Caviar is a SUPERFOOD!

Salmon roe is here. There are many names for caviar from fish eggs to roe. Some of you guys might have gone to a sushi restaurant and seen ikura, masago or 2b go on the menu, but caviar is technically supposed to be from wild beluga sturgeon in the Caspian Sea. Now caviar is used as a general term for any salted fish eggs. What they do is they take the egg sac out of the fish.

They separate the eggs from the membrane they lightly salt them, and then they either put it in jars or cans. Freeze, it refrigerate it whatever caviar might just be the healthiest food on the planet. Just like liver, it contains all of the vitamins, minerals, elements and fatty acids. Our bodies need, in their most bioavailable form the animal form. The nutrients in certain plant foods require conversion in the body, whereas the nutrients from animal foods are directly absorbed.

The main discrepancy between liver and fish eggs is that liver has a substantially higher vitamin A retinol content and fish eggs have much higher omega-3 fatty acids. Epa and DHA. The DHA in fish eggs is actually in the phospholipid form, which is said to pass through the brain, much easier and be absorbed better, but that’s never actually been proven. In a study I found out about fish eggs in Weston prices, book nutrition and physical degeneration.

It’s a book about a dentist who explore native people that were still living off of the land, their natural diets. These people actually used fish eggs as fertility and nutrition for pregnant women, nursing women, children during developmental stages for its incredibly high nutrient content. If indigenous groups did not have access to fish eggs, they would always have another high nutrient food, maybe some type of shellfish, fatty insect or organ meat in Alaska.

When food is plentiful, full and bears have fattened up, they actually killed the salmon and only eat the brain and the eggs of the salmon. That’s because those are the two highest nutrient foods on the animal. If you think about it, a fish egg is basically a tiny fish, so it encapsulates the entire nutrition of the animal. It’s like eating nose to tail except you don’t have to eat. You know the whole animal piece-by-piece, regardless of what fish the eggs are from.

The nutrient profile is similar per calorie, that is, salmon eggs, for instance, are higher in fat. They have a higher fat percentage, so the nutrients might be more concentrated, but calorie for calorie all fish eggs are equal, whether it’s cod, roe herring, roe, sturgeon, Roe. All fish roe is a super nutrient-dense food. It’s just the facts of protein ratio varies depending on the species of fish, and we can also assume it matters if the fish is farm raised or wild caught, that will directly affect the nutrients and the omega profile of the fish eggs.

You have to be pretty careful with making sure that the fish eggs, the caviar you’re buying, is not from farmed low quality fish that the fish is on some type of natural diet. So the omega-6 to omega-3 ratio is correct. If we take a look at 100 grams of salmon roe, which is 200 calories, the vitamin profile is literally complete. We have a decent amount of vitamin, A all of the B vitamins, vitamin C vitamin D, vitamin E – and there is definitely vitamin K in salmon roe, because vitamin K is contained in all high quality animal foods.

The test is expensive to conduct, so sometimes they don’t test for it. The vitamin C might actually be misleading because sometimes they add ascorbic acid. As a preservative to fish eggs. Now fish eggs do contain vitamin C, but usually when you salt, the food, it loses its vitamin C content. The anti scorbutic properties of the food are lost, so I have to do some nutrient testing in the future on salmon or get more correct data.

Maybe we’ll do that later this year, the vitamin D and E content are incredibly high for an animal food. These nutrients are usually specific to higher cholesterol, animal foods such as eggs, brains and, of course, fish eggs. Fish eggs are also complete from both a mineral and element perspective as they contain every single one of them in reasonable amounts. It’s worth noting. They have a significant iodine content as well.

So if you’re consuming fish eggs on a daily basis, you probably don’t need to supplement iodine fish eggs even have conjugated linoleic acid, which has been shown to have various health benefits. They contain arachidonic acid as well a fatty acid, specific to animal foods and, just like DHA, our brains require a certain amount of arachidonic acid. Every day. Of course, fish eggs are incredibly high in epa and DHA omega-3 fatty acids.

