Genesis 1:29 – And God said, “See, I have given you every herb that yields seed which is on the face of all the earth, and every tree whose fruit yields seed; to you, it shall be for food.
Consecration is designed to bring us closer to God, and the purity of foods eaten during this time reminds me of a modern-day return to Eden. But, although the process calls u to sacrifice: who said fasting has to be boring?
