Part 1—Fruits

A Blessing in Fresh Fruits

464. I am so thankful to God that when Adam lost his Eden home, the Lord did not cut off the supply of fruit.—Letter 157, 1900

465. The Lord desires those living in countries where fresh fruit can be obtained during a large part of the year, to awake to the blessing they have in this fruit. The more we depend upon the fresh fruit just as it is plucked from the tree, the greater will be the blessing.—Testimonies for the Church 7:136, 1902

466. It would be well for us to do less cooking and to eat more fruit in its natural state. Let us teach the people to eat freely of the fresh grapes, apples, peaches, pears, berries, and all other kinds of fruit that can be obtained. Let these be prepared for winter use by canning, using glass, as far as possible, instead of tin.—Testimonies for the Church 7:134, 1902

[Fruit Is Excellent Food, Saves Much Cooking—546]

467. For a dyspeptic stomach, you may place upon your tables fruits of different kinds, but not too many at one meal.—Testimonies for the Church 2:373, 1870

468. Fruit we would especially recommend as a health-giving agency. But even fruit should not be eaten after a full meal of other foods.—Manuscript 43, 1908

469. Nicely prepared vegetables and fruits in their season will be beneficial, if they are of the best quality, not showing the slightest sign of decay, but are sound and unaffected by any disease or decay. More die by eating decayed fruit and decayed vegetables which ferment in the stomach and result in blood poisoning, than we have any idea of.—Letter 12, 1887
