New insights......about Ginger, read with a smile!

What has ginger got to do with the LWF Week of Meetings?

Nothing of course but we had a very healthy tea made of hibiscus and ginger, that started a casual conversation while we served ourselves. I was told that that in Africa ginger is considered as an aphrodisiac. I was astonished at this revelation because in Asia ginger is used in home remedies in various ways! If we cook any non-vegetarian food, we always smother it with ginger and garlic paste, which kills any germs in the meat, tenderizes it and enhances the overall taste and health of the consumer! Of course I have not verified the potency of ginger scientifically but since Asia uses a lot of ginger, may be it explains why Asia is so populous!

Whatever, people like me who should walk around with less weight to carry, consider organic food as a lucky escape from yielding to all the lovely temptations we get served during the week of meetings every year!
Congratulations again organizing team, for making us health conscious, though I do not know how the strictly non-vegetarian colleagues felt about this!!
