Have you ever seen what your bananas looked like on the tree before they got to you? Ever seen someone harvest bananas? Well, here’s your chance! Because Chris loooves to harvest bananas and we loooove to EAT bananas!!! We are very lucky to have a pretty good size banana orchard here on our property. We go through a lot of bananas as they are a wonderful base for the PERFECT GREEN smoothie. And we loooove green smoothies! 🙂

So here is a video of Chris harvesting bananas: (and the property dog, Bella) <—– No I didn’t name her!!!

    Ahhh… what I wouldn’t give to enjoy a green smoothie… fresh from the banana tree, in Maui with you guys! I was a raw foodist for a year, and it literally revolutionized my body. Imagine doing this on the island… what incredible fresh fruit bliss there must be there… Miss you and you both look radiant. Much Love! ~R

    ooo oooo ooo ooo ( Monkey Sounds) Looks like something a monkey would be doing? You guys are the best looking monkeys I have ever seen. I think you guys should run for office because this is the best health bill I have seen in a long time.

    Keep it up you are inspiring and more a part of Maui then most I know after all this time.

    Maui and our family thank you for sharing and caring. (we like rhyming and rapping it is just more fun with chu)
