There are countless diet books available to us, and more are added every day. Edgar Cayce had much to say about healthy eating. In fact, it was usually the foundation for curing ills in his many readings. Consider some of Cayce's readings on food and health, and then think about some of the concepts you may have heard in "modern" diets.
"Keep a tendency toward alkalinity in the diet. This does not mean there should never be any acid-forming foods in the diet--for over-alkilinity is much more harmful than a little tendency toward acidity occasionally. But remember that there are tendencies in this system toward cold and congestion... and cold cannot, does not exist in alkalines." 808-3
"In all bodies, the less activities there are in the physical exercise or manual activity, the greater should be the alkaline-reacting foods taken. Energies or activities may burn acids; but those who lead the sedentary life or the non-active life can't go on sweets or too much starches." 798-1
"There might be one diet given today and then next week you would be given another..." 681-2
"Oranges, lemons, limes, grapefruit are well and are alkaline in their reaction--unless starches, as especially from cereals, are taken at the same meal..." 1334-2
"Coffee is a food if it is taken without cream or sugar..." 816-3
"Q. Are soft drinks alright for this body? A. No. For very few bodies." 2157-2
"Do have plenty vegetables above the ground; at least three of these to one below the ground..." 2602-1
"Beware of all fried foods. No fried potatoes, fried meats, fried steaks, fried fish, or anything of that nature." 926-1
"Do not eat foods prepared in aluminum at all..." 2423-1
"Those who would eat two to three almonds each day need never fear cancer. Those who would take a peanut oil rub each week need never fear arthritis." [masked]
And much, much more! Let's meetup and discuss our thoughts on food!
