“Dishes sans salt deserves to be thrown into the dustbin”
”உப்பில்லாப் பண்டம் குப்பையிலே” goes the Tamil saying!
Saltless or salt less eatable satisfy not the taste buds
If salt is more than what is needed also deserves discard!
Twenty ninth of August today is MORE HERBS, LESS SALT DAY!
Put away the saltshaker and season your meals with herbs instead.
More Herbs, Less Salt Day. Substituting herbs for salt can increase
The flavor and health benefits in our meals.Use turmeric, fresh ginger
And fresh garlic for added flavor and anti-inflammatory benefits.
Fans of savory flavors can add onions and garlic for a bit of kick.
Season your tomatoes, and green beans oregano.
Plus, fresh herbs can make your meal look and smell more appealing.

Great Saint Poet, author of the Tamil magnum opus Thirukkural
Two thousand years ago appealed to the people to shun and
Give up meat eating!
Chapter Twenty Six
BYE TO MEAT EATING
How can be graceful
One who takes animal’s flesh
To keep his flesh fresh! (251)
For the meat eaters
No grace left; wealth of no use
Who cares not but fritters! (252)
The one who takes flesh
Sees not the grace of life great
Killer minds his knife! (253)
4.Non-killing is grace
Killing graceless; eating meat
Sure a sin – disgrace! (254)
Bye to meat! Lives saved!
Hell welcomes the meat eaters
Path to hell well laid! (255)
Killing life for meat
Selling flesh for money – sin
No more flesh to eat! (256)
Flesh – another’s sore
Realized one avoids meat
The world can’t ask for more! (257)
Free from ignorance
Will abstain from meat eating
Meat – another’s life! (258)
Better than penance
Is giving up meat – a life
Killed for our pleasure! (259)
Who abstain from meat
The world salutes with respect
They kill not and greet! (260)
Here we have NATIONAL POULTRY DAY today Nineteenth March
Eggs and turkey bacon for breakfast, an open-faced turkey avocado sandwich for lunch and then perhaps a good, ol’ fashioned fried chicken dinner to finish off the day. Poultry is the theme for March 19th as it is National Poultry Day.

WORLD NO DIET DAY IS TODAY
In God’s creation everything has its uniqueness
Living beings born and die- often enjoy happiness
And also suffer in life in silence and harness

Some are born short, some are tall
Some are black, some are brown
Some are ugly, some are handsome
Some are fat and some are slim!
Funny it is to control diet to become thick or thin
Futile it is to control diet to grow fat or lean
Follow the laws of nature, one can be natural
No need for NO DIET DAY as observed unusual!
Nature gives the food and drinks we need over seasons sure
Fruits and vegetables the body can absorb quite pure
Early to bed and early to raise the law we forget
Eat and sleep, rest and work as we like is not right!
Natural diet all through keeps body and mind in tact
Learn to walk in the morning and have exercise in fact
To body and mind, food and drinks on time with limit right
Sure to make the NO DIET DAY hang its head quite tight!
Their conscience of rights and duties to strengthen
Consumerism all over world to thrive and protect
Humans from exploitation from all sources direct!
This year’s theme is “Anti biotic resistance”-great
Tackling international public health crisis fast
Stop serving meat from animals routinely given
Antibiotics used in human medicine –bad!
Antibiotics more than fifty percent used in
Agriculture that feeds animals and purchased in

Consumers’ resistance to anti biotic- strong!
Important medicines may stop working much sooner
Common infections, minor injuries kill faster!
Time to resist and stop the killer meat in hotels!
Theme of the year to be carried out in earnest!
World Consumer Right Day and its 2016 theme.-Meat with antibiotic medicine
