I was on banana coconut island for a couple days this week. On these days, i only ate bananas and YOUNG thai coconuts (mostly the water, but if the flesh inside was really soft and jelly-like, i ate that too)
The first day I ate 20 bananas and 2 young coconuts and the next day I ate 23 bananas and 2 young coconuts. I always ate the bananas throughout the day and the coconuts at night after my workouts. I ate most of the bananas in the form of smoothies --- just bananas blended with water. SO GOOD.
While on banana coconut island, I had more energy than ever before. You see, when we eat a variety of foods and we combine lots of foods and ingredients at every meal, it takes a while for our body to digest. Digestion takes a lot of energy. By going on banana island, my digestion could take a break and the energy that usually goes towards digestion went to healing the rest of my body and providing me with more energy to be active. I had 2 great climbing days on banana island!!!!
I would have been on banana island all week, but my bananas weren't ripe enough the 3rd day (yesterday). So yesterday I had to simply use up the fruit i had at my house (since I am leaving for CO today) i ate a banana smoothie for breakfast. Then i ate 2 pints of cherry tomatoes for lunch (with a couple romaine leaves). For dinner i blended a few peeled apples with a few bananas. It tasted like a very sweet "oatmeal."
also, my DATES FROM THE DATE PEOPLE ARRIVED!!!! I was so ecstatic. You do not understand. Well, maybe you do if you have ordered from them before!!! Seriously guys, this is my favorite food. The dates from The Date People are SO FRESH! They are so moist and creamy! They are so delicate that when I pick one up it practically falls apart. They are the sweetest, creamiest food I've ever eaten. They always put a smile on my face! I ordered 10 pounds of the Barhi dates. They even wrote a special note on my invoice wishing me good luck at nationals. They are extremely friendly and their prices are CHEAP, especially compared to prices of not-so-good dates at Whole Foods or another grocery store. (At Whole Foods dates are around 7 bucks a pound..... i just got 10 pounds for 36 bucks including shipping!!!) I highly suggest you CALL THE DATE PEOPLE NOW! I'm sure you'd love them. I have shared them with many people who were skeptical about how they looked, and they ended up asking for more and more. I've even shared them with people who "don't like dates" and they soon changed their minds. This is the best energy food (along with the banana) in my opinion, and The Date People is the best company to order from!!! If they don't answer, LEAVE A MESSAGE and they WILL CALL YOU BACK within a few days. Their number is 760-359-3211. You should also search YouTube for "Harvest High" and watch them!!! Taken straight from the words on an info sheet, these dates are unheated, unfrozen, untrated, sustainable and small farm grown! They are highly nutritious, delicious, and RAW. They have high fiber, they are high alkaline and low glycemic. THESE ARE AN AMAZING FOOD!!! =) =) =)
NATIONALS-----------------------> I am leaving for Boulder Colorado in a few hours. I am competing in the qualifiers round on Saturday and hopefully the finals round on Sunday. I will keep you guys posted. WISH ME LUCK!!!!!
