Heart-shaped Moringa Leaf catches my attention

Having the Moringa leaves in our chicken or fish soup is not new to me. But seeing a heart-shaped moringa leaf from a bunch of stems that I was stuffing, it really caught my attention.

Moringa Leaf

From the image above, the heart-shaped leaf is just so perfectly heart-shaped for me. This, for me, is just a reminder that this Moringa not just provides a lot of benefits for me as I am still breastfeeding but for my heart as well. And maybe this reminds me that it is February already. Smiley

But whatever it would be, this heart-shaped moringa, or even those with regular leaf shape, has a lot of good stuff to provide to us. It is used as a supplement in treating the so-called “tired blood” or anemia. It is also used to treat arthritis and other joint pain, asthma, cancer, constipation, diabetes and a lot more illnesses and even parasitic infections. As mentioned above, this Moringa  also helps me produce or increase my breast milk production.

Moreover, locally, this Moringa is known as Malunggay, Kamunggay, Kalamunggay. Even the seeds and the flowers of this Moringa plant can be added in any soups and can be consumed.

How To Start a Food-Selling Business

Food is a basic necessity. People need to eat and that’s what makes food and beverages a popular business idea ever there is. Many people dream of starting their own food business but have reservations about it due to lack of funds.

But the good news is you really don’t have to start big. You may be surprised how you can utilize your own kitchen to start a home-based food-catering business. Or perhaps you can invest on a small vending cart for a start.

There shouldn’t be an issue to these types of business as long as you’re equipped with all the necessary tools (you can find great deals for a receipt printer online) and of course permission to operate from your local officials to get you going.

Remember, no matter what size your business is, it is yours. Do it right and who knows you may even progress into having your own stationary restaurant in time!

1 bag of spinach
1 can of low fat coconut milk
1 teaspoon of green Thai curry paste
1 red pepper
Fresh basil leaves
A handful of cherry tomatoes
Jasmine rice to serve

Method:

1. Begin by par-boiling the sweet potato, then drain and leave to one side. Meanwhile, fry the pepper with a teaspoon of the green curry paste. Add the tomatoes and cook until they are soft and the juices begin to ooze out.
2. Add the coconut milk and mix well until you have a creamy sauce. Add the sweet potato and leave to simmer for 10 minutes.
3. While the curry is simmering, prepare the rice. Add an extra crunch to the rice by adding in some flaked almonds or even some raisins to sweeten it up.
4. Just before serving, add in a couple of handfuls of spinach. Serve with the rice and sprinkle with some finely chopped basil leaves.

Malunggay Veggie Pancit Bato

A healthy pancit — noodles, was  served to me, prepared by my sister the other night while I was checking for web hosting sites that offer great services.

I did not know, honestly, how my sister prepared this pancit or even the Malunggay vegetable recipe itself. I just made myself full after she served it in front of me. LOL!

Above is the packaging of the Malunggay Veggie Pancit Bato. This is a locally-made noodle from Bato, Bicol Region. The Veggie Pancit Bato is available in three different vegetable flavors — Malunggay, Carrots and Squash.

Moreover, I was talking earlier about the web hosting that I lurked for. Yes! I was looking for web hosting sites and suffice it to share that I have found one site that gives information in guiding people especially bloggers on how to choose the best web hosting sites for their respective blogs and other websites. The site shares a list of high-quality, tested to be very reliable, affordable and having a good customer service and support center web hosting sites. Reviews made and shared by current users for each web hosting sites are also available as a reference of users.
