Fruit With Our Meal

Most of us think having fruit with our meal is accomplished by buying the fruit so we can cut it up to just pop it into our mouth. That concept of just eating fruit whenever we want may not be as easy as we once thought because it's important to know how and when to eat fruit. We should not eat fruit after our meal because fruit should be eaten on an empty stomach. It will play a major role to detoxify our system if we eat fruit before the meal and this will also supply us with a great deal of energy for weight loss and other life activities.

Let's say we have fruit with our meal when we eat two slices of bread and then a slice of fruit. The slice of fruit is ready to go straight through the stomach into the intestines, but it's prevented from doing so, and therefore the whole meal rots and ferments and turns to acid. The entire mass of food begins to spoil the minute fruit comes in contact with another food in the stomach and digestive juices. People often complain they burp every time they eat watermelon, along with their stomach bloating up, and that they feel a need to run to the rest room when they eat a banana. Most of this will not arise if we eat the fruit on an empty stomach because then the fruit will not mix with other food in our stomach and produce gas and bloating.

Having fruit with our meal is a great way to stay young and healthy and so we should keep in mint that there is no such thing as some fruit like an orange or lemon being acidic because all fruit become alkaline in our body. And also it's best to drink fresh fruit juice that is not from a can and don't even think about drinking juice that has been heated up because cooked fruit with our meal will give the taste without the necessary nutrients. It should be done slowly when we do drink fresh fruit juice because we must let it mix with our saliva before swallowing it. We will have the secret of beauty, longevity, health, energy, happiness and normal weight if we master the correct way of eating fruit. Most of us will be surprised when our friends tell us how radiant we look if we drink fruit juice and enjoy eating nothing but fruit for a few days to cleanse our body.

Kiwis are a good source of potassium, magnesium, vitamin E, fiber and its vitamin C content is twice that of an orange.

Apples have a low vitamin C content, but it has antioxidants and flavonoids that enhance the activity of vitamin C, and thereby helps to lower the risk of colon cancer, heart attacks and strokes.

Strawberries have one of the highest total antioxidant power among any major fruit and therefore will protect the body from cancer-causing, blood vessel-clogging free radicals.

Oranges can be taken two to four a day to help keep colds away, lower cholesterol, prevent and dissolve kidney stones as well as lessen the risk of colon cancer.

Watermelon are composed of ninety-two percent water, but it's also packed with a giant dose of glutathione that helps boost our immune system. They are also a key source of vitamin C, potassium, and lycopene that is the cancer fighting oxidant.

Guava and Papaya are the clear winners for their high vitamin C content. Guava is also rich in fiber, and Papaya is rich in carotene that is good for our eyes.

And by the way, it's nice to have a cold drink after a meal, but it's best to finish that meal with a hot beverage or warm water because cold water will solidify the oily substance that was just consumed. It will slow down the digestion and once this "sludge" reacts with the acid is when it will break down and be absorbed by the intestine faster than the solid food. It will then line the intestine and turn into fat and other junk that will be left in the body. The following link is even a better way to have fruit with our meal.

This starts to make a little bit of sense when we start to realize why Jesus Christ referred to himself as "the bread of life." Food must be eaten, digested, and assimilated to become part of our life that will give strength to our physical bodies. It is written that man shall not live by bread alone. Part of the reason this was written is because the Word of God is food for our spiritual life, and it operates along the same principle as our physical body that needs bread to sustain growth. The nourishment from food is a substance that does not come from within ourselves, but from without, because like the natural realm, the spiritual realm also needs a point of contact outside of the individual. We cannot live on our own feelings, experiences, or upon the sweetest words that come from within, which may excite, warm, or interest us, but cannot support, feed, or sustain our true spiritual growth.

In the new covenant, we are sanctified through the offering of the body of Jesus Christ, who entered into heaven itself to appear in the holy of holies, the sacred chamber of the heart of God's glorious presence for us. Jesus Christ is the promised seed and faithful High Priest, who fulfilled all the law, and is set between God and us because he is connected to both sides, and thereby he is able to work with God and with us. My mind boggles over God's heart of love, His compassion, and the tenderness to have Jesus Christ, who is the greatest food of all time, the bread of life, to establish a true and vital spiritual relationship between God and us.
