I've now tried raw fish in two ways: ceviche (marinated in citrus
juices, which "cook" it with the citrus acids rather than with heat)
and cold-smoked, which is another technically raw way of preparing fish
without heat. I learned that fish is sometimes cured before smoking, so
I have to make sure it wasn't cured in sugar. Curing is supposed to be
provide extra protection against microbes. I have to say I like smoked
fish better than my homemade ceviche, but I'm a newbie at making
ceviche, so I'm not giving up. I still need to figure out how long to
marinate, what herbs and spices to use, and which types of fish respond
best to this type of preparation. The tilapia I tried was a bit chewy,
so I might have done something wrong. Next I'm trying cod.
felt so good about my dietary change that I was motivated to look
further into healthy sea foods. Readers have recommended that I try
dulse, so today I read up about it. The info on the back of the dulse
package alone cheered me up, but let me quote Wikipedia for you, which
pretty much provides the same info: "Dulse is a good source of dietary
requirements. A handful will provide more than 100% of the daily amount
of Vitamin B6, 66% of Vitamin B12, a day's supply of iron and fluoride,
and it is relatively low in sodium and high in potassium." This is
great not only for me, but for Felicia, who needs extra B12 and iron
due to her gastric bypass surgery.
So I'm feeling pretty good
tonight, having had some smoked salmon sushi, a bottle of kombucha tea,
and performed some deep breathing exercises. I'm going to try to ease
back into meditation. I'm very bad at it- if my mind isn't racing a
mile a minute, I'm falling asleep!
An update on HAIRWATCH: I
can say with near certainty that my hair has been falling out rather
than ceasing to grow altogether. I can tell because my hair is growing
long. In fact, I almost want to say that it is growing quickly, but I
don't want to be too optimistic! Despite the fact that it is growing in
length, however, it is still thin around the temples and top -meaning I
can see my scalp easily in those areas. I feel heartened that my hair
is growing in length; I guess it is an indicator of something positive.
