ELIXIR OF LIFE

Continuing on our body-conscious bundle, today’s Prayer to Passage will be from the book ‘Cook Right for Your Type’ by Dr. Peter J. D’Adamo. This book is a layout of four thirty-day meal plans for four blood types.

I pray, “Dear God, Please continue Your Communication as a vessel toward healthy living. Nutrients are available to us in so many forms. As the body is needed to carry the mind and spirit, grant me words of wisdom. Thank you for my health.”

Concentrating on the closed book following my prayer, I opened the book to the following passage:

Page 347:

“DATE-PRUNE SMOOTHIE
HIGHLY BENEFICIAL: A
NEUTRAL: O, B, AB
AVOID: [No blood type needs to avoid]
Rich, delicious, and incredibly good for you. If it’s too rich, you can always blend in a few ice cubes to thin its consistency, while making it ice cold.
1 cup soy milk
4 pitted prunes
2 to 3 pitted dates
1 cup prune juice
Combine all ingredients in a blender and blend until smooth. Enjoy ice cold. Serves 2.”

I can’t help but giggle just a little bit about the fact that my prayer was a request for “words of wisdom” and God sent me prune juice. Well, prune juice does have a bit of a stigma for being an elixir more commonly sipped to keep one waddling toward the water closet. And elders, who more often partake, are often wiser than the average bear cub. So, I’m going to conclude that prune juice is the breakfast of sage masters. And if you didn’t catch it, this is an example of God’s sense of humor. Omni-hilarious.

OK, so… prune juice. I can get on board with that. A good digestif. Or good at any time during the day or meal. There seems to be a theme here. Yesterday’s healthy food was parsley—a spritely sprig typically to follow a meal. And today, prune juice—a liquid extract that tends to have a similar follow through. God’s good food is available for breakfast, lunch, or dinner; appetizer, main course, or dessert. Here’s to prune juice. Cheers!
