Lamb of God

November 23, 2018 at 5:14 am (Remodeling the Mind, Thoughts to Ponder, WSGD Newes) (, , )

I follow this YouTube channel that recently posted the harvest of their lambs. This small homestead farm is full of integrity and the graciousness and passion for honoring God in their everyday lives is quite the testimony. The harvest video was… hard and…sobering…and beautiful in its execution. Pun intended. While watching Dan so respectfully kill his lamb, with tears flowing down his face, and then with as much respect in the skinning and removal of its inward parts as he had for tending the creature from birth, it can’t help but bring Yeshua (Jesus) to mind and those many years previous to His birth where lambs (among others) were sacrificed for our sins daily. Sin costs, and a precious price. Dan and his young son live the knowledge of this in ways most of us don’t, every year at this time. I don’t think it’s ironic the timing; as so many people are gearing up to celebrate the “birth” of the Lamb of God, who takes away the sins of the world.

Most of us have no concept of raising our own food and tending the earth as God intended. It would be grotesque and even considered barbaric to do so now, with our modern and updated, more knowledgeable and “smart” ways these days. Even those who hunt for their food stay much removed from understanding what sin cost the whole of creation. But raising and righteously and tenderly caring for any creature from birth to the table is the only way to fully comprehend the depths of it; even now with Yeshua having done the ultimate sacrifice – once and for all.

At Passover, God instructs His people to bring the spotless lamb (no replacements are allowed this time, it has to be a lamb) inside to the family dwelling for two weeks prior to the sacrifice. This was done on purpose, because the heart can disconnect still if the “cattle remain separate” at harvest time. Still not easy but much easier. So at Passover, He brings a bonding element into the sacrifice – to teach and cement the gravity of sin. The earth and animals are completely innocent of sin, but suffer the effects because of us. It’s one thing to bring in an annoying animal and keep some distance at heart. Imagine a goat, for instance, braying at all hours and wrecking the home for a week before it’s time to sacrifice it. If anything, that would bring an element of relief or even a sense of justice to kill it. But lambs are gentle and in new environments reduced to calm out of fear and adjustment of the change that occurs and removal from their herd. They are obedient and docile and well… so sweet and innocent looking…cuddly. Before the two weeks is up, the family could not help but have their own heart strings attached to theirs. Especially the children and the parents suffering doubly, watching their children hurt so badly at the lambs loss on top of their own breaking heart. God knows how to make a point, drive it home and etch it for reminders in our hearts, not just our minds. Today, on the small homesteads, they attend their animals, their children tend them with affection, they watch them be born and raise them, some raise them with tenderness and reverence. Harvest time for these is flat hard. For those who believe and follow Yeshua, the cost of sin puts its full weight on their hearts once a year. For those of us who go to the butcher or grocery store… we have very little access to this lesson and the depth it brings to the Word – thankfulness. I suspect Dan, whose heart is fully invested in honoring God in EVERYTHING he does, knows this and thus posted this video on Thanksgiving day but at midnight – the landslide before Black Friday which has no life…a day totally deprived of meaning what so ever.

Having learned the tenderest way to kill his lambs he raised, named, nursed, pet, comforted, pastured, and played with for 7-8 months.

Some having kept as breeders, so watching them give birth several times to feed his family. He weeps as the knife traipses its way across their throats, while he holds them in the position of their utmost vulnerability but also totally submitted…trusting… and waits for them to become motionless, such a heart can not but help but run to his Savior! Feel gratitude and magnitude of life all at once. And find a perspective of forgiveness as he carves away the skin and organs of vitality in a way most of us will never experience. The living like this every year transforms this man into an image bearer of the Most High God that can not be denied.

His first year killing his allotted lambs, set aside for food. He did his homework, he did his best to get the set up for the kindest kill, the least stressful for all involved. He hired a professional butcher to come teach him. He stepped away for a moment for the call of duty, and returned to find the butcher had proceeded without him. Grabbed the first lamb, kicking and screaming around the corner, in front of all the other lambs and killed it before he could join him. That entire harvest session took weeks for his family to recover from. It broke their hearts, some didn’t recover and left. I couldn’t help but think of how most the meat we consume is harvested, and how blind those who do the deed must become to do it, heartless. How robots and machines now carve the sacrifice removing the stain from human hands. Conveniently packaged and ready to cook this important process – meant to bring depth to our character – brings expectancy and depreciation instead.

