Arletia Mayfield shares tips and insights for full-time RV living and the missionary lifestyle.

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. ~ Genesis 1:29 ~

Carnivore and Proud!

In the beginning, God created all the vegetable and fruit bearing seeds and made them food for Adam and Eve. Today, some people adhere to strict eating guidelines motivated by religion, preference, conscience, or dietary restrictions as a result of disease or sickness.

It's interesting how animals know exactly what to eat and they instinctively eat what they were created to eat, unless environmental factors force them to change their diet. It's in their DNA. And to every beast of the earth, and to every fowl of the air, and to every thing that creepeth upon the earth, wherein [there is] life, [I have given] every green herb for meat: and it was so. [Genesis 1:3]. Human beings, on the other hand, are the most intelligent creatures on earth, with free will to do anything we want to do, but there are consequences to everything that we do - an instant or cumulative reaction for everything we put into our body or in the earth.

Admittedly, it is not easy to eat healthy when a lot of organic food is so much more expensive than the contaminated foods - not to mention all the preservatives and additives in packaged foods. But, we are empowered with knowledge at our fingertips. In fact, if you're reading this right now, you are being empowered.

If you are struggling with the idea of eliminating harmful foods and ingredients from your diet, I want to encourage you to take it one day at a time. Here are some small steps you can take in the right direction:

  • Make fresh vegetables and fruit the majority of the food on your plate. If you're busy, buy pre-washed, fresh packaged or frozen vegetables and fruit. They make dishes and smoothies quick and easy to prepare..
  • Substitute red meat and pork for cage-free, farm raised chicken and eggs, wild-caught fish and turkey. Eat meat in small quantities.
  • Don't eat canned or boxed food or frozen meals. Make up a batch of beans, greens, stir-fry, brown rice or roasted veggies on the weekend to eat during the week.
  • Opt for a smoothie or oatmeal for breakfast (no sugar) with raisins, dates, cranberries and nuts. Other natural sweeteners include Stevia, raw honey, agave, dates, banana, apple sauce and unsweetened fruit juice.
  • At restaurants, choose one of the healthy choice options.
  • Snack on fruit and nuts. Make up small trail mix bags and keep them in your purse at the office and in your car - add an apple and fresh water to that to get you through the day in case you can't take lunch. It will curb your hunger and give you energy.
  • Eat at least one large salad every day (for lunch or dinner). Use a variety of greens, and vegetables including broccoli, celery, carrots, radish, cabbage, etc. Get creative with it - add shredded or chopped chicken, nuts, raisins, cranberries, feta cheese, etc. and forego the fattening dressing for a simple vinagrette of lemon juice, balsamic vinegar and a little olive oil.
  • Use spices to give your dishes flavor. Avoid store-bought sauces with preservatives and artificial inredients.
  • Drink lots of distilled water

Big results come from making small changes. Remember, changing the way you eat will cause a reaction. You will feel better, have more energy, lose weight, and your hair, skin and eyes can also benefit from healthy dietary changes - ultimately giving you a more youthful appearance and more stamina. In short, there are massive benefits to eating more fresh, raw, vegetables and fruits - the way God originally intended. Be well. Live long. God bless you.
