Harness the protein power of wild seafood after rugby training

first_img Advertising FeatureHarness the protein power of wild seafood after rugby trainingWhen it comes to looking after your body, many rugby players crave routine. However, while this can help in terms of conditioning, rehab and sleep, it can prove quite dull in the kitchen.“I think we in the UK – and bearing in mind, we’re an island – are slightly nervy about how to cook fish and how to make it delicious,” says Omar Meziane, chef with Harlequins and England.According to Meziane, who is also co-author of Cooking for Fitness, alongside James Haskell, many of us have been put off eating fish from a young age. And these people are now missing out on a valuable source of protein.So he has teamed up with Alaska Seafood for their Fuel Your Fitness campaign to let athletes know that there are more interesting ways to replenish the body, away from the usual suspects on your plate.Meziane continues: “Fish is far more versatile than chicken as a whole, you know. So I think it has been undersold. We should definitely have more of it in this country.“I work incredibly closely with nutritionists and if they want (players) to eat a high-protein diet, they may also be looking for the added goodness of the fish, so the Omega 3, selenium, and so on. Essentially, it’s my job to turn that fish into something delicious and appealing.Meet the chef: Omar Meziane (pic via Alaska Seafodd UK)“Chicken is obviously incredibly lean, very high in protein, you know, but the added benefits that we can get from fish far outweigh that of chicken, in particularly seafood from Alaska which is incredibly lean because of its wild nature and premium quality with it being frozen at sea.”Below, Meziane gives us his recipe for Wild Alaska Salmon Katsu Curry. But do the elite rugby players eat that much fish?“Take the really heavy training day we recently had with Harlequins, for instance,” he says. “Breakfast on a day like that would be generally quite light, you know, lots of oats to power them through those beasts of sessions. Lunch is then that perfect time to get the fish in.“It would generally be a piece of salmon which is popular, or a meaty whitefish such as Alaska pollock or yellowfin sole, perhaps. A lot of the boys when they come off the training pitch are exhausted. They don’t necessarily want to eat anything that’s too heavy. However, they know as part of their job they’ve got to eat and eat the right things.“So if we can present them with a piece of wild salmon, for instance, full of protein, full of healthy oils and fats and it’s delicious, it is going to do the job for them. It’s going to help them with that recovery in between sessions.”You may have noticed Omar’s delicious-looking salmon spaghetti above, or the recipe below.Want a bit more inspiration?

It’s a super easy dish to make and you can add rice if you fancy it, making the dish a high-carb option.“Perfect for a post workout meal, the omega 3 fatty acids can help towards the reduction of post exercise muscle inflammation. Wild salmon from Alaska is also packed with lean protein which is essential for muscle repair.”Ingredients:2 wild Alaska salmon fillets, skin removed 160g-180g 2 eggs50g plain flourSalt and pepper100g panko breadcrumbs50ml neutral vegetable oilFor the katsu sauce400g chopped tomatoes400ml coconut milk1 tbsp mild curry powder3 tbsp dark soy sauce1 tbsp honey1 lemongrass stalk2 red chillies½ white onion1 tbsp coconut oilMethod:Pre-heat your oven to 180°Finely chop the onion and chillies for the sauce and bash the lemongrass with the back of a knife. Heat a large deep saucepan over a medium heat and add the coconut oil. Add the onion, chilli and lemongrass and cook without colouring for 1-2 minutes. Now add the curry powder, coconut milk, chopped tomatoes, soy sauce and honey. Bring the sauce to the boil and then turn down to a gentle simmer and cook for 15 minutes. Once the sauce is cooked remove the lemongrass, check the seasoning and set aside.Place the flour into one bowl, crack and whisk the eggs into a separate bowl and place the breadcrumbs into another bowl. Place the salmon fillets into the flour and cover all over, then dip the salmon into the egg mixture, coating all over. Finally, into the breadcrumbs, ensure the breadcrumbs are covering the salmon fillets. Once the salmon fillets are bread-crumbed set aside for 5 minutes.Heat a large sauté pan over a medium heat and add the vegetable oil, once the oil is hot add the salmon fillets one at a time and cook for 1-2 minutes on each side or until golden brown. Once the salmon fillets are sealed, place them onto a roasting tray and pop into the oven for 8 minutes or until cooked through. Once the salmon is cooked place onto 2 serving plates and serve the sauce alongside or pour over the salmon.

