BBQ Banana Boat

I found this recipe and had to share because it is way to yummy not too!!! The BBQ Banana Boat is delish to the millionth power! Remember to use as many organic ingredients as you can find and to create as little waste as possible.

BBQ Banana Boat

Ingredients:

1 Banana Per Person
Nutella (or chocolate chips of any kind)
O Organics Old Fashioned Creamy Peanut Butter, 18 Ounce Jars (Pack of 6)
Organic Marshmallows – 400g/14oz bag
Organic Hazelnut Graham Crackers
Any other fruit you might want to add
100% Recycled Aluminum Foil

Directions:

1. Peel one section off of a rip banana but do not fully remove it. Make sure to keep the peeled piece attached to the banana you will need it later.

2. Cut the peeled section out of the banana but be careful not to cut all of the way through the banana.

3. Add all of the ingredients you want! Remember this isn’t a huge section to fill up a little will go a long way.

4. Put the peeled back peel back in place and wrap the banana in aluminum foil or you can use an aluminum tray and put all of the bananas on the grill at once.

5. Let the bananas sit on the BBQ for 3-5 minutes depending on how BBQ’d you want your banana.

6. Once the banana boats are removed let them sit for a little bit to cool. No need to burn yourself before you have your yummies!!!

For larger portions try to do the same with halved pinapple or other big fruit. I am not sure melons would do well because they are very water basted but perhaps a mango. Experiment with your favorite fruits and let us know how it went!
Remember to throw any unused food items into your compost pile and recycle what ever items you can.

5 Fab Foods to Help You Stay on Track

On my never ending mission to be in shape I find and read many health articles and blogs. I think it is interesting the differing sciences that can figure out how each body works and preform at its best. There are so many schools of thought and everyone seems to think they have the best plan. It’s difficult for me to know who is the “right one”. I prefer articles that gear it’s help with the use of science. After reading a few articles on what foods help keep your weight loss efforts in line I tried to get them all into one list using all of the information I read but “trimmed the fat” a bit.

1. Replace carbohydrates from sugar and refined grains with “good carbs” from fruits and vegetables. Orang-hued foods were found to be the most effective substitutes. Being that fruits and vegetables are high in fiber, they keep you full longer, high levels of antioxidants like vitamin C and beta-carotene fend off the fat. You can get a good amount of beta-carotene from carrots, cantaloupe, squash and peaches.

2.About 25 percent of your daily calories should come from protein, but you should choose lean sources like poultry, fish, low-fat yogurt, and fat-free milk to keep your calories down. Protein helps to you boost your energy, aiding in calorie burning.

3.
Selenium can lower rates of abdominal obesity. Several foods contain selenium, so it’s difficult to know if you’re getting the recommended 55mcg per day. The best sources are nuts, whole grains, poultry and seafood. Foods rich in vitamin E, like nuts and seeds, will increase the effectiveness of selenium in the body. Natural Raw Organic Cashews

4.    Several studies suggest that alcohol is fine in small amounts, protects against weight gain. Data reviewed have suggested one 4-ounce glass of wine as the best bet. While one glass has great health benefits, having more is just going to add inches to your waistline.

5.

Eating good fats like monounsaturated and omega-3s make it easier to stay slim, these fats are found in fish, nuts, olive oil, & avocados examples of bad fats, like saturated and trans are found in butter, shortening, pre-packaged cakes and cookies.

While pasta is cooking start to chop all the vegetables to the size you prefer. I prefer to chop them as small as I can. Once all the vegetables are chopped mix in the cooked pasta. After making sure all veggies and pasta are well mixed put 1/4 of the package of the Frontier Creamy Dill Dip , garlic powder, veggie pepper, & parsley and mix again thoroughly. After all ingredients are mixed then put mustard and mayo on the pasta and mix again. Taste test to make sure you don’t need to add more spices mayo or mustard. After all additions are finished I usually put the salad in a tupperware bowl with a lid and shake up the salad until I think its perfect. Then I put the salad in the fridge to cool. After about 30 minutes you can remove and serve.
Some other ideas to change up your macaroni salad are maybe adding hard boiled eggs, peppers, olives, cheese, peas, pickles, hot cherry peppers, or jalapenos. Maybe experiment with different pastas like ravioli or tortellini and add grilled chicken, tuna, turkey pepperoni, sliced turkey, tofu or maybe salmon. You have a never ending variety of items to change up your summer salads. Tell me what your favorite ingredients are!

Just Food, A book everyone should read

 

We suffer today from food anxiety. We are bombarded with confusing messages by large chains and our government about what ethical eating really means. Should we eat locally? Is organic really better for you and the environment? Is is possible that genetically modified foods could be good for you?

“JUST FOOD does for fresh food what Fast Food Nation (Houghton Mifflin, 2001) did for fast food. Just Food challenges the conventional views, and cuts through layers of BS and misinformation used to confuse the consumer. Did you know a imported tomato is more energy-efficient than a local greenhouse-grown tomato. And farm-raised freshwater fish may soon be the most sustainable source of protein.

Informative and surprising, JUST FOOD tells us how to decide what to eat, and how our choices can help save the planet and feed the world. Pick JUST FOOD up here: Just Food: Where Locavores Get It Wrong and How We Can Truly Eat Responsibly.
