I rarely eat fish, have some "albacore" tuna, Kirkland branded from Costco, haven't opened a can for maybe 6 months. Was thinking about it last week, tuna sandwiches.Just read about Oceana study in 2013. The are an ocean preservation think tank and did a research study on what species of fish is actually being sold.
I do a little calisthenics at home and have never belonged to a gym or felt comfortable, welcome there.
I have a very old fashioned pressure cooker, the thing has actual wooden handles! It's missing the top-cock, so I fashioned one from a large, long, heavy socket and some black rubber. Seems to keep enough pressure in there to cook stuff pretty quickly. It is aluminum, which I suppose is a concern, however I don't use it that much. I use it to make stew and sometimes cook beans.Insta-pot will being beans from dry to cooked in less than 2 hours!
I used to buy soybeans and make tempeh back around 1980. Got quite good at it. It's high complete protein and IIRC soy tempeh is the only good vegetarian source of B12. Indonesians are really into tempeh, particularly soybean tempeh. Making it in my kitchen was kind of a science project, but I've done much tougher projects in my kitchen. I developed a simple enough system that was efficient and reliable, based on info I got from a book I bought, The Book of Tempeh. I really recommend that book.
I'm eating a salad almost every day these days, pretty much the same one but I like it. A tablespoon or less of thousand island dressing on it, that I make myself from mayo, Heinz ketchup and sweet pickle relish, plus:I also used to have soya chunks salad during my weight loss days.
My goal back around then was lose 30lb. I have lost 25 and figure another 25 would get me where I want to be. I never dreamed I was 50lb above where I wanted to be back in May. I've held steady where I am for almost 4 months (since early August), so kind of in a holding pattern, but that's progress because I used to lose my commitment. I still have it, I just don't have the same edge I had that had me losing weight pretty much steadily. With colder weather settling in it's harder, but I'm still maintaining my weight.Started my journey back in May, have now lost a bit over 50 lbs , at the start i was so out of shape that any hard walking would leave me out of breath, just did a little bit more every few weeks, would start with 15 minutes on treadmill at max incline 3x a day, eventually 2x 30min . I'm now up to 4.5km's a day with some good elevation inclines , just need to get rid of maybe another 5lbs to be where i want to be.
I've just started mixing in a bit of running (i hate walking downhill it hurts my legs) , maybe about 1km now.