So… you say…”since Messiah died and replaced this whole sacrifice thing… what is the point to all this?”

You see… Yeshua fulfilled the sacrifice, but God’s desire for us to partake in the understanding of the gravity of life for our life, this never changed. Too many people live in the land of complaint and blame because WE gave our food into their hands and they became heartless and evil in their management of it while we moved on to the ‘more important things’ of life: like insurance, vacations, early retirement, possession accumulation in the disguise of inheritance, education, careers and hobbies. We have lost the depth of character for whom whose Image we are born to bear. Then we grumble about who took over and their lack of integrity and righteousness in their duties. Protesting loudly but doing… nothing… really to change it. Not like Dan. A police detective, headed towards what we would consider a bright and promising career, providing well for his family in a realm of “stability” most thought He was nuts to leave. He took responsibility for his health and family back into his own hands with the full understanding that he’d fail completely without God’s own shepherding of his heart while He teaches him how to shepherd others.

This is the message. The managing and caring for this earth, the animals and all God made was placed in our hands to tend. A great honor and responsibility. Full of hard work, requiring a trust and reliance on God that one can only experience in such a way of life. That integrates all God said from the beginning to the end of the book we call the Bible into every decision and action we take everyday to etch it on our hearts in action so as to make a permante mark on our souls. Yeshua never changed this.

We must heed the lessons to learn them. Grieve our excuses, blindness and neglect, take full responsibility back into our hands, and honor the Lord each moment forward. This is repentance.

We may not all be able to homestead to gain this perspective. Yet, I’m here, sharing this blog, having tapped into the message and can start where I can today. So can you. It starts by truly being thankful, fully repenting and beginning with just one obedience a day to trade your thoughts for His thoughts, your ways for His ways…

To acknowledge the state of disaster our health, food, water, air, and systems of commerce, education and the like is OUR failure. Not the government’s, not our grandparents, not illegal aliens, not politics, no… none of these things can keep you and I from the love of God that strengthens us to live according to His integrity. Not now, not ever.

May we be truly grateful for such a profound grace. In this, the year of our Lord 5779 or 2018.

🙏 May we comprehend the magnitude of Your sacrifice, Yeshua, Salvation, Lamb of God, and may we not lose sight of its effects on the innocent and life giving sources that our sin continues to taint until Your return. May we understand the depth of Your forgiveness and respond with our whole lives as if it makes all the difference, eradicating blame and slackness in stepping up to the full gift of tending and caring for all you’ve given us in this life, Oh Author of Life and great Shepherd. May our every minute chant “To God be the glory” until your return! Amen. 🙏

The Best Iced Tea Ever!

August 25, 2015 at 3:22 am (Food for Thought) (, , , , , , , , , , )

image

I’m starting to include here some recipes and such. This iced tea is a winner! I haven’t met a kid of any age who hasn’t begged me for it. It’s a great alternative to soda and juices that are loaded with sugars and artifical elements that are truly bad for our health. If you don’t like cinnamon then this isn’t for you.

I find that honoring God with what I put in my body has taken my walk with Him to a whole new level! I used to live on Pepsi and cappuccinos for my beverages! When we began to change our food lifestyle, I needed to find alternatives to my drink. Water was where I began, I now drink about 100-120 ounces of Distilled water daily. This is my staple beverage. But I replaced the ugly habits of soda with this tea. I still have those cappuccinos but I ask for coconut milk instead of regular and no more whip cream, it’s still not the best but better than it used to be. Not nearly as fattening and full of hormonal, antibiotic ridden milk. Remember, every little bit helps!

