Supposedly it is.. "the poor man's food" - because during the war, families were so poor, they would eat first the meat off the bone, the first day, (cooked of course) then the next days they would boil the bones and add whatever vegetables they had, and fill their stomachs and their children with it... and each day, they would add more and more water, until there was so transparent, it was like water.
How I see it: boiled water= killed all germs from the water, "sanitized" veggies= flavor released and not destroy all the nutrients meat - if any, but not always
If hydrates you, fills you up without feeling "heavy", and you are eating your veggies. :)
Unless you want to use a replacement then go that route. but it looks much better one of these:
I grew up with CHORBA, every lunch time, SOUP, or I didn't feel I ate that day. :P
It was a culture shock, somewhat, to learn that in the US, lunch is usually a sandwich.. but, "when in Rome..."
make your own lunch. And that is SOUP!
I don't have to be sick to eat chicken soup! I am rather: If I don't eat soup at lunch, I'll get sick.
Now, this is a Documentary. I've been told to watch 100 docs before I start on my own one... That is OUTRAGEOUS, but doable. Or, take a Doc class. Well, more of "me" later, here is more about the project. :P
I've met some awesome people and heard even more life stories. I can't wait to share them with the world. I initially had a "due date" but that has been pushed back and still going :) I am no longer putting stress on that date. I am going along with the situations and doors that open towards making this a documentary that will make a difference in the world.
If after the film is seen and people are talking about it, I already won. I want the public, to take away from it something. Having the doctors better trained to diagnose it quicker is my ultimate goal. So raising awareness is just a step towards it.
