Talk Sessions: Has our focus on health become unhealthy? Featured
There's been a growing trend toward vegetarianism and veganism, eating organic, keto, also the word flexitarian has come up in recent times too. We are so much more aware of what we eat these days but is it starting to become obsessive or is it justified and we do need to re-think our current diet?
We started by talking with Claire Turnbull, Healthy Food Guide Nutritionist.
Some feedback that came through:

29 Then God said, “I give you every seed-bearing plant on the face of the whole earth and every tree that has fruit with seed in it. They will be yours for food.

27 Do not work for food that spoils, but for food that endures to eternal life, which the Son of Man will give you. For on him God the Father has placed his seal of approval.”
