I'm crazy about Bananas!!!
Bananas are a good source of fiber, potassium, vitamin C and a very good source of vitamin B6. A medium to large banana has about 100-125 calories. You can add a banana to your cereal in the morning, a smoothie after a hard workout, or for dessert mix vanilla yogurt with banana and granola. Banana bread can also be a very healthy alternative and interesting change especially when adding wheat germ, ground flaxseed, whole grains and chopped nuts. Bananas can help guard against atherosclerosis, support eye health, strengthen bones, regulate the digestive system, and keep away stomach ulcers. Eating bananas on a regular basis may also help lower the risk of developing kidney disease. So go ahead, get crazy about bananas too. Just be creative with it.
Do you have a sweet tooth? The weather is getting warmer and the grills are slowly coming out. It's easy to make fruit kebabs, for a nutrient-packed and energy-boosting dessert. Pineapples, bananas, apples, and pears are great raw, but they also cook well when placed either directly on the grill or wrapped in aluminum foil first. Serve with a nonfat yogurt or fat-free whipped cream. This tasty treat will have your family and guests begging for more fruit!
