What is Divine Nutrition?

23 May

Divine Nutrition is food that honours the original  law of dietary consciousness which states…

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

A Definition of a Divine Nutritionist

  1. A specialist in Divine Nutrition; a person who plans and/or formulates meals based on the original dietary consciousness as found in Genesis 1:29. Divine meaning Holy, holystic/holistic, pleasing to the Creator, whole, sacred, regenerative, sustainable, Eco-friendly, organic, life-giving, detoxifying, essential, nourishing, delicious, satisfying …
  2. A Divine Nutritionist only uses 100% plant-based produce to create meals; all plant-based foods grow in organic soil, and are, preferably, organic.  Examples include vegan and pure vegetarian meals containing  whole foods: fruits or vegetables with seeds; herbs, nuts, beans, pulses, legumes, leafy green vegetables, wild greens, dried fruits, sprouts, ground provisions, edible flowers, grains, sea vegetables, cold pressed oils, super foods and natural sweeteners etc.;
  3. A Divine Nutritionist prepares meals that may have the ability to maintain good health and prevent and may reverse diet-related diseases such as constipation, bloating, GERD, cancers, diabetes, infertility, heart disease, high blood pressure, gall stones, kidney stones, obesity, stress…etc.

Divine Nutritionist’s Guidelines

  1. A good Divine Nutritionist must have three important qualities
    1. A willing spirit
    2. Consistency
    3. Cleanliness
  2. It is a good practice to use vegetables and fruits that are in season.
  3. All fruits and vegetables must be washed and rinsed before use.
  4. Avoid peeling vegetables unless absolutely necessary because many nutrients are found just under the skin.
  5. You will use less spices when cooking at a medium-to-low flame because at that temperature the spices cook through food.
  6. When adding sea salt, amino liquid or tamari sauce, add a little at a time to the recipe, tasting it to ensure that dishes are not too salty.
  7. Make breakfast and lunch your heaviest meals. Eating heavily at a late hour may cause poor digestion, weight gain and stomach discomforts.
  8. Use long grain rice; it cooks fluffiest and has a tendency to be less starchy.
  9. Avoid using leftovers of three days old or more because it no longer provides any nutrients and may have acquired a refrigerator taste. This practice will help you avoid unhealthy incidents.
  10. When making cakes, use unsalted, non-hydrogenated vegan margarine to avoid trans fats and salted margarine leaves a slightly salty flavor in cakes and cookies.
  11. Even though these recipes are measured, experienced cooks may adjust ingredients according to taste.
  12. Provide for effective digestion, the cornerstone to good health, by following food combining principles when planning your meals.

Hygiene Standards

When one has transitioned to a 100% plant-based, vegan eating habits, the digestive system develops a keen sensitivity to non-vegan foods, for the majority of people. Therefore, anyone who is not vegan and is embarking on this adventure to impress someone who is vegan must bear in mind that these divine dishes must be prepared separately from non-vegan dishes.

Considerations:

  1. As a minimum, all surfaces and all utensils, where this divine meal will be prepared, must be thoroughly sanitized prior to being used for vegan food preparation.
  2. If you live in a household with meat eaters, I strongly recommend that a separate set of utensils be procured for this purpose, and is only used for the preparation of divine plant-based meals.
  3. Be conscious of the risk of cross-contamination from non-vegan sources in your nutrition room, and take all relevant and practical steps to avoid this becoming an issue for ill-health.

Choose Life Well!