They are unparalleled, possibly with the exception of animal brains. Of course, I wouldn’t be mr. Salmon roe if I didn’t have some for you guys to taste today. Here we have some red caviar and the beauty of this food is a testament to its nutrient profile. Up close, we see the very pretty red pearls, almost as pretty as me, and when we bring up fish eggs, we have to bring up the conversation of food palatability, how a food tastes in its raw natural state and in the case of fish eggs yeah.

They added a little bit of salt to them, but there really isn’t a tastier food in nature that hasn’t been changed, and if we’re going to look at foods in nature and ones that tastes the best without cooking them, seasoning them fermenting them. They are all animal foods. When you ferment, an animal food, you can increase the palate ability in a natural way, but a lot of the modern things we do from salting to processing to very specific cooking methods.

You know unless you’re just throwing a piece of meat over a fire. You can argue that it’s not too. Naturally, this food palatability is important because, usually how a food tastes in its natural state is an indicator of its nutrient properties. If you were to take bone now, for instance, that had been fermenting in the femur bone of an animal for a couple of weeks, because the Coyotes couldn’t break into it, then it would taste like cheese and the reason these foods taste good is because every single Nutrient in the food reflects in the taste of it.

If a food has certain vitamins, minerals, elements and fatty acids in the food, you can literally taste them in the boot. You can taste, copper, you can taste iodine, you could taste every single vitamin that’s contained in the food and when you have all the vitamins in balanced amounts like we do in fish roe, it makes sense that the food tastes amazing, and not only does it taste. Amazing in its unaltered State it also satiates you very quickly.

If you have a few tablespoons of fish roe you’re going to be full, I would love to see someone try to eat like a pound of salmon or at once. You would get a couple bites in and feel full because it’s so nutrient dense, it’s literally satiating your appetite, although there is little variance in the nutrient profile calorie for calorie the taste of fish eggs varies greatly. That’s why some fish eggs are super expensive, like sturgeon, caviar and salmon.

Roe isn’t really too expensive. The fish eggs will literally taste like the fish they are coming from. So salmon roe is going to taste like salmon when tasting fish, eggs or caviar. I believe you’re supposed to use a plastic or nonmetal spoon because it alters the taste. I’ve never really noticed this, but let’s give some of the ROE a try, there’s so much going on here. You have that cholesterol, richness, that’s specific to foods like eggs and brains.

You have a slight iodine flavor. You have. I know that complex salmon flavor it’s like tasting the ocean in the form of a scrambled egg. That’s how I would describe the flavor. The texture is like a soft pearl that pops in your mouth and then that rich cholesterol, a liquid, comes out. This is like the best food you could feed to a baby or a child. Not only would they love it, it’s like super colorful and approachable.

The salmon roe is tasty. I would give it about an 8 out of 10 from a flavor perspective, but there’s a reason. Sturgeon Roe is so much more expensive. Here I have some hackleback roe. It’s a type of sturgeon. The pearls are black. This is what you think of when you, you know when you see caviar like the black fish eggs, yeah, there’s a reason, there’s a reason. Caviar is made from sturgeon. The flavor is completely different.

It’s buttery it’s more complex. It doesn’t have as much of an iodine flavor, of course, you’re not supposed to eat caviar with the spoon like this, but I mean you’re on a carnivore, a keto diet. This is ensuring you’re not getting anything negative. Now, if you’ve never tried sturgeon roe, it can be on the expensive side, but on Franky’s free-range meat, our goal is to make everything affordable. So we are taking a profit loss and providing it to everyone, so they can experience it.

This is something that maybe I would have once or twice a month on a special occasion: it’s not prohibitively expensive, but it’s expensive enough that you couldn’t really eat it every day, whereas you could eat the salmon or every day. So if you guys haven’t tried sturgeon Roe specifically, I encourage you just for the experience, I’m honestly one of those people who don’t really care about the experience with certain things, but when I ate sturgeon Roe for the first time I was like you know, it truly Is amazing, so if you guys would like to check out Frankie’s free-range meat comm, we are offering salmon roe in that portion, as well as the sturgeon row in the same portion.

