Fish delivery and more
What a good day today! Today is 12/12/12, December 12th, 2012. I hope something good happens to you.
I received a big tuna again yesterday. I posted it on my blog. It is big eye tuna and stomach side, the weight is 50 lbs. To be honest, this tuna is not the best. The tuna 2 weeks ago was really good. But still have toro and can make Negitoro Don.
Winter season is not easy for tuna supply. I think the supply is getting bad until March. So, I cannot complain about this tuna. Not the best but not bad that I feel.
Uni is not available so far. Our supplier says it will come on Thursday or Friday. The weather in CA was really bad last week as you knew. Rain in CA is bad sign for uni catching. All other fish are same as usual.
My Weight Control
It’s rebound. My weight was 167.4 lbs. yesterday but came back to 170.00 this morning.I ate soba noodle with vegetable last night. And I ate Greek yogurt and a piece of chocolate later night. I am still eating salad for my lunch. But I added chicken yesterday. That was my mistake.
Five Great Health Benefits of Raw AlmondsA better alternative for a quick snack on the go is nuts. Although nuts are calorie dense, they filling so you're less likely to overindulge. When it comes to choosing a nut, one you'll want to consider is raw almonds. Although you can buy them roasted, they're even healthier if you eat them raw. Wild, raw almonds, grown in certain parts of the world contain a glycoside which can be converted into the deadly poison cyanide. To make them non-toxic it's necessary to roast them. Fortunately, domesticated almonds don't have this glycoside and they can be enjoyed without roasting. What are the health benefits of raw almonds?
1,Health Benefits of Raw Almonds: They're high in monounsaturated fatsAlthough fats have been demonized in the past, it's now known that there are good fats and bad fats. The monounsaturated fats found in almonds falls into the former class. These healthy fats have been shown in studies to not only reduce LDL cholesterol, but also lower the risk of heart disease. This is the same "good" fat that makes olive oil such a good choice on a salad.
2,Health Benefits of Raw Almonds: They're rich in flavonoidsFlavonoids are natural antioxidants found in plant species. They not only protect the plant against insects, but help to offset free radical damage in the animals and humans who eat them. Over twenty different flavonoids are found in almonds, primarily concentrated in the skin rather than the meat of the almond. This is one reason why it's healthiest to eat raw, whole almonds, rather than roasted ones.
3,Health Benefits of Raw Almonds: They help to stabilize blood sugarStudies have shown that eating a few almonds with a high glycemic food such as potatoes helps to blunt the spike in blood sugar and insulin that normally occurs after eating carbs. This is good news for diabetics and pre-diabetics who want to keep their blood sugars under better control. Plus, almonds are very low in carbohydrates themselves.
4,Health Benefits of Raw Almonds: They're high in vitamin EAlmonds are an excellent source of the antioxidant vitamin, vitamin E, and are a good source of vitamin B2.
5,Health Benefits of Raw Almonds: They may help with weight lossStudies have shown that people who regularly eat nuts such as almonds have a lower risk of weight gain. It also appears that munching on almonds as a snack can lower unhealthy abdominal body fat and reduce waist circumference. Even though almonds are relatively high in calories, their protein, fiber, and monounsaturated fat content makes them quite filling and satisfying.
Now that you've discovered the health benefits of raw almonds, why not put away those potato chips and enjoy them as your next power snack?
I carry almonds always. It is in my car. I eat at least 20 almonds a day. I recently add walnuts, too.