This tea is Caffeine free, and loaded with lots of nutritional benefits to the whole body, not to mention the brain. Cinnamon, ginger, licorice, cardamon, clove, star anise, and the many other herbs and spices in these teas bring to the table a wealth of health for the body! Lowering blood pressure, regulating blood sugar, boosting the metabolism, giving God intended energy – no unnatural highs, providing nutrients, minerals, and vitamins our bodies were designed by Him to use and fuel the systems. And! It’s so tasty you won’t miss the bad stuff!

This recipe calls for RAW Honey. RAW Honey is thick and creamy looking, not the liquid gold stuff they often say is RAW, if it’s golden brown and liquidity it’s not RAW. Honey that has been processed to that familiar form has no nutrients left in it. It’s better than sugar but offers no added benefits that God created those bees to provide for us.

Another sweetener added here is Coconut Sugar. It looks alot like brown sugar. This sugar is not profoundly sweet. If you are going to replace regular nasty sugar for this it will take quite a bit too equal that white refined garbage. Hence the reason I use both honey and coconut sugar. Coconut Sugar has tons of nutrients that white refined can not and will never provide. It has not been processed and therefore retains the nutrients God put into it. Obviously the highest heat range for all things would be our body temperature, since what we put into our mouths will have to survive this range and still give the body all the nutrients God placed in raw uncooked food and drink. Almost anything heated to 100°F or above stands to lose these nutrients. Almost anything heated to above 110°F will have no use to our bodies and our bodies send most of it to the waste/filter systems. There are many but the primary ones are liver, gall bladder, intestines, kidneys, and appendix. There are a few exceptions but they are very few. (One example would be tomatoes, cooked these offer a whole new range of nutrition to the body.) Putting nutrient depleted food and beverage into our bodies taxes our systems and causes chaos. When it comes to any white refined sugars (this includes Stevia in its white powdered/liquid form – hence the sign of heated and refined) the body begins to be tricked into believing the sweetness is good for glucose and insulin production. The white refined sugars are a lie to the body, and this is the reason diabetes is so rampant in our society now. There is not but a few beverages on the shelves of your grocery store that aren’t loaded with one or more of these deadly sugars! Just replacing the sugars we intake with the healthy alternatives will blow you away with the difference in how our bodies function. You can rest assured, Yeshua (Jesus) never had high fructose corn syrup, white refined sugar (back then it was sugar in the raw) melodextrin, gar gum, and any of the 20 other names these deadly sugars go by. This is a 20th century invention, not our best industrial improvement. Sometimes it’s just nesassary to go back and remember the basics to keep moving forward. It will always be more work to do what’s good for us than what’s bad. If it’s easy, it’s likely deadly.

So without further ado. Here is the step by step process to healthier drinking.

***Note: This is an iced tea method. Yet! Even in winter, you can put into a hot tea cup and heat it up for hot tea, or pour into a tea pot on the stove. This method makes a little less than a gallon and is stored in the frig. It can be used hot or cold given the methods mentioned above.

You can research on your own all the benefits to coconut sugar and RAW Honey on your own. I merely mention a few here. The facts will astound you!***

Truth for Living – Part 3

March 23, 2015 at 11:37 pm (WSGD Newes) (, , , , , , , , )

image

The first video I recommend everyone watch in connection with learning about food and health is Forks Over Knives. I tried to find it via YouTube but couldn’t find one without needing to click another link. We watched it via Netflix. Here’s a link to their website for those who want to order the video. You can watch it on Netflix. It’s a must see.
http://www.forksoverknives.com/

Food Inc is next. It can be viewed via Netflix and Amazon but here’s a free link via YouTube.
https://m.youtube.com/watch?v=2Oq24hITFTY

Watch “Seeds Of Death – Full Movie” on YouTube – Seeds Of Death – Full Movie: http://youtu.be/eUd9rRSLY4A

Watch “WAR ON HEALTH – The FDAs Cult of Tyranny – Full …” on YouTube – WAR ON HEALTH – The FDAs Cult of Tyranny – Full …: http://youtu.be/ziCTNkV3FBI

