What are Toxins and How Do They Enter The Body

What are Toxins?
 
Toxin is a poisonous substance that can affect our body negatively and also lead to the malfunction of organs. Toxins are mostly understood as poisonous substances that are contained in the chemicals present in our food, water and environment, they are very hazardous if they come in contact and react with, or are absorbed by body tissues. They are produced by almost all living organisms, plants and human beings and micro organisms like bacteria, fungus, algae etc. However they are not harmful to the organism they are produced by but they are extremely harmful to the human beings.
How do toxins enter our body?
 
These toxins can enter our body through various mediums like:
Food: synthetic additives and preservatives used in our food products, herbicides and pesticides used agricultural process.
what are toxins

Air: Polluted air, cigarette smoke, room freshener, deodorant sprays, toiletries that we use and many other ways.

Water: toxins also enter our body through contaminated water and also through chemicals used in water.
There are other mediums also like prescription drugs, vaccines and household paints, varnishes etc.
All these are called external toxins and they enter our body while we eat, drink or inhale.
Apart from the external toxins our body also produces toxins for e.g.  As the by product of normal metabolism process.
Thus both natural and manmade things have toxins and whether it is internal or external they are harmful.

Process of eliminating toxins from body:

The process of removing toxins or flushing toxins out of our body is called detoxification. In normal conditions our body eliminates toxins through perspiration, feces, exhalation and urine. Thus in the process of detoxification our liver and kidneys play a very important role. When the normal process of toxin elimination is hampered due to any reason the toxins starts reacting with body tissues and cause various health ailments ranging from mild to fatal.
Intake of toxins through various mediums kind of overload and then comes the time when we need to use another methods to detoxify our body i.e. when the intake or presence of toxins exceeds the amount of toxins our body eliminates, we require to undergo a body detoxification process which is done through various methods. The most common body detoxification method is raw juice diet and fasting.
Thus we should try to avoid and limit the use of synthetic and chemical based products. Try and use natural and organic products as much as possible drink 8-10 glasses of water daily and maintain personal hygiene.

Bharva Parval is a recipe that gives your platter a twist, its a tasty break from the regular stuffed vegetable recipes like bharwa karela (stuffed bitter gourd) and bharwa Bhindi (stuffed Okra). Parval is a vegetable that belongs to the gourd family. It is called pointed gourd in English. Today Im sharing a recipe that is not as popular as other stuffed vegetable recipes, but if you have to believe me this bharvan Parval tastes delicious.

In this recipe we first prepare the stuffing that is made with simple everyday spices. It is only the magic of Vinegar and sugar that takes the taste of the stuffing to a different level. This same stuffing can be used to prepare stuffed baigan (eggplant) and snake gourd.

Ingredients For Stuffed Pointed Gourd Recipe

Parwals – 8 nos.

Ginger Garlic paste  – 3 tsp

Cumin Powder – 1/2 tsp

Coriander Powder – 1/2 tsp

Red Chilly Powder – 1/2 tsp

Turmeric Powder – 1/2 tsp

Cumin Seeds – 1/4 tsp

Fennel Seeds ( saunf)- 1/4 tsp

Mustard Seeds – 1/4 tsp

Hing – a pinch

Sugar – 1/4 tsp

Vinegar (white cooking vinegar)- 2 tsp

Oil

Salt to Taste

Let us go Step-by-Step in making this  delectable Bharwa Parwal Recipe

 1. Prepare the  Parwal

Wash the Parwals clean and pat dry with a kitchen towel

Peel the Pointed gourds and cut off the tips of both the ends

Now slit the parwals lengthwise to provide an opening for stuffing it

Remove the seeds and flesh, de-seed all the Parwals (save it as this will be added to the stuffing)

2. Preparing the Stuffing

bharwa parwal stuffing

Since this is the recipe for bharwa parwal you need to prepare the stuffing which defines how delicious your dish comes out to be.

Heat one teaspoon oil in a non stick pan ( I suggest non stick because your stuffing wont stick to the pan while you saute it).

Add quarter teaspoon each of Mustard seeds, Cumin Seeds and Fennel Seeds (saunf) and allow them to splutter.

Now add Ginger Garlic Paste and saute

When the oil starts oozing out add the powdered masalas i.e Turmeric powder, red chilly powder, Coriander powder and cumin powder.

Add salt, sugar and vinegar.

Once the masala is nicely cooked and the oil has separated  add in the flesh and seed, cook for another 2-3 mins.

When everything is well cooked  turn off the heat

Now remove the stuffing in a plate and allow it to cool

3. Stuff the Parwals

bharwa parwal recipe

Start stuffing the parwals one by one ensuring you divide the stuffing equally for all the parwals

4. Cook the Parwals

There are two methods that I know are used to cook the bharwa parwals the Frying Method and the Steaming Method

Bharwa Parwals prepared by using the frying method can be eaten right away but the steamed parwals require further shallow frying to form a firm crisp layer on the outer side. The steaming method is perfect to be added to a thick spicy gravy.

Here I am going by the frying method

Heat oil in a pan add a pinch of turmeric and Hing (Asafoetida)

Place all the stuffed gourds in the pan and allow to cook, at this point you can add a pinch of salt for seasoning the Parwals.

Cook it from all the sides, make sure you turn the Parwals very carefully, applying too much pressure can push the stuffing out from the Parwals.

Cook it well from all sides

Once done, serve hot with Dal Rice.

Easy Spanish Omelette Recipe For Breakfast

Omelettes are so much fun to eat, they are easy, delicious and  quick. I have relished omelettes in many forms and with different variations. Here I will have to admit that with every new recipe of Omelette that I try  my love for it doubles. I really cannot stop experimenting with this divine devil, Mr. Egg.

I like to enhance the flavor of egg by introducing different ingredients to my regular Omelette. And this recipe is a perfect amalgamation of two most loved ingredients of people around the world, Potatoes and Egg.

Its a simple breakfast recipe, a Potato and Egg Omelette. A Spanish Omelette is a combination of crispy fried potatoes and egg, seasoned with salt and pepper. I have seen people adjusting the recipe according to their taste and preference. Some common add-ons are onions, spring onions and herbs.

In my  recipe for making a Spanish Omelette, I have given it a healthy twist. Instead of deep frying the potatoes I prefer to grill them, but its completely a matter of personal choice. It will be equally perfect if you want to go with the deep frying method.

I have never been to Spain and I have no idea how a Spanish omelette would taste in its homeland. This recipe has my own twist and Im sure its close to its native counterpart.
