Plantains explained. A recipe you have to try!

plantain recipe

You may already be familiar with plantains and use them in your kitchen from time to time. Perhaps you’ve strolled the produce department and seen these “green bananas” waiting for some attention. Let’s peel apart what they are and give them an easy application that’ll put this on your grocery list for good! I’ll give you a brief explanation, then let’s give them a try with an old familiar recipe that is too good to pass up. Plantains explained. A recipe you have to try!

If you ever wondered what the heck to do with those cooking bananas that you’ve found every time you go looking for fruit at your local grocery store, look no further. You’re in for a treat. For starters, plantains are similar looking to a banana but they are actually quite different in texture and taste. They are a superfood that many people don’t understand. Let’s take a look at a few of their outstanding qualities.


  • An excellent source of Magnesium
  • A wonderful natural provider of Potassium
  • High in Vitamin C
  • Loaded with Vitamin B-6
  • Decent amounts of Fiber
  • Natural Carbohydrates
  • Low in fat, cholesterol and calories. One full plantain is around 230 calories

As you can see, they pack a pretty good nutritional punch don’t they? Let me address the elephant in the room at this point. Some of you are probably staring at the carbohydrate note and thinking I just spoiled the plantain party for you. Not so fast. Just give them a chance.

Let me tell you a little bit about what I have discovered about a healthy diet in general. I have discovered that a healthy diet has moderation built in. There are few limitations to what you can or should eat. These are mother natures’ resources for a reason. I have tried about every diet under the sun and limiting any one thing for me eventually results in an explosion of my seeking out the very thing I have been trying to limit. Ever notice if you have tried to limit carbs for example, that eventually you go on a carb spree and feel like you wrecked your diet? Stop. Take step back. Start over. Simplify.

You can choose any food in moderation and it will elevate naturally needed vitamins and minerals for your body. So let’s get back to plantains. They are in the Musa family, and must be cooked to be enjoyed properly. Shortly, we will get to how. If you love the occasional potato chip frenzy or crave something with a crunch or salty taste every now and then, you can replace this with something much better for you.

I would also like to note that plantains stole the party on the hit TV show Iron Chef I believe it was. A chef prepared the recipe I am about to share with you, and to my amazement, everyone went absolutely bonkers over something that is so easy to do, it had to be a shock to the chef as well! But for good reason!

You’ll need:

  • Plantains – They should be firm to the touch and have a nice green outer skin. Firm is good. Yellowing is too ripe for what we are doing here. A nice deep green even with a blackish sort of vein around the edges up and down is jut perfect. Plantains aren’t as completely round as bananas. They almost have panels that work their way around into a banana shape.
  • Adobo – A must have staple in the spice department. If you aren’t familiar with it. Get it. It’s a sort of allspice and it turns things into magic with it’s flavor. Moderation is key with this, too much will be an overload for your taste buds, but don’t be afraid to use just a bit more than you would use say, salt.
  • Oil- I use olive oil.


  • Using a knife , cut off both ends of your plantains just to get the nubs off.
  • Take that same knife and score the outside of the plantain from top to bottom, at least 3 or 4 times all the way around.
  • Peel away the green skin and you should be left with an off white or yellowish, solid plantain. Looks like a banana but I wouldn’t take a bite. Go ahead and try and you’ll see why. It’s raw. Totally different than a banana. It’s a solid missile compare to a bananas soft squishy texture and it tastes nothing like it.
  • Spit out the plantain you attempted to taste and move on to the next step. 🙂
  • Cut your plantain into about 1-2 inch pieces and carefully place them into your hot cooking oil, you can submerge them totally, or what I tend to do now is use an inch or two of oil and turn them upside down and on their side until they are a completely golden color on the outside.
  • Remove them from the oil and use paper towel lined saucers to smash each piece so that they’re flat.
  • If you haven’t cooked them enough you might notice a little bit of sticking and tearing apart. That means they weren’t quite ready to smash. You can find a kitchen tool made exactly for this. It’s a tostonera, or plantain smasher.
  • Once you have all your pieces smashed, reintroduce them to the oil and cook them visually until they are a nice deep golden yellow color.
  • Remove them from the oil and sprinkle Adobo all over.
  • Enjoy!

If you have never tried this, give it a try and let me know what you think. These are great on their own, or think of what you could do if you line the bottom of a plate with them and dress them with chopped onion, tomato, cilantro, chicken, the possibilities are endless! You can add these to a healthy snack or dinner. Thank you for joining me today for plantains explained. This is certainly a recipe you have to try!

Fitness Nutrition-A 5 minute guide

photo for a fitness blog post

There’s some truth in the saying that you are what you eat. If you want to be a fitness buff, it’s important to follow a healthy diet.

