Astrology, humbug or science? Even if you don’t believe in fortune telling, everyone has read some sort of daily horoscope before, it is fun and entertaining; sometimes it totally relates to one’s personal situation. Some go further and say that the Zodiac Sign not only determines your character, success in work and relationships but also your food preferences and which foods are beneficial or harmful for your well being.

Hellofood takes your wellbeing very seriously and conducted a research together with central and eastern European psychologists on specifics of different star signs and their relationship with eating habits.

Aries

They are brave and honest and often considered as insensitive people, but this does not apply to their food preferences. You cannot go wrong with Aries if you raise the topic of good wine and dishes. They favor foods in red, green and everything spicy.

Aries eat: brown rice, bananas, fruit juices, olives, tomatoes, onions, lettuce, cucumbers, spinach, beans, lentils, walnuts, figs, garlic and mustard. Foods to avoid: salt and alcohol.

Taurus

The Taurus is steady, stubborn, passionate and disciplined. People of this sign have a passion for luxury. They prefer the best foods that can be found in stores and restaurants, like risotto with black truffles, oysters, and lobster served with champagne.

Taurus eat: blueberries, asparagus, beefs, cauliflower, cucumbers, spinach, onions, radishes, and squash. Foods to avoid: rich and heavy foods and excessive amounts of carbohydrates.

Gemini

People under this star sign are fearless, creative, fun and sometimes large rebels. They love travelling and new experiences. They love all foods in yellow, green, orange, and even more the exotic cuisine – Moroccan and Caribbean.

The Gemini eats: Plums, oranges, grapefruit, grape juice, raisins, apples, lettuce, spinach, carrots, and celery. Things to avoid: coffee and root vegetables such as potatoes.

Cancer

Cancer is one of the most sensitive and emotional zodiac sign. They like to feel protected and prefer domesticity. They prefer the light flavors and creamy texture. French cuisine is best for them, especially prepared at home.

Cancers eat whole grain rye, rice, oats, fruits, bananas, steamed vegetables, broccoli, cabbage, cauliflower, tomatoes, beets, squash, cucumbers, beans and natural sugars. They should avoid fatty foods, salt, sweet and refined sugar.

Leo

The lion is one of the strongest signs of zodiac. They like to command and keep things in theirown hands. They can be extremely arrogant, but extremely fun. Thanks to their ruling planet, Sun, they prefer fiery colors – orange, yellow, red. Adequate food is mish-mash or spicy chicken with lots of paprika. They eat whole grains, rice, citrus fruits, apples, potatoes, carrots and radishes. They should avoid dairy products.

Virgo

Virgo are analytical, practical perfectionists and may be critical. They weigh the pros and cons very carefully before any decision. The representatives of the zodiac sign Virgo are the best cooks. However, they do not like to experiment and rely on well-known foods.

They eat whole grains and cereals, oats, fruit salads, fruit juices, lemon juice, soups, teas and almonds. They should avoid severe food and chocolate.

Libra

People born under this zodiac are intelligent and creative. They are fans of love and dreams. You can get away from the world and live in his fantasy. They prefer red wine, cheese and spicy foods. They eat apples, grapes, strawberries, raisins, steamed vegetables, spinach, tomatoes, cheese, nuts and almonds. They should avoid hard alcohol and carbonated drinks.

Scorpio

Scorpios have great passion, energy and intensity. They have extremely strong personalities. They have a special relationship with the food they eat. The food must be non-traditional and made with love. What would catch them is squid in a dark sauce, cheese with blueberry jam and chocolate soufflé.

They like to eat coconut, cauliflower, onions, radishes, tomatoes, asparagus, cucumbers, beets and seafood. They should avoid fatty foods, salt, sweet and refined sugar.

Sagittarius

Managed by the fire of this sign, they are modest, idealistic and eager for new experiences. Their adventurous nature allows them to enjoy travel and thus to try new flavors of Indian or Japanese cuisine.Duck, foie gras and sushi are their preferred foods.

They eat cereals, pears, apples, oranges, strawberries, olives, duck meat and garlic. They should avoid spicy foods and sweets.

Capricorn

Capricorns are stable, practical and profound. These creative beings are often attracted to theater and music. They never experiment in the kitchen. They have a set of 5 dishes that they consume and can prepare.

