This is easily one of the most controversial Biblical subjects I have ever talked about.
Many people believe that since these 5 foods appear in the Old Testament, that they don’t apply to us.
Others believe that since they are ‘banned’ by the Bible, regardless of where they appear, that we must abide.
Whatever your opinion is, I’m going to show you what the Bible actually says about these foods, and why it matters to you, right now -today.
And most importantly I’m going to show you what you SHOULD BE EATING.
There are dozens of foods the Bible says we should eat, and I’ve discovered a fast and easy way to consume these foods and drastically improve your health.
So, what are these 5 FOODS?

[features_box_yellow width=”75%” + border=”2px”]“Now the Lord spoke to Moses and Aaron, saying to them “speak to the children of Israel saying to them, ‘These are the animals which you may eat among all the animals that are on the earth: Among the animals, whatever divides the hoof, having cloven hooks and chewing the cud – that you may eat.” –Leviticus 11:1-3[/features_box_yellow]
Did you know that many pigs carry a variety of parasites in their meat? Some of these parasites are difficult to kill even when cooking. Pigs also digest food very quickly which means it becomes part of their flesh. This means when you eat pork you are just one step and several hours removed from whatever filth the pig consumed.
I don’t know about you, but I don’t feel good about eating anything that I first have to kill bacteria just to eat it.
Pigs carry many diseases with them. And by eating their meat we put ourselves at higher risk of getting one of these painful, often debilitating diseases (not to mention put our bodies on toxic overload.)
This is probably the most well-known, and ignored, of the ‘banned foods’. (If you want a healthy, clean protein replacement, take a look at this.)

[features_box_yellow width=”75%” + border=”2px”]“Do not eat it with bread made with yeast, but for seven days eat unleavened bread” – Deuteronomy 16:3[/features_box_yellow]
Here’s one the Government would rather you didn’t know.
That’s because they’ve pushed the benefits of breads on us for years. But even most of these breads contain sugars and starchy yeasts, which contribute to weight gain.
And you don’t have to be making your own bread. In fact sticking to breads like flat breads and sourdough breads that are made without yeast will help your health and your checkbook.
These kinds of breads help with your digestion and can rid your body of bacteria.
There’s a reason why gluten allergies are exploding in this country. That’s because the wheat we now produce in this country bears little resemblance to the bread of our Biblical ancestors.
Fortunately there is a way to get all the benefits of healthy grains without the weight gain. I’ll reveal that below…
[headline_arial_medium_left color=”#000000″]#3 Extremely Undercooked Meats[/headline_arial_medium_left]
[features_box_yellow width=”75%” + border=”2px”]“Just as I gave you the green plants, I now give you everything. But you must not eat meat that has its lifeblood still in it.” – Genesis 9:3-4[/features_box_yellow]
Eating uncooked or undercooked meats expose you to e. coli, almost every type of bacteria imaginable, and dozens of potential diseases.
God was warning Noah in this passage not to eat bloody meat, knowing that it could cause disease.
So can we still eat ‘rare’ meat? Absolutely. What we commonly refer to as ‘bloody’ or rare-cooked meats don’t actually have blood seeping out of them.
The red liquid, instead, is a mixture of water and a protein called myoglobin, whose purpose is to help ship oxygen to muscle cells.
In a moment, I’ll show you how to get all the protein you would get from a steak, without cooking or preparing a meal…
[headline_arial_medium_left color=”#000000″]#4 Animals That Have Diseases[/headline_arial_medium_left]
[features_box_yellow width=”75%” + border=”2px”]‘He shall not eat an animal which dies or is torn by beasts, becoming unclean by it; I am the LORD.
Leviticus 22:8 [/features_box_yellow]
At first, this may sound strange.
The meat you find at your local grocery store must be healthy for you right?
A quick search on YouTube will show you the horrible conditions in modern slaughterhouses. Many of these animals are sick and even die before slaughter – but they’re used anyways.
Remember, when you eat an animals flesh, you are basically eating what it eats. The same way that animals treated with antibiotics or hormones are bad for us.
If these animals were healthy to begin with, why would they need to be pumped full of drugs and antibiotics just to make them fit for eating?
This is a quick and easy way to get the vital nutrients of a meat-based diet WITHOUT all the antibiotics and hormones…
[headline_arial_medium_left color=”#000000″]#5 Shellfish[/headline_arial_medium_left]
[features_box_yellow width=”75%” + border=”2px”]“But whatever is in the seas and in the rivers that does not have fins and scales among all the teeming life of the water, and among all the living creatures that are in the water, they are detestable things to you.” – Leviticus 11:10[/features_box_yellow]
More Americans are allergic to shellfish than any other food.
Think about it….when you hear someone who get sick after a meal shellfish is usually the answer.
It’s no shock then that the Lord forbids this type of seafood.
Yes, if you’re not allergic you can still indulge now and then. But avoiding them will make you healthier and less susceptible to deadly food poisoning incidents.
Plus many of the incredible health benefits of eating shellfish (like improved cartilage in joints, better mental clarity, and a stronger immune system) can be had without eating shellfish, read on…
Now I know what you’re thinking…
[headline_arial_medium_centered color=”#000000″]There Are Plenty of Rules in the Bible We Don’t Follow, Why Should I Care About These?[/headline_arial_medium_centered]
This is a great question. Should we pick and choose which rules of the Bible we follow, or is it absolute?
And what of the contradictions in the Bible, doesn’t Genesis 9:3 say ‘Everything that lives and moves about will be food for you.’?
That comes down to you and your personal beliefs, and I’m not going to judge you based on your decision.
The greater lesson here is that not only does the Bible teach us how to act toward our fellow man, but it teaches us about our health and what we SHOULD be eating. And far too many of us ignore this sage advice.
[features_box_yellow width=”75%” + border=”2px”]And God said, “Behold, I have given you every plant yielding seed that is on the face of all the earth, and every tree with seed in its fruit. You shall have them for food. – Genesis 1:29[/features_box_yellow]
[headline_arial_medium_centered color=”#000000″]Here’s What We SHOULD Be Eating…[/headline_arial_medium_centered]
We know both from the Bible and study after study that we need to eat more natural, organic plants, fruits, and vegetables for better health.
Here’s the thing: eating healthy in our society today is HARD. Health food is not only expensive, but time consuming to shop for, and often difficult to prepare.
That’s why my most recent discovery is so powerful.
What if I told you that you could quickly and easily:
