Good News For Pork Lovers – Like Me

 

Apparently pork belly is considered the holy grail for pork lovers according to worldofbuzz.com

For me I could eat the crackle and leave the pork. Now this is good news to me. Lets see why.

A study published by BBC recently, pork fat has been crowned the eighth most nutritious food on the planet! they say it is more unsaturated and healthier than lamb or beef fat. Also, it is a good source of B vitamins and minerals, which are vital for our human body.

A nutritionist from Singapore (no name) says pork fat is actually rich in oleic acid and contains 60 per cent monounsaturated fat.

“Monounsaturated fat and oleic acid are beneficial to our heart, arteries and skin. It can regulate our hormones as well.” “However, excessive consumption of fatty pork will lead to obesity, so it’s best to eat it with vegetables. Boiling or stir frying it is recommended,” she said. 

I am sure she is right but Moderation is probably in order I would say.

A la sainte terre – Saunterers

This was on FaceBook today – Historical Snapshots

I thought with everything moving so fast these days we should all learn to saunter through life and smell the roses. Look around and realize the beauty around us.

Hiking – “I don’t like either the word or the thing. People ought to saunter in the mountains – not hike! Do you know the origin of that word ‘saunter?’ It’s a beautiful word. Away back in the Middle Ages people used to go on pilgrimages to the Holy Land, and when people in the villages through which they passed asked where they were going, they would reply, ‘A la sainte terre,’ ‘To the Holy Land.’ And so they became known as sainte-terre-ers or saunterers. Now these mountains are our Holy Land, and we ought to saunter through them reverently, not ‘hike’ through them.”
