Many Latter-day Saints (Mormons) have an interest in food and nutrition, because the Lord, on February 27, 1833, revealed principles of good health to Joseph Smith. These principles are described in Section 89 of the Doctrine and Covenants.
The Lord counseled Latter-day Saints to avoid wine and strong drinks, tobacco, and hot drinks (defined by church leaders as tea and coffee). In addition, the Saints are to use all wholesome herbs and fruits in their seasons, with prudence and thanksgiving. Meat should be eaten sparingly, primarily in times of famine and cold weather. All grain, especially wheat, is food.
The Saints living these principles “shall receive health in their navel and marrow to their bones; And shall find wisdom and great treasures of knowledge, even hidden treasures; And shall run and not be weary, and shall walk and not faint. And I, the Lord, give unto them a promise, that the destroying angel shall pass by them, as the children of Israel, and not slay them.”
Many Latter-day Saints are fond of cooking with wheat.
