Monday’s tip ‘Do not cook excess food’ is a useful health-related tip, so is the additional info which reads as a part of tweet, “Do not leave leftovers outside at room temperature for more than two hours.”
The rationale is that once cooked food is left outside, it develops microbes and becomes unfit for consumption.
Those who leave food outside also need to be aware that cooked food needs to be either refrigerated or it has to be kept so that it remains as hot as it was when cooked.
Remember, store cooked food should be reheated thoroughly before consumption so as to destroy any disease-causing microbes or germs, which may have contaminated the food during any stage of procurement, preparation or distribution.
In the critically acclaimed book “Gut” by Giulia Enders, she established that stress changes the weather in the gut. There is considerable evidence presented in the book to demonstrate how signals from the gut can reach different parts of the brain, but they can’t reach everywhere.
