Stay Healthy in Back to School Season

Hi! Guys,

Summer is almost over. Some children have already started school. For some parents, it is a time of relief if their children go back to school, but not to those taking online classes.

Many kids are excited, including mine, to see their friends again after so many months of trapping inside the house.

No matter what your situation is, I hope that you will enjoy this nice weather.

Staying Healthy

Who doesn’t like fall? The weather is cool and comfortable. If you live in the north country, you can enjoy the beauty of the fall foliage.

However, it is also the peak time when many people get sick.

There are 2 natural and cheap ingredients you can stick with during this time to keep your immune system strong.

A slice of lemon or a pinch of ginger powder added in your drink would be good enough.

Fun Culture

What's Ginger in Chinese?

What you see here is the traditional Chinese writing of "Ginger". It is pronounced as "jiang" in Mandarin; "gaung" in Cantonese.

Chinese has a saying, “The older the ginger, the spicier it is.” It is for describing some people being strategic or diplomatic.

Yes, Chinese literally put ginger in everything, such as stir-fry, soup and even dessert. Fresh ginger is even used for pain relief, too.

Here is one interesting story that I witnessed when I was a teenager. 2 of my younger sisters wanted to have ear piercings. Back then, it referred to having earrings. So, how did they get theirs done?

My parents took us to the real jewelry store, purchased a set of real gold earrings for each. The store keeper used 2 pieces of ginger, one on top and the other at the bottom of an earlobe, rubbing back and forth until the earlobe turned red. Keep the bottom piece of ginger in place as a cushion. Then, the earring went right in. Other than the angry red color after rubbing by 2 pieces of ginger so much, there was no pain; no blood. Repeat the same step with the other ear. (Please don’t try this at home.)

Featuring Recipe

Vegetable Loaded Cajun Chicken Soup

Since our theme this month is about keeping our immune system strong, nothing is better than chicken soup. I love the traditional chicken soup which I don’t mind to take some time to cook it. But if I am in a hurry, this Kale Chicken Soup will do. Get Recipe

Product I Recommend

One Pot for Everything

I love to have a big soup pot. Anything can hold 6 quart or more is great. The nice thing about Cast Iron Soup Pot is that, it can keep hot food warm for a long duration even it leaves the heat source. Plus, you can put the entire pot, lid and all, into an oven. It can be used in many different ways. Buy It Now

Be Safe and Healthy

Some schools do open for campus learning after so many months of shutdown.

I want to end this month's newsletter with this Biblical quote from 3 John 1:2, "Beloved, I pray that all may go well with you and that you may be in good health, as it goes well with your soul." Stay Healthy!
