Trade White for Whole Grain (Thursdays are for Health)

51vgqldEQML“Over a period of six years, scientists tracked 43,000 men whose diets were high in white rice, white bread, and white pasta.

The participants had two and a half times the incidence of Type II diabetes as those who ate high-fiber alternatives such as whole grain bread and brown rice.

In addition to obesity and diabetes, these nutritionally defunct foods also lead to higher incidences of heart disease and many types of cancer.

‘Now go and get some wheat, barley, beans, lentils, millet, and emmer wheat, and mix them together in a storage jar. Use them to make bread for yourself…’ – Ezekiel 4:9″
