Bananas are awesome! There is a long list of super health benefits to eating bananas, I won’t bore you by listing them all. (Google it)
If you want to do just one thing this week, to be more healthy, simply have a banana!
They are an easy snack to grab on the go, they’re cheap, and if you don’t like the taste, blend em up in a smoothie, or bake them in a cake, there’s no excuse.
It’s not always easy to get kids to eat all the good stuff but bananas are a great place to start. I add half a mashed banana to my sons porridge in the mornings. Bananas are great for breakfast as they contain slow releasing carbs. I know that carbs have a bad reputation these days, but we really do need them. Also, you could try baking with bananas in my Breakfast Muffin Recipe here.
(Note for the calorie counters – A medium sized banana is less than 100 calories.)
(Note for the runners – Bananas help to prevent cramp)
So this week, let’s go bananas!
