Note for diabetics: Physical activity has significant effect on blood sugar levels. Therefore, it is important to stabilise blood sugar before exercise.

Aerobic (with oxygen) or cardiovascular exercise:
Some muscle fibres need little glucose and a lot of oxygen. They can move small loads for long periods of time.
Example: jogging, walking, relaxing cycling, etc.

Simple Recipe: Fish, Eggs, Avocado

I always look for ways to include more than lean meat in my diet: organ meat, bones etc.

Today's simple recipe:

1. Fish with egg yolk: tiny silver fish (whole: with bones and eyeballs) and 2 egg yolks stir-fried in butter (add salt and pepper).
2. Eat with avocado.

The fish is really delicious, much more satisfying when eyeballs and bones are included.

Choco recently made his annual visit to the vet. Nothing remarquable, his weight is almost the same (from 7.3 kg last year, to 7.25 kg this year), no diseases, obesity or plaque deposit on his teeth. Here is his health booklet (sorry it's in French):

This is because his food is this for the past few years: whole animals raw or cooked.

Since Choco feast on animals, he doesn't kill the birds any more.

A few days ago, to celebrate Easter, Choco received a "dog treat" (bought from a pet store) by a well-meaning person. Choco smelled it and just covered it with urine.

Enjoy your bones Choco!

(First episode about Choco: Sick Pets)

A little update on Choco. He is enjoying the bones of a whole chicken (leftover from a grilled chicken bought at the local market). These bones are obviously cooked, Choco has no problem digesting them.

Many years ago, Choco's vet warned the owners about the inability of a small dog digesting bones, saying that the bones would poke Choco's digestive system.
