I have always loved bananas and eat them regularly. My favorite has always been to slice them and place into a bowl, add orange juice to cover and add a little sugar. Tastes good and gives the body a boost off goodness to start the day off with. These good benefits for bananas just makes eating them that much sweeter. Breakfast is often overlooked and anyone can grab one of these and eat it on the way to work or school. What I like also about bananas is that they are fairly cheap and you can buy them at the beginning of your week with some ready to eat and some still green so you have enough to make your full week.

Know About PURPLE CORN (a non GM Variety of Corn) –

The magic of Mother Nature…

 
This magical variety of corn hails from both the high altitudes and low valleys of the Peruvian Andes. The intriguing purple pigments you see here are some of the healthiest in terms of antioxidant power and also hold cancer-fighting abilities, specifically with tumors and colon cancer.

 
Research is showing that the antioxidant pigments of the purple variety increases circulation, contain anti-aging properties, regenerate connective tissues, inhibit and fight cancer, boost the immune system, inhibit obesity, and increase mental performance (among many other health benefits) by simply adding it to one’s regular diet.

 
The Peruvians used purple corn to prepare an ancient drink called Chicha Morada, which consists of boiling purple corn in water with pineapple, cinnamon, and clove to flavor the healthy beverage. This beverage is still made and served in many places around the world to this day.


You can easily find purple corn in Peru and other South American regions when visiting the local merchant stands. You can also find purple corn powder from online “superfood” stores to get these powerful benefits for yourself or simply to experience the memorable & exotic wonders of Purple Corn in your daily smoothies, juices, sauces, or meal.
