30 Bananas a Day!

... from the time when I used to cook?

Natural dyes for clothes. It's amazing how many herbs and flowers etc that can be used: 

Here's a list: (ingredients used separately or together)

green: spinach, artichoke, grass, nettle, peppermint

yellow/wheat: bay leaves, red clover, alfaalfa seeds, celery leaves, tea, paprika, turmeric

red/purple: hibiscus, beluga black lentils

blue/purple:red cabbage, mulberries, grapes, blueberries, blackberries, indigo leaves, elderberries

pink: rose+lavender+lemon+mint (also a tasty lemonade), strawberry, cherry, pink roses, plum skins

brown: cinnamon, tea, coffe grinds, walnut shells, acorns, juniper berries

black/grey: rusty nails+ vinegar, carob pods, walnut hulls

orange: eucalyptus, carrots, turmeric

Also: some mushrooms can give very intense colors (red, blue, purple).

Love this.  Some ladies also like to make lipsticks and cosmetics from these natural items.  

Peace, PK

Better to use chili as a natural dye (the color will be a muted shade of it's original color), than put it in our bodies. Chili creates pain when ingested, the body will respond by sending our own biological painkiller, (called endorphin ?), and this is why people get addicted to chili: the "high" they feel after having endured a very spicy meal.

I've seen amazing chili tolerance in countries like Thailand and India. Chili is addictive, I have experienced it myself, while travelling, when I was a vegetarian. Somehow you get to used to the "pain", and want more of it.

nice, do you know what color/shade it gives?

And for red, you can use beets, rose, or ripe blackberries. Also a plant called St John wort.
