Is there anything better than waking up on your own, on a Saturday morning with the sun shining bright, temperatures higher than usual (for January) a good book in hand and a delicious breakfast (that makes you feel good?)
Michael and I were given a gift card to a Christian bookstore, so I took a trip out there this week and saw this book on display. It’s a fantastic read, so far! This plan is loosely based off of the daniel fast or daniel diet which can be studied in the book of Daniel (old testament) in the bible. Saddleback church, which has a very famous pastor, Rick Warren, recently decided as a church that they needed to focus more on their health! Below are some of my favorite quotes from my reading this morning.
We have become food consumers, not food producers or makers. (p.38)
…if it was grown on a plant, eat it. If it was made in a plant, leave it on the shelf. (p.38)
This is the biggest scientific discovery since the germ theory of disease and antibiotics: food is medicine. (p. 36)
Real, whole food that comes from the earth–food that was created by God–heals, while industrial-processed food created in factories by man harms. (p. 37)
Wow. There is such truth to this!
