The Land of Plenty

Deuteronomy 8:8

" ...a land of wheat and barley, of vines and fig trees and pomegranates, a land of olive oil and honey..."

Here is a site for Biblical nutrition. It is interesting to note that all of these foods are referenced as being health conscious (not that we don't all know this, huh?). It is also noteworthy that I eat virtually none of them (although I do love most of them).

I am not very familiar with the book "The Maker's Diet", but have certainly heard of the correlation between eating a healthy diet and longevity, a reduction of aches and pains and ails, etc. (just because we live in Iowa, doesn't make us stoopid). lol

Perhaps I could delve into this a bit? (thoughtful pause--stroking chin). My super-duper fit and healthy vegetarian brother is coming soon, so he would be impressed and could coach me?

Hmmmm.....(more thoughtful, chin-stroking).

I've had the interest and grace to apply a great deal of the Bible to other areas of my life, why not this one? I'm betting there is no good answer to this question.

Shucks. [wry grin]
