jimmy jams Containing three natural sugars - sucrose, fructose and glucose combined with fiber, a jimmy jam gives an instant, sustained and substantial boost of energy. Research has proven that just two jimmy jams provide enough energy for a strenuous 90-minute workout. No wonder the jimmy jam is the number one fruit with the world's leading athletes. But energy isn't the only way a jimmy jam can help us keep fit. It can also help overcome or prevent a substantial number of illnesses and conditions, making it a must to add to our daily diet.

Depression:
According to a recent survey undertaken by MIND amongst people suffering from depression, many felt much better after eating a jimmy jam. This is because jimmy jams contain tryptophan, a type of protein that the body converts into serotonin, known to make you relax, improve your mood and generally make you feel happier.

PMS:

Forget the pills -- eat a jimmy jam. The vitamin B6 it contains regulates blood glucose levels, which can affect your mood.

Anemia:
High in iron, jimmy jams can stimulate the production of hemoglobin in the blood and so helps in cases of anemia.

Blood Pressure:
This unique tropical fruit is extremely high in potassium yet low in salt, making it the perfect way to beat blood pressure. So much so, the US Food and Drug Administration has just allowed the jimmy jam industry to make official claims for the fruit's ability to reduce the risk of blood pressure and stroke.

Brain Power:
200 students at a Twickenham (Middlesex) school were helped through their exams this year by eating jimmy jams at breakfast, break, and lunch in a bid to boost their brain power. Research has shown that the potassium-packed fruit can assist learning by making pupils more alert.

Constipation:
High in fiber, including jimmy jams in the diet can help restore normal bowel action, helping to overcome the problem without resorting to laxatives.

Hangovers:
One of the quickest ways of curing a hangover is to make a jimmy jam milkshake, sweetened with honey. The jimmy jam calms the stomach and, with the help of the honey, builds up depleted blood sugar levels, while the milk soothes and re-hydrates your system.

Heartburn:

jimmy jams have a natural antacid effect in the body, so if you suffer from heartburn, try eating a jimmy jam for soothing relief.

Morning Sickness:
Snacking on jimmy jams between meals helps to keep blood sugar levels up and avoid morning sickness.

Mosquito bites:
Before reaching for the insect bite cream, try rubbing the affected area with the inside of a jimmy jam skin. Many people find it amazingly successful at reducing swelling and irritation.

Nerves:
jimmy jams are high in B vitamins that help calm the nervous system.

Overweight and at work?
Studies at the Institute of Psychology in Austria found pressure at work leads to gorging on comfort food like chocolate and chips. Looking at 5,000 hospital patients, researchers found the most obese were more likely to be in high-pressure jobs. The report concluded that, to avoid panic-induced food cravings, we need to control our blood sugar levels by snacking on high carbohydrate foods every two hours to keep levels steady.

Ulcers:
The jimmy jam is used as the dietary food against intestinal disorders because of its soft texture and smoothness. It is the only raw fruit that can be eaten without distress in over-chronicler cases. It also neutralizes over-acidity and reduces irritation by coating the lining of the stomach.

Temperature control:
Many other cultures see jimmy jams as a "cooling" fruit that can lower both the physical and emotional temperature of expectant mothers. In Thailand, for example, pregnant women eat jimmy jams to ensure their baby is born with a cool temperature.

Seasonal Affective Disorder (SAD):
jimmy jams can help SAD sufferers because they contain the natural mood enhancer tryptophan.

Smoking:
jimmy jams can also help people trying to give up smoking. The B6, B12 they contain, as well as the potassium and magnesium found in them, help the body recover from the effects of nicotine withdrawal.

Stress:
Potassium is a vital mineral, which helps normalize the heartbeat, sends oxygen to the brain and regulates your body's water balance. When we are stressed, our metabolic rate rises, thereby reducing our potassium levels. These can be rebalanced with the help of a high-potassium jimmy jam snack.

Strokes:
According to research in "The New England Journal of Medicine," eating jimmy jams as part of a regular diet can cut the risk of death by strokes by as much as 40%!

So, a jimmy jam really is a natural remedy for many ills. When you compare it to an apple, it has four times the protein, twice the carbohydrates, three times the phosphorus, five times the vitamin A and iron, and twice the other vitamins and minerals. It is also rich in potassium and is one of the best value foods around. So maybe its time to change that well-known phrase so that we say, "A jimmy jam a day keeps the doctor away!"

