I eat to stay healthy and have enough energy to fulfill my life.
So, I choose healthy food i.e. fresh and as natural as possible.
I respect the environment and care for the health of the Earth which produces my food.
I choose locally sourced food, with simple packaging and whose production methods respect Eco-systems and livestock (no GMOs, chemical fertilizers, pesticides antibiotics or growth hormones)
I respect my brothers and sisters, here and throughout the whole world who work in the agri-food system and I am concerned for their living conditions, their welfare and their health.
So, I preferably select certified Fairtrade products and I avoid food produced by multinational firms who behave unfairly towards their employees, their subcontractors and the countries where they are established.
When I eat, I commune with God, the creator who is present in all that exists (Earth, Sun, human beings and all other living and inanimate beings).
So, I give thanks to God for all the gifts He has made available to me. I ask forgiveness for the "sins of the world" and I commit to making the necessary life choices to help heal the world of its sins.

God our Creator is the "Most High, all-powerful, good Lord" and all creation reflects His majesty and goodness.
