There is a divinely appointed connection between
sin and disease....
Sin and disease bear to each other the relationship of
cause and effect.
—Testimonies for the Church 5:443.

..my how my mind was blown! the day I discovered the flavour sensation of adding leafy greens to my morning fruit salad. I used kale simply because that it was I had in my fridge at the time, but I have since tried baby spinach and....... ummm!! yummm!!! When leafy greens are eaten with fruit, their medicinal qualities increase twofold.
1 stem Kale (trimmed from spine)
👏 bowl: chopped kale & fruit, combine well
* sit for 30mins before eating; to allow the fruit's juices to make the kale tender
..this simple salad is refreshing not just to the palate, but also to one's health
Have this for breakfast every morning and you'll be giving your immune system a boost! with the following being just a few of the health benefits:
- Apples: provide living water. The fruit acids in apples help cleanse the liver. Apples starve out bacteria, yeast, mold, other funguses, and viruses from the intestinal tract and liver. Great for dissolving gallstones.
- Oranges: provide a combination of calcium and vitamin C. Oranges are a great fruit that allows for easy absorption and conversion of nutrients. They have an ability to uproot and disperse sludge and sediment that can settle in the gallbladder.
- Mangoes: have a unique phytochemical compound that helps the liver's immune system destroy the pockets of bacteria that create liver abscesses. Mangoes help your liver from aging and cells from dying while improving bile production.
- Apricots: offer easily assimilable vitamin A, are rich in antioxidants, and help prevent aging.
- Kiwis: fruit acid has a dissolving effect on gallstones unlike any other. Kiwis also provide various nutrients upon which the liver relies.
- Coconut: when only used in small amounts, is very helpful in lowering viral and bacterial loads.
Add some kale too or baby spinach, like in my Kiwi + Kale salad, and boost your salad's medicinal qualities by twofold!
1/4 fresh Coconut meat
👏 bowl: chopped fruit, combine well
* the juice from the fruits will be plenty to dress this fruit salad, no added juice required.

—Testimonies for the Church 3:161.
The Lord will not work a miracle to preserve any one in health who will not make an effort to obtain knowledge within his reach concerning this wonderful habitation that God has given.
By the study of the human organism we are to learn to correct what may be wrong in our habits, and which, if left uncorrected, will bring the sure result, disease and suffering, that make life a burden....
Let the mind become intelligent, and the will be placed on the Lord's side, and there will be a wonderful improvement in the physical health. But this can never be accomplished in mere human strength.

made in the image of God, and designed to be a counterpart of God....
Man is very dear to God, because he was formed in his own image.
This fact should impress us with the importance of teaching
by precept and example the sin of defiling,
by the indulgence of appetite or by any other sinful practise,
the body which is designed to represent God to the world.
—The Review and Herald, June 18, 1895.
and he that is unjust in the least is unjust also in much.
Luke 16:10 KJV
the wonderful work of God's hand, formed in the image of the divine,
they will seek to bring their bodies into subjection
to the noble powers of the mind.
The body will be regarded by them as a wonderful structure,
formed by the Infinite Designer,
and given into their charge to be kept in harmonious action.
—The Health Reformer, September 1, 1871.
to treat as we please, to cripple by habits that lead to decay,
making it impossible to render to God perfect service.
Our lives and all our faculties belong to him.
He is caring for us every moment; he keeps the living machinery in action;
if we were left to run it for one moment, we should die.
We are absolutely dependent upon God.
—Unpublished Testimonies, October 12, 1896.
He created him that every faculty might be
the faculty of the divine mind.
The glory of God is to be revealed
in the creating of man in God's image, and in his redemption.
One soul is of more value than a world.
The Lord Jesus is the author of our being,
and he is also the author of our redemption;
and every one who will enter the kingdom of God
must develop a character that is
the counterpart of the character of God.
None can dwell with God in a holy heaven
but those who bear his likeness.
Those who are redeemed will be overcomers;
they will be elevated, pure,
one with Christ.

🍞 KJV Psalms 103:1-5
Bless the LORD, O my soul: and all that is within me, bless his holy name.
Bless the LORD, O my soul, and forget not all his benefits:
Who forgiveth all thine iniquities; who healeth all thy diseases;
Who redeemeth thy life from destruction; who crowneth thee with lovingkindness and tender mercies;
Who satisfieth thy mouth with good things; so that thy youth is renewed like the eagle’s.
🍞 KJV 1 John 5:14,15
And this is the confidence that we have in him, that, if we ask any thing according to his will, he heareth us:
And if we know that he hear us, whatsoever we ask, we know that we have the petitions that we desired of him.
🍞 KJV Psalms 37:3-5
Trust in the LORD, and do good; so shalt thou dwell in the land, and verily thou shalt be fed.
Delight thyself also in the LORD; and he shall give thee the desires of thine heart.
Commit thy way unto the LORD; trust also in him; and he shall bring it to pass.
Therefore I say unto you, What things soever ye desire, when ye pray, believe that ye receive them, and ye shall have them.
🍞 2 Corinthians 5:17
Therefore if any man be in Christ, he is a new creature: old things are passed away; behold, all things are become new.
On February 11th 2018, I bowed in repentance and with a contrite heart before my God.
Uplifting my tearful plead for forgiveness and intense petition to be a vessel meet for His purpose, I prayed with thankfulness for opening my eyes to the truth.
I was unaware of the path God had now set my feet upon 👣 Praise the Lord!
Not only, as the verse says, “old things are passed away; behold, all things are become new”, but He has given me new desires of my heart. [Ps 37:4]
From one who before had absolutely no interest in time invested in cooking, from one who was bound by seemingly unconquerable attachments to particular foods, from one who though knowing the truth would indulge my lower passions and give in to appetite rather than exercise strength of will and control by exercising higher powers. From this such one.. comes this blog 💞 glory to God!
Through this blog I hope to share the journey that God takes me on in exploring the ‘science above all other sciences’ - cooking! [MM270.6]
As He leads me into new heights of health exploration, I pray you can join in to partake of the blessings also.
And it is my prayer that He leads you in the most monumental blessings that make up the testimony of your own experience 🙏
🍞 KJV Mark 11:22,23
And Jesus answering saith unto them, Have faith in God.
For verily I say unto you, That whosoever shall say unto this mountain, Be thou removed, and be thou cast into the sea; and shall not doubt in his heart, but shall believe that those things which he saith shall come to pass; he shall have whatsoever he saith.
📚 It is for our own benefit to keep every gift of God fresh in our memory. Thus faith is strengthened to claim and to receive more and more. There is greater encouragement for us in the least blessing we ourselves receive from God than in all the accounts we can read of the faith and experience of others. The soul that responds to the grace of God shall be like a watered garden. His health shall spring forth speedily; his light shall rise in obscurity, and the glory of the Lord shall be seen upon him. Let us then remember the loving-kindness of the Lord, and the multitude of His tender mercies. Like the people of Israel, let us set up our stones of witness, and inscribe upon them the precious story of what God has wrought for us. And as we review His dealings with us in our pilgrimage, let us, out of hearts melted with gratitude, declare, “What shall I render unto the Lord for all His benefits toward me? I will take the cup of salvation, and call upon the name of the Lord. I will pay my vows unto the Lord now in the presence of all His people.” Psalm 116:12-14. DA 348.2
