Take some Salmon.
This is a frozen fillet. Skin on one side.
Marinated overnight in Balsamic Vinegar,
Celtic Sea Salt, onion and garlic powder,
And cayenne pepper. My usual spice rub.
Put it in the food dehydrator...
This took only about 2 hours!
Might be a great alternative to cooking them in oils.
Or baking them. Or breading them.
It turned out great!!
Nice and flaky.
The temp of the dehydrator never got above 160
Which is great for the Omega 3 fatty acids.
They don't like the heat. Changes them.
Maybe add some of my Orange-flavoured Cranberries -
Also dehydrated... overnight!
But yeah - this is awesome!
I intend to make more of this!
Cook alot - they tend to shrink as they dry out.
True confession time.
I have only had salmon a handful of times in my life.
How I ever lived this long - is anyone's guess.
My diet was so limited.
I never got the Omega 3's except by hit-or-miss.
Mostly miss. Sadly.
Now I am trying to increase them in my diet...
Even focus on them.
So for like the next "so many days"
[like a challenge, but without the implied doubt]
I want to have my full "dose" of Omega 3
PUFA - PolyUnsaturated Fatty Acids (link)
And then see how I feel.
Did it make a difference?
Will I be better off for having done it?
Maybe get some blood work done then.
My old labs from a few months ago are here. (link)
I show a pic of myself often. Some might say TOO often.
I don't have a scale. Threw it out.
So the pics tell the real story of my progress on LoCarb.
Or lack thereof.
That's what is "up" with all the fish.
"FEESH," as some people say.
I am not a Piscitarian.
Some people do well on that.
If they aren't afraid to have the occasional steak!
The Omega 3's are essential in that we can't make them.
They have to be ingested.
Here's a link if you wish to see how much PUFA's
are in the food you eat every day: (link)
Omega 3's are not meant to be the only fat we eat.
But the body uses all kinds of fats.
Medium Chain Triglycerides.
MUFA's - MonoUnsaturated Fatty Acids.
And YES - even Saturated Fats.
Butter. Eggs. Meat.
Maybe watch out for the man-made fats.
The trans- fats.
Somethings convert well.
Somethings - not so well.
And all this hoopla about fat and carbs and protein and diet -
It's not just for weight-loss.
Just for Health.
