Discovery Of Fire

This discovery enabled man the means of preparing food for eating.

Today we call it cooking.

Early man used stones and wood for basic cooking.

Today we tend to find elaborate use of the stove,not only for cooking, but also a tool that captivates the appetite of anyone anywhere.

Food now is not only considered as a fundamental need but also a means of business, profit, expression, culture, and catharsis.

As an element of business and profit, restaurants and eateries have been the form of livelihood for many.

As an expression, cooking food is a way of experimenting with what you know and what you want to know more.

It is also a good skill if perfected. As culture, menus tell the country’s name. As a catharsis, you can just eat a lot on a depressed day.

Food comes in many trends in all parts of the globe.

There are really these popular trends common for the white, brown and black.

We call the tenth food trend as convenient or ready-meals.

They are becoming so popular these days.

They come in handy packaging and may be chilled or ready-to-eat food products...

Avocado - Great For Natural Skin Care

Avocado is also known as Alligator Pear originated in southern Mexico.

It has developed into a useful ingredient for our daily skin care routine.

It is rich in fat as well as protein.

These fats are monounsaturated which is good for a healthy heart.

The provision of vitamin E in avocado helps the heart to remain fit.

It is also known to supply 60% more potassium in comparison to banana.

It is also rich in fibre, foliate (folic acid), vitamin B6, iron, copper and magnesium.

Other than applying avocado on your skin, consuming it in salad form can also be beneficial for your skin.

Avocado contains vitamins like A, D, and E which has penetrating qualities to improve your skin.

Avocado oil is also very useful for skin care.

The oil is useful to remove any sun damage or age spots.

It also softens the skin and provides a moisturizing effect and can do wonders on damaged, undernourished and dehydrated skin.

Simple Recipes for Skin Care

Puffed Eyes

Cut avocado into slices and place it under each eye and relax with it for next 20 minutes.

The changes would be remarkable.

Eye Cream

Make an eye cream by mixing 5 drops of almond oil in 3 ripe slices of avocado.

Blend this mixture and dab it around your eyes. Keep it for five minutes then rinse.

Another method of making the eye cream is by using 1/4 cup avocado oil with 1/4 cup aloe vera gel.

You could also use apricot kernel, grape seed or sesame oil...

Fruits - Their Nature And Advances In Cultivation

Fruits: It is sometimes difficult to distinguish between vegetables and fruits.

For instance, the tomato is in reality a fruit, but it is commonly used as a vegetable, and rhubarb is more of a vegetable than a fruit, but it is always used as a fruit.

It can therefore be seen that the line between vegetables and fruits is not clearly drawn.

It is well to remember that fruit is usually the edible pulpy mass covering the seeds of various plants and trees, and that it is generally cooked or eaten raw with sugar, whereas vegetables are seldom sweetened in cooking.

Great strides have been made in the cultivation of fruit.

Many varieties that formerly grew wild are now commonly cultivated.

Most of the cultivated fruits are superior to the same kind in the wild state, at least in size and appearance, but often there seems to be a loss of flavor.

Through cultivation, some fruits that were almost inedible in their wild state on account of containing so many seeds have been made seedless.

Also, through cross-cultivation, varieties of fruit different from what formerly existed have been obtained.

An example of such fruit is the loganberry which is a cross between a red raspberry and a blackberry and retains many of the qualities of each.

However, some small fruits, such as blueberries, or huckleberries, are still grown wild and marketed only from their wild source.

While fruit is usually improved by cultivation, there has been a tendency through this means to produce fruits that will stand up for long periods of time, so that they may be marketed at great distances from the place where they are grown.

For instance, apples, especially those found in the market in the spring, and other fruits, which look very fine, will many times be found to have a tough skin and to be almost tasteless.

In general, fruits of delicate flavor and texture cannot be kept very long after they have ripened...

Quercetin - A Flavonol With Its Benefits And Side Effects

Quercetin is one of the flavonoids groups. It is in fact a flavonol.

Functions of flavonoids in plants

Flavonoids are widely distributed in plants fulfilling many functions.

Flavonoids are the most important plant pigments for flower coloration producing yellow or red/blue pigmentation in petals designed to attract pollinator animals.

In higher plants, Flavonoids are involved in UV filtration, symbiotic nitrogen fixation and floral pigmentation.

They may perform as a chemical messenger or physiological gauge and can also act as cell cycle inhibitors.

Flavonoids secreted by the root of their host plant help Rhizobia in the infection stage of their symbiotic relationship with legumes like peas, beans, clover, and soy.

Rhizobia living in soil are able to sense the flavonoids and this triggers the secretion of Nod factors, which in turn are recognized by the host plant and can lead to root hair deformation and several cellular responses such as ion fluxes and the formation of a root nodule.

