R voulnteers in soup kitchens gonna get sick?

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.

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.

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.

Is it bad to eat soup that has 540 mg of sodium?

Is it bad to eat soup that has 540 mg of sodium?

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.

Is it healthy to add okra and broccoli to a diet soup?

I will say yes : Okra is high in fiber, vit c, folate (folic acid) and antioxidants. In the caribbean island is use for soups. Like the jambo from curaçao. Broccoli is a cabbage with a lot of fiber, vit c and antioxidants too. No of the above will increase the caloric intake on soups.

What is healthier, full sandwich or half sand and clear soup? Im on a diet.

What is healthier, full sandwich or half sand and clear soup? Im on a diet.

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!
