As many of us will sit down over the next few weeks and eat food luxury food that we don’t normally eat there are evacuees from Alepo that will need feeding, surely we can go without something;new clothes, shoes,make up , phone cover, tablet, etc to give something extra to the many charities that are collecting right now to support the needy in Syria?
The food we eat has a massive impact on how we think, we are ignorant to think otherwise, behavioral problems in children are connected to diet, children with autism are given nutritional therapy apart of their treatment. Wholefood and whole grains are full of natural vitamins and minerals that are vital for mental health.
Food is used to manipulate and control communities, farmers of foods that are bad for us are substidized by global governments because illnesses need cures and in communties with no spiritual etieqqueete regarding treatment for dis-ease, then pharmacuetical cures and operation are the quick solutions to problems that could easily be avoided like financially substidizing fruit and vegetables farmers for a change……for a change…for a change
Just watching some BBC TV 2 “Rip Off Britain” food programme, according to some UK university who tested concentrated orange juice(which is a commodity on the stock exchange , it can be stored unlike fresh) AND freshly squeezed orange juice, to see vitamin C and anti-oxidant content.Their tests showed little difference.We need to remember that many science facilitates of some universities are funded by pharmaceutical and processed food industries, it is common knowledge int eh field of nutrition, quoted by Dr Colin T Campbell, Professor Emirus at Cornel university in USA, that too many government nutritionist are on the pay roll of these companies.
There is no way that orange juice that is concentrated, the process involves boiling the orange juice for a long period of time to evaporate the water, there is no way that this orange juice has a similar genuine vitamin C content as fresh because vitamin C is HEAT SENSITIVE VITAMIN.
Heat and storage methods can degrade the amount of vitamin C in the juice. Pasteurization, for example, uses high heat to kill microbes, but a great deal of vitamin C can be lost through this process. Vitamin C is also lost over time, so the fresher the orange, the more vitamin C it tends to have.
Commercial producers of concentrated orange juice add artificial vitamin C in the form of ascorbic acid to bump up with nutritional data.
Vitamin C is also called ascorbic acid, and food manufacturers have found an easy way of adding ascorbic acid to foods such as juices to up the quota of vitamin C listed on the ingredient label.
It is better to eat a whole orange instead of orange juice, since whole foods have higher nutritional content than processed. For example, in addition to 98 mg of vitamin C, one large orange supplies 4.4 g fiber, 74 mg of calcium and 131 mcg of beta-carotene — nutrients that are all lost in the juicing process.
Vitamin loss can be induced by a number of factors. Obviously, losses of vitamins depend on cooking time, temperature, and cooking method. Some vitamins are quite heat-stable, whereas others are heat-labile. From textbooks in nutrition, such as Kreutleret al. , many other factors than heat can destroy (some) vitamins, such as: solubility in water, exposure to air (oxidation), exposure to light (UVs), heat, acid and alkaline solutions, storage losses, etc. Here is a tabular summary:

This is a white powder, its a processed flavor enhancer that can be found in particularly Oriental food, restaurant food, any food to make it more “moorish” meaning you want to eat more of it because the MSG can be additive.
It’s in most processed and restaurant foods .its in salad dressing, crisps, crackers, hot dog sausages, processed meats, dips, frozen meals, soups and more.
In 1959, the U.S. Food and Drug Administration labeled MSG as “Generally Recognized as Safe” (GRAS),10 years later a condition known as “Chinese Restaurant Syndrome” entered the medical literature, describing the numerous side effects, from numbness to heart palpitations, that people experienced after eating MSG.
It has been linked to various health issues, such as: brain damage, liver inflammation, learning disabilities, obesity, headaches, nausea, asthma, change in heart rate and various other diseases.
The health problems of MSG is another good reason to stop eating out and learn to cook, because that way you know whats going in your food. To any restaurateur, if your food is good enough people will come back because of the food not because of the addictive poisons drugs you are adding in that are not necessary 🙂
Karimah Bint Dawoud, Muslim Chaplain, Qualified Clinical Nutritionist. Let’s leave behind the Lego Land mentality and take things to a more holistic level in all things, not just food, but it’s food my specialty, so its food I’ll speak with. I notice my metaphors normally are with food or cuisine cooking. Anyways as part of my Sha’aban, the month before Ramadhan preparation and getting things sorted mentality, physically and spiritually, I am having a bit of a paradigm shift and would encourage you to do the same. We have been indoctrinated to only accept fruit and vegetables that are a standard size, standard colour and standard smell .Anything else is less than or abnormal, we have been brain washed to become food fascist. Its really sad this supermarket form of food discrimination, I know of a farmer who has machine that weighs and measure the size of cucumbers and anything that doesn’t measure up is rejected and ends up in the market . Now with my rational head on I know that part of it is to do with storage and odd sizes would make things more difficult to store, however when it gets to the point where scientist are in labs messing round with genetics of my tomatoes, to make sure they all come out the same size, this is the point where things need to stop! So I shop in the market, in the everyday, on the corner market and the farmers market and occasionally for cat litter in the supermarket, for those things that I can’t get for cash on the street. I would just like to show you what I bought today in West London, UK, for those complainers that say “eating healthy is expensive”. Let’s go!
£1 – 8 lemons £1- 2 mangoes , spots on skin £1- 2 melons skin uneven £1-1 punnet of lovely tasty tiny tiny strawberries, good things like strawberries , come in small packages. £1-12 bananas with brown spots are better for you that pale yellow ones. £1-4 avocados that have different coloured skin and may have fibres inside when you cut them but these fibres are good for you. I would have bought more but I didn’t have enough money on me, alhmdulilah.This is enough to make loads of breakfast smoothies for all the family for days. All school children have a mid morning break before lunch break .You can give them something solid to eat then like sandwich, they do not have to eat big food at breakfast and a rich smooth banana based smoothies is a quick nutritious way to start the day for all the family. There are lots of recipes on our pages, so go on mum, give it ago
FOODIE FUSS…There’s a lot of fuss being made right now over Korean food, touting it as “the perfect food diet health plate.”
The best thing about Korean food, if the truth be told, is kimchi, a fermented vegetable pickle, full of natural acidophilus good bacteria for stomach. The Bi Bim Bap Recipe is a Korean melange in a bowl, where you get to choose from a healthy starch like rice, some protein, vegetables and a fermented pickle, however looking at some people’s version of Bi Bim Bap , the combo is far from healthy.
½ pound in weight =0.225 kilograms
1 pound in weight = 0.5 kilo approximately
This is what The Perfect Health Diet claims to be the right amount of animal protein we should eat a day
At the end of the day its up to you , however im guided by the tradtions of our beloved prophet muhamd, salah la lahi wa salem, who didn’t eat meat every day or venr every wek some tiems not evern for month.
Narrated Urwa: Aisha said to me, “O my nephew! We used to see the crescent, and then the crescent and then the crescent in this way we saw three crescents in two months and no fire (for cooking) used to be made in the houses of Allah’s Apostle. I said, “O my aunt! Then what use to sustain you?” ‘Aisha said, “The two black things: dates and water, our neighbors from Ansar had some Manarh and they used to present Allah’s Apostle some of their milk and he used to make us drink.” ( BUKHARI Book #47, Hadith #741)
The over consumption of meat leads to cancer , heart disease, gout and many other fatal diseases.
