Is the food you are eating God-made or man-made?

Introduction

Gen 1:10-13 OOYLT And God calleth to the dry land `Earth,' and to the collection of the waters He hath called `Seas;' and God seeth that it is good. And God saith, `Let the earth yield tender grass, herb sowing seed, fruit-tree (whose seed is in itself) making fruit after its kind, on the earth:' and it is so. And the earth bringeth forth tender grass, herb sowing seed after its kind, and tree making fruit (whose seed is in itself) after its kind; and GOD SEETH THAT IT GOOD; and there is an evening, and there is a morning -- day third.

Everything especially plant-based food God created was good. It is sinful man that messed food. For a healthier lifestyle, eat a higher percentage of God-made food.

There is a difference between natural sugar and processed sugar. There is a difference between unsaturated and saturated fat. There is difference between hybrid and GMO foods. There is a a need to eat less ultra-processed food. There are differences in how wheat bread are labeled - do not be tricked by marketing.

We can also benefit from following the advices given in the bible. That is, avoid eating the blood and eat kosher food.

God-made foods like grape and pineapple have natural sugar. Many man-made foods like donuts and cakes have processed sugar. There a difference. See

Difference between Hybrid and GMO foods

Hybrid and GMO (genetically modified organisms) are not the same. All GMO foods are high-tech hybrid foods. Low-tech hybrid foods are not GMO foods. See quotes from

Hybrid Seeds vs. GMOs
https://www.foodrenegade.com/hybrid-seeds-vs-gmos/

Farmers and gardeners have been cultivating new plant varieties for thousands of years through selective breeding. They did this by cross-pollinating two different, but related plants over 6 to 10 plant generations, eventually creating a new plant variety.

Unlike hybrid seeds, GMO seeds are not created using natural, low-tech methods. GMO seed varieties are created in a lab using high-tech and sophisticated techniques like gene-splicing.

In short: Hybrid Seeds are nothing to fear, but you may not want to support them given that they fail to breed true and have caused so much global havoc. GMO seeds are far more unnatural and likely to cause harm - both to your environment and your health.

Avoid eating blood

There are numerous verses where the bible instruct us not to drink the blood. This command is given in the OT and NT. Below, is a few of them.

Gen 9:3-4 OOYLT
Every creeping thing that is alive, to you it is for food; as the green herb I have given to you the whole; only flesh in its life -- its blood -- ye do not eat.

Deut 12:15-16 OOYLT
'Only, with all the desire of thy soul thou dost sacrifice, and hast eaten flesh according to the blessing of Jehovah thy God which He hath given to thee, in all thy gates; the unclean and the clean do eat it, as of the roe, and as of the hart. 'Only, the blood ye do not eat -- on the earth thou dost pour it as water;

Acts 15:19-20 OOYLT
wherefore I judge: not to trouble those who from the nations do turn back to God, but to write to them to abstain from the pollutions of the idols, and the whoredom, and the strangled thing; and the blood;

Acts 21;25 OOYLT
'And concerning those of the nations who have believed, we have written, having given judgment, that they observe no such thing, except to keep themselves both from idol-sacrifices, and blood, and a strangled thing, and whoredom.'

Avoid messing up food

Today, people especially Americans, are eating too much man-made food - I am guilty myself. Man messed up foods. Try to eat a higher percentage of God-made food. In general, it is better to cook from scratch than eating prepared food - just do not mess the dish up with excess sugar, transfat/saturated fat, and salt. If you buy any man-made food, read the nutrient label and the ingredient list. Avoid stuffs with excess sugar, transfat/saturated fat, salt. And avoid products with a long list of ingredients you can not name. Also avoid corn, soybean, and tofu, unless they are GMO-free or organic.
