Biblical Nutrition Principle #4: Consume Foods that Strengthen Your Immune System

God-given foods: The passage in Genesis 1:29-30 can be interpreted as promoting a diet based on plants with seeds and fruits, which God provided for humankind’s sustenance (Bible Gateway:
Moderation and avoiding excess: The Bible emphasizes moderation and avoiding gluttony (Proverbs 23:20-21). This translates to a balanced diet with no single food group dominating.
Respecting God’s creation: Leviticus 11:1-47 outlines what animals were considered “unclean” for consumption. While some interpret this as dietary restrictions, others see it as a principle of respecting the created order (Bible Gateway: [invalid URL removed]).
Thankfulness and honoring God: The Bible encourages giving thanks for food and using it to glorify God (1 Thessalonians 5:18). This can be seen as a call for mindful eating and appreciating the nourishment our bodies receive.
By focusing on a diet rich in fruits, vegetables, and whole grains, practicing moderation, and being mindful of what you consume, you can align your eating habits with these biblical principles and potentially support your immune system.
It’s important to note that while these principles might be helpful, consulting a doctor or registered dietician for personalized dietary advice is always recommended.
