Why #bananas are good for us #benefits of bananas Claire Samuel

When I arrived in the island of Djerba, Tunisia, I tasted the best mandarins ever. However, bananas do not grow in Djerba. For the first time in many years, I spend several days without eating any bananas. I have to admit I was quite hungry during these first days. I did not have any avocado either. After a quick trip to Houmt Souk, I came back with more than twenty delicious bananas and a generous quantity of Tunisian dates. Oh boy did it made a difference to my well-being! Suddenly, my digestion was back to normal, I had more energy and my mood lifted.

Bananas are not only absolutely delicious and sweet, but our body benefits greatly from their nutritional gems. One is lutein, an antioxidant which protect our eyes. The second is potassium, which helps magnesium to be better absorbed by the body.

 

Why I stopped #intermittent #fasting or one meal a day?

Why I stopped #intermittent #fasting or one meal a day? Claire Samuel

I love doing one big meal a day. It helps me gain more energy and improves my digestion. However, I refuse to do intermittent fasting when it does more harm than good. Thus, I do not fast when I have my periods. I honor this precious inward time. Moreover, if my life becomes stressful for one reason or another, I do not add another constraint by fasting when I am hungry. Many times, I am hungry just because I am tired. Lastly, I refuse to fast when my habits are reset, for instance if I am on holiday without the raw food I am used to. Then, I take care of myself by eating what I can find and taking the time I need to source organic raw food.