This is half a kilo of salmon roe we’re going to be offering it in four containers because having one big container like this is a little ridiculous and the sturgeon Roe is going to come like this. It is in a one ounce container. So, thank you guys for joining me today. If you have any more questions about fish, roe, fish, eggs, caviar feel free to.

30 Day Keto Diet Results – NOT What I Expected

My name is Scott, and today we’re going to talk about the ketogenic diet challenge. I went through four mental health reasons. That’s what those 30 days of vlogs were all about. What I was trying to do is experiment and see. Does food have an impact on my mood now? The answer is obviously it does. Obviously it does, but I was looking for ways that the ketogenic diet would increase.

My energy overall mood how I felt in the mornings and what it did was actually something that I didn’t expect. I’m going to talk about three things that the ketogenic diet basically cured in 30 days. It’s pretty remarkable and then I’m going to talk about what foods. I’m introducing now that I’ve already introduced and what the effect has been so far, because if you follow me on Twitter and an Instagram and stuff, you know I’ve been talking about man.

I just want that coffee. I just want a nice old-fashioned, plain donut: how about a maple dip, how about a vanilla dip? How about an apple fritter? I was craving some of that stuff and well I’m going to tell you what I’ve introduced and what the effect is. But first the three things: oh and also blood, test results too. You can check this article out. I was in the hospital cuz. I fell off my bike and what they do is they take your blood when you’re in the hospital see if everything’s a-okay and it just so happens.

I wanted to do that anyways for the ketogenic diet. So I’m like hey nurse, May please have those test results. Can I have a copy of that now? This doesn’t include like B vitamins and things like that. You need separate tests like for an actual physical to get those, but there’s pretty cool things in this blood test that I think you’ll find very interesting, because the ketogenic diet, man that’s a way different way to eat.

Then I was used to like I was pretty high carbon when you’re doing 70 % fat 20 % protein 10 % carb, I was barely doing 10 % carb there. It was very, very different and the blood tests actually surprised me. So you ready sit back. Relax. Take your pants off if you haven’t subscribed please subscribe. This is a mental health Channel depression to expression where we express ourselves, we freely with confidence all right.

Let’s do this, the first thing the ketogenic diet cured at around day. I think it was around day 15. After the keto flu after I felt terrible, the big cure was my allergies, seasonal allergies. Now I can’t remember a time where I didn’t have seasonal allergies, where my eyes weren’t itchy, where my nose wasn’t running or plugged where my ears and and the roof of my mouth, weren’t itchy, it hasn’t happened and that’s a result that I didn’t know.

I didn’t expect that to happen, and let me tell you going through a summer and not having to sneeze not having to take allergy. Medication was awesome, like I go to bed and I can actually breathe through my nose for all of you who suffer from seasonal allergies. It’s like going to bed and you have to breathe through your mouth and you wake up with the dry mouth the Pastis. This was a treat. This was a real treat and again from an early early age.

I’ve been taking arias, Claridon doesn’t work, for me. Arias is the one allergy medication that I take. That just does wonders I’m spitting everywhere and I was just so surprised by that result, so surprised and so happy. So that’s number one: seasonal allergies gone with the ketogenic diet. Gone number two. This isn’t really a cure, and this was pretty much an obvious thing, because my my calorie intake, I don’t think, was as high when I when you go off carbs as you can see by the vlogs.

If you I’m going to, you know, put a link up here where you can see every single vlog I did for the 30 days, and you can see how I’m pissed off at the beginning, going through keto flu there’s times of depression times of more anxiety times Where I’m just like this diets stupid and then other times where, after the keto flu I get used to things, get used to the habit, you know eating differently, getting used to cooking differently, buying the right vegetables buying meats, finding them on sale.

