My son is working out and paying attention to his diet. One day he showed me a salad he was eating for lunch. He said it was all protein: chicken, bacon, cheese, spinach…spinach?
He said, “Sure, you know like Popeye, the sailor man!”
When you want to build your strength, you eat meat!
Hebrews 5:14, “But solid food is for full grown men, for those whose senses and mental faculties are trained by practice to discriminate and distinguish between what is morally good and noble and what is evil and contrary either to divine or human law.”
“The solid meat, or food, is not absolutely necessary for preserving life, but is so for acquiring greater strength…Even strong men partake of milk, but do not make milk their chief, much less their sole, diet.” Critical and Explanatory Commentary, Vol. II
