Fridge Cleaning Day --- Prevention of Flu


It it the end of October. I can see bits and pieces of scallion, carrot, shungiku ( garland chrysanthemum) , bacon etc....in the fridge.

I cooked this pasta...the sauce is bacon, garlic and shungiku and grape seed oil. Shungiku has chrysanthemum like flavor... full of
carotene and good for you. It is often used in Winter for Nabe.


The right is left over from breakfast and then I added apple juice. ( I made it )

In Japan, there are over 1 million patients of H1N1 flu and the best prevention is to stay healthy by having healthy life style. I am trying to sleep well, eat well.
So far, it is working. I have not caught cold or flu for the past one year. I have not done anything special,so I guess this " eat well " method is working for me.

According to some CNN program, beta-carotene, Vitamin C and Vitamin A and zinc are the nutrients which boost your immune system and keep you healthy.

Fruits, leafy greens, lean beef, pork, turkey, beans and yogurt .... these have Vitamin C, beta-carotene and zinc.

Let's follow it and block viruses.
