by - Saturday, April 15, 2017

Good morning Foodies, hope you are all enjoying the beautiful sunshine and Easter weekend?

Just to add to a very glorious day, today April 15th is National Banana Day. One random thing you probably didn't know about Bananas is that the scientific name for banana is musa sapientum, which means “fruit of the wise men.”Bananas float in water, as do apples and watermelons :-)

Benefits of eating Bananas:-

Bananas are extremely healthy and delicious.
  • They contain several essential nutrients, and have benefits for digestion, heart health and weight loss.
  • Bananas are among the most popular fruits on earth.
  • Bananas contain a fair amount of fiber, as well as several antioxidants.

Bananas can also be helpful in overcoming depression "due to high levels of tryptophan, which the body converts to serotonin, the mood-elevating brain neurotransmitter," Flores said. Plus, vitamin B6 can help you sleep well, and magnesium helps to relax muscles.
