A banana a day!

I’ve been eating one banana in the mornings as long as I can remember. There are a lot of good benefits on mental health! Check this link:

• Bananas help overcome depression due to high levels of tryptophan, which is converted into serotonin – the happy-mood brain neurotransmitter.
• Eat two bananas before a strenuous workout to pack an energy punch and sustain your blood sugar.
• Protect against muscle cramps during workouts and nighttime leg cramps by eating a banana.
• Counteract calcium loss during urination and build strong bones by supplementing with a banana.
• Improve your mood and reduce PMS symptoms by eating a banana, which regulates blood sugar and produces stress-relieving relaxation.
• Bananas reduce swelling, protect against type II diabetes, aid weight loss, strengthen the nervous system, and help with the production of white blood cells, all due to high levels of vitamin B-6.
• Strengthen your blood and relieve anemia with the added iron from bananas.
• High in potassium and low in salt, bananas are officially recognized by the FDA as being able to lower blood pressure and protect against heart attack and stroke.


Yes, no doubt, those are great stats!

I eat an apple a day too.

I just love fruit.

yeah me too, I love fruits. I’ve been also reading really good stuff on watermelon especially to lose weight.

Don’t really like bananas
I can tolerate them in a smoothie
I like grapes, satsuma, strawberries

Perishable good are to difficult for me to keep around.

There is a brand of juice/smoothies that I drink when I’m feeling behind on my plant matter consumption.

There is a lot of sugar and acidity to them though. Can give me a headache and an upset stomach.

yeah. I have good memories of eating watermelon with my grandparents. She also ate grapefruit nearly every morning. Lived to be 96.

Grapefruit can interfere with the digestion of a lot of medications.

Had a friend tell me that not knowing I was sz. I had been drinking grapefruit ale daily for a while at that point. The more you know.
