The alphabet of superfoods: B(anana)… 🍌

Bananas are widely known for their high levels of  potassium. (A  mineral  essential for maintaining proper heart function and regulating normal blood pressure.)

But, in fact, bananas are richer in  manganese and vitamin B6. They also contain  magnesiumcarotene and prebiotics such as fructo-oligosaccharides (FOS) which improves immunity and digestion.

As they are a good source of dietary fiber (one large banana has 3.5 g, or 9 to 14% of the recommended dietary fiber intake), they can be added to a bowl of oatmeal or bran cereal for a great high fiber meal. (For more info, see the nutritional value chart below ⏬)


Εxperts’ storage tip
Unripe bananas can not be held in home refrigerators because they suffer from the cold. Ripe bananas can be held for a few days at home. If bananas are too green, they can be put in a brown paper bag with an apple or tomato overnight to speed up the ripening process.

My storage tip: I buy them ripe and put them in the frigde fruit drawer, as they are, without any bag or wrap (in this way, they do not get black and do not over-ripe too quickly).

  1. After reading this yesterday I made banana pancakes for breakfast.

    1 mashed banana
    1 egg
    2 tbs flower

    I add chocolate chips sometimes but they are so delicious. You may know about this easy recipe but I though I would pass it along just in case.
