Persimmons and Chestnuts Go Together

Before I dive in to some recent eats I came across this post on healthy living and how to burn fat the other day and think it really sums everything up in a clear and straight foreword manner.
My first Squash and Sweet Potato Parfait! (kabocha as always)
This is definitely as good or better than your standard fruit and granola parfait. I used leftovers that were herb and turmeric baked and then some Full Fat Strauss Yogurt and a little extra plain whey protein. Delish. Extra Cinnamon of course.
Just ate chestnuts for the first time... and now they are a go to carb source! Pure carbs unlike a normal nut. I found some cooked and vacuum packed although also enjoyed roasting my own.
So delicious to get some glucose/starch recovery going in addition to the fructose heavy Persimmon in my smoothie.
If you just use fructose (fruit=mostly), you replenish liver glycogen more than muscle, and also don't absorb the carbs as well compared to when you get some of each.
Roasted yumminess.
I was afraid of consuming any fructose before, but now use it in moderation and don't feel any negatives. Whey, Persimmon, and Cinnamon for the win. Almost like last year! So much has changed.
 Pretty stoked on finding this Persimmon Tree when a friendly fellow customer at Good Earth in Fairfax (can't wait for the new one!) told me about it as I asked the staff if there were any more Persimmons. Used some in a feast of epic proportions which I may post soon.
One of my better meals enjoyed recently. It didn't take much, but each thing was so good individually and together.
  • Wild Smoked Alaska Salmon (8 oz)
  • 2 Soft Boiled Free Range Eggs (Sous Vide)
  • Prather Ranch Bacon
  • Baked Yam w/ Cinnamon
  • 1/2 Avocado
  • Bubbie's Raw Sauerkraut
  • Sun Dried Tomatoes in Olive Oil
I poured the bacon grease over my Yam which is already so delicious with Cinnamon. The creaminess from the mushy egg yolks, avocado, Salmon, Bacon fat, and even the Yam to some degree, combined with the crispy skin of the Yam and meat from the bacon, combined with saltiness/savory sun dried tomato and kraut, PLUS the smokey Salmon and bacon, is amazing.

Also, I started making some quick videos for my parents to learn about nutrition and good eating without me repeating myself in person all the time! Here's a recent one but they are all available on my Youtube Channel.


  1. This was a great post and I couldn't agree more. Didn't realize you did videos--I'll have to check out a few of your others!
