I love bananas! But have TATTRAT's problem often. Most times I can only eat a 1/2 a one at a time. Or a fingerling one, if I can find them. Love them on cornflakes.
And I love fried plantain - in the same family - no?
I'm glad they're good for us. Thanks for the info, Mama.

Another benefit of bananas that I did not see on the list was that they are great if you get a muscle crap. The potassium goes to work very quickly to relieve the cramp.

Snopes I agree with GB though, lots of other folks think it is a problem.

How ironic? I'm eating a banana right now! My daughter always eats a banana before tennis practice or a match, who knew it was so great for other things. We love 'em so I guess I'll buy even more of 'em now. I'll start putting them on her pancakes in the mornings...wouldn't hurt to give a little brain boost for school.

Thanks for posting this! *high five*

I love bananas, but they always go bad so quickly. Is it true that you can ut them in the fridge and they will keep better, even if the skin does go black?

I don't know...they never stay around long enough in my house to go bad! I'd be interested in hearing the answer though.

ETA: The green bags work miracles with my other fruits and veggies...so maybe they will also do well with bananas. I'm going to give it a try and see how long bananas last in there. I'd better buy an extra bunch, cause we will attack them as soon as I take them out of the grocery bag. lol

I have to eat mine on the green side as well. Can't stand mushy overripe ones and just cannot eat banana bread either (though my son loved it and I made it often).

If they start to get too ripe for my taste, I peel them and pop them into a freezer bag. From there they are ready for the healthiest smoothies ever! Add some other fruit (frozen berries are my favorite), a scoop of protein powder, a splash of soy milk or juice and a dab of honey. mmmmm Breakfast lunch or snack in about two minutes.
