Scripture commands, "Whether...ye eat, or drink, or whatsoever ye do, do all to the glory of God" (1 Corinthians 10:31). With this counsel as a cornerstone, the author offers inspired advice on an often neglected factor in religion: how to eat for optimum health. The compilers have included almost everything Ellen White wrote on such topics as vegetarianism, fasting, digestion, overeating, and the relationship of diet to spirituality.
Ellen White's writings in the field of health have stood well the test of time and the advances of science. Generations of readers have found them to be a powerful aid in obtaining that self-control that promotes clearness of mind and purity of heart.
