Last Friday, my husband suffer from diarrhea, body pains and stomach cramps after eating a sandwich bought from a sandwich food store. He brought me a club house sandwich from that store but thankfully I didn’t experience that. He is alright now but I was thinking what made him sick. I was listening to the radio today and I have learned that he might ate one of the riskiest foods that caused illness. It may lead to a minor as stomach cramps and diarrhea for a day or two, or as serious as a kidney failure or death.

After that incident, I realized that it is still best and safe to prepare foods at home. It is better to act now than be sorry. When we prepare meals at home, we are sure that it is clean, safe, low cost and more delicious because it is done with love. Surely, your family will appreciate and love you more.