Free Honduras!

first_imgAs of the morning of Dec. 19, the recent election in Honduras is being decided in the streets and workplaces — and perhaps in the political consciousness of the soldiers.Elections top the media headlines this week — from Birmingham to Kathmandu to Caracas to Tegucigalpa.In each case, Marxist lessons learned in struggle over a century ago still hold true: An election alone cannot decide which class rules society, or whether a nation can free itself from imperialist domination. But it would be an error to dismiss elections as meaningless.We can look to elections as a guide to what the masses are thinking. We can use them to assess the balance of forces and the internal conflicts in the enemy capitalist class. We can look to see where there is opportunity to intervene in the class and national struggle.Nowhere among these elections is the struggle more acute than in Honduras. The pro-imperialist regime declared itself victorious in an election everyone knows was a shameless fraud. Still, Washington has given its blessing to the dictatorship, and the European Union has agreed.On the other hand, the Organization of American States — usually a dependable tool of Washington — saw fit to call for a new election. It seems the OAS fears the Honduran masses and knows that accepting an obviously fraudulent election will likely spark more resistance, perhaps spreading elsewhere in Central America.At most, OAS endorsement of the stolen election could lead to a revolutionary upsurge in Honduras, going far beyond a mere electoral victory for Alianza, the left opposition coalition.Former President Mel Zelaya has called on the mass movement to come out in the streets and plazas and to stay there. News from the front line of this struggle is still sketchy. This intense class and national conflict is yet to be decided.Our job as a movement of workers and oppressed peoples in the center of the empire is not only to observe and learn from this struggle. We must do whatever we can in solidarity with the people of Honduras who are fighting for their liberation from imperialism and from class oppression.The first task is to obstruct the regime in Washington from using its force against the Honduran people.FacebookTwitterWhatsAppEmailPrintMoreShare thisFacebookTwitterWhatsAppEmailPrintMoreShare thislast_img read more

International Audience Hears About the Importance of Distillers Grains to Global…

first_img By Gary Truitt – Oct 23, 2012 International Audience Hears About the Importance of Distillers Grains to Global Feed Market Home Energy International Audience Hears About the Importance of Distillers Grains to Global Feed… SHARE Facebook Twitter Facebook Twittercenter_img Source: NAFB News Service SHARE Renewable Fuels Association Vice President Geoff Cooper says distillers grains and other ethanol co-products have become a tremendously important component of the global animal feed market. Speaking to a crowd of more than 500 feed producers, marketers and buyers from around the world at the Export Exchange – Cooper shared that the American ethanol industry produced nearly 39-million tons of nutrient-dense animal feed in the 2011-12 marketing year. He said that means the ethanol industry surpassed the U.S. soybean crushing industry in terms of feed production. According to Cooper – the feed produced by the ethanol industry is nourishing beef, dairy, swine, poultry and fish around the world – with about a quarter of the feed co-products generated last year exported to more than 50 countries.Cooper also highlighted the U.S. ethanol industry’s response to the historic drought of 2012. Cooper said there is a belief that the ethanol industry is insulated from the effects of the drought and high corn prices because of the Renewable Fuel Standard. But he said corn use for ethanol dropped by almost 15-percent as crop conditions deteriorated and corn prices increased. He said that means the industry reduced its corn consumption by about 600 to 700-million bushels on an annualized basis in less than two months. A waiver of the RFS – Cooper added – wouldn’t have any meaningful impact on corn prices or availability. But if a waiver was granted and ethanol and biodiesel production were reduced – he pointed out that prices of distillers grains and soybean meal would increase and net feed costs might actually increase for some livestock and poultry feeders.

