Moray eel

This morning I noticed that my blood cholesterol level decreased from 254 to 230 mg/dl: since May it has decreased by 10% and I'm so happy for that and I will try to eat healthy food again. First of all, seafoods, considering that Civitavecchia, the town where I have been living since 1991, is situated close to the see and I can always buy good fish. Local market offers seafood that have been harvested in the past 12 hours and can contain more iron, phosphorus, proteins, and vitamin D than fishes that are shipped from far away.  With regards to local fishermans, the picture above shows a muray eel. I saw that it in the local market and despite its snake-like appearance, moray eel is a fish and not a reptile. Of course, it is edible: the meat is very soft and white, delicious. Someone says that deep fry works better but I don't think so ... I've decided to avoid fried food. Have you never eaten that fish?

Just two picture, here on the left,  to show you a particular motorcycle (maybe,  its right definiton is "sidecar"). 
It was in my neighborhood this morning and came from Poland, as  shown by its registration number.  We, bloggers,  are sometimes  looking for new  images  for our blogs. 
Running sessions are going well although I'm running no more than three times a week at the moment. 
On the vacation front, I will be on holiday since July 25: the main destinations are Gaeta and Bologna (North Italy).  I really need some time off work to be spent doing whatever I want.

Happy vacation time to everyone!

Well done on getting your cholesterol down.
That moray eel looks very unappetising. Even if it's supposed to be delicious I don't think I could eat it.

Good job on the cholesterol!

I'm with Char and Andrea - that eel looks too creepy to eat! :-)

As you know I don't eat seafood.
Glad your cholesterol is down.
Enjoy your vacation time. I will leave for Spain on 30th.

Well done with your Cholesterol! I have never eaten Moray Eel but as a conservationist I would rather feel to protect it than eat it... Interesting motor cycle.

My husband is always on the lookout for old Ducati's, especially when we are in Italy :)

We have vacation the last three weeks from August but are staying home this time.

I have never eaten that eel and never will either LOL. I don't like most fish and don't eat it very often.

Just in case you won't blog before vacation: have a great vacation and a good time.
