Long-time listeners of this show know the importance I see in the intersection of food, health, and faith. The fact of the matter is a lot of people of faith struggle with food choices and stress. I hope today’s conversation will inspire you to get to a place where stress is no longer causing health issues by relying on God’s guidance.

About Bob Gassman, RDN

Bob Gassman is a Registered Dietitian/Nutritionist, minister, and author. He integrates his diverse background with a passion to connect people directly to God. Bob also is the Founder and President of The God Place, Inc., a non-profit ministry. Bob and his wife Kim have been married for more than 40 years and live in Tucson, Arizona.

The Link Between Nutrition and Faith

In this episode, Bob and I discuss how nutrition and spirituality go hand in hand when approaching how we recover from stress. When people focus exclusively on their diet, they leave out an important element. 

Faith provides a source of guidance outside of ourselves. With it, we can make progress without needing to have all the answers. We just need to remain confident that God will guide us to where we need to be on our journeys to health and wellbeing. So when you feel stress, Bob wants you to see it as a signal to look for answers with God.

 

Using God’s Foods to Build Resistance to Stress

Bob explains how using whole foods, that were designed by God to fuel the body, to make it more resistant to stress. Understanding how this food is God’s gift gives us an appreciation for just how involved in our lives He is. Bob has seen how acknowledging this will better allow us to recognize the connection between faith and health.

We agree that, overall, the best steps to take involve self-reflection. If people can examine their lives with God’s guidance and without shame, they can start making healthy and spiritually informed choices. When this is done without guilt and negativity, it becomes very empowering.
