Throughout my life of dabbling in various forms of spirituality (Buddhism, yoga, Christianity, Reiki), I noticed each community has a different idea or trend when it comes to the food it consumes.
Food is healing and God created food from nature. For example, traditional yoga is deeply rooted to vegetarianism and follows Ayurvedic principles. I noticed that many Christians have a disconnect between their faith and food. Many, like most of Americans in general, consume too much artificial and fast food; however, the Bible speaks of natural, nourishing foods created by God.
In college, I worked at a vegan cafe and was confused by the Ezekiel brand bread. Today, now I get it. People need to understand these food corporations know what they are doing.
Here are some powerful verses that reflect the power of natural foods.
Deuteronomy 8: “The Lord your God is bringing you into a good land… a land with wheat and barley, vines and fig trees, pomegranates, olive oil and honey”.
Revelation 22:2: "Through the middle of the street of the city; also, on either side of the river, the tree of life with its twelve kinds of fruit, yielding its fruit each month. The leaves of the tree were for the healing of the nations."
