There is so much nutritional value in many foods mentioned throughout the Bible…
During this episode, Lee Ann discusses the many foods on earth that are referenced through out the Bible that we should be feeding our children.
In John 6:35, Jesus said, “I am the bread of life that came down out of heaven: if anyone eats of this bread, he will live forever; and the bread also which I will give for the life of the world is My flesh.” The bread genome is three completely different genomes in one – a good example of the trinity. Isaiah 55:2, Matthew 6:11, and Acts 2:42 are some of the many other verses in the Bible that reference bread. Bread’s nutrients prevent and control diabetes, prevents digestive disorder, prevents breast cancer, prevents muscle cramps, improves heart function, enhances better memory, and prevents or reduces anxiety and depression.
Barley is discussed in Isaiah, Jeremiah, and John and is mentioned more than 35 times in the word of God. God provided to feed thousands with just five barley loaves. Barley prevents heart disease, reduces cancer, prevents blood clots, and improves immunity.
Grapes are mentioned more than 50 times in scripture. Psalm 104:15 states, “And wine which makes a human heart cheerful, so that he makes his face gleam with oil, and food, which sustain a human heart.” In Isaiah 65:8, we are told that grapes are a blessing, and Jesus said He is the true vine, and his Father is the vinedresser in John 15:1-5. Grapes protect our DNA from damage and strengthen and protect the heart and circulatory system. It minimizes inflammation and is a cancer-prevention food. Figs, pomegranates, dates, and olives are mentioned in the Bible too. Even the branch the bird brought back to Noah was an olive branch!
There are even foods that mirror our body parts:
- Brain-boosting walnuts look like the brain.
- Carrots, which are good for our eyes, when sliced, resemble an eye.
- Celery is good for our bones; both celery and our bones are made of 23 percent sodium. Tomatoes are good for our hearts and, when sliced, resemble the structure of a heart.
- Wine resembles blood and is good for us in controlled quantities.
