I know most folks don't think about nutrition for folks who live outdoors full time. But after reading your account on your own bouts with food problems, and knowing that with my own health problems, the types of food I eat can make all the difference in the world...for instance, the one ounce of canned salmon and a milkshake of peanut butter, strawberries, and chocolate milk I had for dinner has sent my digestive system into a spin today!

And I have this belief that if things aren't working right, maybe it is because we arent doing them according to the Master Engineer's design. Feeding homeless people the things we think of feeding them, even if it is a three-course gourmet meal, may do worse things for their body than they imagine.

I don't know what the answers are yet, but it seems to me from the descriptions in Leviticus and other prescriptions for caring for the poor in the Bible, that whatever foods can be grown should be handed to them outright (I mean, without processing). The only exception to that might be grains. I've tried eating roasted grain. That seems best, unless you don't have teeth. The problem with leaven, is that it causes infections in some people. Maybe cereal?

Thanks, and God Bless!
