The heavenly father gave us every seed-bearing plant and every tree bearing fruit with seeds for food [Gen 1:29]. In Noah’s time however, meat was added to the list [Gen 9:3]. So, this is not to say we shouldn’t eat meat. However, with all things happening now, it seems a good thing to mind what we eat. Fruits and vegetables are not just food but they also give nutrients that give health and life to the living organisms in the body.
But Daniel purposed in his heart that he would not defile himself with the portion of the king’s delicacies, nor with the wine which he drank; therefore he requested of the chief of the eunuchs that he might not defile himself. – Daniel 1:8
After the 10 day challenge, Daniel and the others didn’t only turn out younger but also were found to be 10 times wiser. The king’s delicacies have now become processed, sugary, fat and salted foods we eat at restaurants and/or imitate from the food shows. This includes even the genetically modified meat we are sold. Now it has become crucial that we rely back on the fruits and plants originally given to us for food.
This challenge is to help us collect recipies that don’t entirely remove meat from our plates, but incorporate it instead of incorporating veges and grains into our meat plates.
We found this one as our first plate from bbcgoodfood.com. It can be enjoyed either as breakfast or lunch.