Watch “PRESCRIPTION FOR DISASTER” on YouTube – PRESCRIPTION FOR DISASTER: http://youtu.be/1-yECHMvbHE

This one is called Veggucated.
https://m.youtube.com/watch?v=19qSsUI79Ro

image

This one is called David vs. Monsanto. It’s excellent and tells all about how farmers are persecuted by big pharm/chemical company’s that call much of the shots in our governments. It also educates about how GMO’S contaminate everything far and wide.
https://m.youtube.com/watch?v=oPKoSrc99p4

Another must see is Farmageddon. We watched it via Netflix. Here’s a link with info about it. I couldn’t find a free youtube link that was both pc and mobile enabled :-(.
http://www.kindredmedia.org/2012/07/watch-farmageddon-streaming-for-free/

If you are looking for a doctor who will point you in the direction of real healing, this link is an example of what you are looking for. You will have to try to find someone in your area, but here’s a great example. For those of you in the upper north west. ..this one is for you. I’ve personal corresponded with Dr. Thomas and trust him.
http://www.naturedox.com/ThomasAbshierND.html

I live in Colorado, and have not found a naturalist/doc like this. This arena can be full of a lot of cult/new age gunk. Be very selective and careful. Dr.’s like Thomas (above) are hard to find. His website says it all.

http://www.phcelltox.com/
The above link is a great resource. Though not an MD, Gary Tunsky has been blessed by Yahweh with much learning and experience. He is the detox specialist. All his material and videos are top notch. (See part one for one of his videos) you can also find a few more videos via YouTube. His book is excellent and God is using him and his wife greatly. His wife, Renee’s video is found in part 1 of this series.

Though I am put off with this guy’s style (obviously not a follower of Yeshua), His videos via YouTube line up with the truth found in all these other resources. I’m about to try some of his products, so I can’t vouch for those yet. My parents have both shouted praises for his pain “meds” that aren’t synthetic and won’t cause the body harm but tough enough for cancer sufferers. They said it works. We are about to get some of their product in the mail and try it or ourselves. As I said I don’t care for his style and he endorses Stevia in its refined white powder form and liquid, which research shows it is as bad as cane sugar. There is a Stevia plant that is sweet and can be added to teas and treats, but the refined white stuff is so processed that just like cane sugar all the nutrients are zapped out of the plant leaving only a perscription for diabeties for the body to work with. Sugar cane is a plant, so is Stevia as well as beets and corn, from which most refined processed sugars come from. But common sense tells anyone, heat up any plant, veggie, fruit enough and bye bye nutrients. Refine and process enough and hello diseases.
I’ve heard that there is a Stevia powder that is green and is only the plants leaves dried and ground up to a powder, though I have yet to find it in a local grocery store. I recommend coconut sugar, and it’s label and color says it all. It’s still has nutrients and is brown (looks like brown sugar), it’s processes for making it doesn’t zap out all the goods. Though I use it sparingly. Mostly to bake brownies with on rare occasions.
So I add this link with caution. The language he uses is foul alot and not everything I’ve heard him say makes my top ten list. But it confirms more than it doesn’t.
http://thepeopleschemist.com/

I have many trustworthy recommendations for suppliments, live green food, and other health promoting non-pharmaceutical helps. If you would like the links to check them out email me

Slands61@hotmail.com

Again, look in your local grocery store for their organic and health section, they are all obtaining them. Whole Foods, Sprouts, Natural Grocers a.k.a. Vitamin Cottage are all good sources for most anything you would look for to move in a different direction for your food/health issues. I only buy my veggies and fruits at Whole Foods or farmers markets. They are by far the best. Though looking forward to the rewards of our own garden this year!

image

There are hours worth of resources here. It will likely make your eyes cross and stomach roll well before you get half way through them. As I said, this is hard stuff to “swallow”, but every bit of it is verifiable and true. I pray that some will apply the truths here and begin to know what it means for the body to be alive as God designed it. Living food feeds living souls. Below are scripture references concerning food. These are where God, Himself, gives people specific instructions for food for the body. The New Testament references are there to refute what people did with Gods instruction that distorted what He intended. As always God’s Word gets the final say. Blessings. ..

