Hey there! I’d love your input (:

I’ve just added the key nutritional content for a couple of recent meals (here and here). I was wondering how many people would find this useful as a regular addition to my personal meal posts?

Also, is there anything else you’d like to see more or less of?

Let me know what you think. Your input would be hugely appreciated ♥

Another banana spinach ice cream/smoothie bowl ;)
6 frozen bananas, 250 g fresh spinach and a small amount of water. The frozen bananas easily overpower the spinach… but I actually really like spinach-flavoured ice cream, so I seem to be adding more and more spinach each time just to get the flavour to come through! :p

SUPER GREEN SMOOTHIE: aka as much spinach and frozen banana as I could fit into my blender (topped with sesame seeds). I’ve been having 2-3 green smoothies a day recently, love them! ♥

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.

Answer:

Hello there! (and thanks!)
I mostly use a Sony Cybershot (12.1 megapixels), which is now several years old. I also use an iPod touch occasionally.
