Good Carbs Vs. Bad Carbs
3 pertinent questions:
1. Did God make this?
2. How refined or “man-made” is my food?
3. Does my Temple deserve better?
To Mr. Apple:
Did God make you? Yes, God made me. I as an apple came straight from Nature.
How refined or “man-made” are you? I am not refined. I did not go through any processes to become a food product. I started as an apple, and I ended as an apple.
Does my Temple deserve better than you? I am a reasonable food choice, because I will help you keep your temple fit for God’s service.
Did God make you? No, God did not make me as a cookie. He made the sources of my ingredients, but not me. I, as a cookie, cannot be found in Nature.
How refined or “man-made” are you? I am made of mostly flour. Flour comes from wheat plants. The plant goes through heating, degerming, milling, and bleaching before it come to be what you see today. There are a number of steps that get me from a plant to a cookie.
Does my Temple deserve better than you? Yes, I can curb your sweet tooth, but I cannot support your temple.
“Primarily choosing the healthiest carbohydrate sources, while moderating intake of those that are less healthful, contributes to a well-planned diet.”
