Week 4, Day 5
"Fasting" from: Unsustainable Food Products | Some strategies: try a vegetarian diet, eat less meat, buy & eat locally grown food

Remember Zella from yesterday's video? In today's devotion video, she explains why she's not a vegetarian, how our industrialized food system has made producing and consuming meat terrible for the environment and animals, and why it doesn't have to be that way.

Zella also sent over some delicious-looking vegetarian recipes to share with you. Maybe there is still time to make one this weekend?

Daniel 1: 11-16 | Daniel then said to the guard whom the chief official had appointed over Daniel, Hananiah, Mishael and Azariah, “Please test your servants for ten days: Give us nothing but vegetables to eat and water to drink. Then compare our appearance with that of the young men who eat the royal food, and treat your servants in accordance with what you see.” So he agreed to this and tested them for ten days. At the end of the ten days they looked healthier and better nourished than any of the young men who ate the royal food. So the guard took away their choice food and the wine they were to drink and gave them vegetables instead.
