    And if you need a snack for the road do soft boiled eggs. Put in boiling water for 6.5 minutes then cool quickly. Yolks are raw and the whites are 90-95% solid.

    It is good stuff, but probably don't want to eat too much. I also have a weakness, but try to stick with whole nuts to limit consumption.

    In agreement there. I eat high omega 3 salmon, sardines and oysters several times a week. If I had the money I would eat sashimi every day.