They eat rice, vegetables, spices, cabbage, corn, soups, teas, nuts, figs, eggs and flaxseed. They avoid rich and heavy foods, dairy products and chocolate.

Aquarius

This is the friendliest, sensitive, gentle and abstract character of the zodiac signs. They are found in any party because they are flexible and prefer social gatherings to being at home.

Aquarians prefer a menu with different textures, colors and blends. Their ideal diet consists of seasonal vegetables, ham, blue cheese and olives.

They like to eat apples, oranges, pears, steamed vegetables, corn, carrots, tomatoes, nuts, dates, ginger, and protein bars. They should avoid refined Sugar.

Pisces

People of this sign are flexible, adaptive, but sometimes mystical. They are in a high spiritual level. They eat only once a day. They like herbs, well-decorated seafood and cheesecake for dessert.

They prefer eating wheat, whole grains, rice, oats, seaweed, beans, dates, and natural sugars. They should avoid coffee, fatty foods, sour foods, and asparagus, salt and sweet.

Tribert Rujugiro Ayabatwa’s Corporate Social Responsibility Are Paying Off in Northern Uganda

Published

on

Find out information about Coronavirus in Uganda. More here.

Tribert Rujugiro Ayabatwa’s approach to corporate social responsibility (CSR) in Northern Uganda continues to empower communities to uplift themselves. Ayabatwa’s CSR in this case is based on food security, income-generation, afforestation and access to clean water. 

1. FOOD SECURITY 

Ayabatwa’s company based in Northern Uganda established the Arua Organic Agricultural Centre (AOAC) which demonstrates to communities best practices in food production. 

Crucially, AOAC teaches farmers continuous farming even where rains are scarce. Solar-powered irrigation is now operational, which permits the growing of over 15 different food crops.

A key aspect is to keep these crops well mulched helping the soil to retain more moisture, keeping the temperature low and increasing the soil fertility.

Overall, encouraging and supporting farmers not only to improve food security but also to generate incomes is central. For example, a small farm can produce more than required to sustain a family. By adopting good agricultural practices farmers produce excess food thereby helping to improve Uganda’s food security.

2. INCOME-GENERATION

Farmers are continuously sensitized to expand their income portfolio and not depend only on cash crops. These are several initiatives in this regard. In the case of bee-keeping, 9 apiaries were installed in all regions where farmers learn best practices in bee-keeping. Second, farmers are assisted to grow their own mini forests. A small forest can produce enough wood for domestic consumption and provide extra income every year by selling construction material and charcoal.

3. AFFORESTATION 

In the area of afforestation, 2.4 tree seedlings per year are given to farmers free of charge. Farmers are taught that tree planting goes together with cash crop growing. Tobacco. Native tree species and fruit trees are supplied to the farming communities. 

4. PROVIDING CLEAN WATER SOURCES TO COMMUNITIES

Shallow wells are constructed for communities – providing clean water access to over 15,000 people in the Arua region. This also ensures that children don’t travel long distances to fetch water from rivers thereby undermining their education and their future. 

Tribert Rujugiro Ayabatwa and his companies remain fully committed to the CSR path they have practiced over the years, namely, giving a hand to local communities as they lift themselves from poverty.

Mr. Eazi thrills fans at album listening party

By Our Reporter

On a Friday like this one, many of us would be gearing up for some great weekend fun. At the strike of 5pm, we would shut down our computers as we make those phone calls, send messages, drop pins so our buddies can join us, party hard, and later flood our social media timelines with ‘the weekend that was” photos of us having the time of our lives, letting off some steam after a long week on the grind.

However, that is not the case today as we have all taken a step back into our homes to wait for the world to heal. But who says we can’t have fun at home? We can do several things to help calm our raving waves of boredom as we stay home and stay safe. And yes! Music, like they say, heals the soul! It even gets better if you are an MTN TIDAL user!

The Tidal team at MTN, together with both local and international artistes have put together the most entertaining and groovy music playlists to keep you entertained while at home. On the Tidal app, you will find more lockdown playlists than you can consume. And the best part is there is something for everyone! And there is a play list for any mood; Partying, working, exercising, meditation, children’s music and of course the most amazing praise and worship music.

