I could hear lots of hustle and bustle when this blog is read that too in a Food Blog community. What will happen suddenly all our micro wave ovens are not used for reheating? What will happen if we do not store cooked food in refrigerators for later use? What makes the difference if we finish the food we cook on the same day?
I am daring to write this blog after a long time since I entered into the food blogging community. I adore everybody here who have a great passion towards food that too good and healthy food. We all are calorie conscious and keen on cooking and eating healthy food. We all rely upon fresh ingredients. Since I live in India, for cooking Indian food, I have the luxury of getting all the ingredients fresh. But how about my friends live all around the world? Getting fresh ingredients is not possible always. That’s why we go for frozen and canned ingredients. That is unavoidable. But storing food in refrigerators and Reheating? This if thought carefully can be avoided as much as possible.
There is a quote in Siddha Medicine concept. “Mudhal naal samaitha kari amudheninum unnarka” meaning the food you cook the day before even is amirtham (a heavenly nectar which once taken can give you deathless long life according to Hindu mythology) do not eat it the next day. Traditionally there is something which we all adore about – the values of the concepts formed by our ancestors. They have done so many experiments and had come out with these kinds of concepts for a healthy long life.
Why not give a try to not store cooked food for the next day atleast for a week? My friends, I know many of us are working women and we hardly get time to cook everyday. But we all are the key persons for our families’ health if we have the determination we can really do it. Give it a try and in a month’s time you will definitely find the difference. The difference in our health, in our attitude (Yes! Food makes our attitude) and in our life. Me and my mother were practicing this all our life and had never stored cooked food in refrigerator. Cook for the day even it’s a simple meal cook and eat it fresh. I know how difficult it is but once it becomes a habit then its all easy! I welcome your comments and thoughts on this.
