A slice of Heaven

“There are people in the world so hungry, that God cannot appear to them except in the form of bread.” Mahatma Gandhi

Who doesn’t love toast of bread?

It’s so simple and quick to make, can easily fulfil the tummy’s morning hunger.

Toasting is the easiest method of making plain bread (which is tasteless) to a palatable one.

Here the bread is browned or darkened by exposure to heat.

Toppings add the extra flavour.

Some suggest baking rather than toasting.

My God! so many terminologies… baking, roasting, boiling, grilling, broiling, heating and frying!

Which do you prefer?


There is some discussion and some controversy about whether it is harmful if we eat burnt toast or even roasted potatoes for that matter any food item prepared with excess heat.

Again there is an intense debate between grilled food vs fried food.

Some suggest Marination is the best solution.

What happens if the food is burnt?

It’s said burnt starch food contains high quantities of ACRYLAMIDE, a highly toxic compound that can cause cancer.

This compound was discovered in burnt food in 2002
Acrylamide questions and answers

Ordinary people like you and I are always confused and under pressure by the contradictory statements by scientists.

Who to believe?

Do you believe the scientists or manufacturers or yourself or your well-wishers?

What is the message?

My friend, you know the principle- ‘Prevention is better than cure’

Other than this nothing you can do since you are helpless!

You adopt a healthy life style (easier said than followed), consuming minimum of these roasted, toasted or fried food items and increase the consumption of fruits, vegetables, lean meat, fish and eggs.
