Looks like I'll be eating less salt.
 
My blood pressure is great, no worries there but apparently excessive salt intake brings plenty of other problems that are only just beginning to be understood:

 

A New Connection between the Gut and Brain

A surprising way that diet leads risks of stroke and cognitive impairment
...
 
...over the last decade, studies across human populations have reported the association between salt intake and stroke irrespective of high blood pressure and risk of heart disease, suggesting a missing link between salt intake and brain health.
 
Interestingly, there is a growing body of work showing that there is communication between the gut and brain, now commonly dubbed the gut–brain axis. The disruption of the gut–brain axis contributes to a diverse range of diseases, including Parkinson’s disease and irritable bowel syndrome. Consequently, the developing field of gut–brain axis research is rapidly growing and evolving. Five years ago, a couple of studies showed that high salt intake leads to profound immune changes in the gut, resulting in increased vulnerability of the brain to autoimmunity—when the immune system attacks its own healthy cells and tissues by mistake, suggesting that perhaps the gut can communicate with the brain via immune signaling.
 
Now, new research shows another connection: immune signals sent from the gut can compromise the brain’s blood vessels, leading to deteriorated brain heath and cognitive impairment. Surprisingly, the research unveils a previously undescribed gut–brain connection mediated by the immune system and indicates that excessive salt might negatively impact brain health in humans through impairing the brain’s blood vessels regardless of its effect on blood pressure.

Well I decided to let this small doe go just now. Not enough meat worth the killing and skinning. I'm done with school tho so hopefully I'll get her boyfriend before January 31dcb0523b9aec050d7431cdbc30d913.jpg171819f996a3eb0984cbc51c096c18e4.jpgf882707360c875401e9114a4da856de6.jpg

@rockyfungus so I set up the frame for the greenhouse before I went out hunting. I am gonna try to mod that frame to this 20x12 starting place. I'm excited man I can grow easily all year here if I do. Hopefully it helps my gut and brain hehe. I really want to focus on preserving it this year like I said. Itll be a bit before I get started tho I'm just prepping it. 611766a338de3a5483fc36c56106b2ad.jpg

Nice, look forward to your updates on the greenhouse.

I need to get back into hunting, was looking at a bow for a minute wanting to get back into archery. Rifles are just so much easier, but there's something way more satisfying about using a recurve.

 

Anyone else see diet have a huge impact on their mental well-being?

Not sure what I ate, been trying to be good about my diet. Struggling really bad today with IBS/depression. For me diet has a huge impact on my mind/gut.

Yes I do think diet has an impact on mood and mental state etc as well as physical. At times I have moments of bad judgement and think I need a meatloaf or some good ole ground beef chuck whatever I make. I usually get the meat sweats followed by stomach aches and a bitchy pissed off attitude. I don't on know why. Just happens. I think my body metabolized the chemicals and ecoli etc faster than normal and that brings physiological symptoms as well as an emotional surge of negative energy.

Bows are wsup. But u gotta be a really skilled hunter to actually make it happen. Then there is the possibility of lamimg the animal and its a pain in the ass to track all that jazz. I enjoy shooting my bows but don't really want to hunt with one unless I had to.

This will make you want to become a better archer.

So I checked my food journal, ground turkey is out. Always have a really bad flare up from ground turkey. This time we tried some bougie brand from costco.

That doe brought the buck today. Medium sized white tail with some broke ass antlers. I'd post a pic but idk if it would make anyone uneasy. Super cool tho that makes 2 for me this season.
He weighed out at 116.5lb. I'll take that for the freezer I only have until January so gotta get it.

Man I missing living in Penn's woods. Had plenty of opportunity with city deer that I felt like I could just lure them into a pot of boiling water...they were so docile/fearless.

Nice job '69, that'll take up some space in the freezer for sure.  Do you turn your scraps into sausage, or go more for ground venison?

I remember as a boy helping mom process deer in the kitchen.  I got to crank the old cast iron meat grinder while she fed meat chunks, and pork fat into the hopper.  Then plastic wrap, butcher paper and tape, next it was marked with contents, and date using a grease pencil, and lastly into the freezer it would go.

 

We never made our own sausage, so we didn't get it much growing up.  Scraps worth keeping got turned into burger, and those that weren't got fed to the hogs.

 

..... fond memories of times long gone.

Some deer loin. Red and green pepper onion Quinoa and rice. Got some more done on the greenhouse today. Been taking my time with that but its ok I'm starting early this year. I'm eatin that. Hopefully I'll be growing some awesome vegetables this year we shall see.2aad759b356d16cf663b9b7992746362.jpg55b3696423378f8999a9a84134bf6e96.jpg17e81078ceb36058c9d0a16390b06a1c.jpg
Would def prepare the quinoa in a smaller saucepan next go tho. Was my first time cooking that tricky grain. Shallow saucepan for that tho it be smooth sailing I think.
Not bad for a salvaged frame.i can dig it. If I need to make adjustments I will. I'm excited tho. Hope it'll get me a earlier start gardening this year. I guess I'd put my future pics here i usually get a real good August harvest. d1a0c2bc689da7045dfcde2a011eec8f.jpg
