Banana Bread or a Banana Smooth: You Choose!

Just yesterday, one of my star clients (you’re all stars, truly) ‘confessed’ that she’d had some very ripe bananas in the house, and so she ‘had’ to make banana bread. Whoa! “HAD TO?” Make “Banana Bread?” And then … eat it, of course.
As you can well imagine, this led to an amazingly rich (on many levels) and potassium filled conversation. We were able to discuss love of food; food and its relationship to family and so much more. (Thank you, dear client, for your courage! For being so open and honest and willing to ‘let go’ of the banana cake!)
On a practical level, we also wondered … what else might someone do with over ripe bananas???
My suggestion: toss (gracefully) overly ripe bananas into your freezer. Then, when you are whipping up your favorite smoothie recipe, you can use one of your icy bananas! Presto, magic, allakhazam – a delicious, nutritious way to start your day!
I promised my brilliant and beautiful client that I’d send her a smoothie recipe! Lo n’ behold, wouldn’t you know it! The universe provided big time.
Just this morning, Holly & Valerie from Beliefnet’s Fresh Living blog, posted the best breakfast smoothie ever and one of the ingredients is a banana.
So thanks to Fresh Living for their timely and scrumptious, calcium filled, healthy recipe!
For more smooth & delicious links!

Broccoli Sprouts: Miracle Cure for Gut Bug.

We now know, thanks to a report in Cancer Prevention Research, that THREE DAY-OLD BROCCOLI SPROUTS suppress Helicobacter pylori (H. pylori) infections, one of the most common bacterial infections worldwide that cause stomach cancer.
While the protective effects of sulforaphane, a phytochemical from broccoli, have been known for almost two decades, the report shows for the first time the life-saving effect of broccoli in humans.
The study showed that THREE DAY OLD BROCCOLI SPROUTS contained 20 times the concentration of sulforaphase glucosinolate found in mature broccoli.
Please note: I said, THREE DAY-OLD BROCCOLI SPROUTS. While broccoli, in it of itself, is rich in cancer fighting agents, evidence suggests that to substantially reduce the risk of cancer, one must eat broccoli in large quantities. Certain young broccoli sprouts, grown under standardized conditions, on the other hand, contain large and highly uniform quantities of the compound.
Where does one buy THREE DAY OLD BROCCOLI SPROUTS?
Never fear, Our Lady of Weight Loss to the rescue, surfing the net, looking for answers!
Here is a link to growers. Perhaps there is one in your neighborhood.
Want to grow your own? Call Caudill Seed Company, (800) 695-2241, for a catalogue.

Poetry Month: Love. Loss. God, my co-pilot.

Click to Mix and Solve
This week’s Our Lady of Weight Loss ART was inspired by the poem ‘Yesterday’ written by Cody Walker. Walker’s book “Shuffle and Breakdown“, combines a pinch of Walt Whitman with a dash of Richard Pryor. Readers can expect to be pulled in many wonderful directions.
Here is a taste …
Yesterday
by Cody Walker

I had the thought to create an elixir
(or really, a conjuring agent) in a giant mixer -
enough to summon a ghoul or two,
so that I might stop obsessing about you.
God, my co-pilot,
told me to file it
under “Ridiculous Ideas I’ll Soon Regret.”
But nothing else has worked, yet.
For more poetry fun, stay tuned-in; April is National Poetry Month!

The Weight Loss HAIKU Challenge

Haiku, a traditional form of Japanese poetry, is a 17-syllable verse form consisting of three metrical units of 5, 7, and 5 syllables. In Japanese, this convention is a must, but in English, which has variation in the length of syllables, this can sometimes be difficult.
In other words, do your best.
Weight Loss Haikus help to melt away the pounds, because your mind is so occupied with the 5, 7, 5 thing, there’s absolutely no room for food to enter the picture. And, dig it, thinking is an energy consuming activity!
1 hour of thinking, sitting or standing burns 110 calories!
Here follows one of my favorite Weight Loss Haikus (by me :). I worked for hours and hours and melted at least 1/4 pound of excess weight on this one!
Celery and dip
Over my lips. A clean crunch.
Like Eating Water
Please comment and post your Weight Loss Haikus below!
How many calories did you burn thinking?