In fact, some flavonoids have inhibitory activity against organisms that cause plant disease e.g. Fusarium oxysporum.

It is found in apples, onions, tea, red grapes, leafy green vegetables, citrus fruits, broccoli, cherries, raspberries, prickly pear cactus, and some varieties of honey.

Especially, those made from the Eucalyptus flower.

Quercetin is a very active form of flavonoid.

It is present in many medicine plants that have been used since ancient times, like the Aloe Vere.

It is also found in many fruits, vegetables, and herbs.

Quercetin is anti inflammatory, which helps to promote healing and boosts the body's immune system.

It also helps in preventing certain ailments and diseases...

Salt and Pepper - History Origination Cultivation Types And Flavors

Salt and Pepper: A Perspective

Have you ever given a thought about salt and pepper?

There’s more to it than just the shaker on the table.

Pepper is the most widely traded spice in the world and served as the incentive for Christopher Columbus and others to search for a direct oceanic route to India.

Hippocrates prescribed it as a digestive aid, and the active ingredient in pepper, piperine, is what makes it hot and is still used today as a heart and kidney stimulant.

Historically, salt and pepper have been used as currency, medicinally and as seasoning.

Plato wrote, “Pepper is small in quantity and great in value.”

Ancient Egypt, the Greeks and the Romans all competed for supplies, which were shipped via small boats in the Mediterranean or overland by camel along the Silk Road.

Both routes were treacherous, with the danger of sinking on the voyage contrasted against the cost of buying off Arab middlemen.

Interestingly, all varieties of pepper come from the fruit of a perennial climbing shrub, and are grown by a handful of countries within 15 degrees of the equator.

Differences in appearance and flavor are the result of picking the berries at different stages.

Below is a list of characteristics, point of origin and best uses.

1. Green peppercorns – Picked before maturity and more expensive due to smaller yields and extra processing.

Aromatic, but not pungent. Used in French, Creole, and Thai food...

Mustard - Versatile Plant With Health Benefits

Mustard is a highly versatile plant, which lends its fiery flavour to many dishes and condiments through the use of it as both a herb and a spice.

Botanically speaking, mustard is a member of the brassica family along with vegetables such as cabbage and broccoli, and as such it contains a high level of sulphur which is responsible for the heat we taste in it, especially in the seeds.

Mustard can be grown either for salad use or for its seeds, which are the main ingredient of the table condiment which most people think of when they hear the word 'mustard'.

The greens of the young plant can be eaten in a salad, and have a similar taste to cress, which it is closely related to.

The leaves may be a little strong for use on their own, but make a great combination with other salads of character such as rocket, baby spinach or watercress.

Most of us, however, are more familiar with mustard in the guise of a potently hot yellow paste which we use either in cooking or as a condiment - most famously of course on such everyday foods as hot dogs and burgers...

Basil - The Sweet Herb

Sweet Basil (Ocimum basilicum)

Basil is my favorite of all the herbs because it is so versatile and easy to grow.

Those of you who follow my recipes site will know that I like to grow my own herbs and as basil is normally ready to eat just 6-weeks after planting I naturally use it often.

Basil is an attractive annual, about 18 inches (450 mm) tall with light-green, fairly broad leaves.

There are several species of cultivated basil, one having purple leaves, so it is also a decorative plant in your garden.

Basil grows easily from seed planted after all danger of frost has passed.

Pinch stems when the plant reaches 18 inches (450 mm) tall to promote bushy, compact growth.

Avoid lush growth as it may reduce the flavor.

Green leaves can be picked about 6 weeks following planting.

It is best to cut leaves for drying just before flowers open.

However, if you can use fresh, the taste is far better and it is also an extra vegetable to compliment a healthy diet.

Spicy-scented basil leaves are one of the most popular of all herbs used in cooking.

There are two particular ways I like to use basil; the first, and most common, is to mix it with pine nuts and a little garlic, a splash of balsamic vinegar and extra virgin olive oil in a blender to make Pesto.

Pesto can be kept for a few days in the refrigerator. Use about 90% basil to 10% pine nuts...

Magnesium - A Mineral Underestimated

Magnesium: Our legs are probably one of the most active and abused parts of our body.

Legs are particularly important for motion and standing.

Playing sports, running, and even for breaking a fall.

But these legs are also prone to pain as they, in combination with the hips, knees, ankles and feet, move the entire body’s weight and provide support.

In many cases, it is nearly impossible to determine the cause of leg cramps and leg pain.

Leg pain is a common symptom and complaint and finding a good leg pain relief can be taxing.

Leg pain may include knee, foot, and other leg discomforts.

Pain in these areas can stem from injuries or conditions such as fractures, tendinitis (e.g., Achilles tendinitis, tennis elbow), shin splints, and carpal tunnel syndrome.

