So Good Or No Good: Raw Fish, Anybody?
Welcome to this week's edition of the Funny Community weekly game - "SO GOOD OR NO GOOD"! At the beginning of every week, I post to ask your opinion on various things that a lot of people either strongly love or strongly hate, and then share the full community results! Last week I asked you how you felt about tartar sauce! Out of the 69 users who voted either way, tartar sauce was decided to be 'SO GOOD' by 44 voters. That means TARTAR SAUCE IS SO GOOD!!!!!!! (Shout-out to Team Salmon Burgers!) This week's game goes back to the subject of Japanese food. I've already asked you what your opinion on wasabi is (SO GOOD!), but now I want to know how you feel about raw fish. Do you dare order the spicy tuna roll or the salmon sashimi? Or do you stick to California rolls where it's safe? Is raw fish SO good or NO good? Raw fish is enjoyed in a number of countries - including Italy, Peru, Spain, and the Netherlands, but it's most famously served as Japan's sushi! And despite the fact that, you know, eating raw fish could result in acquiring parasites and/or mercury poisoning... It remains an extremely popular food all around the world! What do YOU think of foods like sashimi, ceviche, and carpaccio? Do you think raw seafood is SO GOOD or NO GOOD? Debate, debate, debate! @InPlainSight @jazziejazz @AimeeH @fallendendenjr @DianaCastaneda @RachelParker @GingerMJones @DenieceSuit @JuliaLynea @ButterflyBlu @KiKi29 @amobigbang @AluSparklez @jannatd93 @Ash2424701 @VixenViVi @JPBenedetto @XergaB20 @DanaNikole89 @JustinaNguyen @Priscillasdoor @melifluosmelodi @zwdodds @Animaniafreak @MattK95 @oniya @rcuero @KellyOConnor @KaraHevner @tashamarie22 @MaighdlinS @BeannachtOraibh @TerrecaRiley @WiviDemol @Taijiotter @animechild51 @MechelleLesane @RainaC3 @RavenQueen0810 @ChildOfSparda13 @babylynch @wonyeop316 @RiggaFoster @CelestHarbin @BluBear07 @ckienitz @shantalcamara @jiggzy19 @cthulu @ElizabethT @hyolouxx @maddiemoozer @StephanieStrawn @lovelikematoi @VeronicaArtino @chris98vamg @jltobar07 @LeonidLunar @JaxomB @MissB82 @Ragnorak @JessicaChaney @thetaz12 @Danse @TylerOrtega @iixel @ZoilaObregon @KingOfHearts @BTSARMYGIRL @IamSasha @frisk @Baekyeol27 @arnelli @TracyLynnn @rodiziketan @yashiracruz @LindsayCollier @TerraToyaSi @Inaritricx @KennedyCasey @KaityBliss @SarahCatherine @LenaBlackRose @fierywolf @Taigara @WatsonNotHolmes @TomHawthorne @BurningRed @petname83 @electica @armyauntie @keithhernandezj @psadkisson @BiancaMason @misssukyi @Luci546 @TurtleyTurtles @TylerCassalata @litwitjohn @nenegrint14 @MikeWolf @kvnguyen @MajahnNelson @matildajgarrett @BrookeStam @DawanaMason @TheDumDumTroll @CelinaGonzalez @NoxasExcrome @mommaG @ZwankimaWalker @onlyxmortal @Cereal03 @AnnieCanavas @drea4u @Ticasensei @VanessaAcosta @cheerfulcallie @ShakirBishop @EasternShell @ReynaWithLove @RosaArgueta @KDramaKPop1015 @seouls @sbeh @atmi @liakadir @JasmineWilliams @CandaceJordan @CPTdonut @Meeshell @Astrohelix @AlexAckerman @LAVONYORK @JosiTorres @fatimajj23 @MissT615 @JenelleEspinoza @MarvelTrashcan @shill317 @thekreviewer @ReadAnimateSwim @gabbycalzada @KrystalStar22 @hhead232 @wakleyjj @JasonLSR @IMNII @MaggieHolm @Heartofgold35 @RaquelArredondo @KiinLyr @Romana
Want to Get Fit? Here Are the Most Expensive and the Cheapest Sources of Protein
Getting fit is a common goal for many people, but achieving it often proves to be quite hard. Although regular exercise, calorie deficits and eating a lot of protein are three of the most important rules to get fit, sticking to a strict diet and exercise regimen can test one's willpower very much. Further, since high-quality gyms can sometimes cost a couple of thousand rupees or more per month, a fitness plan can be fairly expensive. Saving on a gym membership could be straightforward, as one can simply choose to work out at home, outside or switch to budget-friendly facilities, which can cost under Rs. 1,000 per month. Regarding protein consumption, many online articles only highlight foods which have "high levels of protein" irrespective of their cost. So, to help people find the most financially-friendly sources of protein, we analysed the most popular ones in terms of their cost per 100 grams of protein. Meat, Fish, Yogurt and Certain Cheeses Are Expensive As one would expect, certain sources of protein are significantly more expensive than others. As an example, greek yogurt has gotten quite popular recently as a healthy food. In fact, it's a good source of protein, calcium and probiotics. It also helps one feel full for a relatively small amount of calories. But, it's actually a fairly expensive source of protein, costing more than Rs. 500 per 100 grams of protein. For instance, a 90g container of low-fat Epigamia Greek Yogurt costs Rs. 40 on BigBasket. This product contains approximately 