Can't Sleep? Go Bananas!
Good morning and may you savour delectable ripe yellow bananas for your breakie. You never have more than one a day? O.K. There are few foods I cherish more than the mighty banana. True story. I went to a job interview. Short and sweet. She asked what was my favourite fruit. Right away I said, "Banana!" She smiled and asked why. I said because bananas are cheerful because of their bright yellow colour, and they are easy to open, and a great source of energy. She hired me.
You know that famous question we asked each other as kids. If you could be an animal, what animal would you be? I'd be a snake. I'll blog why later. Stay tuned. I wanna ask you as I ask myself. If you could be a fruit, which fruit would you be? I'd proudly be a banana! Because no other fruit so resembles my power animal, the snake! I just love how a banana is shaped in a u. U! You! The other. The one we all need to relate to, to bounce ideas off, to form a marriage, a family, a team, an organization. The banana is such a powerful delicious symbol. We need the yellow warmth of the sun. We love yellow flowers. We are crazy about yellow smiley faces, yellow highlighters make us retain the studying better than any colour. Yellow is nowhere so amazingly apparent in nature than bananas except lemons. But lemon is an acquired taste. And way more maintenance. Knives, sweeteners, water, glasses, lemon juicers, cutting boards, then washing up. No, bananas rock. Hands down.
Dr. Oz extolled the mighty banana as a sleep aid without peer. Only use as needed.
1. Take the sticker off
2. Rinse the skin, cuz you'll be eating it, too. Yes. No complaining.
3. Submerge whole banana in 2-4 cups of water in a pot, or cut in half if you use a small pot.
5. Let it steep at least 5 minutes
6. Drink all the tea.
7. Eat all the banana, plus the skin.
8. Be prepared to be amazed you never did this before - it tastes so good.
Go bananas and have a sunshiny day thinking how much better you will sleep tonight
