At meal time cast off care and anxious thought; do not feel worried, but eat slowly and with cheerfulness, with your heart filled with gratitude to God for all His blessings.

Food should not be eaten very hot or very cold

Regularity in eating is of vital importance. There should be a specified time for each meal. At this time, let everyone eat what system requires, and then take nothing more until the next meal. There are many who eat when the system needs no food, at irregular intervals, and between meals, because they have not sufficient strength of will to resist inclination.
Food should not be eaten very hot or very cold. If food is cold, the vital force of the stomach is drawn upon in order to warm it before digestion can take place. Cold drinks are injurious for the same reason; while the free use of hot drinks is debilitating. In fact, the more liquid there is taken with the meals, the more difficult it is for the food digest; for the liquid must be absorbed before digestion can begin. Do not eat largely of salt, avoid the use of pickles and spiced foods, eat an abundance of fruit, and the irritation that calls for so much drink at meal time largely disappear.
Food should be eaten slowly, and should be thoroughly masticated. This is necessary, in order that the saliva may be properly mixed with the food, and the digestive fluids be called into action.
Another serious evil is eating improper times, as after violent or excessive exercise, when one is a strong draft upon the nervous energies; and when the mind or body is heavily taxed just before or just after eating, digestion is hindered. When one is excited, anxious, or worried, it is better not to eat until rest or relief is found.
The stomach is closely related to the brain; and when the stomach is diseased, the nerve power is called from the brain to the aid of the weakened digestive organs. When these demands are too frequent, the brain becomes congested. When the brain is constantly taxed, and there is a lack of physical exercise, even plain food should be eaten sparingly. At meal time cast off care and anxious thought; do not feel worried, but eat slowly and with cheerfulness, with your heart filled with gratitude to God for all His blessings.
