Bland is Beautiful

I love fish. I love to look at fishes and - poor old things - I love to eat them too. I should have been a fisherman (or fisherwoman). I am the idiot who stares at the fish counter moved to tears by the beauty of a mackerel's stripes or a trout's rainbow scales. I get funny looks from the fishmonger on many occasions because of it.

I am not so fascinated by pieces of fish on display: it is the whole fishes I love. Fishes are beautiful creatures to my eyes and I don't mind munching my way through mouthfuls of fishbones to get to their exquisite flavour. Interestingly, eating whole fishes such as sardines, herrings, mackerels or even trouts, is very good for the brain. It's the old Omega 3 oils that work wonders on our grey matter. It is as if my brain was asking for fish as a way to help it with its recovery. And so, as rule, I eat a lot of fish and I enjoy it......

....... Until I don't feel so well. As soon as my energy level dips below a certain point my appetite for food changes completely. On those days, I could not eat fish if it were presented to me on a silver platter. I cannot eat meat either. In fact I can't eat anything except ......... semolina!!!!! How weird is that?!? What the heck has semolina got to do with my energy levels? What is it about semolina that must suddenly be eaten?

There's got to be something there that we have yet to understand because my body is very consistent, to the point where I have come to call these down days Semolina Days. The warm baby food-like consistency of semolina is obviously comforting to me but there are lots of other things I can think of that would feel/taste the same or similar: porridge or any other hot cereal, mashed potatoes, warm milky drinks, etc. But no, it's got to be semolina.

When I mentioned this semolina addiction of mine to my dietician who specialises in mental health nutrition, she was not at all fazed. Her view is that the body/brain is very good at asking for what it needs and that it is best to go along with it (providing of course that I don't eat semolina exclusively for days on end). As a result, I have become much more relaxed about my occasional forays into semolina land and I take semolina in my stride - that's got to be better than wading through treacle!

One obvious thing about semolina is that it is bland. As a word, bland does not convey much dazzling excitement - and that could be the key. It could well be that on my 'low' days I need a food that doesn't stimulate too much response from my taste buds. Bland is easy on the mouth and easy on the stomach. Bland is good when there isn't much energy to spare.

Now all I need to do next time I have a Semolina Day is stick a strawberry on top of my bowl.

That way, even if I don't manage to eat the strawberry my bland semolina will be beautiful :0)

PS: I wonder what would happen of I mashed up some fish into my semolina? Nah... I don't think 'fishy semolina' would ever catch on (even it could be caught, ha! ha!).....

What is semonila? I have

What is semonila? I have never heard of this term. I too love fish and I am bipolar also. I was diagnosed just over 10 years ago. I find the key to beating this disorder is acceptance and know your main triggers. Avoiding stress definitely helps on most occassions.

Mouvement pour la montre,

Mouvement pour la montre, comme le cœur est aussi important que le corps humain. Le cœur à travers la livraison de sang battant constante pour le corps, afin de maintenir la fonction quotidienne du corps humain. Le mouvement de la montre automatique, replique montre à travers le swing Tuo constamment balancer l'énergie potentielle par la conversion mécanique, le stockage, la montre mécanique automatique pour fournir un flux constant de puissance. Comparé aux montres à remontage manuel, le remontage automatique montre une caractéristique majeure, que le mouvement des différentes formes de Tuo, leur présence, de sorte que la façon d'obtenir la puissance de la montre plus pratique, éliminant le besoin de décoller Montre sur la chaîne de problèmes. Tant que porté dans le poignet, à travers le bras balancer doucement peut obtenir de l'énergie, très pratique. Visible, mettre Tuo pour l'importance du mouvement automatique et même regarder la même chose, au fil des ans, les grandes marques se bousculent dans les efforts de tou pour déployer continuellement le charme du pendule dans la Hublot Montres. De l'époque, mettre Tuo a été appliqué à l'horloge ci-dessus. À l'époque du 18ème siècle, le premier horloger à pendule similaire a été conçu avec succès par l'horloger suisse de génie Abraham-Louis Perrelet (Bertley), aussi longtemps que la montre pour maintenir le mouvement physique, ce dispositif similaire La conception du pendule fournira le pouvoir pour l'enroulement. Et ce dispositif est devenu une étape importante dans l'histoire des montres et des horloges, est la première structure de remontage automatique au monde.Mais à l'ère de la montre de poche, cette conception est impopulaire, parce que la plupart du temps poche de poche, pour regarder hors de la montre de temps, si courte action n'est clairement pas suffisante pour laisser le pendule pour le temps nécessaire pour voyager quand l'énergie, de sorte que l'horloge pour créer le temps de se mettre à l'abri. Heureusement, au Jaeger LeCoultre Montres siècle, le siècle, la montre comme une nouvelle catégorie au lieu de la montre de poche, l'invention a été recoupée. En 1923, une division horlogère britannique nommée John Harwood développa une montre automatique, le poids plaçant automatiquement Tuo dans le mouvement de l'axe, le balancement du poignet pour obtenir une énergie potentielle à une position fixe. Slide poussa l'enroulement à prendre un nouvel élan.
