HEALTHY EATING PART 14 (FOOD HYGIENE)

 Food hygienes are conditions and measures necessary to ensure the safety of food from production to consumption. Food can become contaminated at any point during harvesting, processing, storage, distribution, transportation and preparation.

Also, food hygiene has to do with all kind of food products, it covers all conditions needed to control food threats and ensure that people will get healthy food to eat.

Importance of Food Hygiene

Cleanliness related to food starts with the preparation of food. The raw substances used for cooking should be washed thoroughly with water before being cooked.

Inflation: Mixed outlook as food prices remain high

AGAINST the backdrop of deceleration of inflationary pressures announced by the National Bureau of Statistics, NBS, last week, further insight into price movements in the first quarter of the year has indicated a mixed result.

Financial Vanguard and other analysts’ reports indicate that the deceleration was principally a year-on-year, YoY, base effect rather than a decline in prices, especially in food and related items in the market.
The NBS report for March 2017 had indicated that inflation rate slowed further to 17.26 percent YoY in March from 17.87 percent YoY in February.
Giving a Month-on-Month, MoM, analysis of the parameters, economists at Cardinal Stone Partners Limited, a Lagos based investment house, stated: ‘‘The relatively slower pace of increase in YoY headline CPI (Consumer Price Index) primarily reflects the impact of base effects given the significant jump in the index in the corresponding period of 2016.   Click here to continue reading

OUR SPIRITUAL FOOD
“NEVER WITHOUT HELP”
I will not leave you as orphans comfortless, desolate, bereaved, forlorn, helpless]; I will come back.

In today’s article, i will be discussing on “5 Hidden Facts About Sugar Processed Food” under “Healthy Eating”.

The excessive amount of hidden sugar in processed food has quite become alarming in the Sub-Sahara region, including Nigeria.

1. SUGAR MASQUERADING FOODS:
It is difficult to know the exact amount of natural sugar versus added sugar by just looking at their label, most foods that are typically considered “healthy” can contain shocking amounts of added sugar or fructose, in form of high fructose corn syrup (HFCS) according to Dr Robert Lustig, a professor of clinical paediatrics in the Division of Endocrinology at UC San Francisco, it’s important to distinguish between Natural Food-Base Sugar Versus Added Sugar.

He notes that a small serving cup of plain yoghurt has about seven grams of sugar in the form of Lactose a natural sugar found in dairy which does not cause any major harm.     Click here to continue reading

HEALTHY EATING PART 12 (HOW TO MANAGE FOOD INTOLERANCE)

OUR SPIRITUAL FOOD
“ACKNOWLEDGE THAT YOU ARE SPECIAL”.
Again, the kingdom of heaven is like unto a merchant man,
seeking goodly pearls: Who, when he had found one pearl of great price, went and sold all that he had, and bought it (Matthew 13:45-46).

There are people who like to tell us that we’re not very special. People make such statements out of ignorance, and
a seeming show of humility.

You are peculiar. You are special to God. You’re His pearl of
inestimable value. It’s not pride to acknowledge and affirm that you are special.
Remember, God gave birth to you. James 1:18 says, “Of his
own will begat he us with the word of truth, that we should be a kind of firstfruits of his creatures.”

It’s absolutely
impossible for God to give birth to “nonentities” or “unworthy servants” that some Christians
unwittingly arrogate to themselves, because He reproduces after His own kind.

You are the crown of God’s creation, the best of all that He
made. Therefore, Be conscious and be bold of your real personality; you are royalty, a peculiar treasure, a king priest
unto God, appointed to reign and rule in the earth.

Welcome back dear readers to this wonderful segment on “Healthy Eating”, In todays’ article i will be discussing on “HOW TO MANAGE FOOD INTOLERANCE”.

As we all know, eating is a pleasant experience. However, there are some, who treat certain food as “Worse Enemy” owing to the previous experience and this might be as a result of Food Intolerance.

The question is,
WHAT IS THIS SO CALLED FOOD INTOLERANCE?
Well, to my understanding, Food Intolerance is an adverse reaction to food in the digestive system.