So while we keep indoors, let us live a little and turn up the music with TIDAL!

In case you didn’t get the memo, it is Friday. So feel the weekend set in as it should be. Get ready to unwind and kick off the “work” stress you could have gotten from the work days at home. Grab your favorite drink (thankfully we can order these) and sit back, chill and connect your phone to your speaker as you get the latest dance party playlists off tidal that will help with setting the mood. Don’t get shy to dance like you would if you were on a night out with the girls or the boys. Let’s look at the bright side, this time round, you won’t have to worry what time to order the Uber or how you get home. Absolutely no stress!

Stay home, but don’t forget to stay fit and in shape with TIDAL.

We wouldn’t want you to return to office after this lockdown out of shape simply because all you did was eat, sleep and eat some more. For long many have said work outs not only help in keeping the body fit and in shape rather can also be used as a stress reliever. It is no secret that workouts and music go hand in hand like bread and butter. Let Tidal’s invigorating work out playlists get you breaking a sweat as you whip yourself into shape. The world is waiting to meet your new hot body!

What is Sunday without some Inspirational music form TIDAL?

Your answer is as good as mine. Just another ordinary day. So make yours count by ending the week on a good soothing happy note. Close the week and start the new week in a good emotional place by streaming the best inspirational and gospel playlists from Tidal. So don’t miss out. Plug in and get spirit filled as you sing along in adoration of God as we pray and continue to intercede having faith that our creator will heal the world and rid us of this pandemic.

If you already have the app, just dial *165*66# and get a subscription of your choice and get grooving already. If you are street smart like me, then you already know that the subscription that comes with streaming data is the best! Go have a blast.

Thank God Its Friday!

CoronaVirus Uganda

Africans retreat into homes on coronavirus, but scared about food

Published

Find out information about Coronavirus in Uganda. More here.

By Staff Writer

More than two-thirds of over 4,500 Africans reached by GeoPoll across 12 nations have reported they are self-quarantining to prevent the risks and spread of coronavirus.

Yet, as Africans retreat into their homes, they are worried about food and their economies to almost as great a degree as they are worried about the global pandemic.

In a survey administered remotely through GeoPoll’s mobile-based research platform, it was found that 80 per cent of respondents were frightened about coronavirus spreading in their countries, but 71 per cent said they were also ‘very concerned’ about its economic impact.

The degree of health fears in each nation appeared related to the level of quarantine now in place. For while 63 per cent of Africans believe they are at risk of contracting the virus, Rwandans judge themselves to be at the lowest risk, at 37 per cent, in a situation where 90 per cent have self-quarantined.

Conversely, in countries such as Mozambique and Zambia, which report lower rates of self-quarantining, citizens feel far more vulnerable, with over 80 per cent in each of these countries believing they and their families are at risk.

Such fears across nations with limited ICU capacity and often scant supplies of oxygen has wrought other changes of behavior, with 54 per cent of respondents increasing hygiene and hand washing, and 50 per cent avoiding public places.

There are also rising concerns over food supplies. Most of the Africans polled reported that they were shopping for food less often, while just 20 per cent reported that all food markets around them are currently operational. Additionally, more than 85 per cent of respondents in the DRC, Rwanda and Kenya have worried in the last seven days that they would not have enough to eat.

“A health crisis such as coronavirus hitting vulnerable populations can have devastating effects on development, food supplies and resources. Reliable data is needed to accurately track on-the-ground situations, and using our remote mobile methodologies GeoPoll was able to gather valuable information quickly and safely,” said Nicholas Becker, GeoPoll CEO.

“Some governments in Africa have been proactive about lockdowns in order to prevent the virus from quickly spreading through densely populated areas, but coronavirus is already present in many African nations, and this study shows there is a fear that the worst is yet to come.”

There is a growing concern that many nations in Africa are poorly prepared for a pandemic as easily transmissible as COVID-19. This has triggered widely different approaches and very different levels of public support. In Rwanda, 81 per cent of respondents believe their government has done enough to stop the spread of the virus, as do 60 per cent in Uganda, but in Zambia, Nigeria and Kenya, less than a third are confident enough has been done.

Cover your nose and mouth with a disposable tissue or flexed elbow when you cough or sneeze

Avoid close contact (1 meter or 3 feet) with people who are unwell
