Good Health Is Wealth

If I had the option to choice between wealth and health, I will choose health.

Many will agreed with me here. But certainly some will not.

Health is wealth indeed. With good health, one has a strong body in which to go for and make wealth.

It is with a sound healthy mind and body that one can brainstorm and create all the natural resources one can imagine.

With this thinking, we need a good healthy foods,that is well prepared to sustain the body.

Not only this, but vigorous to moderate exercise that induced breathing and blood flow to carry oxygen and dissolved food nutrients in the blood stream all over the body.

Good health is wealth indeed.

Soups For Promoting Good Health Part2

Soups are so delicious that even kids and toddlers enjoy same.

Provide you enriched it with their favorite vegetables plus fish or meat or both as we noted in part1.

I remember my nine months old babe watching me enjoying my plate of chop soup, a yam pepper soup, sauced with basil leaves and sardines.

I offer only a watery liquid as a gift to her. She opened her mouth and took same. It delights her to ask for more. Again, I gave less than half a teaspoonful of the soup. The peppery spice hit her mind and I gave some water.

Till then, she had been taking here a little and there a little.

This is how we should all introduced our little ones to whatever we eat; instead of breastfeeding them over a year or two, then introducing solid foods to them.

This can have an adverse effect like allergy on them.

Now, I have a five year old girl too. She likes soups all the while. Give her a soup to eat with rice or yam, and if you do not mind, she will used up the soup, instead of finishing it with the chop of rice.

This is also my weakness when it comes to eating yam or plantain pepper soup meals.

I will devour the soup first with the onions and basil leaves before anything else. In fact, the whole plate of soup will go down my throat and I will ask for a second helping. It is with this that I go with the yam or plantain.

A warm plate of pepper soup can be cherished by adding half a teaspoonful of dried ginger powder. 

This is a booster to stimulate the digestive, excretory, respiratory and immune systems.

Vegetable Soups

Soups and there sources differ all over the world.

Some soups are made with only vegetables. I mean these were cooked without any fish, or sea food, or meat. In other words, no animal products ever enter the pot.

Legumes, like beans are the main ingredients. Pepper, spices, oils, leafy greens are add. At most three or four kinds of bean in place of fish or meat is required. The various beans complement one another to give a protein of first class status. Otherwise, disease is the result.

Soups InVarious Regions Of The World

When it comes to regions of the world, many varieties of soups can contain differing ingredients. The puree or thickness even differs. Seeds, nuts, fruits, and sometimes butter, milk, wine, and eggs are included. Some soups contain carrots, coconuts, cucumbers, water melon or sweet melon. You never can tell how soups go with many harvest of nature.

Mushrooms are many favorite in these type of varieties.

Canned Soups

For convenient sake, some popular soups were canned for export and domestic consumption in the exporting countries. These are sold all over the world. The prices are fair. One just opened a can and warmed it in a pot; or you warm it in a micro oven and enjoy.

With some, you can add any fresh ingredient like milk, fish, meat, or anything that fancy your preferences.

Soups are very popular meals everywhere. It connotes health.

Did you know that the word soup is the same as restaurant? It comes from the French word soupe, which originates from the latin word suppra.

It means restoring something. It refers to a concentrate that is an antitode to bodily exhaustion.

In the 16th century when fruit juices were getting on stream, soups had already made vital marks. 

They were being marketed and seems more popular and cheaper than juices to get anywhere. They energized the body more than lemonades, which are the first bottled juices and is costly, being first imported from the Middle East.

Orange juices came late, where soup already is king.

Jean Baptiste, a French nobleman who flees from the French Revolution to Boston (USA) is credit to opening a restaurant and named it “The Restorator.”

He thus became famous with the title “The Prince of Soup.”

A plate of soup is a good energy and health restorer.

To your good health!
