Quote from “Signs You’re Not Getting Enough Protein”

I was asking about what signs could indicate protein deficiency yesterday, 4/7/2019, and the daily mail from Time magazine appears in my email Inbox today.
Quote from “Signs You’re Not Getting Enough Protein” on https://www.webmd.com/diet/ss/slideshow-not-enough-protein-signs?ecd=wnl_chl_040719_REMAIL&ctr=wnl-chl-040719-REMAIL_nsl-Bodymodule_Position2&mb=WYQVza0sEXokrko1%40IKOxShonS%2fH3cwyXPseqP5xtN0%3d:
. How Much [protein] Do You Need? You should get a minimum of 10% of your daily calories from protein. (For a target of grams, multiply your weight in pounds by 0.36.) And you want it from a variety of sources throughout the day: A tub of low-fat Greek yogurt for breakfast has about 20 grams; a serving of skinless chicken breast at lunch, about 25 grams; and a cup of black beans in your dinner, about 15 grams. Your body breaks down and reuses the protein in many ways.
. Swelling One of the most common signs that you’re not getting enough protein is swelling (also called edema), especially in your abdomen, legs, feet, and hands. A possible explanation: The proteins that circulate in your blood — albumin, in particular — help keep fluid from building up in your tissues. But many things can cause edema, so be sure to check with your doctor in case it’s more serious.
. Mood Changes. Hair, Nail, and Skin Problems. Weakness and Fatigue. Hunger. Slow-Healing Injuries: People who are low on protein often find their cuts and scrapes take longer to get better. The same seems to be true of sprains and other exercise-related mishaps. It could be another effect of your body not making enough collagen. It’s found in connective tissues as well as your skin. To make blood clot, you need proteins, too.
. Getting or Staying Sick. Who Might Come Up Short? Most Americans get plenty of protein. People who don’t get enough usually have an overall poor diet. Elderly people and people with cancer may have trouble eating as much protein as they need.
. What About Athletes? If you exercise regularly and eat a balanced diet, you’re probably fine. But serious athletes with strenuous training schedules do need more protein — about twice as much as the average person, or roughly 0.5-1 gram of protein for every pound of body weight each day. Don’t overdo it though. Too much protein can also cause problems.

Quote「浮生千山路」歌詞:

小溪春深處 
秦觀《好事近》:春路雨添花,花動一山春色。行到小溪深處,有黃鸝千百。飛雲當面化龍蛇,夭矯轉空碧。醉臥古藤陰下,了不知南北。

萬千碧柳蔭  
周邦彥《蘭陵王》:柳蔭直,煙裡絲絲弄碧。隋堤上,曾見幾番,拂水飄綿送行色。登臨望故國,誰識?京華倦客?長亭路,年來歲去,應折柔條過千尺。閒尋舊踪跡,又酒趁哀弦,燈映離席。梨花榆火催寒食。愁一箭風快,半篙波暖,回頭迢遞便數驛,望人在天北。淒側,恨堆積,漸別浦縈迴,津堠岑寂。斜陽冉冉春無極,記月榭攜手,露橋聞笛,沈思前事,似夢裡,淚暗滴。

不記來時路
秦觀《點絳唇》:醉漾輕舟,信流引到花深處。塵緣相誤,無計花間住。煙水茫茫,千里斜陽暮。山無數,亂紅如雨,不記來時路。

心托明月
齊瀚《樂府詩集卷四十二相和歌辭長門怨》:煢煢孤思逼,寂寂長門夕。妾妒亦非深,君恩那不惜。攜琴就玉階,調悲聲未諧。將心托明月,流影入君懷。

誰家今夜扁舟子
張若虛《春江花月夜》:誰家今夜扁舟子?何處相思明月樓。

長溝流月去
陳與義《臨江仙》:憶昔午橋橋上飲,坐中多是豪英。長溝流月去無聲。杏花疏影裡,吹笛到天明。二十馀年如一夢,此身雖在堪驚。閒登小閣看新晴。古今多少事,漁唱起三更。

煙樹滿晴川
韋應物《登寶意寺上方舊遊》 :翠嶺香台出半天,萬家煙樹滿晴川。諸僧近住不相識,坐聽微鐘記往年。

獨立人無語
晏幾道《臨江仙》夢後樓台高鎖,酒醒簾幕低垂。去年春恨卻來時。落花人獨立,微雨燕雙飛。記得小蘋初見,兩重心字羅衣,琵琶弦上說相思。當時明月在,曾照彩雲歸。

驀然回首
辛棄疾《青玉案》:東風夜放花千樹,更吹落、星如雨。寶馬雕車香滿路。鳳簫聲動,玉壺光轉,一夜魚龍舞。蛾兒雪柳黃金縷,笑語盈盈暗香去。眾裡尋他千百度。驀然回首,那人卻在,燈火闌珊處。

紅塵猶有未歸
人徐熥《寄弟》:春風送客翻愁客,客路逢春不當春。寄語鶯聲休便老,天涯猶有未歸人。

春遲遲燕子天涯
《詩經•小雅•出車》 :……春日遲遲,卉木萋萋。倉庚喈喈,采蘩祁祁……張炎《清平樂》:採芳人杳,頓覺遊情少。客裡看春多草草,總被詩愁分了。去年燕子天涯,今年燕子誰家?三月休聽夜雨,如今不是催花。

