    Study the circumstances which might call for discarding eggs and milk and note carefully Ellen White’s recognition for the importance of a nutritious, appetizing dietary program embodying the moderate use of dairy products. Observe also the need of an informed approach which will preclude premature and extreme restrictions as presented in her address to the General Conference of 1909:MH-SG 32.5

    “Food should be prepared in such a way that it will be appetizing as well as nourishing. It should not be robbed of that which the system needs. I use some salt, and always have, because salt, instead of being deleterious, is actually essential for the blood. Vegetables should be made palatable with a little milk or cream, or something equivalent.MH-SG 32.6

    “While warnings have been given regarding the dangers of disease through butter, and the evil of the free use of eggs by small children, yet we should not consider it a violation of principle to use eggs from hens that are well cared for and suitably fed. Eggs contain properties that are remedial agencies in counteracting certain poisons.MH-SG 32.7

    “Some, in abstaining from milk, eggs, and butter, have failed to supply the system with proper nourishment, and as a consequence have become weak and unable to work. Thus health reform is brought into disrepute. . . .MH-SG 32.8

    “The time will come when we may have to discard some of the articles of diet we now use, such as milk and cream and eggs; but it is not necessary to bring upon ourselves perplexity by premature and extreme restrictions. Wait until the circumstances demand it and the Lord prepares the way for it.”—Testimonies, Vol. 9, p. 162.MH-SG 32.9
