If You Were to Die Tonight, What Would You Rather Do The Whole Day?

andreasmoser.wordpress.com
ON LIFE. The other day, I read how a number of old, dying people were asked what one thing they regretted about in life now that they were dying.

Accordingly, majority of the answers were about not trying to do a lot of good things while they had the youth and energy.

Then the article encouraged readers to do all the fun they could now while they were strong---like traveling, boating, trekking, scuba diving, bungee jumping, kayaking, and other crazy stuff.

Probably.

But what if you had less than 24 hours left?

I for one would ask my family and close friends to gather by my bed and talk about some of the good old days we had and, most importantly, about Jesus. To me, that beats all the fun and adventure you could think of in this world.

Well, it'd be lots better if you could do the same while in vacation in Palawan, Batanes, Switzerland, New Zealand or the Bahamas if you had that much money. Much better if you could treat them for free as well.

My point is, whatever it is you'd want to do and could do if you had only less than 24 hours left, do it now while you have a full life ahead of you and the energy to do it, too. Don't they say how we ought to live our lives like every day were our last?

Treat them to vacation trips each day? Well, why not, if you're someone like Donald Trump, Bill Gates or Mark Zuckerberg who earn millions or billions of residual income each day.

And probably, I'd include buying and reading as many books each day as possible, watching good movies in our home family theater, trying out different guns at the shooting range.

In the meantime that I'm not yet rich (and definitely I'm not dying, by God's grace), what I really love doing is spend time with God, my family and some friends, especially casually talking about Jesus with them.

But, how about if you have only 3 minutes? Well, to me, the best way to spend your last 3 minutes on earth is these 3 things:

1. Sincerely repent of your sins.
2. Receive Jesus Christ as Savior and Lord.
3. Surrender your life to him 100 percent.

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…
