The New Year is always a great time for resolutions. What are you going to do differently in 2010? Topping the list for the largest number of Americans is either diet or exercise. That triggers a thought of health, which makes me think of bananas – organic of course.Bananas are very low in saturated fat, cholesterol and sodium. They are a good source of dietary fiber, vitamin C, potassium and manganese, and a very good source of vitamin B6. And if they’re organic, there is no chemical residue from the growing and harvesting process.
If weight loss is your resolution for 2010, try starting each day with the Japanese “Morning Banana Diet.” It took Japan by storm in 2009, and starting each day with a banana is an easy resolution to make. How about making that #1 on your list?
Happy New Year from Organics Unlimited and GROW!
Bananas for the Holidays
Bananas – the favorite fruit of Americans – often take a back seat when it comes to the holidays. We think of foods that are red and green, lots of candied this and candied that, meats and cheeses. But what about bananas?
I found this great recipe that is fat free, gluten free, festive, and it satisfies our intrinsic desire for holiday baking. Cranberries add the red, but bananas give the flavor, and much of the nutrition.
Here’s the recipe to get your season off to a great start. And it’s sure to be a hit for everyone, considering that it is still made with America’s favorite fruit!