Other activists were surrounded by policemen outside. Reporters Without Borders went to the embassy in an attempt to give a letter to the ambassador, who refused it. The embassy has threatened to file a complaint against Reporters Without Borders.Win Tin, Burma’s most famous journalist, will celebrate his 75th birthday tomorrow in his cell in Rangoon’s sadly notorious Insein prison, Reporters Without Borders and the Burma Media Association said today. Since his arrest on 4 July 1989, he has been deprived of his basic rights, in particular, the right to receive proper medical treatment and the right to be able to write.Despite recent announcements that he would be included in the release of a number of detainees, the military junta did not free this respected intellectual, who is serving a 20-year prison sentence for various alleged offences including “anti-government propaganda.”Win Tin has had two heart attacks since he was imprisoned. For several years, the septuagenarian has had to spend frequent spells in a Rangoon hospital where a number of small rooms are reserved for prisoners.Reporters Without Borders and the Burma Media Association take actionReporters Without Borders activists today gave the Burmese ambassador to France symbolic birthday presents labelled “Pens”, “Medicine” and “Newspapers” – items which the Burmese authorities have denied Win Tin for the past 16 years.Burmese journalists and foreign correspondents met at the Foreign Correspondents Club in the Thai capital of Bangkok yesterday. They heard Zin Linn, one of Win Tin’s former fellow detainees, describe the man they call Saya, the Sage. They also heard Burmese reporter Khin Maung Win and British journalist Larry Jagan describe their experiences in Burma and the constraints under which the Burmese press has to work.A symbolic gift for Win Tin was also presented today during a press conference in the international tourism fair in Berlin by a representative of the German section of Reporters Without Borders. The Burma Media Association has devoted a special issue of its Burmese-language magazine Oodan entirely to Win Tin. It contains articles he wrote and tributes from Burmese writers and international figures.Reporters Without Borders has also produced a Win Tin poster that shows him behind bars and has the words: “Happy 75th Birthday to Win Tin, in prison for the past 16 years.” And the Reporters Without Borders website had made Win Tin the subject of its “Journalist in the news” special page, in English, French and Spanish.

Violence against journalists amid growing authoritarianism

first_img News January 20, 2014 – Updated on January 20, 2016 Violence against journalists amid growing authoritarianism UkraineEurope – Central Asia Update: Since the publication of this release, the reported number of journalists physically attacked during the clashes of 19 and 20 January has risen to 35.———Reporters Without Borders condemns the violent attacks on journalists during clashes between demonstrators and security forces which erupted in Kiev yesterday and which are continuing.At least 26 media personnel have so far been hurt while covering the protests and clashes. Most were injured by stun grenades, rubber bullets or other non-lethal projectiles. Fourteen of them said they were deliberately targeted by the security forces.“The deliberate attacks on media personnel are unacceptable and must be fully and impartially investigated,” Reporters Without Borders said. “We appeal to all parties to calm down and to respect news providers. Journalists arrested in connection with their work must be freed at once.“Last week’s attempt by the government to end the protests by adopting repressive legislation has clearly failed. The immediate repeal of these legislative measures, which show a complete contempt for civil society, is essential not only for the survival of Ukrainian democracy but also to defuse the current tension.”Reporters Without Borders added: “If the authorities fail to do this, they will give the impression of having deliberately chosen to make the overall situation much worse in order to seek political advantage.”The injured journalists include Vesti reporter Vyacheslav Veremiya and Spilno.tv cameraman Yanek Falkevich, who were hit in the face by stun grenades yesterday evening. Both could lose an eye.A member of the special forces aimed at 5 Kanal cameraman Ivan Nakonechny. It was thanks only to his camera that he was protected (see video below). A stun grenade deliberately aimed at Yevgeni Feldman, a photographer for the Moscow-based independent newspaper Novaya Gazeta, broke his nose. Freelance photographer Roman Pilipey was injured on the head by a brick thrown by a protester. September 7, 2020 Find out more Crimean journalist “confesses” to spying for Ukraine on Russian TV The complete list of injured journalists is available on the website of the Institute of Mass Information (IMI), a Ukrainian NGO that is a Reporters Without Borders partner.Three journalists were arrested this morning. Radio Free Europe / Radio Liberty reporter Dmytro Barkar and his cameraman Ihor Iskhakov were arrested as they were filming the clashes and were approaching the front line. Iskhakov was released but Barkar is still being held.Spilno.tv cameraman Volodymyr Karaguyar was briefly detained when he tried to buy gasoline for the generator he was using to charge his equipment. The police accused him of intending to make gasoline bombs.The extreme social polarization is affecting journalists. In the eastern region of Donetsk, employees of Novosti Donbassa, a news website that is actively covering the pro-European protests, said they had received many “unambiguous” threats on social networks.Oksana Romanyuk, who heads IMI and who is the Reporters Without Borders representative in Ukraine, was again described as a “foreign agent” – a synonym for a spy – by the state TV station UT1 last weekend.The latest wave of protests against President Viktor Yanukovych’s government was triggered by the sudden adoption of legislation on 16 January that drastically restricts fundamental freedoms.Around 200,000 protesters gathered in Kiev’s Independence Square yesterday in defiance of a ban on demonstrations. Several hundred of them then headed towards the parliament building, leading to violent clashes with police and special forces.Journalists wanting to cover these events will find security advice here.
