I'll only make slight edits. I suggest,
{16:114} So, eat of what God has provided for you [which is] lawful and good. And be grateful for the favor of God, if it is Him that you worship.

Quote:
{16:115} He has only forbidden to you dead animals, blood, the flesh of swine, and that which has been dedicated to other than God. But whoever is forced [by necessity], neither desiring [it] nor transgressing [its limit] - then indeed, God is Forgiving and Merciful.

I think that Dr. Ghali is the only one who captured the meaning of أُهِلّ. I suggest,
{16:115} Verily, He has only forbidden to you dead meat, blood, the flesh of swine, and what has been acclaimed to other than God. But whoever is necessitated, not craving nor transgressing - then verily, God is much Forgiving [and] Merciful.
