I love this little fishy called Herring. I know the picture doesn't make it look like it's super tasty but trust me on this one honey, IT F#CKING IS!! I think they have the best Haring at the Utrechtsestraat/Prinsengracht, other than that, I think the staff there is always very nice and friendly and I just love to walk around in that neighbourhood! What I usually do in weekends is walk there starting with a delicious black coffee or dirty chai at the 'Koffie Salon' or 'Two for Joy' at the end of the Utrechtsestraat. Then walk slowly towards the herring-stall and enjoy it while looking over the canals of Amsterdam....OH I just really love Amsterdam..it's sooo beautiful, really this city surprises me every time again.. it's absolutely stunning in every way! Ok I got a little bit distracted.. I was talking about the Herring right?! Well scroll down as the herring is not only tasty but it's also super healthy for tha sexy body lol..
Why you should start eating Herring more often:
Herring is one of the very best food sources of vitamin D. Our bodies make this vitamin in sunlight, but in our climate, it's easy not to get enough. There seems to be more to vitamin D than strong teeth and bones. It's now thought that vitamin D deficiency might be a factor in many diseases, such as multiple sclerosis and diabetes.
Herring is loaded with EPA (eicosapentaenoic acid) and DHA (docosahexaenoic acid). These fatty acids help prevent heart disease and keep the brain functioning properly. They also seem to be effective in reducing inflammatory conditions, such as Crohn's disease and arthritis.
Well then.. a new lesson learned have we not?! lol oke have a good day bitches! Try to enjoy the view from where ever you may be...
