Milk and Honey Diet

The Israelites eventually entered the land of Canaan, which was a land of wheat, barley, vines, fig trees and pomegranates, a land of olive oil and honey. [Deuteronomy 8:8] Melons, grapes, diluted wine, fish, and flaxseed, were also commonly grown and consumed. They ate nutritious whole grains, not the processed grains eaten today. The recipe for “Ezekiel bread” of the Old Testament consisted of wheat, barley, beans, lentils, millet and spelt (a form of hard-grained wheat). [Ezekiel 4:9]
