Health: Food Inc, What's going into your child's mouth these days?


Food Inc

It's bizarre that the produce manager is more important to my children's health than the pediatrician.~Meryl Streep, actress

What's going into your child's mouth these days? 

Do you really know?

With the mass production of sweets, sugar, carbs, fast food, etc; no wonder our present generation is the most obese. But not only this, we are the sickest ever.

Food Inc is a great movie/documentary to watch and really learn what goes into our system. Though hard, and though it may be a little pricy - depending on which country you are in - try giving your children healthier choices. Fruits as snacks, cut down on the number of cookies, etc.

Can't seem to get the time to prepare a healthy meal or even a meal during the week. Plan ahead, prepare on the weekends and freeze. Believe me this a better option than the 1000 calorie burger meal, they are chowing down.

This applies to us adults too. Let's try to live longer, and healthier to enjoy our grandkids and in some cases even our kids.

How to Cook Crab the Right Way

If you are thinking about Alaskan king crab legs and crab recipes; you should read this article for more information. It can save you lots of problems with your crab recipes, so continue reading about crab legs.

Read these tips before cooking crab meat.



Learning the Right Way to Cook Crab

Crabs are fascinating creatures. They live in many places in all our oceans and rivers. There are hundreds of species of crabs and they not only serve as scavengers of the sea; but are a true delicacy for man’s tongue as well. To be precise though, there are as close to five thousand different species in the crab world.

They prove to be quite rewarding when cooked properly and frozen as they are caught.

Of the thousands of crabs, the Alaskan king crab is very popular and sought after for its meat. Then you also have the Alaskan snow crab it is very big and found in and around the regions of Alaska. Another popular crab is the blue crab which is gaining ground in the North American market.

This is a soft-shell crab that is desirable just for this reason and many people dig right in after cooking crab meat.

The Dungeness crab is said to be the most plentiful crab around and the red rock crab are is not so popular. Their shells cannot be cracked so easily. They taste good, but unlike other crabs, they do not have a lot of crab meat.

People often love to cook crab, as it does not require a lot of time.

At the top of the list is Alaskan king crab legs. This is truly a favorite of many. This crab hunted in the deadly waters of Alaska which have claimed many lives; provides a lot of meat on the legs.

People also love eating claws as well, after cooking crab meat. It can be found in many restaurants, in both the western and eastern hemispheres.

At home many people, try to come up with dishes that everyone in their family will love; a meal that doesn’t take forever to prepare. This is especially good when you come home after a long and tiring day of work.

This is where meals and crab recipes that take very few minutes are quite helpful.

Because many fishermen prepare and freeze the crabs before exporting them, it can take just five minutes to prepare a crab recipes dinner.

Crabs can be found in hundreds of locations because man has always chosen to live near water, oceans, or rivers to source food from the sea and rivers.

Seafood has always been a healthy option

And Alaskan king crab legs are by no means an exception; as they are quite tasty after cooking crab meat. It is very nutritious and found in many healthy diet recipes.

It is good that we chose to cook crab as the industry has suffered over the years. Of course, various governments and organizations have implemented regulations to protect the industry and boost the demand for crab.

When boats go out, they must have the right equipment, they must follow a specific selection criterion and not catch and keep female crabs.
