This smoothie list is bananas, B•A•N•A•N•A•S !!  🍌 🍌🍌

Featuring 10 banana based smoothie recipes hand-picked from the Green Blenders' compilation of 73 banana-friendly smoothies

Bananas are nutrition powerhouses

In addition to providing for the perfect texture of any smoothie and supporting those of us on set diets to either lose weight or gain weight, bananas are an excellent source of numerous amounts of healing nutrients like minerals (such as potassium, copper, selenium, magnesium, molybdenum and boron), vitamins, amino acids, antioxidants and other phytonutrients.  Bananas are also full of fiber, water and pulp, too, aiding us in suppressing and satisfying our appetites.  And, as Anthony William of Medical Medium alludes to in his book Life-Changing Foods, bananas are one of Nature's gifts for our digestive system, even known to reverse bodily conditions like IBS, Crohn's Disease and Colitis.  Whether eaten raw from the peel, blended up in a smoothie, chopped with your kale or what-have-you, enjoy your bananas and the healing powers they pass along with their pleasurably unique taste and conveniently soothing digestive benefits.

Since when did cheating ever become OK?

Since when did cheating ever become OK?

Calling the cheat day for what it is, an utter disgrace to (and dismembering from) our very own selves

That's what she said

The idea for this article stemmed from a conversation I had while providing some natural weight loss consulting when the young lady who I was helping said to me that she "only cheated on the weekends."  Sure, we've all heard (and likely used) a somewhat similar phrase ourselves before but, when she told me that, my mind immediately drew attention to the exact words and I replied asking her, "so, to clarify, you only dishonor your self and fill your body with garbage two days each week?"  We both remained silent for a moment and I waited for her reply before speaking again.  After the words settled in with her accompanying thoughts, she mumbled something back along the lines of, "Wowww, I never thought of it like that." 

The Liver and Gallbladder Cleanse by Andreas Moritz

The Liver and Gallbladder Cleanse by Andreas Moritz

A glimpse of healthy eating (and living) with, The Liver and Gallbladder Miracle Cleanse: An All-Natural, At-Home Flush to Purify and Rejuvenate Your Body

Liver & Gallbladder Miracle Cleanse

One of the first self-health books that I read, The Liver and Gallbladder Miracle Cleanse was an easy to follow, eye-opening book that drove me to dig deeper and learn more about natural, self-health lifestyle practices (and even Ayurveda, too).  I still continue to recommend this book to my loved ones, always telling them that even if they don't want to try and do the cleanse, they should still consider reading it for the plethora of knowledge and/or insights that this book provides. The author of the book, Andreas Moritz, has since passed on from this this life but he continues to be well known and revered as a self health maven that inspired (and still inspires) change in many lives of those who have the chance to learn from him.  If you're looking for something new to read about natural health and healthy eating, this book is a wonderful choice for you to pick up and learn from.
