30 Bananas a Day!

One  problem with the assumptions that underlie modern nutrition is that
no credence is given to the fact that the complex chemicals in our food do not exist in
isolation.

The wide variety of different substances in our food, including such things as
amino acids, vitamins and fatty acids, exist together in a convoluted matrix. When they
are broken down physically by our teeth and stomachs and with enzymes, they are
cleaved into relatively complex sub-units that still retain some integrity. Plant-based fatty
acids are wrapped in anti-oxidants to protect them against damage. When they are taken
from their environment the ideal scenario, from a consumers point of view, is that they
are assimilated in as near to their pristine condition as possible.
But, we may ask, does not the stomach with its strongly acidic conditions merely
continue the process initiated by cooking? No – many groups of complex molecules
whether designed by nature or drug companies pass through this acidic, test tube-like
apparatus and survive in an intact enough state to work their magic on our ailments.


There are endless examples that disprove the assumed notion that our food is broken
down into their component parts. The whole industry of food supplements is dependent
on complex chemicals getting through our digestive processes. How would traditional
plant remedies that use, for example, Ginkgo or St John’s Wort work if this were not the
case? The digestive process does cleave the complex chemicals in our food into usable
sub-units but this is so very different to oxidising and denaturing the molecules at high
temperatures.

it is obvious that the cooking process changes totally the structure of these sub units of complex molecules , but...what is the point with blending?

i don't want to appear as an integrist but i question myself really

i'm not used to blend , and recently i use one blender for one week...and i really feel some difference, my cal intake increase whereas my energy level was not highering , more the contrary...

i feel like a part of the food prepared with blender (mono meals) was loosing a part of it's nutriments and thus a part of his feeding ability , so i need to eat more with less finally assimilable for the body

 

may be all these questionare  a bit intellectual ,i should  have eaten one more bunch of banana yesterday , but sure it presents some interest seems to me......

so does anyone as some info about food denaturation through blending mechanical process?

If it makes you feel great. It can't really be that bad can it?

 

To be honest I can't tell you what blending does to your food. I don't know many people that have said they've had bad experiences with blended food though. Unless they've been food combining badly.

chocolate makes people feel great when they eat it........

i don't think it will lead us to failure by blending but i question myself about eating raw , ripe fresh organic food to get the max energy from them and thus avoiding the "whole" key by throwing away a part of feeding proprieties through blending.....

Then just don't blend? I don't see anything appetizing about it, either. But as for nutrient loss, it is definitely possible, especially if you don't consume your blended product almost immediately.

Chocolate makes people feel great?

 

Not necessarily. I think they're only "happier" because they're satisfying their addiction but that doesn't matter anyway. The pleasure is short lived. It doesn't bring great health or great anything really.

 

So to clarify what I meant. If it makes you feel physically and mentally great and this feeling of greatness lasts several hours and there isn't any come down besides feeling hungry again (in the case of eating fruit). It can't be that bad. :)

 

You'll have to experiment I guess. I think if you're a perfectly healthy person, eating whole fruit is probably better but I think smoothies can be good for people recovering from serious illnesses such as yourself.

definitively agree , it's a compromise but a very little one regarding to "cook world"

the aim of this post was just to question ourselves and to do choice in conscience , but not saying that ble,nding is anyway a wrong practice

indeed it helps a lot , specially beginners or ill person......

Since I was getting a little bloating and sluggishness, I've decided to stop blending my bananas, and just eat them whole with greens. The contrast and texture of today's banana meal was great.  Could be I wasn't 'chewing' the smoothie properly.

A few smoothie tips:

Take your time and chew or swirl around mouth

Use pulse function on blender instead of blending constantly. Less oxidation this way
