  • You don’t need to eat bananas
    for the potassium! (Although it is present in bananas, potassium is the predominant nutrient among most all fruits and vegetables.)
  • Bananas are high in sugar,
    so they should not be eaten if you have blood sugar problems.
  • Don’t eat bananas on an empty stomach; combining them with a bit of protein will help to normalize the insulin response caused by the sugar in the banana.
  • Green-tipped bananas are better for your health than over-ripe bananas.
  • On a side note: Because bananas are so popular, rainforests are often destroyed to make way for banana plantations.

I don't eat bananas often because they are high in sugars. But I will say I Love banana bread and would eat it every day if it was good for me.

Bananas are good after you work out.

I love banana bread! I make a whole wheat one, sweetened with a little honey. If I eat a straight banana it has to be very yellow, no green or brown lol and I'm tired of people hating on Bananas for the sugar! It's still better than a snickers lol ;)

If a rain forest is not cultivated, it becomes a desert ... not an oasis.
