Food Rules, Rule Number Three

Then they said, ‘Come, let us build ourselves a city, and a tower with its top in the heavens, and let us make a name for ourselves; otherwise we shall be scattered abroad upon the face of the whole earth.’

-Genesis 11:4 (NRSV)

Just because you can do something doesn’t mean you should. There are an amazing array of ingredients in modern prepared food, but the fact that they exist and could be used to help food stay edible far longer than it should doesn’t mean that it ought to be done.  Show some restraint in your food choices for a few days, and try to find what it means to eat things with fewer ingredients, closer to natural state.

It is not always easy or convenient to do so, but when you consider the impact of what you are putting into your family’s bodies, you might well decide it’s worth the extra time.

Unless you do perform chemistry experiments in your pantry, Rule Three is a compelling argument for more simplicity.

Pray: God, thank you for accepting me just as I am. Help me to accept the fruits of creation just as they are. It is a blessing to be able to choose such a path. Amen.
