They’re a great source of many nutrients, particularly potassium, magnesium, and B6. But really, I eat them bc they’re sooo delicious, convenient, and cheap! ❤️. We eat them almost every single day.



�Did you ever wonder what happens as they change in color? If so, here you go!

⠀green —> yellow —> brown

as the �ripens:

✅resistant starch content decreases

✅tastes sweeter - resistant starch turns into sugar

✅gets digested easier and quicker (causing a spike in the blood sugar)

✅some of the micronutrient levels decrease - happens with all produce to some degree once harvested

✅antioxidant levels increase



For babies and toddlers, really green bananas may be too hard on their little tummies and can cause or make pre-existing constipation worse.
⏰if you want to speed up the ripening process, place in a brown paper bag. if you want to slow it down then place in the refrigerator. The peel will turn brown but the inner flesh will be just fine.



Stay Fit & Stay Healthy�❤️
