“That is not real food.”
Real food is allowed and beneficial.
Fake food is something we are given the choice to consume
but not only is it unhelpful for good health (lack of proper nutrition),
the lab-created ingredients actually cause damage to our bodies.
As I continue this food journey during the holidays,
many old favorites have come into view and as I scan the labels of ingredients,
I realize the wisdom in placing them back on the shelf.
Sometimes it’s hard.
REALLY HARD.
However, I will yield because God has provided many delicious foods for us,
some that have, in recent years, been falsely labeled unhealthy. 
God created each of us and knows what our bodies need.
I will yield because I trust His heart for me. I will yield because I trust His wisdom.
I will yield because I enjoy the good things He provided
that are restoring my health.
I may not be able to retrieve the lost years,
but I can invest in the remaining time I have.
Health is not out of reach and is worth far more than any fake food could ever be.

“I will repay you for the years the locusts have eaten— 
the great locust and the young locust,
  the other locusts and the locust swarm—my great army that I sent among you.
You will have plenty to eat, until you are full, and you will praise the name of the LORD your God, who has worked wonders for you;
never again will my people be shamed.
Then you will know that I am in Israel, that I am the LORD your God,
and that there is no other; never again will my people be shamed.
Joel 2:25-27
