Let Food Be Thy Medicine

Did you know that eating out can be hazardous to your health?  Now, I know you can't control everything in life and there should be good times but we must be knowledgeable, not living our lives blindly.

Our family use to get some food from Oscars {a restaurant here in San Diego} frequently.  Most of us had stomach aches after eating their food.  I finally read the ingredients on their salad dressing.  It was filled with chemicals that should not be eaten. I am sure most of their food contained cheap, artificial ingredients.  This restaurant eventually went out of business. 

The Food Babe gave a detailed description of the ingredients from different foods at Panera.  There were some bad chemicals in many of their foods and it is suppose to be a more "healthy" alternative.

Dr. Marshall always said on his radio program that eating out is playing Russian Roulette with your health.  You have no idea what is in the food and restaurants usually cut a lot of corners by using bad chemicals and preservatives in their food.

Cancer, heart disease, diabetes, and auto immune diseases are skyrocketing.  The news recently reported that half of all men will get cancer and a third of all women.  There are many things you can do to help prevent cancer and these other disease.  The most important thing you can do is to stay away from all types of chemicals.

Krapf Macaroni and Cheese has two artificial dyes added to it which contain petroleum in them.  Europe is not allowed to use these chemicals so they use food sources to dye their food.  Their Krapf Macaroni and Cheese is dyed with some herb and tastes just as good.  America uses chemicals because they are cheaper.

So go ahead and eat out once in awhile but make most of your food at home using good, organic ingredients.  Know what it is in your food.  Hippocrates is considered the father of Western Medicine. Some of his wise advice included, "Let food be thy medicine & let thy medicine be food."

Eat food the way God intended for us to eat.  Anything boxed or canned is processed and is usually bad for your health.  Health is a terrible thing to lose. I know. Protect your health.  Be wise in what you put into your body.

Or do you not know that your body
is a temple of the Holy Spirit within you,
whom you have from God?
You are not your own,
I Corinthians 6:19
