The Power of Bananas

banana
If you get hungry mid-day, a banana is the best snack at your desk, after a workout, or in between classes.
(Mark Samuelsson)

Have you ever wondered what the secret behind Curious George’s extreme energy was or why the man with the Big Yellow hat never quite figured it out? The secret was right under Curious George’s nose. A Banana!!!

Bananas are known as one of the worlds healthiest foods. They’re nutritious, hearty, filling and beneficial. Not to mention, there cheap and easy to tote around thanks to there cool yellow packaging. And because of that packaging, bananas do not appear on the Environmental Working Groups (EWG) dirty dozen. Meaning it’s not necessary to buy them organic!!!

I can see I’ve just peaked your interest. Well then, Let take a little look, shall we…

Egg-cellent Food

eggs
Eggs, Eggs, Eggs.
How do you like your Eggs?
White ones,
Brown ones,
Beat ones,
Boiled ones,
Scrambled ones,
or Over easy ones?

Or, are you one of the ones that feel like eggs are your guilty pleasure, due to all the bad press they seem to get?

Well feel guilty no more. I was doing some research and I found out that eggs are actually considered a superfood! Whaaaaaat?!!!! I know, that’s exactly what I said.

So, of course I had to do more research and I ended up coming across an article that talked about a women name Emma Morano, who credited her 115 years to raw eggs and staying single (We’ll just concentrate on the eggs part for now, lol.)

Carrots

Hey Guys! Lets talk Carrots!!!

Not the carats that we associate with the size of a wedding ring or a just-because-gift, but the one that’s long, orange, and is the root of a plant that is eaten as a vegetable…the one that Bugs Bunny loved. Yeah, that’s the one. CARROTS!

Here’s a little fun fact – For the most part, we think of carrots as being only orange, but they can also be white, yellow, red, and even purple.

Did you know that people first grew carrots for medicine, and not food, to combat a variety of ailments? And the reason for that is because of something called beta-carotene–a yellow/orange pigment that gives fruits and vegetables its vibrant colors. But, to take beta-carotene a little further, when it enters the body, its converted into vitamin A; which is needed for healthy skin, our immune system, and for the health of our eyes and vision.

So come with me and lets take a ride into the wonderful world of carrots!

The Wonders of Cinnamon
