Taka Update


Taka Update December 19, 2012

Fish delivery and more
We received good tuna yesterday. It was big eye tuna, stomach side, 52 lbs. The condition was better than last week’s one. Uni was sold well yesterday and I ordered for today. This supply is not bad.
Nisin, Herring will be the last supply for this week delivery. I will switch to Kasago, Rock fish. I tested it last week. The meat is white and lean, had nice texture but not chewy.

Closing Information
We will be closed from December 23rd to 25th. I am not going to anywhere this time.

 My Weight Control
This is good rebound. My weight was 176.6lbs this morning. I still eat fruits for breakfast, salad for lunch, salad and something for dinner.

I added Japanese sweet potato for my lunch. I just steam and eat with no sugar. Sweet potato nutrition is great as brown rice. Read below.
Calorie and fat-- -According to the USDA Agricultural Research Service Nutrient Data Laboratory, an average-sized raw Japanese sweet potato, approximately five inches long and weighing 130g -- contains about 113 calories. None of these calories are provided by fat. Sweet potatoes contain no fat, saturated fat or cholesterol.

Carbohydrates--- Japanese sweet potatocontain approximately 27g of carbohydrates. This carbohydrate value comes from three sources: dietary fiber, sugars and starch. Japanese sweet potatoes contain approximately 4g of dietary fiber, for about 12 percent of the daily recommended requirement for dietary fiber in a healthy diet, according to the World's Healthiest Foods site. The 5g of sugars in Japanese sweet potatoes are predominantly sucrose and glucose, with a small amount of fructose. The USDA site reports that the potatoes contain about 17g of starch.

Protein--- Japanese sweet potatoes provide approximately 2g of protein. While trace amounts of all essential amino acids are present, the potatoes contain the compounds threonine, leucine, phenylalanine, valine, alanine and serine in the largest amounts. 
Vitamins--- Japanese sweet potatoes are a rich source of a variety of vitamins essential for optimum health, including vitamins A, C, E and B6. According to the USDA, Japanese sweet potatoes contain 11,062mcg of the beta-carotene form of vitamin A, for 202.2 percent of daily recommended intake of vitamin A. One average-sized sweet potato provides nearly 30 percent of the requirement for vitamin C and about 12 percent of the vitamin B6 requirement. These vitamins are thought to act as powerful antioxidants, preventing cellular damage from free radicals in the body. Because Japanese sweet potatoes are so high in vitamins, they're often recommended as an essential part of a healthy diet.
Minerals--- Potassium, calcium, sodium, phosphorus, manganese, copper, iron and magnesium are all minerals that Japanese sweet potatoes contain in large amounts. With 438mg of potassium in every average-sized potato, Japanese sweet potatoes provide 10 percent of the daily magnesium requirement. They provide 25 percent of the daily need for manganese, about 12 percent of the copper requirement and 39mg of calcium.

It is good for diet, that’s why I eat this every lunch. I think we only can buy this at Asian grocery stores. How to eat? Do not peel skin, wash it and just steam it about 15- 20 minutes. You can also boil it. And just eat straight, no wasabi no soy sauce. You can bake it, too. It is good with sugar or butter, but don’t try, just eat straight. It is sweet enough. Have a great holiday. TAKA

This is sweet potato with sugar, do not try.