1st instructions for food (observed by Daniel)
Genesis 1:29-30

God introduces meat for the first time.
Genesis 9:3-5

The final instructions for food given to Moses.
Leviticus 11:1-30

Truth for Living – Q & A – Part 4

March 23, 2015 at 4:01 pm (WSGD Newes) (, , , , , , )

image

I am taking “liberty” to think of questions that could be asked and try to answer from my perspective, based on the information I’ve made available for this series. Please understand, this is not meant to advise. Simply to qualify in more detail.

Q – 1) Since God gave the instructions for food in Genesis-Leviticus and some in Daniel, there is no mention of taking out all meat and dairy. This seems extreme. Why amend what God said?

A – 1) True, some meats were permitted by God, though in Genesis there was no meat in the “diet” He gave until after the flood. And Daniel ate only vegetables. After viewing all the links, this answer should be obvious. We now have to contend with things that way back then God’s people did not. They did not have genetically modified meats and veggies then. Yes, meat too. The biggest response I hear from people is: “Jesus ate fish and cheese.” This is true. But Yeshua (Jesus) did not eat fish grown in hatcheries: these have been genetically altered, and pumped full of the pharmaceutical gunk to make them grow bigger, faster. Also the fish in the sea, now has radiation. Both from the testing done back in the 50’s-60’s with the A-Bombs and now with Fukishima. All throughout the 80’s-90’s the whole world has been taken down with the genetically modified vegetable seed. With cross pollenization, jet stream wind, propigation, and the like, no part of the earth has been untouched by these chemical and biological mutations. Add to that that the earth, like all things is in a state of deterioration. We are in the end times. This will not get better but worse until Yeshua comes back. This is why, we have eliminated all animal proteins from our food consumption. Sticking with the all veggie, grain foods that Daniel did in his time. Going as organic as possible. Things have changed since early Biblical days and even since Yeshua walked the earth. All the links in Part 3, will more than convince anyone of this. It’s scientifically, medically backed by abundant research. In the end, it’s your choice.

Q- 2) So if the information is correct, is there really any such thing as a real original vegetable anymore?

A – 2) Sadly, quite possibly no. But there have been a remnant of farmers all over the world who have not applied toxic chems and GMO seeds to their ground. With cross pollenization and winds they have, no doubt, been effected, but the effects are less. So organic is the way to go, at the very least to send the message out that we will no longer put our money into the hands of those who play god with what God designed perfectly from the beginning. That is why we do it. To stand for Him and truth. Truly we must all trust the Lord to make up for the terrible way we have let go of our call to rule and reign over this earth He gave us. Our (Sam and I’s) repentance is two fold. A) We have begun a garden of our own with a friend on her property (we live in an apartment) and will start growing or own veggies and herbs. B) We buy only organic and non-GMO foods, doing the leg work to research and find out everything we can about the products we buy.
In short we do the best we can with the truth we’ve been given to apply, and trust God for His lead and grace for the rest.

Q – 3) How do you possibly eat when everything at the store has processed food, and some form of killer sugars?

A – 3) It’s true, it can be very discouraging. Especially for those who work and have families with little time to spend in their kitchens. Whole foods, Sprouts Markets, and Natural Grocers (Vitamin Cottage), has a great selection of foods and alternatives. Even the other grocery stores now have organic and non-GMO sections. Farmers markets are a great source for information and ideas, support them! There are ways, but it will take more effort. It’s worth it though.

Q – 4) Why don’t you specify what or how you eat now in your post?

