Taka Update August 08, 2017

Fish Information
I have big tuna from Pacific Ocean. It is just red meat tuna only with no toro. I will not buy farmed tuna from Japan. It was last month and was a big mistake because of too much fat. That fat was not healthy at all. I try to buy wild caught tuna and look for natural made toro.
King salmon season is in. I have Alaskan and Japanese. Both are good.
Uni supply is not bad. Japanese one is not easy this week because of typhoon. I have Mexican uni this week. I believe this is from California peninsula.

Monday is Sushi Day.
We have Monday Special. Selected wines and sakes are $5 by the glass. Sapporo Draft beer is $3 by the glass. All Togo orders are 20% off. These offers are Monday only. We extend it in August, I think I do this for a while.

Stanford researchers find intriguing clues about obesity by counting steps via smartphones
Stanford researchers using smartphones to track the activity levels of hundreds of thousands of people around the globe made an intriguing discovery: In countries with little obesity, people mostly walked a similar amount per day. But big gaps between people who walked a lot and those who walked very little coincided with much higher levels of obesity.

I feel we have to walk more. I walked 4 hours at Golf course last Sunday. I walked 2-3 hours in Barcelona during on vacation. Walking is the best way to reduce the risk of obesity and diabetes. We have to walk and try to avoid using wheelchairs when we get old.

We have Monday Special. Selected wines and sakes are $5 by the glass. Sapporo Draft beer is $3 by the glass. All togo orders are 20% off. These offers are Monday only. We have 2 more days in July.

Patio is closed because of Hot weather.
Some people want to seat at patio. It is too hot to eat. We serve sushi and sashimi, fresh cold items. You might get sick. And a few people complain about this. “Your sushi is not cold, it is warm”. We had this weird complain before. Please understand.

Aging comes from foot.
Locomotive syndrome is a condition of reduced mobility due to impairment of locomotive organs. Since upright bipedal walking involves minutely controlled movement patterns, impairment of any aspect of the locomotive organs has the potential to adversely affect it. In addition to trauma, chronic diseases of the locomotive organs, which progress with repeated bouts of acute exacerbations, are common causes of the locomotive syndrome.
We really need to be careful after 50 years old. We have to train bones, joints, muscles and nerves. Walking is good starting exercise. You can start with 20minutes walk a day.

Taka Update June 2017

Taka Update June 05, 2017

Fish Information
My vacation is over. It is once a year. But I did not take any vacation last year. I went to Barcelona and Amsterdam. Restaurant business is normally slow after Memorial Day and it is good time to travel.
Fish is not much changed. Uni Is getting bad because of summer, Maines uni season is over about 3-4 weeks ago, California is short harvest. So we can get uni from Japan only. This is small one and the price is high. And I saw the news about uni in Japan. It is same as California, it means global warming. Stop Trump otherwise we cannot eat uni near future.
We can get Japanese fish tomorrow and Thursday as usual.

Rotary Club convention in Atlanta 2017
Yes, this is June 10-14th here in Atlanta. Many restaurants are fully booked on Saturday night. We have 20 people of Japanese group coming on that day.

Turmeric Extract May Prevent, Even Reverse Diabetes (Type 1 and 2)
If you’ve been diagnosed with pre-diabetes, then you might just want to pick yourself up some turmeric. You don’t need to read below but Turmeric, curcumin works for diabetes prevention.
GreenMedInfo reports on the findings being described as a “remarkable human clinical study” published in the Diabetes Care journal from the American Diabetes Association, reports that “turmeric extract was 100% successful” in preventing pre diabetes from progressing to type 2 diabetes over the course of 9 months.
Performed by Thailand researchers, the study’s primary object was to assess the efficacy of curcumin, the primary polyphenol in turmeric which gives the spice its golden hue, in delaying the development of type 2 diabetes mellitus (T2DM) in a prediabetic population.
The study design was a randomized, double-blinded, placebo-controlled trial including 240 subjects who met the American Diabetic Association’s criteria for prediabetes. All subjects were randomly assigned to receive either 250 mg of curcuminoid or placebo capsules for 9 months.
“After 9 months of treatment, 16.4% of subjects in the placebo group were diagnosed with T2DM, whereas none were diagnosed with T2DM in the curcumin-treated group. In addition, the curcumin-treated group showed a better overall function of β-cells, with higher HOMA-β (61.58 vs. 48.72; P < 0.01) and lower C-peptide (1.7 vs. 2.17; P < 0.05). The curcumin-treated group showed a lower level of HOMA-IR (3.22 vs. 4.04; P < 0.001) and higher adiponectin (22.46 vs. 18.45; P < 0.05) when compared with the placebo group.”
“A 9-month curcumin intervention in a prediabetic population significantly lowered the number of prediabetic individuals who eventually developed T2DM. In addition, the curcumin treatment appeared to improve overall function of β-cells, with very minor adverse effects. Therefore, this study demonstrated that the curcumin intervention in a prediabetic population may be beneficial.”

Taka Update March 12, 2017

Fish Information
It is middle of March. Not much new information right now. Monday is New Zealand fish day. I get Kinme-Dai, Alfonsino from there. Shima Aji, I ordered many times but it came one time only. I also get Tasmanian trout from Australia on Monday.
I get Sole from Japan every Tuesday. Sole has more fat than flounder. This is white meat but texture and fat. And this might be good.
Oyster is still available. I don’t know after April. I do not think it is good when sea temperature is high.
I try to make new special. Just started “Fried Scallop with Mango white sauce” was a smash hit last weekend. I made this 6-7 years ago and came back again. I try to make more something nice spring dish.

Make bone strong when get old.
Take calcium? But it is not enough. You have to take something with it.
Magnesium , Calcium and magnesium balance is important for our health. Magnesium activates so many nutrients in the body, but its relationship with Calcium is critical. Their synergistic behaviour is so inter-dependent, they’re increasingly referred to as The Twin Minerals. Eat soybean, cabbage, seaweed and broccoli.
Vitamin D, Getting enough calcium and vitamin D is essential to building strong, dense bones when you’re young and to keeping them strong and healthy as you age. Eat sardine, salmon and mushrooms. And take sunshine some times.
Vitamin K, it keeps calcium in your bones and out of your blood vessels. Eat lettuce, natto (fermented soy bean), seaweed and chives.
Vitamin C, it helps to increase calcium absorption. Eat orange, peppers, kiwi fruit, broccoli and berries.
I highly recommend to taking vitamins and minerals from food, not from tablet or pill. Eat well and be healthy always.
