It’s been brought to my attention by Janetha at meals & moves that today is National Banana Lovers Day! I’ve already begun celebrating!!!
I just ate a Banana Nut Vitatop (my fav of all Vitatops), which has a mere 100 calories and 5 grams of fiber. It also has 15 vitamins and minerals, and that sounds good to me!
I’m gonna follow up my muffintop (ha) with my daily banana. I love this fruit so much that I eat one each and every day for breakfast. Another reason I eat them so frequently is that they go bad so quickly after I purchase them. I should really have one of those banana stands that my mom has.
Do those banana stands REALLY keep bananas fresh longer? Let me know if you have any facts on that. Speaking of banana stands brings to mind my favorite TV show: Arrested Development. Any Arrested fans out there? Hollaaaa!
I’ll probably have a banana as my after-dinner dessert, too. I don’t really keep traditional desserty things at home because I might go wild on them, so I always have bananas waiting for me on the counter for when the sweetness urge strikes.
Can someone eat too many bananas? Two a day isn’t bad, right? They’re a good source of vitamin B6, vitamin A, and potassium, and they have some fiber, so I say why not! Better than other snack choices out there.
Well, I mentioned at the end of last night’s post that I hoped my next post would be more focused. It sure is bananarific today! Are you going to incorporate the heavenly yellow fruit into your diet today? If I had a Magic Bullet (hint hint, Mom and Dad … my birthday’s coming up in less than a month and a half …), I would totally make a smoothie with a banana today. What are you gonna have? Go bananas!!!!
