Since I've had it on my heart lately to pretty much eat food that I felt was natural and that God created, I found this especially touching when I opened up my daily devotional and this was in there:
Making Healthy Choices
“And out of the ground the Lord God made to grow every tree that is pleasant to the sight or to be desired-good for food” - Genesis 2:9
Learn to do everything you do for God’s glory, including eating. Look at your dinner plate and ask if what you are about to eat is mostly what God created for you. Don’t view eating as a secular event that has nothing to do with your relationship with God. Don’t forget that God put Adam and Eve in the Garden of Eden and told them what they could eat. If eating had nothing to do with their walk with Him, He probably would not have mentioned food. Make good choices! Each time you choose good healthy foods, you are choosing life, which is God’s gift to you. He wants you to look great and feel great, and you can, if you keep in mind that your body is the temple of God and the fuel you put into it determines how it will operate and for how long.
