Rethinking the Tradition of Food
My parents were born in the 20s and 30s in McComb and Liberty, Mississippi, and I was bred on down home, old fashioned southern values… and cooking.

It was easy to see that a diet full of things fried, smothered, candied or porked was good to me, but not good for me. Knowing better, I had to do better to care for my God given temple.

“Everyday across this nation, many people pray to God to “bless this food we are about to receive to nourish our bodies…” and then proceed to feed on substandard stuff. Filling themselves with too much food providing too little nutrition. Health and wholeness suffers, as millions live beneath their physical potential due to fork-induced, chronic illness and disease. Just imagine the change, if instead of asking God to bless the mess we put in our temples, we took steps to bless and honor God by making healthy choices.”Nettye Johnson
When you eat or drink or do anything else, always do it to honor God. 1 Cor. 10:31 (CEV)
