This low carb appetizer is called Naruto. It's Salmon, Tuna, avocado, caviar, with a ginger sauce wrapped in fresh cucumber. It's Oh so refreshing. The restaurant is called The Family Garden Japanese Chinese Cuisine and it's located in Richland Wa at The Uptown Shopping Center.
If you're in the mood for a tasty bowl of Thom Kha Gai or some Schezuan Beef and you're driving on I 90 through Deer Lodge Montana. Take the first exit entering town headed east (the same exit as Macdonalds). They have room for a couple big rigs behind the place. And a truck stop with loads of parking across the street.
but it's always been hard to find Tie Dye shirts in larger sizes so a while back I got a wild hair and decided to start making my own Tie Dye Trucker Shirts. But after one night of dying (no pun intended) My wife Terrie stepped in and saved me from myself and made some pretty awesome shirts. Mine were O.k. But I had to face the fact that Terries Tie Dye shirts (and some dresses she made) just look awesome.
The Shirt above Terrie made for me and we call it the "Dream Catcher"
My original plan was based around those orange and red safety shirts that a lot of places are requiring us to wear these days Heres a batch Le Artist Terrie made.
anyone that would like a Tie Dye Trucker Safety Shirt hand made by Terrie click Here and Stay tuned for whatever we think of next!!!

Standing in line at the truckstop I noticed a guy buying one of those cheap keychain tools they sell for impulse spenders. I told him "I've never had any luck with those lasting long enough to make them worth the money." He laughed and said "I had my last one for over a year." Turns out he's one of the mechanics that works at the shop next door. That was enough for me I told the lady at the counter I wanted one too. Turns out the mechanic got the last one. I remembered the name of the company though. They're called Swiss Tech. While ordering myself one thought I'd post a link to Amazon where I bought mine.
Eat flaxseed Driver, Improve memory, get omega 3's, fiber, and May help fight your neurapathy too!!!
Flaxseed is high in the Omega 3 Alphja-Lipoic Acid in fact it is by far the best plant based source of ALA. According to Webmd at www.webmd.com "Alpha-lipoic acid is used for diabetes and nerve-related symptoms of diabetes including burning, pain, and numbness in the legs and arms. High doses of alpha-lipoic acid are approved in Germany for the treatment of these symptoms." Not only is flaxseed high in omega 3's but it is also full of soluble fiber something that helps our bodies lower cholesterol.
Back in the 80's there was this super smart guy that did a study and found flax seed oil helped with depression. I found this at www.healthy.net "Dr. Donald O. Rudin, Director of the Department of Molecular Biology at Eastern Pennsylvania Psychiatric Institute found that within two hours, patients who had various mental disorders experienced improved mood and their depression lifted with flax seed oil."
So, In the morning I've been grinding up a couple tablespoons of Bobs Red Mill flaxseed and adding it to my granola or sometimes I just put it in a little bowl with some milk and eat it straight. It has a nutty flavor and reminds me of the wheatgerm my great grandma Rosa Cooper used to give me when I was a wee lad. Make sure you grind the seeds up first using a coffee grinder though, otherwise most of them will pass through withought giving the nutritious goodness locked inside!!!

May is here, My lonely Kettlebell has been sitting untouched (except for when I stub my toe on it crawling into my sleeper) for over a year. At a wide spot in the road on highway 191 between Great Falls and Laurel Mt I feel inspired and decided to crank out three sets of twenty. In between sets I walk around my truck huffing like a bull elk wondering if this is where I die, just kidding, I actually feel more alive than I've felt in the last year of driving. Maybe it's the springtime stirring my soul, or the backdrop of snow kissed mountains and the smell of new grass and baby cows watching me with cheeky curiosity in between lusty pulls from their mothers full udders. In my opinion there is no exercise that accomplishes so much in less than ten minutes. I jump back in the truck and start driving; the fuzzy vision I had from eating a liverworst sandwich purchased in the Amish store near Eddies Corner an hour before, is gone. The tingling in my legs and feet has turned from a dull roar to an existential question mark. Lack of exercise is the pre-diabetics bane. The Kettlebell is the best tool I've found to fight back against this sedentary existence.
It just hit me that February is over in less than three hours and I don't have anything health related to say. Then this song came on the radio and I was suddenly four years old again driving down the highway in the back of my Dad's 64 and 1\2 mustang I could see the Space Needle off in the distance still remember the smell of those seats, and It was this song that was playing. Hope you enjoythe 60's babes. Ooh La La.
