AFP Mahathir

 

The oldest leader in the world and is still leading a country and who does not seem to tire and never exercise and don’t like fish is Tun Dr. Mahathir Mohammad, the 7th and twice the Prime Minister of Malaysia. He was name one of Fortune’s ’50 World’s Great Leaders’ and just had his 94th birthday on July 10 2019. He writes (chedet.cc) that makes him thoughtful, applied what he writes in life especially in practical politics that what makes him shrewd, witty, accepts drawbacks in what he cannot achieved and has a clear conscience about being a statesman in his home country and of the people in the world internationally.

And one thing Mahathir didn’t share with anybody but countrymen come to know and now a common knowledge i.e. he maintains his stamina by taking everyday Berocca. That is the whole purpose I am writing about him here to recommend to you to take Mahathir’s Berocca for stamina.

2. Gyro Shawarma – Savor The Flavor

shawarma-1564906_960_720

Originating from the Ottoman Empire Turkey in the 18th or 19th century Gyro or Shawarma is doner Kebab. Doner means “rotating grilled meat.” When it was introduced to Greece, the locals named it “gyros,” the Greek word for “turn.” Likewise, when it spread through the Middle East, it was called “shawarma,” an Arabic word for “turning.” When the meat gloriously spins on a cone-shape grill, these names stuck. The gyro or shawarma kebab is served from a large cone that slowly turns and roasts all day, cooking the meat in its own juices.

Nevertheless exercising and taking substitution to sugar to prevent diabetes is incomplete without knowledge of what diabetes is and it’s management when one is affected by it to the extend when one is pregnant.

We are fortunate to have one around us an expert on the subject i.e. Ginger Vieira (pic) who has personally livedand coped with Type 1 diabetes and Celiac disease since 1999, and fibromyalgia since 2014. She has published four bookd to her credit on the subject:

  1. Pregnancy with Type 1 Diabetes” (2017),
  2. Dealing with Diabetes Burnout” (2014),
  3. Emotional Eating with Diabetes” (2012), and
  4. Your Diabetes Science Experiment” (2011).

Managing type 1 diabetes during pregnancy is an incredibly overwhelming yet rewarding pursuit. It’s about so much more than just counting your carbs and getting exercise. Due to constantly increasing hormones during pregnancy, your insulin needs constantly change, too. While no two women’s pregnancies will be alike, the timing of those anticipated insulin adjustments will be similar. In this book, Ginger Vieira and Jennifer Smith, CDE & RD, guide you through preparing for pregnancy, from conception to birth, and through the challenges of managing your blood sugars during postpartum …

Living with diabetes is non-stop, 24 hours a day. Counting carbohydrates at every meal, constantly adjusting medication doses, taking daily injections, pricking fingers multiple times a day, and struggling with the unavoidable challenges of fancy, yet imperfect, technology can lead to burnout. With compassion, knowledge, and humor, Ginger Vieira provides the tools and encouragement needed to help you get back on track and make diabetes management a rewarding priority. She shows you how to:

  • Set yourself up for success with realistic expectations and goals
  • Implement tips and suggestions to help make living with diabetes easier
  • Learn how to back-off on diabetes management without guilt or shame
  • Build confidence in your abilities to face diabetes every day

“Emotional Eating with Diabetes” is an easy-to-read guide to overcoming the many challenges around food that can develop in a life with a disease that revolves around what we eat. This required focus on food can lead to using food in a self-destructive manner to cope with the tremendous emotional and mental burden that comes with managing diabetes. This book will help you build a relationship with food that leaves you feeling proud of your choices, never deprived, and with the knowledge that you are giving your body and your life with diabetes the compassion that you need and deserve….

This is a book for people with Type 1, Type 1.5 and Type 2 diabetes on insulin who want to gain a deeper understanding of how the basic science of the human body impacts your blood sugar levels and your insulin needs. Written by Ginger Vieira, also the author of “Emotional Eating with Diabetes,” a Type 1 diabetic and record-setting competitive powerlifter. “Your Diabetes Science Experiment” will explain the science behind the most common reasons for your “mystery high blood sugars” and “unexpected low blood sugars.” From there, each “Science Experiment” helps you focus on one specific part of your diabetes management at time, so you can make adjustments in your insulin dosing and your nutrition to prevent those unwanted fluctuations in your blood sugar from happening as often! …

Why Wagyu?

The Beef That Melts In The Mouth!

Screen-Shot-2018-05-18-at-4.27.07-PM

Wagyu takes it’s name from the juxtaposition of the terms “gyu” meaning “beef”/“ox”, and “wa” meaning “from Japan”.

chocoalte-fed-wagyuThe Marblous Wagyu Beef is perculiarly Japanese beef, one of the most famous types of beef in the world, particularly the Kobe Beef brand from Japan’s Hyogo prefecture, grown exclusively in Kobe. Hence the name Kobe Beef. A premium food product in and outside of Japan, wagyu beef commands a high price and promises a gourmet dining experience – melting in the mouth!

