What is biblical eating?

Hope Egan’s perspective is derived from the Three Principles outlined in Dr. Rex Russell’s 1996 landmark book, What the Bible Says about Healthy Living:

1.  Eat only the foods that God has given us.
2.  Eat those foods as close as possible to God’s design.
3.  Don’t let any food or drink become an idol.

Dr. Russell’s groundbreaking book has impacted thousands of lives. Its simplicity, biblical and scientific support and wide range of topics covered make it the most sound perspective on this topic, and the most often cited work in the area of biblical nutrition.

That said, there are other interesting perspectives that also contain biblical and scientific support. Learn about these on our Resources page.

Best-selling author, Hope Egan has written a variety of books, including Holy Cow! Does God Care about What We Eat?  and the What the Bible Says about Healthy Living Cookbook:  Simple and Tasty Recipes Featuring God's Ingredients.
