Juicing for Jesus

JesusrawfoodThe history between diet and spirituality is nothing new, so it's no wonder the rawfood movement is building a strong following amongst Christians.

Has anyone reading this blog entered the world of rawfood through religious study? How do you feel about the connection between diet and spirituality?

Juicing For Jesus (Gonzaga Bulletin): Matthew Yarnell of Lilac Juice & Smoothie Co. shows that being healthy can be a spiritual experience.

"We wanted to be able to offer healthy alternatives to the standard, American diet that is so prevalent," Yarnell said. He got the idea from a lay-ministry program at Whitworth which had asked him to do a nutritional program in a church context - thus, Yarnell started Healthy Course Ministries, which places emphasis on raw foods and juicing. As for the store itself, it was just a natural development from that.

Another wedge into something that should be private. Religion is responsible for more deaths, heartache, arguments, broken friendships and on and on...

Can't you zealots wake up to the fact that it's better to be an example and let your actions speak volumes than it is to get in people's faces with your preaching and evangelism???

Unreal. Enough to get me to tune out and drop out.

Well said Nick. Are you into raw-food and have you ever experienced people pitch the diet through spirituality?

I did once at a Paul Nissan lecture. I think for the most part people were turned off. Nothing against his ideas or beliefs. but they weren't there to hear about religion. They were there to hear about raw-food. So a few left and others stayed with a bad taste in their mouth.

What I have also experienced though, is many people who open their "conservative" beliefs when they change their diet around. There is something about food and being connected to the planet through food that makes people more tolerable and less ethnocentric. If spirituality, which is different than religion, can be a vehicle for that, I think it is worth it. If not, then not.

Hey Nick, one more question:

Am I missing something? Because I don't get this part of your comment? Are you talking about this blog or the article?

"Can't you zealots wake up to the fact that it's better to be an example and let your actions speak volumes than it is to get in people's faces with your preaching and evangelism???"
