    Chicken and Okra. Your mouth, she is watering yes?


    As far as I know, I have no gastronomic nemesis - yes, that includes Bulls testicles (true story), I’m however ambivalent about okra; no matter how meltingly cooked, I can taste only soggy string. This ambivalence recently turned into distrust when a Nigerian male acquaintance told me that Okra opens up a person’s spirit making them easy to influence – negatively or positively, depending on the intentions of the person serving it up.

    Can anyone confirm whether this is true? I know of its other effects but not this one.

    I think in this sense the particular foods doesn't apply across the board.
    If 'Okra opens up a person’s spirit making them easy to influence ' It could be the medicine that a person needs and on the down side it might be the thing keeping a person stagnate in their growth.
    And from my objective perspective. Have you recalled okra having that affect on you?

    The few times you agreed with one of the non-christians here .......
    think......
    maybe it was just the okra?:10500:
    Sry my attempt to generate a lil laughter

    But in no way a dis to the matter at hand presented to us by our Goddess Alexander cause I will be paying closer attention to the foods across the board I intake and on how it affects me in general.

    :peace:

    Brother hiphopolox,

    Lol, the laughter attempt actually worked and was much needed. Thanks for having impeccable timing, for real. Only you would have thought to rib me in that manner and can get away with it, lol... Peace In my brother friend.

    Living Foods are closer to

    what is spiritually sound than dead animal flesh!

    I like the picture, however I prefer my okra breaded and fried in olive oil or safflower oil.

    that sounds good!

    My Mother, (e.g. may she rest in peace) was from the Carolinas where frying is the answer to hunger!

    That sounds like a Louisiana dish. Reminds me of home, yeh, cher...

    That is interesting because okra is a staple for Black folks just like African people on the continent. Where ya'll think the term "soul food" came from?

    I hope okra is not spiritually unsafe because it is my absolute favorite vegetable. I must eat okra at least twice a week if not more often that. I'll eat it anyway you can cook it LOL