It can also be a situation whereby the needed enzymes are unable to break food particles in the intestine.

SOME COMMON FOOD INTOLERANCE ARE,
1. Wheat
2. Yeast
3. Dairy
4. Gluten
5. Alcohol

HOW TO MAKE PIZZA

OUR SPIRITUAL FOOD
Endure hardship as discipline; God is treating you as his
children. No discipline seems
pleasant at the time, but painful.

Later on, however, it produces a harvest of righteousness and
peace for those who have been trained by it (Hebrews 12:7-11
NIV).
The Bible says, “For the eyes of the LORD run to and fro
throughout the whole earth, to shew himself strong in the behalf of them whose heart is perfect
toward him…” (2 Chronicles
16:9).

That means He’s watching and looking for opportunities to
manifest His glory on your behalf.
He never leaves you alone. He never lets you down.

He’s moved with the feeling of our infirmities (Hebrews 4:15).

Welcome to back to our food tips/recipes segment! In today’s’ post I will teach you all ” How To Make Pizza”.

Pizza is a flatbread generally topped with tomato sauce and cheese and baked in an oven. It
is commonly topped with a selection of meats, vegetables
and condiments.

Pizza is prepared fresh, frozen, and as portion-size slices or
pieces. Methods have been developed to overcome challenges such as preventing
the sauce from combining with the dough and producing a crust that can be frozen and reheated without becoming
rigid. There are frozen pizzas with raw ingredients and self- rising crusts.

an acidic oral environment.
Brushing your teeth with baking soda helps to neutralize excess acids found in the oral cavity.

High fiber food actually helps prevent
halitosis. Avoid eating heavily
processed food that contains refined carbohydrates such as cookies, cakes, sweet and ice cream.

HEALTHY EATING PART 8 (HOW CARBOHYDRATE-RICH FOOD IS ESSENTIAL TO THE BODY)

OUR SPIRITUAL FOOD
“WALK IN LOVE”
A new commandment i give unto you, that ye love one another; as i have loved you, that ye also love one another John 13:34

Dear Readers, here is another exciting sub Post from the Topic Healthy Eating Part 8 “How Carbohydrate-Rich Food Is Essential To The Body”

Carbohydrate is seen as the culprits behind the epidemic of diabetes and obesity by many people.

One of the major misconception is that carbohydrate-rich food contain too much sugar and its harmful to the body.
The truth is that, the sugar deposited in the plant food is a natural sugar or simple sugar and not the processed sugar.
The sugar derive from plant food rich in carbohydrate is the best and its suitable for the body cell.
Besides, the supposed harm of carbohydrate-rich foods are created by man rather than what is suppose to be inherited naturally from this plant foods invariably, what many people consumed are refined carbohydrates, which is poisonous to the body cells and tissues thereby creating room for different diseases to occur.

According to World Health Organisation (WHO), about 68% of death that occurred in 2008 were attributed to killer diseases such as stroke, heart disease, cancers, type 2 diabetes and obesity for which poor diets were contributing factors but those who live in societies that eat healthy plant-based diets rarely encounter these ailments.

Dr. Frank Shallenberger, M.D also stated that “regular eating of refined carbohydrates can make the liver become insulin resistant and has trouble regulating the level of sugar in the blood system.
As a matter of fact, carbohydrate-rich foods such as fruits and vegetables with medium glycemic index should constitute 50-80% of our daily calorie intake.

REASONS WHY CARBOHYDRATE-RICH FOODS SHOULD BE TAKEN DAILY
1. FOR ENERGY: Carbohydrate-rich foods supply the cell in the body with glucose to produce energy. The brain and the heart never sleep, they need constant supply of glucose derive from carbohydrate-rich foods to function properly.
The brain alone uses about 15-20% of energy in the body while it also uses about 25-30% of inhaled oxygen.

2. FOR FIBRE: The health benefits of high fibre diet can not be over emphasize, especially for the prevention and healing of cancer, obesity, heart disease and diabetes.
Fibre also act like a cleanser, thereby sweeping metabolic wastes out of the digestive system.
A study publish in nature’s journal obesity, showed that increase in soluble fibre reduce the amount of deep belly fat resistance, fatty liver disease and type 2 diabetes.
Specifically, there is no way we can up our fibre intake without increasing the consumption of carbohydrate-rich foods, since its the only source of fibre.

