Healthy Living/Healthy Eating - Part 2 // Nourishing our Bodies

Here is part 2 of the video series! (You can watch Part 1 here: Healthy Living/Healthy Eating - Part 1 // Nourishing our Spiritual Lives)

This covers more the foundational aspects of why we are to care well for our physical bodies and ways of doing so. It is by no means comprehensive . . . I could talk for a long time on this subject and the many facets of it!

Please pardon some repetitiveness . . . I need some practice with doing videos like this. :) (And I forgot to mention grains when listing off foods for a balanced diet. Those are kind of important!)


If you all have any thoughts or questions, I would love to hear them!


(On a somewhat related note: I had my Youtube channel public so you all could easily find all my videos there, but after getting many quite inappropriate comments on the Part 1 video of this series, I switched my channel back to unlisted. So if you would ever like to see all the videos, simply click the word 'videos' in the list of topics on the right sidebar of my blog [or at the bottom of a post with a video], and it will bring up all the posts that include videos.)

  1. Lovely video, Sarah. That basket of fruits and veggies was a great visual aid.:-) Have you ever heard the tip about eating different colors to make sure you get a variety of nutrients? Red apples, yellow squash, green broccoli, etc. So neat how God made it simple to get what we needed from His food!

    What are your thoughts on today's heavy emphasis on cutting out grains, carbs, gluten etc from our diet? Seems that more and more people I know are doing this. Along with that, paleo dieters are eating much more protein than was recommended just a decade or so ago.

    On a completely unrelated note, is that your kitchen? It is gorgeous!!

    1. Thank you, Betsy! I have heard of that tip, but had forgotten. Thanks for sharing! It would have been good to have included in the video. :) Yes, it is indeed so neat how God designed it!

      In answer to your question, I would go back to the fact that God created grains, etc. for our physical consumption. So . . . include them in your diet, yet still keep it well-balanced with an abundance of fruits and vegetables. Sometimes people do find that they need to eliminate something like gluten due to an allergy, and in those cases, certainly, it is wise to cut them out.

      It is our dining room. :) We remodeled it awhile back, and I rather like it, too!

  2. Well done Sarah!! Looking forward to follow up videos :)

    As you say, a healthy, varied, unprocessed eating plan is the best!

    I'm sure you are already thinking ahead :)

    1. Thank you, Lynda! Another video in the series will be coming eventually, though it might be awhile as life is busy right now!

      Yes, it is indeed. :)

      Is your last comment in reference to the next video? If so, yes, I do already have thoughts about what to include!

  3. I do agree with you Sarah. Let's get back to eating food without additives and preservatives wherever possible.

  4. Great video! I struggled with an eating disorder for years and became extremely nutrient deficient and sick. I now know to feed my body what it needs through eating the most nutrient rich foods as possible! A lot of fruits, vegetables, whole grains and the good fats (nuts,avocados,fish,olive oil).

    1. Thank you, Sara! I am sorry to hear about the eating disorder you had as that would have been hard, yet it is great to hear that you now know how to feed your body well! Yes, yes, yes, and yes to what you listed off. :)

  5. Great video, Sarah. I lean towards ~ grow it myself. :-) Our sons are organic dairy farmers, which is better for us, the animals, and the land. Our beef herd is not given hormones or anything like that, and are grass fed. The more I've read and checked into organic, it's not always what I would call organic, so you really have to watch where you buy organic vegetables. As you said too, water is so importan, and good clean water. Because we have so many animals around us, we've all installed water purification systems. We are thinking about bees now. I do buy local raw honey, but really need to get rid of the sugar intake. Thanks for the reminder! Non GMO wheat berries for my bread is a must too. :-) Blessings, Anne♥

    1. Lovely to hear from you again, Anne! And thank you. :) Oh yes, growing it yourself is the best!

      I didn't realize that your son's dairies are organic. That's great!

      It is so true that one has to be careful even though something may be labeled 'organic'. Research is important! Thank you for all you shared. I enjoyed reading the steps that you are taking! And how exciting that you might get bees! You'll have to keep me updated if you do. :)