You get used to the whole thing after just a few weeks, but the one thing was: my calories were definitely lower. At the beginning I had to eat non-stop. I and I was telling Michaela who introduced me to this diet and told me to try it. She was like yeah you’re, going to like be hungry a lot of the time at the beginning, your body’s just not used to it. My body was craving carbs and I’m just like use the fat for energy.

You idiot my body wasn’t listening for a while. So what it did is uh for all you, ladies or gay men, I’m going to show you my stomach now, it’s nothing serious okay, but I had a beer belly before the ketogenic diet, not a beer belly, but I had a kangaroo pouch. I was growing a Joey in there and from the reduced calories, but also you talk to anyone. You reduce carbs, your stomach gets flat man, it gets flat.

So that was what I saw even around week. One flatter stomach and no bloating after eating huge improvement, huge improvement, so I just want to show you like: that’s pretty cool right and I’ll do a little flex like guys, I haven’t done a sit-up in a month a because that accident bruised my ribs right. I don’t know if you can see that that’s my hip, but that was all bruised. My ribs are still bruised here, so I’ve been able to work out, but look at that man that’s crazy.

Now, if I push out that’s the push out, that’s the push out, but you’re never actually going cool like when you’re walking around right. So that’s pretty cool. What do you think I do a little twist. You know it’s all lighting at the end of the day and I’ll have to make this a thumbnail. So I get a click or two but um guys like in all seriousness, not to flaunt or beep, be cocky about how my body looks.

You know, I don’t do that type of thing, but I wanted to show you and you asked for it again. I should have done it before thinking. If I have any pictures of a before, I probably do, but I did lose 10 pounds on the keto diet and the 10 pounds were on. It was honestly in that stomach area. That’s where you know, women get it in the hips and men get it right. In the bellies right in the lower abdomen, so that was pretty cool.

What do you think? That’s pretty cool, so we’re at no allergies. That’s number one awesome number two belly fat, gonzo, number, three headaches headaches! Now: here’s the tough thing! Here’s! The tough thing! I got a pillow about a week and a half into the ketogenic diet, a new pillow, a Casper pillow, but I was sleeping at my parents place. I was sleeping at friends places, so I had different pillows throughout the month and I was still getting no headaches in the morning in the afternoon night.

Never never, and let me tell you I would get headaches often in the morning. Ketogenic diet, no headaches! No headaches. Can you believe that now I want with these three three cures? I’m not I’m not advertising. Any diet like I’m. Never one to be like carbs are bad like to eliminate this or go vegan or go carnivore. Do this and that I’m just sharing my own experiences here and with these three improvements, that’s pretty awesome, that is pretty cool just after 30 days of eating differently.

I don’t know what the long-term effects of keto are well I’ll talk to I’ll talk to you about the foods I’m reintroducing, but that’s so cool that is so cool. Cuz, usually I’ll, have a headache in the morning. Just it feels like inflammation. That’s what it feels like and with the weather to certain certain weather, cloudy weather, I don’t know different pressures in the air. I get headaches for 30 days, not a headache, even during the kedo flu, not a headache.

So that’s cool. Those are the three things. So we have allergies, no bloating and a flatter stomach and no headaches, that’s really cool. So next I’m going to go through introducing my foods and last I’ll show you my blood results. So again, if you follow me on Instagram or Twitter, all the links are below all the great links to all these cool playlists and what we do here on depression to expression.

It’s all available in the description, but I was craving doughnuts. Carb withdrawal is a real thing and you know people get hangry and maybe people before their morning, coffee, they’re, less they’re, impatient and they’re not fun to be around that’s carb withdrawal. Man like I was feigning for a little bit. I was pissed off. I was really mad about having to eat so much at the beginning, but let me tell you the one thing I wanted more than anything was a doughnut.

