The overall nutritional quality score associated with these eight restaurants, 48, fell below that of the average American diet in general, 55, which the USDA considers far from optimal.
Fish is also an excellent source of lean protein that is low in saturated fat and cholesterol. In general, a cooked serving of fish provides about 20g protein (about one third of the average recommended daily intake for an adult), less than 160 calories and less than 100mg cholesterol.
Fish is also a good source of all types of vitamin B, as well as vitamins A and D. Fish provides iodine (mainly in saltwater fish), iron and calcium (found in the edible bones of canned sardine and salmon) too.
I use Numbers 7 and 8 when riding my bike to stretch out my leg muscles. You can read about them in detail at Two good stretches for cyclists.
It just so happens that gardening with all the stooping, squatting, lifting, walking and carrying stuff around in the sun is great for your bone health because the sunlight provides bone building vitamin D. and the rest of the movements support the process of building stronger bones.
In addition to the spinning sensation, symptoms of vertigo include feelings of nausea, vomiting, sweating, difficulty standing, feeling unbalanced, headache, ringing in the ears or hearing loss, and abnormal or jerking eye movements.
On a recent trip to Costco, I happened upon the Energy Blend snack. As I shop there regularly and have never seen this before, I have to believe it is new to Costco. Since I ride my bike as close to daily as is possible in a four season city like Chicago, i am always on the lookout for fresh and portable sources of energy to take with me on rides.
The Energy Blend seems to fill the bill. It has a simple composition of edamame (soybeans) , cranberries, almonds and pumpkin seeds. In addition there are blueberry pomegranate juice and natural strawberry flavor. These are some very good sources of nutrition on their own so the combination looks promising.
At this point, I have only had a single serving of it which comes to 1/4 cup or 30 grams – about an ounce.
I enjoyed eating it. Very nice taste and texture.
The nutritional breakdown is as follows:
Total Fat 6 grams
Saturated fat 0.5 grams
No trans fat
Sodium 65 mg
Total Carbohydrates 14 grams
Fiber 4 grams
Protein 7 grams
This seems a very good nutritional breakdown to me. There is fat for energy, not too many calories, enough sodium to restore salt sweated away, a good slug of fiber and protein. I think it is worth the try.
Let me know what you think.
