Easy Secret to Live Longer and More Meaningful
Lots and lots of people ask me one vital tip to a longer, more meaningful life. Many others obviously need the tip but are hopelessly entangled in the complications of life--and yet not know it.

After examining things and having tried a lot of lifestyles in my hectic but meaningless life before, I learned one thing--keep things simple. There's so much wisdom in that. Yet, so few get it. They think busyness is the way to go--because it looks smart and productive. fact, the whole point of life  is to keep things in their simplest possible form. That's the secret to a full and meaningful healthy life that has power for a long life.

Well, it's not a guarantee that you'd live to a full ripe age of say 90 or a hundred. But even if you die young, you'd feel having lived a long, full and satisfactory life if you had kept things simple.

How do I know that? Have I experienced dying young?

Nope, but Jesus have. He died at 33 but lived a full, meaningful and healthy life--in fact a "long" life, as it were, because He is the LIFE.

It's an epidemic--so many people launch out to a very busy life and think that's what makes a life. They intently make their daily schedules hectic and everything complicated and feel productive when they are dead tired at the end of the day. They love it that way and believe they are getting the meaning in life.

But later, they end up miserable with empty achievements, sad, and finding out too late that they have wasted their time and energies for nothing. A lot of them find themselves bound to their sick beds in old age, reaping the results of a stressful life. Worse, some of them don't realize to the end what they really missed.

You want a well lived and happy life with your loved ones? Keep things simple. That's one of the topics I discussed in my upcoming e-book, "My Secrets to Cheap, Simple, and Safe Fitness Easy to Keep Up With" (Exercises You Can Do Anywhere).

HOW HEALTHY IS BANANA CUE? For Banana Lovers Like Me

If you're a banana lover like me, you probably love eating banana cue and turon as well. Banana cue is dip frying "saba" or cardava banana rolled in brown sugar. Turon, on the other hand, is "saba" or cardava banana wrapped in egg-roll wrapper, the type used for spring rolls, sprinkled with brown sugar. Sometimes, they even put slices of langka or jackfruit in it. SM Save More outlets sellthem for only P15 per big piece.

Anyway, if you eat these cooked bananas, what health benefit do you get? Do you get all the health benefits bananas give?

Cooked bananas give you dietary fibers, nothing more, nothing less. Well, you also get some carbohydrates from the brown sugar and fat from the cooking oil. By the way, included here is sweetened "saba" which is banana boiled in water with brown sugar and sometimes added with vanilla extract. At least with this, you eliminate cooking oil.

Bananas are supposed to be super healthy with lots of vitamins and minerals …

HEALTH BENEFITS OF PATOLA: Don't Judge a Veggie by It's Rough Look

"Pulis patola" is a term popularized in Filipino movies on supposedly lousy cops. It denotes an inept policeman trained in a far-flung province where cops know nothing except probably to eat and sleep. But in the Filipino movies, the rustic "patola" cop turns out to be a good and skillful cop who manages to ruin a powerful syndicate singlehandedly.

Thus, "patola" or sponge gourd is a common rough-looking vegetable almost nobody pays attention to (some even smirks at the sigh to fit) and considered low class vegetable. Why "sponge" gourd? The core of the fruit looks like crude sponge, but it sure doesn't taste like one. Patola is  often mixed in soups, especially plain and ordinary miswa soup to add some sweet flavor to it. It's also cheap--just perfect for anyone aiming for health and fitness with middle income budget.

Here are some of its health benefits:
It's low in calories. If you're trying to lose weight, eat more of this to …

Harvard Study Says Chicken Skin is Healthy!

You used to take off chicken skin because doctors and nutritionists said it's bad for your heart. So, with broken hearts we did so, stripping the golden brown and juicy skin from our roasted or grilled chicken and couldn't believe we were actually throwing away all that goodness into the trash.

And we wondered why God made chicken skin so delicious just so we could throw it all away.

But a new Harvard study says chicken skin is actually good for your health---to be specific, your heart health. It says most of the fatty part of chicken skin (the most mouthwatering one) is unsaturated and healthy for the heart. And that's according to studies done by the Harvard School of Public Health, no less.

Unsaturated fat can lower your cholesterol and blood pressure, the Harvard school said, according to an article on The Daily Meal site titled "Doctor's Got It All Wrong!" So, if the study is correct (I'm waiting for another "study" to contradict this---al…
