Food for Thought

Food is a topic that is often ignored in spiritual circles, except perhaps for the charitable practice of feeding the poor.  I’ve heard it said that God doesn’t care what we eat, placing the emphasis on the idea that God doesn’t care how we look, i.e., too fat or too thin.  Well there’s a lot
