Quotes and Highlights


I do love bananas as a better breakfast-to-go than a processed bar or sugar-filled cereal because they are filled with fibre, healthy fats and potassium…and of course, we all love their sustainable, garden-nourishing packaging (aka peel).

However, Ayurveda guides people to eat bananas differently to the cool smoothies, cereals and ice-creams we’re used to.

That’s because the heavy properties of bananas combined with cool of milk or ice makes it sticky and difficult to digest.

So, consider adding your banana to a hot cacao blend or make your smoothie room temperature with a dash of warming cinnamon to help prevent mucous and congestion.

What I loved about the banana and the peel.

Firstly bananas are used by cycles for their energy.

For a quick energy boost.

A banana without its peel running naked is like FREEDOM.

Breaking away from public transport and gridlock traffic.

Cycling is like running around naked.

And tying it back to the seek freedom message!