I wanted a doughnut and I haven’t had one yet, but what I have introduced slowly but surely, is Mikey Mikey genic diet was different than most because most people stick on the dairy, coz dairies great for fat, a bunch of cheaters, but I didn’t do dairy. I didn’t I had no fruit, not a single fruit. This was meat and veggies. That’s it that’s it oils, of course, oils ruj and water. No coffee either no bullet coffees, no butter in my cup, my coffee.

None of that, because that’s a big thing with keto as well doing the bullet coffees nothing. So what I wanted to introduce first was fruit. I first had a plum waited a day had a banana and a peach waited two more days, no reaction, so good news. Those three fruits like I miss bananas. I would have a banana every single day, at least two bananas and no reaction whatsoever. Fruit, a ok, second beer.

I had a beer and no reaction whatsoever. I waited a few days right. The taste was delicious. I’m trying to think of what beer I actually had no jeez. It was at the wedding, it was a Sleeman, it was a sleeve and yes, I could have chosen a cool, Ontario craft brew or something from Toronto. It was a Sleeman, but it was delicious. It was delicious and it was out of wedding. So maybe I sweat I danced.

I had lots of food. I didn’t eat carbs there during the meal, but the beer success so we’re at fruit beer, a ok haven’t, had a bagel or any bread or anything whatsoever. But the other thing I did have was oh wait. Let me just think, oh right, sorry, the bread that was just a lie. I had a burger with the bun burger with the bun and phone. Please and no reactions whatsoever didn’t feel groggy didn’t feel any adverse effects.

I know what you’re thinking like yeah – maybe I would have, if I did this – maybe for a two-month period or three months like do 90 days and then go back to the original diet um. But I was definitely in ketosis man like oh, it was the best feeling when I woke up one morning and wasn’t starving that happened at around day 26 27. I woke up, and I wasn’t starving like I would get up in the morning and I’d be in pain because I’d be so hungry and after, like you know three weeks, I wasn’t starving.

That was a great feeling, but so I was definitely in ketosis, but the bread didn’t do anything and the last thing that I reintroduce was sauces. So I did catch up and this barbecue sauce that was fairly low sugar. But I I dipped chicken and a burger in there, and that was it now I the way I did the burger was no sauce on the burger, so I could see how the bun is just alone and then reintroduce sauces on their own.

I was very careful about this no reactions whatsoever, but remember this is mental health. I did the ketogenic diet for mental health reasons not to not to lose weight, not to see what my workouts would be like, and energy levels that way pumping iron. Although I, my energy, wasn’t great the whole time, but this was for mental health and as far as anxiety or anything like that or depression, no real benefit with the ketogenic diet, no big benefit, because I was feeling good from the beginning.

Now, as I told you all before, the real test would be going off antidepressants and maintaining the ketogenic diet and that’s something I’m still debating and I’d appreciate your balanced opinion there and don’t go after me about that. But it’s a big decision because I’ve gone off antidepressants before and I’ve almost died and I know the withdrawal effects it’s like well. If you’ve gone through that yeah, I don’t need to describe it.

So last but not least, this is very uncut. Let’s go through the blood results now, as I said before, the nurse was nice enough to give me a copy, I’m trying to figure out how to best share this with you guys they measured sodium potassium chloride, total co2 glucose levels and creatinine. I believe: that’s how you say it: creatine, creatine, NIEM, so sodium perfect and my meals. I added salt on everything since with carbs and breads you’re, getting a lot of salt.

That way, you do need to salt your food with the keto. That’s one thing I learned potassium on the high end, but right on chloride, perfect glucose was on the low end, so they give you a range of four moles per liter 27.8, and I was at four point six. So the nurse did say that was on the lower end, glucose and well, obviously, I’m not getting the carbs so that I think that makes sense or maybe I wasn’t full keto.

I don’t know those experienced or maybe a doctor is reading. Please, let me know creatine, which is creatine. You get all that from meat right. That was at 84 out of 112. So that’s a perfect range. I just want to talk about the things that were high for me. It with this blood test, so red blood cell count, was on the height like it was too high. So they give you a range of four point, three to five point: six e 12 per litre.

