Idle before 10am??? 😖 Well, yeeees! 🙌

I’m purposedly posting sth irrelevant (well, not so much, as I’m reconsidering it* 😏…he-he) to the famous -unfortunately-  COVID-19 …

I’ve come across this video and I feel myself  totally  justified for not wanting to leave my bed before 10 am!!!  😉

So, let’s consider the lockdown (at least those of us that have to stay indoors) as an excellent opportunity to practise late sleeping in the morning!!!

The alphabet of 💪 superfoods : C(innamon)

Seasoning a high carb food with cinnamon can help lessen its impact on your blood sugar levels. Cinnamon slows the rate at which the stomach empties after meals, reducing the rise in blood sugar after eating.

In a 100 gram reference amount, ground cinnamon is a rich source of calcium (100% of the Daily Value DV), iron (64% DV), and vitamin K (30% DV).

Important info:

There are actually two main types of this spice : Ceylon and Cassia.

Ceylon, or “true cinnamon,” is native to Sri Lanka and southern parts of India. It is tan-brown in color and contains lots of tight sticks with soft layers. It is relatively expensive.

Cassia originated in Southern China. It tends to be a dark brown-red color with thicker sticks and a rougher texture than Ceylon cinnamon. It  is considered  of lower quality. It is very cheap, thus, it is  the type most commonly consumed. However, it contains a lot of coumarin, so it  can be toxic in large quantities.

The alphabet of superfoods: B(anana)… 🍌

Bananas are widely known for their high levels of  potassium. (A  mineral  essential for maintaining proper heart function and regulating normal blood pressure.)

But, in fact, bananas are richer in  manganese and vitamin B6. They also contain  magnesiumcarotene and prebiotics such as fructo-oligosaccharides (FOS) which improves immunity and digestion.

As they are a good source of dietary fiber (one large banana has 3.5 g, or 9 to 14% of the recommended dietary fiber intake), they can be added to a bowl of oatmeal or bran cereal for a great high fiber meal. (For more info, see the nutritional value chart below ⏬)

Εxperts’ storage tip
Unripe bananas can not be held in home refrigerators because they suffer from the cold. Ripe bananas can be held for a few days at home. If bananas are too green, they can be put in a brown paper bag with an apple or tomato overnight to speed up the ripening process.

My storage tip: I buy them ripe and put them in the frigde fruit drawer, as they are, without any bag or wrap (in this way, they do not get black and do not over-ripe too quickly).

The alphabet of superfoods: A(vocado)… 💪

a-avocadoAvocado contains more potassium, which helps lowers blood pressure. It is also rich in glutathione, which protects the body from toxins, helps neutralize bad fat, and is the most powerful antioxidant, fighting the free-radical damage to cells that accompanies aging.