A – 4) I have refrained from the specifics to avoid sending out any message of a”new diet” or method that “everyone” should follow.
After all the research and learning and then time in prayer and study with the Great Physician, I hear Him saying very specifically that we must all learn the truth; which consisted of exposing all the lies we have been lead to believe and or that have been kept from us via the main stream media and medical community. (Though to be fair, most people in medical schools get taught a cirriculium that has been slanted and full of lies for years, so they are naive rather than deceitful). Then as with every single other aspect of life each must listen to Adonai tell them specifically what they should do. One thing that all this information teaches is how very detailed and intricate God made the human body, and each one is unique. The way He has directed us may not be what works for anyone else. Finances are different for everyone, health conditions, lifestyles, special needs, and so on. Only God can direct such an intricate set of conditions for someone. I do recommend seeking guidance by those who take a natural approach to health, and believe that God is the Creator of the body and all things. I put a couple of links on Part three for those who are needing to know what to look for. This way of “health care” is not covered by health insurance plans, which is often a huge problem – a legitimate one. I pray this will initiate all Followers of Yeshua to start advocating and speaking out in this regard. It’s hard to not go get a quick-“fix” pill that’s covered by an insurance plan rather than have to spend money to actually treat the problem at its source and be…well. ..cured. It’s a difficult choice for those who have tight budgets, and are in pain or suffering from the symptoms of over all health problems. Also some people are allergic to nuts, soy, gluten, and so on. My “diet” can’t prescribe or apply to many. Sam and I can relate, and had to follow Adonai’s lead each day for integrating the new ways in. For example; we couldn’t afford to “just throw out” all the food we had been eating and start over with the goods. It took us the better part of two months to phase out of health debilitating foods and replace our cupboards with what was life giving only. Supplements and other things have to be purchased only when we can afford it, and we must trust the Lord to cover us, knowing we are faithful to stay at it. Honestly what we can maintain is the food aspect, only the good and keeping away from the poison. Some weeks we are lean, and eat little and only the good stuff. Better a little living food with Love than a feast of poison that dishonors Him.
So you see, I am leary to put my “diet” out there for all to see. I’m so confident and convinced that Abba God will speak to each person specifically, how could I point anyone in any other direction for their needs? Beware of those who do different. All anyone needs is the truth about things, then The Truth (Yeshua) will lead each from there.

Q – 5) Why don’t you specify the changes you’ve experienced since changing your health approach?

A – 5) I have in general. Weight loss (healthy weight loss), improved energy, vitality and mental awareness. Chronic arthritis, tendonitis, and joint related issues improved dramatically within 5 months. I personally had a slow moving bowl (that’s a nice way of putting constipation). This too, has virtually corrected itself within months. The truth is, this way, takes time. There is no quick cure, healing damage of years of abuse takes time. I believe we still have a ways to go before we see the “end” of the changes. We committed to a year with no compromise to begin. It’s been just over 8 months. We are sold, the evidence is irrefutable. Yet as I said I believe there are exciting changes still to come. As I stated in part 2, we do not do this for the physical changes as a priority, we do it because we believe this is what Adonai has asked of us and to honor Him first and foremost. I will state honestly, I do not believe anyone will be able to stay consistent with this way of health care if the priorities are any different than that. I didn’t, years ago, we were all about feeling better and not living better or honoring how God made us. We saw huge evidence of the Truth of it and physical improvement, but honestly we were not ready to stop eating for pleasure instead of health.
For transparency sake I will list improvements we have experienced.
– weight loss
– diabetic symptoms gone
– allergies gone
– improved immunities
(Though too be fair, this took a while as the body begins to clean up, somethings get worse before they get better. The key is to let the body do what God designed it to do – clean up and heal. This is done through all the bodies elimination processes; bowel movement, sweating gunk out through the skin, going through kidneys and urine)
– eye sight is improving
– head aches are RARE now. – joint related problems improved by 60% and getting better every day. (This one takes time and detoxing)
– cardiovascular symptoms gone
– skin rashes improving
– energy levels are double what they were, which is to say they are markedly improved. We had very little when we started.
– sleeping has improved – again this one takes time and detox as the problems that surround this problem in any way are found mostly in hormone and brain function impairment. Once the brain function goes it’s at best slow to recover. And the glandular system needs at least a year of no poison and detox to show vast improvement. Though one of the first signs of its recovery is weight loss.
– mental and emotional issues (memory and mood swings) vastly improved. Though this is, I believe 50 percent nutritional and 50 percent spiritual. There are toxins that the body can’t eliminate, anger, resentment, worry, stress, unforgiveness etc. These things cause the body to produce reactions that effect the entire body. Nothing is ever entirely physical.
– digestion problems gone via the stomach
– digestion problems vastly improved via the digestive tract (bowels). Again this one will take time, as so much gunk builds up in the intestines over years and years. Detox is key, and careful attention to the foods you eat.

