In Bible times healthy food was important. So it is today. Let's share good habits.
Apples, grapes, olive oil, honey, onions, pomegranates, fish, and spices like ginger are considered superfoods and found throughout the Bible.
Gain understanding and live well, according to God’s Word!
The olive leaf oil was used in Biblical times to promote healing for cuts and used as an antiseptic.
Walnuts, pistachios, and almonds can lower bad cholesterol, are full of protein, fiber, and can also maintain weight.
“Then their father Israel said to them, “If it must be, then do this: Put some of the best products of the land in your bags and take them down to the man as a gift—a little balm and a little honey, some spices and myrrh, some pistachio nuts and almonds.”
Spelt has more protein than conventional wheat, B2, copper, fiber, and is digested easier. Spelt can help prevent diabetes with its low glycemic index.
“Take wheat and barley, beans and lentils, millet and spelt; put them in a storage jar and use them to make bread for yourself.”
Onions improve vitamin C production, reduce inflammation, regulate blood sugar, and can prevent certain cancers.
“We remember the fish we ate in Egypt at no cost—also the cucumbers, melons, leeks, onions and garlic.”
Vinegar in the Bible is mentioned five times in the Old Testament, and four times in the Gospels of the New Testament.
People in the Bible were certainly familiar with vinegar. They, just like us, used it as a preservative, condiment, medicine, antibiotic, and a detergent.
Vinegar can be made from just about anything fermented, such as dates, figs, grapes, or rye.
Beans were used in the Bible (2 Samuel 17:28) and they probably didn’t know how healthy consuming beans could be.
Beans lower cholesterol, reduce the risk of heart disease, and osteoporosis. The variety of beans seems endless such as lima, soy, navy, pinto, white beans and kidney beans.
Nance thanks. I like this.
"The Hand of God" A houseland plant that saves lives
'Joseph of Arimathea...came and removed the body of Jesus. He was joined by Nicomedus...who brought with him a mixture of myrhh and aloes, more than half a hundredweight. They took the body of Jesus and...wrapped it, with the spices, in strips of linen cloth.' John 19:38-40
Images of the aloe vera plant--a gift to baby Jesus, later used to anoint His body at burial--have been found carved on Egyptian walls from 4,000 B.C.
The word aloe is derived from Arabic alloeh, meaning 'bitter shiny substance.' There are over 300 kinds of aloe.
Most people are familiar with aloe's reputation as a healer of the skin. But what is not commonly known is that aloe vera can be ingested (in juice or capsules).
Taken internally, it is said to have a healing effect on arthritis, ulcers, diabets and more. Some diabetics claim their need for insulin was reduced or eliminated.
One researcher claims that aloe vera works because it contains at least six antiseptic agents--lupeol, salicylic acid, urea nitrogen, cinnomonic acid, phenol, and sulfur. He says the first two of these, plus magnesium are highly effective analgesics, and makes aloe a good pain-killer.
Three anti-inflammatory fatty acids--cholesterol, campesterol, and B-sitosterol--make aloe soothing to the stomach, small instestine, colon, liver, kidney, and pancreas and help heal rheumatoid arthritis, rheumatic fever, ulcers, and allergies. It explains why for thousands of years, aloes have helped heal and cure a momumental list of human ailments and deserve to be called the "Medicine Plant."

Strange Juice Medicine Revealed by the Bible claimed by many to heal ailments quickly
'A land of wheat, and barley, and vines...'
Wheat is specifically in the Bible 52 times. So much wheat was produced that the growing season was used like a calendar to reckon time. Wheat and corn mean the same thing in the Bible. Luke 6:1 refers to Christ's disciples plucking ears of wheat rubbing off the grains in their hands, and eating them.
Wheatgrass - juice, people agreed to follow a diet consisting of vegetables, fresh fruits, sprouts, baby greens, sea vegetables, and sprouted seeds, nuts, and grains, all eaten raw and prepared in tasty combinations.
You can grow your own wheatgrass. All you really need is a place to store your seeds, topsoil, and peat moss; a place to soak the seeds (usually beside a sink); and a place where the trays full of sprouting seeds can get some indirect sunlight. The only expensive iteme you may want to get--because you don't have to grind it by hand--is an electric juicer.
Never drink an entire 8 ounce glass in of wheatgrass in one sitting. The concentrated cleansing effect of that much juice can make you queasy. Drink in small amounts--1 or 2 ounces each time--throughout the day, preferably on an ampty stomach or near-empty stomach. Up to 4 ounces a day, or every other day is sufficient. These 1 or 2 ounce drinks can be taken straight or mixed with other juices.
