“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 enunchs that he might not defile himself” (Dan. 1:8, NKJV).
The rewards of the Bible-based diet in Daniel’s story resonated with me when I became a Seventh-day Adventist. My Christian journey up to that point had been a circuitous one. However, each path led me to be more reconciled to the Scriptures. Daniel’s example continues to influence the dietary improvements I make for better health, wisdom and discernment.
