What's Really In Your Frozen Fish?














I haven't bought wild caught frozen fish for a while, because I kept
having issues with it. On two separate occasions (from two different
stores) I bought fish that was supposed to be good according to the
best by dates, but they both smelled like ammonia.

I decided to try wild caught fish again, and it would've been nice to
find some caught in America, but no such luck. This fish was all the
way from China, so I told myself, "OK it's from China...at least I'm
gonna be eating something healthy." When I got home, I noticed
that each piece of fish had 520 mg of sodium! That's a lot of salt.




























This fish was full of sodium tripolyphosphate. According to 
merriam-webster.com, sodium tripolyphosphate is used as a
food additive, and as a component in some detergents, and 
suspected of contributing to water pollution. 

On accessdata.fda.gov, they say sodium tripolyphosphate is
GRAS (generally recognized as safe). This substance is
generally recognized as safe when used in accordance with
good manufacturing practice.

It's a shame you have to read the entire food package to 
find out if the healthy food you bought really is healthy.

A Mint You Can Eat While Wearing Your Mask

 














Have you ever wanted to eat a mint while wearing a mask, but the
mint ends up burning your eyes? The only mints I've been able to
eat while wearing a mask is Tic Tac Wintergreen Mints. They taste
good, help my itchy throat, and they do not burn my eyes if I'm 
wearing a mask.


A Mint You Can Eat While Wearing Your Mask

You put a mint in your mouth
Then you slap on the mask
Your eyes start to burn,
so you chew it up fast...
But there is a mint 
you can safely pick...
Tic Tac Wintergreen Mints 
they do the trick.

Many Businesses Contributing to the Spread of Covid

 














I've been working at the same company for over 15 years, and they 
don't care about me. It's a public business, and it continuously lets
unmasked people in. Legally, unmasked people can be refused
service, but they still receive it. They get service, and I feel like
I'm disposable in the eyes of my workplace.

Businesses are spreading Covid, and it's rarely mentioned, or not
mentioned at all. Many public places aren't protecting their workers.
Letting ANYONE in a place of business without a mask is wrong,
irresponsible, unethical, and it can be deadly!

Businesses need to be held accountable for the lives of their 
employees and customers, or they should be closed down.

The Difference Between Glad Press'n Seal and Glad ClingWrap














I've been using Glad Press'n Seal for years, but when I couldn't find
it, I bought Glad Clingwrap out of desperation. If I could grade both 
products I'd give the ClingWrap a C- and the Press'n Seal an A+. 
Both of them can be used for hot or cold foods, and they are micro-
wave-safe and BPA-free, but that's where the similarities end.

The ClingWrap doesn't do much clinging when wrapping food unless
you use a lot of it. And when microwaving food the directions say to
allow at least one inch of space between ClingWrap and food. 

The Press'n Seal does what the name says. You can press and seal 
whatever you want with ease. And you only need just enough product
to slightly expand over the edges of your container, so you'll use less.
Press'n Seal won't seal on a cold container, and it's more expensive 
than ClingWrap, but it's worth the price.

Give Your Mask a Trial Run

 














So you got a new mask...You put it on...You go out and it doesn't
fit well. You should've given your mask a trial run.

It's a good idea to wear any new mask around the house for a little
while, before you wear it out in public. You don't know what your
mask is gonna do once you add a little motion to it. Some masks 
slip down, scrunch up on the face, or cling to the nose. Some are
uncomfortable, and some masks seem to fit until you have to talk.
 
The next time you get a new mask wear it around the house first,
so you won't be constantly adjusting it.
