But why are we even comparing these foods? Bananas are for sweet snacks or smoothies; portobella mushrooms are for entrees or snadwiches. You wouldn't put grilled portobella mushrooms into your smoothie any more than you'd slice up a banana on top of your grilled chicken breast.

The journey of a thousand miles begins with a single step.

mushrooms and coconut water are good. a cup of egg whites is an awful lot of them.and a cup of them has a lot of sodium which undoes the potassium. besides, they have half the pottassium.

Here's the info that I was able to find.
Also a link to the information:

Benefits Of Adding Lemon To Black Tea

Increases iron absorption
Fights free radicals
Helps in weight loss
Cleanses the body of toxins
Cures a sore throat

Unsweetened black tea, when added with a squeeze of lemon, is both therapeutic and refreshing. Lemon is rich in vitamin-C which strengthens the immune system. Both black tea and lemon have antioxidants which avoid heart and neurodegenerative diseases. The stimulant and diuretic properties help increase the metabolism and eliminate toxins. The concoction also prevents one from gaining weight.

RE: Food Fact #5...DH has rheumatoid arthritis and his doctor recommended fresh ginger for his pain. I grate it into a teapot, steep the tea, and then strain it. He says it's made a big difference in the amount of pain.
