Talagang pinahahanga mo ako orel sa iyong pagiging resourceful. Talong-talo mo pa ngayon ang mga manghihilot natin sa Ibaba na sina mang pedrong huwit at mag-asawang tonyo at ising.

Ang maidaragdag ko lamang sa iyong lista ay ang puno ng bayabas. Ang mga dahon nito ang paborito ng mga naglalanggas ng sugat at ng mga nanganganak.

Ang bungang hinog naman ay di panig-ang na ang pinag-sasawsawan ay ang patis labo nina amang tibok. Huwag lamang kalimutan na pigaan ng sintunis ang sawsawan.

Keep it up.

Malunggay at mga Culinary Herbs

Ang malunggay at mga culinary herbs

BANTAY KAPWA Ni Cielito "Mahal" Del Mundo
Pilipino STAR Ngayon 08/24/2003

Marami ang sumulat sa akin at nagtatanong tungkol sa malunggay. Gusto nilang magkaroon ng karagdagang kaalaman sa biyaya ng malunggay.

Sa mga babaing kapapanganak at nagpapasuso, ang malunggay ay epektibong pamparami ng gatas ng ina. Gaya ng mani at beans ang malunggay ay brain food din. Limang beses na doble ang Vitamin C content nito kaysa sa kalamansi. May taglay din itong protina, calcium, potassium at iba pang mahahalagang mineral para sa kalusugan.

Gamot ang malunggay sa sipon, sakit ng ulo, panlalabo ng mata at maging sa kanser. Sa India at Malaysia ang ugat ng malunggay ay inilalaga tapos ay iniinom bilang gamot sa sakit ng tiyan at hika.

Samantala, malakas din ang medicinal values ng mga pagkaing tinaguriang culinary herbs, ayon sa Bureau of Plant Industry. Ang bawang, sibuyas, luya, mane at kamatis ay ilan lamang sa mga paboritong panlahok sa pagkain para lalong malasahan ang sarap ng inilutong pagkain. Napakasustansiya ng kamote, gabi, patatas at iba pang halamang ugat na ginagamit ding pansahog sa pagkain. Ang mga halamang ugat ay dapat na itanim sa lupang mabuhangin at buhaghag at kailangang hindi maasin at mapait ang lupa at dapat na may 24 hanggang 30 antas Centigrado ang sikat ng araw para lalong yumabong ang mga halamang ito.

Sa Europa ang mga pagkaing pampalasa o mga culinary herbs ay madalas na ihain sa mesa.
