Food Grace

5 Jun

Starting this blog has made me appreciate the beauty of food even more. Now that I am taking pictures of everything, documenting most of the foods I make and their ingredients, it has made me realize the beauty behind every natural, whole ingredient used. There are few things better than admiring a simple piece of fruit or vegetable that you know grew from the ground without being fed toxic chemicals and pesticides. It is so cool how God gave food such diversity and color, showing the numerous nutrients intended for us to consume to keep us healthy and alive. It is no coincidence how the foods he gave us for direct consumption is our natural medicine. It not only keeps us alive, but it heals us, cures us, makes us feel better, and IS meant to ENJOY.

These past two semesters at school in my nutrition classes, it’s been interesting to hear some of my professors talk about how it is fascinating how certain foods put together make a complete protein, or how eating some vitamin C with your spinach allows the body to better absorb the iron.  I don’t understand how people can truly think that it was by chance how when we put certain minerals and vitamins in our body from their natural source, our bodies thrive and actually function their best. It is no coincidence, the Lord gave us these foods from the ground to nourish us and build us up.

“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.”

Genesis 1:29

So go out to a garden, field, or  local farmers market, and pick some organic living food from the ground and enjoy the beauty and medicine God gave it for our bodies  (:
