Salmon, Scallops And Paiche

Eating salmon increases your cardiovascular health. Salmon contains high levels of the omega-3 fats, EPA and DHA.  When eaten two to three times per week, salmon can protect you from problems such as heart attack, stroke, arrhythmia, high blood pressure and high triglycerides.

Scallops are the new power food. Scallops are more than 80 percent protein. One 3-ounce serving provides 20 grams of protein and just 95 calories. They’re also a good source of both magnesium and potassium.

Paiche a 6 oz. serving of Paiche contains the following nutrients

Calories 178 Sodium 1 mg
Total Fat 2 g Potassium 0 mg
Saturated 0 g Total Carbs 0 g

5 Year Anniversary

Thank you Cuenca Tech Life subscribers for challenging me to keep this blog an interesting time in my life and perhaps providing you with some interesting tech observations and predictions.

So what has changed since last year:

  • Only an educated guess but I think Cuenca now has about 7K expats
  • Smartphones continues to be the number one subject followed by photos
  • Fiber Optic is now cheaper than ever 50 mps for $60
  • The Tranvia is now 85% complete only a 23% increase since last year and predicted to open in Oct 2017 almost 2 years behind schedule
  • Ecuador will elect a new president today
  • I now am officially  a Fish Monger and you can see more of my product offering at this link
  • Google and Amazon introduced their new smart speakers (Google Home and Echo) and I predict they will be the next paradigm shift in technology. There are more than 13 million of these products in homes as of this writing.

The three most viewed posts are as follows:

Thank you again for viewing Cuenca Tech Life.