It’s easy to feel overloaded by the nutrition information provided by daily news and the diet industry. That’s especially true when some advice seems to contradict each other, and you’re trying to maximize your workouts as well as your general wellbeing.

Still, it’s worth paying attention because the foods you choose and the way you eat can help make your workouts more effective.

Find out what you need to know with this quick guide to fitness nutrition. Fitness Nutrition-A 5 minute guide

How to Eat Before and After Working Out:

  1. Keep it light. When you’re preparing to work out, you want to eat enough to give you energy and stabilize your blood sugar. On the other hand, overeating could weigh you down. Many adults prefer to have a small snack before exercising but finish any large meal at least 3 hours in advance.
  2. Consume carbs. Focus on carbs for your pre-workout snack. They’re easy to digest, so your body stores them in your muscles as glycogen and breaks them down when you’re exerting yourself.
  3. Monitor your protein. Most adults need to get about 10 to 35% of their daily calories from protein. If you’re trying to build muscle, you may need slightly more. Your body can digest protein more efficiently if you spread your intake out throughout the day.
  4. Choose whole foods. Energy bars and protein powders can be convenient and safe for most adults. However, you can also get the nutrients you need from a wide range of ordinary unprocessed foods.
  5. Drink fluids. Staying hydrated enhances circulation and prevents fatigue. The American College of Sports Medicine recommends about 3 cups of water before a workout, one cup each 20 minutes while you’re exercising, and three cups afterwards.
  6. Understand electrolytes. Plain water is adequate for most fitness programs. However, sports drinks may be helpful if you exercise at high intensity or for more than 90 minutes. These beverages contain additional ingredients, including electrolytes, which are essential minerals like calcium and potassium that you lose when you perspire.
  7. Refuel your body. Eating after a workout aids recovery. Have a snack if your next meal is more than 2 hours away. Choose foods high in protein, such as milk or fish.

How to Eat the Rest of the Day:

  1. Calculate your calories. You could wind up gaining weight if you overestimate how many calories you burn while exercising. Keep a journal if you need help tracking your activity level.
  2. Increase your fiber. Eating foods rich in fiber is beneficial for any fitness level. It can help you manage your weight, lower your cholesterol, and maybe even increase your lifespan.
  3. Start with breakfast. The first meal of the day replenishes your energy and helps you say alert. If you work out in the mornings, finish your meal at least an hour before exercising, or wait until afterwards. You may be comfortable working out on an empty stomach, or you may need a snack first.
  4. Consider supplements. What about those shelves of performance aids you see at the supermarket or health food store? They can’t replace a healthy diet, but they may help if you train intensely or have dietary restrictions.
  5. See your doctor. For individual nutrition advice, talk with your doctor or a registered dietician. They can advise you about specific supplements, meal plans, and other options.

Taking care of yourself involves many choices. Along with eating a nutritious diet, Be sure to manage stress, exercise regularly, and sleep well. Your lifestyle can help you lead a longer and more active life. I hope you have enjoyed this 5 minute guide to nutrition and find ways to make this fitness Nutrition 5 minute guide part of your fitness routine!

9 Foods That Can Enhance Your Mood

post photo regarding food and mood

Your food doesn’t just impact your waistline, it can also affect your mood. Everything you eat is broken down and absorbed by your body, so it can certainly have an effect. The food you eat impacts how you feel. For example, consider how eating a piece of chocolate impacts your mood differently than consuming a piece of bread. Let’s have a looks at 9 foods that can enhance your mood.

See how what you put into your body matters to your body and your mind:

  1. Fermented foods. Fermented foods are great for the health of the good bacteria in your gut. There is evidence that these bacteria play an important part in mental and physical health. Some examples of fermented foods include sauerkraut, yogurt, tempeh, and kombucha.

● If none of those foods appeal to you, there are over the counter probiotic supplements that are likely to provide the same benefit.

  1. Salmon. Not only salmon, but other cold-water fatty fish including mackerel, herring, sardines, and tuna are high in omega-3 fatty acids. proving in some studies to boost health. Again, find what is right for you and moderate everything you eat. Your body loves a little bit of everything.
  2. Chocolate. It only takes one bite of chocolate to know that it makes you feel better than you did right before eating it. Dark chocolate with a high percentage of cocoa (70% or higher) is actually quite healthy when eaten in moderation and can give your mood a great boost.

● Chocolate reduces cortisol, too, which is a primary indicator of stress.

