Testimony Studies on Diet and Foods


Chapter 35—Pickles

Fundamentals of Christian Education, 150-151

I was seated once at the table with several children under twelve years of age. Meat was plentifully served, and then a delicate, nervous girl called for pickles. A bottle of chow-chow, fiery with mustard and pungent with spices, was handed her, from which she helped herself freely. The child was proverbial for her nervousness and irritability of temper, and these fiery condiments were well calculated to produce such a condition. TSDF 128.1

Testimonies for the Church 2:368

The mince pies and the pickles, which should never find a place in any human stomach, will give a miserable quality of blood. TSDF 128.2

Testimonies for the Church 2:383

The blood-making organs can not convert spices, mince pies, pickles, and diseased flesh-meats into good blood. TSDF 128.3

The Ministry of Healing, 305

Do not eat largely of salt, avoid the use of pickles and spiced foods, eat an abundance of fruit, and the irritation that calls for so much drink at meal time will largely disappear. TSDF 128.4

The Ministry of Healing, 325

In this fast age, the less exciting the food, the better. Condiments are injurious in their nature. Mustard, pepper, spices, pickles, and other things of a like character irritate the stomach and make the blood feverish and impure. TSDF 128.5
