Benefits of Eating Bananas
They are loaded with Potassium which is good for heart health.
You can pack one in your lunch bag easily for a healthy snack because of their thick skin which makes it easy to carry with you.
Bananas are also a good source of fiber which is good for digestive health.
They are extremely versatile and can be eaten raw or cooked, mashed or whole.
Bananas are naturally sweet and make a good addition to fruit smoothies without needing added sweetener.
Fresh bananas are available year round.
You can even freeze bananas to use later. Peel them first. I freeze them in a plastic reseal bag and be sure to mark the date on front first.
Use a Banana hanger to store your bananas on the kitchen counter, available on Amazon here.
