     There are many aspects affecting health and wellness, and the diet aspect can be the most complex. Some foods get a bad reputation, but all foods in moderation were created to be healthful for us when received with thanksgiving. 


     Deciphering what is food can get a bit confusing at times, though. Fruits, vegetables, grains, legumes, nuts, dairy and meats are all foods that should be able to be a part of a healthy, moderate diet if one chooses to eat all foods. 


    Certainly, there are situations and times when a restrictive diet is in order to correct a lifetime or even a season of imbalance. Each person is unique and requires lifestyle recommendations based on past experiences, illnesses, preferences, and anticipated outcomes.


"Taking the five loaves and the two fish and looking up to heaven, he gave thanks and broke them. Then he gave them to the disciples to distribute to the people."
Luke 9:16-17 ~NIV


The correct nutrition makes the difference between the body functioning properly with the right amount of energy and endurance or crashing out and developing dis-ease. In each stage of life nutrition needs fluctuate; for optimal health certain vitamin and mineral levels are essential.

Unfortunately, in processed foods, many vitamins and minerals have been replaced with preservatives and chemical additives, which have no nutrients at all. In fact, in order for the body to process these additives, vitamins and minerals are used up during the detoxification process.

To make the switch from barely getting by to having life, and having it abundantly, living food full of the nutrition that it was created with is key.

 


And God said, “Behold, I have given you every plant yielding seed that is on the face of all the earth, and every tree with seed in its fruit. You shall have them for food.”
Genesis 1:29 ~NIV