It may also include muscle cramps, injuries, inflammation, nerve damage, dehydration or depletion of potassium, sodium, calcium or the other mineral that is regarded as the “forgotten” mineral.

Magnesium is sometimes regarded as a “moothie” mineral since it has the ability to relax our muscles.

Our nerves also depend upon magnesium to avoid becoming over-excited.

The use of magnesium as a muscle relaxer is familiar to many individuals who have taken liquid magnesium.

Magnesium is usually referred to as a “macromineral,” which means that our food must provide us with hundreds of milligrams of magnesium every day.

Inside our bodies, magnesium is found mostly in our bones (60-65%), but also in our muscles (25%), and in other cell types and body fluids.

Like all minerals, magnesium cannot be made in our body and must therefore be plentiful in our diet in order for us to remain healthy...

Food Recipes - Cooking Tips Healthy Eating Ideas And Food Guide

Food recipes: Forty years ago, a first-class stamp cost a nickel, a new science fiction television show called "Star Trek" made its debut and a tasty topping began its crunchy history of enhancing salads, baked potatoes and Americans' cupboards.

General Mills first tested Bac-Os as a better-for-you alternative to bacon in select markets in 1965. Bit by bit, the product's popularity took off, and it was dubbed a "food of the future" in early television advertisements.

Consumers enjoyed the convenient product's multipurpose use-a savory ingredient used to jazz up casseroles, salads, soups and other favorite dishes.

"A jar of Bac-Os brought the flavor and texture of crisp bacon right to the family dinner table in a fraction of the time," says Maggie Gilbert, manager of the Betty Crocker Kitchens test kitchen.

"Because they were considered superconvenient and required no refrigeration, they soon became a familiar ingredient in popular recipes of the day, such as holiday party dips, sweet-sour beans and twice-baked potatoes."

The brand debuted in its first print advertising campaign in 1970...

Cuban Cuisine - Rich Cultural Heritage

Cuban Cuisine: The East Caribbean island of Cuba has a rich cultural heritage from which has arisen culinary traditions that are as vibrant and varied as the variety of cultures that have contributed to the development of this distinct and delicious cuisine.

In addition to the ancient influence of the native peoples of Cuba, the Spaniards brought their own culinary styles, tinged by those of the Moors who held huge parts of Spain for centuries.

The slaves that were brought from Africa made significant culinary and cultural contributions, with other culinary traditions being brought to the island with the French colonists fleeing uprisings in Haiti.

As these various influences came together, a distinctly Cuban flavor and style evolved, which is reminiscent of country peasant styles of cooking by oral tradition and eye, rather than relying on specific measurements and the creation of dishes that tend towards the simple and hearty, and that can be left on their own to simmer.

Fussy, heavy sauces are unusual and deep-frying is simply not a favored cooking method.

The island nation, naturally, uses a great deal of seafood in its cuisine, which encourages the use of simple cooking techniques and spicing that is meant to enhance, not smother, natural flavors...

East Indian Cuisine - Famous For Seafoods And Delectable Fish Curries

East Indian cuisine: East India, with a complex history that includes long periods of European colonization, has developed culinary traditions that reflect centuries of tradition and a variety of cultural influences.

In addition to the various cultures that have been assimilated into the cuisine of the region, the geography also has influenced the development of the culinary traditions of East India, as has the climate.

Portuguese and Spanish explorers first brought the spices of India to widespread European use in the 15th and 16th centuries, inspiring European political and economic colonization of the area.

The famous British East India Company and the Dutch East India Company, both established in the 17th century, were companies specifically created for the production and sale of a variety of products from the region, including spices.

Naturally, as the native populations interacted with the European peoples, including through forced service in their homes, a European influence came to affect local cuisines.

Middle Eastern Cuisine - Food That Celebrates Life

‘Middle eastern cuisine’ is a broad term that encompasses many different cooking styles from a number of different countries.

Moroccan, Syrian, Greek, Arabian – the various cuisines of the middle east share a great deal – and have many differences.

The food of the Middle East is a celebration of life.

No matter which country, the staples are the fresh fruits and vegetables that grow in the hills.

The spices and flavorings of Middle Eastern food are those that awaken the senses, sparkling against the thicker, richer tastes of the main ingredients.

Mints, lemon, garlic, rosemary – all have a fresh, astringent quality that cleanses the palate and refreshes the taste buds.

Throughout the region, the cuisine varies – but these things remain the same: fresh ingredients, astringent and piquant spices, olive oil, and little meat.

Lebanese

The tiny country – about the size of Connecticut – is nestled into the shores of the Mediterranean Sea, at the very crook of the fertile Crescent.

Its contributions to the cuisine of the entire Middle Eastern region of the world are unmistakable.

The flavors that spice the foods of all the surrounding lands can be found here in abundance – olive oil, lemon, garlic and mint...

