sweatytherapy asked: Hi, I'm wondering about how many bananas you ate while on Banana Island. Also, could you recap your experience? I'm going to start is soon & would love to hear about how you felt & what your time was like? Thanks!!


Answer:

Hi there!

A Banana Island recap is definitely long overdue; thank you for prompting me! :) My most recent experience of Banana Island lasted for 7 days (due to running out of bananas at the 7 day mark!) The first time I tried this detox, the main challenge I had to overcome was not getting enough variety. I absolutely love bananas, but nothing but bananas drives me a little crazy after a while. Alternating the ways in which I prepare them (like this) really helps, but choosing one type of leaf to accompany them is the solution for sanity, I have found ;) Bananas and spinach were the ideal pairing for me. I made banana-spinach ice cream and smoothies, and even munched through bowls of half sliced bananas and half spinach leaves.

These were the main benefits I experienced during the detox:

  • Improved digestion
  • Faster recovery time from exercise
  • Increased clarity and concentration
  • More energy
  • Clearer and softer skin
  • Greater resilience to stress
  • Feeling more in tune with my body
  • And great mood!

Good luck, and I hope you enjoy your trip! 

(:

PS. I forgot to answer the question of how many bananas I ate, opps! I just gauged it by how hungry I was and ate enough for each meal to keep me satisfied. Anywhere from 6 to 10 per meal.

Fresh pineapple and frozen banana smoothie bowl. One of the most refreshing smoothies I’ve tried. The only thing that might make this combination even more delicious would be some cucumber and romaine lettuce :)

Anonymous asked: Hey :) I decided to go fully raw, and yesterday was my first day. Last night I threw up and I had a really bad nightmare. Is it normal ? Are they common detox symptoms ? Should I carry on the raw diet ? Thanks x


Answer:

Hello there :) 

It depends so much on your previous diet/habits as to how the initial period of detox will affect you. Digestive issues are a very common challenge in the early stages of detox, but it will get better! I would guess that the nightmare will have been unrelated. 

Firstly, make sure you have researched the ass off low-fat high-carb raw veganism, so you can commit to it as fully as you desire. Look at food combining; drink loads; sleep loads; eat enough calories, and don’t skimp on any nutrients! :)

Detox can be tough initially, but it will pass, and the positives will soon begin to outweigh the tougher times. It takes time and patience, and sometimes a lot of tweaking here a there to figure out how to make this lifestyle work for you. If I can help in any way, just let me know. I’m always happy to keep messages private if you’d prefer. Good luck!

I was so happy to find these beautiful creatures on the beach recently ♥ Bees are crucial for our survival and, as you may have heard, their population has already declined massively. You can read more about the action you can take here :)

Food can be found in the most unlikely of places. You can build walls and put up fences and barriers, but nature always fights back ;)