These are the majors. I can’t stress enough how doing things the right way is no easy fix and requires discipline and time.

Q – 6) So what exactly do you eat?

A – 6) We have eliminated all animal proteins. Meat, dairy, eggs, cheese. If it had a mother or father we don’t eat it. We have eliminated all processed and refined sugars. High fructose corn syrup, dextrin, white sugar in any form including Stevia. The only thing we use for sweeteners is honey, coconut sugar, and 100% pure natural maple syrup and these in moderation. Rices, quinoa, lentils, beans, grains, nuts, seeds of all kinds are a staple. Fresh, organic veggies and fruits are the main course of our food. I would say we are vegan but even that doesn’t apply as there are varieties of vegan. Some people think oreo cookies are vegan. Not. The refined sugars and other processed poisonous “food” (really chemicals) make these a definitive no no. The body is not designed to operate normally and healthy with oreo’s.
Healthy Water (distilled or alkalized pH balanced filtered) , decaffeinated teas, and coffee are the drinks. No more soda of any kind. (This was a miracle for me!) We have Flax milk, coconut milk, and almond milk for cooking, baking and drinking.
All refined whites (sugar,flour) gone. Coconut flour, sorghum flour, spelt, quinoa flours. Coconut oil is a staple as well as avocado and olive, all organic, cold pressed, extra virgin. When losing weight is a priority these must be eliminated or used sparingly at first. The body stores these fats for “lean” times, and in our society there’s no such thing, so instead butters and oils in excess will clog up the systems and cause major health problems throughout the body. Avocados are a really good source of healthy fats in the mean time. Breads are egg free, gluten free, dairy free and sugar free, made with sprouted grains as much as possible. With very few exceptions Tortillas as well. Chips and crackers are the same mostly grain/seed related.
That’s about it. Though we are still amending as we learn and go.
Sadly, 99 percent of eating out where we live is not doable anymore. We have one salad bar oriented restaurant we can safely eat out at and that’s it. Everywhere else we have to compromise due to the fact that even grilled veggies get cooked in or on the same things as meats. French fries are fried in oil vats that fry chicken nuggets and other meat related products. This was and often is still very hard. I can’t tell you how often I wish I could just order a pizza and take a break from cooking all the food all the time. I was spoiled. But we find if we cheat now, we pay more than once ($) but twice (in the body) later. We are learning, if we’re going to spend money on food it at least should do the body more good than harm. We feel it right away now, and we are grateful our bodies are finally speaking up and being heard when we feed it gunk instead of nutrients.

Get connected. There are tons of online blogs, links and recipes for this stuff folks. There is far more information than I’ve shared here as well. We have no excuses in our day and age for ignorance and neglect. Do your own research and soak the brain in prayer at all times, seeking only the will of God for your life and all the aspects of it. It helps to have sources of encouragement and support for stuff like this. Find ways, and stay the course. Then share first via your example, but at every opportunity with words as God opens the doors.

This is as much information as I can muster to send as many arrows from all directions pointing to the truth about physical health related issues in our days and times. I pray they are found useful to someone. Yet know this, I do not believe that our physical well being is ever to become an obsession. By far the Word of God teaches and examples that the health of the heart mind and soul spiritually is by far the biggest priority to our heavenly Abba.

The most important food for a human being is God’s Word. Daily consumed, this food will cover all the bases to all else.

Matthew 6:31-33

So don’t be anxious, asking, “What will we eat? What will we drink? Or How will we be clothed?” For it is the pagans who set their hearts on all these things. Your heavenly Father knows you need them all. But seek first His Kingdom and His Righteouness, and all these things will be given to you as well.
