MY THOUGHTS THURSDAY: The Importance of Whole Foods
I am a firm believer in the consumption of whole foods and this is something my blog is no stranger to. I am passionate about bodily health and think that fuel as food and God-intended exercise are the keys to physical health.
Brittany Schafer, vegan blogger and YouTuber, has a great video on the importance of whole foods consumption.
Now the hard thing for me about this passion is that the enemy got a hold of it, warped it, and turned it into a destructive, consuming, and unhealthy idol in my life. For a long time, any food terrified me, and now it is more than any none whole food terrifies me. This shouldn’t be the case or the focus and I know that talking about it only gives it weight or hold or importance– none of which the enemy has.
So when I blog about this, I’m going to blog about it as my God-given passion, and continue to pray that the enemy is away from this and every area of my life.
This simple video breaks down the reason our God-given whole foods have been turned into chemicals, and why they’re causing worldly induced diseases and bodily error. Healing is a natural process that is only GOD, and in terms of the physical, consumption of these man made chemicals that are only existent for money and self-gain is not the way to go.
My family buys all our meat from a local farm that is JUST MEAT; all our produce is organic and “one-ingredient” (who would’ve thought?), and I personally avoid any processed food, and have incredible energy doing so. And guess what? It all tastes better! Using natural herbs and spices and oils for cooking gives food the all the flavour it was meant to have.
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
