The One Real Danger of Modern Food


www.unclecheffygroup.com
I once served home-made Sinigang na Bangus sa Bayabas on our dinner table. If you are an organic food dish lover like me you'd understand what kind of food this is---cooked just like how grandmas used to cook them.

All natural and nutritious.

Then my sons said, "What's that smell? Cat pee?"

Cat pee---that's how they found the aroma of sinigang sa bayabas.

The real danger of this present generation's getting so used to modern (synthetic) food is that their taste preference system (or taste bud mechanism) is being mutated into something that veers farther away from God's original design for human food consumption.

Most young people don't know what's real food from fakes (or poison).


They didn't develop a taste for real food like sinigang sa sampalok (using real tamarind fruit, not the powdered chemical in sachets), sinigang sa kamias, or pinangat na isda. What their minds and taste buds identify as food is anything processed or ordered from fast foods.

Burgers, fries, pizzas, pastas and shakes and fancy drinks that are heavy with white sugar and food colors.

Well, pizzas are good especially if they have lots of vegetables like mushrooms and bell pepper. But native Filipino dishes are lots more nutritious than these foods are.

Gradually, I talk to my kids about real organic food dishes and their natural sumptuous taste. Gradually they appreciate sinigang sa miso, ampalaya and inihaw na isda, especially small fresh water fish wrapped in banana leaves and steamed in vinegar, garlic and ginger. (Well, they still find sinigang sa bayabas smelling like cat pee).

These were the foods my grandma, dad and mom cooked us and we were healthy and fit. Very few in those days were "obese." Today, obese seems to be the order of the day, everyday. They have to go to gyms and work out hard there to get in shape. In our days, you simply had to eat 3 meals and play outdoors in order to be fit.

Harvard Study Says Chicken Skin is Healthy!

You used to take off chicken skin because doctors and nutritionists said it's bad for your heart. So, with broken hearts we did so, stripping the golden brown and juicy skin from our roasted or grilled chicken and couldn't believe we were actually throwing away all that goodness into the trash.

And we wondered why God made chicken skin so delicious just so we could throw it all away.

But a new Harvard study says chicken skin is actually good for your health---to be specific, your heart health. It says most of the fatty part of chicken skin (the most mouthwatering one) is unsaturated and healthy for the heart. And that's according to studies done by the Harvard School of Public Health, no less.

Unsaturated fat can lower your cholesterol and blood pressure, the Harvard school said, according to an article on The Daily Meal site titled "Doctor's Got It All Wrong!" So, if the study is correct (I'm waiting for another "study" to contradict this---al…

Do You Know the Right Way of Eating Fruits 2

Previously on Right Way of Eating Fruits

Another mistake people do when eating fruits is eating them long after peeling their skin. Not many people know this, but all fresh fruits are alkaline, even soir ones. I met one "nutritionist" who thought sour fruits were all purely acidic---just because they were sour.

Take kalamansi for instance. Fresh kalamansi is alkaline. Those who know herbal medicine know this. But make sure you consume it right after slicing it open. If you let it lie open like that for a long time it becomes acidic. Moreover, the Vitamin C in it quickly evaporates. You get nothing but sourness.

So those fruit juices sold in bottles in grocries and malls? You get nothing from them except water, flavor, sugar and synthetic Vitamin C perhaps, which is acidic. If you want to keep fit, an acidic tummy is the last thing you'd want.

Here are my secrets on how I get physically fit. Click here.

If you peel off a banana, make sure you eat the whole thing now. Don&#…

How Posture Affects Your Confidence Level

Try it. Make it a habit to stand erect---chest out, stomach in---and make sure you look relaxed and natural doing it. No hint of struggling. How? Well, keep practicing this posture.

And then always lift your chin and look straight ahead with relaxed, rested eyes. Even if you don't feel confident inside, that look will make people think you have it. That look and posture often earn you respect.

Now, when you see people awed at you because they think you have powerful self confidence---when in fact you don't---you begin to feel confident. It builds up like a miracle.

I tried it once. I used to stand up with stooping shoulders and often looking down at the floor. Then one time I saw how it looked in a mirror. Such a look of defeat and weakness. Then I wondered---does good posture really make a difference?

So I started practicing good posture. I studied how to stand, sit and walk erect, like a real model. I watched how models moved and imitated them. Together with my regular work…
