In today’s world of unsafe environment, contamination and threat of pandemic striking the masses, it is perhaps prudent to watch what we put in our mouths.
To avoid getting sick from food we eat here are some basic rules on hygiene that should be adhered to in order to be safe from diseases like e-coli and sars.
While being cautious about proper handling of meat and fowl, preparation of any type of produce calls for special attention.
It is a well known fact that to stay healthy we should consume at least five recommended fruit and veggies a day. So these basic rules should apply:
Wash everything, even if it is packaged to get rid of dirt and pesticide residue. Before consumption it is always wise to soak in a bowl of water with a cleansing product like Veggie Wash added, before rinsing several times.
When cooking meat and poultry, be sure to use the correct internal temperature. Easy-to-follow guidelines can be seen at http://www.culinarycafe.com/Meat_Dishes/Roasting.html
You are what you eat, so let’s stay well and happy with good, wholesome and well-prepared meals 🙂
