AMAZING FRUITS OF BRAZIL

Amazing Fruits of Brazil
Article by Sharif Ali & Diamond Velez
 
Mulher Melao

Brazil loves and appreciates its amazing variety of tropical fruits.  They love it so much that they name many of the beautiful women here after them, lol!  See what I mean.



This list isn’t extensive…if I tried to name everything the list would go on for days.  Seriously there is more variety found here than anywhere else on the planet.  Some enterprising people have picked up on this and started marketing some of the wonder fruits found here to the world, kinda like Tahitian Noni.

People here in Bahia use natural remedies as often as possible versus prescription drugs.  Perhaps I could do a list on herbs and leaves found here and their healing properties.  I will have to research that one as the list will be extensive!  Anyone interested in that info please send a paypal donation to me at blackdiamond817@gmail.com.


Without further ado, here is the fruit list!

Abacaxí  (Pineapple)
Brazilian pineapples are the best I’ve ever had.  They are so sweet and juicy its ridiculous!  They are sweet even when green but even better ripe (bright orangish-yellow in color).  Beware though, do not eat the fruit near the stalk or bottom.  Doing so will lead to severe vomiting, and diarrhea and an overall painful feeling that will leave you wanting to die!  Believe me we found this out the hard way.

WHEN TO STOP BREASTFEEDING YOUR BABY? EASIER SAID THAN DONE!

2 comments

Choosing to breastfeeding your baby may have been a simple decision but determining when to wean a child can be difficult. When many mothers begin to breastfeeding their babies, they assume that weaning will occur naturally. For some breast fed babies, the transition form the breast to the sippy cup comes with a fight.

Nursing babies who have a difficult time adjusting to life away from the breast may be objecting to more than just weaning. Some breast fed babies crave the physical closeness of nursing more than breast milk. Determining if this is true for your child can help make the transition easier for both mother and child.

    “If Only I Could Understand Men….”

    Men always say they can’t understand women, and that women are so complicated. Well, for many women, it is the exact opposite. Most would give anything to understand what makes men “tick.” Even though women want to know what he’s thinking, men are often reluctant to share what is in their hearts. What’s a woman to do?

    Rather than describe all the differences between the sexes, it is often more helpful to focus on a few areas that any woman can understand.

    1) Men are more sensitive than women. While that might sound silly, the truth is that men don’t have the ability

    New parents often want to know what makes a newborn baby fussy. Because newborns do not have developed language skills, babies fuss and cry to alert someone of an issue that needs tending to. Newborns may seem irritable or angry because of their fussing, but chances are, your baby needs something from you, and crying is the only way he can tell you.

    HOW TO CALM A BABY BY TALKING

    0 comments

    Babies recognize the parents voice immediately (they hear you talking while in mom's belly).  When our 1st son was born the only thing that calmed him down @ the hospital room was the sound of his father's voice.  He recognized him @ that age!  We have it on tape, matter of fact.  If I can find that footage I will post it on here.

    Summary:

    A baby will recognize a parent's voice, so talk to a fussy baby. Talk to a baby with tips from a parenting instructor in this free childcare video.

    Help your baby to sleep through the night | Sleeping through the night

    Some babies may develop a pattern where they fall asleep easily but they also wake back up shortly after. This often results in mom suffering from sleep deprivation causing negativity and even depression. The average sleep cycle is 40 minutes long. A light-sleeper may easily wake up at the turn of a sleep cycle. If baby wakes up earlier than expected, mom shouldn’t immediately pick him/her up. Leave the baby as is with the Instant Baby Sleep (TM) sound track playing…You can also use another technique to teach baby to skip a wake-up.

    I think this is great for children to see.
    Teach your children to love who they are, and not to follow the trends or anyone else's negative views but to follow your heart and LOVE who you are!
