166 - Food and Faith
March 03, 2011 Length: 44:03
As Great Lent begins, Illumined Heart host Kevin Allen and nutrition expert Rita Madden (MPH and RD) discuss the role of food in our Orthodox spiritual life, what the Church Fathers say about food and food quantity, and practical nutritional issues related to fasting. Can we get the protein we need from a plant-based diet? Do we need supplements? Should children fast? These and many other questions - from an Orthodox patristic perspective and Rita's expertise -are the focus of this important conversation.

"I am new to this site, and I am absolutely astounded by the quality of your material, especially the beautiful Orthodox hymns and chants. What a blessing we Orthodox Christians have to be able to listen to our own broadcasts. May the Lord our God grant all of you people involved with this radio program strength and everything necessary to continue to share this great gift with all people."
