Sustainable Seafood: Athlete Essential by WILD PLANET

Healthy seafood,  the real deal kind, not farmed or GMO scientifically rendered (available now in Canada) is a super healthy protein, gluten free- and heart/brain musts-EPA and DHA) Omega 3. An athlete essential...fish is quickly becoming the preferred protein source world wide.

But tasty choices, wild caught, sustainably sourced -from a shelf stable cans or pouches-  that tastes like fresh as fresh?

Surprise=Wild Planet-a brand that is widely available(including direct)-not only changed-as in elevated our taste buds expectations-vis à vis what a can of wild, skinless/boneless salmon or crowd fav albacore tuna-should taste like-we felt like ditching the 'canned' moniker-of everything we tried- as all products tasted are as tender flaky, chew-textured perfect...as if sourced straight off the fishing boats.

Upshot: Forever changed-in a good way-what …

Natural (er) Beauty: Reasons+Solutions

De-regulation of certain industries is a dominate Fed Thing, these days- but in the USA- cosmetics and supplements-elude FDA oversight-ALREADY-in ways that might surprise consumers/users.

One solution-stick with European made products- load up on your favs when there. That includes mass globally marketed brands...where-we suspect...same name products are made differently-as in higher standards-on the other side of the Pond.

Another solution-for supplements-opt for brands with 3rd party verifications of potency/contents-while for beauty-buy small cult brands that have ditched the unregulated/tested for safety stuff to begin with.

Ballpark Inspirations: Feasts for Foodies

Stadiums nationwide- have amped up concession offerings-with exotic/ethnic cuisines and name dropping restaurant/food truck outlets serving up gourmet fare.
BUT most backyard bbq chefs, urban masters of city park grills, and outdoor campers (picnic glampers) hauling around provisions, still seem to prepare (prefer) the culinary classics- inspired by yesteryear's ballpark staples. 

What's different... sophisticated global palates and a preference for cleaner ingredients have upped the epicurean menu-adding spicy flair, and gourmet global flavorings -less the artificial additives and preservatives.
