    Bittergourd or Bittermelon even though, its bitterness can save a lot or can prevent diabetes.

    The bitter gourd is called Bittermelon used for cooking, or drink as a tea, in many Asian countries. In Philippines it is called “ampalaya” or “parya.” It’s good to explore cooking styles with the gourd. The bittermelon has been known for healing wounds; and also, to dissipate and cure diabetes…👍🏼

    Filipinos cook it with other vegetables like green long beans, okra, eggplant, kabocha squash, with roasted ginger, garlic, tomatoes, and onions—in cooking style of vegetable stew, a.k.a. ”Pinákbët” or “Päkbét.” But be careful when stirring the bitter melon in with other vegetables—the more you stir it, the bitter it gets! **

    **Before cooking the bittermelon, soak it in salty water or brine for at least 5-10 minutes, and then rinse it well. Precooking bittermelon without the other veggies, before adding the bittermelon to the stew, will eliminate the bitter taste.

    My mother parboils ampalaya until tender, flavors it with a pinch kosher or sea salt; and/or adds a dripping (less than a heap of teaspoon) of soy sauce or fish sauce to enhance the taste. And then, mixing with egg to cook it as Ampalaya Omelette…tastes great with Banana Ketchup*

    Try cooking bittermelon as stir-fry with browned meats such as: ground-beef; or chopped/ground-poultry (chicken thighs or ground turkey); or, ground-pork or diced-pork butt or chopped tenderloin—flavored with soy sauce; or hoisin sauce, or oyster or fish sauce; or teriyaki sauce—and sauté with roasted garlic and onions, and tomato (optional).

    I know that feeling. Military life is for young sprites.. Mid 30's now and my knees are toast.. But what you loose in physical resilience you end up gaining in mental resilience. Now working in the Automation engineering field I'm often tasked with 'impossible' tasks, things nobody has ever done before, and seem completely hopeless and you want to give up. I've found that if you stick to it.. remind yourself "I'm not dead yet, work the problem", You just break the problem down into smaller and smaller bites until you can manage a bite, then the next and the next. This pattern of thinking has helped me advance a lot, conquer insurmountable odds.

    I broke my back as a teenager and it had plagued me all my life. In 2015 I had it fused which lessened the pain but made it difficult to bend. I am 60 now and had virtually givenup on gardening until last year I got 4 raised gardens made. I had an unused corrugated iron water tank which I got cut in half horizontally and the other two are oblong made with corrugated iron I had lying around. I love them. One of the big round ones I use for Kumera. I used the huglekultur method which really worked well for me because I had a huge hedge being taken out so used some if that in the bottom of each garden. I also have a bathtub worm farm sitting up on pallets so I don't have to bend too much for that either 😃🖒💖

    instead of bending over, PRACTICE SQUATTING. humans have been growing and harvesting from the ground for millions of years

    Most of my health problems come from the chemicals in the Sad American Diet. Started with wheat, then corn and now the last year and a half it's no sugar. I'm 64 and I'm doing so well I feel like I'm 40. Maybe younger. Wish I looked 40 but I can't have everything. I eat grass fed beef now with cooked cruciferous veggys, have my own chickens and eggs and grow almost everything. I'm in Florida, USA, similar temps with you. Love your show thank you.

    Gardening not only is great exercise (stretching and upper body workout) but mentally it is rewarding as well. I get allot accomplished in my head when i'm working in my garden. I'm going to build myself some of those raised beds as well! I'm a nurse who is just about to retire with a bad back and I don't see me giving up my gardening for that!
    Your inspiring, thank you.

    Sorry I missed this one! Raised beds are great; my daughter''s friend made me one about 4 feet tall with a large pallet and my spuds, beets, herbs, spinach, etc. are doing great. Long term will have to get something that lasts, but am sold on the system; it's much less painful than ground level. I'm a worn 64 yr. old grandma. Belated birthday greetings to you, your lovely wife, and family! Lovely table spread too; thanks for sharing! Blessings!🙏😊💖👵grandma in WA state☔🌱

    Soak the bitter gourd slices in water with salt. It will remove the bitterness
