What to do so that your sustenance arrives with blessing?
The main thing is to recognize that everything, absolutely everything, especially sustenance comes from the blessing of the Blessed Creator, and one of the ways that it reaches us more easily and with more blessing is "the Gratitude "So that is why we recite the blessings corresponding to each food before eating it for example:
The blessing of the bread, the blessing of the food of the earth, the tree, etc .. We even have the blessing of the water.
It is also very important to bless and thank for the food, ( Birkat Hamazon) once we are satisfied, as it is written:
"When you eat and are satisfied, you will bless the Creator your Lord in the good land that he has given you"
And even if the food is minimal, one should bless the Creator with a satisfied heart. Then the blessing will be sent to us, even to our body and this will give us satiety.
For a broken heart alludes to hunger and poverty, while a satisfied heart produces abundance and blessings.
How important is gratitude for the food that the Creator gives us, that is why the Torah commands us this great precept.
Now you can understand what is often asked: what did he say when he took the glass of water? Or when he ate a simple peanut or a small candy? P>
We bless for every food, no matter how small or simple it may be!
If you want to learn some of the basic blessings, today we will give you these:
All foods that do not fall within the specific groups above receive the "sheakol" blessing. This includes animal products: meat, poultry, fish, and eggs; water and all other beverages (except wine) and soups; and varied foods such as mushrooms, candies, etc.
The blessing:-Blessed are You Lord our Gd, King of the universe, by Whose word everything was called to be-
In Hebrew we say:
"Baruch ata A-do-nai, Elo-hei-nu Melech HaOlam sheakol nihia bidbaro"
Fruits receive the "haetz" blessing. According to Jewish law, fruit is defined as something that grows from an evergreen tree that does not renew its trunk and does not grow very close to the ground. Therefore, apples, grapes, nuts (except peanuts) and figs are fruits, but strawberries, watermelon and bananas are not:
-Blessed are You Lord our Gd, King of the universe, Who created the fruit of the tree-
"Baruj ata A-do-nai, Elo-hei-nu Melech HaOlam bore pri haetz"