7.4 grams of protein, netting an effective cost of Rs. 541 per 100 grams of protein. Above all, we found swiss cheese to be incredibly expensive for the protein one gets out of it. Steak and fish are very expensive too. These tend to be higher in fat and calories, so they may be better to avoid if one is also dieting. Not All Seeds and Grains Are Made Equal Seeds and grains such as almonds or quinoa are often a part of suggested diet food lists. However, such foods tend to vary dramatically in price. We found hemp seeds and almonds cost around Rs. 500 - 700 per 100 grams of protein, while chickpeas and oats cost under Rs. 200 for the same amount of this muscle-building nutrient. If one wants to maximise the amount of protein while minimising cost, pick specific nuts with care and go for something like sunflower seeds rather than almonds. Surprising Winners Most of the winners on this list are pretty obvious: tofu, chicken breast and eggs have commonly been known to be some of the most popular effective protein sources that also help you feel full. So, it's not a surprise that they are some of the cheaper options. One of the items on the winner list was somewhat surprising: peanut butter. It only costs Rs. 167 for 100 grams of protein. However, peanut butter is relatively high in fat and sugar, so it shouldn't be heavily relied on for building lean muscle mass and reducing belly fat. Staying Healthy Physically & Financially If one wants to get into better physical shape, it requires a deliberate commitment to change one's lifestyle, increasing the frequency and intensity of one's workouts while also strictly regimenting one's diet. Just pumping out sets at the gym won't provide the desired results if one isn't following a well-structured exercise routine and using proper form. It's also important to control one's diet properly so that one consumes a wide variety of nutrients. Worrying solely about protein and calories can be counterproductive and cause ailments. Focusing on certain financial aspects related to getting into better physical shape will make the whole process easier on one's bank account. For example, as we have done here, researching the most cost-effective sources of protein can help one efficiently build muscles while also helping one save money. There are several other aspects related to one's health that could potentially result in cost savings, too. For instance, one could use a rewards credit card to pay for gym memberships or groceries, which could offset the total economic cost. Further, it's possible one may be overpaying for health insurance if one simply took the advice of a salesperson without researching other viable options. Properly researching different endeavours in life will help one focus on what is most important and effective, while weeding out sources of inefficiencies that impede reaching your goals.

3 Super Salads to Power You Through the Week
Are you dreading it's only Tuesday? I'm feeling the same. I barely recovered from a bad cold and my body is lacking energy. I know that because my digestive system has been a weird lately. Which is why I'm sharing three super salads to help you (and me) power through the week! Spicy Shrimp & Avocado Salad Staring at the photo alone already brighten my appetite. This green salad is filled with vitamin and good fats. Grilled some shrimp on a pan, chop up some spinach, baby kale and cucumbers, toss in a few cubes of avocado and you're done! Lime juice is sufficient for me but if you like more flavor. The original recipe uses a miso dressing. To make the dressing simple combine 1-inch peel ginger, 3 tablespoons lime juice, 1 1/2 tablespoon white miso and 1/2 teaspoon minced garlic and 1/4 teaspoon salt. Adapted from: Pinch of Yum Fresh Spring Salad with Poached Cod Here's a nice salad to kick start your spring and to bring balance to your tummy. I know eating fish is healthy for me but I hardly eat them. I could only do two bites of raw salmon and I'm done. To get a little omega-3 in my diet poached cod doesn't sound like a horrible idea (I'm horrible with the skillet anyways). Just make sure you don't overcook it. 5-6 minutes in boiling water is sufficient! Take it out and plate it on a salad with parsley, beets, radishes, spring onions, pea shoots and parsley. For the dressing - 2 tbsp rapeseed oil or olive oil, 1/2 tbsp white balsamic vinegara, squeeze of lemon, sea salt to taste. Adapted from: Dagmar's Kitchen Edamame and Radish Salad I promise this is the simplest super salad ever. Boil a cup of edamame and toss it diced onions (or shallots) and radishes. All you need for the dressing is - 2 tablespoons vinegar, a pinch of salt and a pinch of sugar (no more than 1/8 teaspoon). Just before tossing everything together add 2 tablespoons of olive oil.