草萋萋少年人老
楚辭淮南小山《招隱士》:王孫遊兮不歸,春草生兮萋萋。唐•崔顥《黃鶴樓》“晴川歷歷漢陽樹,芳草萋萋鸚鵡洲

水悠悠繁華已過了 人間咫尺千山路
王維《終南別業》中歲頗好道,晚家南山陲。興來每獨往,勝事空自知。行到水窮處,坐看雲起時。偶然值林叟,談笑無還期

行到水窮處 坐看雲起時 
維《終南別業》中歲頗好道,晚家南山陲。興來每獨往,勝事空自知。 行到水窮處,坐看雲起時。偶然值林叟,談笑無還期

涼淨風恬 
鄭板橋《山市晴嵐》雨淨又風恬,山翠新添。薰蒸上接蔚藍天。惹得王孫芳草色,醞釀春田。 朝景尚拖煙,日午澄鮮。小橋山店倍增妍。近到略無些色相,遠望依然。

涼淨風恬 人間依舊 細數浮生千萬緒
晏殊《木蘭花》:燕鴻過後鶯歸去,細算浮生千萬緒

Lyrics in Traditional Chinese (作詞:李安修    作曲:陳耀川):

我有花一朵 種在我心中 含苞待放意幽幽
朝朝與暮暮 我切切地等候 有心的人來入夢

女人花 搖曳在紅塵中 女人花 隨風輕輕擺動
只盼望 有一雙溫暖手 能撫慰 我內心的寂寞

我有花一朵 花香滿枝頭 誰來真心尋芳蹤
花開不多時啊堪折直須折 女人如花花似夢

我有花一朵 長在我心中 真情真愛無人懂
遍地的野草已佔滿了山坡 孤芳自賞最心痛

女人花 搖曳在紅塵中 女人花 隨風輕輕擺動
只盼望 有一雙溫柔手 能撫慰 我內心的寂寞

女人花 搖曳在紅塵中 女人花 隨風輕輕擺動
若是你 聞過了花香濃 別問我 花兒是為誰紅

愛過知情重 醉過知酒濃 花開花謝終是空
緣份不停留 像春風來又走 女人如花花似夢
緣份不停留 像春風來又走 女人如花花似夢 女人如花花似夢

Lyrics:

齊豫-祝我幸福+雪落下的聲音 祝我幸福 作詞:施立 作曲:陳小霞 雪落下的聲音 作詞:于正 作曲:陸虎 滿天星星在眨眼 他陪在我身邊 輕聲細語溫柔的眼 看著我的臉 一枚戒指在我眼前 是他的諾言 愛我永遠 山頂上的微風吹 心跟著四處飛 為了什麽掉眼淚 夜色那麽美 一段回憶翻箱倒櫃 跟著我在追 想的是誰 我很幸福 真的幸福 卻渴望得到你的祝福 從今以後 牽他的手 心為何逗留 我很快樂 真的快樂 卻還是覺得依依不捨 他的肩膀 給我力量 才能將你放 我慢慢地聽 雪落下的聲音 閉著眼睛幻想它不會停 你沒辦法靠近 絕不是太薄情 只是貪戀窗外好風景 我慢慢地品 雪落下的聲音 仿佛是你貼著我叫卿卿 睜開了眼睛 漫天的雪無情 誰來賠這一生好光景 我很幸福 真的幸福 卻渴望得到你的祝福 從今以後 牽他的手 心為何逗留 我很快樂 真的快樂 卻還是覺得依依不捨 他的肩膀 給我力量 才能將你放 好想聽到你說 祝你幸福 只想聽到你說 祝你幸福

A song in Mandarin: Friend, Don’t cry 朋友别哭 吕方

朋友别哭 吕方 https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=AT2oBMEhMnc

Lyrics:

有沒有一扇窗 能讓你不絕望 看一看花花世界 原來像夢一場 有人哭 有人笑 有人輸有人老 到結局 還不是一樣

朋友別哭 我依然是你心靈的歸宿 朋友別哭 要相信自己的路 紅塵中有太多 茫然痴心的追逐 你的苦 我也有感觸

有沒有一種愛 能讓你不受傷 這些年 堆積多少對你的知心話 這麼酒醒不了 什麼痛忘不掉 向前走 就不可能回頭望

朋友別哭 我依然是你心靈的歸宿 朋友別哭 要相信自己的路 紅塵中有太多 茫然痴心的追逐 你的苦 我也有感觸

朋友別哭 我一直在你心靈最深處 朋友別哭 我陪你就不孤獨 人海中難得有 幾個真正的朋友 這份情請 你不要不在乎 人海中難得有 幾個真正的朋友 這份情請 你不要不在 乎

. NO NIGHTSHADE FAMILY

There is a lot of anecdotal evidence that dogs do not do well on tomatoes, potatoes, peppers, and eggplant – the nightshade family. Unless someone does further research, we are left to claims that these veggies and dogs do not do well together. While I haven’t seen any practical evidence of dogs getting poisoned by tomatoes or their “cousins”, the leaves of these plants are definitely toxic.

. BROCCOLI, CABBAGE OR CAULIFLOWER MYTH OR REALITY?

Some sources claim that the cruciferous family may increase the chances of hypothyroidism – a condition represented by low thyroid gland hormone. We also call these plants goitrogenic. I must confess that I have tried to stay away from these when feeding Skai, only because I am not sure if these claims are valid or not. I would love to hear from anyone who knows of a study confirming this claim.I recommend either staying away from these veggies or feeding them in small quantities. Once again, when you are unsure, go with the lowest possible risk. There are plenty of other vegetables that are definitely safe.

Just being able to feel the love is already a fortunate thing in ones life. Listening to this quiet piano music

Just being able to feel the love is already a fortunate thing in ones life; I am not sure whether love can be got from a Buddhist’s view. Quiet piano music for me to play while it is raining like in these recent few weeks in February and March 2019: “Beautiful Piano Music 24/7: Study Music, Relaxing Music, Sleep Music, Meditation Music” on https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=y7e-GC6oGhg
