Once the different parts of the human body became very cross with the stomach. They thought it had a too good time, lying there quietly in the middle of the body, having nothing else to do but enjoying all the good things, brought to it by the others.
The hands did no longer want to bring food to the mouth, and the mouth did not want to receive it, and the teeth did no longer want to chew the food. And the feet meant, that they would no longer be at service by carrying the stomach back and forth. They were all very displeased with the constant toiting and moiting to please the stomach. It would be better if everyone minded their own business, and then you would see, how the useless stomach would manage on its own.
What became the result ? When the feet did not want to walk, the hands not work, the mouth not eat and the teeth not chew, the body started to decline.
Then all of them realised that the stomach had its work to do too. It did not only receive food, but also delivered nutricion to all the parts of the body. So, they all reconciled with the stomach. They all served each other again, and soon they were as hale and hearty as before.
Well, this was only an old fairy tale.
When my children were small and had a poor appetite, or when they were sick, I used to give them this nutricious orange juice drink.
1. Whisk together egg yolk and sugar until smooth.
2. Stir in orange juice.
3. Add milk, whisk until it is foamy.
