THE SAFE FOOD HANDBOOK: LISTERIA-RISK FOODS PREGNANT WOMEN SHOULD AVOID | Plantsheal | Scoop.it

The author has written a number of blogs on L. monocytogenes. She writes, "...I believe it to be one of the greatest food threats of our age.

Generally speaking anyone at high risk of listeriosis should not eat:

• pre-packed cold salads including coleslaw and fresh fruit salad
• pre-cut fruit
• pre-cooked cold chicken
• cold delicatessen meats
• paté
• raw seafood
• smoked seafood (for example, smoked salmon)
• unpasteurised milk or milk products

Moringa Recipes!

Moringa Recipes! | Plantsheal | Scoop.it

The healing properties of Moringa are documented by ancient cultures. Moringa possesses exceptional oxidative stability which may explain why the Egyptians placed vases of moringa oil in their tombs.

 

Uses and Recipes:

 

Moringa powder can be used as a daily dietary supplement; as an ingredient in soups, sauces, breads, or desserts, or as a deeply nourishing tea.

 

Initially, it is recommended that you start by taking ½ teaspoon of Moringa everyday for about 3 days or for one week in order to get the body accustomed to it and to minimize strong detoxification effects. After this, gradually increase daily intake to the recommended amount.
