METABOLISM BOOSTERS: if you’re struggling to lose weight, no matter how much you exercise, no matter how healthy you’re eating and you just don’t seem to be getting the results you feel you deserve, then there’s a chance it’s due to the actual healthy food choices you’re eating. 

There are actually a selection of foods that aid the metabolism and prevent fat storage:

Jyn and Cassian-♒️

Cooking/Food Head Canon

The only reason Jyn’s not a better cook is lack of experience not lack of talent. Years on the run and living in and out of new bunkers and headquarters built into the side of mountains and on desert planets meant ration bars; hard-tack bread and crackers; canteens of warm, stale water; and if she was lucky, dried fruit or salty strips of dried jerky of whatever meat was available.

But she remembers her mother’s home cooking. Fish stews rich with broth and the cold-weather root vegetables of Lah’mu seasoned with local herbs and the smoky volcanic salt of the last planet she called home. She dreams sometimes of the sweet honey cakes of her childhood on Coruscant when Mama and Papa would have important guests over to their apartment, and how she’d get one all to herself and would lick the stickiness off of her fingers.

But when she is given time and a larder worth tinkering with, she tries to learn. Rebels aren’t gourmets by any stretch, so she goes to the repository of information that will best serve her needs—even if K2SO blinks his disdainful light orbs at her and asks why. But he knows exactly why and after a few knowing little comments, accesses the holonet for recipes and techniques and then his own memory banks for information about Cassian’s favorite meals and flavors, though neither ever say his name aloud.


Cassian has a preference for foods with a hint of bitterness—slivers of dark chocolate, crisp winter melons sliced and cooked with a little bit of meat, and leafy greens with a peppery bite. It was his palette back on Fest, and the tastes of home have never left him even though he left that world a lifetime ago.

He’s had a taste of the feast of the wealthy though. Being undercover allowed for such luxuries. But the richness of those foods turns his stomach. His whole life has been lean years, and he is sensitive to too much sugar and fat. “Your body is too pure,” Jyn says as she rubs his back in comfort after he’s had to spend a week infiltrating Imperial party after party. “Most people would kill for the opportunity to eat like you have.”

“Well, eating like this is going to kill me,” he heaves, and she lays him down on his bed and presses a cool washcloth to his face, not hiding the fondness on her face for once.

WISH FISH

The list of swimmy babies I would like keeps growing, because nothing I want is compatible with anything I have.

TANK 1: Axolotl. My biggest freshwater tank will house three or four axolotl, all different colors. I want one so bad.

TANK 2: Dwarf pea puffer. I love their little tiny bodies and huge eyes and downright betta-ness. I would name her Penny.

TANK 3: CRUSTACEAN TANK. I am dying to convert the frogs’ tank to a crustacean tank once I upgrade them. Orange sakura shrimp, Amano shrimp, ghost shrimp, Thai micro crabs, and freshwater pom pom crabs.

TANK 4: I don’t even care if anything else goes in their tank or what that anything else is, I just want kuhli/dojo loaches. I love the noodles.

NOT PICTURED: Koi. I would love a koi pond, if I ever got a house with enough land.

RICH FISH
These animals fall under the category “when I start making a lot of money, have my own house, and have a huge amount of space,” because they are all saltwater fish, they all require a lot of space, and their care is more specialized.

TANK 5: Seahorses. I love seahorses and always have. These delicate tiny babies have been a dream of mine since I was a little girl. They do not always do well in captivity, so they will surely test my “good with animals”-ness.

TANK 6: Snowflake eel. I love the little noodles. I know they’re a popular wish fish on here and one of the users here even has one.

TANK 7: Epaulette shark, aka walking shark. One of my LFS has one and I always drift towards the saltwater section to watch her. This tank straddles the line between wish fish and pipe dream - I would need a lot of time, space (in my home and in the tank), and money to make it work.

Greek Mythology Series | Powerful Couples

Amphitrite & Poseidon

Poseidon is the God of the Sea, Earthquakes, Floods, Droughts & Horses. He is the son to the Titans Cronus (Time) & Rhea (Fertility & Motherhood). When Poseidon was born, he and his siblings were swallowed by their father. However, his brother Zeus received aid from Metis, who gave him an elixir that would cause Cronus to disgorge his siblings. This event caused the war against the Titans, led by Poseidon and his brothers Hades and Zeus. The Cyclopes created a magical trident for Poseidon during the war which helped aid them to victory. They trapped the Titans into the Pit of Tartarus. After the war, the three brothers took to the cosmos to draw their lots for who would rule the realms. Zeus won Olympus, Hades won the Underworld, & Poseidon won the sea. Thus, he became the King of the Sea. 

Amphitrite is one of the fifty Nymph Nereids. She the the daughter to Nereus (Old Man of the Sea & Rich Bounty of Fish) & a Nymph named Doris. She also may be the daughter to Pontos, but that is a less common myth. Amphitrite is the Goddess of the Sea, Mother of Fish, Seals & Dolphins. 

Amphitrite refused Poseidons’ hand in marriage and hid from him near Atlas in an ocean stream at the far end of the earth. It wasn’t until Delphin, the Dolphin God, tracked her down and convinced her to marry Poseidon. She then married Poseidon and became the Queen of the Sea. Together they gave birth to Triton (Sea), Rhode (Of the Aegean island of Rhodes), Cymopoleia (Violent Storm Waves) & Benthesicyme (Waves). 

I Remember The Day I was in Yaffa - أذكر يوما كنت في يافا
I Remember The Day I was in Yaffa - أذكر يوما كنت في يافا

Song: I Remember The Day I was in Yaffa [Jaffa] - أذكر يوما كنت في يافا

[Rough Translation]

I remember the day I was in Yaffa,
[O please tell us, tell us more about Yaffa]
and my sails were in the port of Yaffa.
[O the days of fishing in Yaffa]
The sea has called upon us in the early morning, and we prepared our sails.
[O we could see/imagine it, O how much we now yearn for Yaffa]

On dawn we set off,
and we wandered in the sea until we lost sight of the shore.
[Was the sea rich of fish?]
We were indeed rich of it.
From sunrise to sunset,
we wandered in the water.

But when the night creeped in, [O that Night!]
The viscous winds hit us. [O on that Night!]
O it was a rash storm, and the waters reached the skies.
[O that storm comes across like cruel bandits!]
We lowered our mast, and held tightly to our paddles,
We paddled and paddled around, and death was looming above us!
We fought the angry waves, and dug our way through the sea,
And our hands would pull hard and harder,
and our boat would pull and pull through.

But at one point, we said we are lost,
We are doomed, in this cold hell.

But as the morning and its winds returned,
We returned with the wind.
And we entered Yaffa’s port
[O how great it is to be back in Yaffa]
And we beautified the shore with seashells,
[O the sweetest days are in Yaffa]

Though the winds were striking and wailing at us,
We yelled “O We will return to Yaffa!”
[And today, though the winds are striking and wailing at us,
and we yell that We will return to Yaffa.] 

And We will return! We will return to Yaffa!
[And We will return! We will return to Yaffa!]
And We will return! We will return to Yaffa!
[And We will return! We will return to Yaffa!]