Szechwan Cuisine - Chinese Food

Szechwan Cuisine: The cuisine of the Western region of China is well-known for its spiciness, but many Western palates overlook the complex interplay of savory, sour, hot and sweet flavors that underlie the fiery spice of the Szechwan pepper and other spices that give the Szechwan cuisine its characteristic burn.

For decades, most of the world was familiar mainly with Cantonese cuisine, and thought of it as ‘Chinese cuisine’.

In reality, though, China is an enormous country that encompasses nearly every kind of climate imaginable.

The amazing variety of foods, spices and climates have led to many distinct styles of Chinese cuisine.

Szechwan cuisine, originating in a steamy, sub-tropical climate, includes smoked, pickled and spiced foods, as well as foods spiced with a heavy hand for both preservation and flavor.

While the Szechwan pepper, a fruit that grows in the Chongging province, has always been used in Szechwan cooking, it wasn’t until Christopher Columbus brought the chili back from his travels that it gained notoriety.

Besides the flavors that sear the mouth, Szechwan cooking uses an interplay of flavors to create the full impact of a dish.

Hot and Sour Soup, for instance, when prepared properly is neither exclusively hot, nor ultimately sour...

Beverages - Drink In The Diet

Nature And Classes Of Beverages:

Throughout the lifetime of every person there is constant need for solid food to preserve health and prolong life; and, just as such food is necessary to satisfy the requirements of the body, so, too, is there need for water.

As is well known, the composition of the body is such that it contains more liquid than solid material, the tissues and the bones weighing much less than the liquid.

A tremendous amount of this liquid is continually being lost through the kidneys, through each pore in the skin, and even through every breath that is exhaled, and if continued good health is to be maintained this loss must be constantly made up.

This loss is greater in very hot weather or in the performance of strenuous exercise than under ordinary conditions, which accounts for the fact that more than the usual amount of liquid must be supplied during such times.

So necessary is liquid refreshment that the body cannot exist without it for any great length of time.

In fact, if the supply were cut off so that no more could be obtained, the body would begin to use its own fluids and death would soon occur.

A person can live for many days without solid food, but it is not possible to live for more than a very few days without drink...

Healthy Eating - Healthy Lunches with Style

Healthy eating: Lunch is an important meal in your day, so don’t skip it, even if you are tempted to do so.

Many people believe that eating a big breakfast means that lunch is unnecessary, but that’s simply not the case.

When you don’t eat lunch, you are more likely to snack during the day on unhealthy foods or overeat at suppertime.

Your body also becomes depleted of nutrients when you skip lunch, so it s better for you to always eat lunch, even if it means making a bit of extra free time available in your day.

However, there are ways in which you can ensure that your lunch is fairly healthy, no matter what your specific needs.

If you are at work or school over lunchtime, you can save lots of money by carrying a lunch rather than grabbing lunch from a fast food restaurant or other food source.

Your own meals will also be more nutritious and, in many cases, tastier.

If you are not a morning person, packing a lunch doesn’t mean that you have to wake up earlier to prepare this.

Simply pack it the night before.

Many food choices can help you to pack a lunch that will be the envy of your coworkers...

Why not jazz up your morning ritual with cup of rich gourmet coffee.

Unless money is no object, why not save the gourmet cup of coffee for the weekends.

Beer Brewing - Beverage Brewing Big And Creative In America

Beer brewing is becoming big business with a resurgence of traditional types of ales and lagers combining with more exotic offerings.

Breweries in America are growing at an exponential rate.

With a colorful history, beer carries on its controversial way to regain the traditional role it’s always played as an every-day beverage, while taking on a more creative flavor to please every palate.

Back in 1620, when the Mayflower came to America’s shores, the boat fell a bit short of its destination due to a shortage of beer, according to a passenger’s journal.

One doesn’t think Puritans would have drunk beer – they were Puritans, after all - however this was the every-day drink of choice.

People drank beer as we drink pop, juice, milk and water today. Each tavern and inn brewed its own beer.

It is only in modern society that we see beer as having a perilous quality.

There were no laws governing beer brewing and drinking. There were no police roadblocks to catch drunk drivers.

How much damage could a horse and cart inflict?

Certainly there were no scantily-clad women prancing about at parties, drinking beer and impressing men with their sudsy sexiness...

Fruit - Their Value In The Diet

Fruit, as is generally understood, is the fleshy, juicy product of some plant or tree which, when ripe, is suitable for use as food.

Although some fruits are seedless, they generally contain the seeds of the plants or trees that produce them.

Many fruits require cooking to make them palatable, others are never cooked, and still others may be cooked or eaten raw, as desired.

Fruits, because they are wholesome, appetizing, and attractive, occupy a valuable place in the diet...

To meet these requirements of the human body, there is nothing to take the place of food, not merely any kind, however, but the right kind.