3. PH BALANCE: The human body need about 20% acidic food and 80% alkaline foods to maintain a proper PH balance. It is impossoble to maintain a PH balance with low intake of carbohydrate-rich foods.
Basically, the animal products we consume contain protein and fat, while carbohydrate food plant are the source of healthy alkaline foods to ensure PH balance and proper functions of the body organs.

To be candid, we need to consume much raw foods.
Raw foods contain high percent of unrefined carbohydrate. The only plant foods that can be eaten in raw form are Fruits, some Vegetables, such as Carrot, Cucumbers, Orange, Garden Egg, e.t.c.
There is nothing as good as eating raw food, it is a guaranteed means of maintaining a sound and healthy body.
Raw food restore dead cells, it provide sufficient oxygen and repairs damage tissue in the body.

N/B: Our take home message after reading this article, should be “More Carbohydrate, More Health”.

Health experts claim it is now safe for pregnant women, children and infants to eat raw eggs, or foods containing them.

This updated advice, which is based on scientific evidence, will please many women who have previously been told they couldn’t enjoy dishes including eggs benedict and cookie dough desserts.

Past belief was eating raw or lightly cooked eggs risked causing serious illness.

Heather Hancock, chairman of the Food Standards Agency, said: “It’s good news that now even vulnerable groups can safely eat UK eggs without needing to hard-boil them, so long as they bear the British Lion mark.

Fish”.

Moroccan cuisine is influenced by Morocco’s
interactions and exchanges with
other cultures and nations over the centuries.

with a slight European and Sub-Saharan
influence.

Morocco produces a large range of
Mediterranean fruits and vegetables and
even some tropical ones. Common meats
include beef, goat, mutton and lamb,
chicken and seafood, which serve as a base
for the cuisine. Characteristic flavourings include lemon pickle, argan oil, cold-pressed, unrefined olive
oil and dried fruits. Mediterranean Cuisine in general, the staple ingredients include wheat, which is used for bread and couscous, and olive oil, the third Mediterranean staple, the grape, is eaten as a

FOODIE UPDATE (Is Beef Processing Future a Meatless One?)

There’s a new burger in town, and the folks at Impossible Foods think that it’s the future of meat.

The California-based food business has announced that its Oakland plant is now online, marking the burgeoning company’s first large scale plant operation. After it ramps up, Impossible says the factory will have the capacity to churn out a million pounds of meat per month. But it’s not just any meat – these burgers are plant-based, and the company is betting 68,000 square feet on their success.

The Impossible Burger is being touted as the first plant-based “burger” that accurately emulates the flavours, textures, and aromas of real grilled hamburger meat. But the big difference is in its sustainability: Impossible’s website says that, compared to cows, their burger uses “95% less land, 74% less water, and creates 87% fewer greenhouse gas emissions.” The company hopes to create an alternative burger that relies on fewer resources but also uses science to make it “bleed” like real meat.

MEAT SELLERS AND FORMALIN

I do not know how many of you received this message from a purportedly good Samaritan that meat sellers now use formalin to repel flies from meat. The message advised consumers to patronise butchers with flies around their meat as that is a clear sign of formalin-free meat.

According to the message on the social media, “People are using formalin, the chemical used to preserve dead bodies in preserving meat as it keeps flies away. When I asked a pharmacist, Capt. Kenneth, remember of UPDF, he said it is possible.”

Continuing, “This is a national public health issue. After my friend’s wife lost a baby through miscarriage and investigations showed the presence of formalin in her blood. When consumed, formalin goes to the liver and destroys it.”

Appealing to consumers, the author in the message stated, “Please, people of God, this is serious. When you go to buy meat, go to a butcher that has flies around. Use this as the only way to confirm that there is no formalin present. If the meat is without flies, what is keeping them away is formalin. Be informed. Share this information please and save life.”
