#TGIF RECIPE: TAKING IT AWAY WITH NKWOBI(OIL & PEPPER SPICED GOAT MEAT) & 4 UNITS OF RED WINE TONIGHT!!

👀: Anonymous

After a tough week of expending mental and physical energy at work and on Lagos roads, "THANK GOD IT IS FRIDAY"! I don't know about you but I am surely taking it away with a pot of oil and pepper spiced goat meat -a recipe locally referred to as "NKWOBI" in Nigeria-as depicted in the image above and I am not going to hesitate washing this down with appropriately recommended units of red wine.

Now you are surprised and asking why a Medical Doctor should talk about drinking alcohol in a Health Blog. Let's not deceive ourselves. Some people already drink and are not planning to stop tomorrow but permit me to use this opportunity to introduce you to the fact that, medical science allows a RECOMMENDED QUANTITY of alcohol intake for men and women per week; for those who feel they must drink that is. This quantity is measured in Units and most recent guidelines reveal that "14" is the golden number per a week, a large glass of red wine half full or small bottle of beer, measuring about 2 units. If you are a pregnant woman or living with conditions like liver disease, stay away entirely. Now I repeat myself. If you drink excessively, you are on your own. IT IS DANGEROUS TO YOUR HEALTH!

  1. Please, is there a more definite unit of measurement (example, millilitre, centilitre, litre, or fluid ounce) for the volume of alcohol that constitutes one unit? I ask because when you say big glass or small glass, trust me, people have their own definitions of big and small.

  2. Lool @ people's own definition of glasses. Doctors, you do work hard but love the good life as well.
