|Sautéed chorizo and potatoes in spicy tomato sauce|
Breakfast: Boiled egg with wholemeal sourdough toast
Lunch: Sautéed chorizo and potatoes in spicy tomato sauce
Dinner: Pasta and cauliflower in filmjölk sauce
I did something stupid today. There was leftover dinner which I saved to have later in the evening. I put the pot on medium heat and decided to take a 5 minute rest in bed. I woke up to the sweet smell of caramelized onions. I checked the time and realized I had slept for about an hour. The charred smoked pasta and cauliflower in filmjölk sauce had a strong smoky aroma but it was really delicious, I just wished there was more. The last time I smoked my own food was in university when I smoked some sausages, and that was done on purpose. A friend showed me how to smoke using tea leaves and sugar. My recently discovered method is quite simple though it requires some effort in cleaning the burnt stains from the pot. I guess its best to use this method when staying in a motel, or your ex's place.

A natural compound has been discovered which can help increase your strength and stamina, decrease your post-exertion recovery time and decrease soreness after physical activity. Astaxanthin is believed to be the most potent antioxidant nature has to offer. Its other benefits include improving cardiovascular health, stabilizing blood sugar, boosting your immune system, fighting cancer, reducing inflammation, improving eye health and protecting you from sunburn. Sounds too good to be true?
Astaxanthin is a carotenoid and carotenoids are the compounds that give certain foods its vibrant colors such as green grasses, red beets and yellow bell peppers. Astaxanthin is produced only by the microalgae haematoccous pluvialis. There are only two sources of natural astaxanthin—the microalgae that produce it, and the sea creatures that consume the algae (such as salmon, shellfish, and krill). Astaxanthin is what gives salmon the strength and endurance to swim up rivers and waterfalls for days on end.
Astaxanthin is 65 times more powerful than vitamin C, 54 times more powerful than beta-carotene, and 14 times more powerful than vitamin E
Synthetic (laboratory-made) astaxanthin is now commonly used worldwide to supplement fish feeds in order to obtain the desired pinkish to orange-red color. According to the article synthetic astaxanthin should be avoided because it’s made from petrochemicals.
Wild salmon are 400 percent higher in astaxanthin than farmed salmon, and 100 percent of their pigment is natural astaxanthin, rather than synthetic. Plus, wild salmon have much higher levels of omega-3 fatty acids than the farmed version.
So it seems the overall moral of this story is to eat wild salmon. This will give us strength to swim up rivers and waterfalls for days on end.
