"Everything is permissible," but not everything is helpful. "Everything is permissible,"  but not everything builds up.                 1 Corinthians 10:23 (HCS)

This is one of my favorite Bible verses.  I consider it often when it comes to food.  One of the things I really like about Weight Watchers is that I really can eat anything I want to eat, as long as I own up to how many points it is.  But lately I've been thinking about the quality of what I actually choose to put in my mouth.

I do have the choice to eat pizza, doughnuts, name it.  And, I've been eating "lighter" versions of these things in the past several weeks.  But something strange is happening.  I'm starting to be particular about eating food that will help me, food that will build up my body in a healthy way.  I think it started when we went on that road trip, and I wasn't even tempted to eat a Danish pastry.  Instead of seeing the pastries as "forbidden fruit" which makes them even more desirable, I saw them as something I could have if I wanted, but I just didn't want any!

This might be recordable as a miracle.  I choose health!  Freedom is cool.
