Fish delivery and moreI do not think eating sushi or sashimi during July 4th Holiday is not good idea. Fish delivery is limited and I don’t open for business. BBQ is the best bet for this weekend.
I ordered Fish Omakase for next Tuesday delivery. We will see it. Everything is go back to normal after Monday.
Sushiandpassion Book is coming in 2-3 months.My first book is coming in 2-3 months. I just signed the contract with a company in CA. It’s going to be Sushi Bible for sushi lovers. It features my honest opinions a lot. I can say 80% is done and need to edit nicely and some make up. I just sent a disk which has many pictures. But I have to take more pictures.
Sake Tasting on July 18th

The Foods that Play a Factor in Deep Sleep
A recently published study out of the University of Pennsylvania isolated a few key nutrients and total caloric intake as contributing factors for length and duration of sleep. They also looked at the role that overall diet, demographics, socioeconomics, physical activity, and obesity, to rule out other potential causes.
‘In general, we know that those who report between seven to eight hours of sleep each night are most likely to experience better overall health and well being, so we simply asked the question “Are there differences in the diet of those who report shorter sleep, longer sleep, or standard sleep patterns?” ‘ said Dr. Michael A. Grandner Instructor in Psychiatry and member of the Center for Sleep and Circadian Neurobiology at Penn.
The results were interesting, and somewhat counter-intuitive.
The group who ate the most (i.e. highest caloric intake), slept the least.
Normal sleepers consumed the greatest variety of food.
Statistical analyses, showed that dietary differences were driven by just a few key nutrients. Very short sleep (less than five hours) seemed to correspond to less of an intake in tap water, lycopene, and total carbohydrates.
Short sleep (five to six hours) was linked to less vitamin C, tap water, selenium (found in nuts, meat, and shellfish) and more lutein/zeaxanthin (found in green, leafy vegetables),
Long sleep was associated with less ingestion of theobromine (present in chocolate and tea), dodecanoic acid (a saturated fat), choline (in eggs and fatty meats), total carbohydrates, and more alcohol.
‘Overall, people who sleep seven to eight hours each night differ in terms of their diet, compared to people who sleep less or more. We also found that short and long sleep are associated with lower food variety,’ said Grandner.
