Why Staying There Can be Health-Disastrous

gettyimages.com
Just staying there a long time can wreak havoc on your health. No kidding. God designed our bodies to move around from time to time so all systems can run smoothly all the time. Your body is not designed to just stay there idle in one place.

The same is true spiritually, mentally, emotionally, socially (of course) and financially. The moment you stop and become dormant, a lot of things start to go wrong.

I stand up from my PC desk now and then to exercise, but I realize how that isn't enough. I have to run or brisk walk outdoors as well or just go out to roam leisurely for a change of environment. It's good for your mental, emotional and spiritual health as well.


You keep yourself in your office or house the whole day every day and you might start getting some inner disturbances and personality problems. Or anxiety problems that cause a lot of other health problems eventually.

Go out and see life.

Spiritually, you also cannot remain the same, idle, or just "stay there." You cannot confine yourself in a "safe" box just because you fear going wrong. You have to explore your faith in and with God. I always explore the bible with the Spirit of God and go places in the spirit realms with Him. The safest and most rewarding place is to go places with God (especially in dangerous places like the wilderness where you learn a lot of powerful truths).

I brought you up out of Egypt and led you forty years in the wilderness to give you the land of the Amorites. [Amos 2.10]
Financially, you also have to take risks and invest your money in various ways.

Invest in seven ventures, yes, in eight; you do not know what disaster may come upon the land. [Ecclesiastes 11.3]
So, don't just stay "there." There's so much more to life than what you see in front of you.

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 …

You'd be Shocked How Healthy Butong Pakwan Really Is

Butong Pakwan or watermelon seed. We've been thinking, all we get from eating it is salt (butong pakwan sold in small packs are salted for taste) and chewing fun to kill time away.

I used to just let the seeds remain in my mouth until I have sucked all their saltiness. And then I'd spew them all out.

But don't take butong pakwan lightly from now on.

Nutritionists claim butong pakwan actually has tremendous health benefits.  No less than the US National Institute of Health says butong pakwan is rich in magnesium which is important for regulating blood pressure and metabolizing carbohydrates which is good for normalizing blood sugar.

Butog pakwan also has iron, phosphorus, potassium, copper, sodium zinc and manganese which are vital minerals.

It's also so rich in protein. A cup of it satisfies 61 percent of your daily recommended dose of protein. The protein includes tryptopjan, amino acids, glutamic acid arginine and lysine. Some experts say added arginine may be good f…
