Family Gathering!

Food and family gatherings go together like peas in a pod. Yesterday our extended family got together to celebrate the return of one of my nieces, who had spent 18 months in Greece. We had a wonderful time together visiting and enjoying various Mediterranean and Greek food dishes. What fun times! Colleen and I brought a huge vegetable tray with a wide assortment of…

Animal Intelligence!

I love this cartoon that was sent to Colleen and I by a friend. If you have ever noticed how intelligent animals are, you may enjoy a good laugh reading this cartoon. And, I hope you will take the time to appreciate how animals live in families and communities as we do; they teach their young, they have great…

Mad Chef Dietary Creations!

Okay! For the past two weeks Colleen and I have been playing in the kitchen trying to create some new recipes that further enable a healthful diet. We have experienced quite a few hits and misses, more misses than usual. In fact, before this week's Chia Ranch Dressing came into being, we also learned to make chia ranch mortar and chia ranch brick,…

Parable of the Pumpkin

It was nearly halloween and a mother had taken her young children to a nearby farmer’s field to see all the pumpkins the farmer had grown. The farmer was gentle and kind and invited the children to go out into his pumpkin patch and to gather pumpkins of every size and shape. Some were small, some tall,… Continue

Sweeteners, Part 2

In this article, which is the second part of a two-part series on sweeteners, we will focus attention on traditional sweeteners that are a bit more natural and whole than the sweeteners discussed in Sweeteners, Part 1. They are not perfect and some of them may seem to be of little difference when compared to some sweeteners in part 1. However, each of the sugars discussed today contain a fuller compliment of vitamins and minerals to help balance their impact upon the human body than the… Continue

Sweeteners, Part 1

There have been so many comments and questions that have hit my inbox regarding sweeteners I thought I would deal with it now rather than later, as I was planning to do. Modern manmade processed and refined or artificial sweeteners include white granulated sugar, powdered sugar, raw sugar, unbleached sugar, cane sugar, beet sugar, brown sugar, high fructose corn syrup, agave, sucralose, cyclamate, asperrtame, and saccharin. Not one of these is actually good for you. They are each a result of a… Continue

Mustard Seed, Part 3-Summary

Today there are so many competing notions regarding weight loss and a healthful dietary lifestyle. There is only one true Master dietician. He is the ultimate chemist and is omniscient.

He understands where the seed of health lies in your body and how to overcome any poor health conditions you face. Regardless of the current state of your body, he alone can diagnose and prescribe the perfect… Continue

Mustard Seed - Part 2

Faith is a principle of action and of power. In the first blog about the mustard seed and how the faith of the mustard seed pertains to dietary lifestyle success, we spoke of faith primarily as a principle of action. To enjoy such faith it is important to discover God's dietary lifestyle pattern for you and to act according to that pattern. What is faith according the principle of power and how does exercising such faith enable you more fully in dietary lifestyle… Continue

God's Dietary Pattern for Man - Mustard Seed

The kingdom of heaven is like unto a grain of mustard seed; which when it is sown in the earth, is less than all the seeds that be in the earth: and yet it grows, and waxes into a great tree; that fowls of the air lodge in the branches of it. If ye have the faith of a mustard seed, ye shall say unto this mountain; remove hence to yonder place; and it shall remove; or unto this sycamine tree, be thou plucked up by the root, and be thou planted in the sea, and it should obey you; and nothing… Continue

God's Dietary Pattern for Man - Grains, Part 2

In grains part 1 we concluded by asking the following questions: What is a staff? What is its purpose? What is its most healthful relationship to herbs, fruits, vegetables, nuts, seeds, and animal-based foods? How is grain best prepared for our healthful use? If we prepare it correctly, how much of it should be prudently included in our diets and how much is too much? How is it commonly used today that causes problems? What are the most common problems associated with grain usage among animals… Continue

God's Dietary Pattern for Man - Grains, Part 1

"All grain is ordained for the use of man and of beasts, to be the staff of life..."

When you throw a rock onto water, does it sink immediately? I tossed a big boulder into a pond the other day as my boys and I attempted to see who could create the biggest splashes. With all the authority in the world I can say that if you throw a rock onto water it will sink... Or will it? This morning I watched a father teaching his sons how to skip rocks. It was delightful! With…

God's Dietary Pattern for Man - Science

I do not want to leave the impression from any former blog in this series, God's Dietary Pattern for Man, that I believe the works of science to be of little value; quite the opposite is true. Most researchers earnestly seek truth and are rewarded for their efforts by discovering truths that help put the entire tapestry of any subject… Continue

God's Dietary Pattern for Man - Living Foods

Consider the last funeral you attended. Evident at any viewing of a loved one is the fact that when the spirit or human intelligence leaves the body, there is nothing left but a corpse that has already begun its return journey to the dust. He or she whom we dearly loved has gone elsewhere. Respectfully, this is important imagery that can help to understand the topic at hand—living foods. God assigns to all organized matter known as plants, intelligences and gives to them a pattern of operation… Continue

God's Dietary Pattern for Man - Prudence

In the previous post we considered scriptures that speak of the foods which God ordained for man. All wholesome foods (not processed and refined foods) both in and above the ground were ordained for our use to be used with prudence and thanksgiving. Animals were also ordained for our use, to be used sparingly, not with excess, and absent of extortion. It is even pleasing to God if we choose to use them only in times of winter, cold, or… Continue

God's Dietary Pattern for Man

Do you remember what it is like to have your body vibrate at the speed of love, joy, and accomplishment? Do you want to see things clearly, think accurately, feel accordingly, and act with greater alignment to truth than you do now? Do you believe that what you see, think, feel, and do impacts your happiness or that your health impacts the way these four things harmonize within you? I have come to know the best dietary lifestyle programs in the world while coming to better understand why the… Continue
