9 Tips for Eating Christianly

For the last 10 months I’ve been writing a book about Christian approaches to consuming culture, and one of the things I discuss in the book is food. How can Christians be better consumers of food? It’s a topic pertinent to anyone of faith (we all eat), but maybe not one that is discussed as much as it should be (though a number of great books have been exploring it of late–such as this, this, and this.)

Theology of Food, or Why Eating is Good for our Souls

I have been reading through the book Distracted by Maggie Jackson.  In it, she talks a lot about our culture and what has caused us to not be focused.  Looking at media, busyness, etc. and exposing some of the perils in how we currently live.  It is a fascinating book and very thought provoking.  

In this book, one of the things that has struck me as I read the last couple of chapters is how the way we eat both mirrors our lives and influences our lives.  She quotes a recent study at UCLA that states that only 17% of families sit down regularly for meals.  17%.  That is a very small number.

She also talks about the way foods are now prepared and “designed”.  The makers of food have changed their approach to food.  Rather than fresh food, that can be messy and must be eaten with a fork while sitting at a table, food makers/preparers are opting to do away with the fork in favor of food that can be eaten with the hands, but that is not messy enough to get on our clothes.
