Sunshine and Mushrooms

Despite of plentiful sunshine, globally half of the population is becoming Vitamin D deficient. One of the major reasons is that many of us are spending most daylight hours indoors. Deficiency of Vitamin D causes problems like weaker bones, obesity, hypertension, diabetes etc. Mostly Vitamin D comes from sunlight but we can get it from food also. Though exact requirement cannot be met by food only. Its a combination of cosy sunlight with mouth-watering foods. Nobody can deny the ecstasy of sitting in sunlight in winters and enjoying fish barbecue! Oily fish such as salmon, eggs, fortified fat spreads and breakfast cereals are few examples of foods rich in vitamin D.
I was surprised to study about a trial which has combined sunlight and Mushrooms to enhance Vitamin D in Mushrooms. As per the study, one should eat more of mushrooms as they are a potent source of this multi-faceted nutrient. To boost Vitamin D, Mushrooms should be placed on a sunny windowsill 20 minutes before cooking. Doing this simple thing can raise the fungi’s level of Vitamin D. Amazing!!!! isn’t it?

Powerful words

“There are people in the world so hungry, that God cannot appear to them except in the form of bread.”
― Mahatma Gandhi
yesterday I received a message on whats app and after reading it, the above said words flashed in my mind. I was forced to think that ‘YES’, small changes can result in big contributions to the society and the change begins from ‘US’.

The message was;
Ratan Tata Tweet…
Germany is a highly industrialized country. In such a country, many will think its people lead a luxurious life.
When we arrived at Hamburg , my colleagues walked into the restaurant, we noticed that a lot of tables were empty. There was a table where a young couple was having their meal. There were only two dishes and two cans of beer on the table. I wondered if such simple meal could be romantic, and whether the girl will leave this stingy guy.
There were a few old ladies on another table. When a dish is served, the waiter would distribute the food for them, and they would finish every bit of the food on their plates.
As we were hungry, our local colleague ordered more food for us.When we left, there was still about one third of un-consumed food on the table.
When we were leaving the restaurant, the old ladies spoke to us in English, we understood that they were unhappy about us wasting so much food.
“We paid for our food, it is none of your business how much food we left behind,” my colleague told the old ladies. The old ladies were furious. One of them immediately took her hand phone out and made a call to someone. After a while, a man in uniform from Social Security organisation arrived. Upon knowing what the dispute was, he issued us a 50 Euro fine. We all kept quiet.
The officer told us in a stern voice, “ORDER WHAT YOU CAN CONSUME, MONEY IS YOURS BUT RESOURCES BELONG TO THE SOCIETY. THERE ARE MANY OTHERS IN THE WORLD WHO ARE FACING SHORTAGE OF RESOURCES. YOU HAVE NO REASON TO WASTE RESOURCES.”
The mindset of people of this rich country put all of us to shame. WE REALLY NEED TO REFLECT ON THIS. To save face, we order large quantity and also waste food when we give others a treat.

Lesson :-“MONEY IS YOURS BUT RESOURCES BELONG TO THE SOCIETY.”
