Eat Like Jesus Ate The Foods from the Bible
Who wants to eat like Jesus? To me eating like Jesus would mean a lot of fruits and vegetables as well as breads and grains. We all know that Jesus was a carpenter and was also know that a carpenter must eat right in order to do a good job. There are two scriptures dealing with food in the Bible and they are: Psalm 78:25 and Corinithans 9:30. 'Eat Like Jesus' is a very short book that lists the 10 best foods that Jesus and his disciples along with others ate during Biblical times. The foods ranged from fish, raw honey, olives, olive oil, sprouted grains and breads, goat milk and products, fruit, spices and seasonings and herbs, beans and lentils, nuts and flax. The glossy, glorious pictures in this short book were beautiful to look at, as well as the nutritional information of each type of food were detailed for understanding how these ten foods are healthy then and still are today. The authors of the Appalachian Project are the ones who wrote this book that also included various biblical scripture from Psalms to Leviticus to Luke to Mark. As you see both the Old and New Testaments were referenced. Psalm 78 verses 24 and 25 says "And he rained down manna upon them for them to eat, and had giveth them corn from heaven." "Man did eat angels' food: he sent them meat in the fall." 2nd Corinthians 9:10 says, "Now he that ministers the seed to the savior both minister bread for your food; and multiply your seed sown and increase the fruits of your righteousness."
Speaking of olives and olive oil the article mentions the Garden of Gemsceme and how flax was grown in the Bible and grown on farms then and now. It mentions raw honey and mentions how honey has many uses from nutrition to a topical health aid. This short book also mentions fish and how Jesus were/was able to feed the citizens. Fruits and vegetables were mentioned even for drinking the wine for the citizens. The most important food that we all need to consume is the food of knowledge we can receive from the Bible. This book of faith and good works will make us all healthy, wealthy and wise just as this old adage says.

I eat a fair amount of flax seed, it's good fiber. I love raw honey too. And we had lentils for tea today.
