I know how busy you are and this is why I encourage you to go for the ultimate fast food - Fruit! It is easy to grab-and-go, it is on the budget and unlike processed foods, fruit actually has amazing side effects like longevity, optimum weight, abundant energy and balance.
Fruits are filled with fiber and liver stimulants, which act as natural, gentle laxatives. Whenever possible, buy fresh, locally grown fruit as opposed to imported fruits shipped from far-off places. This keeps you eating in season, and more in harmony with your environment and climate.
Eating raw fruit in summer months is highly cooling. Frozen, whole, puréed or juiced fruit can make great summertime cool-down treats. Try frozen grapes, banana-coconut smoothie popsicles or lime juice ice-cubes in iced tea!
Here are a few summer fruits and their health benefits:
BANANA ICE CREAM
3-4 Frozen Bananas (peel them before you freeze them)
Blend bananas in a Vitamix blender (other blenders may not be able handle frozen bananas), using the plunger to move them around.
You will see the color change to white and the texture become just like soft-serve ice cream Put in your favorite glass and enjoy!
