Food for the mind and the body:Countdown 365/6 [Feb. 3, 2012]

Food for thought:  Ashley Jones on my mind, and other such misguided, misunderstood multitudes…

  • Everyone is a product of circumstances, upbringing and opportunities, and the physical, mental and spiritual health of each individual has a bearing on their outlook, thoughts, words and actions. Remember this before condemning someone.
  • Feel emotions without becoming emotional; empathise without losing your objectivity. Beware of taking an extreme stance. Be ‘involved’ rather than ‘activistic.’
  • A little less negative adds to a lot more positive in human relationships. For a start, let’s try to be a little more polite when we are angry, a little less self-absorbed when we are sad, a little more understanding when we are upset.

Food for the body: Neer more [Buttermilk]

Add 4 ounces of water to 2 ounces of curds. Add salt to taste – the saltier, the better. Grate fresh ginger and add 1/2 a teaspoon full. Add a pinch of asafoetida and a few curry leaves, pinched into bits. Stir till salt dissolves. Drink cool or cold. A refreshing drink for a hot afternoon. And full of natural goodness.
