Goan Delights


Reading Marguerite’s blog and seeing her description of the grass there which reminded me of Goa, I decided on this grey, chilly, wet Sunday to bring out some sunshine and so took a look at my photo’s from Goa. Our trip to the Spice Farm was interesting and enlightening. Being into the natural way of things I liked hearing what each of the plants and spices have in the way of medicinal or health-giving properties. Some I was aware of, others not. I learnt that curry leaves help diabetes, which with the history of that in my family was of interest. I later found out that an Indian friend of ours in the UK eats curry leaves every day as part of his usual diet, and his diabetes has always stayed ‘under control’. Interesting! More interesting is the fact that he didn’t know of the connection, he was just eating his traditional food!
Need another holiday now to replace the spices I bought back with me! Shame…LOL!