Of course, Wagyu beef is now grown outside of Japan. One example is at Meadows Farm in Cazenovia, New York, United States. The beef produced however is not acceptable as Kobe Beef but only Kobe-Style wagyu beef.

4e418b3d9c485.image

Wagyu came from four domestic breeds: Japanese Black, Japanese Brown, Japanese Shorthorn, and Japanese Polled from native Japanese cows and were crossed with Western cattle in the early 20th century and then selectively bred over several generations to maximize their organic unsaturated fat.

ca27fe7d-926b-45d4-ac0f-f09175dde9b4

This gives wagyu beef its world-famous marbling, which is high in healthy omega-3 and omega-6 fatty acids that have a sweet rather than greasy taste and some serious umami flavor. In addition to these genetic factors, wagyu cattle are raised with special attention to their environment and feed, resulting in premium beef.

Wagyu Beef Cuts

This Japanese-derived beef, highly prized for its tenderness and taste, is making inroads in America. Beef lovers who think there’s nothing new under the sun probably haven’t heard of Wagyu, its place in cattle history and on the plates of future consumers. America’s Wagyu Trail is a feast for the eyes that should set every reader on a course toward a more literal feast, one featuring Wagyu. America’s Wagyu Trail: The Definitive Guide to the Breed – written by J. Robert Britton and Steve Penhollow. Contributions by Pete Eshelman; recipes by Chef Aaron Butts; foreword by Mark Schatzker.

The folowing wagyu beef images, captured by Hui Jun Ung, hailed from (clockwise) Japan’s Saga, Ohmi, Iga, and Matsusaka perpctures.

Premium-Japanese-Beef

canva-meat,-beef,-kobe-beef,-raw,-vegetables,-food,-japanese-MACZWMbLLf8Tender, marbled Japanese wagyu beef is recognized world-round for its extremely high quality, which must meet stringent industry standards for marble content, smell, color and brightness, texture and firmness of the meat, and quality of the fat. The beef is graded on two scales, one for the amount of meat yielded (from A-class to C-class), and one for the quality of marbled fat (from 1 to 5). The very best wagyu beef is grade A-4 or A-5. Read more here.

Kobe Beef Crazy Rich Food The Shady Truth Are Kobe and Wagyu the same thing?

938fc2a0-08c6-4781-8308-69c3cf1a0a12“One of the biggest misconceptions about Kobe beef is that the name can be used interchangeably with Wagyu beef. Wagyu is a beef that comes from one of four breeds of Japanese cows, but are Wagyu and Kobe actually the same thing? “The answer is yes and no,” Chef Gerald Chin told First We Feast. “All Kobe is Wagyu, but not all Wagyu is Kobe. Wagyu means Japanese beef. You can’t call something Kobe unless it’s certified from the region in Japan.

Kobe beef has a distinct marbling, which means that the meat has webs of fat that easily melt when heated. It is these deposits of fat that make the beef so tender and give it that “melt in your mouth” quality. Kobe beef is so soft that fine cuts of it are even sometimes served raw. The fat in Japanese cattle is so prized that it is a major component of their meat grading criteria. Japan’s Beef Marbling Standard ranges from 1-12, with USDA Prime, which gets America’s top marbling grade, ranking only at about a five on the scale. Kobe beef typically ranks much higher, with marbling levels that are beyond anything in the USDA’s rating system.

The fat levels of Kobe beef might sound unhealthy, but it’s actually the opposite. Kobe beef is filled with unsaturated fats, which have been shown to lower cholesterol levels. Kobe beef is also rich in omega-3 and omega-6 fatty acids, making it among the healthiest red meat that you can consume.”

Kobe’s wagyu is highly valued then the general Japanese wagyu and differentiated from the rest by it’s overtly expensive price.

Caviar of The East – Edible Bird’s Nest

Why Swiftlet Bird’s Nest So Expensive?

Perhaps the most important factor that affects the cost of edible bird’s nest is its rarity. The birds are cave dwellers, and often build their nests within high caverns of limestone karsts, making the process of retrieving them extremely dangerous. Foragers are often people from mountainous areas who do not use modern day climbing equipment, which makes this an extremely high risk job. The harvesting process is also a time consuming one that requires countless hours of manual labor. Read more.

Long considered as the reserve of the Chinese and Southeast Asian wealthy elite, who ate them during lavish banquets, there is an increasing demand from middle-class consumers. Today the global edible birds nest industry is estimated worth $5 billion, most produced in Southeast Asia.

MALAYSIA HALALOn halal, swiftlet nest is as halal as rice as is honey. It takes no religious rite requirement to accredit it halal. But I give preference to suppliers still from Malaysia that come up with Malaysia halal certification.