Don’t know what that means anyways. It was five point: six for red blood cell count was high, as well as which is cool MP v MP V stands for the platelet volume, the your blood platelets and how large they are – and I was these were big, and if something is again, I was Talking to the nurse MPV, I can tell you exactly what that means mean: platelet volume, average platelet volume calculated measurement of the average size of platelets found in the blood and is typically included in the tests as part of the CBC.

So what this means, if it’s high it says, normally occurs when your body constantly creates new platelets because of a continual loss of existing platelets. This can be caused by things like recent surgery, infection inflammation or from heavy blood loss. So I didn’t lose any blood, but I’m thinking maybe inflammation could have had something to do with this, although with the lack of seasonal allergies, like allergies, it’s a it’s an immune response right, so I’m thinking the inflammation my immune system went down, but who knows, I Know I’m kind of talking out of my ass here because I’m not a doctor and I have absolutely no medical training when it comes to comes to blood tests.

But if you know more about this stuff, please comment below. This is a this is a dialogue. So please help me out a little bit if you find this interesting and the other thing that was high was monocytes ABS monocytes, when they’re high, a heightened percentage in your blood, can be caused by chronic inflammatory disease such as inflammatory bowel disease. So another thing with inflammation: isn’t that interesting, two of the things in my blood that could be caused that are high, that could be caused by inflammation.

That is very interesting, isn’t it so those are the blood results. Blood tests, white blood cell count was perfect again. I talked about the glucose being perfect. I said red blood cell count was perfect and that’s about it, so that was the ketogenic diet. There’s the three cures: that’s the reintroduction of food. So far so good again, I’m not going back to heavy carb anymore. I told you I’d update you on that, I’m not, it doesn’t make sense and I’m definitely not eating dairy again.

I don’t miss it. Do not miss dairy, I don’t miss cheese. I don’t miss milk, I don’t miss yogurt, don’t miss butter. None of that. So excuse me, dairy, is something that I’m fine with missing out on. That’s a big inflammatory thing I guarantee. If I reintroduce dairy allergies would come back. I could probably experiment with that for sure, but I just have to go. Buy dairy. I don’t really want to buy stuff and then the blood cell or sorry the blood tests all seems good right, except for the the high the high parts, but the nurse said.

That’s like honestly, nothing to worry about we’ll see if I’m dead within a week. Please call for help now. That’s so that’s the 30-day challenge. Everyone Kido I’d, highly recommend it if you suffer from seasonal allergies. If, if you want to try something different for anxiety for depression right for for any kind of physical illness that you have um, I’m all about just trying everything attacking something that you suffer with from every different possible angle and see what works and diet for the Most part is something that people don’t really think about and that we don’t experiment with which is actually pretty nuts.

Let me tell you it wasn’t fun for the first two weeks, but it’s two weeks out of your life man. It was definitely worth it as an experiment and I’m going to change the way I eat for the rest of my life a burger here, and there is great, but as far as heavy passes and dairy sauces and cheeses and candy, it’s just not worth it anymore. It doesn’t do anything for me so like I would keep this diet altered version where you know I can have.

I can still have fruit, which is fantastic, but I do it just from the seasonal allergies point of view and the headaches pretty awesome and I’m pretty excited. So I hope this gave you some motivation to to try this yourself. I know a lot of people who are following the vlogs everyday, we’re doing their own challenges. Please comment. Let me know how your 30-day challenge went. I know a lot of you were getting rid of refined sugar.

Some of you stopped drinking coffee. Other people were doing meditation for a month every day. Let me know that went and I hope you enjoyed the new backdrop for all the articles. I love reading musics, a form of expression and I love nature. This is like my mental health toolbox right here, so I hope you like the brighter background, because brighter days are ahead for all of us, stay strong, keep being you and don’t forget to express yourself.

Pumpkin Seeds are a great addition to your Keto snack list!
