We love banana bread. Fresh out of the oven, the sweet aroma, the captivating smell of banana and butter, gives us a warm, fuzzy feeling.
But we don't like the sugar spike that comes with it. More often than not, we use bananas that are too ripe. Ripened bananas has heightened sugar levels compare to the not-so-ripe ones.
And then there's the flour and the sugar that we add into the mixture. White flour and white sugar (pretty much all white powdery foods) are high in sugars and causes our blood glucose to spike. Which, unfortunately, also causes diabetes.
So the short term satisfaction of that warm banana bread will have a long term detrimental effect on our health.
And we don't want that, do we?
But we still want the banana bread ....
So we modify the recipe. And it comes out better than the original recipe. This one uses keto, low carb ingredients, and it keeps our glucose level stable (we know, we've tested it on ourselves).
Here's the moist and yummy recipe:
HI I’m Andrew with the Foolish Couple.
Do men look sexier as they age?
Well, if you have been following this blog, then you know that men can get sexier as they age, but only if they take care of themselves. I feel sexier now than when I was in my 30’s. I have more energy and stamina, my complexion is clear and every morning, I actually wake up feeling refreshed and alert, without any aches and pains.
I have been sharing tips over the last couple of weeks on how to look and feel sexier as a man. If you’ve missed the older episodes, I have included the links here so that you can go back and watch them later.
Now, I’m not talking about doing Botox or anything extreme like that. That just doesn’t look natural and potentially can have all sorts of side effects. All I’m asking you to do, is to sleep, drink clean...
Welcome back to the Foolish Review. I am Andy.
So, do men look sexier as they age? Well, the answer is. That depends. I certainly feel sexier now than when I was in my 30’s. My body feels energetic, my complexion is clear and I actually wake up without any aches and pains.
10 years ago, every morning, when I woke up, I woke up with so much back pain that I had to roll to my side, put my feet on the floor, and then push myself up and out of bed. Well, that’s not sexy, and that’s not me anymore.
Over the last couple of weeks, I have been sharing tips on how to look and feel sexier as a man. If you’ve missed the older episodes, I have included the links here so that you can go back and watch them later.
For now, let’s continue.
Staying young, healthy, and sexy isn’t just about what you eat and what you drink. 50% of how your body functions is based on...
Welcome back to the Foolish Review. I am Andy, and I have just celebrated my 49th birthday last week and for many of us, birthday is the time to review how our last year went and really get in touch with our inner selves.
For Minna, who also has the same birthday as me, we feel blessed that we feel younger and healthier than ever. If anything, not only do we not feel any older, we actually feel younger, we have more energy, our body shapes are a little more flattering, and our posture is also getting better.
And all that, comes with daily nutrition and the proper types of fitness routines. So if you want to stop feeling older every day, we have some tips for you.
Last time I talked about the importance of getting a good night’s sleep. Nowadays, people compete on how little sleep they get and I think that is going the wrong direction. In fact, to really track how well our sleep is, as our birthday presents, we both got ourselves an Oura ring which not only...
Sorry ladies, this one is for the men. But before you leave us, there are a few questions I would like to ask you.
Do you find your men sexier as they get older?
Do you find the older version of your men more attractive? Or do they just look old?
Do you secretly wish that he would age gracefully, like Sean Connery or Robert Downey Jr?
Do you wish that he would look younger AND have the energy and vitality to keep up with you?
For the men out there, unless you have good genes like Sean Connery or Robert Downey Jr, chances are, your wife or partner may not find you all that attractive anymore.
Have you caught her wandering eyes checking other guys? Well, maybe they were. It does not mean that they plan to cheat on you. It’s just that we are visual animals and we enjoy looking at beautiful things. And this applies to both men and women.
Hi. I’m Andrew from the Foolish Couple. And as I just...
Hello. My name is Minna from the Foolish Couple. Over the last couple of weeks, I’ve talked about why you suck at reaching your own goals. The fact that you get into your own way is the reason why you need a coach. Everyone needs a coach, if you want to succeed. Even coaches need coaches. And the best in the world, no matter what field they are in, they have the best coaches.
Having a coach that can work with you and that you are able to work with, will change your entire life. A good coach will sympathize with you, but will push you to your limit. They will change your perspective on how you perceive your problems and road blocks, and stimulate your creativity to get you out of your box and reach for your goal.
A good coach will support you and mentor you, but they will not baby you. That’s what your mom is for and that’s why never have your own mom as your coach. It won’t work. If you want to manifest your dreams, go get yourself a coach.
Hello. My name is Minna from the Foolish Couple. Last week, I talked about New Year’s resolution, and, more specifically, how we suck at meeting our goals. And that the reason behind us failing, is because we are our own worst enemy. And that’s why the one thing that most of us are missing is a coach.
We all have different goals, so we’d all need different coaches. There are coaches out there that is specific to a career, to a sport, to a skill, to your health, and then there are coaches that are more general in nature such as a life coach.
There are coaches that cost probably around $75 an hour and then there are coaches that cost $5 million a year!
You say, what? 5 million? Who would pay $5 million for a coach? Well, here’s the thing. Let’s say that you own this company, and your sales for the past few years has plateaued to, let’s just say 5 million. And with the help of this coach, you could bring your company’s sales up to...
Hello. My name is Minna from the Foolish Couple. We’re now into mid-March and right around 10 weeks into the New Year. So let me ask you this,
Did you set a New Year’s resolution?
If you did, how’s that working out for you? Or,
If you didn’t, why not?
Now, some people never set any New Year’s resolution, and that’s fine. I personally set goals any time during the year so it doesn’t necessary have to be during the New Year.
But, if your reason for not setting a resolution is because you always get disappointed at yourself, because you never meet your goals, then, maybe it’s time to ask yourself, why? Why do you always fail at getting your new year’s resolutions? Why do you keep disappointing yourself?
But, even if you keep failing at your goals, don’t beat yourself up yet.
Truth is, about 90% of all people suck at their new year’s resolutions.
And it doesn’t matter whether your goal is...
Hi. I am Andrew from the Foolish Couple. We believe that healthy relationships start with health and we help couples achieve total success in health and in relationships through nutrition, exercise, mindset and lifestyle.
I grew up in a very traditional Chinese family, where pretty much every meal was Chinese food, so when I was a kid, like, 6 or 7 years old, having a hamburger was a treat.
When I was in elementary school, about 2 or 3 times a year, this giant hamburger company called McDonald’s would deliver hamburgers and cheeseburgers to our school and sell them to the kids for about 15 to 20 cents a burger. Yeah, I know, you probably think that I am really really old. What can you buy for 15 to 20 cents nowadays?
My friends and I, we always looked forward to hamburger day. We savored every bite, especially because we knew that we won’t get to eat another hamburger until the next hamburger day. I still remember how that hamburger...
