You Are What You Eat--Part 1


I found the above trailer at: It has valuable information in helping us to understand how our bodies are designed, along with the effects of the foods we put into it. Keep in mind, we all have to start in the same place...with our ancestor's genes, in a world full of processed foods.

In the BIBLE, it reads: "In all your ways(including diet!!!) acknowledge him, and he will make your paths straight. This will bring health to your body and nourishment to your bones." Proverbs 3:6, 8. In the book Be Healthy and Happy by Dr. M.H.Tabb , he writes "It is the will of God that his servants remain in perfect health until the day they die, serving him to the fullest." (pg 26)

But, he also writes, "It is not in God's revealed will to keep anyone physically well nor mentally alert without that person eating proper food designed by God for human consumption." (pg 53) In relation to this: In the BIBLE, it reads, "My people are destroyed from lack of knowledge. Because you have rejected knowledge, I also reject you as my priests; because you have ignored the law of your God, I also will ignore your children." Hosea 4:6

So, by discovering knowledge about the kinds of foods that God mentions in the Bible to eat, and following his suggestions, we should pro-long our lives and bring health to our bodies? It only makes sense to do this since we follow all of His other commandments! What types of food does God mention in the BIBLE to eat, then? Here is what I could find:

"Then God said, 'I give you EVERY SEED-BEARING PLANT on the face of the whole earth and EVERY TREE THAT HAS FRUIT WITH SEED IN IT. They will be yours for food.'" Genesis 1:29

"You may EAT ANY ANIMAL THAT HAS A SPLIT HOOF DIVIDED IN TWO and that chews the cud. Of all the creatures living in the water, you may eat ANY THAT HAS FINS AND SCALES. You may eat ANY CLEAN BIRD." Deuteronomy 14: 6, 9, 11

"Take wheat and barley, beans and lentils, millet and spelt; put them in a storage jar and use them to make bread for yourself." Ezekiel 4:9 (EZEKIEL 4:9 is a brand of bread and cereal available in Health Food stores that our family buys. Its creation is based on this verse and made of whole grains, so it's very nutritious.)

Be Healthy and Happy by Dr. M.H.Tabb, pg 27, he writes, "Moses ate HONEY, OIL, COW BUTTER, MILK OF SHEEP, LAMBS, RAMS and GOATS, SHEEP, and GRAPE JUICE(Deut. 32:13-14).... He ate plenty of QUAIL (Ex. 16:13)"...and in future tense, refers to "the increase of the fields", or PRODUCE. At 120, Moses still had the strength and eyesight of his youth" pg 26.

So, what is the biggest difference between present day Christians, many sickly at ages 40, 50, 60, etc, and Moses? Our diet and the diets of our parents and grandparents--what we eat, and in the forms we eat it. From all of the above verses, one can understand how to get many of the nutrients our bodies need: by eating FRUIT, DAIRY, VEGETABLES, most MEATS, and WHOLE GRAINS in their MOST NATURAL STATES-- the foods that God intended us to eat.

Contrary to popular belief, God does not mention and Moses did not ingest things like: sugar, high fructose corn syrup, growth hormones and immunizations in beef and dairy, soda-pop, preservatives, enriched flour, vegetables and fruits that are genetically altered, pesticides, herbicides, chemical dyes or MSG. So, when we put all these extra "yummies" into our body, we open ourselves up for possible disease and health ailments. Our family occasionally struggles with avoiding these foods, as well, but it makes it easier when you cook more at home, look for better-quality restaurants to occasionally eat at, and buy organic foods, since these types of foods are required by law to be in their most-natural states. It does get tight on the budget, but look at it as an investment in your future, and your child's (or future child's) days to come.

In my next BLOG, we will take a closer look at degenerative disease and what the Bible says about it. Please check back!

The book
Be Healthy and Happy by Dr. M.H.Tabb (click on words to see book to buy) has over 900 scripture references in it and is a study of God's methods of preventing and curing all degenerative disease. I absolutely LOVE my copy of the book, and would encourage you to purchase a copy for yourself as well by clicking on the book title link. For only $7, it's such a thought-provoking resource to have on hand!

In Christ, Ms. Salubrious
