As you can see in the above list of healthy foods… it’s not very difficult to find a large variety of foods for a healthy diet from the pages of God’s Word! God clearly knew what he was doing when he created these nutritious foods… The Bible tells us that God made provision for all the foods in creation from the very beginning:

Genesis 1:29-30 (Amplified version below)
And God said, See, I have given you every plant yielding seed that is on the face of all the land and every tree with seed in its fruit; you shall have them for food.
And to all the animals on the earth and to every bird of the air and to everything that creeps on the ground—to everything in which there is the breath of life—I have given every green plant for food. And it was so.
