Photo credit: demerarawaves.comBRIDGETOWN, Barbados — “Cut back on table salt!” That’s the message from a Barbadian chef and entrepreneur who wants Caribbean people to abstain from over-consuming salty foods following reports of tragic life-altering strokes and other serious medical conditions.Chef Derek Went of Went Caribbean, a company that offers healthy Caribbean lifestyle support, said while the Caribbean region is known worldwide for its culinary exploits and some of the most flavour-filled foods, the region was playing “Russian Roulette” with its food preparation and consumption habits.Went Caribbean is keenly focused on reducing the high incidence of chronic, non-communicable diseases by offering a variety of products and services which promote a healthy lifestyle.“I am all for maintaining the diverse culinary traditions of the Caribbean, but let’s make sure we do so without compromising good health,” Went asserted, proposing a switch from table salt to moderate amounts of sea salt as a healthier alternative.The Caribbean chef promotes sodium-free, healthy spices and herbs in Barbados, across the Caribbean, and soon to the Caribbean Diaspora communities in North America. In addition to avoiding excessive quantities of salt present in today’s over-consumed processed foods, he also urged drinking pure water, checking blood pressure, daily exercise and other dietary habits — as recommended by medical doctors and qualified nutritionists — which were key to a healthier Caribbean and an economically sustainable health care system.Went Caribbean, supported by the Barbados Entrepreneurs Venture Capital Fund (known as BIM Ventures), promotes its WentWorx line of all natural, aromatic seasoning blends that contain no salt, no sugar, no MSG and no artificial preservatives. “You can definitely reduce the salt in your meals without sacrificing authentic Caribbean flavour when you use WentWorx blends,” he emphasized.WentWorx products currently contain naturally occurring sodium in health sustaining proportions.Caribbean News Now Share Food & DiningLifestyle Reduce salt intake, says Barbados chef by: – September 19, 2011last_img read more

first_imgA popular local priest has revealed how he literally fell into becoming a member of the RNLI.Fr Liam Boyle is the latest member of the lifeboat service based on Arranmore Island.Fr Boyle, who is originally from Fanad, had never been at sea before until curiosity took him to inspect the Arranmore lifeboat at the local pier several months ago. “I literally went over to have a look at the boat. I almost fell down the steps of the pier and the lads showed me around the boat.“I joked about becoming a member and the lads said “why not?” I thought nothing more of it then but as the months passed I thought a little more about it and decided to undertake the training.“And now I am a full volunteer and ready to answer emergency calls,” revealed Fr Boyle.To date the curate has been out on four emergency calls as part of the dedicated 21 member lifeboat crew based in the island who are all kitted with emergency pagers. He has missed a number of calls due not to responding as quickly as other responders as is the case.Fr Boyle with fellow RNLI crew members on Arranmore.The last which Fr Boyle took part in was to a stricken yacht belonging to a Canadian couple which had gone aground off the coast of Donegal a few weeks back.Thankfully Fr Boyle and his fellow crew members, assisted by the Rescue 118 helicopter and the Killybegs lifeguard, managed to lead the couple to safety.“It a real rush of adrenalin to be woken by your emergency beeper at 4.15am and to take to rough seas and not to return home until 10am the following morning.“Thankfully it ended well and everyone returned home safely in the end,” he said. Fr Boyle said he had absolutely no seafaring experience before he became curious about becoming a member of the RNLI on the island.In fact, the only time he had been on water was on a paddling lake “in a tub” in the nearby lake in Dunlewey.He says that people understand that his duties are to his parishioners on the island first and foremost but he also recognises the responsibility he now has to the RNLI.On the boat he says his fellow lifeboat crew members do not give him any special treatment and he is not always referred to as Fr Boyle. “They sometimes call me different names than that but I can’t repeat those,” he laughed.Fr Boyle says due to his vocation he does not know where his future postings will take him but he is looking forward to the immediate future on the island among its 550 strong population and fulfilling his role as a member of the RNLI.Popular priest finds his ‘sea legs’ with challenging RNLI role was last modified: November 9th, 2016 by StephenShare this:Click to share on Facebook (Opens in new window)Click to share on Twitter (Opens in new window)Click to share on LinkedIn (Opens in new window)Click to share on Reddit (Opens in new window)Click to share on Pocket (Opens in new window)Click to share on Telegram (Opens in new window)Click to share on WhatsApp (Opens in new window)Click to share on Skype (Opens in new window)Click to print (Opens in new window)last_img read more