Wine- History and Preparation
Natural wine is ancient, and therefore the latest trend. What makes a wine โ€œnaturalโ€? When Jenny Lefcourt captive to Paris within the Nineteen to check French literature and cinema, she and her friends started drinking a very exciting style of wine. This wine tasted โ€œtotally different, and alive, and delicious,โ€ she remembers. They found it in an exceedingly few bars, and later stumbled into a tasting of it hosted at a vicinity edifice. Now natural wine has become a word form of bourgeois style in sure social circles and on sure menus across the world. Itโ€™s become a supply of indie social capital, with wine labels that are as feverishly followed and obsessed over as album covers within the โ€™80s. However what makes a wine โ€œnaturalโ€ isnโ€™t forever clear to customers who are additional accustomed to the under-$10 section at merchant. And it became the topic of heated dialogue within the wine world, with natural wine purists declaring it in virtue and thrilling style, and traditionalists criticizing the perceived flaws and even its idealism. But whereas natural wine is recently fashionable, it's not new: folks are creating hard fruit crush while not additives for thousands of years. (The history of sulfites complicates this; some folks believe that sulfites in one type or another were accustomed preserve wine as early because the eighth century before Christ.) โ€œPeople assume that natural wine may be a cult or a replacement issue, however itโ€™s the standard thanks to build wine,โ€ explains Krista Scruggs, a wine maker and farmer based mostly in American state and Texas. โ€œItโ€™s typical wine thatโ€™s truly new.โ€ Hereโ€™s what natural wine is, however we have a tendency to captive off from โ€” and back to โ€” it, and wherever itโ€™s heading next. What it is Natural wine is additional of an inspiration than a well-defined class with agreed-upon characteristics. In its purest type, wine made of pure hard fruit crush โ€œPEOPLE assume THAT NATURAL WINE may be a cult OR a replacement issue, however itโ€™s the standard thanks to yarra valley restaurants. They serve typical WINE thatโ€™s truly new. Many people โ€” winemakers, distributors, writers, โ€” disagree with the term โ€œnatural wine.โ€ Some like the phrase โ€œlow-interventionโ€ wine, or โ€œnakedโ€ wine, or โ€œrawโ€ wine. Scruggs calls her product โ€œjust fucking hard juice.โ€ however โ€œnatural wineโ€ is that the term that's most generally used, and anyone at a natural-inclined wine store, wine bar, or edifice can understand what you mean once you use it. For the aim of this text, Iโ€™m operating beneath the idea that natural wine isnโ€™t a fraud, nor is its supporterโ€™s neurotic, however rather that itโ€™s an extremely debated and endlessly difficult topic that ne'er ceases to urge all manner of individuals irritated up. Also, the things are extremely usually delicious. Understanding natural wine needs a basic understanding of the trade method. Within the simplest terms, that method has 2 parts: growing and selecting grapes, and so turning them into wine through fermentation. Natural wine, then, is formed from grapes not sprayed with pesticides or herbicides. Natural winemakers handpick their grapes rather than hoping on machines to reap them. Once it involves turning those handpicked grapes into juice, natural winemakers have faith in native yeast, the things thatโ€™s whizzing around within the air and can land on grapes if you set them in an exceedingly vat for long enough, to line off natural fermentation. And in contrast to most typical winemakers, they donโ€™t use any additives (like pretend oak flavor, pretend vanilla flavor, sugar, acid, egg white, etc.) within the trade method. Occasionally, some natural winemakers can add some sulfites, a preservative and stabilizer that winemakers are victimization longer than the other additive. Sulfites make sure that the wine you drink tastes roughly identical because it did once it went into the bottle. Natural winemakers either use no supplementary sulfites or use it in little quantities, whereas typical winemakers dissipate to ten times the maximum amount. They conjointly use it differently: typical winemakers add sulfites to grapes to exterminate natural yeasts, and so add additional throughout the remainder of the trade process; natural winemakers can add a bit simply before bottling. The purest of the pure โ€” naturally hard fruit crush with no sulfites. So, from the above blog we can guess that you have some ideas about the ancient history and preparation of wines.
