Scripture References for My Diet

Genesis. 1: 29 "And God said, Behold, I have given you every HERB bearing seed, which is upon the face of all the earth, and every tree, in the which is the FRUIT of a tree yielding seed; to you it shall be for meat."

 The word "MEAT" in the scriptures means "FOOD".

 D&C 88:

 10 "I say unto you, all wholesome HERBS God hath ordained for the constitution, nature, and use of man."

 The word "HERB" in the scriptures means "PLANT".

 The definition of "CONSTITUTION": The composition or structure of something; The physical makeup of a person.

 The definition of "NATURE": The processes and functions of the body.

 11 "Every HERB in the season thereof, and every FRUIT in the season thereof; all these to be used with prudence and thanksgiving."

 The definition of "PRUDENCE": The ability to govern and discipline oneself by the use of reason. 

16 "the FRUIT of the vine; that which yieldeth FRUIT, whether in the ground or above the ground." 

There are scriptures that refer to the eating of flesh. But I like to follow this one sentence in The Word of Wisdom for the clearly stated reason: D&C 89:13 " is pleasing unto me that they should NOT BE USED."

 There are also scriptures which mention the eating of grains. Of course ancient grains where different than today's grains. They were ground raw,unleavened, & cooked by the heat of the sun. The grains of today make me feel bad & make me gain weight.

 The milk of animals was used, but I believe only on occasion, fresh, raw & by healthy, free animals. Science today shows why it's best to avoid & it makes me ill, have acne, urinary tract infections, and get fat & puffy. Plus my common sense screams to me that it is for the animals babies & not for me.

 So what to eat? LOTS & LOTS of yummy food made by God! :)

 EAT IN ABUNDANCE Whole, fresh, ripe, raw, organic, local (when possible), in season :

 FRUITS (anything with a seed)
NUTS &SEEDS, AVOCADO, COCONUT FLESH, OLIVES (or FATS); eat very limited or within 10% of total calories


ANIMAL EXCRETIONS "milk products & eggs"
BIRD FOOD "grains"
DEHYDRATED or LIGHTLY STEAMED foods are ok when nothing else is available or in transition when craving other cooked foods.

Lately if I'm having cravings or don't have anything else I like to steam organic potatoes, sweet potatoes, corn, & broccoli with some fresh herbs like dill & parsley or dried herbs like paprika, or an organic salt free mix from Costco I like.

Eat for HEALTH! Eat for BEAUTY! Eat for ENERGY! Eat for PLEASURE! Eat for LIFE!

  1. Glad to hear you are doing well. I also suffer from an immune disorder - in my case "Ankylosing Spondylitis". My diet is VERY similar to yours! The diet we use for our condition is called the "No Starch Diet" (NSD). Perhaps the most key point of our diet is: No Grains! Here is the intro part of my blog if you would like to have a look:

    I have added a link to your blog from my "Other blogs" page too :)

    Oh , and for an amazing lady who is raw vegan search for "Annette Larkins". She is truly an inspiration!
