I LOVE IT!!! Now I just need to find it in the states. I'd have to remember not to take it on a plane though, how embarassing does THAT look on an airport scanner :ph34r:


Alright, don't worry even if things end up a bit too heavy

We'll all float on, alright

Well we'll float on good news is on the way...

I will add one here; want a quick shine on our shoes?? Take the INSIDE of the banana skin, and rub directly on the shoe...polish with dry cloth. Amazing fruit!

Great shine but I have fruit flies buzzing around my feet now. Any suggestions for controlling them?

Yes, me too! LOVE my bananas, I'm a two-a-dayer, but our kitchen is inundated with fruit flies! How do you get rid of these things?

11 year-old Son had negative blood panel, but went on gluten-free diet of his own volition to see if his concentration would improve, his temper abate, and his energy level would increase. Miraculous response!

I bought 4 tonight and I'm somewhat on the rotation diet. One tonight-2 in smoothie tomorrow and 1 for snack tomorrow. I think that works. LL

:) Thanks so much for the information-I had no idea. I have a love/hate relationship with them. I choke them down because of the D, but I like the flavor in smoothies. It is strange that it causes so many to have looser bowels-wonder what that is all about. My son is also allergic to them --that is interesting about avocados and latex. There was another thread some time ago, where we were discussing the common links between one food allergy to another. Zack hasn't had guacamole because he would never try it because he said it looks too gross, but now I am glad he hasn't. Thanks for that information too. See how much pain and suffering you all spare us with your experiences!!!btw-penguin you are too funny. I am so glad you are on this forum. :) Edit--I once bought some bananas that had a baby tarantula on them. Gotta watch out for those nasty buggers.

This really is interesting stuff. My son has a mild oral allergy to carrots & apples. He can eat them, but they sometimes make his mouth & throat tingle. He also suffers from hay fever, & I'm sure there is a connection with the pollen proteins.
