1Zumba, Octopus 9 Brains?

Thank you for being here with us today, dear friends and readers. From the US, Slovenia, Venezuela, Germany, India, Peru, Canada, n Philippines, we absolutely appreciate coming to us 😉

My dear 1Zumba friends, here’s the question no. 63 for our competition:

1Z-Q63

Then, here’s the dish we recommend for you to have for a change. I know some of you would say “What?” Octopus Plate? Yes, octopus can make a good dish, full of flavor, and delicious to eat. If you like to try new cuisine, just try to order this. You’d find only in very special restaurants.

Some of its plates look like these:

Josie's Ristorante, Boynton Beach

The colors of each ingredient in that octopus plate, practically jumped off the plate — but the taste is just as phenomenal. A generous portion of grilled octopus would be laid atop a bed of celery leaves, potatoes, and cherry tomatoes, all simply dressed in lemon and a gorgeously rich and smooth romesco sauce. It got an A++ in my book and I’d happily eat it multiple times in a row. It’s up there among my top 3 favorite octopus dishes, and that’s a hard title to capture.

But wait a minute, there is one new fact that was discovered recently about octopus:

1Z-octopus Brain
An octopus has three hearts, nine brains, and blue blood. Two hearts pump blood to the gills, while a third circulates it to the rest of the body. The nervous system includes a central brain and a large ganglion at the base of each arm which controls movement. Their blood contains the copper-rich protein hemocyanin, which is more efficient than hemoglobin for oxygen transport at very low temperatures and low oxygen concentrations.

Therefore, when someone, now, tells you that you are like an octopus, it would be praise, most probably, if she had that new piece of info about it.

Let’s talk some more, after a short break. Stay cool, and take good care of yourself. Kisses ❤
