Malekhu ko Maachaa - (मलेखुको माछा)
Sampling delicious fried fish of Malekhu
Malekhu is a scenic sleepy little village located about halfway between #Kathmandu to #Pokhara . It is a pleasant, 3-hour drive from Kathmandu on the #PrithiviHighway , which overlooks the Trishuli river. On the #journey , you pass through many rural villages, and can obtain a snapshot of the authentic gaau-ghar lifestyle while #surrounded by #breathtaking vistas of the river and the mountains.
#Malekhu is #famous for its just-caught fresh fish served deep-#fried , #smoked , and curried with #Nepali spices by a number of road-side #restaurants , all served with zero pretense. Local buses usually stop at Malekhu for lunch breaks for the travelers, and they enjoy shopping for a variety of fried fish, smoked river fish in wooden skewers, and locally #grown fruits, vegetables and beans, lentils and peas. If you have never heard or tried #Malekhu ko Maa Chaa, you are missing out a special treat of #Nepal .

Several large population studies now link greater consumption of processed #meats with increased risk of type 2 diabetes. #Processedmeats are those that are salted, cured or #smoked , or contain preservatives (such as nitrite- or nitrate-based products). Common examples of processed #meat in the #UnitedStates are #bacon , #sausage , #hotdogs , canned meats and ham. Risk of type 2 diabetes increases with #overweight , so processed meats that are high in calories could explain part of the link to #diabetes risk. However, even after adjusting for weight and some other aspects of eating habits, people who consume the most processed meat show from 20 to over 60 percent greater risk of developing type 2 diabetes compared to those who ate the least. That translates to about a 20 to 30 percent increase in risk for each 2-ounce daily serving, equal to about one regular #hotdog .
Researchers say that #nitrosamine compounds that form within our #gut from #nitrite -based #preservatives may not only increase #cancer risk, they may also damage the cells of the #pancreas responsible for producing #insulin . Many processed meats are high in saturated #fat , which is linked with development of insulin resistance, meaning insulin is less effective in controlling blood #sugar . Another potential explanation for the diabetes link involves formation of compounds called Advanced Glycation Endproducts (AGEs) that happens during processing and in home or #restaurant#cooking . AGEs seem to increase low-grade #inflammation and oxidative #stress and may promote insulin resistance, all together producing a metabolic environment that can lead to type 2 diabetes. At some point, research may clarify whether certain types of processed meats – like those made from #chicken or with lower fat – pose less risk than others. For now, however, because processed meats are linked with colorectal cancer, type 2 diabetes and #heart#disease , avoiding them (or saving them for special occasions) really does make sense.
