MOSHI MOSHI MARCH
This month there are three wonderful stories on our ocean s from three very different perspectives one is from Fish4Ever who have made a 2 minute video on why choosing fish from small scale fishers is important, the other from the Sustainable Food Trust on eating well for ourselves and the planet, and lastly we follow the voyage of 14 intrepid women as they raced across the Atlantic researching plastic and toxic pollution as they sailed.
The Sustainable Food Trust
The chart here is from 1943 and was developed by the United States Department of Agriculture (USDA) to promote seven food groups that experts at the time felt Americans should consume to get their recommended nutrients. During the depression era in the US, under-nutrition was a big concern. Four decades later, the concern would morph to that of obesity, propelled by highly processed foods and the overuse of sugary sweeteners. The 'Basic 7' chart is easy to read and, in theory, easy to practice eat green vegetables, fruits in various colors, cheese, milk, eggs and bread. Oh yeah, and eat butter. Moshi Moshi contributed to the discussions about fish click here to read the article.

We love Fish4Ever. This is what others say about them:
"I'm a big fan of tinned fish, from sardines to mackerel, and it's great to be able to buy it with a clean conscience."
"A world leader in sustainable and equitable sourcing of tuna."
And this is why we love them a two minute video on why we should all be choosing fish from small boats:
That's all from me, but I'd love to hear from you if you have any comments on the menu or a recent experience.
