Why I eat a banana everyday!

Bananas are great sources of many nutrients. Bananas:

-Have ~350mg of potassium per serving, which helps to regulate the cardiovascular system
-Contain trace amounts of fat. The fat they do have belongs to the sterol family, which helps to control blood cholesterol
-Packs 3g of fiber. Soluble fiber helps to clean the digestive track, regulate carbohydrate conversion, and may lower the risk of heart disease
-Has the amino acid tryptophan, which the body uses to create serotonin. This chemical promotes a good mood
-Are low in terms of glycemic index
-Gives your body a quick burst of energy without feeling a comedown
-Contains ~43% of your daily needed B6. This water-soluble vitamin must be replenished daily, and is responsible for enabling antibody and red blood cell production, as well as regulating blood sugar levels

My favorite ways to eat a banana are plain, cut up in oatmeal, or frozen as part of a smoothie!

Something really wild was happening inside of me, too. I noticed that my whole body felt lighter. I was more vibrant and spunky. I felt my heart sort of opened a bit and my shoulders could relax, as if an overall softening had taken place. I no longer carried heavy Animal protein in my body, which takes tons of energy to digest. Plus, I didn’t have the heaviness of the suffering in me; frightened Animals produce lots of cortisol and adrenaline right before slaughter, and we can become stressed from eating Their Meat.

Liquid fast Day 18! I had prepped my fruits for a juice and my husband comes in saying I got juice. I was like why you buying juice when we can make them! He then said there was a sale on these juices at Kroger. The juices are actually good. As we mentioned in our raw on a budget video. Don’t sleep on grocery stores like Kroger. They are always having sales on the organic and healthier stuff bc no one buys them.
