Are your banana's ripe?
I only learned this year that bananas are actually perfectly ripe and ready to eat, when they look just like the ones in this picture above.
Before this they are not actually fully ripe and don't contain as many antioxidant as they do when they are fully ripened with the little black spots on them. According to Japanese scientific research bananas with little black spots are 8 times as effective as underripe bananas, in combatting abnormal cells in our body. Wow that is pretty impressive!!
Bananas are also high in Vitamin C, Vitamin B6, potassium and a good source of fibre. Bananas are high on carbohydrates and sugar, but NO bananas WON'T make you fat!!! They are fruit. If you're worried about fat, cut the milk, cut the cheese, cut the fats. But don't cut back on bananas or fruits. They really are natures perfect food.
Fruit is best eaten on an empty stomach as fruit digests much quicker than say bread or heavier foods. Fruit even digests quicker than veggies. So best eaten on an empty stomach and left alone in there for at least a couple of hours so it can digest in peace without the interruption of other foods being thrown in on top of it.
So boys and girls... EAT YOUR BANANAS!! lots of love Claire XX
