Posts in category Eating From God’s Garden
Welcome to The Café! A place focused on the amazing and delicious foods provided by God from the garden.
God gives us plenty of bright, abundant, and colorful food from the garden that contain protective properties. Scientists are learning more each day about antioxidants and phytochemicals in the fruits and vegetables we eat. We just have to eat them, in order to benefit from these protective properties!
For this reason, I love to insert links to what others research about the healing properties of food. The recipes in The Café contain these lovely, beneficial fruits and vegetables. I hope you enjoy playing with recipes as much as I do and clicking on the links to see what properties each premier item contains.
God created the food in the garden and declared it “Good” (See Genesis Chapter 1). Let the goodness of His word and bounty from the garden fill you today with a sense of strength and determination.
So, pull up a chair, a warm cup of tea and join me in The Café to enjoy God’s word as you read through the recipes provided! God Bless!
