When using any seafood or meat you want to be sure to practice simple tips that will help to ensure that your kitchen is free of bacteria. You will want to teach everyone in your family to practice proper food safety to ensure your house stays clear of food-borne illness. One of the easiest ways to do that is to always properly wash your hands. You want to be sure and wash your hands for at least 20 seconds before handling any food and also after handling seafood, meat, poultry, and eggs. You also want to clean and sanitize all countertops, cutting boards and utensils before and after preparing seafood and meat. When it comes to deveining shrimp many people are unsure of exactly what to do. You might try and look at short step by step videos of the process, or you can ask the person behind the seafood counter to remove any shells for you. Deshelling and deveining are easy to do on your own. The vein in a shrimp is not, in fact, a vein, but rather the shrimp's digestive tract. Sometimes the vein will be very prominent, or you may hardly notice it. It all depends on the shrimp. The vein isn't harmful if you accidentally eat one, but rather they are more unsightly and may add some grittiness to the bite of your shrimp. To remove the shrimp vein all you have to do is make a shallow cut along the back of the shrimp and then simply pull out the vein with the tip of a knife. It may sound a bit disgusting and unpleasant at first, but once you do a shrimp or two, you get used to it and can get the job done quite quickly.

This easy, delicious pasta recipe uses a lot of garlic in the recipe which adds to the overall flavor. Garlic is known to be a powerful antioxidant and antimicrobial, with both antiviral and antibiotic properties. When used for colds and flu, garlic may act as a decongestant and expectorant. In garlic, you will find enzymes, vitamin C, and minerals such as sulfur and selenium. But did you that taking a few cloves of raw garlic is also a popular natural remedy? During the cold and flu season, some people swear by eating a spoonful of raw, chopped garlic cloves or eating a fresh garlic clove as a natural remedy. Crushing fresh garlic by either mincing or chopping it or by chewing on a clove with your teeth causes a chemical reaction to take place that releases allicin. The allicin found in garlic is a powerful antibacterial that is only present just after the garlic has been crushed and only before it is heated. So eating some fresh garlic in its raw form may help with getting rid of some of the symptoms associated with the onset of a cold or flu.
