Your Holy Health - Part 21 - How to Choose Wisely In Restaurants
by Tonja Taylor
2/25/2020 / Health
This should be easier, because there should be more organic restaurants. That is just my personal opinion, and I am praying for more to blossom throughout the nation!
After reading works by several health and nutrition experts, I am appalled at the state of food in the United States of America.
Although I believe that each person is responsible to God for his or her life, there are things the LORD told me to avoid years ago, such as pork and catfish. So, no more ribs for me. But that’s okay.
God was so gracious, because He helped me by informing me that both those beasts eat dead things, and that pork especially has no way for the toxins to escape the body—which means the toxins stay in and go into the person that eats that toxin-infested meat. YUCK.
Because He loves you so much, the LORD will inspire you to make changes, give you the faith to do it, and then help you keep that change, if you really want to do it. He is good!
With restaurant food, it is not as easy—yet—to make good choices. I am glad that some places offer salads and fruit and yogurt and such. Still, if the meat they serve, or the yogurt or ice cream is not organic, it could be full of milk laden with growth hormone that has been proven many times to negatively affect people.
Plus, the bread usually has lots of chemicals you really wouldn’t want to know about, and the way things are prepared might make you want to eat something else if you knew how it was processed or even fried.
So, in a restaurant, you can ask about the meat. Some places do use drug-free meat and veggies; they just don’t advertise it. And you can usually ask for a plate of fruit or meat without the bread or just get a salad and use balsamic vinegar or such. Baked dishes are definitely healthier than fried, especially in fast food restaurants. And choosing salads is a good choice overall.
Also, when you order tea or water in a restaurant, ask for lemon or lime to go with it. Besides enhancing the taste, the lemon or lime will help your body become more alkaline, which helps prevent harmful bacteria. The bad bugs love an acidic environment in your gut—which can be produced by eating too much sugar and starch and such.
Always ask for condiments on the side, so you can control the amount on your food.
Once my husband and I were out of town and really craving a burger and fries (which is rare), and spotted a famous hamburger restaurant. We ordered double cheese burgers and fries and split a chocolate shake. That was so rare of us to eat that way, and man was it good! I may not eat there again, but a good thing about the chain is that they use fresh meat and other food, and fry everything in peanut oil. It makes a difference.
Another reason we could eat that way and enjoy it is because we are very healthy to start with, including ingesting probiotics and good filtered water. The good bugs (probiotics) in us quickly took care of anything not good.
Having eaten out at restaurants for most of my life, I usually have enjoyed it. I have looked forward to it. I still eat out. Of course now, I always pray over our food and ask the LORD to help us make good choices.
Also—and here is another very important thing about being healthy, especially taking probiotics and drinking good water—if your body is healthy to start with, then when you put junk (such as some restaurant food, especially some fast food) into it, the good bugs in your bod will attack the junk coming in and quickly dispose of it, so that it usually won’t affect your health.
So, the best way to eat out is to plan ahead. It is best to eat good things before you go to the grocery store, to a friend’s house, to a party, or even (and sometimes especially!) to your mother’s. Even drinking a couple of glasses of filtered water before these events will help prevent hunger and also flush your bod of impurities.
You don’t want to push it, and part of your resistance to health challenges is of course, the way you think about things. Ask the LORD to help you think right about what you should put in your body—that is really His body, if you have received Christ (I Corinthians 6:20).
Each to his own, but if you want to live long and strong, my advice is to base your life on the Word and ask Him to help you make better choices in every area of life, including eating out.
