Save The Nutritive value of your food
 "The greatest damage to nutritive elements is caused by boiling. Most minerals useful to the human body are soluble in water, boiling water thus removes them. The longer the boiling, and the more water used, the worse the results. The same is largely true of vitamins; these chemicals are destroyed by heat. 
   Do not chop, crush, or peel fresh vegetables or fruits before you are actually ready to serve or to cook them; oxygen destroys some nutritive elements. Frozen foods should be put on to cook while yet frozen. If used raw, they should be eaten immediately after thawing.
   Leafy vegetables should be washed thoroughly in salt water before chopping, so as to wash away insects and to prevent loss of food value through bleeding. The fresher the produce, the richer in food value.
   Whenever possible, cook fruits and vegetables with the skins on. If you must peel them do it after cooking. Never throw away the water in which vegetables or their skins are cooked. Make use of it in gravies, soups, or stews. Ever remember that when you throw away food value, you throw away your health and money, too. Thus, though your body becomes weaker, your yoke of making a living becomes heavier.  Entering Wedge p.79


Vital Force Deleted by Cold Food
 
"Food should not be eaten very hot or very cold.   It food is cold, the vital force is the stomach is drawn up in order to warn it before digestion can take place.   Cold drinks are injurious for the same reason; while the free use of hot drinks is debilitating." Counsels on Diet and Foods, 
Ellen G. White, p. 106

BETTER LINE UP WITH ALL THE LAWS OF GOD
Everything in God's creation is either right or left, east or west, north or south, positive or negative. Some foods are acids, others are alkaline. And hence, because the one is practically worthless without the other, it is necessary that the health-seeker avail himself of both. The correct proportions of which the diet should consist, may be judged from the fact that the greater percentage of garden produce is alkalinizing. It is also enlightening to observe that the foods which should make up 80% of the diet are predominantly alkalinizing, whereas the foods which should make up 20% of the diet are predominantly acid-forming. The truth, then, is obvious: Alkalinizing foods should be used more freely than the acid-forming. This same principle governs the needed quantity of all minerals. For instance, in comparison with gold, steel is very cheap and plentiful, but what a predicament the world would be in if steel were as high-priced and as scarce as gold!  Entering Wedge

Food Combining
Vegetables and fruit should not be eaten at the same meal.  At one meal use bread and fruit, at the next bread and vegetables.   Thus we may have all the variety that we need to desire.....E. G. White ST, Sept. 30, 1897 par 6 




Fruits, Proteins, Starches
Fruits undergo no digestion in the stomach and are held up if eaten with foods that require digestion in the stomach.
Protein Foods digest in an acid medium.   It is a fact of physiology that proteins require an acid medium for their digestion in the stomach.   When proteins are eaten, acid is secreted to enable the enzyme pepsin, to begin the work of protein digestion.   It is not possible for both starch digestion and protein digestion to both go on at the same time in the stomach.  
Eat Starch foods at separate meals from acid foods, or foods requiring acid for their digestion.   This means do no eat cereals, bread, grains, potatoes, parsnips, squash, beans, or other starch foods, with eggs, cheese, nuts, or other protein foods.
