|Factoid: A banana is the most unique of all fruit because unlike any other fruit it does not come from trees. Instead it comes from giant herbs plants and are related to lily and orchid family.|
Bananas are rich in vitamin B6 and are an excelent source of fiber, vitamin C, magnesium and potassium. Lack of B6 in a diet can cause weakness, irritability and insomnia. The potassium found in bananas helps to regulate blood pressure and may reduce the risk of high blood pressure and stroke. Unless of course your girlfriend's roommate looks like this ??
Potassium is also essential for helping muscles to contract properly during exercise and reduces cramping. Think about a time when you wouldn't want to cramp up.
A medium-sized banana provides 400 mg of potassium - 11% of daily value and contains 110 calories with 4 grams of fiber. Bananas also contain plenty of carbohydrates which are the body's main source of energy. They are also easy to digest.
Researche also shows that serotonin and norepinephrine in bananas may naturally help sufferers overcome depression. They are the good mood food. Especially if it's a man watching a girl eat a banana.
Bananas are good for making babies... ur... uh... I menat babies, bananas are good for actual babies.
Green tipped bananas should be selected for cooking or ripening, yellow ones should be selected for eating and brown-specked ones should be selected for baking breads, muffins and cookies. As the bananas ripen, they will taste sweeter because the starch in the fruit will turn to sugar. Store your bananas on the counter at room temperature until they reach the ripeness you desire. The peel of the fruit will darken in the refrigerator but the banana inside will remain firm and delicious. To ripen a banana faster, place it in a brown paper bag with an apple or tomato overnight.
