In the last five years, I have become interested in eating healthy. Maybe it was because I stopped working out so much (I swam in college) and I didn’t want to gain weight! Or maybe it was because my friends and family were becoming interested in healthy living. Either way I knew I needed to change my eating habits.
Recently, I have become more interested in eating vegetarian. I have read blogs and books and watched documentaries all about the benefits of eating this way. My husband recently completed medical school so I often bug him to tell me the latest health buzz. After becoming interested in healthy eating, I wanted to look in the book above all books – The Bible to see what it had to say about health.
What the Bible Says About Food
Genesis 1:29 – 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.
1 Corinthians 6:19 – Do you not know that your body is a temple of the Holy Spirit, who is in you, whom you have received from God? You are not your own, you were bought at a price. Therefore honor God with your body.
And most importantly, God satisfies our soul, not food.
Psalm 63:5 – You satisfy me more than the richest feast. I will praise you with songs of joy.
