Food Quotes

"No therapy or drug known to modern medical science can rebuild tissue that has been damaged by disease or trauma. Food alone can accomplish this feat. It is for this reason that nutrition is an indispensable weapon against disease".

Blog Nog

Here's a good and simple recipe for eggnog. It does use raw eggs - the healthiest way to eat them. If you are hesitant to use raw eggs because of food borne illness, you should know that the only pathogens (illness-causing bacteria) that can be found with eggs is always on the shell of the egg (never inside).

If you clean the outside of the egg with an efficient pathogen-killing cleaner, then there is no way you can contract salmonella or any other food borne illness. I keep one spray bottle filled with full-strength hydrogen peroxide and another with full-strength white vinegar. To clean the outside of an egg, spray first with eitherthe vinegar or peroxide and then spray again with the other solution. Wipe with a clean paper towel and use as directed in the recipe below:

  1. Hey Sharon,
    Great blog! I will be bookmarking it.
    I just wanted to point out that eggs bought from the store have been washed and no longer contain the protective covering called the bloom. Since the bloom no longer protects the egg and bacteria can get into the egg. This also probably means contamination is happening after the eggs have been washed. First it will contaminate the whites and then the yoke. Store bought eggs are often stored for long periods of time and sometimes through the delivery and stocking are not kept at proper temperatures. Salmonella bacteria breeds in warmth so by the time we bring the eggs home they could contain a lot of bacteria if the there was carelessness in handling the eggs prior to purchasing.
    Farm fresh eggs are less likely to have salmonella because of the conditions in which the chickens are kept but also because of freshness.
    I am not an egg expert but I have done my research on this years ago when there was another salmonella scare.
    I will have to try this recipe. It sounds yummy :)


Your ideas and input are valuable to me. I would love to hear from you!
