“And God said, Behold, I have given you every herb bearing seed, which is upon the face of all the earth,
and every tree, in the which is the fruit of a tree yielding seed;
to you it shall be for meat [food].”
This is the basic nutrition plan that God laid out for us in the very beginning. The sooner we realize that God who made the body has a plan for taking care of the body, the healthier we will be. And the sooner we start feeding our children according to God’s plan, the healthier they will be and the easier it will be to train them for a lifetime of eating healthy.
Food and lifestyle should be our first step in staying well. If you have been taking care of yourself, you should have a better immunity to help fight any virus you come in contact with. Just like proper fuel in your car keeps it from breaking down, fueling your body with proper nutrients will keep you from getting sick. If you have been procrastinating eating better and exercising, now is the time to take this seriously for your health and the health of your family.
The first book I read on this subject was What the Bible Has to Say About Healthy Living. I highly recommend it.
