Doctor insights on:
Unlikely: Not much different than walking around the mall. You will be exposed to many with divergent exposures and backgrounds and might pick up a respiratory infection more likely but this could happen anywhere. If working in a soup kitchen, you are doing a good thing and this is helpful to your psyche and to society.
Why do I feel so good after I volunteer at a soup kitchen? I thought it'd be stressful, but I actually feel less stressed.
Service to others: Not everybody likes the holidays. A way of dealing with holiday/family stress is giving to others on your own time, your own way, and your own speed. You do it because you wish to, and not out of a sense of moral obligation, which can have nothing whatsoever to do with actual desire.See 6 more doctor answers
I cooked a soup, then i didn't like it, so i throw it in my trash bag,it was still hot. Did i release chemicals like plastic fume in the kitchen???
Heat w/plastic: can release a tiny amount of chemicals. It is much more of an issue if you drank soup that was heated in a plastic. The cumulative effect of toxins is the real issue. Try to minimize toxic exposure and eat lots of green leafy vegetables to help your body detox naturally. Peace and good health.
Toxins: Shark fin soup, made from the cartilaginous pectoral & dorsal fins of shark, has been in use since at least the ming dynasty in china. It is used medicinally in china to lower cholesterol & to combat cancer & heart disease but it's benefits are controversial. There is a health risk in ingesting shark fins. It is a predator fish with of high levels of bmaa (neurotoxin), arsenic & methylmercury.
Homemade soup: For any foods, seek healthy green vegetables, lean meats such as chicken/turkey, low salt, and low sugars.See 1 more doctor answer
Balanced diet: It is best to eat a varied and balanced diet with fruits, vegetables, meats, carbohydrates, and dairy. If all of those ingredients are contained in your soup and smoothies, that would be fine. Discuss your detailed diet plan with your doctor or dietician.
It's a lot: Lot of sodium for one serving. If u have high blood pressure then it would be unwise. Overall I suggest getting the low sodium products or trying to avoid canned foods. Salt causes pressure to go up as water follows salt so it fills up the blood vessels and puts a strain on them which ultimately places more work on your heart as it's the generator to push blood through the vessels.See 1 more doctor answer
Hydration/nutrition: This is nothing more than a chicken soup. We all know that this cures what ails us! i would not venture any special benefit other than a good way to get fluids, salt, water and nutrition into one self whether healthy or sick. If you like it, no reason not to enjoy. If don't like, go on strike!
Cold remedies: Homemade chicken noodle soup can help to mobilize mucus & has an anti-inflammatory effect. Hydrate well with a small amount of lemon to Chamomile tea. Pour boiling water over thinly sliced ginger. Steep 5 min. in a covered pot. Add 2 to 3 tbs honey & sip. Try Thyme tea. Although some recommend hot toddies for a cold – use of alcohol is discouraged by others.
Nothing: There is no reason to avoid the mushroom soup.
Describe sandwich!: Come on! depends what is in the sandwich! personally why not go for a salad with a balsamic dressing? The real key is to eat enough to not be hungry. Salads and fresh veg you can eat unlimited amounts. Get full. Soup is also a great choice. I do not like the sandwich option because you should probably cut back on the bread!
Unlikely: if you feel nothing in the first 4 hrs of eating you should be fine Get rid of leftovers after 1 week
Feeding baby: It's ok to start legumes between 6-8 months. Make sure it's puréed. Also, remember to always wait 5 days between starting each new food.
Toxic soup: This means that we have contaminated the world we live in. There are many forms of toxins or pollutants around us. One way to combat this is to live as green as possible.
