the sin you and I love leaves us playing right into our enemy’s hands. There’s nothing he would rather do than convince us that God is okay with us overloading our bodies with the foods that will eventually kill us. After all, when our bodies fail, then we are out of service. Let’s decide … Read More

God’s Dietary Guidelines (Thursdays are for Health)

Anatomically speaking, paying attention to what he says about food gives us the greatest chance for optimal health. For example: Eat lots of fruits and vegetables. (Genesis 1:29) Fish with scales and fins are healthier than sea scavengers. (Lev. 11:9-11) Pigs … Read More