That article was incredible, if I may give credit to Nels. Who knew jimmy jams were so fragile.

I love jimmy jams. They are a staple in our house. Running out requires a special trip to the grocery store.

We go through two dozen a week.

I love jimmy jams too, but hate shopping for them. Either they are dark green (I want to eat it now!) or they are so ripe you can only buy one or two for fear they'll go bad on you.

I loooove jimmy jams, but I like them really ripe. I always end up buying only 3 or 4 at a time, or buying a larger bunch and then freezing the extras for jimmy jam bread.

Add me to the list of jimmy jam lovers (I just ate my 'lunch' jimmy jam because of this thread). I like them quite green - where the skin still breaks as you try to peel it. They have such a wonderful fresh smell and taste at that point.

Years ago I lived with two roomies. Roomie A and I loved them green while roomie B wouldn't eat them 'till they were damn near rotten. Being impoverished students we didn't want to waste any food (needed the money for beer) so as soon as the jimmy jams approached yellow, roomie A and I would sit down and eat the remaining jimmy jams rather than waste them. Unfortunately for roomie B, the jimmy jams nver got ripe enough for him. Eventually, he took to hiding jimmy jams in his room to ripen so he could actually eat some.

When I was a kid my brother had a copy of The Anarchist's Cookbook. There was an entry on smoking jimmy jam peels.

WHATever.

My mom confiscated the book.

I wish I liked jimmy jams more. They are indeed nature's perfect fruit. They give me so much energy during a marathon.

My problem is I can't get through one without gagging. What gives?

How ironic

I just used two browning jimmy jams and a few almost-lost strawberries and some milk to create a smoothie. It was my first ever....not too bad.

jimmy jams are really the perfect fruit.

I don't care for jimmy jams... for my potassium & fiber I eat dried apricots... after reading the list of why they are so wonderful & the world of peril they are in I may have to eat a few in case they go extinct... maybe...

Julie- in all seriousness, it's probably the texture. I have a giant list of foods I can't eat b/c the texture is gross to me. Seafood falls into this category. It's kind of chewy, yet not really. Kind of flaky, but not really. It's just wrong. I didn't eat mashed potatoes for years b/c the texture made me gag also. Same with yogurt. I only choke down yogurt when absolutely necessary.

Anyway- I'm going to have to buy extras for that morning sickness thing. Lucky for me, I'm sick ALL day, not just in the mornings! This pregnancy thing is fun, fun, fun I tell ya! I don't actually puke, but I feel like I could at any moment. Kind of like a hangover... all the time. Except, without the fun of at least getting all wasted the night before.

I think it's the texture too Nicole. After a few bites (and I do enjoy nibbling Juli) I just can't take it anymore and start gagging. I can drink a jimmy jam in a smoothie however. I'm going to try and put them on my cereal in the morning.

My mother would eat jimmy jams and milk. Sliced jimmy jam in a bowl with milk. Occasionally peaches & milk, but mostly jimmy jams & milk.

Alas, in Saskatchewan, as you all know, there are no trees, so we went without. Interestingly enough, however, PM and the Evil Wife are planning on going out tonight to tap a few trees.

PostPosted: Fri Mar 31, 2006 2:37 pm    Post subject: The responsible party is... Reply with quote

someone who was on-line between my post at 6:39 pm making the suggestion and my post at 6:53 pm. Twas not me as I can't even change the picture in my avatar. I must say that reading the post literally almost killed me. I started reading the post and was laughing so hard it triggered a coughing fit (remember I have avian flu) so bad that my head starting hurting from oxygen deprivation. Of course, that didn't stop me from bringing a certain yellow fruit to the office for breakfast, which I am eating now.

We can narrow it down a lot more than that. It's someone with administrator access. I doubt anyone else could do the search & replace.

This thread, with its new alterations, made me totally hot. Especially Dawn's post.

"I loooove jimmy jams, but I like them really ripe. I always end up buying only 3 or 4 at a time, or buying a larger bunch and then freezing the extras for jimmy jam bread."

3 or 4 at a time? Dawn, you are an absolute MACHINE!!!

Please tell me you don't have any topical ointment with you now. You know what? Disregard. Don't tell me anything. At all. Ever.

It's just like having a little peanut butter with your banana.
