Fountain of Youth Food

Hold on to your hat.  We have a super food here today that is going to give our dear chia a run for its money.

Can you guess what food has the following benefits?
It’s anti-inflammatory, protects your liver, is loaded with 18 amino acids, B vitamins, and lowers bad cholesterol?

Learn fun food facts and the chef’s way to cut an avocado.  This should be called the Fountain of Youth food!

Today, Petite Child pays a very tongue in cheek homage to this super food and the late, great, European choreographer, Pina Bausch.
Have I gone mad??  I’d love to hear your comments.

    Yes you have gone completely mad! Et Je t’adore! Thank God I eat a testicle every day. ( I mean an avocat, Je m’excuse!).

    Love the dance! I’m a big fan of Pina’a.

      Merci, Alexis. What were those Aztecs thinking? Perhaps some of the maidens used said” testicles” to disguise themselves as warriors to keep from being sacrificed to the gods? Food for thought.

    Oh Maya — you are too good to be true!!! I love your videos — they are so audacious!! To give healthy nurturing advice in such a humorous irreverent way is truly delicious. I love that you enjoy so much what you’re doing and get to use all your formidable talents as a dancer. The fact that there are so many French people in your classes and listening to your parody does not inhibit you in the least. Bravo bella!! I’m in Chicago for my birthday and the Dramatist Guild conference — first chance to explore this interesting city. Last ngiht couldn’t resist dancing myself in a funky blues.jazz bar to the delight of several ladies half my age!!! The hefty singer came up later and said, “There’s no way I could have kept up with you!” I should have said, “Well you should take pilates…” rz

      From one nut to another, that means a lot. Thank you.

    Maya…..oh my!!!!!!! I will never look at an avocat the same way. LOL
    I have always loved this fruit and can never seem to get enough of them. Thanks for making me laugh again and again.

    Ahhh…some comic relief!!
    One of the greatest gifts that life has to offer, is the possibility to find our joy
    in each day …
    Maya, you exude endless joy and happiness… letting your creativity shine through…Maya we love your dance, costumes, and attempts a foreign lauguage… sharing your gifts and blessings with others…Maya, you give us great anatomical information, nutritional advice, pilates instruction, and interesting dance moves… Maya, you remind us to be grateful for the little things, to keep our hearts open, and to share new ideas…today it is as simple as reminding us to see the riches found in a simple green alligator pear…with a french accent no less! Your video’s brighten my day xoxoxo

      Camille, you are so kind. I am but your humble servant and clown. In the words of my idol, Donald O’Conner, “Make ’em laugh”. I’m just happy you get my jokes.
