Use ketchup to make tomato juice

Postby starter » Mon Jul 09, 2012 12:20 am

Hi friends, just to share with you my new recipe for home-made tomato juice. I was a bit hungry in my office in the evening and happened to find a package of ketchup. So a new adventure: add some water to ketchup and mix well -- it tastes exactly like the tomato juice on the market!

Hi Starter,

I wouldn't recommend it unless one was starving!
There are better tasting and much healthier options whether you wanted a pre-made tomato juice or wanted to make your own from scratch.
kind regards,

Ben

Hi Ben,

Thanks for your kind advice. I read that the major disadvantages of ketchup are sugar and salt (and probably some preservatives), which might not be a problem for a slim person with relatively low blood pressure if consuming at a moderate amount. I'd like to share with you and other friends some advantages of ketchup:

http://www.positivehealth.com/article/h ... lthy-heart

By the way, I was wondering if the meals in the forest monasteries provide enough salt (especially those having only one meal per day) and probably too much sweets (e.g. deserts, chocolates, ...). If our website (and probably also the monasteries) provides more information on healthy diet, the food offered to the monastics might become more healthy ...

Metta to all,

Starter

It might be more nutritious prepared thusly:

1. Fill mug with water.
2. Carefully open ketchup packet.
3. Hurl ketchup packet with great force in any direction.
4. Drink.

Note: Step 2 is optional.
"Even if you've read the whole Canon and can remember lots of teachings; even if you can explain them in poignant ways, with lots of people to respect you; even if you build a lot of monastery buildings, or can explain inconstancy, stress, and not-self in the most detailed fashion ... The only thing that serves your own true purpose is release from suffering.

"And you'll be able to gain release from suffering only when you know the one mind."

Hi, strter,
'Enough' salt is far, far less than most westerners use in their cooking, let alone the excesses of junk food. In fact, if we ate only natural, local foods and didn't leach out their own salt by boiling them to death, we would get enough salt. After all, that's how we ate before industrialisation.
For more on salt, try http://www.dailymail.co.uk/health/article-98813/Have-got-salt-diet.html and http://www.cdc.gov/Features/VitalSigns/Sodium/.

Greetings!

Today I ran out of fruit juice, so I used ketchup to make tomato juice again. To warm my body up in the cold weather, I added some Shurfine hot sauce into the tomato juice. It's really tasty! I recommend this hot tomato juice to those friends who enjoy hot and sour soup. Give it a try!

Did you also know that Tabasco is a wonderful exfoliant? A few drops mixed with lime peel will really perk up your face.

I live in America, where the vast majority of ketchup contains high fructose corn syrup made from genetically modified corn, amongst other concerning ingredients. I would highly reccomend eating only whole foods for health, perhaps just blending some organic tomatoes, sea salt and local, raw honey would do the trick?

I heartily recommend NOT running out of fruit juice.
