Taking on a new lifestyle of healthy eating doesn’t come easy, even for the most determined of individuals. At the start, the task can seem daunting, with having to purchase the foods and figuring out meal plans. Rhonda’s Culinary Creations Recipe Book offers a comprehensive kitchen manual of 400 recipes all gleaned from the culinary classes offered at Hallelujah Diet.
First developed in the early 1990s by Rev. George Malkmus, the Hallelujah Diet or HD offers the real blueprint to healthy eating for anyone wanting to live a robust and healthy life based on God’s plan. Soon thereafter, Rhonda Malkmus, co-founder of HD, built a recipe bank that incorporated the principles and practices of the diet so people could fully benefit from what the HD has to offer.
The Hallelujah Diet Meal Plan—The Inspiration Behind the Book
The Standard American Diet leaves a lot to be desired when it comes to nutrient content. While filling, foods like cheeseburgers, cakes, and junk food snacks are slowly but surely poisoning the masses. Today’s rampant rates of diabetes, cancer, heart disease, and obesity, affecting millions upon millions of people, can be traced back to the nutrient-deficient foods we eat every day.
The Hallelujah Diet is based on Genesis 1:29, which lays out the types of foods God provided for our health and well-being. Genesis 1:29 states: “And God said, Behold, I have given you every herb bearing seed, which is upon the face of all the earth, and every tree, in the which is the fruit of a tree yielding seed; to you it shall be for meat.“ Unlike the Standard American Diet, these foods contain the types of life-giving nutrients that support health and longevity.
“Living Foods” That Promote Health & Vitality
Rhonda’s Culinary Creations Recipe Book uses only foods included in the Hallelujah Diet, all of them containing living nutrients. Living foods contain enzymes, biophotons, and vitality not found in cooked foods. Living foods are critical to the body’s ability to function at its best. These materials make it possible for cells to carry out the chemical activities that support healing, tissue regeneration, and cell repair. The recipes contained in Rhonda’s book contain meal plans that provide a balance of vitamins, minerals, proteins, and starches. When eating a balanced diet of fruits, vegetables, grains, and legumes, you can expect to reap the following benefits:
- Stronger immune system
- Enhanced mood
- Increased energy
- Better concentration and focus
- Improved digestion
- Lean body mass
85% Raw Food
Recipe plans presented in Rhonda’s Culinary Creations Recipe book follow the 85 percent raw foods and 15 percent cooked foods guidelines found in the Hallelujah Diet. The raw foods portion is considerably larger for good reason. Raw, plant-based foods offer the very best prevention against some of the most common diseases of today. Eating a minimum of ten servings of fruits and vegetables every day greatly reduces your risk of developing serious medical problems.
Foods types in the raw food portion include all raw vegetables, fresh fruits, sprouted beans, and organic grains, along with a host of other living foods. The Hallelujah diet makes use of any and all garden grown vegetables, and many spices, and it even includes healthy sweets like fruit smoothies and raw fruit pies. With the 400 recipes included in Rhonda’s book, you’ll have more than enough meal ideas to carry you through the year.
15% Cooked Food
The cooked food portions of Rhonda’s Culinary Creations Recipe Book are designed to fulfill the body’s daily caloric needs and also its protein needs. Consisting mainly of cooked starches, these foods are also nutrient-dense.
By combining a healthy caloric count with needed proteins, the 15 percent cooked food portion will go a long way toward reducing the types of appetite cravings that come with eating unhealthy foods or from trying to eat 100% all raw. Foods that make up this portion include grain-based items, such as pasta, muffins, and whole-grain cereals. Homemade soups and different varieties of beans, along with vegan-based dairy and oils, round out the remainder of the menu.
Based on God’s Plan for Our Well-Being
God’s Word not only gives us instructions for our spiritual well-being but also our physical well-being. As our Creator, God embedded the body’s self-healing abilities within our DNA code. All that’s left to ensure health and long life are the foods that He prescribed for us to eat. Rhonda’s Culinary Creations Recipe Book shows you how to prepare the kinds of flavorful, healthy meals that rid the body of the toxins that cause sickness. This kind of eating makes for a long, healthy lifespan.
