Taka Update January 23,  2013

Fish delivery and more
Tuna supply is same as last week. I sell Hawaiian tuna only. It’s just like goes back to normal winter situation. Tuna is hard to get in winter.
All other fishes are fine.  There is no problem except flounder. Flounder normally comes from northeast. But this winter like weather kills fishermen. It is too cold to catch fish, maybe. On the other hand, uni is good, west coast weather is better now.
 

Study finds that eating fruits and vegetables improves optimism
Everyone knows that the regular consumption of organic fruits and vegetables leads to superior health, but a new study conducted by scientists at the Harvard School of Public Health has discovered yet another reason to favor a diet of natural foods - individuals who consume antioxidant-rich fruits and vegetables on a regular basis are also more optimistic about the future.
The study assessed the blood concentrations of nine antioxidants - including carotenoids, which are a class of antioxidants mostly found in orange-colored produce - in 1,000 male and female participants between the ages of 25 and 74. During the assessment, the participants completed a questionnaire about their attitudes on life.
The scientists found that the most optimistic participants each had up to a 13 percent increase in blood concentrations of carotenoids compared to those who were less optimistic. Moreover, the scientists also found that the participants who consumed fewer than three servings of fruits and vegetables per day were considerably less optimistic than those who consumed more than three servings per day.
"Individuals with greater optimism tended to have greater levels of carotenoids such as beta-carotene," said the study's lead investigator, Julia Boehm. "This is the first study of its kind to report a relationship between optimism and healthier levels of carotenoid concentrations."


Avocado is super food.
First, disregard everything negative you may have read or heard about avocados. Avocados are so nutritious that many consider them superfoods. Forget the stuff about fats and calories.
Calories are irrelevant if they're nutritionally packed. It's nutritionally empty calories that lead to obesity. Avocados contain good fats that are necessary for building nervous system and brain tissue and curbing cardiovascular tissue inflammation that leads to clogged arteries.
Good fats include Omega-3 fatty acids that health conscious folks scramble to acquire from fish oils and flax seeds. There are plenty of Omega-3s in an avocado. There's also an abundance of oleic acid for Omega-6 fatty acids, which if unprocessed and not out of balance with Omega-3s support heart health. Cold pressed pure olive oil is an oleic acid provider also.
There's also a considerable amount of protein in an avocado. It's provided in a bundle of all the amino acids needed for complete proteins. This means your pancreas doesn't need to work so hard providing enzymes appropriate for digesting meat whole proteins instead of seeking and destroying cancer cells.
Avocados also provide several carotenoids and flavonoids, such as beta-carotene, alpha-carotene, lutein, lycopene, zeaxanthin and others. They all promote heart and eye health as well as protect you from neuro-degenerative diseases. You'll also get a healthy dose of natural vitamin E and magnesium.
