But Daniel purposed in his heart that he would not defile himself with the portion of the king’s delicacies, nor with the wine which he drank; therefore he requested of the chief of the eunuchs that he might not defile himself – Daniel 1:8, NKJV.
Daniel and his three friends chose to eat vegetables and drink water for ten days. At the end of those ten days, they looked much better and much healthier than the young men who ate the king’s delicacies and drank wine. How come?
Well, it’s a no-brainer. A diet consisting of vegetables and water is far more beneficial than a diet which includes wine and meat. Vegetables provide fiber, reduce the risk of disease, are rich in vitamins and minerals and are low in calories. There are so many other benefits. We are always encouraged to drink eight glasses of water a day. Water flushes out the toxins in your system and it does wonders to your skin. It also boosts your immune system; promotes weight loss. You feel more energized and less fatigued.
Start treating your body right. Remember it’s the temple of the Holy Spirit. Keep it happy and healthy by
consuming more vegetables and drinking more water. And remember an apple a day keeps the doctor away. Have more fruit.
