Don't Let It Eat You

I know how life today is built-in with stress.

Like me---I work at home online and yet I also have to face up with a lot of stresses---stress with beating article deadlines, deciding what blog title to write about (I have 10 blogs), I cook meals, wash some clothes manually, and then help a lot of other people solve their problems (I've been a counselor and adviser for decades).

Then often, I have to clean the poo that our neighbor's dogs leave on our front.

Then there's politics.

I'm not a politician and I don't like to get involved with politics anymore (I used to be an activist), but I need to keep abreast of developments and write my opinions on one of my blogs. I used to be a journalist and I guess politics and the economy will always be among my blog topics.

Imagine all that stress!

But I just allow stress to stay a while. You need some good stress to keep the adrenaline up---adrenaline for workouts, thinking and writing. But I make sure I throw it all away right after.

I don't let it eat me.

It's like anger---the bible says be angry. Be angry if you need to . Even Jesus got angry. But you shouldn't stay angry all day. Sometimes I post angry stuff on Facebook, especially when I abhor abuses done against helpless people--like that poor kid that survived a bombing in Syria.

But after letting out my indignation I pray to God, pray for the victim and the culprit, cool down and relax---leave everything in God's hands---and go on with life.

The same with loneliness. After watching scenes of abuses against the helpless on Youtube, I feel sad. And then I feel lonely when other people seem to be indifferent about it. But I don't let that eat me. I pray for the situation and leave everything to God. If you want to conquer loneliness (even extreme loneliness), this e-book may help you. Click here to get a review.

You stay healthy that way. Remember, stress is often the root of all kinds of ailments. Be careful not to allow your free radical level go up a long time.

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…