  1. Leafy green vegetables. Leafy vegetables are high in magnesium, which reduces anxiety. As a general rule, the darker greens like spinach are healthier than lighter greens like lettuce. Try a mixture of greens to get the greatest benefit.
  2. Nuts. They contain healthy fats, proteins, and even some fiber. They also contain tryptophan which boosts serotonin. Serotonin is a positive-mood brain chemical.
  3. Fruit. Bananas in particular have been shown to boost mood. Fruits are full of vitamins, minerals, fiber, and can give your blood sugar a boost.
  4. Coffee. In moderation it can certainly boost your mood, but there’s a lot more to coffee than just caffeine. Coffee is loaded with a variety of naturally occurring good chemicals.

● You can even skip the caffeine and consume decaf and get a similar mood-boosting effect.

  1. Green Tea. Like coffee, green tea can be a healthy beverage that also boosts your mood. One of the chemicals found in green tea that induces calmness is EGCG, or epigallocatechin gallate. The small amount of caffeine found in green tea is also good for your mood.
  2. Oysters. Oysters restore the zinc levels in the body. There are studies that show eating oysters regularly reduces anxiety and depression. Oysters are also a source of omega-3 fatty acids and many vitamins.

If your mood needs enhanced, changing your diet might have a positive impact. The foods you eat have an additional effect on focus, and emotional health. Be sure to eat at least one food each day that is likely to have a positive impact. It won’t take long before you know which foods to eat and which to avoid.

I hope that you have found some of this information helpful, and use it as a guide or starting point to understanding how the foods that consume affect your mood and health.

These 9 foods will enhance your mood, try them now! If you already regularly consume some of these, that’s great! You’re on your way to wellness and health!

4 Amazing Benefits of Green Tea

4 Amazing Benefits of Green Tea


Do you know that green tea has amazing health benefits? It’s time to learn more about the top benefits of drinking green tea and incorporating it into your lifestyle. Ability to lose weight, possibly prevent cancer, support healthy teeth, and lower cholesterol, makes this tea, truly a miracle worker. BONUS – It also tastes good!

Green tea has many health benefits, which are being revealed through various health studies. In what ways can green tea benefit your life? Continue with me as we explore 4 Amazing Benefits of Green tea!

Weight Loss

  • Compared to most other beverages consumed in the morning, green tea contains fewer calories than most others.
  • In comparison to green tea, daily calories are usually higher if coffee is consumed daily as most people’s morning drink.
  • This makes sense naturally, think about whether or not you use sugar and creamer or one or the other. If you drink coffee at work for half the morning, it’s easy to consume around 200 calories.
  • By switching from coffee to green tea, you might reduce your waistline significantly over time. It’s about being a part of the whole healthier you, adapting a good habit and multiplying that along the way. This is one of those little things that works in conglomeration with lots of other little good habits, and as a collective whole, it will contribute to your weight loss in this way.

Healthier teeth

  • The fluoride in tea is said to help keep teeth clean. Bacteria that cause plaque are killed by fluoride in the mouth due to its antimicrobial properties. According to Dentists, fluoride helps to maintain healthy, cavity-free teeth and prevents general tooth decay. Consuming green tea has been shown to improve tooth health significantly.
  • There are however a number of studies about fluoride, opposing its benefits and you may want to read around that if it concerns you, or just ensure that you do not drink too much green tea in that case. You may feel though that the other benefits of green tea outweigh the fluoride content. Green tea also doesn’t stain your teeth, so that’s a plus!

Possible cancer deterrent

  • Various studies indicate that green tea is an effective way of helping to prevent free radical damage to the body. Cancer and aging can also be accelerated by free radicals. Polyphenols found in green tea constantly monitor free radicals to prevent them from being formed into unstable oxygen molecules, in a process referred to as oxidation.
  • Upon oxidation of cells, proper tissue is damaged and has been related to ailments such as cancer, heart disease, and strokes. In addition to preventing premature cell division and inflammation, green tea polyphenols have been shown to destroy most cancer-causing agents.

Lower cholesterol

  • High cholesterol sufferers may find relief from the effects of green tea.
  • Bad cholesterol is often linked to heart attacks and green tea may be able to reduce this high risk. During the circulating process of LDL cholesterol in the body, heavy deposits may be formed in the arteries. When a person drinks green tea, their levels of bad cholesterol, such as LDL, drop. This is due to green tea’s ability to naturally maintain those levels. Pretty Amazing if you ask me!

End note

I hope you have enjoyed todays explanation of some of the benefits of green tea that may make it a more attractive choice for you! These look like some fairly decent reasons to give this natural wonder a try. Seriously though, green tea tastes awesome and it’s so good for you. Hot or cold, it has to be something you try. It could be one of those little building blocks to total health that you want to start stacking up on.
