Mayonnaise kills the lice

A pizza-guy a day keep the sadness away! He has the ability to instantly make brighten us up even on a boring day.

And we can’t thank the food service in India enough for the popularity of the food delivery mechanism. The pizza on the door is the idea of the perfect day and the dips of cheese and mayonnaise are just like the cherries on the cake!

One day I tried to use mayonnaise dip not as food but something else that I had read somewhere about, and here’s what I found out- it  can indeed be used for hair lice treatment. For me, it turned out to be beneficial so let me enlighten you about it!homemade mayonnaise on white background

• What does a mayonnaise sauce recipe contain?

A mayonnaise sauce recipe contains four main ingredients which are: oil, vinegar, egg yolk and lemon juice. The commercial mayonnaise cups contain about 70-85% fat and these ingredients are good at fighting lice.

• How does a mayonnaise help in treatment?

If you’re a science student, you’d understand this- Oil has viscosity properties and hence, it helps in suffocating lice and nymphs. If you’re not a science student, you need not worry about the technicalities. Just know that it does help!

• How to use mayonnaise on head?

Apply mayonnaise on head and keep it overnight, or for 8 hours. Then, use shampoo to wash it off. You would see multiple dead lice on the floor. Repeat the process for a better result. Use a high fat mayonnaise for the process because low amount of oil may not be enough!

• Does mayonnaise also kill lice eggs?

The oil in the mayonnaise works on lice whereas the vinegar and lemon juice work on their eggs. While mayonnaise is not that effective in killing live lice eggs, I suggest that you still give it a try. Something is better than nothing and killing lice is a good start!

Surprising Benefits of Tomato Ketchup!

We are never grown up enough to stop liking and licking tomato ketchup. As a child I remember I used to eat anything if I had tomato ketchup with it. Just about anything! Even rice. Crazy as it may sound; I still love ketchup like most us and I love to lick it off the plate when no one is seeing! And I have no shame in admitting that I do not like ketchup pouches served with various food items as condiments, to be wasted. Yes, I keep them with me if I have extra. But who knew our all-time favorite ketchup also beneficial to our body? Here’s a list of the benefits of ketchup, may you never stop liking it!

It is low in calories

In comparison to other condiments like that of mayo, tomato sauce has drastically lesser in calories. Mixing a spoonful or two to your dish can actually help you cut down your calorie intake!  If instead of two spoons of mayo you have two spoons of ketchup, you would save 1,190 calories weekly!

It is low in fats

What can be more satisfying than knowing what to love to eat is low in fat? Well tomato ketchup is! Indian tomato sauce contains almost zero fat, with less than 0.1 gram in each 1-tablespoon. This means it does not have any saturate fat which is harmful and often leads to cardiovascular issues and other health issues.  A tablespoon of mayonnaise contains 11 grams of fat which makes ketchup a better condiment option.

It is high in lycopene

I came to know that Lycopene is an ingredient in ketchup which makes it a healthy option over any available sauces. It is an anti-oxidant which is there in plenty in tomato sauce. It helps you fight the risk of stomach, prostrate, cervical, and lung cancers. It also keeps cholesterol level under check and generates the healthy cholesterols in the body. So a thumbs up to the ketchup suppliers of India; may we always have tomato ketchups in abundance!

Traditional Method of Serving Food

Tracing the history of food service in India, serving food in banana leaves was a common practice before the culture of serving food in metal plates came to the mainstream. Indians were not in the habit of using soap until 17th century when Arab traders introduced these which were later popularized by the British invaders. Because it was considered unhygienic to use the same utensil to eat food, therefore using a banana leaf was considered a hygienic practice also because it could be disposed easily, else an individual might just reuse the unwashed utensil over and over again.

To further reason out the prevalent use of banana leaves for best food service in India in the past could possibly be that no other variety of leaf which was this large was that accessible. However this cultural practice of serving is still retained even when regular chutneys are replaced by Thousand Island dressing in India and especially in the southern part of India. Here are some of the reasons and benefits of using banana leaves for serving purposes:

-It is one of the most eco-friendly measures and food-serving system. Also because it degrades quickly so unlike metallic plates it doesn’t require extensive cleaning and washing with water.

-It is a healthy. Because banana is rich in antioxidants it helps in fighting and controlling cancer. Several researches also prove that the leaves contain polyphenol oxidase which assists in combating Parkinson’s disease. Its leaves are also used to prepare certain ayurvedic medicines. Therefore by serving hot food on banana leaves, you certainly ensure a good health.

-In spite of eating in a metallic plate which is barely washed, it is better to serve in banana leaves which shall be equally hygienic every time you eat.

-It is a plausible choice. Since not every leaf is as big as banana leaves so banana leaves are a better and practical choice to serve food in.

-It is an authentic practice. Serving in banana leaves communicates effectively our cultural inheritance.

Cooking Made Easy

I am Nisha. When I was at mumma’s place, everyone would say that nishu…how would you adjust after marriage at husband’s place? Reason being I was the youngest at home, and my elder sisters would pamper me like a baby. All I did at home is eat, go to school/college, shopping and sleeping.

Cleaning, cooking, household stuff were like never there in my dictionary. It’s not that i wasn’t interested; it’s just that I had never done it. I would feel how difficult it is to cook different stuff every single day. Then, would satisfy myself with the answer that when we cannot eat same food every day, then how can same food be cooked every single day. I know, would sound stupid to some, but trust me, something that I would make me steal the deal is Kettle chips India.

Mrs. Bector's Cremica - kettle chips India

No matter what’s the time or day it is, anyone and everyone can have kettle chips India. This infact turned out to be a life saver for us. Now, when i say ‘us’, i mean it too. It’s been two months that i have got married. Post marriage, the both of us, I and my husband shifted to Bangalore.  Everything was perfect, but let’s get practical…honeymoon period is over. Dining at five star restaurants and getting pampered with lavishing luxuries is partially over. Now I had to fit-in to the bracket of ideal wife. Afterall, somewhere down the line, he would be expecting me to feed him good food. Initially, kettle chips came to rescue; I ensured that i bag off a few packs. He loved it too. Now, i also felt that i should be cooking good stuff; i scouted via online and came across many easy and healthy breakfast recipes.  Woee..I didn’t realize cooking is so much fun. Yes, honestly I faced difficulties in managing the apt sugar and salt contents, but things kept on going simpler as never before. Now, i can proudly say that i love cooking and can cook a whole different range of stuff as everyone.
