Jewish penicillin: This soup is the cure for what ails you

jewish penicillin: this soup is the cure for what ails you

BEGIN ARTICLE PREVIEW:

Mom got her chicken soup recipe from her mom. It’s a simple, brothy affair with lots of dill, the kind of soup that’s popular throughout the Yiddish diaspora, often referred to half-jokingly as Jewish Penicillin, because it always makes you feel better, no matter what ails you.Yiddish is the native tongue of the Ashkenazi Jews of Eastern Europe, is based mostly on German but also contains Russian and Slavic words and a Hebrew alphabet. It’s a culture as much as a language, with its own traditions, recipes, and history of struggle of a community that has always been more a state of mind than a nation with borders. Throughout our tumultuous history, chicken soup with dill remained a constant.Mom, her mom and their foremothers have all helped carry the torch forward to this point, all but assuring it will continue into the next generation as my kids are fans of chicken dill soup. But there is one aspect of this tradition that won’t continue: the step where you put a raw chicken into a pot of water. The idea of boiling a raw chicken bothers me the way boiled hot dogs do.

BEGIN ARTICLE PREVIEW:

You’ve heard about PPE (personal protective equipment), but have you considered PPL or PPN?A personal protective lifestyle (PPL) and nutrition (PPN) could be your key to resiliency in the face of COVID-19. The Uniformed Services University’s Consortium for Health and Military Performance (CHAMP) is working with a new task force within the Military Health System to spread the word about Total Force Fitness solutions for our military community members to stay strong during the pandemic.
The task force formed with the gathering of like-minded individuals who all understood that lifestyle-related chronic diseases such as diabetes, high blood pressure, and cardiovascular diseases could be factors that would create further complications to COVID-19. Together, they want to enhance the resilience of military personnel and families, and raise awareness about other crucial ways to protect yourself and others through nutrition and lifestyle.
“Not only has COVID-19 increased the urgency of addressing our nation’s epidemics of chronic disease and obesity,” says Army Capt.

Ricky Codio

Imagine being exceptional at everything you try your hand at – and then receiving news that would change your life and the ways in which you have to do things forever. For Zakia Blain, founder and CEO of FBF Body, a highly sought out shapewear and lifestyle brand, there is no need to imagine. This became her reality when she was diagnosed with Chiari Malformation at 30-years-old after working in Corporate America and as an educator before pivoting into entrepreneurship.
As defined by Johns Hopkins Medicine, Chiari Malformation is, “A problem in which a part of the brain (the cerebellum) at the back of the skull bulges through a normal opening in the skull where it joins the spinal canal. This puts pressure on parts of the brain and spinal cord and can cause mild to severe symptoms.”
Blain’s diagnosis changed her lifestyle.
After being told by doctors that she could no longer workout and after experiencing weight gain, Blain decided to begin her wellness journey. One day while on a walk, Blain’s friend uttered, “F—k being fat.” Inspired by those words, she took them and printed …
